109 Years of Daylights Savings, Are Your Phones Ready for DST?

By July 2, 2018 September 4th, 2018 No Comments

Daylights savings was first used in Ontario on July 1st, 1908 in Port Arthur by turning their clocks forward one hour. Ever since we have been springing forward and falling back with Canada as one of the few countries that didn’t temporarily stop using DST during World War 1.

109 years on from that first time and we still can be unprepared for daylight savings. Digitcom had 15 companies last March who needed urgent help configuring their phone systems to accommodate the time change.

Most Common Causes
Phone system not configured to NTP (Network Time Protocol)
Running on an old version of Avaya IP Office, it is configured but the NTP is unreachable

Any version older than 9.1 is no longer supported, if you are running on one of these versions contact us to see if you would benefit from moving to a newer supported version.
