You Can Move Up To The Cloud . . .

Whether you’re considering deploying a new communications or contact center system or upgrading an existing one, you probably have a number of questions about Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) vs. other more traditional technologies and what to expect if you deploy a cloud solution.


Premises-based systems require a significant up-front investment and can limit an organization’s flexibility to easily adopt new features, functionality, or process improvements. For those businesses with multiple locations, on-premises systems add the complexity of requiring a PBX at each location.


UCaaS, on the other hand, enables organizations to achieve unprecedented productivity and business benefits. When services are delivered from the cloud, you can:

  • Quickly and easily scale your communications up or down

  • Provide the tools your organization needs to stay competitive without having a major impact on your budget - through one low monthly payment

  • Implement an enterprise-grade phone system with fully integrated collaboration tools such as instant messaging, web conferencing, file sharing, and more.

UNIVERGE BLUE & Ext. 988 For Account Administrators - PDF

The FCC has designated 988 as the new three-digit dialing code that will route callers to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. While some areas may be currently able to connect to the Lifeline by dialing 988, this dialing code will be available to everyone across the United States starting on July 16, 2022.


The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is now the 988 Suicide and Crisis Lifeline.


UNIVERGE BLUE account administrators may recognize extension 988 is used in UNIVERGE BLUE Connect as one of the ten default call park extensions. Unless you have modified your default Call Park extensions to a different extension range, then your account will lose the ability to continue using this extension for parking phone calls on July 12th, 2022.


What do you need to do?

  • Notify all UNIVERGE BLUE users that dialing extension 988 will connect them to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline and will no longer pick up a parked call.

  • Extension 988 will automatically be removed from your account on the effective date of July 12th, 2022.

  • If your account also has Device Linekey settings set to monitor calls parked on extension 988 – these Linekey settings will also be cleared on July 12th, 2022.
