'Connecting All Cars'--Rutgers Building Wireless Patrol Net

Rutgers University will design and deploy a wireless network that will connect its Division of Public Safety's 14 patrol vehicles.

Chartered in 1766, the historic university will create a network comprising laptops in the security vehicles, wireless modems, and high-definition video recording equipment. The network will provide enough bandwidth to accommodate automatic uploads from the high-def video gear to a central server.
