Pasadena Independent School District will be the first school district In Texas to provide its own private, self-managed, high speed, wireless LTE broadband network for students at home, the district said.
The district partnered with M&A Technology, Inc., a Dallas based full service technology provider with a 30-year history of supporting Texas school districts, to install the latest generation of 4G-LTE broadband technology at 15 school locations, which is linked to the district´s network.
This new era of 4G-LTE technology will deliver high-speed Internet access to students to meet the demands of the 21st century learner and expand opportunities for both enrichment and skill development.
This school-to-home technology initiative has now entered the field testing phase. Students, parents and educators will soon have a new tool to extend their learning beyond their time in the classroom.
