New campus voice mail system coming soon

OIT Communication Technologies (ComTech) will be deploying Cisco Unity Connection as the new campus voice mail system in late December or early next year.

Cisco Unity Connection will replace the aging Octel voice mail platform and consolidate both the Main Campus and the College of Veterinary Medicine’s voice mail systems on to one highly redundant, feature-rich platform. In addition to the traditional telephone interface, the new system will eventually offer campus users the ability to access their voice mail via the Web and e-mail clients.

ComTech is currently testing the system and collecting data from colleges and campus departments to map individual users to their associated telephone numbers and Unity IDs in preparation for the deployment. ComTech will contact campus voice mail users in advance of the deployment to provide instructions on how to set up their new campus voice mail boxes. More information will be available on the ComTech Web site soon.
