Introducing the Berkeley Telecom Catalog


Welcome to the Berkeley Telecom Catalog, an updated and easier-to-use version of the IST Shopping Cart.

Since the launch of the new Telecom Catalog in May 2014, campus customers have been using the Telecom Catalog to procure all Voice Products and Services.  On Monday, September 21, 2015, campus customers started using the Telecom Catalog to place requests for Data Network services.

Place request for all Telecom services at 

This includes:  

  • Requesting new services
  • Changing, moving or disconnecting existing services
  • Voice
  • Cellular
  • ReadyTalk
  • Funding Changes and Service Ownership Changes
  • Voice Projects
  • Data Network

Once the order is placed, the system generates an order or RITM number for the request.  That serves as your tracking number for the service request you made.

Notification of changes about an existing order can be made directly into the order or RITM number in the notes section.  The analyst assigned to process your order can see and get the information directly from the order notes or comments.

Services Offered by Application

Go to the IST Shopping Cart

Open an incident for break/fix or support questions at

This includes:

  • Voicemail password resets
  • Repair for existing voice services
  • Support for using voice services, e.g., ReadyTalk or voicemail support
  • Request consultation on voice and data network services
  • General inquiries

Once an incident is opened, the system issues a tracking number that can be used to follow your request until it is resolved. Comments can be added at any time for the analyst who is working on your incident.

Since most of our customers already know and are used to sending us questions and inquiries via our email address, we thought it will be best to allow the system to automate the process of forwarding emails from directly into service now incident.   You will notice that when you send email to, you get an incident request acknowledgement from Service Now incident management.  This is efficient and removes the confusion about when to log in at a different location

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our consulting unit at or call 664-9000. Select options 1,3,1 to speak to one of our consultants.
