Education and Government
DSCI works with many schools and government organizations throughout the Northeast to create solutions to their evolving technology challenges.
Due to budget cuts and reductions in funding, you have to make every penny count.
Many of DSCI’s services are eligible for E-Rate funding through the USAC Schools & Libraries Program. Additionally, because DSCI is a qualified vendor on the Massachusetts State Contract ITT46 and MHEC Contract MC12-J04, we can offer substantial discounts through special contract pricing. What’s more, since our services are managed and delivered over the DSCI network and not on your premises, you’ll reduce the costs of maintaining and upgrading your hardware and infrastructure.
Provide Fast, Secure Internet Access
Your staff, faculty, and students exchange vast amounts of information with each other daily. They rely on you to provide a secure, reliable, high-capacity connection.
Our Metro Ethernet service is a simple, economical solution with a bandwidth that scales from 5 to 1,000 Mbps. Metro Ethernet can help you extend a Local Area Network, connect sites with a Wide Area Network, provide Internet access, or converge voice, video and data services over a single connection. Additionally, DSCI’s managed Hosted Secure Internet Gateway provides a high level of protection against network threats and attacks, and uses content filtering to ensure CIPA Compliance.
Connect With Mobile Users
Whether it’s across campus or across the state, your users are constantly on the move. You need a way to stay in touch with them.
Our UCx Hosted Communications Service allows a user to pair a desk phone with a mobile phone, so inbound calls will ring on both. And with presence and instant messaging features, you can easily see who’s available at any given moment.
Enable Emergency Response
In the event of an emergency, it’s critical that you still have the means to communicate with your students or constituents – they will be looking to you for information.
Thanks to the distributed nature of hosted communications, your telecom infrastructure can remain available in the event of a disaster or other emergency. If needed, inbound calls can be easily routed to an alternate location using SIP Proxy Gateway and Broadband Backup services. Additionally, our Call Alert Notification application will give you instant notification when one of your users dials 911 (or any other emergency number), giving you precious response time that you might not otherwise have.
