Charter School Associates Selects GTT for Managed SD-WAN

MCLEAN, Va.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–GTT
Communications, Inc.
(NYSE: GTT), the leading global cloud
networking provider to multinational clients, announced today that it is
providing managed SD-WAN service to connect 16 schools and a central
data center administrated by Charter
School Associates, Inc
(CSA) in Florida.

GTT SD-WAN provides CSA with cost-effective connectivity to transport
vital information supporting school administration and course
curriculums. The service enhances network performance, improves access
to cloud applications and reduces the amount of IT resources CSA
requires to operate its wide area network.

“We support our schools in making education their priority. GTT’s
managed SD-WAN reduces the strain on scarce IT resources and improves
performance for applications that are mission-critical in delivering
outstanding learning environments,” commented Joaquin Infante, director
of information technology at CSA. “GTT stood out among those we
evaluated for this network deployment for its responsiveness, ability to
match our specific requirements, managed service experience and
industry-leading internet network.”

GTT connects CSA’s 16 school locations to its central data center with
near real-time failover capability. Each location is served with dual,
redundant access that includes one dedicated internet circuit and one
broadband connection. SD-WAN enables CSA to use both lines
simultaneously, increasing available bandwidth. The service allows CSA
to prioritize traffic by application and route over the best available
connection at any given time.

“GTT is proud to support educational organizations such as Charter
School Associates with connectivity for cloud applications,” stated Rick
Calder, GTT president and CEO. “Deploying software-defined networking
technologies can result in significant performance benefits to enhance
educational experiences and outcomes. GTT’s fully managed service allows
the school administration staff to focus on their important mission of
bringing the best educational opportunities possible to students of the
charter schools.”
