An affordable approach to enhanced student learning

Whether you work in K-12 or higher education, the performance of your network and wireless infrastructure is more important than ever before. From kindergarten to grad school, students and teachers alike are using technology to enhance the learning experience. How can you ensure they have seamless access to the resources and information they need to succeed?

Network infrastructure that guarantees an A+ performance

You have more devices to support and more data flowing at higher speeds, but you likely don’t have an unlimited budget to play with. Here’s the good news. There’s a way to invest in the technology you need to meet the increasing demands of your network infrastructure, at a price that works for your budget.

CXtec has nearly 40 years of experience partnering with educational organizations to provide networking, voice and cabling solutions at the quality and the price you deserve. It’s how we help you achieve Technology @ Your Pace®.

The network hardware buying process, made simple – E-Rate, PEPPM, TIPS/TAPS and USETPA

We know you have a million things to do throughout the day, and the list just keeps getting longer. Getting the equipment you need to keep your network up and running shouldn’t be a hassle. Partnering with us lets you get the solutions you need, without having to jump through hoops to accomplish your goals.

CXtec is an approved and experienced E-Rate vendor, which enables you to take advantage of federal government discounts on telecommunications products and services. We’re also an approved vendor for the PEPPM purchasing program, The Interlocal Purchasing System (TIPS/TAPS), and the US Educational Technology Purchasing Alliance (USETPA), eliminating the need for a bidding process and reducing the overall time, effort, and cost of purchasing technology. Our dedicated education team can help you through the buying process and provide the support you need to make your job easier.

Network hardware for education – Quality and reliability that fits in your budget

You don’t have to spend a fortune to get the quality and reliability your network demands. Our brand of equal2new® certified networking and voice equipment was developed in 1995 – way back when chalkboards were more commonplace than tablets.

We offer the brands you trust – Cisco, HP, ShoreTel, Mitel, and more. While we’ve evolved our product offerings over time, the quality has remained constant. Our equal2new products go through a rigorous certification process, come standard with a true lifetime warranty, and are up to 90% off manufacturer list price.

High-quality cables & data center solutions that ace any performance test

We know your network must run flawlessly to meet the needs and expectations of your students, teachers, and faculty. Your network cabling and data center infrastructure are the building blocks that make this happen, and any cable just won’t do.

Our CABLExpress® brand cabling and data center solutions ensure your network performs at its highest levels, minimizing downtime and any interruption of the learning process. It goes beyond just cables – our comprehensive, high-density fiber optic Skinny-Trunk® Solution helps you increase efficiency and maximize the use of rack space in your closets or data center.

IT Asset Disposition - We Buy Your Network Hardware & Voice Equipment

We’ll buy back your old equipment so you can maximize your technology investments when you’re upgrading your infrastructure. You can get money for your network hardware like switches, routers, phones, and access points. We can pay in cash, credit on account, or even trade – just like the kids at the lunch table (with maybe a little more paperwork). Our asset recovery program is just another way we provide Technology @ Your Pace®, and another way you can spend your budget on the things that help your students excel.

Low-Cost Next-Business-Day Hardware Replacement for Education

CXtec also offers third-party maintenance (TPM) with RapidCare®, our next-business-day advance hardware replacement program. It ensures that if you have any problems with your equipment, you’ll receive the replacement you need to keep your network up. Plus, it costs about 50% less than OEM maintenance programs, with free shipping included on both inbound and outbound products. Our experts can also help you determine if a hybrid maintenance solution of OEM support, TPM, and spares is right for your organization, so you’re getting the support you need, when you need it.
