How Many Wires in a Wireless Building?

by in , 0

CI's West Hall, scheduled for completion in 2015, is in the early design phase now. Today a group us met with the architects to discuss our overall technology strategy for the building. We are proceeding on the assumption that there will be very few hard-wired network devices of any kind - nearly everything will be wireless. While we may need more wireless infrastructure than in our current buildings, reducing the number of hard-wired stations will reduce the construction cost, the electricity needs and the cooling requirements for the building, making it not only more usable, but "greener" at the same time. So while we will still need some wires in a "wireless" building, we're excited about building a new building with many fewer wires.
