University of Mobile Taps Callis Communications for Hosted VoIP and Wireless Internet
Date:8/20/2008

Additional Deployment for St. Andrew's Episcopal School Extends Geographic Service Reach, Green IT Strategy and Educational Market Momentum

Mobile, AL (PRWEB) August 20, 2008 -- Callis Communications, a leading regional provider of hosted telephony and managed Voice-over-IP (VoIP) services for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs), today announced the latest two deployments of its Voicepath solution for the University of Mobile and St. Andrew's Episcopal School. The new customers mark the company's deepening penetration of the educational market, along with the expansion of its evolving green strategy and service area to new metropolitan markets in Mississippi.

Having outgrown their aging PBX system and in need of a system that could add phone extensions, the University of Mobile chose Callis Voicepath, an integrated suite of next-generation, fully-managed IP services, to power 750 phones at its 20- building campus in Mobile, Ala. Callis has also added wireless Internet to every dorm room at the school, which has nearly 1,600 students.

"The University had limited staff, which we were able to augment during the rollout," said Dean Parker president and CEO of Callis. "We built an IP telephony infrastructure that helps them stay competitive in providing amenities to current and prospective students, while reducing their up-front costs."

Mark Foley, president of the University of Mobile, said, "We chose Callis for two reasons: first, their ability to design a solution based on our needs and, second, their dedication to an unmatched level of customer service. We couldn't be more pleased about our partnership with Callis."

In need of reliable voice and data services at a lower, more predictable cost, St. Andrew's Episcopal School also selected Voicepath for its two K-12 campuses in Jackson and Ridgeland, Miss. The solution also provides a reliable broadcast system for emergency alerts during threatening weather or other crisis situations via loudspeakers in common areas and classroom phones.

The implementation follows the successful model recently established by Callis with White-Spunner Construction in Mobile, Ala., to help its customers achieve environmental-friendly energy efficiency. This approach involves deploying phones throughout customer sites powered by a central source, rather than plugging each phone into individual power outlets. Two redundant common switches with one power source enable the phone network, data network and power supply to run over the same wires.

In addition, Voicepath is provisioned on one common telephone switch that feeds to a private network that runs back to Callis's network operations center , eliminating the need for a traditional system that can pull 20 to 30 amps of power on its own. As a result, St. Andrew's has a green solution that reduces its energy consumption by at least 50 percent over alternative offerings.
