Reduce Copper Wire Phone Costs and Keep Your Campus Safe

Date: Wednesday, June 26, 2024 at 11am PT / 2pm ET

The safety of students, faculty, and staff is certainly a top priority for colleges and universities, and as costs rise, educational facilities also need to find a way to reduce costs to remain competitive. One area that many colleges and universities see as a fit for improving these items is by reducing the costs involved in maintaining their aging copper POTS lines. Common devices that these lines support include:

  • Blue light and public safety phones
  • Facility, burglar, and fire alarm panels
  • Elevator phones
  • Building entry systems
  • Fax machines

POTS lines are inherently confusing to maintain and are being phased out by phone carriers causing rates to increase and service to decline. Adding in complexities such as the value of copper rising and copper theft has recently added additional problems into this equation for many. How do colleges and universities prepare for long-term growth, provide a safe environment for all, and reduce costs with all of these challenges?

Register today to learn:

  • How copper wire infrastructure is being sunset at a rapid pace.
  • How the cost of copper is affecting the industry.
  • How the sunset and cost of copper are playing a part in increasing phone bills.
  • How to effectively audit copper lines to create a plan for moving forward.
  • A step-by-step process for modernizing critical business systems and reducing costs.

This free webinar is ideal for colleges, universities, and other educational facilities that are looking to reduce their phone costs and learn more about copper line replacement solutions for their critical life safety devices.
