Windstream is installing a new fiber optic network to connect the school’s two campuses with two 50 MB data circuits to provide the school with increased bandwidth and faster Internet speeds. In addition, Windstream will connect the two campuses with Windstream’s Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) network.
Windstream is replacing two antiquated phone systems operating independently on each St. Mary’s campus with Windstream’s IP Simple solution. The Windstream IP Simple solution is a fully integrated Managed Unified Communications solution combining Voice over IP (VoIP), data, and a business phone system from Allworx – a Windstream company – into one bundle. With the IP Simple solution from Windstream, St. Mary’s will be receiving Allworx 48x Phone Systems, which support up to 250 users per system and will offer faculty and staff advanced features such as built-in voicemail with unified messaging, and site-to-site networking that will connect both campuses.
