2008 Winner Profile

University of Notre Dame

Project Description:
The University of Notre Dame replaced 3,364 wireline telephones in its residence halls with a multicarrier cellular distributed antenna system supplied by NextG. Notre Dame redirected the $1 million per year used to pay for the residence-hall telephones to fund a 10-year contract with Comcast and bring cable TV to all campus student rooms and Wi-Fi access to all residence halls. An emergency system employs multiple communications conduits, including cellular broadcast via the NTI Group's Connect-Ed emergency notification service and video feeds via the Comcast campus cable system.
