VoIP to the Rescue
Milner, Jacob
T.H.E. Journal, v33 n5 p30-35 Dec 2005
Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) is everywhere. The technology lets users make and receive phone calls over the Internet, transporting voice traffic alongside data traffic such as instant messages (IMs) and e-mail. While the number of consumer customers using VoIP increases every week, the technology is finding its way into K-12 education as well. In the last few years, VoIP has helped many school districts save big bucks on phone charges and administrative costs, as well as improve communications across the board. In three districts in particular, Clark County School District (Nevada), David Douglas School District (Oregon), and Saugus Union School District (California), the technology has revolutionized telecom strategies, inspiring flexibility, creativity, and connectivity in ways technologists never dreamed. This article shares the stories of these three districts which successfully implemented VoIP to enhance their communication systems.
