NEC’s NETWORK CONNECT – a Microsoft-certified carrier solution – delivered a modern approach to hybrid accessibility and academic achievement to Wichita Public Schools IRVING, TX - February 8, 2023 - NEC Corporation of America (NEC), a leading provider and integrator of advanced IT, communications and networking solutions, today announced the release of a joint case study with Microsoft, highlighting the successful implementation of NEC NETWORK CONNECT in support of Wichita Public Schools, Kansas’ largest school district. At the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, Wichita Public Schools – which is part of Wichita Unified School District (USD) 259 – faced the challenge of switching nearly 50,000 students and 7,000+ teachers and staff across more than 90 schools and special program sites to remote learning. The school district required an agile communications platform that could be integrated with its existing UC infrastructure while having the flexibility of supporting a reliable hybrid work environment. NEC and Microsoft worked together to execute the successful implementation of  NEC NETWORK CONNECT for Microsoft Teams. This intelligent call routing platform provided the public switched telephone network connectivity needed to effectively operate MS Teams, enabling virtual learning, remote working, greater accessibility and online classroom experiences and support assistance. Implemented in just four weeks, the solution not only allowed Wichita Public Schools to adapt to the challenges of the pandemic, but also prepared the school district for future disruptions such as weather emergencies and other fast-changing circumstances.
