Strategic Partnerships

Strategic Partnerships

MOREnet operates a cost-effective, shared fiber-optic network for Missouri’s K-12 school districts, higher education institutions, public libraries and government agencies.

Due to its current configuration, robust design and data center proximity, the MOREnet shared network presents significant opportunities for members to realize both financial savings and performance benefits, leveraging the overall network investment. MOREnet is establishing strategic partnerships with vendors to offer solutions to meet members’ critical business needs. Some of these partnerships will directly connect specific vendor networks to the MOREnet network. By doing this, both networks reduce the amount of transit network services they require, improve response times and improve performance of the applications running between them.
