From Rockets to Relay
The next version of your Lightspeed web filter is here: Relay! It has everything you loved about your Longhorn Rockets – and so much more!
The best of both worlds
When you upgrade, you'll still have access to your Rocket interface, but by putting Relay Smart Agents on your devices, you get the best of both worlds: scalable, smart, easy end-to-end filtering for every school-owned device plus BYOD and IoT devices — all with less (or zero!) hardware to continue buying and maintaining.
Benefits of Switching to Relay
Save time with a smarter UI, easier controls, and effortless SSL decryption.
Save money with no more hardware to buy, no maintenance, reduced management time, and additional features that are likely separate line items in your budget.
End Duplicated Tasks
End duplicated tasks with a single interface for filtering, user management, and MDM.
Get more functionality like device location, flagged content, Safety Check, and more.
Secure and Protect
Secure and protect your data with our secure and compliant cloud infrastructure.
Relay has more than your Rocket ever could.
Relay has everything you need and more to ensure your 1:1 device program is successfully deployed, maintained, and utilized. With Relay you can filter, manage, protect and monitor with a single unified platform. With our cloud infrastructure, you get device geolocation, automatic back-ups, redundancy, and so much more.
And lots more.

What about my appliance?
You can convert your Rocket Web Filter appliance to a Relay Rocket, intercepting network traffic (anything without a Smart Agent, like BYOD or IoT) and sending it straight to Relay so you have one interface for every bit of traffic.
Use your existing hardware
Relay can be configured to use as much or as little of your existing hardware as you want. Most schools choose to deploy Smart Agents to all mobile devices while converting a Rocket to a Relay Rocket for other network traffic.
How to upgrade?
It's easy! Once you've worked with your sales rep for an updated quote, all you need to do is log in and push out smart agents to your mobile devices. Convert your Rocket to a Relay Rocket and after some easy set up it will automatically ignore Smart Agent traffic, and filter and report all other traffic right to your Relay interface.
