Project Description

This project funds the in-house design and installation of necessary telecommunications hardware to migrate from land-line telephones at various Metra facilities to modern VoIP phone systems. Metra Telecommunications engineers will complete the necessary design, configuration, and installation of the new phones and system components, software upgrades, cyber security updates, and related components. This project will realize cost savings as Metra will be able to disconnect expensive phone lines and all project work will be completed by Metra forces.
