Elkhorn Public Schools District has deployed OmniPCX Enterprise for a centralized IP phone system.


  • Rapidly expanding school district strains resources; internal communications critical for efficiency
  • Standalone phone systems at each school create operational and user complexity, adding cost
  • No phone coverage in classrooms: concerns about efficiency and safety




  • Reducing monthly costs, replacing many plain old telephone service (POTS) lines
  • Having a phone in every classroom gives peace of mind to all the administrators-faculty-parents.
  • Centralized phone system replaces silos, unifying the school district regardless of what building you are in

"After presentations by multiple vendors, the Elkhorn Public Schools chose to partner with Alcatel-Lucent. As the district moved to a VOIP system, we felt that they provided the most cost-effective solution for our growing district. Our partnership with Alcatel-Lucent has been excellent. We are still discovering all the things this system can provide to meet our needs, as we continually add buildings in our growing district."
