In our first few posts about US Ignite, a nonprofit organization working to foster the build out of high-speed GB broadband and to activate a developer community to create transformative applications to leverage it, we talked about some of the exciting new applications being developed by US Ignite partners to transform how Americans receive healthcare, access education, keep our communities safe, become more energy efficient, train employees, and manufacture goods.
The Juniper Federal team recently had the opportunity to attend the AFCEA TechNet Augusta Conference.

Unfortunately, according to recent research, only 40 percent of schools meet the bandwidth recommendations of what the State
In our first few posts about US Ignite, a nonprofit organization working to foster the build out of high-speed GB broadband and to activate a developer community that will create transformative applications that can leverage that high-speed broadband, we talked about some of the exciting new applications that are being developed by US Ignite partners. As we mentioned, US Ignite’s goal is to transform how Americans receive healthcare, access education,
