• Historical Perspective     • Current PBX
  • Each phone/fax had its     • WAN Configuration
    own circuit                   • Not completed resulting in
                                    problems with:

                                      • Caller ID disabled

                               • These will be corrected
                                 with planned E-Rate
                                 funded upgrades
