Office Telephones or Teams Phones


Bowdoin College's telephone system is different than traditional, residential telephones. The phones are IP phones which means that they are Ethernet based and plug in to regular network wall ports rather than a traditional telephone jack. These phones connect to the network to get their data as well as their power.
