E-rate Resources & Information for Schools
The USAC (Universal Service Administrative Company) E-rate program helps eligible schools to afford modern wireless networks and, in most cases, fund their continued support and management. Schools who have obtained E-rate funds, are successfully using them towards:
Implementing new wireless and switching networks to create a reliable, secure learning environment.
Increasing the security and throughput at their network’s perimeter with modern firewalls or perimeter infrastructure to capitalize on increasing bandwidth levels.
- Obtaining managed WiFi services support, such as 24x7 network monitoring and critical incident response, avoiding the need to solely rely on internal resources who may not have the required skillsets or capacity.
