IPT Network Support – Interconnect Service (Service Code: 623.000.020) Participating districts have the opportunity to connect their phone network to the regional phone network. This allows for increased communication between districts at a significantly reduced cost via on-network dialing. Participating districts can take advantage of least-cost routing. Because NERIC is uniquely positioned with offices in Albany, Schoharie and Plattsburgh, calls made to those areas would be charged as local calls, saving the district long-distance charges.
VoIP Hosted Service (Service Code: 623.000.090) For
those looking to implement a VoIP system, NERIC will host your phones on
our servers. NERIC staff will implement all changes, additions or moves to
your phones and voicemail. This shared service saves districts the cost of
servers, equipment maintenance, staff and facility resources associated
with IP telephony. Additional features available to a hosted district are
call pattern reports, 911 notification to select staff, use of alternative
outgoing phone lines should the district’s fail and broadcast paging.
