Earlier this year, the Natural History Museum announced it was to move to an IP communications infrastructure to help its staff work more flexibly. According to an article in silicon.com Museum staff will be able to use their IP-based work phones at home, instead of using mobiles when working out of the office. South Kensington Museums group telecoms manager Bob Estcourt told silicon.com: "Basically this came about from the need to have people working offsite. We are migrating to IP across the museum anyway. We are moving forward with technology when we can if there is a cost benefit for us or for a work-life balance. We are a business and like any other we've got to be able to keep up with technology." He hopes to have at least 50 staff teleworking in the first year.
