To enable remote work during COVID-19 isolations, ITS is providing the Bria Enterprise softphone client enabling use of your UT phone number on iPhone and Android compatible smart phones. Note, the Information Security Office does not recommend use of this client for security sensitive calls (e.g., HIPAA) because connections are not currently encrypted.
After the university resumes normal operations, instructions will be provided to units who may wish to purchase this service on an ongoing basis (this is a commercially licensed product).
In order to request your voice service be provisioned to use the soft client please click the link here or below (Soft Client Request for UT VoIP)
You will need to have an existing UT phone number, and already have that number listed as your Work Contact Information primary phone number in Workday:
To update in Workday:
Workday —> Personal Information —> Contact Information —> Work Contact Information —> Primary Phone (landline)
Updates from Workday take an extra day to propagate if you update that number.
Special lines (group or shared lines, masked lines, UCD lines, etc) will require a special request to email@example.com.
You will be asked to provide a contact email address, to acknowledge that there are location tracking limitations with regards to making E911 Calls with the soft client, and the primary location you expect to use the client from when working remotely.
