As part of their Center for Criminal Justice, Intelligence, and Cybersecurity located in Dana Hall, SUNY Canton dedicated $500,000 to fund a new state-of-the-art cybersecurity computer laboratory in Nevaldine Hall. This laboratory will aid students who are participants in SUNY Canton’s sophisticated approach to the fields of criminal justice and security.
This work included a new rooftop mechanical HVAC system to accommodate the additional heat output of the computer equipment. We worked closely with the SUNY IT Group and outfitted the room with a complex infrastructure of cable tray, data cabling, data rack equipment and associated infrastructure to support the technology that the lab required. New power distribution was also needed to support the equipment and fiber optic cabling was extended into the space. The fire alarm and detection system were modified to accommodate the space layout. The lighting was replaced with high efficiency dimmable LED and a RF Faraday cage room was introduced into the space permitting a controlled hacking environment for student training.
