Online Telecommuncations Service Request Form

NACS online Service Request Form

NACS Online Service Request Form

NACS clients are asked to use our online service request form for making network and telecommunications service requests.  Orders for telephones and lines, wired and wireless network services,  voice mail services, cellular services, calling cards, 800 Mhz radio services, conference unit rental, account fund changes and other telecommunications services are all possible through the use of the online order form.  Requests for telephone and network services at the same location can be ordered together with a single form.

Orders are reviewed, dispatched to the appropriate team for processing, scheduled, and completed typically within five business days.  Orders for 10 or more services require longer lead times.  NACS will do our best to meet any client deadline.

Once an order is in the system, you will receive email confirmation, and you will be able to check on its status online.  A set of administrative tools allows you to review or search through open orders.

If you need assistance with your order, need to make changes to it, or cancel it, or if you would like to check on the feasibility of a tight deadline, contact NACS Telecommunications Customer Support at x45123 or nacs-tcs@uci.edu.

Communications Project Unit

The Communications Project Unit (CPU) is a newly formed group within NACS. Its mission is to focus on campus network and telecommunications infrastructure projects. NACS-CPU has already implemented several process improvements, implemented a new streamlined blanket order process, and reduced the projects backlog.

NACS-CPU works with many other groups and departments in the course of overseeing a project to completion. In particular, NACS Network Operations handles much of the actual installation and testing of new network equipment.

NACS-CPU is currently managing the College of Medicine Network “Edge” Upgrade Project, several large building projects, and many smaller communications projects.

Diane Dunn, Manager of Communications Projects, plans and manages all UCI campus network and telecommunications infrastructure projects. Diane’s goal is to ensure that projects are well planned and well managed, completed on-time and within budget, and meet client expectations.

Todd Strand, Infrastructure Engineer, designs and estimates the costs for network and telecommunications infrastructure projects. He provides designs, plans, specifications, and detailed cost estimates during the planning stages of a project. Todd is a Registered Communications Distribution Designer, a LAN Specialist, and an Outside Plant Specialist (OSP).

Bruce Cotsonas, Project Coordinator, coordinates the communications with end users during long-term projects. He stays informed about short-range and long-range plans that could require communications infrastructure.
