Voice over Internet Protocol at Space Telescope Science Institute
What is VoIP? What will be VoIP services will be offered at STScI? – Basic VoIP Features (see user and administrative features and benefits) – Voicemail – Soft Phone (Cisco Jabber for Macs and Windows laptops) and Mobility ( iPhones, iPads, Androids and BlackBerrys) Scalability of STScI VoIP infrastructure
What is Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) Analog Digital Signal Cisco Call Manager Digital Signal Analog
Summary of user features for Cisco VoIP Call connection Impromptu audio conference (up to 6 internal participants) Caller ID (at this time only for Internal calls) Hands free, full duplex Speaker phone Headset (uses RJ11 type connector) Message Waiting Indicator (MWI) Hold Transfer

You can provide message notification for new messages through devices such as Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) text, pagers, and phone destinations. You can use your desktop telephone to manage, listen or record messages
Summary of features using Ciscos Jabber application Use a single, intuitive interface for instant messaging with individuals and groups, IP telephony, visual voicemail, voice and web conferencing, desktop sharing1, communication history, and integrated directories. Presence (if you are online or Do Not Disturb) View real-time availability of co-workers and colleagues within and outside the enterprise network. Exchange and display presence availability information and instant messages with other Cisco Jabber users, Cisco Unified Personal Communicator, Cisco WebEx Connect®, Microsoft Office Communicator and Lync, IBM Lotus Sametime, AOL, GoogleTalk, and many other XMPP-compatible clients. Exchange presence information with mobile handsets using Cisco Jabber or third-party XMPP-compatible clients. Display customized availability messages. Your status is updated automatically when you are in a Cisco WebEx meeting or sharing an application.
What does the user interface for Cisco Jabber look like
Call manager server pair will support up to 10,000 subscribers. Unity server (voicemail) can support up to 15000 users and a maximum of 250,000 users per clusters. Maximum number of subscribers for Cisco Call Manager cluster can support up to 30,000 users. Cisco IP Telephony solution can support multiple Call Manager clusters. Adding services is accomplished by adding more application servers for example if we wanted to provision Cisco Mobile Communicator as a service. We would add the application server to our voice network. Below is the features of Cisco mobility. Cisco has delivered Unified Communications in modular architecture, as services are needed the can be added to the overall Unified Communication architecture. In the future we may use external Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) trunks instead of connecting to the public telephone network. This will help reduce our cost for external call and long distance calls. Scalability of STScI VoIP Infrastructure
