Digital learning, extensively driven by the use of technology and information, is the new
way to provide high-quality education, advanced courses and new learning opportunities
to students in remote locations. The wider the geographical distribution of schools, the
bigger the challenge it is to find sufficient broadband infrastructure to service all the
facilities, their teachers and their students.East Allen County School Corporation, an Allen County area public school district, is
the largest school district in Indiana. It operates seven secondary schools and eleven
elementary schools and provides education to more than 10,000 students. East Noble
School Corporation is the largest of the four school corporations and covers the eastern
third of Noble County.

Partially served by legacy communications equipment delivering low-bandwidth TDM
services, both East Allen and East Noble school districts rely on video-rich distance
learning and need the appropriate transmission media to ensure high-quality and reliable
connectivity. Video conferencing, cloud computing and interactive television are very
bandwidth-heavy applications and put a huge strain on any data transmission network,
causing interruptions and depleted bandwidth. To improve the level of service while
staying within their budgets, the school districts needed an economical solution to
increase the capacities and technology of their networks bringing together geographically
disperse school facilities, teachers and students. In addition to providing sufficient network
capacity, the solution also had to fulfill the criteria for the Universal Service Administrative
Company’s (USAC) Schools and Libraries Program, commonly known as E-Rate, which
provides partial federal funding for telecommunication services at eligible institutions.
