VoIP Implementation Update:
The conversion to the new VoIP telephones is now planned to start on Wednesday, September 3 and be completed by Friday, September 12. Unfortunately, the migration of numbers to AT&T to fully energize Georgia College’s new telephone system is moving much slower than anticipated. AT&T informed the Project Team last week that they need an additional 30 days to complete the number transfer. This is 30 days beyond the original planning estimate of early to mid-July.
While the numbers will be ready in August, knowing this is our collective busiest time, the migration date has been pushed to September. It would be difficult, at best, to subject the campus to the additional stress of changing telephone systems while also addressing the semester start-up workload. With the understanding that valuable desk space is being used for two phones, it is less intrusive than the alternative of an August implementation. DoIT will share the exact conversion date for your telephone number once the move date is established with AT&T.
The opportunity still exists for you to use the phones for on campus calls and to test the system design and configuration prior to the conversion.
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this delay causes.
