CATS department maintains telephony service for the faculty and staff for communication inside and outside GITAM for their regular official activities. GITAM traditionally used BSNL based analog phone lines, and it has a BSNL PBX in Visakhapatnam campus. To accommodate quick deployment and more management, GITAM also provides IP based telephony. The IP telephones are primarily meant for quick deployments like for events and special occasions. GITAM also provides long distance calling facility, and where necessary we augment the services with web based video conferencing tools such as skype.
SMS service is widely used at GITAM in various applications. GITAM sends student attendance, marks, emergency and regular notifications and many other communications rely on SMS service. CATS provide SMS services to all three campuses.
