New telephone system for courts

Published: Friday | March 23, 2012 Comments 0

THE COURT of Appeal and the Supreme Court are to benefit from a new telephone system.

The system, which has been implemented by the Court Management Service, is a Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP) Telephony Solution. The main features of the VOIP solution includes: a reduced rate on calls to other courts, and calls from Digicel mobile phones to both courts will be free of cost.

The system will first be installed in the Court of Appeal and Supreme Court and later extended to other courts. When implemented across all courts, the VOIP solution should result in a significant reduction in telephone costs for the courts.

The solution should also resolve the challenges the Supreme Court has previously faced with a damaged and old switchboard. The new switchboard numbers are: 665-2100 for the Supreme Court and 665-3530 for the Court of Appeal.

The old switchboard number of 922-8300 remain in effect.
