VoiceNext for Higher Education

Traditional communications offerings built around Centrex or PBXs are increasingly unable to satisfy campus requirements. As a result, institutions are turning to IP communications to lower costs, integrate new technology, and provide innovative services for students.

VoiceNEXT provides hosted IP communications, combining the most innovative voice applications, rich back-office capabilities, and an open, standards-based architecture. VoiceNEXT administrative hierarchy enables institutions to simultaneously deliver services to faculty & staff, while reselling services to students.

By deploying VoiceNEXT solutions, institutions can complement or replace existing telecom equipment/services, improve economics, and streamline operations.

VoiceNEXT Campus Solutions

VoiceNEXT voice applications function over broadband IP networks and can deliver service to analog/digital handsets through integrated access devices (IADs). VoiceNEXT provides basic feature-functionality such as dial tone and call waiting as well as advanced features such as find-me/follow-me and unified messaging. With a tested system capacity of millions of users, VoiceNEXT offers the scale and performance to support the largest institutions in a variety of deployment scenarios.

As a hosted platform, VoiceNEXT's call control intelligence resides in the network, enabling service delivery and on-net calling across locations, including out-of-region and international sites.

With such a broad range of networking and service capabilities, VoiceNEXT offers multiple campus solutions including Centrex line replacement, PBX replacement, access channel consolidation, premises network convergence, and private voice networking.

Open Communications and Network Architecture

Campus voice and data networks face constant pressure to integrate applications and equipment to meet demand for new service. Most traditional voice systems operate on proprietary standards that limit or prohibit integration of new technologies and new end-user devices (PDAs, soft clients, etc.).

VoiceNEXT operates on open networking standards such as SIP. VoiceNEXTs use of open standards enables rapid integration with IP applications and allows campuses to consolidate voice and data network assets for long-term cost savings.

Campuses can see the benefits of migrating to an open voice architecture without completely overhauling existing telecom assets. VoiceNEXT private voice networking enables interconnection with most existing telecom equipment for a phased implementation. This approach minimizes financial outlay and disruption as users are migrated to a fully hosted solution in coordination with PBX end-of-life schedules.

Complementing VoiceNEXT use on open standards is a vigorous interoperability program for equipment that includes IP phones, soft clients, IADs, network gateways, and softswitches. The resulting breadth of selection enables campuses to select certified partner equipment for best-of-breed solutions and competitive economics.

Rich Platform Capabilities with Turnkey Services

VoiceNEXT fits the ccscsampus environment by combining extensive platform capabilities with turnkey telecom applications. Carrier-grade back-office functionality and extensive use of web configuration enables a streamlined and rapid deployment of ready-made feature packages.

VoiceNEXT further streamlines operations through centralizing system management and distributing service management. While the system is hosted in the network operations center, moves, adds, and changes (MACs) can be performed by site administrators through an intuitive web interface in real time.
