CBRS/LTE Project

What is Private LTE/5G
Private LTE is a local cellular network that includes cell sites and core network servers dedicated to supporting connectivity of a specific organization’s requirements independent of the cellular networks of service providers.

It enables organizations to customize their networks for mission-critical applications, optimize the network for low latency and support specific SLA – all without interference from the often-congested public wireless spectrum.

 

Our Vision of the CBRS/LTE Project -Vision
UETN will work with you, our K12, technical college, telehealth and library stakeholders to utilize CBRS and other Private LTE/5G radio technologies to help provide “access” for students and educators. We will also seek to identify and prove appropriate and highly meaningful use cases for private 5G and LTE services for the current sites in support of the education, and library communities.

 

Why Private LTE
Education is increasingly occurring on-line, anywhere and at any time. Whether it’s students learning at home or on the go, collaborating over video, or accessing cloud-hosted educational tools, education is now 24/7. Using private LTE can help ensure equitable internet access for all students. Using Private LTE across a district is a cost-effective way to connect students, teachers and administrators to each other and the internet. Private LTE extends internet access across a wide area without incurring high data usage or infrastructure investment costs.
