Motorola Solutions was recently selected as a qualified MiCTA vendor to provide innovative Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS)-based private broadband solutions to MiCTA members across the United States. MiCTA helps thousands of non-profit organizations from higher education, K-12, healthcare, library, government and charitable sectors procure the best technology and most favorable pricing through a highly competitive request for proposals (RFP) process.
This newly formed partnership will make it more convenient and affordable for MiCTA’s members to purchase Motorola Solutions’ Nitro™ private LTE solution. Nitro is especially valuable to members in the education sector so they can securely and reliably connect remote students directly to their schools’ networks to support access to online classes, streaming video and other data-rich programming.
Nitro is a compelling option for schools because it offers better coverage, faster speeds and greater network security when compared to public broadband. It does not require complex infrastructure and can be quickly and easily deployed in academic settings and extended into the community with the capacity and range to provide every student with reliable access to online learning. Schools maintain control over who accesses the network and the content that students consume via their existing firewalls and content-filtering tools, and full end-to-end encryption keeps sensitive data safe and secure.
MiCTA conducted in-depth research and extensive product testing prior to adding Nitro to its approved list of vendors to determine that it would best meet its members’ needs for secure, flexible and turnkey private LTE. Members can purchase technology through MiCTA with the knowledge that it is fairly priced, discounted based on organizational volume and fully evaluated by members with technical and industry expertise.
