The Case Connection Zone is a research project with the goal of bringing 1 Gigabit Internet connectivity to the neighborhoods surrounding University Circle and Case Western Reserve University.


The current beta block, located in the Hessler Road and Hessler Court community, comprises 100 separate residences, each connected by a dedicated fiber to a high-speed switch. We are studying how this ultra high-speed network can be used together with new applications and services to improve the quality of life for the residents in health, energy, safety and education. In addition we are interested in the platform technologies such as multiparty HD or 3D video conferencing.
