Southern Bell officials said earlier this week the new $12
million computerized switching system will make service
more accurate and reliable, although it may seem confusing
to students and area residents.
"We've had a 100 percent replacement of all switching
equipment," Southern Dell District Manager Mike Carson said.
"We changed 1930 vintage electronic mechanical equip
ment to the electronic switching system (ESS)," Carson said.
"We took 30,000 lines connected to the Rosemary and Man
ning Street buildings and reconnected them to the new switch
"We began engineering the new office (on Rosemary Street)
in 1977' Carson said. "Normally, with electronic switching it
takes five years to the cutover time. We did it in less than four
Carson said the University phone system changed to ah ESS
The biggest change under Centrex is direct dialing, said
Richard Hall, UNC Telecommunications Analyst. "In the
past, you had to dial 125 to dial direct Now, you dial 1, the
area code and the number." .
Hall listed additional changes: within the Centrex system,
dial only the last five digits of the number; calling from a
Centrex number to a number outside the system, dial 9, all
seven digits; all campus numbers beginning with 933- have
been changed to 962-, with the exception of the Carolina Inn
and residence hall numbers. In addition, &-. numberrs re
main .the same. To reach a residence hall, you must dial all
Hall cited better service, the absence of an access code,
and additional options such as touch-tone, call forwarding,
and speed dialing as reasons the University elected to go
with the Centrex system.
"The additional features are up to each individual student
to decide on," Hall said. "If a student chooses an option, he
also elects to pay the price."
Iri addition,- off-campus, the access code has been elimi
nated and all 933- numbers remain the same.
"I think that keeping all off-campus 933- numbers the
same is confusing to a lot of people," Carson said. However,
few people will encounter wrong numbers and calls go
through much faster with the new system."

"The defense fund will continue to fight North
Carolina's so-called desegregation plan," Rauh
said. "Mr. Friday thinks the fight will be over when
Dupree signs the decree it will be just the
beginning." ( .
Justice department attorneys said in their doc
ument that the settlement is "fair, reasonable and
If he signs it, Dupree would have jurisdiction
over the decree until Dec. 31, 1988, but the terms
of the agreement would expire Dec. 31, 19S6.
The UNC system would control the system and
would submit an annual report to Dupree and to
the U.S. Department of Education's Office for
Dupree ruled in June, 1979, that the federal
government could withhold about $100 million
from UNC pending the outcome of administrative
hearings concerning the case in Washington.
