Fiber Optic or Cable Equipment and Operating System Software for Fiber Optic or Cable Equipment Networks
Oakland Network for Education (ONE)
In 2001, Oakland Schools proudly unveiled the Oakland Network for Education (ONE) that connected all 28 local districts with fiber optic cable for voice, video and data information exchange. ONE is a district-wide 311 mile fiber optic network that brings significantly enhanced educational opportunities to students and educators in Oakland Schools' constituent districts through its economy of scale and services. ONE provides services through advanced voice, video and data network infrastructure in order to build a stronger learning community within the Oakland Schools boundaries; e.g., lower-cost local, zone, and long-distance telephone access through collaborative bids; high-speed Internet access to meet the growing needs of Oakland ISD educators, and connectivity to the community through a Web presence. ONE provides opportunities for all students to access the technological and academic skills necessary for the 21st century, college courses for high school students at their local high schools, field experts to work with students, virtual field trips to leading cultural institutions, and video on demand for instruction.

Using ONE, Oakland Schools delivers educational programming via "on-demand" programming to individual classrooms and to teachers who can select from thousands of educational programs as well as satellite downlinks and teleconferences.
