why we are meeting today
Why We Are Meeting Today?
  • Since 2007, ComTech has converted 5,500 telephone lines from AT&T Centrex service to the ComTech supported Cisco Call Manager
  • All Voice Mail users transitioned to Cisco Unity Voicemail – Unified Messaging deployed
  • Phase II – Convert remaining AT&T lines to VoIP
ip telephony phase ii roadmap
IP Telephony Phase II Roadmap
  • Approximately 5,500 Centrex lines remain on the AT&T network. Converting these lines to Cisco provides the following advantages:
    • Replaces the aging Meridian sets with Cisco IP handsets
    • Advances the deployment of Cisco’s Unified Communication suite
    • Significant cost savings to the University.
ip telephony phase ii objectives
IP Telephony Phase II Objectives
  • Convert ~100 telephone sets per week
  • 15 month project duration
  • Data collection (inventory every telephone to be transitioned)
  • Update campus systems: E-911, ITRACS, MySoft, etc.
  • Deployment of Cisco sets and retrieval of Meridian sets
ip telephony phase ii objectives1
IP Telephony Phase II Objectives
  • 60 Days - Initial contact from Comtech
  • 35 Days final date for submission of requested information
  • Any information received after this date, will be worked after the scheduled cutover date and will be worked as a normal work order
  • Cutover dated provided: 7 days after cutover, all changes will need to be sent via normal channels.

IP Telephony Phase II

This project is fully funded by OIT and the following types of sets will be converted:

  • All Meridian digital sets
  • All analog sets with appearances on Meridian sets which were not converted as part of phase I (Includes fax lines, PC Modem, etc.)
  • NOTelevators, fire alarms, security alarms, blue lights, freezer/lab sensors, analog lines already converted to IPT, etc
how do we determine the sets to be deployed
How do we determine the sets to be deployed?
  • Assess and recommend current telephone sets to be scheduled for conversion from AT&T to IPT
  • Review current business call flow and recommend additional options
  • Verify number of lines needed & eliminate lines no longer necessary
  • Negotiate a final selection of phone set type, number of lines needed, business line call flow, conversion date, etc.

AT&T Centrex & Cisco Call Manager
  • Centrex service is managed by AT&T: normal single line telephone service with features added including call forward, call transfer, toll restriction, call hold, etc.
  • AT&T central office is located at Morgan Street.
  • Voice over IP (VoIP) is a feature rich IP based telephony system that is managed and administered by Comtech, via Cisco Call Manager
  • Service is delivered across NC State’s data network
