St Marys University Amps Up Network for Esports Arena

St. Mary's University in Texas has partnered with Spectrum Enterprise to establish the institution's new Spectrum Esports Arena and power it with a dedicated Fiber Internet Access circuit. The high-performance network is designed to meet the demands of data-intensive video-streaming applications and optimize the gaming experience, according to a news announcement.

"By partnering in the rapidly growing world of esports, St. Mary's and Spectrum Enterprise will work together to provide Rattler students and gamers an interactive experience with unmatched connectivity," said Robert Coleman, St. Mary's director of athletics, in a statement.

"We thank Spectrum Enterprise for its significant commitment to our University, Esports program and, most importantly, to our students," said St. Mary's University President Thomas Mengler. "Spectrum Enterprise's support aids us in continuing our Catholic and Marianist mission for future generations of Rattlers through this exciting new medium of education, connection and competition in esports."

The university's Rattler Esports Program will compete in intercollegiate varsity play beginning this fall. The Spectrum Esports Arena will also be used for casual gaming and intramural opportunities.
