Office Phones

We currently support Avaya legacy PBX system and have begun transitioning the campus to Cisco VoIP voice service.

The Cisco VoIP phone transmits calls over the same data network that your computer uses. Combining voice and data over the same network means that you have more control over your phone and its features.
