Besides, the architecture enables seamless integration of the users’ BYOD program which improves the effectiveness of business meetings while saving time and money.

In an instance, NWN assisted Chapel Hill-Carrboro Schools (CHCCS) one of two public school systems in Orange County, NC, with their communications solution. The client wanted to replace their existing Cisco Call Manager and Unity VoIP environment with on-premise hosted solutions. NWN Communications platform enabled the client to save on licensing costs and achieve desired outcomes. Additionally, the solution’s generation of voice gateway alerts notified the personnel during survivability failsafe for internet and when the communication access was down.
