Since the start of the Volunteer Boulevard Streetscape project, OIT has worked with CommScope, a manufacturer of fiber optic cabling and equipment, to bring wireless and public safety cameras to the outdoors. Along Volunteer Boulevard, WiFi access points and cameras have been installed using CommScope’s Powered Fiber Cable System. OIT also upgraded the Sorority Village and Fraternity Park camera systems with this equipment. As the Andy Holt Streetscape project gets underway, OIT will deploy this same technology to deliver services in that project. OIT was one of the first adopters of this technology after a lengthy test period with CommScope.
