Voice Over IP Telephone System Installed

Lincoln University has recently installed a Cisco CallManager-based telephone system that will eventually be the main telephone system for all sites. The new system also includes UNITY, a replacement for our aging voicemail system. Transition to the Cisco system will occur through 2013 as we phase out our NEC telephone system, which has been in place, with various upgrades, since 1998. Our plans for the near- and medium-terms are for University Hall and Ware Center to be the first buildings served by the new system, followed by the Student Union Building, the new Science Building, the International Cultural Center, and as funding allows, all other renovated buildings and existing academic and administrative buildings. A web page with links to tutorial and explanatory material has been created for new users of the Cisco phone system. (updated 02.28.2012)

Lincoln University Intranet Site Planned

An Intranet site for university employees is being constructed. An "intranet" is a network "within" (as opposed to an internet, which is a network "among"). The phrase is used to describe network facilities oriented toward use by employees rather than customers. The Lincoln University Intranet will include breaking news, important announcements, resources and links for faculty and staff. Please check the site often, and let the Web Team know of any features you'd like to see included. (updated 08.08.2007)
