Softphone / UC-Client

All employees have the option to migrate their personal phone numbers themselves via the Phone Control Center or the IT Shop to the Softphone (UC) solution.


Telephone Migration to Softphone (UC)

The Softphone (UC) is based on the product “OpenScape UC” from Unify, the supplier of our previous telephony solution. From the end of February 2023, all new employees will be equipped only with the Softphone (UC) and no more hardphones will be installed.

In addition to the rollout of the UC Web Client on the workstation computer, the migration also includes the removal of the hardphone on the workstation.


In order to be able to use the new service, you have to log in to the Phone Control Center and start the migration yourself.

Important: The Phone Control Center is only available within the ETH network or via VPN!
