The Telecommunications Systems Management (TSM) case study team from Murray State University won the 2017 ITERA National Case Study Competition.
Teams of students were required to solve a hypothetical, but realistic, telecommunications problem at the annual competition. This year the case study challenged student teams to develop a model architecture for a national network that would support the secure movement of personal health record information amongst medical service providers as directed by individual record holders.
The finalists included Murray State University, James Madison University, Ball State University and Ohio University. This is the 11th time Murray State has qualified as a finalist and the fifth time winning the national competition. Kenneth Jessee, Prathyusha Chowdary Recherla, Susheel Valtoori, Wesley Morefield and William Hudson formed this year’s TSM case study team. Kenneth Jessee represented Murray State at the competition. Michael Ramage, director of the Center for TSM, was the faculty sponsor and mentor for the winning team. Each member of the winning team received an iPad courtesy of Facebook for his or her victory in the competition.
