New campus voice mail system coming March 2011

In March, OIT Communication Technologies (ComTech) will replace the aging campus Octel voice mail platform with Cisco Unity Connection.


The move will 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 Web and e-mail clients.


ComTech is currently testing the new 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.
