Schools learn to use VoIP to cut costs

A district of schools in America has adopted Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) solutions as a way of cutting costs and improving efficiency.

Located in Tennessee, the Memphis City Schools (MCS) organisation has employed a district-wide VoIP network to cover thirteen and a half thousand telephone and fax extensions. The high quality VoIP calls are made on a new fibre-optic broadband connection.

Only implemented two months ago, MSC has already seen considerable cost savings with bills cut in half. The organisation is also finding VoIP  invaluable in helping to establish modes of communication between the schools.

The deputy superintendent of academic technology for MCS, Irving Hamer, said: "We have created a world class IT foundation with which to launch critical instructional.

“This partnership will improve operational solutions and our professional development.”

MCS is one of the largest school districts in the United States of America, with more than one hundred thousand students and six thousand staff.
