Paradise Valley Expands eLearning with Wireless System
Paradise Valley Unified School District in Arizona is deploying a high-capacity wireless system to enable IPTV and VoIP applications and expand the district's electronic learning capabilities. The system is being supplied by Ceragon Networks and implemented by Network Infrastructure Corp.
Specifically, Paradise Valley USD will deploy Ceragon’s Gigabit Ethernet and Fast Ethernet solutions to connect schools to the District Administration Center.
Said Paradise Valley USD Director of Technology Jeff Billings, "... Paradise Valley Unified School District will gain inter-site connectivity, greater network capacity, and improved availability, all with an anticipated cost savings as we will no longer need to pay to lease T-1 lines to connect our school district network. Our students and teachers will enjoy an improved educational experience through advanced communications, IPTV, and eLearning applications.”
Paradise Valley USD serves nearly 34,000 students in 30 elementary schools, eight middle schools, six high schools, and a variety of alternative programs.
