Services Provided: Comprehensive Study for Moving from a GTA Centrex to a a premise-based service
Project Profile: City of Savannah, Georgia
The City of Savannah, GA was interested in viable options for replacing their telephone system and was interested in making a move from a GTA Centrex service to a premise-based solution.
Elert & Associates completed a study and provided the City with a comprehensive report that outlined options, including expected costs for this move.
As part of the study, Elert & Associates conducted individual and departmental interviews and also reviewed and evaluated the City's existing voice and data networks, inter- and intra-building cable infrastructure, and GTA billing. From this report, the City elected to move forward with a premise-based VoIP telephone system to include all new data electronics and a new intra-building cable infrastructure that included CAT 6 cable with a fiber backbone.
Elert & Associates then assisted the City with the development of detailed specifications for all three components, evaluation of respondent proposals, vendor capabilities and selection, and Phase I implementation project oversight.
The overall project consisted of over 60 City locations and approximately 1,200 total telephones.
