Multi-Year Agreement for Fiber-Optic Services Will Connect All District Sites

ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, IL -- (Marketwired) -- 07/17/14 -- High School District 214 recently signed an agreement with Unite Private Networks (UPN) to provide fiber-optic services for the District. The network will connect all seven buildings in the District.

"The network will empower us to even more effectively educate our students," said District 214's Director of Technology Services, Keith Bockwoldt. "It will allow us to implement new and consistently relevant learning applications as they are developed, providing our students first-hand knowledge of today's cutting-edge technology."

UPN's installation of the fiber-optic network has already begun and is expected to be completed by July 2015, with schools converting to the new system as they are built. When finished, the network will connect every school in the District and will support 12,000 students using District-issued mobile computing devices in the classroom. Additionally, the new network can expand as the District's needs change.
