Telecommunications: About Us
York University Telecommunications is responsible for all aspects of
design, operation and maintenance of the telephone system that supports
communication services at both York and Glendon campuses. This mandate
includes switchboard, voicemail, emergency and elevator phones, residential
service, pay phones, long distance and fax service.
Telecommunications also provides the facilities that
support security surveillance cameras, building monitoring systems and
residential entry systems.
York Telecom sets the communications standards for wiring, communication
closets, risers, etc. in all York buildings. It is required that York
departments consult with Telecommunications about required changes to
the infrastructure of the University's telephone system and cable plant.
Consultation is also necessary prior to installation of intercom systems,
telephone answering devices, and paging and radio equipment.
To prepare for the timely development of effective communications strategies,
York University Telecommunications also evaluates emerging trends in technologies
related to voice, data, video, radio, paging and imaging.
