TROY, Mich. – For the 2010 school year Troy based Internet
Service Provider Waveform Technology is completing new fiber optic
construction to provide gigabit Internet access to Marian High School
in Bloomfield Hills, along with Brother Rice High school and St. Regis
School. Gigabit Internet access is more than 160 times faster than
Marian High School’s old Internet connection and 650 times faster than
a T1, giving Marian High School faster Internet access than any other
private school in Michigan.
The new Internet access is provisioned over privately owned fiber built by Waveform
Technology. “This is as a pilot project for a larger community oriented
construction schedule,” said Waveform Technology representative, Noel Montales.“Private schools don’t have access to the same purchasing power as public school
districts. We want to see how we can help these schools overcome this and have
access to the bandwidth they need in a cost-effective manner. Fifteen years ago we
helped break the price barrier on T1 circuits, making Waveform Technology the first
to provide always-on dedicated Internet access to private schools in Metro Detroit.
We hope to do that again for extremely fast Internet access.”
Marian High School will use the faster Internet access to move to hosted solutions
for both school management systems and educational resources. “This will allow us
to access more state-of-the-art technology for schools,” said Mark Hallman, of
Marian’s Technology department, “letting us explore video, simulations, and virtual
educational technology opportunities.” Hallman also said he used to tell teachers
to limit their Internet use in the class room for fear of bogging down the old
connection, but now the access to additional bandwidth will allow more concurrent
use of interactive resources.
This construction project is just one of several ongoing expansions to Waveform
Technology’s fiber optic network.
