VoIP Project overview

The goal of the VoIP Project is to replace the university’s existing telephone system with a Voice Over Internet Protocol (VoIP)-based system. The new system has been purchased, and installation of the core was completed in Fall 2012. In Spring 2013, deployments will begin in buildings across campus. The deployment committee has decided to hire a contractor (Mutual Telecom Services, Inc.) for the majority of the in-building work in order to complete the deployment in approximately two years, thereby accelerating features and cost savings for units.

Please see the ITS project page at utexas.edu/its/voip for more information.

Cost of service

  • The service rate review is complete and the following rates have been approved: $5/month for basic telephone service; $17/month for business-class service; and $19/month for approved analog service.  For more detail on service costs, visit the Voice Services site.
  • Units will incur instrument, network, and staffing costs; initial deployment staffing will be provided by the contractor.
  • Financing will be available for the initial deployment.

Supported phone sets
