Welcome to Hawaii Center for Advanced Communications Connection One Site

HCAC is proud to be a part of the NSF I/U CRC “Connection One” for Telecommunications. Including the University of Hawaii and other universities in the Connection One Partnership, originally proposed by ASU, represents a strategic move that is expected to help broaden research services to member companies and provide opportunities for integrative/multidisciplinary research efforts that are critically needed in enabling next generations of telecommunication technologies. The University of Hawaii has research expertise in areas that complement the strengths of ASU and the University of Arizona. The University of Hawaii’s participation will not only enhance research results; but, also, increase the overall center effectiveness in making research advances and significant contributions to telecommunications.
