Unite Private Networks, LLC, (UPN) announced plans to build a fiber-optic network throughout Caroline County, Virginia. The network deployment will provide UPN with a strategic position along the I-95 corridor between Richmond, Virginia and Washington D.C. UPN recently signed a long-term contract to provide fiber-optic wide area network (WAN) services to the Caroline County School District.
UPN provides high-bandwidth, fiber-based communications networks to schools, government, carriers, data centers, hospitals and enterprise business customers. UPN currently has customers located in 19 states throughout the U.S.
“Bandwidth is now the 3rd utility behind power and water”, said Rob Oyler, UPN’s CMO & EVP of Sales. “With a UPN provided WAN, schools can lock-in a long term fixed price for virtually unlimited bandwidth. When districts understand the power of this model they quickly wonder why they didn’t sign up with us years ago. No incumbent provider will offer them the flexibility and growth potential of a UPN provided WAN, period.
The Fiber Optic WAN will be hundreds of times faster than the district’s current network. It will also allow the district to expand exponentially in the future with no ceiling on growth, unlike anything they could have received from their current vendor.
“UPN was very thorough and understood our bandwidth needs from the beginning”, said Wade Murray, IT Director for Caroline County Schools. We were very surprised to find a vendor out there who was willing to build us a network capable of growing with us for decades to come. We put them through the ringer with calls to current customers and asking very pointed questions throughout the evaluation period. They were a hands-down clear choice when the long term economics were realized.”
