Project Description

In May 2018, UBIT started a two-year project to replace most campus phones, which are nearly the end of their support from Cisco.

UBIT will work directly with distributed IT support staff to determine the right replacement option and previous phone configurations will be preserved.

Use the schedule on this page to learn when the phone replacements are coming to your area, and what to expect.
