Dual-SIM Router plus Two Modems Means More Connected Students, Greater Uptime
MCLEAN, Virginia—January 22, 2018—Kajeet®, the industry leader for safe, mobile student Internet connectivity, today announces its new Kajeet SmartBus™ with Dual Connect™ configuration, which supports two national 4G LTE cellular networks at one time. Kajeet currently partners with all four major U.S. 4G LTE wireless networks, providing school districts the option to choose up to two of those carriers for their school bus managed Wi-Fi solution.
Two SIM cards combined with two modems mounted together creates the Kajeet SmartBus with Dual Connect configuration. If one network loses signal en route, the router will remain connected to the stronger network and continue providing Kajeet Education Broadband™ access to bus riders. With the additional carriers, school districts choose the carrier – or carriers – that provide the strongest coverage in their area with the complete Education Broadband connectivity package.
“Students need consistent and uninterrupted Internet access in order to get full benefit from digital tools and resources while they ride the school bus to or from school or a school activity or event,” said CEO and Founder of Kajeet, Daniel Neal. “The Kajeet SmartBus with Dual Connect is the next step toward connecting students as they travel on district-provided vehicles, whether for a short ride or over long distances, increasing focus on schoolwork instead of disrupting the bus driver. This leads to a safer and more productive ride for all.”
The innovative cloud portal, Kajeet Sentinel®, makes it easy for school districts to manage data usage and keep students safe with CIPA-compliant, educational filters. Sentinel analyzes and categorizes millions of new URLs every day, and provides customized reports and analytics to help educators manage student Internet and data usage. Sentinel is part of every Kajeet Education Broadband complete connectivity solution.
Kajeet is the leading provider for Wi-Fi and Education Broadband on school buses in the United States where over 110 districts across 34 states have deployed the Kajeet SmartBus solution, extending the classroom to the school bus. As Internet uptime increases, more students can connect to the tools they need to succeed.
When we started Kajeet in 2003, we wanted kids to be agile with technology, to be empowered and safe, and we wanted to help them respond with confidence to what's happening in their world. Not incidentally, we want parents, educators and guardians to be involved too. Being part of the mobile world is not just fun, it’s a shared responsibility.
