Today, academic institutions must manage the constant tension between controlling costs and the need to deploy supporting technology of sufficient quality to attract high calibre teaching staff, and students.
Communications of the highest order are paramount, not just to support and enable world-class academic research and inter-institution collaboration, but for tuition, studying, enrolment and day-to-day administration too.
At Gamma we work with the education sector right across the UK to deliver a wide range of innovative and cost-saving communications solutions. Through our understanding of academic needs we have become a trusted adviser and supplier to many colleges and universities including Northumbria University, Robert Gordon University and Queen Mary University to name a few.

Our own national network is connected directly to Janet via private resilient links in both London and Manchester. This means our academic customers can cut costs and radically improve flexibility by migrating away from costly ISDN circuits and instead using their existing Janet connections to carry the latest technology Gamma SIP Trunking for voice calls.
We can also improve the experience for callers by helping you move away from costly 08 numbers and onto 01, 02 or 030 numbers. And we back that with sophisticated call control so people always get through to the right person, more quickly.
And with staff and students now expecting to be able to communicate while on the move or at home as well as on campus, our mobile, data and hosted telephony solutions can help you meet the challenge of flexible working.
We are proud to be suppliers on the Janet Telephony Purchasing Service Framework, enabling organisations to procure our calls, lines, SIP Trunking, Hosted telephony and mobile solutions without the hassle of going to full OJEU tender.
We can rationalise existing disparate network and telecoms estates, helping you make the most of existing budgets and investments while reducing your unpredictable, variable costs. We can go even further, moving you from a capital to an operational expenditure model by migrating away from expensive and inflexible technology such as ISDN and moving to our next generation SIP services or our hosted Horizon telephony platform.
Cost of ownership can be a hard sell to management. With our solutions you’ll always get complete, accurate billing and management information in real time. To guide on-the-spot decision making while providing positive proof points for the board. We provide tools like Inbound that can ensure business continuity, and provide irrefutable evidence of tangible improvement.
