Voice over IPSpring LNA Meeting

April 1, 2002

What is voice over ip l.jpg
What is Voice over IP?

  • A technology for transporting integrated digital voice, video and data over IP networks.

  • VoIP is considered by some as the next evolutionary step in the digital transmission of data

  • The technology that turns voice conversations into data packets and sends them out over a packet switched IP network.

  • To determine the feasibility and validate the business benefits to Stanford of implementing VoIP.

  • Evaluate features and benefits of IP telephony while exposing the potential risks.

  • Assess potential operational savings from a converged voice and data network.

  • Answer the question; “Can IP Telephony be the primary telecommunications solution for Stanford University?”

Voip objectives l.jpg
VoIP Objectives

  • Establish a hardened end to end network utility

  • Provide a converged voice and data network

  • Move communication and network equipment out of Forsythe

  • Increase network functionality and mean time to deploy services

    • Simplify network in closets and office with the shared use of the data network

    • Immediate activation when moving a phone

    • Desktop enhancements and mobility

Voip objectives5 l.jpg
VoIP Objectives

  • Ensure redundancy across the University with no single point of failure

  • Retire the current voice switch

  • Position Stanford at the forefront of integrated voice, video and data that could enhance our partnerships and corporate relationships

  • A major advantage of VoIP and internet telephony is that it avoids the tolls charged by ordinary telephone service.

Voip pilot scope l.jpg
VoIP Pilot Scope

  • Evaluate vendor’s proposals and decide technology for pilots

  • Pilot sites will be Gates/Computer Science and five sites within ITSS

  • Perform a physical inventory of the closets for each pilot site

  • Evaluate and upgrade the network backbone and core infrastructure

  • Provide tools and training for voice and data engineers

VoIP Pilot Scope

  • Evaluate, design and test voice features and functions based on voice requirements and regulations

  • Resolve the policy and technical issues that will impact the expansion across campus

  • Create end-user documentation and training

  • Implement approximately 650 IP phones

  • Define the ROI

  • Evaluate cost model options

  • Partner with Campus IT Directors

  • Survey the client community

  • Make go/no go decision

  • Decide on vendor

  • Define future deliverables in a phased approach

Voip constraints and risks l.jpg
VoIP Constraints and Risks

  • Consider the current University budget constraints when considering a project of this magnitude

  • Campus acceptance of the utility model for a converged voice and data network

  • Removal of the voice switch will be based on resolution of all the technology challenges associated with the voice features

  • There is no like environment that has implemented VoIP, so there are no best practices

Voip considerations and assumptions l.jpg
VoIP Considerations and Assumptions

  • The project team will be managed by ITSS with active participation from campus IT units

  • The focus and direction will be closely aligned with the TMIS project

  • The project funding will be identified and approved

  • The project will be implemented based on a phased approach

Voip considerations and assumptions11 l.jpg
VoIP Considerations and Assumptions

  • ITSS will merge the current expertise to support a converged network

  • The network must provide the same reliability as the traditional PBX

  • For the implementation outside contractor resources will be required

Suggestions l.jpg

  • How would you like to be kept in the loop?

  • What else can I provide about this project that would be helpful?
