Brief Session Description: Major carriers are nearly complete with the rollout of 4G LTE and some are even beginning the shutdown of 3G networks. Kajeet is working with 6 major carriers in the U.S. and Canada - Verizon, AT&T, U.S. Cellular, Sprint, T-Mobile and Bell Mobility - to provide Education Broadband™ service for schools, libraries, non-profits, foundations and other entities across the education landscape. In this session we will highlight the many use cases of LTE including Student Access, School Bus Wi-Fi, fixed wireless Primary access, failover Backup access and more. Santa Fe Public Schools CTO Tom Ryan will describe their implementation of Rolling Study Halls on their buses and LTE Backup Connectivity following a fiber outage last fall.
