Adtran Brings Faster Learning to Ohio Schools

adtran ohioAdtran spent the month of June collaborating with Consolidated Electric Cooperative. This was done to further act on their ‘Enabling Communication, Connecting Lives’ campaign. The focus of the campaign is to improve rural and urban growth and development, from enhancing small business to connecting classrooms worldwide. Adtran is offering their world-class Wi-Fi and fiber-based Gigabit broadband and Cloud connectivity solutions to local businesses in Ohio, as well as 15 school districts. These schools will receive faster Internet speeds in order to perform learning and testing online, fully integrating technology into the classroom.

As technology continues to evolve every day, all levels of education are using it. This now includes the average K-12 classroom. Teachers and administers feel technology will help students to learn faster and at a higher level, producing more well-rounded minds capable of both basic knowledge and advanced use of technology.

Adtran’s VP of Service Provider Sales, Mitch Fleming, stated, “Adtran is leading the drive for enhanced online learning in school districts across the country, with FTTH solutions that connect schools at Gigabit speeds. Our solutions help providers, such as Consolidated Electric Cooperative, deliver Gigabit broadband services that maximize cloud connectivity, making next generation collaboration, online learning and testing applications a reality.”

Adtran joined forces with Consolidated Electric Cooperative because they provide energy and telecommunications services to a wide range of customers. They currently have a partnership with META solutions which supplies school districts throughout Ohio with Internet access. The three companies are working together to deliver the fastest broadband to Ohio students to help aide their daily learning capabilities.

Tim Snyder, CTO of META Solutions, stated, “By working closely with Consolidated Electric Cooperative and ADTRAN, Ohio school districts now have the necessary speeds to meet online learning demands along with new and future mandates.”
