MCLEAN, VA.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Kajeet®, a leading provider of wireless connectivity, software and hardware solutions that deliver secure, reliable and managed IoT solutions to over 3,000 businesses, schools and districts, libraries, and state and local governments, today announced a new contract with Texas Department of Information Resources (DIR). With this contract, Kajeet offers CIPA-compliant 4G LTE and 5G managed broadband via all major carrier networks.

“This contract will help schools and government agencies across Texas with cost-effective access to secure, policy-managed, multi-carrier mobile broadband services as they work to close the digital divide in their communities,” said Michael Flood, senior vice president and general manager of public sector at Kajeet. “Recent enhancements to Sentinel, including real-time Insights and Device Management, further differentiate Kajeet from generic carrier services.”

According to the Office of Broadband Development, more than seven million Texans in three million households across the state don’t have high-speed internet access. Kajeet solutions offered through the DIR contract include WiFi hotspots, school bus WiFi, LTE-embedded laptops, and home wireless routers – with network connectivity that is intelligently and securely managed across all major carrier networks in a single unified platform.
