Not yet handling this issue on my campus, but it seems to me the solution
is for a campus's IT to establish a dedicated, Deaf and HOH remote CART
bandwidth service. The idea is similar to the "guest" bandwith available to
non-campus persons, and then a password protected wifi available to those
with the log in credentials. Why not create a third one and lock it down
for remote CART purposes?
