As school districts replace their antiquated phone systems, a growing number of districts are choosing hosted, or “managed,” voice-over-IP service. Besides being easier to manage, hosted VoIP service also enables schools to leverage federal eRate discounts more effectively, its supporters say.
Unlike premise-based VoIP service, hosted VoIP is a cloud-based solution that delivers telephone service over the customer’s data network. The customer has no call-routing equipment or software to house, manage, or maintain on site. Many school districts have welcomed the hassle-free nature of hosted VoIP phone service—and many have found that it’s more cost-effective as well, because it’s often eligible for Priority One eRate funding.
