Our partnership with CDI will help educational institutions guarantee that the most important applications always have the bandwidth they need to make digital learning possible

CDI Computer Dealers, the largest refurbisher of technology equipment to education in North America, and Exinda - creators of Exinda Network Orchestrator, the industry’s first WAN (Wide Area Network) Orchestration Solution, are proud to announce a partnered campaign designed to empower the educators in K-12 and higher education to deliver quality Internet experience to students and teachers.

The partnership comes as CDI, a company serving the education sector for the last 19 years, continues to expand its umbrella of IT infrastructure offerings. Exinda will now introduce its innovative WAN orchestration approach as a key supplement to the CDI product line, enabling educational institutes to optimize K-12 and campus network usage by protecting valuable bandwidth. Exinda Network Orchestrator solution monitors Internet and application traffic and allows for bandwidth allocation by school, user, group and time of day, eliminating wasteful consumption.

“One of the critical challenges faced in schools and universities is the recreational traffic generated by sites like YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Bit Torrent and many others,” said John Babcock, Vice President of IT Infrastructure at CDI. “This undesired traffic steals bandwidth from critical applications, leading to slow response times and diminished productivity. The school districts are forced to prematurely upgrade bandwidth and invest in higher capacity networks thus taxing school budgets. The WAN orchestration solution, which now CDI will provide in collaboration with Exinda, will help schools and universities to precisely tackle this challenge,” Babcock concluded.

“As technology in the classroom evolves, the challenge of delivering a quality Internet experience to teachers and students becomes more difficult,” said Michael Sharma, CEO of Exinda. “Our partnership with CDI will help educational institutions guarantee that the most important applications always have the bandwidth they need to make digital learning possible.”
