ITS is preparing the campus phone system for migration from the VoIP system to Microsoft Teams cloud voice, the new cloud-based phone service that was announced previously on ITS News and by University Communications.

Calls to and from Cisco phones on the UNCG network will be intermittently unavailable between 5:30 a.m. and 7:30 a.m. on Thursday, December 17, 2020. Outages are expected to be very brief. 

Emergency lines that operate on the AT&T Centrex system such as fire alarms lines, elevator lines, area of rescue, and most blue towers will not be affected by this change and will continue to operate as normal.
