Business Unit: Information Technology Services
Decreasing the time to science for researchers and increasing productivity and individual mobility for all community members are essential to support the considerable growth in both the university’s research enterprise as well as the institution’s overall global footprint. This multiyear, multiphase project, in collaboration with Northeastern’s Facilities division, research enterprise, and other campus stakeholders, will address these imperatives by updating and improving the campus wired and wireless networks centered out of Northeastern’s Boston location. These updates will enable Northeastern to deliver more robust campus internet that is 10-times faster than the current infrastructure, enabling researchers and other members of the campus community to move data more efficiently and effectively.
- Kick-off: September 2021
- Target delivery date: November 30, 2022
Phase 1 work includes five buildings on the Boston campus: West Village H, Snell Engineering, ISEC, Egan Research Center, and Dana. Vendors and contractors have been engaged and have begun work in these buildings. The desired go-live date has been postponed from the original June 2022 date due to the global supply chain issues impacting equipment and hardware availability.
