The West Texas A&M University telecommunications system is purely Voice over IP (VOIP) and utilizes Cisco Call Manager. The network connects 42 buildings at the Canyon Campus, including 12 residence halls, and has over 1900 telecommunication devices attached. We also provide service to the Amarillo Center(Chase Building), Enterprise Network and Small Business Development Center in Amarillo.
The Telecommunications Services department provides other core functions including telecommunications and data network MACs (Moves, Adds, and Changes). Additionally, we provide 911 connection services to the University Police Department for emergency notification.
