CONNECT PROVISIONING IMPROVEMENTS  

PASSWORD RESET AND EMAIL VERIFICATION
As part of our efforts to improve security and provide password reset functionality all users will be asked to enter a valid email address when they login.  When a user enters valid login credentials they will be asked to enter an email address.  Once the user enters in their email and clicks send, a verification email will be sent to the entered email address.  The email will provide a verification link, which once clicked will automatically validate the user.   

CISCO MRA PHONES WITH EXPRESS WAY 
Cisco MRA (Mobile and Remote Access) phones will be used as the Sipera replacement. A new device type called MRA phone will be added to the Phone Wizard.  The following models will be allowed: 8800 series (8865, 8861, 8851, 8845, 8841 and 8811), 7800 series (7861, 7841, 7821, and 7811).   

NOTE: Common Area phones cannot be provisioned with MRA because MRA phones require user login credentials.
