PARADISE UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT

Modern Voice and Network Solutions Help a School System Stay Connected

The Paradise Unified School District worked with TPx to install voice and SD-WAN solutions to support schools in the area. Failover and redundancy capabilities that TPx brought to bear helped connect schools, students and teachers following a natural disaster.

The Challenge

On the morning of November 8, 2018, Paradise Unified School District employees saw a large plume of smoke off in the distance. Their internet went down almost immediately. Within an hour or two of the fire starting, buildings within Paradise were on fire. The fire spread quickly leaving little in its wake. Over 95% of all the buildings in Paradise were destroyed. After the fire was over, Paradise Unified School District needed to rebuild.

The Opportunity

The school district took advantage of TPx’s SD-WAN solution with a 4G backup that connected to their existing internet bandwidth along with phone and voice services.

Results + Benefits

Quickly after working with TPx all of their schools moved back to the Paradise area. Their IT was back up and running and in a single location, making it easy to manage.

Business Internet + SD-WAN: The Network of the Future

In a cloud-based world, network connectivity is essential for your business operations. Segmenting, compressing, transmitting, and reassembling data in huge amounts is the backbone of our ever-growing internet-enabled economy. So, how is your business keeping up with the evolution of internet connectivity?

Three Ways SD-WAN Simplifies Network Operations

The modern network needs to handle enormous workloads without compromising the end user’s experience. With users accessing and using resources from all over the world, it can be hard to ensure data flows efficiently, especially if you have limited time, physical resources, and staff to monitor network operations. This is where SD-WAN comes in.
