IVN & Interactive Classroom Support

Service Description

The primary purpose of the Southern Miss Interactive Classroom is to share academic courses between the Hattiesburg campus and regional Southern Miss campuses. In this way, the University increases the availability of programs and faculty that were previously available to only one campus. Our Videoconferencing systems are standards based. We connect utilizing SIP or H.323 protocols. Each unit is capable of handling calls up to 1.5mbps.
