About VOIP

The Temerty Faculty of Medicine uses the University's Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP) solution.

Handsets  

It is our STRONG recommendation that you purchase a phone handset for each VOIP phone line your unit orders. A VOIP phone handset eliminates the need for potentially costly computer support technicians in the rare cases where VOIP may fail to operate.  While there is an upfront expense associated with the phone handsets, the typical payback for this upfront expense is less than 2 years (based on the end state cost of the premium VOIP package and the cost of a Bell Centrex line with voicemail).

Remote Access

For remote access to your work phone, you can bring your VOIP work phone home and connect it to your network (you'll need a network cable and don't forget to bring the power adapter and cord for your phone).  Or, you can download and install the VOIP client on a mobile device or personal computer. See the link to downloads on the left.
