School District of Philadelphia Partners with VoIP Networks to Modernize UC

April 23, 2019

Digital transformations are happening everywhere. From hospitals to enterprises and schools, as the benefits of the cloud and innovative technologies are realized.

For the School District of Philadelphia, which is one of the largest in the country, this move is happening as part of a 5 year agreement with VoIP Networks to modernize and replace its telecommunications system.

VOIP Networks is a New Jersey-based provider of Mitel-powered UC solutions and will work to modernize communications for 228 schools with 20,000 endpoints as part of the deal.

To make this possible the company designed a private cloud architecture that connects the school’s fiber optic infrastructure to a UC network powered by Mitel.

Going this route offers the level of security and reliability needed by the education vertical while also delivering redundancy and the ability to scale should needs change for the school district.

VOIP Networks President/CEO Chuck Reagan commented on the contract win saying. "We're excited about bringing state-of-the-art Mitel technology to their growing school district and providing a safe environment for their children. We look forward to a long, mutually beneficial relationship with the School District of Philadelphia."

Mitel has been named a Gartner Magic Quadrant leader for UC five years in a row and recently made headlines for extending a partnership with Google Cloud to bring exceptional reliability and improved customer experiences to its users.

“High-performance organizations depend on their communications infrastructure. It’s the foundation of everything they do. Security risks and downtime can be devastating,” said Rich McBee, Chief Executive Officer, Mitel. “By anchoring our public and private solutions with Google Cloud Platform, Mitel customers can move forward with confidence, knowing their services are virtually bulletproof and the most advanced communications and collaboration capabilities are at their fingertips.”
