February 25, 2014 | The University of Virginia is getting new phones – about 20,000 of them. As noted in the recent email to employees from Pat Hogan, U.Va.'s executive vice president and chief operating officer, the current telephone system at U.Va. – most of which is now nearly two decades old – will soon be replaced with a more modern telephone system based on VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) technology, in partnership with a vendor named Broadsoft. Telephone line migration and phone replacement is set to begin on the academic side of the University in June, and on the Medical Center side in September. This phase of the project will take about 16 months. More
