Kansas City, MO (April 12, 2011) Unite Private Networks (UPN) announced today its participation in the second Oklahoma Land Rush, one hundred years after the original. Eight school districts are moving forward with fiber-optic Wide Area Networks to link their facilities together with high-speed connections.

“The Administrative and Technology leadership at these districts should be commended as pioneers just like their ancestors over a century ago. Learning is more effective, through the use of technology, for the students of today’s generation. They have grown up with it, utilize it in the personal lives, and have come to expect it at school,” noted UPN Vice President of Business Development, Martin Mueller.

Atoka, Bartlesville, Drumright, Geronimo, Meeker, Pauls Valley, Tuttle, and Woodward Public Schools join the fast growing number of school districts across the country providing their students, staff and administration with the speed and reliability of a fiber-optic network from UPN.

“These networks will significantly expand our customer footprint in the state of Oklahoma,” said Rob Oyler, UPN Chief Marketing Officer. These schools will now be able to experience the advantages of GigE fiber and leverage it for major advances in the way education is delivered.

UPN provides high-bandwidth, fiber-based communications networks to schools, government, carriers, data centers, hospitals, and enterprise business customers. UPN currently has customers located in 19 states throughout the U.S.
