This solution will enable the college to move beyond the capabilities of the legacy PBX it has depended on for inbound and outbound phone service and extension to extension calls between its primary locations. The new IP solution allows for VoIP voice traffic between the main Greeley campus and the downtown Greeley annex, as well as the newly opened Ft Lupton Construction and Automotive Technology facility. This solution provides the users at these sites the ability to have Direct Inward Dial (DID) telephone numbers and voice mail boxes off of the PBX at the main campus.
“We were looking for a solution that would provide our smaller remote sites with the same features and functionality that the users at our larger sites currently enjoy”, states Deb Martinez, Enterprise Telephony coordinator for Aims College. “IP enabling the current PBX was a cost effective way of leveraging the benefits of VoIP technology without the expense of replacing the system. We were able to protect the college’s investment in their current Avaya PBX”, says Hi Country account executive, Rob Frank.
