Over the next few months, ITS teams will be doing surveys and installing new phones next to existing phones throughout the school. In mid-November, service will be switched from the old phones to the new phones, at which time the old phones will be removed. Throughout the process, we will continue to provide frequent updates on the status of phone surveys and installations in SOM buildings. We will also be providing online documentation and training on the new phones.
Phone Installation Schedule
ITS CommTech Transport Operations will begin phone installations in the following buildings (and in the sequence shown) in the date range listed below. Team members will be issued School of Medicine ID badges and should prominently display them. The newly installed phones will be installed side-by-side with the existing phones, however, they will not be operational until service is switched in mid-November. It is extremely important for the new phones to remain connected to the correct, original data port. The phones must be connected to ensure a successful transition so please do not move the new phones once they are installed next to your existing phone.
Installation Dates: July 3 - July 31
- Bondurant Hall
- AHEC Building (Health Affairs Bookstore)
