Vonage Helps Landlines Die To Computer Technology

Landlines May Die To Computer Technology

February 18, 2005

By Tom Howell Jr

OIT considers plan to send calls using Internet connection.

The Office of Information Technology has assembled a committee to look into refreshing the campus telecommunications system and explore the possibility of sending phone conversations along computer lines.

The committee, consisting of representatives elected by deans and vice presidents, is looking into the installation of Voice-over-Internet Protocol, OIT spokeswoman Amy Ginther said. Voip allows people to make telephone calls over a broadband Internet connection rather than a regular phone line. The switch would save money because calls would go over existing computer connections, making phone lines unnecessary.

“It’s a cost-effective way of delivering service,” she said. The amount of money the university would save is still unclear.

When making Voip calls, users hear a dial tone and dial the number as usual, but the analog audio signal is then converted to digital data and sent over the Internet, according to the Federal Communications Commission. The signal is then converted back so it can reach a regular phone number.

Responsibilities of the committee include selecting a vendor and awarding a contract. The committee will have to examine what each Voip vendor has to offer, including the quality of the service.

The sound of Voip conversations may take some getting used to.
“It’s a different quality of experience and a different sound, but it’s stable,” Ginther said. “Anyone who uses a cell phone should be used to this kind of thing.”

Currently, calls to campus numbers are free for students in residence halls, but both local and long distance calls are billed through PaeTec Communications. The company charges 9 cents per local call and offers two long distance plans: either 8.9 cents per minute or $7.95 per month plus 3.9 cents per minute.

Students are hopeful a switch to Voip might reduce these rates.

“I never use my dorm phone anyway, but I might if we saved money,” said sophomore criminology and criminal justice major David Gradin.

Freshman English major Jimmy Leathers agreed.

“The main reason I don’t use the dorm phone is you can’t make local calls without paying for it,” he explained.
Despite the lower cost, only four percent of households use Voip service, the Telecommunications Industry Association announced this week. But use is on the rise. The association found 36 percent of households are at least somewhat interested in it, and predicts there will be 10 million total Voip users by the end of this year and 26 million in 2008.

Leading Voip vendors include Vonage and Nortel. Vonage allows users to add as many numbers as they want and provides a feature called SoftPhone that allows people to use their computer as a telephone by speaking through a headset.

Nortel champions Voip due to its technical efficiency in managing fewer systems by eliminating phone lines. Voip also allows for better bandwidth efficiency, Nortel states, because information is only transferred when users are actually speaking, which is referred to as silence suppression.

OIT would not comment on which vendors the university is looking at.

The Voip boom has also attracted the attention of the Federal Communications Commission. The FCC announced on Saturday VoIP, as an entirely Internet based service, is not subject to regulation. The commission added that it would further examine “what its role should be in this new environment of increased consumer choice and what it can best do to meet its role of safeguarding the public interest.”
