Telephone & Jabber Accessory Recommendations


ITS does not provide or recommend a specific list of approved devices for use with telephones or telephone services on campus, but we do attempt to support devices that are compatible with our system. This list provides some products that we have found to work well in our environment.

For departments that want other options, the Logitech, Jabra, Sennheiser and Plantronics companies provide many headset and accessory options and can evaluate whether they are compatible with your device.

Note: Jabra is a headset manufacturer and is a distinct entity from Cisco Jabber software. Jabra is not a Cisco-owned company.
