Planning a Move or an Upgrade
Coordinating an equipment move or upgrade (and sometimes both!) for a large group
of people can be a daunting task.
ISC Networking and Telecommunications
recommends that you contact our Service Desk to assist with large moves of your data, voice,
and video equipment. Our Project Leaders are available
to guide you through the move and are ready to offer suggestions if you would like service upgrades in your new location.
Review All Communication Networks Needs
Meet with an N&T Project Leader
Our project leaders will work with you to determine
not only your voice service needs, but also your data and video service networking
your first meeting by gathering together basic information about your move:
- What is the lead time?
- Is your move temporary or permanent?
- Is your
department or organization expanding or merging with another group?
- What equipment does your group currently use,
is each set located?
- Will your service and equipment needs
will change once you move?
- What equipment will you need in your new location,
and where will each set be located within the office space?
- N&T recommends PennNet Phone service for all new telephone installations. We
do acknowledge that there are times when traditional service may be the best
service for specific business functions. N&T can help you determine
which phone service best fits your needs.
- Old equipment
such as Eagle and Extrom phones can not be relocated. If your group currently
uses this type of equipment, you will need to choose new phone equipment.
Organize Your Voice Equipment Needs
It may help for you to develop a spreadsheet with voice service and equipment
information specific to each person who is moving. Set up columns that record:
- User first and last names
- Phone numbers they use
- Current phone location (bldg and room number)
- Current type of phone
- Intercom number (if used)
- Whether voicemail service is used
Also set up columns for new equipment and new location information. Details
- New equipment location
- Whether a user will require new voicemail service
- What the new wall outlet number will be
- What type of phone will be used in the new location
- Whether the phone outlet will also require a data or video port
- Which budget code will support the new equipment and the new outlet's monthly
You will also need to fill out a keysheet
(set diagrams on which you assign features and phone lines to particular buttons) for each multiline phone set.
