BEC is assisting school districts in reimagining the classroom environment and embracing innovative approaches to overcome the challenges students encounter. Our solution for school bus Wi-Fi transforms travel time into valuable learning opportunities by equipping the school bus fleet with advanced mobile cellular technology and strong Wi-Fi capabilities, ensuring students have instant, reliable, and secure internet access. Equipped school buses can support various applications, including student Wi-Fi access, location tracking, and real-time access to video surveillance and onboard DVRs. School buses equipped with BEC are revolutionizing the educational journey.

With the recent announcement from the FCC declaring Wi-Fi on School Buses as E-Rate Fundable, we’ve increased our initiatives to assist more school districts in providing school bus Wi-Fi for their students. We’re extending our solution at an unparalleled price of $499, encompassing the LTE/Wi-Fi Router and a one-year subscription to BECentral® CloudEdge, BEC’s cloud-based management service.
