1. Systems Update

2. Videoconferencing Testing

Over the past 2 months Anne, Nick, Chris, Matt, Andrew and Rich as well as others throughout the library system have been testing the teleconferencing equipment. Currently, RUL has 4 Tandberg, 5 Polycom and 1 Polycom PBX endpoints and there was some concern that one of the problems could be the use of equipment from varying manufacturers, a point which has still yet to be determined for certain. Bob Gerdes of OIT and Pete Mattaliano from Continuing Education and Outreach also participated and lent their expertise to the testing scenarios.

The testing was done in the hopes of resolving some of the issues that users have been confronted with such as poor audio, dropped connections, inabilities to connect to certain cites, and poor data transfer. The testing included connecting all endpoint through the RU MCU as well as the NJEdge MCU as well as connecting Polycom to Polycom, Tandberg to Tandberg end points and Polycom to Tandberg endpoints to see if a distinction in quality of connection could be made based on manufacturer.

3. RULink/Mail Meme

Darryl discussed how he has switched his mail server from RCI to RULink and is enjoying a larger default quota of storage space. It was decided that switching to RU Link mail would be left to the discretion of the user and not imposed by the group.

4. New/Old Business

5. Future Meeting Dates

The next meeting is scheduled for March 21
