Before you can use the web interface or download the software from IUware, you must read and agree to the IU Emergency 911 Acknowledgment Statement. It simply explains that computer-based phone applications have inherent limitations when sending automatic location information to utilities such as emergency 911 services, which may depend on landline information to respond.
After you sign the Emergency 911 statement, your UniCom Basic account is automatically created and you’re ready to download Lync for Windows or Mac from IUware. Note also that all UniCom users—including Linux users—can use Outlook Web App from a web browser without installing anything. At any time, you can upgrade to UniCom with Enterprise Voice.
If you have an account at IU and have already installed the software, setup and sign-in on your computer is automatic.
