College Builds Opportunities and Cuts Costs With Unified Communications
Cambrian College in Sudbury, Ontario, Canada, wanted to enhance its online and distance-learning programs to reach more students in the local community and remote areas. In addition, Cambrian wanted to add more phone lines so that every employee and classroom had a dedicated extension. Instead of expanding its current systems, the college decided to implement Voice Over IP (VoIP) telephony, unified messaging, and Web conferencing. Rather than use components from multiple vendors, Cambrian College chose to go with Microsoft and built a unified communications solution based on Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 and Microsoft Exchange Server 2007.
