During the maintenance window, CCS will be replacing temporary equipment with equipment made available during the April T1 Maintenance Window. In addition, some tasks not completed during the April T1 maintenance window will also be completed. As the new equipment is brought online, telephones will re-register, however, calls in progress will not be interrupted during this process.

NB: While no interruption in service is expected for most telephone operations as a result of this second maintenance activity, there are expected interruptions in telephone service due to the Campus Virtual Switching System (VSS) Migration as described above.
