Each of the participants sees at least two or three others on his or her monitor, with the person speaking always showing in the upper left-hand corner, said Ric Simmons of LSU's Office of Telecommunications."You can see everybody on the screen like you do in Hollywood Squares," he said.

Students, faculty, staff and administrators will all be able to schedule time.The MCU can be used for anything a conference call can be used for.
LSU is not purchasing any cameras, only the MCU.It will be up to users to provide their own cameras."For years you've been able to get cheap webcams that have very poor resolution and poor voice quality.
It's rare that we have a network outage now and the quality of data transfer is better," Simmons said.
Because any two people can connect directly over the Internet, the MCU will be used strictly for allowing more than two people to communicate at the same time.
The unit has been delivered to campus and should be installed by the end of next week, Simmons said.It will still need installation and testing of the software that will allow the scheduling, but the whole thing should be ready to go by the end of July, he said.
"As technology gets upgraded over time, it's inevitable that everybody will have this.

I definitely have that fear, says Rick Simmons, assistant director of telecom at Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge, a 10-year voice veteran.To move up in his organization - which consolodated voice and data operation 10 years ago - Simmons is about to pursue a master's degree in IS, focused on database management, networking and Web design.i will definitely continue with telecom - as long as they have it..

That seems to be the consensus.I would very much like to get some formal training in voice-over-IP, notes Jim Hartzel, senior telecom analyst at TRW in McLean, CA.With the ever growing demand for bandwidth, this technology will be a standard in the not-too-distant future, and we need to be prepared..
