telephone service - Microsoft Teams CallING

Starting in the fall 2021 UCF IT Telecommunications will begin to gradually migrate University of Central Florida faculty & staff from Skype for Business to Microsoft Teams. The upgrade is part of the effort to modernize the Universities communication technology and better meet the needs of those working, learning, and teaching remotely.

Microsoft Teams Calls is the digital phone solution for making and receiving calls. University phone lines will be moving to Teams Calls, featuring an internet based, mobile-first calling experience with the ability to call any one, from anywhere, at any time.

WHO CAN GET IT

All UCF departments, direct service organizations, and private vendors/companies that provide support services to the University. UCF entities and direct service organizations located on the Orlando campus, the regional campuses, the Central Florida Research Park, and other UCF colleges located on remote campuses (e.g., Rosen College, UCF Medical Campus at Lake Nona, etc.). Microsoft Teams calling requires an A5 licensed Office 365 account.

SERVICE CHARGE

Teams Voiceline Monthly Cost $29.50  – Setup Cost $70.00  (optional Voicemail $9.50 monthly)
A5 License Required. Deskphones not associated with a UCF NID will incure an additional Monthly Cost of $10.00

THE RIGHT DEVICE FOR YOU

There are a variety of equipment options that may be purchased through the university, including wireless and wired headsets with single and dual earpieces, conference style speakers, and by approval, Microsoft Teams-certified deskphones.

Sometimes, the best device is your own device. You can also connect with peers and colleagues through Microsoft Teams using any headset or personal device wherever your UCF Teams account is installed, for enhanced personal flexibility. Using a personal device is your choice, as well as your responsibility.
