Pioneering projects all part of university's £10m VoIP deal

The University of Salford has signed a 20-year deal with ntl Business to deploy an IP telephony system and a wide area network linking more than 30 university buildings at speeds of 1Gbyte a second and above.

The £10m deal includes a partnership agreement that will see ntl and the university develop pioneering systems for the university and the wider community.

As part of the contract, ntl will be responsible for all the university's inbound and outbound voice services on ntl's NTG educational tariff.

Tony Lewis, Salford University's director of information services, said, "An ambitious migration project is under way that will utilise dark-fibre cable and will provide VoIP telephony to the desktops of about 3,000 staff."
