The University of Oslo benefits from the SIP-standard when upgrading to Vingtor-Stentofon Turbine SIP

We are proud to announce that the University of Oslo is upgrading its intercom system replacing old ending points with Vingtor-Stentofon Turbine SIP as gate phones.

The biggest university in Norway

The University of Oslo (UiO) has decided to replace their old analog intercom system with the IP Vingtor-Stentofon Turbine in SIP mode. Established in 1811 the University of Oslo is the oldest and biggest university in Norway. UiO is organized into eight faculties and it also includes The Natural History Museum, the Museum of Cultural History and the Museum of University and Science History. UiO has Norway’s biggest academic and research library, Universitetsbiblioteket.

Vingtor-Stentofon- outstanding SIP equipment

Previously the University of Oslo used a telephone central with analog gate phones. After an extensive upgrade they have changed to an Asteriks server, making the phone system IP-based. To complete the upgrade they will use the Vingtor-Stentofon  Turbine SIP as end points to the system. These gate phones talk standard SIP and can therefore be put into the university’s system that is open-source based. The SIP stands for Session Initiated Protocol and is an open standard that makes it easier to integrate the gate phones into the new system.  

− In UiO’s search for SIP gate phones and gate controls Zenitel stood out with a great design and the ability of water resistance. UiO’s previous gate phones could not take the moisture from the different seasons in Norway. This time we have high expectations and hope the robustness of Vingtor-Stentofon  Turbine master rain and snow in many years to come, said Rolf Arne Olaussen.

Olaussen is engineer at the University’s center for Information Technology (USIT). 

Making it easier to use the university’s properties

Vingtor-Stentofon Turbine SIP will be used as gate phones for all of UiO’s properties. The university has 7000 employees and 27 000 students that use the buildings on a daily basis. Additionally UiO has many visitors and people passing through the campus. The gate phones are used to call up a person who may permit the caller to enter the building or area. Using gate phones will make it easier to contact and find the right person and location.

Vingtor-Stentofon Turbine SIP will also be used as gate controls to control the incoming and outgoing traffic on The University of Oslo’s campus area. The university campus comprises of different buildings of lecture halls, labs, offices, libraries, cafes, cantinas, shops, one hair salon and the book store “Akademika”. The buildings get deliveries and supplies continually. The Turbine stations will make it easier to keep the traffic flowing smoothly through barriers and gates. As all external work and delivery have to pass through the gate control to keep a high security for everyone who uses UiO’s properties.
