The Walker School Turns To Comcast Business Class Ethernet To Power Students' Digital Learning

Stocks in this article: CMCSA CMCSK

"We experienced periodic downtime with our previous vendor, and it was important for us to have a more stable connection, especially with more and more devices accessing the Internet," said Kerry Bossak, director of technology for The Walker School.  "While the increased bandwidth and guaranteed network uptime were important factors in switching to Comcast Business Class, the cost advantage is a big deal for us because it means we have the bandwidth to support our technology in education initiatives while saving money to invest in other areas of education."

The Walker School recognizes the importance of embracing and integrating technology tools, applications and devices into all aspects of student life, therefore bandwidth capacity will always be an important issue for the IT department. Another reason for moving to Comcast Business Class Ethernet was the ability for The Walker School to increase bandwidth whenever needed, often by simply making a phone call to Comcast, so that students, teachers and staff always have access to the educational tools and resources they need to focus on running the school and learning.

"As more schools move to online learning resources and integrating connected devices into the curriculum through programs such as BYOD, having fast and reliable Internet connectivity is essentially the blackboard and chalk equivalent of 21 st century classrooms," said Bob Deckard, regional vice president, Comcast Business Services, Atlanta. "Because our Ethernet services are delivered across our modern fiber-based network, we are able to provide reliable, high-performance connectivity to our customers that can easily scale up as their bandwidth demands change."

About The Walker SchoolThe Walker School is the college-preparatory independent school for families seeking an engaging educational experience within an intimately scaled, caring and diverse community where opportunities abound and meaningful relationships inspire transformative learning.
