It is requested that Council approve the purchase of telephone equipment and licensing required for SIP Voice upgrade, from CPAK Technology Solutions (LaGrange, Ga), in the amount of $38,849.00. This purchase will be accomplished via Georgia statewide contract #99999-SPD-T20120501-0006.
This equipment and licensing is required for the final phase of the SIP project. The SIP project is moving the old VoIP telephone system to a new system, as the old system is being phased out by our vendor, AT&T. The equipment is needed in order is to replace telephones, conference phones and fix fax and analog lines. Additionally, the licensing is required for the new software. The PRI (old VoIP) was copper lines that come into the building. The SIP (new VoIP) is Internet based phones. Since PRI lines are being phased out, CCG needs this equipment in order for systems to continue to function properly.
