The VoIP system is scheduled to undergo system upgrades in 2020, resulting in performance and security improvements for thousands of supported telephones. However, the next system upgrade will have a significant negative impact on customers who are still using unsupported models of VoIP telephones.
Communications were delivered to Financial Officers on January 6 to begin the process of addressing these needs. ENCS will work with coordinators in each area to replace, upgrade,or disconnect the unsupported devices.
Obsolete Device Failures Expected on July 1, 2020
Enterprise Network and Communication Services (ENCS) has completed an audit of installed telephones to determine the location of all unsupported VoIP telephone devices and is ready to replace, upgrade, or disconnect the unsupported phones. We’ll work with a contact of your choice and review the status of the unsupported devices installed in your area.
If you are interested in learning more, please review the VoIP Replacement Plan SharePoint site.

Visually access and manage your voicemail messages and greetings, reset your PIN, manage your phone’s speed dial programming and call forwarding, access real-time agent and queue statistics (for call-center supervisors), and more, all from the My.VoIP portal at:
