Migration Process

Several weeks in advance

LTS will reach out to department heads and managers several weeks in advance of the planned migration. We will ask that you identify a designated coordinator for your department to work with us to review phone models and features and sign off final approval of both. We expect this process to be quick and smooth since most departments participated in an overall telephone line audit starting in late 2016.

2-3 days prior to cutover

Just prior to the migration date, LTS will deliver phones to the designated department coordinator, who will distribute them to end users.

On the migration date

End users will follow step by step instructions to plug their new phones into a network connection, and notify LTS when this is complete. LTS will then perform the software changes required to move the extension from the old system to the new, and will place a test call to verify successful migration.

After the migration date

LTS will collect the old phones from the department coordinator for recycling.
