Broadband Center of Excellence

Broadband has become the cornerstone of our world’s infrastructure. Similar to electricity a century ago, broadband is the driver for this generation’s modern revolution. The broadband ecosystem already touches every aspect of our personal lives and work environment.

The UNH Broadband Center of Excellence (BCoE) provides unbiased information and demonstrations of broadband for the development of innovative network application experiments in the education, health, public safety, and economic development sectors to improve citizen’s quality of life. 

Ubiquitous, affordable, and robust broadband mean much more than Internet access. As important and democratizing as such access is, broadband, if deployed correctly, is the tool that can:

  • Enhance our nation’s global competitiveness
  • Help retain and grow high-quality jobs
  • Educate and train our population and keep us more competitive
  • Improve the quality of life for every citizen

The BCoE is chartered to lead our community in coordinating our broadband efforts into a unified set of focused activities while facilitating communication and information exchange among academic leaders, communities, industry participants and public policy makers.

We have as a focus “Ubiquitous Intelligence” through the monitoring, analyzing and controlling of the millions of networks of sensors, devices and networks-of-networks will foster the development and success of Intelligent Cities, Smart Campuses, telemedicine and connected cars and highway among others.  The Ubiquitous Intelligence Revolution is today’s equivalent of the Renaissance and the Industrial Revolution of past centuries and we believe that these “smart-projects” of the 21st Century will enable our society to improve quality of life and to reach higher levels of economic growth.
