Project of the Year
Launch of the Back Office/Broadcast Backbone
LAN and Network Deployment
Presented by Cindy Cortell, Major League
Cindy Cortell is representing the Major
League Baseball Network IT Department. Through this project, the
team was able to successfully launch the Major League Baseball Network
on January 1, 2009 in about 50 million homes, making it the largest single
network deployment in cable/satellite televison history. The project
team was given the exciting challenge of building a network infrastructure
from the ground up following the acquisition of MSNBC’s former studio in
Secaucus. The former MSNBC building required a complete overhaul
to replace the antiquated broadcast equipment and cabling with state of
the art, high definition broadcast systems and a fiber optic cable infrastructure
utilizing a 10 gigabit fiber backbone. In addition, there were no
existing studios to retrofit or IT infrastructure.
The team had a very aggressive and definitive
timeline for setting up the broadcast and back office backbone. Design,
build, and implementation were accelerated. Work that normally would
take two months was completed over two weekends. As you may imagine,
this presented various challenges which are addressed in the presentation.

Secure Financial Transaction Infrastructure
(Student Paper of the Year)
Presented by Paola Gutierrez, Deborah
Sgro, Linjun Zhang, Tom McCaffrey, and Thomas McCarthy
Although the current economic conditions
have made many of us more conservative when buying and selling stocks,
no matter the size or breadth of our portfolios one concern remains constant
– the need for secure financial transactions. The Secure Financial
Transaction Infrastructure (SFTI) project was designed and created to be
the financial industry’s most secure and resilient network for electronic
trading, connecting financial markets across the U.S., Europe, Asia, and
the Middle East. With SFTI, customers of the New York Stock Exchange
Euronext will be able to communicate and trade electronically with their
customers, suppliers, and business partners in a safe, secure, reliable
and efficient manner. These needs have taken on added dimensions
in the post-911 world.
The team being recognized today was one
of many submitted from Dr. Aaron Shenhar's Project Management and Leadership
class at Stevens Institute of Technology.
