deployment project is on hold
As a result
of the current SaskTel strike, at this time all IBC phone deployments will be
deferred. The project team has no way of knowing how long the strike will last
and when we will be able to start with deployments again which puts all the
current start dates/schedule at risk. Once we know when SaskTel employees will
be back to work we will follow up with revised deployment timelines.
Central Services is working in partnership with SaskTel to deploy a new phone system for government to replace the current Centrex VoIP (IP) system. Government’s existing Centrex IP phones and system are end-of-life and no longer supported by the manufacturer. The new Integrated Business Communications (IBC) service will roll out across government over several months and will be deployed on a building-by-building basis.
A new phone system is being deployed to replace government’s current Centrex IP system. Information about the new Integrated Business Communications (IBC) service being deployed during the coming month can be found here.
The IBC phone system offers improved features and functionality to support employee's daily business needs and operations beyond just making and receiving calls. Information about how to use the phone can be found here.
The list of buildings being transitioned can be found here.
