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.
