Network Nebraska-Education; Success through Collaboration


Tom Rolfes, Education I.T. Manager, State of Nebraska



Network Nebraska-Education is one of the youngest statewide networks but now interconnects over 95% of their public K-20 educational institutions in a completely voluntary, self-funded effort, with one of the lowest Internet rates in the country. Attend this plenary session to find out how they got to where they are and lessons learned along the way.
