  • Telecom solutions for school districts

    A communication network with “excellent results”

    School complex 50 employees, 14 sites Nebraska, USA
    • Centralized communications for an extended site

      The Elkhorn Public School district includes 14 campuses, from elementary to high school, each of which previously had its own telephony infrastructure. In order to unify the communications network over the whole district and decrease the maintenance and use costs, the school district decided to install a global system integrating voice and data. This reduction in IT expenses on the initial cost of acquisition enabled staff to concentrate on their priorities: teaching, and new technologies that support teaching.

    • Dealing with ever-expanding numbers

      With numbers growing by 6% every year, new buildings were being built regularly, and classrooms were often being reorganized. Priority was given to a scalable communications platform and flexible tools that would allow the school district to access new functionality over time.

    • Strengthen security with a reliable telephony system

      Telephones were installed in each classroom to boost efficiency and safety. Elkhorn also equipped its staff with user-friendly telephones and collaborative tools, increasing internal efficiency. 

  • As we moved to a VoIP system, we felt Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise provided the most cost-effective solution for our growing district. We are still discovering all the things the system can provide to meet our needs, as we continually add buildings in our growing district.
