Technology As A Utility

Northern Buckeye Education Council is the largest provider of E-Rate-eligible managed internal broadband services in the State of Ohio

Northern Buckeye's utility model, known as "Technology as a Utility," offers a beneficial solution for schools. As educational institutions, schools require access to computing and network capabilities to support their teaching and administrative needs. However, not all schools have the resources, expertise, or budget to invest in and maintain their own infrastructure.

By adopting Utility as a Service, schools can leverage Northern Buckeye's infrastructure technology solutions. This approach eliminates the need for schools to invest in expensive hardware or bear the burden of ongoing maintenance and management. Instead, they can access the required computing resources and network capabilities as a service, similar to how one receives utilities like electricity or water.

This model enables K-12 institutions to focus on their core mission of education, free from the complexities of infrastructure management. Moreover, it ensures schools have access to up-to-date technology and resources without the hassle of frequent hardware upgrades or maintenance. This advantage is particularly significant in the ever-evolving landscape of educational technology.
