United Wireless

Case Study: United Wireless

Executive Summary

United Wireless, located in Dodge City, Kansas, was approached by a local school district with a need of continuing education aboard their school bus fleet. United Wireless provided the 4G LTE service, while BEC and their MX-1000 provided the technology to not only make the extended classroom possible, but with enhanced safety and efficiency tools all in one product.

The Customer

United Wireless’s parent company was shaped 1951 when Southwestern Bell decided it was not in their interest to extend coverage to those living in the rural areas outside of Dodge City, Kansas. Fast forward to 2016, United Wireless has more towers and better coverage than any other provider in Southwestern Kansas. Their foundation was founded on the ambition to bring the latest and greatest technology to its rural Kansas customers and they continue to work towards that goal today.

Challenges

Because of this reputation, United Wireless was approached by a local school district, with the hopes of continuing the digital classroom while transporting the students to and from the physical one. United Wireless has the 4G LTE to provide to the school district, but needed a partner to supply the connection solution to make this hope a reality. BEC Technologies was the perfect solution to providing 4G LTE wireless gateways to offer solutions that provide secure, robust and reliable network connectivity for the school district’s fleet of 56 school busses.
