Information Technology Services no longer provide telephone headset rentals, sales, installation, repair or warranty service. Historically, telephone headsets had to be specifically selected based on the telephone set and were available primarily from the telephone vendors. This is no longer the case. Headsets are available from many different sources and in many configurations. Most will work effectively with the telephone sets being used at Western. Please see below for information on headsets that have been used successfully at Western along with some possible vendors for future headset purchases.
Existing rental headsets will be considered to be the property of the renting department effective May 1, 2010 and the monthly rental charge will be discontinued. ITS will not provide sales, installation or repair support for headsets.
