we couldn’t believe it was possible, said Greg Rabenhorst, Superintendent.

WANRack, a leading fiber wide area network (WAN) provider, today announced the release of a new case study sharing one district’s response to challenges faced by inferior wireless infrastructure.

The paper, titled “Weld County School District RE-3J” demonstrates how a Private Fiber WAN can be attainable to any K-12 school district, nationwide. The case study compares and contrasts challenges of a wireless network versus advantages gained by implementing a Private Fiber infrastructure as a technology foundation. What seemed financially impossible for Weld County became reality in short order.

“Monthly costs for the new 10 Gigabit WAN are less than the district was paying for vastly inferior 400 Megabit wireless microwave service”, said Greg Rabenhorst, Superintendent of Weld County RE-3J Schools. “We couldn’t believe it was possible!”

WANRack specializes in providing private fiber optic WAN solutions for K-12 school districts nationwide. A unique design model allows the company to provide lit or dark fiber solutions that provide superior bandwidth, unlimited scalability and security as compared to traditional cable or telephone company offerings, often at a significant cost savings.

“When schools realize they can deploy their own Private Fiber WAN, they control their own long term destiny. Never again will bandwidth growth or finances be inhibited by a greedy vendor”, said Rob Oyler, CEO & Founder of WANRack. “When you understand how a district conducts business, almost every facet of the organization depends on technology. Bandwidth is now the 3rd utility. When you have an unlimited supply at a fixed long term cost, the calculus changes fast. We’re very excited E-Rate has recognized this fundamental need at the WAN level and look forward to helping schools upgrade.”
