Carolina Digital Phone, a leading provider of USAC Category 1 E-Rate eligible hosted telecommunications for K-12 schools in the U.S. Southeast, announced that it has been awarded new contracts to install state-of-the art cloud phone solutions at two school systems North Carolina and Georgia, respectively.
In April 2017, the Carolina Digital Phone team will deploy 97 SIP trunks for Brunswick County Schools in North Carolina. The installation was given the green light after a highly successful test of 3 SIP trunks in February, which saved the school board over 50 percent vs. their current carrier. Staff were also impressed with the built-in data recovery and redundancy features that guarantee 99.99% uptime.
“Carolina Digital offers everything a customer deserves from their SIP service provider,” commented Michael Bullard, Systems Asset Analyst at Brunswick County Schools. “Quality, price, responsiveness and dependability are important to us as a customer and I can’t imagine any other service provider out performing them.”
In June 2017, the Carolina Digital Phone team will head to Georgia and deploy hosted cloud phone system for Evans County Schools. The system will also include additional POTS lines for alarms and cloud-based faxing. This is the second school system in the state of Georgia for Carolina Digital Phone, and will further strengthen their efforts to provide class leading cloud services to school systems neighboring states.
In separate but related news, Carolina Digital Phone also announced that in recent months it has renewed agreements with three other North Carolina school districts, including Roanoke Rapids Graded School District, Bertie County School District, and Currituck County School District, respectively.
“Over the past five years we have developed relationships in the K-12 market that now drive our commitment to servicing this sector,” commented Brant Yandell, Partner Manager at Carolina Digital Phone. “Saving school systems money to retain teaching jobs or free up funds for bettering programs for students is extremely rewarding.”
The E-Rate program allows eligible schools and libraries to receive funding of 20-90 percent for new and existing network and telecommunications services. E-Rate discounts are based on the percentage of students eligible to participate in the National School Lunch Program and the degree to which they may be considered urban or rural.
