Academic Center
 
The Academic Center houses GWU's PBX. GWU's entire phone system is based around a Lucent Definity G3. What the picture doesn't show is the electronic lock and card reader that control access to the switchroom.

Because the Academic Center houses the campus switch, it is also the center for cable distribution. This maze can be found on the first level of the parking system under the Academic Center. Perspective is a little messed up, but the two pictures give a good idea of how large this cable run is. The telephone analogs are obvious in the photos. The silver boxes (better seen on the photo to the left) are amplifiers for the cable TV system. After hours this level of the parking lot is locked, so go down through the stairwell two floors and walk up the ramp. No good beige-boxing can be had here.
