Auckland University of Technology Moves to IP Voice and Video
Posted on 19-Aug-2005 09:31 | Tags Filed under: News



The Auckland University of Technology (AUT) has become the first New Zealand University to install an Internet Protocol (IP) Communications system from Cisco Systems. The network, which will support 1,800 Cisco IP phones, will help AUT improve communications efficiencies and deliver new services to its users.

AUT has migrated to IP-based voice, video and data communications system to reduce operational costs across its four campuses. For instance, the single IP network will allow AUT to cater more efficiently for 'moves, adds and changes' when staff move from one location to another. Further, the network will allow AUT to simplify network management across its campuses.

The network is based on the deployment of 1,800 Cisco handsets, comprising a mix of 7960, 7940 and 7912 IP phones, Cisco CallManager software, Cisco 2821 routers, VG 248 gateways and Catalyst 3560 and Catalyst 2950 switches at the network edge.

Cisco worked with IBM to design, deploy and support the network, which has replaced AUT's aging private branch exchange (PBX)-based telephony network.

IBM's manager of Integrated Technology Services, Mal Mackay said; "IBM is delighted with the implementation and feedback from the university had been very positive. From a change management perspective, this was one of the most efficient deployments of a new IP Communications infrastructure that IBM and Cisco have been involved with in New Zealand. The implementation underlines IBM's expertise in providing integrated voice solutions that allow organisations like AUT to innovate and expand into new areas smartly and quickly, and with demonstrable business results."
