When 1:1 programs provide netbooks and laptops to students without embedded modems, those students may be prevented from "Learning on the Go". In many cases, buying devices with an embedded 3G/4G wireless modem is much more expensive. With a simple USB modem for 3G/4G access, connectivity and learning can be enabled virtually anytime and anywhere at a very low cost!

Within every school district there are still students who lack access to broadband internet access in the home. As our schools expand anytime, anywhere access to learning, bridging this digital divide is crucial to maintain equity. By providing a Sierra U250 AirCard with Sentinel™ managed access, a school can provide the connectivity a student needs without the worry that it will be abused. Managed access can be restricted to a single program (such as distance learning), a selection of websites (a white list), by categories of content or any combination thereof. By restricting the use of high-bandwidth protocols to specific academic use, cost can be controlled and limited to a specific budget, grant program or other funding source. With complete auditing of activity, usage can be examined and aligned to ensure compliance with a funding source's intent.
A Sierra U250 can cost up to 80% less than a Novatel MiFi® 2200 and still supports all of the benefits of the Sentinel™ platform. This cost-effective solution allows schools to provide targeted internet access for compatible netbooks and laptops at a fraction of the cost of a typical carrier solution or embedded modem. With the Sentinel™ business model, your mobile broadband data usage is shared across all Kajeet® enabled data devices and you only pay for what is actually used, per your own rules and limits. Now that is controlled cost and flexibility!
These modems can be installed in a wide variety of laptops or netbooks. Since this is internal hardware, this option ensures that your students won't misplace their modem! Your existing laptops or netbooks may already have Sprint® compatible modems inside!
