VoIP Phone System for MSU
Minnesota State University, Mankato installed a new high tech phone system in July of 2005. This system communicates across the network rather than using traditional phone wiring. The technology, known as Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), adds features and capabilities not available in standard telephones. VoIP also reduces time and costs when phones need to be moved.
Reducing Telecommunication Costs
The Cisco phone system had significantly decreased telecommunication costs throughout the years.
Long distance calls to the Twin Cities metro area are toll free which provides additional savings to the University. In the future, the VoIP phone system may enable national toll-free calling.
