Navigating VoIP Workflows
With analog phone service, ITS owns all parts of the workflow process. As a result, ITS has greater control and ability in determining turnaround times. For Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) lines, ITS works in conjunction with your department's Technical Support Contact (TSC).
Since VoIP responsibilities fall under two departments, workflow processes were agreed upon to provide you with expectations on turnaround rates. Use the workflow timelines below when planning your VoIP requests.
See the VoIP Desksets page for information on why VoIP is required for some locations.
