WiFiRanger Teton C19 is a purpose-built connectivity solution for school students during the COVID-19 pandemic. School districts are actively pursuing programs to park internet-enabled school buses in neighborhoods so that students may come and download / upload assignments and complete homework. The WiFiRanger Teton C19 is a timely response to this connectivity need. The use-case is installing the Teton C19 on Thomas Built and Blue Bird buses which already have an indoor Go2 or Core router installed. The two routers are interconnected via ethernet WAN. The indoor router can connect to LTE while the outdoor Teton C19 can connect to distant public WiFi, providing increased bandwidth to students. The Teton C19 has a maximum wireless range of 0.5mi (maximum range is only achievable in ideal conditions when connecting with clear line of sight and a powerful access point). Load Balancing can be enabled to combine all active LTE and WiFi backhaul connections of both the Go2 / Core and Teton C19, increasing internet capacity and reliability.
The firmware has been pre-configured to meet the needs of typical school implementations. A captive portal requires students to obtain a password from school staff or a bulletin available in the bus, preventing non-students from using the internet bandwidth. Bandwidth restrictions limit each student to 3x3Mbps internet speeds, ensuring that all students get a fair share of usable internet. This default restriction meets typical student needs, but can be customized if desired.
Bulk Purchasing Options
The Teton C19 is available individually up to 191 units or bulk for 192 units or more. Anything 192 units or more will be considered a bulk order with discounted pricing. Such orders will be fulfilled on a pallet rather than in separate standard shipping boxes. For smaller implementations and school districts, shipments will be made in the 8 pack boxes and shipped with UPS. Purchasing less than 191 units can be paid using a credit card. Purchasing a 192 pallet or more requires Direct WIRE transfers or mailed checks. For such large orders, submit the order and then you will be contacted with instructions on completing payment. Orders will not ship until payment is confirmed.
Variable Lead Times
The Teton C19 will be produced and shipped as quickly as possible. Lead times will vary depending on unit quantities, SIM cards, and shipping method. Please contact us to discuss lead times: email@example.com
