How much will it cost? –
Telecommunications and Network Services will be charging for the cost of the phone and the basic materials. No labor will be charged for a phone upgrade from the current PBX system to the VOIP system.
Cisco Jabber is also an option for many departments who need to have the flexibility of a VoIP system but cannot afford to do a full phone system upgrade yet. The Jabber platform allows your mobile device, laptop or computer to be an extension of your work phone. You can receive and make calls from your UVM extension when using the Jabber app on your device. A physical desk phone is no longer required. Your cell phone will continue to work with your normal phone number as well.
In order to use Jabber, the department needs to convert to VoIP. UVM Telcom will need to do a review of the department’s location on campus as there needs to be adequate wiring or wireless signal for the system to work. There will still be a $50.00 per month charge for the use and maintenance of the UVM phone number and system. Please contact us at 656-8888 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
