Update on Phone System Replacement Project

January 8, 2018

MIDDLEBURY, Vt. – The telephone system replacement project is continuing full steam ahead. As of the end of December, more than half of the office telephones on the Middlebury campus have been moved to the new Cisco telephone system.

According to Middlebury Information Technology Services, most faculty and staff have opted for a desk telephone but some have chosen to use a headset to place and receive calls from their office computers. Faculty and staff are enjoying the features of the Jabber software and we expect more people will choose to  go without a desk telephone. The Jabber soft phone client is available for download to all users.

The remaining office phones on the campus will be installed by the end of January. In February, ITS will turn its attention to transitioning the phones on the Monterey campus and Washington, D.C. office.

Any questions about the process should be addressed to telecom@middlebury.edu or call 802-443-5700.
