What Is VoIP?
VoIP phone systems boast greater flexibility, advanced features, ease of accessibility, advanced security, crystal-clear call quality, lower overall costs, and immense scalability.
They are a natural fit that serves best against the needs of school districts, government agencies, and businesses.
VoIP refers to voice over a network using Internet Protocol (IP). IP is the protocol, or ‘language’, that allows devices to talk to each other, whether it be across the internet or in the same building. VoIP systems turn your voice into a signal that can be sent over your internal network and/or over the internet, decoupling users from geographical limitations while allowing for richer call features at a more cost-effective price than you’ve ever experienced before. With Mitel VoIP solutions from Eastern DataComm, our customers can select their own deployment model of onsite, data center, cloud, or hybrid using customer-dedicated instance applications.
VoIP Benefits for Schools
Today’s schools need an efficient, cost-effective phone solution that optimizes their communication processes. Eastern DataComm equips schools nationwide with an integrated phone system that allows for improved communications within the school building, as well as an integrated emergency notification system, to alert everyone on the campus of an emerging threat or active lockdown. With our integrated system, you can contact first responders at the touch of a button.
Streamlining Daily School and District-Wide Communication
From confidential interoffice calls to on-campus emergencies, schools have needs that set them apart from businesses and municipalities. At Eastern DataComm, we’re experienced in working with schools and districts to identify and address these needs while delivering customized solutions that ensure crystal-clear efficient communication.
Integrating with Your Other Technology Solutions
From access control systems to paging systems, there are several different technology pieces that a school or district might already use. Our VoIP solutions integrate seamlessly with other safety and communications technologies and can be implemented to improve the clarity and efficiency with which you communicate daily.
Bringing Your Phone Systems into FCC Compliance
Recent federal law updates, specifically Ray Baum’s Act and Kari’s Law, have enhanced the requirements for multi-line phone system functionality.
Specifically, Ray Baum’s Act requires that multi-line phone systems send dispatchable locations along with “call back” numbers each time a 911 call is executed.
Kari’s Law requires that these phone systems allow users to dial 911 without entering a prefix and mandates that notification to another resource (like a school security office, for example) is delivered whenever a 911 call is made.
You can learn more about these new requirements here.
And, when you choose to work with Eastern DataComm, you’ll experience the peace of mind that comes with knowing that your Mitel VoIP phone system is FCC-compliant.
Supporting Effective, Efficient Emergency Notification and Response
In an emergency, time is of the essence and can mean the difference between safety and tragedy. That’s why, at Eastern DataComm, we ensure that our VoIP systems integrate with our Lockdown and Emergency Notification System (LENS + OPTICS). By dialing a code on your VoIP phone, you can initiate a lockdown, shelter-in-place, or other emergency protocol within seconds of recognizing an active threat on your campus. The result is a fast, effective approach to urgent situations like an active shooter, intruders, and emergency weather conditions.
Comprehensive Notifications and Ease of Use by Design
With Mitel’s revolutionary app, aptly named ‘Revolution’, you’ll have access to an array of communication solutions that help address your routine and mass communication needs. The application is easy to use by design. It allows users to access all features from one simple yet powerful platform.

VoIP Systems That Meet the Latest Federal Regulations
In light of two recent federal laws strengthening the effectiveness of emergency calls, many school districts, businesses, and municipalities are taking a more critical look at their multiline telephone systems.
Kari’s Law is a Federal Communications Commission regulation that impacts multi-line telephone communications and requires such systems to allow users to dial 911 without entering a prefix. In addition, the law requires that notification to other resources is completed when the 911 call is made.
When a 911 call is made from one of our VoIP phone solutions, it automatically alerts emergency responders and shares the location of the call. The system allows for in-the-moment communication and conferencing among crisis managers and emergency personnel as well. So, from the initiation of an emergency call, everyone is on the same page.
RAY BAUM’S ACT requires all multi-line phone systems to send a dispatchable location along with a “call back” number each time a 911 call is made. The law is designed to help first responders understand the precise location to which they should send resources and how they can best respond to that particular emergency.
Our Mitel systems are compliant with this legislation. They swiftly and efficiently deliver vital information regarding the exact point for response to crisis managers. This dispatchable location data not only allows you to maintain FCC compliance, but it can also save lives.
Eastern DataComm’s Lockdown and Emergency Notification System (LENS) integrates with Mitel’s industry-leading Mitel Revolution to address emergency notification and communication challenges while complying with these requirements.
Both MiVoice Business and Mitel Revolution meet these federal requirements and can integrate with other aspects of your business’s technology infrastructure and emergency response notification system.
