Certain locations should have hard-wired landlines so that an internet attack such as a denial of service assault will not results in an outage.  That said, the only location I know that required landlines was the elevators – the other phones are all VOIP.  An infirmary or Fire Station or …. might have to think about these issues but probably not a teaching laboratory.

We are designing lab space and have run into the question of a hard wired phone? How many out there are still doing this? Would you recommend it? Suggestions and ideas are welcome.
