George Washington University
has a fascinating communications infrastructure. As the buildings
at GW have been built and renovated at disparate times, pre-divestiture
relics sit alongside some of the newest systems available. GW's phone system
revolves around a Lucent Definity G3 phone system. The student data connections
(GW priding itself on having internet available in almost all dorms) are
nominal 10BaseT with ATM over fiber backbones.
