It also adds encryption capabilities to RRISD’s wireless network, protecting the privacy and confidentiality of information you transmit using the WiFi network.

Phone Services

Most telephones use Avaya VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol). VoIP provides traditional telephone service, as well as many additional features, by using the computer data network instead of a traditional phone line. This saves the School District money, and helps to provide many advanced calling and collaboration features that the former analog phone system lacked.
