What does the university’s change of telephony entail for me?
The university will switch its telephony provider from Telia to Telenor on Thursday 29 June 2023. This means that desk telephones will be removed and be replaced by a computer client – a telephone in your computer. The computer client is called Telenor One X and will be installed on all staff computers.
Telenor One X will install automatically on university-administered computers (PC and Mac). You can log in for the first time after we have changed operators. Staff who have privately administered computers can download the software from Telenor’s website. Your telephone number will remain the same.
“Despite the university being relatively young, we have seen fairly significant changes in technology, and now it’s time for telephony,” says Veronica Waldemarson, deputy director of Campus and ICT Services. “Physical phones are being replaced by computer software, so please contact your line manager if you need a physical telephone because of your work environment.”
If you have a desk phone
On Monday 19 June 2023, all staff received an email with information about how to log in to Telenor One X. This message included your password.
For incoming and outgoing calls you can use the same headset or speaker you use for online meetings. If you need a headset and do not already have one, order one using the form “Collect IT equipment in Infocenter” below “My page” on the employee web.
If you have a university mobile phone
If you have a mobile phone from university, you keep the same phone number. The only change is that you will need a new SIM card (a physical SIM card or eSIM). The new SIM cards were distributed to post boxes/pigeonholes in mid-June.
Mobile phone users can also use the Telenor One X computer client, on both the computer and on the mobile phone.
I am on holiday on 29 June – what do I do?
On Monday 19 June, all staff received an email with information about how to login and use the Telenor One X computer client. It does not matter if you are on leave on 29 June, just log in when you are back at work.
If you have a mobile phone – switch the SIM card on 29 June or when you are back from holiday.
