Telephone/Radio Consulting

Did you know that NACS has a wide variety of telephone sets and related features available to the campus? We are here to serve your individual department’s needs. We are happy to make a site visit to your department to review your service needs and to help you select the features that can make your job easier. If you have the services you need, but are unsure of how to use the telephone and voice mail systems to the fullest extent, we offer training free of charge. Please contact NACS Telephone Customer Service at (949) 82-5123 to request a consultation or to sign up for training.

Departments using 800Mhz radios as part of their daily communications can benefit greatly from a consultation with our 800Mhz radio system specialist. He will meet with you to review the current programming in your radios, and he will ask questions to determine what programming changes would enhance the functionality of your radios specific to your department needs. In addition, we offer training from the basic daily use of the radio system, including handy system features, as well as specialized training for radio use in an emergency. Please contact Brian Chrisman at (949) 82-5123 for more information.

Radio Systems Specialist

Brian Chrisman

Brian Chrisman

In 2002, Network and Academic Computing Services (NACS) created the Radio Systems Specialist position, in order to better serve our clients. The new position consolidated management of the 800MHz radio system and cellular carriers’ cell sites on campus, responsibilities which at that time were shared among several NACS staff. Brian Chrisman was hired to fill the new position.

Brian was previously employed by the Motorola vendor that maintains the radio infrastructure on campus. He was able to transition into the new position quickly because of prior experience with UCI’s 800MHz radio system.

Brian has diverse responsibilities, but some key ones are:

  • 800 MHz radio system administration, vendor coordination, performance analysis, and system maintenance/upgrades.
  • Customer service, analysis of campus radio needs for daily operations and emergency use, communications consulting, and radio training for campus departments.
  • Assessment of need for additional cell sites on campus with campus administration. Coordination with all responsible parties for planning and construction of sites.

Brian Chrisman is available on campus Monday through Friday. He can be reached at (949) 824-8151 or for assistance with campus radio communications.
