Voice Communications

SimRing Service Considered

IET-Communications Resources is investigating offering SimRing service to campus clients. This service rings a predefined list of local devices when a specified campus number is dialed. This will be particularly useful for clients who work in multiple locations, so they can be reached at any of those locations, or even on their cellular phone, by dialing a single campus number. With the advent of number portability, which allows users to move a phone number to any telephone-type communications device (wired phone in a different location, cell phone, PDA, etc.), demand for this type of feature may increase. (For more information about number portability, see the campus directive at http://directives.ucdavis.edu/2003/03-139.cfm.)
