Overview The new system should be fully live & receiving incoming calls on Wednesday morning, August 13 th. The new Cisco system runs on the data network. The new phones plug into data jacks and end users plug their computers into the back of the phones. Telephone moves can be done by end users. If moving to an office that has a phone in it already, please return that phone to ITS. Extension numbers, fax and telephone numbers have NOT changed. The University has decided not to implement authorization codes for long distance calling. All users with voice mail must initialize their new mailbox. The default voicemail PIN is 1234. Messages in the current voice mail system cannot be moved to the new system. It is recommended that old messages are deleted. Old phones will be collected in late August/September. Verify the name on your phone by calling yourself or someone else.
