A primary function of this department is to provide college wide voice services using an Avaya Communications Server 1000E (CS100E). Telephone services are provided at a level necessary to support the demanding administrative and academic needs of the college. Both conventional and voice over IP technologies are used to deliver telephone services.
The Telecommunications department also provides Unified Communications.
