TheJnet is the only Internet service
provider in the nation that offers proxy-free, server-based
filtering in combination with customized levels of access.
Our unique technology allows us to offer high-speed, high-security
Internet access that is flexible enough to meet diverse
needs. TheJnet's T1 for Schools service includes the following
- High-security Internet filtering
- 4 filtering profiles (for various levels of access within
- 5 e-mail accounts
- Full-featured browser for surfing the Web
- Web mail (check e-mail from any PC)
- High-speed, high-capacity, dedicated T1 connection
- Talk and surf the Web simultaneously, on a single phone
- Instant access-never a busy signal
- 24/7 technical support
- Kids, speed, each classroom own profile
With a dedicated T1 connection from TheJnet, you'll have
a constant Internet connection, allowing full, instant access
to the resources of the Internet and your own various networks
and resources, without waiting while dialing up or worrying
about whether a connection will be available when it's critical
to have one. Teachers can plan lessons that rely on the Internet,
knowing they won't have to postpone any studies due to the
Internet not being on. And the speed of a T1 connection allows
a full classroom of students to surf the Internet simultaneously.
You'll be able to rapidly up- or download very large amounts
of data and huge files (such as graphic, sound, or video files)
with a transmission speed of 1.5 Mbps guaranteed. And if a
large number of school personnel need access to the Internet,
a dedicated T1 connection can help you realize a lower cost
per person and a lower cost per hour.
With conventional proxy-based
filtering, a proxy is put into each computer's browser
specifying the IP address of a certain computer through
which all the school's computers must access the Internet.
To bypass this filtering, any student or staff member
on any computer can simply go into the browser's setup
and change the IP address for the proxy. And because
the software with the list of prohibited sites is installed
on the school's computer, it is up to school personnel
to keep the filtering up to date by downloading frequent
updates. This is a formidable problem when about 1000
new offensive sites are added to the Internet daily.
With TheJnet, all filtering
is done on our own server. There is no software for
the school to install on its computers and no vulnerable
proxies in its browsers. And TheJnet updates its filters
daily, so you don't have to worry about new sites slipping
past your filter. This method is not only safer, but
also more convenient. You can sign up and be online
in a few minutes, because there is no filtering software
for you to install, download, or update.
TheJnet provides a choice of
two filtering methods. The most secure method uses a
white list, or list of permitted sites. This is especially
useful in schools, where the need for security is so
high. With a white list, for example, a computer could
be set up to access only selected encyclopedia sites.
The other filtering method
allows access to any site that isn't blocked. TheJnet
uses a variety of resources to create a comprehensive
list of sites to block, including sophisticated computer
searches and manual site inspections. TheJnet's filtering
is precise and designed to avoid filtering out legitimate
Conventional proxy-based filtering
routes traffic through a bottleneck that can slow performance
significantly: the single computer through which you
must access the Internet can be overwhelmed by heavy
With TheJnet, traffic is fast
because each computer connects directly to the Internet.
For each computer, you simply dial in to TheJnet as
your Internet service provider and supply a user name
and password. As students use the Internet, TheJnet
then monitors the Internet addresses they request. Only
when they request a site that is prohibited does TheJnet
interfere, jumping in and blocking access to that site.
At TheJnet, we recognize that
different employees, different students, and different
classrooms within the same school may have different
needs for access and filtering, so we provide five standard
filtering profiles for you to choose from, or you can
ask us to create custom profiles to suit your needs.
Each account can accommodate up to five users, each
with its own e-mail, password, and filtering profile.
TheJnet lets you choose precisely
which types of content to block in each profile. For
example, you can block chat sites, shopping sites, or
gaming sites. And unlike proxy-based filtering, TheJnet
can selectively filter freeware, shareware, video, and
audio and block only the objectionable ones, rather
than blocking all or none. Of course, in keeping with
our values and philosophy, there are certain pornographic
sites to which we do not allow access under any profile.
