Ouch!  I would never hand over a full open phone to any employee! Phone
accounts can be locked down to local only and even call groups.

Yea the on demand stuff sure. Let me clarify. VOIP audio links Full time
dedicated just like a control link loop on wire line. I would do some VOIP
to the DC/TONE remote on bases at each of his sites. Or do it the old way
and get some tie lines or dedicate a phone line. but now we are adding
recurring costs.

We use some VOIP switches at work from SONUS. Seems to do very well, you
would not know your were voip. But the IP path is dedicated backbone for
VOIP. :) many ds3's!
