PULLMAN – Analog lines that support critical operations, emergency and life safety are being identified so that they can continue to alert the WSU Pullman community.
WSU is updating the Pullman campus telephone system. While many features will be available on the new VoIP desk phones, there are analog devices on campus that will need continued support.
Such systems typically are managed and maintained centrally by Facilities Operations (FacOps) in conjunction with Information Technology Services (ITS). However, there still may be some departmental or research areas that have their own alarm or alerting systems that call out on analog phone lines.
ITS and FacOps are working to identify these systems across the Pullman campus. Examples of these systems include:
· security alarms
· panic alarms
· freezer alarms
· radio/telephone interfaces
· paging systems
Identifying these departmentally supported systems is critical. This will allow ITS and FacOps to identify and better support departmentally operated critical alarm circuits.
If you or your unit/department have any departmentally managed analog services, please provide the following information to John Daleo at jfdsac@wsu.edu by April 25:
· Contact information for responsible person: name, phone number and email address
· Building/room where alarm/sensor/equipment is located
· Jack number and phone number of the analog service
For questions about these alarms or alert systems managed by departmental staff, please contact John Daleo at 335-0530 or jfdsac@wsu.edu.
