School districts are caught between a rock and a hard place when it comes to technology funding. The rock is the budget, which is usually stretched to the max. The hard place is the relentless need for new technologies.
Connectivity is critical in today’s educational environment. Students must have access to data across multiple locations. Students need to communicate on a wide scale. And students are increasingly required to submit assignments on various digital platforms.
Failure to provide the necessary technologies will ultimately isolate students.
Maintaining broadband connectivity is an expensive and highly inefficient prospect.
School districts, on average, serve at least 30,000 students. Their networking needs rival those of Fortune 500 companies, yet capacity largely sits idle after the school day ends. Cash-strapped schools require a better networking solution.
Many districts are turning to CBTS for Network as a Service (NaaS).
CBTS NaaS is managed via a user-friendly dashboard that provides complete visibility into the network. The solution evolves without complex hardware deployments, disruption of service, or gaps in security.
NaaS enables districts to move from a fixed capital cost (CapEx) to an on-demand operational cost (OpEx). This means schools only pay for what they need.
The CBTS managed Network as a Service portfolio provides school systems reliable network access. The solution meets connectivity needs in a number of ways:
NaaS also allows school districts to remain on the cutting edge of networking technology.
CBTS clients enjoy the most advanced technologies when they become available. These technologies include intelligent analytics, software-defined network architectures, and Power-over-Ethernet (PoE).
CBTS helps clients quickly implement new technologies with no downtime or security risks. CBTS can fully manage your NaaS stack, or we can custom-tailor our engagement based on your organization’s needs.
School systems must deliver a wide range of digital services to remain relevant. This requires an advanced, flexible, and cost-efficient network.
School districts that leverage the CBTS NaaS solution are better equipped to enhance the educational experience for students. These school districts will enjoy improved performance and ensure cost efficiencies for administration, parents, and taxpayers.
