Wylie Independent School District serves the City of Wylie as well as families in the surrounding communities with more than 13,000 students. Wylie School District acquired a 10G network based on OS6900 core, allowing the students and teachers to access a better learning experience.


  • Need for faster connectivity as demanded by students and staff. Having a 10G network was mandatory
  • Refresh the existing outdated network
  • Limited budget




  • OmniSwitch 6900 virtual chassis provides simplified management, high resiliency and in-service software upgrades
  • Low energy consumption and environmental protection, allowing operational cost savings over the life of the product
  • Allowing students and personnel easier access to network resources. Allows much more robust wireless capabilities for the existing BYOD program

"Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise’s solution provides us with an optimal up-to-date network which will help deliver on the technology initiatives that we have in use as well as planned in the future. This equipment should keep us on the cutting edge for several years."

— Chris Lamb, Chief Information Officer
