Phone System Upgrade


In 2016 we started installing a new, network-based phone system. In addition to receiving a desk phone, you will soon be able to use an app called Jabber to conduct secure, fully-encrypted conversations using your Brown telephone number from your smartphone, tablet, or computer over any internet connection.
