In our current cloud-based environment this is essential for student learning.”Conterra’s SVP Van Snowdon added, “We are excited about the capabilities this custom private network will deliver to the WCC USD, as we continue to offer California school districts scalable network solutions to support the limitless surge of bandwidth and reliability requirements in the education sector.”
