Conterra Broadband to Provide Judson Independent School District 10 Gigabit Fiber Broadband Services

Charlotte, NC and San Antonio, TX; January 5, 2015- Conterra Broadband Services, a national provider of optical fiber-based Ethernet solutions, has been awarded a multi-year contract to deploy a private optical fiber based WAN network infrastructure to support Internet access, data, video and Voice over IP (VoIP) transport services for the Judson Independent School District (“JISD”). The all fiber network will connect the district’s schools and administrative facilities with multiple network hub sites.

When completed, the fiber optical network will provide 10 gigabit symmetrical connectivity to each school location and is scalable to 100 gigabits per location with no supplementary construction.  Conterra monitors, manages, and supports its networks on a 24x7x365 basis and guarantees network performance and reliability.

According to Steve Young the JISD Chief Technology Officer, “With our accelerated video program applications including our cloud-based environment to support our one-to-one tablet initiative and other emerging technologies, a fast, secure and reliable wide area network is essential for our curriculum”. Mr. Young added “Conterra Broadband will provide us with a highly-reliable, scalable, private WAN that will deliver dedicated 10 Gbps to every JISD location. In our current cloud-based environment this is essential for student learning.”

Conterra’s EVP of Sales and Marketing, Greg Spraetz, cited, “We are very excited about this award to support the JISD and appreciate their confidence in our ability to execute and deliver a world class fiber based network.  It underscores our continued commitment to offer school districts custom network solutions based on their individual technical requirements and long term planning that support the exponential surge of bandwidth demand in the education sector”.

Conterra’s fiber broadband networks support the convergence of integrated data, video and voice services, from potentially multiple providers, onto a single network platform resulting in an overall enhancement to network and applications performance.  Conterra monitors, maintains and supports its networks on a 24x7x365 basis and guarantees network performance and reliability.
