Telephone services, as well as operator services, are provided by NCIC inmate phone service on a wholesale basis to serve inmates housed in jails. The special software is known as Inmate Call Engine or ICE and is specifically targeted to correctional facilities.
ICE is a centralized call switching and computing system, which connects the inmate phones over a VOIP network and not the less secure Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN). This is an important security distinction as many ITS’ connect the inmate phones to the PSTN through a local line.
