Westinghouse Communications Wires Southeast Alabama Schools
Westinghouse Communications has been selected as the primary contractor to establish and maintain the Southeast Alabama Network, an educational and distance learning network for more than 100 schools, 50,000 students and 3,000 teachers in seven Alabama counties. The network will provide universal access to telecommunications services, including the Internet.
All teachers in the rural region with a computer and modem will be able to access the network by dialing a local number. For those without a computer and modem, access will be made available at many public locations, including 23 regional public libraries. In addition, a continuous and extensive network training program will be offered to educators and citizens in the participating counties.
According to Dr. Randolph Gunter of the Southeast Alabama Regional Planning and Development Commission, "The Southeast Alabama Network is a great example of how economic developers and educators can combine their efforts to improve a region's workforce." Dr. Gunter went on to say that Westinghouse Communications was selected because of its expertise in installing and managing full-service telecommunications networks and its excellent reputation for quality service and quick response time.
