Information Transport Solutions, Inc., a Uniti Company, is a full-service provider of technology solutions located in Montgomery. They pride themselves in caring for the community. Their passion for community service has led them to get involved with various charities, scholarship funds, and community organizations for over two decades. ITS with its parent company’s philanthropic program, Uniti in the Community, seized the opportunity to uplift and support the youth of Montgomery by providing three 10 gigabit-capable core switches to Valiant Cross. The network switches will help power not only the school’s internal network but also the Cisco Network Academy. The network enabled by these switches will also expose the students and staff to learning and development resources like video and web conferencing for virtual classrooms, true technical certification training, research program and participation, and foreign language learning and translation. Valiant Cross has never had such opportunities available. The world will be at these students’ fingertips.
