Cutting Edge Solutions for Education.
Today’s modern, connected classrooms leverage advanced applications and technologies that require high-performing and reliable network solutions. School districts and universities need affordable and sustainable solutions to meet the performance and privacy needs of students, teachers and administrators. MCE has a long-standing relationship with school districts and universities throughout the State of Wisconsin. Our specialized knowledge stems from decades spent studying, designing, and implementing fiber optic networks in this industry.
The E-rate Program for Schools and Libraries.
The USAC E-rate program makes telecommunications and information services more affordable for schools and libraries. With funding from the Universal Service Fund, E-rate provides discounts for telecommunications, Internet access and internal connections to eligible schools and libraries. This program provides Category 1 funds that can be used to subsidize leased circuit, dark fiber, or self-provisioned connectivity costs.
The Competitive Bidding Process.
MCE has the experience and expertise needed for preparing the required RFP documents for leased circuit, dark fiber, or self-provisioned connectivity. Our detailed documents follow all E-rate bidding guidelines and are customized and tailored to our customer’s unique needs. We work in conjunction with specialized E-rate consultants to ensure all program requirements are met in an efficient and timely manner.
Above and Beyond.
Creating and submitting RFP documents is just part of the process. We also analyze and generate breakdown matrices for proposals and provide detailed responses to all Private Internet Access (PIA) information requests. These added-value services ensure our customers get the network connectivity and E-rate funding they need, and deserve.

“We use MC&E for all of our complex design, engineering, and project management tasks. As a large school district with 26 sites and 80+ miles of dark fiber under our control, network maintenance, and change management can be a daunting task. MCE handles these tasks with ease. From repairing damage inflicted by a rampant trackhoe operator, to navigating the complex eRate process during a recent network expansion, MCE takes it all in stride. In short when it comes to telecommunications/network design and project management, no task is too big or too small for MCE.”
