- Off-net long distance calling
Close Window

  • Complete and return this billing authorization form (Word Format) for long distance access*.

    * If you use the state's SCAN long distance network for phone calls then include your "DIS Agency Billing ID".
    * If you don't use SCAN, a new "DIS Agency Billing ID" number will be assigned.

    - This form can also be faxed to the K-20 Administration group.

  • The rates for long distance calls from the K-20 network are:
    • Off-Net Domestic - 12 cents per minute/per channel
    • Off-Net Canadian- 35 cents per minute/per channel
    • International (All Countries) - $1.40 per minute

  • The charge is calculated as follows: rate X number_of_minutes X number_of_channels (Example – The charge for a 384K call from Seattle to Texas for 30 minutes would be calculated as following: 30 minutes X $.12 X 6 channels = $21.60.)

- Does K-20 have a number I can call to test my video unit?
Close Window

The K-20 network operates several loopback numbers, which you can call to test your video conferencing unit. These numbers will connect you back to yourself via the MCUs to verify connectivity. The numbers are different depending on the type of call you're making:

IP (H.323)
0332222 – Codian
0334444 - Codian

Please note that the loopback numbers may be unavailable during peak times or already in use when you try a test. You can call K-20 MCU support at 888.934.5553 to verify whether or not the loopbacks are available.
