        Need for New Campus
        Communications Services
 Voice was once revenue-generating for
  many schools; no longer
 Users have adopted consumer services
  to meet personal / profession needs
  • Cellular
  • Consumer IM&P (e.g. AIM, YIM, MSN)
  • Consumer VoIP (e.g. Skype, FWD)
 How can universities develop services to:
  •   Recapture these customers?
  •   Enhance the campus life experience?
  •   Facilitate collaborative research?
  •   Improve productivity?

       VSAC

 Charter: Would it make sense for Internet2
  to provide voice services to its membership?
 Caveat #1: Group did not conduct an overall
  program review of Internet2's voice and
  integrated communications R&D efforts (e.g.
  NG911, SIP.edu, PIC rich presence)
 Caveat #2: Group did not do a deep-dive on
  policy. Focus was instead on the business
  case and on technology strategy
