UITS is pleased to announce that Voice over IP (VoIP), brought to you by Office of the CIO, was deployed at KSU! VoIP transmits telephone calls over the Internet and replaces the current phone system that has been used at KSU for many years. Every telephone on campus is replaced with an IP telephone and a new phone number. The IP phones give us new functionality and features. Some examples are:

  • Caller ID
  • Call Waiting
  • Speed Dialing
  • Programmable Function Keys

The new phone numbers ALL carry the same area code and first three numbers, followed by your current extension. The area code is 470 and the first three numbers are KSU (578). So, if your current extension is 1234, then your phone number is: (470) KSU-1234. We continue to use four-digit dialing for on-campus calls.
