Service Information


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. Employees who cannot or do not want to migrate (yet) will keep the same service as before. (The hardphone remains on the workstation and nothing changes).

The UC Web Client serves as the basis for the new telephone services. This can be started with the Chrome, Edge or Safari browser. (Firefox at the moment not yet)


Several browsers support the UC Web Client.

  • Windows: Microsoft Edge (recommended), Goggle Chrome.
  • Apple Macintosh: Google Chrome
  • MAC Safari: >= V12
  • Linux: Google Chrome
    (Firefox is not supported)


A migration to UC can be ordered either via Phone Control Center or via IT Shop.


After the order has been executed, the users receive an invitation e-mail with the link to the softphone and the access data.

For security reasons, users are prompted to change their password when they log in for the first time.

In exceptional cases, no e-mail is sent. However, a login is still possible by resetting the password of the OpenScape UC softphone in the Phone Control Center and then calling the softphone with the Web Client link.

After the setup, each user receives an e-mail informing about a conference. This e-mail is setup-related, can be ignored and deleted.

Occasionally it happens that no invitation mail is sent although the migration was executed properly.

The UC softphone can be started via the Phone Control Center under the OpenScape UC with the Open web client link and then reset under Password reset.
