Claremont University Telephony Project

Dear Faculty

As part of the Claremont University Telephony project, Scripps has purchased replacement phones for all faculty and staff who still have the older-model, NEC Dterm phones. The Scripps IT Department will be deploying these new phones to faculty over Fall Break.

You can discover more about the New Cisco VoIP Telephone and Voicemail Systems by going to: Cisco VoIP Training Guides

What will NOT change:

  • Your Voicemail Pin Number will stay the same as it is now.

However here are just a few of the new features you can expect:

  • Color Display – with access to college-wide directory and programmable favorite number buttons.
  • Conference Calls – with multiple callers Call Forwarding, & Holding, so you never miss an important call
  • Speaker Phone for hands free calling.

Scripps IT will be working with your Admins prior to the Fall Break to ensure that the exchange goes smoothly and will not hinder you in anyway. When IT sets up your new phone, we will leave a printed copy of the Quick Start User Guide

If you have questions about the phones please contact Scripps IT @

Thank you,

Scripps College IT Department
