Lightspeed is Heading to ISTE 2019 – See What’s New!

It’s time for ISTE 2019 and Lightspeed Systems is excited to see everyone in Philly! The new products and features we’ll be showing off make Relay the one product you need to have for your 1:1 program and student safety mission!

If you’re heading to ISTE come see us in booth #1432; if you’re #notatISTE, here’s a rundown of the latest and greatest things we’ll be showing off.

Relay Rockets

These virtual “Rockets” bring end-to-end filtering and safety to your Relay deployment, filtering any traffic on any device that doesn’t have a Smart Agent installed. Relay Rockets even provide user authentication. With a Relay Rocket added to Relay, you can go free of hardware and get complete protection for every school device, every guest and BYOD device, Internet of Things devices, and all the other traffic on your network.

Why you need to see it: Managing one filter for mobile devices and another for network traffic wastes your time and money. One end-to-end solution (with no hardware required) gives you the most powerful filtering and safety, all in a single platform that saves time and money and provides a truly holistic view of all activity. Unlike other solutions, it is backed by our comprehensive database, powerful policies, and twenty years of experience filtering school networks.


Our newest component, Analytics powered by Relay, gives you the data you need to make smart decisions about your ed-tech spending. See where your money is going; where unused licenses are bringing down ROI; where you should focus PD; and what software in use across your schools is putting student data privacy at risk. (And with Relay Filter paired with Analytics, once you spot those rogue apps, you can block them in a click! That’s the power of a complete 1:1 platform.)

Why you need to see it: 67% of ed-tech licenses schools have purchased are unused – but it’s hard to know which ones. Analytics makes it easy to see where your budget is going so you can make the most of it. Unlike other solutions, Analytics reports on all traffic, across all platforms and operating systems, without hardware or user logins, for an easy implementation and a complete and actionable view of your ed-tech spending.


While IT is purchasing and managing and filtering all your school devices, they’re out being used by students and teachers in classroom across your district. With Classroom, teachers get screen monitoring and controls they need while IT maintains centralized reporting and policies. Oh, and it’s cross-platform so your teachers can use Classroom for Chrome, Mac, and Windows devices!

Why you need to see it: Teachers need tools that help them easily, effectively, and safely integrate devices into learning – and students need help staying on track. Unlike other solutions, Classroom gives you all that with cross-platform support, powerful IT controls, an easy-to-use interface, and AI-based alerts to free teachers from their desks. Plus we have all the free training they need to be up and running next school year.

Safety Check

Student safety is our mission and Safety Check takes that to the next level, with AI analysis and real-time alerts on students who are at risk of suicide or other concerns. With Safety Check, schools get the right data to the right people at the right time to be proactive and save students’ lives.

Why you need to see it: Safety Check does more than any other solution can, because we filter and report on more than any other solution can. We analyze ALL activity on EVERY site (not just specific sites or operating systems) to provide better, more actionable alerts. Plus, unlike other solutions Safety Check complies with student data privacy best practices, keeping this sensitive information securely stored and under your control.

The whole Relay platform

Our complete Relay platform gives you everything you need to make technology use in your schools safe, easily managed and effective.
