A recognition ceremony and dedication on Oct. 9 marked the installation of advanced switching and router system technologies donated by Frontier Corp. for the telecommunications lab in RIT’s College of Applied Science and Technology. From left, Fred Walker, dean of CAST; Ann Burr, chairman of Frontier Communications of Rochester and RIT trustee; Mark Davis, director of the northeast regional planning of Frontier Communications; and RIT President Bill Destler attended the event. Frontier and its vendor partners, Actelis, Adtran, Calix and Cisco, donated the equipment to the college’s electrical, computer and telecommunications engineering technology department. It is modeled after a telecommunications central office and will enable RIT students to be trained on today’s telecommunications networks.
