Students Use School District’s Private Cellular Network for Better Distance Learning Experience

March 12, 2021

Murray City School District cost-effectively provides and controls CBRS-driven Private LTE network for hundreds of households

Challenge — In 2020, the Murray City School District in Utah was facing a common but critical pandemic-related challenge: With children and parents stuck at home for remote work and distance learning, high-bandwidth technologies such as teleconferencing were becoming unreliable. Consistent, high-performance Internet access had become a key need.

Solution — As part of an ongoing Private Cellular Network project, the district began sending Cradlepoint’s Private LTE routers home with families needing better connection performance than most wired broadband could offer. With Cradlepoint NetCloud Service, the IT team controls security and configurations from afar.

Benefits — By leveraging Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) spectrum through enterprise-grade wireless edge routers, the IT team can control its own cost-effective cellular network and students at home can keep their online studies separate from all other streaming.
