JerseyConnect to offer managed Wi-Fi solution to libraries with funding help from E-rate Central

The New Jersey State Library will provide a Managed Wi-Fi solution through the JerseyConnect program that will be available to all libraries in New Jersey. The solution will be a cloud-based management application that allows the state library to manage the access points on behalf of participating libraries. This solution will be offered to all libraries, including libraries that do not connect to the JerseyConnect network.

E-Rate Central has filed a statewide form 470 and will assist libraries in applying for E-Rate funds to offset these costs. Those interested in the managed Wi-Fi solution should contact the New Jersey State Library or E-Rate Central using the contact information below.
