ACC Network Operations Center

To prepare Georgia Tech for the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) to move their sports broadcasting from Raycom to the ACC Network, JE Dunn repurposed a 6,700 square foot facilities building, into a full-fledged broadcast studio. The space is fully equipped with UPS, fire alarm, structured cabling, broadcast cabling, access control, and a dimming system. Transmitting a network of this caliber requires high-quality efficiency, precision, and collaboration between all partners. When preparing for the design and construction of the Georgia Institute of Technology ACC Network Center, Georgia Tech selected JE Dunn and its Smart Building Solutions (SBS) team to implement a fully integrated operations system that would improve efficiency, reduce energy costs, and significantly enhance network operations.

To further improve efficiency for the network—and the school’s entire campus— the SBS group added the OSP fiber backbone connecting this Ops Center with each of the sporting venues throughout the campus. After constructing a new telecommunications room in each of the sporting venues, they extended the fiber to the camera locations throughout the venues, terminating that cable in a custom-made connection panel.

Through careful planning and coordination between design and construction operations partners, the project was completed ahead of schedule and not only provided the Georgia Institute Technology athletics department with their complete wish list items, but also delivered a state-of-the-art studio customized to their unique needs.
