The vendor issue that impacted University telephone service yesterday is not currently affecting the University’s phone system. Calls to and from external phone numbers are functioning normally at this time. We are continuing to monitor the situation, and the cause of the issue is still actively being investigated. If you experience a reoccurrence of this issue, please contact the Technology Help Desk at 412-624-HELP [4357] to report it.

Outbound calls from University phones to external numbers are now available. An issue affecting Windstream, one of the University’s telephone service providers, continues to affect inbound calls to the University. The vendor is continuing to work to resolve the problem.

A vendor issue is intermittently affecting calls to and from external telephone numbers. Internal calls (for example, calls from one campus extension to another) are not affected. The vendor is aware of the issue and is working to restore service as quickly as possible. Updates will be posted as they become available.
