With VoIP in Place, Old Phone System Retired
With the successful summer installation of the new Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) system, the time has come for the official retirement of the university’s old telephone and voice mail systems. Yesterday members of the Network and Server Systems team, including Director Mark Young, Telephony Manager Larry Wussow, and Network Manager Dave Hamwey, shut down power to these systems, parts of which were almost 20 years old.
“Congratulations to Larry, Dave, Mark and the many others on the TS team who participated in this momentous achievement,” stated CTO William Morse. “The old system served us very well, and I fully expect our new VoIP system will serve us equally well for the future.”
