Alef and Frontera Collaborate and Expand Private Mobile Networks Platform Reach in Schools

By Greg Tavarez

Educational institutions, just like many other institutions, need secure communication infrastructures to support various applications, ranging from administrative tasks to classroom connectivity. That is why educational institutions adopt private networks based on the Citizens Broadband Radio Service, or CBRS, technology.

By deploying CBRS-based networks, educational organizations can establish reliable and high-performance communication channels tailored to their specific needs. The advantages of such networks extend beyond conventional Wi-Fi solutions, providing institutions with more control over their connectivity, improved security and enhanced capacity to accommodate the growing demand for digital learning tools. As a result, these institutions are experiencing a tangible return on their investment, with the payoff occurring within a relatively short timeframe of two to three years.

Alef, a mobile connectivity SaaS platform company, has a solution that streamlines the costly and complex deployment of private mobile networks and allows school districts to extend and manage private 4G and 5G wireless networks through their existing network management platform.

Because of its Private Mobile Networks Platform, Alef is considered a reliable partner for educational institutions in private mobile networks. To further cement that reliability status, Alef recently teamed up with Frontera Consulting Group, a connectivity provider and consultancy firm specializing in community data connectivity engineering and deployment solutions, to provide equal access to quality education, regardless of a student's economic background, particularly pertinent when digital access has become a fundamental requirement for learning.

"At Alef, we believe that education is the cornerstone of a brighter future, and our commitment to making private mobile networks accessible for young students and their families reflects this vision,” said Mike Mulica, CEO of Alef. “Our solution prioritizes simplicity, speed, and affordability in deployment."

Alef is expanding its reach by partnering with System Integrators and MSPs. This collaboration allows the company to provide crucial services to schools and other educational institutions, addressing digital equity issues and helping create future-ready classrooms.

To be more specific, Alef and Frontera implemented Alef's Private Mobile Networks Platform to provide affordable, high-speed wireless internet access for families residing near Brooks-Quinn-Jones Elementary School within the Nacogdoches, Texas, Independent School District community.

“Deploying private mobile networks in K-12 schools has never been smoother thanks to Alef's extensive set of APIs,” said David Armstrong, president of Frontera. “Their technology has not only simplified the process but has also opened doors to new educational possibilities. Together, we're empowering schools to provide a cutting-edge learning experience for students."
