Kajeet Connect Suite

Kajeet has historically focused on closing the Homework Gap outside the classroom, but digital equity begins in school with reliable, safe Internet access.

Kajeet is excited to announce a new suite of products, Kajeet Connect, bringing our Education Broadband™ expertise onto school grounds.

Protect Critical IT Functions: Failover When Schools Need it Most

Over one-third of school districts experience one day or more of unplanned network downtime every year according to a 2017 CoSN report, a statistic that has remained relatively unchanged since 2014.

During an outage, cloud services and digital resources cannot be accessed by teachers, students, or administrators. And as school districts move to SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) or VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) for their phone networks, protecting critical IT functions becomes paramount.

Imagine a wire gets cut outside, now communication is down from the school to any other building entirely. In the case of an emergency, losing outside communication could make a bad situation worse.

This is where a failover solution can help.

Kajeet Connect BackUp™ is an automated failover solution if your school building routers lose Internet connectivity. Whether your building loses Internet connectivity once, or routinely faces outages, it is critical to have a plan in place.

Are you looking to protect your school's IT infrastructure with a failover solution? Contact Kajeet today to get started.


But Kajeet Connect BackUp is more than just a failover solution. It uses the same filtering technology as the other Kajeet products with filters that allow your school or district to prioritize what should be allowed and denied during an outage. The entire solution is easily managed within our cloud-based platform, Sentinel®.

Contact Kajeet today to learn how our failover solution can help your school or district maintain network uptime.

Internet Access at Any School Building

EducationSuperHighway reports 2.3 million students still lack access to high-speed Internet from the confines of their schools. Whether this is due to poor LAN infrastructure, lack of wiring capability, an offsite location, budgetary, or any other reason, these students find themselves facing digital inequity.

Students without Internet at their school location fall behind on digital learning and improving their technological skills, something 98 percent of their U.S. peers are working on just by having Internet access.

In 2014, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) created the E-rate Modernization order with three goals in mind:

  1. Ensure affordable access to high-speed broadband to support digital learning in schools and connectivity for libraries.
  2. Maximize the cost effectiveness of E-rate spending.
  3. Make the E-rate application simple and fast.

The FCC’s goal is to connect every student to 1 Megabit per second (1 Mgps) Internet access. And though the U.S. is very close to hitting that goal, many students still lack access in their school buildings.

Kajeet Connect Prime™ ensures every school building can connect to the Internet consistently, without being tethered to a typical landline.

With Kajeet Connect Prime, you will be able to:

  • Connect on any of the six major 4G LTE wireless providers in North America.
  • Manage your data, view analytics, and run reports in Kajeet Sentinel, our innovative cloud portal.
  • Customize filters for optimized, educational use.
  • Rollover unused data monthly.
  • And more!

 

Find out how to connect any school building by contacting our team of Education Broadband experts today.

The Kajeet Connect Suite gives schools reliable, safe, and affordable solutions to maintain uptime during a network interruption or a long-term solution for primary Internet connectivity. We are excited to bring our network solutions to school campuses, and continue connecting your students to safe, reliable Internet.
