Campus Communication

WALLACE MLYNIEC, A professor of clinical legal studies at Georgetown University, learned the art of communicating about campus construction out of sheer necessity. When the Hotung International Law Building and the Georgetown Sport and Fitness Center were constructed a few years ago next to two student residences and a classroom building at the Law School campus, "the notion of not letting people know in advance what was going on very quickly became an issue for us," says Mlyniec, who was appointed chair of the project committee.

 
 
 
 

Bruce Grant, NEC’s assistant general manager for product management and an expert on VoIP, explains this technology and how to prepare for it.

 

Today's campus communities are more connected than ever, but at many colleges and universities the task of immediately notifying everyone about an emergency remains a challenge.

 

As colleges and universities increasingly implement wireless Internet access, teaching and learning can occur anywhere on campus. Now, with NEC’s Mobile WLAN, the concept of connections without boundaries extends even further to anywhere in North, Central and South America.
