Over the next several months, the campus telephone system will be upgraded to a Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) phone system. The campus voice solution is the Avaya Private Branch Exchange (PBX). During the migration, ITS and Facilities Services will coordinate with each department to understand their specific telephony needs and make changes as needed. ITS will then work with the vendor, Vox, to install the new Avaya VoIP phones, provide user training, and remove the current Nortel phones.
Here is a typical timeline of the migration.
- Two to three days before the migration, Vox will install the new Avaya VoIP phone, which can be used, but with no incoming calls. Your current Nortel phone will continue to work normally.
- Training are provided both prior to and after the cutover.
- Two days after the migration cutover takes place, your Nortel phone will no longer work.
These training resources cover the basic functionality of the equipment and the features available on the handsets.
