#conterra #broadband Services, a national provider of optical fiber-based Ethernet solutions, has received a multi-year contract to deploy a direct point-to-point optical fiber network to provide #internet access and data, video and Voice over IP (VoIP) transport services for the #el paso Independent School District (“EPISD”). The 100% fiber network will connect all 101 of the district’s schools and administrative facilities with the EPISD Data Center. The School District currently serves approximately 60,000 students and 9,000 teachers/administrators.
Conterra’s dedicated high-speed fiber network services will be partially funded through the federal Universal Service E-Rate program. The wide area network will provide a full 1 Gigabit of bandwidth connectivity to each EPISD facility and will have an aggregate bandwidth capacity of over 100 Gigabits per second.
