Case Connection Zone

Case Western Reserve University and OneCommunity launched the Case Connection Zone (CCZ) in 2010 as a short-term research project with the intent to explore the potential applications of high speed connectivity in health and wellness, energy and smart grid management, neighborhood safety and STEM education. The CCZ continues to provide high bandwidth (one gigabit per second) Internet connectivity to the 104 living units on Hessler Street in University Circle.

Research Computing is currently seeking interest among CWRU faculty in making use of the CCZ network and cohort for research and innovation. This includes assistance with developing funding proposals in the areas of data collection from Internet of things (IoT) devices, and from end users about the benefits of having a given technology on a high speed network. 

An early step in the CCZ assessment process included collecting demographic information from the current CCZ cohort. This research can be downloaded for review. 

Please contact Lee Zickel at with any questions.
