Due to the incredible capabilities of this network, it will be the last one they ever need.

WANRack now serves K-12 students with private fiber networks across 14 states with the completion of a customer implementation in southeast Arkansas. The new network for Dumas Public Schools provides a 100-fold increase in speed over its previous network, delivering 50 Gigabits per second (Gbps) of collective bandwidth from the hub to five edge sites across the district.

“WANRack is proud to be a leading provider of fiber optic networks to K-12 students and staff in 14 states across the nation,” said Rob Oyler, WANRack CEO. “Our unique value proposition allows customers to have unlimited bandwidth growth at a fixed price. Due to the incredible capabilities of this network, it will be the last one they ever need. We look forward to expanding our footprint throughout Arkansas and into several additional states in the coming months.”

The new WANRack network in Dumas, completed earlier this summer, serves students and staff in five district locations. It provides network speeds of 10Gbps in each building, allowing Dumas Public Schools to fully utilize the bandwidth provided by the State of Arkansas.

The geography of the Dumas implementation presented a unique set of engineering and permitting issues that enabled WANRack to demonstrate its industry leadership and expertise. Decision makers at Dumas Public Schools are thrilled with the outcome and thoroughly impressed by their choice of service provider.

“WANRack offered our district a phenomenal value, delivered precisely what was promised, and resolved every obstacle with skill and professionalism,” said Joshua Rodgers, Technology Coordinator for Dumas Public Schools. “Our campuses can now take advantage of premiere online digital resources, many of which were difficult or impossible to leverage before due to the cost of bandwidth from the local telephone company.”

WANRack has a unique design model, allowing the company to provide lit or dark fiber solutions. A WANRack network provides superior bandwidth, scalability and security as compared to traditional cable or telephone company offerings, often at a significant cost savings.
