Davis and Armstrong public copiers not available this week

A new PaperCut public printing and copying management system is being configured this week which necessitates the libraries’ public copiers be temporarily shutdown.  The Equitrac Canon copiers were removed yesterday and Kyocera machines were installed.  Once the Kyocera multi-function machines are configured both public printing and copying will be combined into one system.   Students will be able to use their quota for copying as well as printing and can add money using a credit card.

VoIP comes to the Snow Bowl

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

Telephone Services recently installed a new voice over IP telephone system at the Middlebury College Snow Bowl.  It is an Aastra MX-One Lite telephony server which integrates fully to the main campus Aastra (Ericsson) phone system.  Next time you need to call the Bowl just dial SNOW (7669).

Our local contractor, Business Telephone Systems, working with our telephone system vendor, Black Box Network Services, installed the new server and phones in late September.  We are using the existing campus fiber network that was connected to the Bowl in the spring of 2009.  Howie McCausland and I tested the voice quality over the fiber with the vendor this past August.  Our network passed the test with flying colors.

The Snow Bowl now has a combination of IP phones in the offices and analog lines elsewhere.   The two major requirements for the new system were that it had enough analog trunk lines to accommodate the telephones at the lift load and unload stations and that the system not need dedicated bandwidth on the fiber.  A POE switch was installed to keep the IP phones going during a power outage, and in the event of a network outage the phones will failover to one of the four telephone company analog trunks remaining.
