Delivering network solutions for education

For over 20 years, Unite Private Networks has been providing WAN and E-Rate expertise to over 250 school districts nationwide.

OPTIMAL DESIGN – Unite Private Networks offers an optimal design that utilizes, at a minimum, a one (1) GigE connection to all facilities via home run fiber from every location back to the hub site (hub and spoke design). There is no sharing of bandwidth among district locations. Most cable or ILEC offerings quote GigE, but cannot guarantee the service without related oversubscription.

1 OR 10 GIG – School districts are looking for ways to keep up with the many demands of increased devices and digital learning applications. UPN can help school districts step up to these demands with an E-rate compliant solution. Our fiber networks offer high bandwidth solutions that exceed the guidelines supported by the ConnectED initiative and are included in the FCC E-Rate Modernization Reform Order. In fact, most recently several of our Districts have implemented 10 Gbps networks to their schools.

CONTROL – Districts can also have full control over routing protocol. Easy network controls allow schools to reconfigure bandwidth without the need to submit an order or wait for implementation.  This certainly is not an option with most ILEC or Cable company offerings. Flexibility and service are the hallmarks of UPN.

EXPERIENCE –  For over 20 years, UPN has been providing this needed capacity to school districts across 21 states. In fact, we currently partner with over 1700 schools across 250+ districts with speeds of 1 gigabit or higher. Overall UPN has 10,000 fiber route miles and over 6,500 on-net buildings.
