Developing IP Telephony Laboratory and Curriculum with Private Cloud Computing

  • Internet Protocol (IP) Telephony is growing rapidly in the telecommunication industry. Since IP Telephony curriculum is very new to IT education and also because of the high cost of laboratory equipment, there are very few universities that offer IP Telephony courses. The documentation on IP Telephony laboratory and curriculum is also under-developed. To meet the challenges of this new technology and the needs of IT students, in this paper, we explore how an IT Telephony laboratory can be built upon within the private cloud to serve the class. We believe the lectures and hands-on experience provided by an IP Telephony course help the students gain the knowledge and skills in the areas of configuring an IP Telephony system. This research can serve as a reference guide for other IT educators who want to deploy IP Telephony laboratory and curriculum in their institutions.
