Intel, AWS and Megh Computing collaborate to close the digital divide in an underserved community.
June 11, 2021 /3BL Media/ - As part of Intel’s $50 million Pandemic Response Technology Initiative to combat COVID-19, Intel, AWS and Megh Computing today announced a collaboration to deploy a Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) private network solution that will cover a three-quarter-mile area and enable remote learning with broadband access as an essential service for an underserved community in Sacramento, California.
Education experienced a leap in digital transformation over this past year. The glaring inequities in broadband access became even more apparent as many students transitioned to remote learning. We’re committed to helping with the subsequent challenges (like closing the homework gap), and one of the ways we’re doing this is through our breakthrough innovations in mobile computing.

Astronaut and physicist Sally Ride famously said: “If you can see it, you can be it.” This now common phrase has special truth in education. Wherever students are learning, seeing people like them represented – especially in ever-growing fields like STEM – helps build their confidence that they too can do anything.
The LA Kings (NHL), and their long-standing exclusive financial services sponsor, Wells Fargo are joining forces to help students in need across Los Angeles with the launch of “Team Up For Tech” - a new initiative designed to help address the educational needs of underserved youth, many of whom are learning remotely this year. “Team Up for Tech,” will support students in underserved local communities and help combat the technological barriers of distance learning with the donation of mobile Wi-Fi hotspots, headphones and Chromebooks.

If 2020 has taught us anything, it’s that the old adage is true: necessity truly is the mother of invention. It’s also shown us that when we work together, not only can we adapt, but we can overcome challenges and even achieve things we previously hadn’t thought were possible.
Our partners have been the very embodiment of those ideas over the course of this year, helping in ways large and small all around the world. Cisco, too, has leaned into the challenges that 2020 has thrown our way, and together we’ve worked to create the solutions our communities need most.
Since the pandemic hit and millions of us retreated to our homes, the situation has cast a bright spotlight on the problem of ubiquitous broadband. Access to the Internet is now more essential than owning a car for many of us, yet an estimated 40 million in the U.S. currently lack high-speed Internet. Large swaths of rural America – not connected. Underserved urban populations – not connected.
