Voice Over IP

Voice over IP (VoIP) is becoming an increasingly popular form of telephone service. VoIP works by taking the voice signals on your telephone, converting the signals to digital information, and sending them over a computer network instead of over traditional telephone lines.

VoIP can be installed anywhere the ethernet network is available. When installed, the VoIP phone will plug into the network outlet and the computer will plug in the back of the phone, so one outlet can serve both devices.

The goal of the VoIP project is to convert the entire campus to VoIP. The change involves installing new hardware and software within the PVAMU network, and also providing new IP telephone sets for faculty and staff.
