Unite Private Networks Signs WAN Agreement With Lovejoy (TX) School District
KANSAS CITY, MO, Feb 27, 2013 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
Unite Private Networks (UPN) today announced a multi-year agreement
to provide fiber-optic Wide Area Network (WAN) services to the
Lovejoy Independent School District located in the
Allen/Lucas/Fairview, TX markets. The fiber-optic network will
connect all District facilities and provide a minimum of one Gigabit
of communications bandwidth to each site. UPN plans to begin
construction immediately and expects completion within six months.
Tina Phillips, Director of Technology, states, "Enhancement and
expansion of the Lovejoy ISD network will enable us to provide a
stable, robust network for our staff and students across the
District. We look forward to our partnership with Unite Private
Networks to help us accomplish our technology goals."
According to Jason Adkins, SVP Sales at UPN, the fiber-optic WAN will
be a key component to the District's network expansion. Unlike what
the district is currently using, the Unite Private Network
state-of-the-art solution of providing dedicated fiber to each
building site, allows the district future unlimited bandwidth and
growth potential. "We are looking forward to beginning construction
on this project and developing a long term relationship with Tina and
her team. We are thrilled the Lovejoy Independent School District
chose us to help accomplish their technology goals."
UPN provides high-bandwidth, fiber-based communications networks and
related services to schools, governments, carriers, data centers,
hospitals, and enterprise business customers located in 18 states.
"This new network will connect with and complement the existing fiber
network that UPN has throughout the Dallas metro area," said Kevin
Anderson, UPN CEO. "The nearly unlimited bandwidth provided by
fiber-optic facilities allows our services to easily and quickly
expand as the needs of customers grow over time. Most of our
customers enter into long-term, fixed-priced contracts that allow
them to lock-in their future communications costs while providing
them with flexible solutions to meet their ever-growing bandwidth
