CHAPTER 1. Introducing the SVMi-20i
Chapter 1 describes the SVMi-20i overview and specifications.
Overview
The SVMi-20i is designed to meet the demands of the sophisticated voice mail user without
sacrificing simplicity. The SVMi-20i is a self contained, plug in (In-Skin) Auto Attendant
and Voice Mail card.

The SVMi-20i is made to work exclusively for the OfficeServ 7200/7400 Series
systems.

The SVMi-20i may act as an Auto Attendant system only, a Voice Mail system only or
both.

The SVMi-20i can handle 4 calls simultaneously without license. It can handle up to
20 concurrent calls by adding licenses. Voice mail licenses are available in
increments of four.

(Note: Maximum 16 concurrent calls are guaranteed in case of sRTP calls)

The SVMi-20i can connect to IP enabled phones and trunks without MGI card.

Up to 4 Fax Ports can be supported (license required). Fax licenses are available in
increments of one.

Functional Overview
The SVMi-20i performs two major software functions: Auto Attendant and Voice Mail.
Auto Attendant
The SVMi-20i Auto Attendant (AA) operates by automatically answering calls and playing
one or more custom prompts to the caller along with some dialing instructions. The caller may
then press digits on the keypad to direct themselves to an appropriate person or department.
The Auto Attendant can answer calls with a pre-recorded prompt and offer the caller several
possible dialing options including dialing another extension number, transferring to an
operator, accessing pre-recorded information, or connecting to voice mail system.
© Samsung Telecommunications America, LLC.
1-1
Voice Mail
The SVMi-20i Voice Mail provides a message recording service when the called party is
unavailable under various conditions (busy, no answer, or all the time). When calling an
extension number, the caller may be routed directly to the voice mail or transferred to the
extension first, depending on the configuration. The voice mail will answer a call with a
customized greeting recorded in a subscriber‟s (mailbox owner‟s) own voice. The caller can
then leave a message, following a given instruction.
The subscriber (mailbox owner) can access the mailbox from any location with a DTMFenabled phone and retrieve his or her messages.
Many options are available to handle retrieval and recording of messages. The SVMi-20i,
email gateway functionality can be enabled to have voice mail messages sent to an email
server (virtually any email server) that supports SMTP.

SVMi-20i Administration Guide
Feature Description
The SVMi-20i software is pre-installed on the SVMi-20i when shipped from the factory. All
features in the SVMi-20i are configured with default values. The SVMi-20i tool can be used to
modify default configuration. The following is a brief description of each feature available in
the SVMi-20i.
System Features
Caller ID Compatible
If a mailbox user subscribes to a Caller ID service provided by a service provider, the SVMi20i can handle the Caller ID data. The Caller ID data appearing on phones is also saved in the
voice mail box for each message recorded on the voice mail. This can be used for call back or
simply for identifying the caller.
Fax Detection and Transfer
The SVMi-20i can detect a fax call and transfer it to any extension in the system. This feature
can be enabled at any menu so that a fax call can be transferred to a destination related to the
menu. For instance, if the feature is enabled in a menu offering choices for sales, then the call
would be sent to the sales department‟s fax machine, but if it is enabled in a menu offering
choices for the finance department, then the call would be sent to the finance department‟s fax
machine.
© Samsung Telecommunications America, LLC.
1-3
Flexible Numbering Plan
An organization can assign an extension or a mailbox to any identification number from one to
ten digits. All of these resources can share the same identification numbering plan without
conflict. For example, an organization can have, in one SVMi-20i system, an extension
numbered 123, and a mailbox numbered 123. In addition, the SVMi-20i can distinguish
between variable length identification numbers beginning with the same digit, such as
extension number 1, 12, or 1234567890.
Individually Defined Mailboxes and Extensions
Extensions and Mailboxes are separate and independent system resources. A mailbox does not
have to be defined in terms of an extension, or an extension in terms of a mailbox, in order for
the SVMi-20i to associate them.
An Extension is used for routing callers to the Subscriber. This gives the Subscriber complete
control (if authorized) over how, where and when they take their calls.
A Mailbox is simply used for taking and controlling messages for the subscriber in the event
he/she can not (or do not wish to) speak to their callers.
Keyset Display and Soft Key Support
If you have a display keyset the number of new messages will be displayed
on it. The display will also echo many of the options available. You will be able to negotiate
through the SVMi-20i menus using the keyset display and the soft keys below the display to
respond to the prompts.
MOH Supply
Music or announcements may be recorded in the SVMi-20i memory and used by the phone
system for Music On Hold. The recorded announcement or music will play in a continuous
loop and may be used to provide custom on hold announcements or promotional messages.
Multiple Mailbox Support
The SVMi-20i can, in principle, support up to virtually unlimited mailboxes, although
obviously having only the 20 port hardware places practical limits on the system according to
the individual system traffic and type of application.

SVMi-20i Administration Guide
Operating Mode-Oriented Call Processing
The SVMi-20i can be configured to automatically change among up to 99 different customer
operating modes, based upon the time of day, day of week, or specific calendar date. During an
operating mode, every aspect of the call automation application, including port utilization,
caller scripts, routing solutions, and call coverage options can be customized to meet the
organization‟s operating requirements. SVMi-20i‟s schedule table automatically changes to the
correct mode without human involvement.
Operating Mode Override
Under exceptional circumstances, such as adverse weather conditions and other organizational
emergencies or when the office may be inaccessible, the administrator can override the
schedule table.
The administrator calls the SVMi-20i, enters the administrative password, and selects a new
operating mode for any or all ports. The new operating mode can be programmed for the
circumstances, or the administrator can simply record a new company greeting which explains
the circumstances to callers.
Recordable System Prompts
Although the SVMi-20i contains many prompts for general purposes, some people may want
to add or record some additional prompts. This can easily be done using the built-in voice
studio. Any prompt in the system can be re-recorded.
© Samsung Telecommunications America, LLC.
1-5
Schedule Table
The schedule table automatically controls system mode by individual ports, time of day, day of
week and calendar date without human intervention.
It is capable of scheduling ninety-nine mode changes per day for 366 consecutive days. The
administrator can manually override the schedule table at any time from a touchtone telephone,
or from a management interface.
For Holidays and Calendar of Events, the Schedule Table can be used to schedule holiday and
special event caller prompts to better inform and serve callers.
Synchronized Clock
The SVMi-20i clock is responsible for providing each message with a date and time stamp.
This clock is always synchronized with the OfficeServ main system, as is changing between
day and night modes.

SVMi-20i Administration Guide
Auto Attendant Features
Alphabetic Directory (Multiple)
Callers who do not know an extension number in the system but do know a name may enter ,
for example, the first few letters of the person‟s name and be transferred to the person‟s
extension number. The SVMi-20i can store up to 1000 unique directory names, and a caller
can search subscribers using either the first or last name.
Auto Attendant Routing
The Auto Attendant can transfer or route callers based on the digits they enter. Callers may be
transferred to station, groups, or the system directory to select a subscriber based on their
name.
Automatic After Hours Answering
The main Auto Attendant greeting changes from the day to the night greetings automatically
when the system changes from day to night mode.
Multiple additional modes may be defined for special applications.
Announce Hold Position
If callers are allowed to hold for a busy extension,the SVMi-20i is able to intermittently
inform the caller of their place in the queue. This feature not supported for station group calls.
© Samsung Telecommunications America, LLC.
1-7
Announce Hold Time
If callers are allowed to hold for a busy extension, the SVMi-20i is able to intermittently
inform the caller of the estimated hold time before being answered. This feature is not
supported for station group calls.
Camp On Support
Each station user on the system may decide if they want the SVMi-20i to transfer additional
calls to them if they are on the phone. Calls transferred to a busy station, if unanswered will be
sent to voice mail or any other destination according to the user's needs.
Direct to Mailbox
You may have mailboxes on the SVMi-20i system that do not have associated stations. This is
ideal if you have a small number of employees in your office but numerous employees outside
the office that need to keep in contact.
Holiday and Special Events
When your business closes because of a holiday or special event, the SVMi-20i can provide a
special appropriate prompting to your callers. You may create specific holiday schedules so
that this process works automatically.
Incoming Call Overflow
The SVMi-20i may be programmed to answer any or all lines immediately or answer only the
calls that your operator does not pick up.Overflowed calls may be routed to either a mailbox or
the main company prompt.
Interruptible Voice Prompts
At any time when a greeting is being played, callers may dial a selection and the SVMi-20i
will immediately respond. It is not necessary to listen to all the options if you are a „power
user‟ and know what you are doing.
Maximum Greeting Length
The maximum greeting length can be configured for each subscriber. For example, greeting
length for sales personnel may be up to three minutes, purchasing staff up to five minutes and
production staff two minutes.
Multiple Call Handling
The SVMi-20i can answer and process up to 20 calls concurrently.
1-8
© Samsung Telecommunications America, LLC.
SVMi-20i Administration Guide
Multiple Language Support
The SVMi-20i supports multiple languages. Up to nine (9) languages can be supported
concurrently. Each subscriber can set a language for his or her own needs. The default
language is decided according to the country.
A list of available languages can be obtained and installed by your local authorized Samsung
service provider.
Note: Each language installed will take up approximately 15~20Megs (30 to 40 minutes) of
message storage.
Operator Access
Callers may connect with an available operator any time by dialing 0. This is provided that the
customer has someone answering the Operator's calls.
Single Digit Call Routing
A menu processor can be configured to recognize single digit routing options, or use the same
digit as the leading entry of a multi-digit routing option.
For example, in the menu processor, „1‟ can be used to route a caller to the sales department
and „103‟ to transfer the caller to a subscriber‟s extension.
© Samsung Telecommunications America, LLC.
1-9
Access Manager
The Access Manager empowers the subscriber with control over how, what, when, and
where they wish to speak to their callers. A subscriber may prevent calls from ringing at their
extension, or have the calls transferred to any other extension in the phone system, transferred
off-site to any other phone number, or screen the call before answering them. Any of these
conditions can be set to be active until a specified time. The SVMi-20i can even be set with a
high priority „Find Me‟ instruction so that the system will try to reach a subscriber at multiple
locations.
Block Personal Greeting
This greeting is played to the caller anytime the subscriber enables the Call Blocking feature in
the SVM or sets their keyset to Call Forward All/DND.
Busy Personal Greeting
This greeting is played to the caller anytime the subscriber is on the phone and they have
their keyset set to Call Forward Busy or Call Forward Busy/No-Answer.
Call Blocking
While a subscriber has call blocking set active, the SVMi-20i does not attempt to transfer a
caller to the subscriber‟s extension. Instead, it immediately plays the subscriber‟s Call
Blocking Greeting greeting, if recorded. If the Call Blocking greeting is not recorded, the
SVMi-20i plays the subscriber‟s primary No-Answer greeting, if recorded.
When the No-Answer greeting is not recorded, the SVMi-20i advises the caller that the called
party is not available and offers additional options to the caller.
A subscriber can set Call Blocking active using Access Manager Services. After activating
Call Blocking, the subscriber is prompted to indicate how long blocking is to remain active.
This feature can be activated for a number of hours, 1 to 9, for the end of the current business
day, for the beginning of the next business day, for a day of the coming week, for Monday
through Sunday, for a specific date, for hour and minute, or until further notice.
Call Forwarding
Forward All Calls allows a subscriber to have their incoming calls answered by an associate at
another internal extension-it is not used to forward calls to an external telephone number. To
have calls connected to an external number, the subscriber has to use the Designated Location
Service.
When calls are forwarded to another associate‟s extension, a caller entering the forwarder‟s
extension number will immediately hear „Transferring to „Called Party‟s Name‟. Calls are
being forwarded to „Associate‟s Name‟‟.
1-10
© Samsung Telecommunications America, LLC.
SVMi-20i Administration Guide
If the associate answers the call, the associate will be prompted as to who the call is forwarded
from.
This feature can be activated for a number of hours, 1 to 9, for the end of the current business
day, for the beginning of the next business day, for a day of the coming week, for Monday
through Sunday, for a specific date, for hour and minute, or until further notice is given.
Day/Night Personal Greeting
Night Personal Greeting works in conjunction with the subscriber‟s Weekly Availability
Schedule.
During the defined availability period, the SVMi-20i will automatically play the Primary NoAnswer Greeting to callers, unless the subscriber is busy on another call and has recorded a
Busy Greeting or Call Blocking is set active and a Call Blocking Greeting is recorded.
During the time periods a subscriber is not scheduled available to take calls, and does not have
Call Blocking activated, SVMi-20i plays the subscriber‟s Night Greeting if recorded.
Find Me
When Find Me is set active, the SVMi-20i attempts to deliver calls to the subscriber‟s
designated location, provided neither Call Blocking nor Forward All Call is active. The SVMi20i first tries to locate the subscriber at the subscriber‟s designated location. Then, if necessary,
it tries each of the subscriber‟s Stored Telephone Numbers until all numbers have been called.
After each stored telephone number is tried, the SVMi-20i will prompt the caller that it is
continuing to locate the subscriber. If the SVMi-20i cannot locate the subscriber, the
subscriber‟s Call Blocking Greeting is played to the caller.
This feature can be activated for a number of hours, 1 to 9, for the end of the current business
day, for the beginning of the next business day, for a day of the coming week, for Monday
through Sunday, for a specific date, for hour and minute, or until further notice is given.
A call transferred to a designated location is automatically a confirmed transfer. The subscriber
must press a digit to accept the transfer or they can press other digits to reject, redirect, or
record a real-time greeting that plays immediately to that caller.
Follow Me (Off Premises Transfer)
Each subscriber may have their calls automatically forwarded to a designated location.We call
that location, the subscriber‟s Designated Location.
A Designated Location can be an internal extension or an external telephone number. It can be
entered digit-by-digit or the subscriber can enter a Stored Telephone Number Index Digit
representing the location of the appropriate number.
© Samsung Telecommunications America, LLC.
1-11
Whenever a subscriber sets his designated location to a number other than his extension
number, the SVMi-20i prompts, „How long do you want this number to be your designated
location?‟ This feature can be activated for a number of hours, 1 to 9, for the end of the current
business day, for the beginning of the next business day, for a day of the coming week, for
Monday through Sunday, for a specific date, hour and minute, or until further notice is given.
A call transferred to a designated location is automatically a confirmed transfer. The subscriber
must press a digit to accept the transfer or they can press other digits to reject, redirect, or
record a real-time greeting that plays immediately to that caller.
Hold for Busy Station
The SVMi-20i may be enabled to allow callers to hold for a busy station.
When a caller elects to hold, the SVMi-20i places the caller in a Hold Queue.
If additional callers attempt to reach the busy extension and they choose to hold, they can be
informed of their position in the queue and the estimated hold time before being connected.
Callers given the option to hold may be limited. When the limit is reached, callers can be
routed to other extensions or applications that have been configured to deal with this condition.
Multiple Personal Greetings (9)
When a subscriber does not answer or accept a call, the SVMi-20i will answer.
The SVMi-20i recognizes five different reasons why a subscriber does not answer a call. We
refer to these reasons as Call Coverage Conditions. The SVMi-20i allows a subscriber to
assign a different personal greeting to each Call Coverage Condition. A condition should be
considered a „socket‟ into which a personal greeting is plugged. The greeting that gets plugged
into each socket should offer caller options appropriate for that condition.
The SVMi-20i provides each subscriber nine (9) personal greetings, labeled 1 through 9. A
subscriber can assign (plug in) any greeting to any Call Coverage Condition. However, when a
subscriber first logs on to the SVMi-20i, personal greetings numbered 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5, are
assigned to their respective Call Coverage Conditions (No Answer, Busy, Fwd All/DND, Night
and Call Screening). The remaining four personal greetings, labeled 6 through 9, are normally
used as alternatives to the greetings assigned to these conditions.
Night Intercept
This feature is used in conjunction with the subscriber‟s availability schedule. When this
feature is enabled and the subscriber is scheduled as unavailable, callers are NOT transferred
to the subscriber‟s extension. Instead, the SVMi-20i immediately plays the subscriber‟s Night
Greeting if recorded.
1-12
© Samsung Telecommunications America, LLC.
SVMi-20i Administration Guide
Night Personal Greeting
This greeting plays to the caller anytime the subscriber is scheduled as unavailable based on
the availability schedule. If the subscriber is scheduled unavailable the caller will here the
Night Greeting during a No-Answer Call condition or if Night Intercept is enabled.
Park and Overhead Page
For those users who are frequently away from their desk, the SVMi-20i provides a Park and
Page capability.When a subscriber does not answer a call, the subscriber's personal greeting
can contain an option to be paged.When the caller elects to have the subscriber paged, the
SVMi-20i parks the call and plays a prompt through the overhead paging facility that contains
the subscriber's name and a pickup code.The SVMi-20i waits a programmable period of time
for the subscriber to pick-up the call.When the call is not picked up, the SVMi-20i notifies the
caller that the page was not answered and plays the subscriber's Primary or No-Answer
greeting.
Personal Customized Options
Each subscriber may have different personal options played to callers.
For example, a caller may hold until the subscriber is available to take the call. These options
must be enabled by the system administrator.
Retrieve Public Caller From Hold
When a subscriber logs on, they are notified if a caller is holding, and the SVMi-20i offers to
transfer the caller to the subscriber‟s designated location. If the caller is identified, the SVMi20i will speak the caller‟s name. When the subscriber elects to speak with the caller, he or she
simply presses 1 and hangs up.
If the subscriber elects not to speak with the caller, the SVMi-20i immediately plays the
subscriber‟s mailbox greeting.
Screened Rejected Personal Greeting
This greeting plays to the caller anytime a subscriber rejects a screened transferred call from
the SVMi-20i. The system administrator can authorize the Call Screening feature per
subscriber. The Call Screening feature must be authorized in advance to have a Call Screening
Greeting.
Stored Telephone Numbers
A subscriber can store up to five telephone numbers where they can usually be reached. This
simplifies the Follow Me feature as it allows the subscriber to quickly activate commonly used
settings.
© Samsung Telecommunications America, LLC.
1-13
Weekly Availability Schedule
The Weekly Availability Schedule tells the SVMi-20i the days of the week and the hours of the
day that a subscriber is normally available to take calls.
When the subscriber does not answer a call during those time periods, the appropriate Day or
Night greeting is played. This schedule may be set by the administrator or the subscriber.

SVMi-20i Administration Guide
Voice Mail Features
Answer Machine Emulation
This feature allows you to monitor calls being left in your voice mail box through the speaker
of your keyset. In function it is very much like screening a call on your home answer machine.
Auto Conversation Record
With the SVMi-20i card installed in your phone system, you may record all the phone
conversations for specific extensions. An optional tone with a programmable delay may be
played to alert callers and employees during the recording process. When calls are recorded,
any mailbox settings that would normally effect maximum message duration are ignored.
Note: Call Record utilizes the conference feature. The number of people who can use the CR
feature simultaneously, is limited to the number of available conference circuits in the system.
Warning: Before using this feature, make sure that you are not violating any state or federal
laws. Some states require that the recorded party be notified. Samsung is not responsible for
any illegal use of this feature.
Auto Forward
The Message Auto Forward feature allows messages left in one mailbox to be automatically
forwarded to another mailbox if the message is not listened to. The delay time before the
message is forwarded is configurable between 00:00 (immediately) and 23:59 (1 day). After
the message is forwarded, it may be deleted or saved in the original mailbox. The forwarded
message, when accessed by the receiving subscriber, will play „this message was forwarded
from „forwarder‟s recorded name‟‟.
Auto Log In
When calling Voice Mail, the system can correctly identify you as the caller and ask for your
password (optional). The benefits of this are that you do not have to identify yourself to the
SVMi-20i, it knows who is calling, and what mailbox you want to access.
Auto Message Play
Each subscriber may choose to select messages to play (new or old) or may configure their
mailbox to automatically play new messages. This is useful if you are in a situation where
keystrokes must be kept to a minimum.
Broadcast
If authorized, a subscriber can broadcast a message to everyone in the system. Any or all of the
subscribers can be given this option. By default, no subscribers are authorized.
© Samsung Telecommunications America, LLC.
1-15
Call Back
When listening to your voice mail messages, you may press one key to automatically call back
the person who left you the message.
This call back feature may be allowed for internal calls and/or external calls. Long distance
may be either allowed or denied and specific area codes may be allowed or denied. For
external calls, Caller ID is used and therefore must be received from the phone company.
Call Forward to Voice Mail
Any station on the OfficeServ system may be forwarded to the SVMi-20i voice mail.
Forwarding types are Forward All Calls, Forward Only When Busy, Forward Only When No
Answer, or Forward When either Busy or No Answer.
Call Record
With the SVMi-20i card installed in your phone system, you may record conversations in
progress. Simply press a button to record the current conversation in your mailbox or any
other mailbox. An optional tone with a programmable delay may be played to callers during
the recording process.When calls are recorded, any mailbox settings that would normally
effect maximum message duration are ignored.
Note: Call Record utilizes the conference feature. The number of people who can use the CR
feature simultaneously, is limited to the number of available conference circuits in the system.
Warning: Before using this feature, make sure that you are not violating any state or federal
laws. Some states require that the recorded party be notified. Samsung is not responsible for
any illegal use of this feature.
Call Back Request Messages
Messages may be flagged as Call Back Requested. The caller can enter a specific number that
will allow the subscriber to return the call by pressing one key.
Date and Time Stamp
Each message you receive will be stamped with the time and date of its arrival. This
information may be played to the subscriber before each message or may be played only on
demand. Each individual subscriber may set this option.
Delivery Imperative
When a message is designated as Delivery Imperative, the SVMi-20i will take extra steps to
deliver it. The recipient‟s stored telephone numbers will be tried.

SVMi-20i Administration Guide
Direct Messaging/Quick Memo
This feature makes it easier to leave messages for others in the office. It allows a user to access
mailboxes without dialing the extension number first and easily leave a message for anyone
that has a mailbox.
Distribution Lists
Lists of mailboxes may be set up and given a simple numeric identity. Subscribers may use
these lists to easily leave or transfer messages into multiple mailboxes simultaneously. This list
can include any number of subscriber mailboxes and other lists. The SVMi-20i does not limit
the number of lists that a subscriber can access. When a message is sent to a list, each mailbox
on the list receives a copy. The SVMi-20i‟s unique message management facilities make the
process of distributing a copy to each mailbox on the list immediate even for very large lists.
Extended Prompting
With Extended Prompting set active, the SVMi-20i offers all prompts for the menu the
subscriber has accessed.When Extended Prompting is not set active, the SVMi-20i offers only
the name of the menu the subscriber is accessing and the prompt, „For additional options, press
0‟.
External Number Notification
When you have messages in your mailbox, you may be alerted at your cell phone, home phone
or any other phone. The SVMi-20i will make 3 attempts to contact you. If it encounters a busy
signal, it will try again in 5 minutes. If it encounters no answer, it will try again in 15 minutes.
External Pager Notification
When you have messages in your mailbox you may be notified via your pager. The display on
your pager will show your mailbox number. By default the SVMi-20i will make 3 attempts to
contact you. If it encounters a busy signal it will try again in 5 minutes, if it encounters a no
answer it will try again in 15 minutes.
Fax Mail
FaxMail subscribers may offer their callers "one-number" voice and fax. Voice calls are
delivered to a subscriber's extension and/or mailbox. FaxCalls are automatically delivered to a
subscriber's mailbox.Callers can also attach a voice message to a fax document when calling
from a voice-enabled fax device.
NOTE: This feature requires a least one fax port license be installed on the system.

Future Delivery
When a subscriber leaves a Self Memo (Reminder), Direct Message (Quick Memo) or any
other message for another subscriber, a future delivery date may be specified. This is
particularly useful if you use the „reminder‟ feature as a virtual „to do‟ list. Delivery
Scheduling options are for a number of hours, 1 to 9, for the end of the current business day,
based on the subscriber‟s current availability schedule, for the beginning of the next business
day, based on the subscriber‟s current availability schedule, for a day of the coming week, for
Monday through Sunday or for hour and minute on a specific date.
Also for any message not yet delivered, a subscriber can review, modify and discard future
delivery messages to be sent but not yet delivered.
Group and Sort Messages Prior to Play
A subscriber can group for playback either new or saved messages. Grouping categories are,
Urgent, Callback Request, Reminders, Fax Messages, Messages from a Specific Sender, or
Private Messages.
Individual Mailbox Greeting
Each mailbox has its own associated individual greeting recorded in the subscriber‟s (mailbox
owner‟s) voice. This may be changed as frequently as you desire. This only gets played if you
do not have one of your call condition greetings recorded.
Individual Mailbox Name
Each mailbox has its own associated individual name recorded in the mailbox owner‟s voice.
Individual Mailbox Password
Each mailbox has its own associated individual password selected by the user or system
administrator. This provides some security and prevents unauthorized access. The password
may be up to 8 digits long.
Maximum Number of Messages
The maximum number of messages a mailbox can hold is 9,999. The maximum number of
messages can be set for each mailbox.
Note that this is a software setting. Maximum number of messages is also influenced by the
size of the storage media, number of subscribers, maximum message length settings, and the
length of the actual messages recorded and left on the system.

SVMi-20i Administration Guide
Message Address Verification
After entering the mailbox number to which a message is being sent, the SVMi-20i echoes the
name of the recipient, confirming the message is going to the intended subscriber. The address
verification is also played when the subscriber forwards an existing message.
Message Alert Notification Schedule
The Weekly Notification Schedule tells the SVMi-20i the days of the week and the hours of
the day that a subscriber wants to be notified of new messages at an alternate phone number.
This Schedule may be set by the administrator or the subscriber.
Message Counter
Whenever you access your mailbox, you are told the number of new and old messages. You
may selectively listen to the new or the old messages.
Message Delete
When a message has been heard, you may delete it.
Message Delivery Options
At anytime prior to sending a message, a subscriber can assign any or all of the following
delivery options to a message: Urgent Priority, Return Receipt/Certified, Callback Request,
Private, or Reply Required.
Message Fast Forward
When listening to a message, you may fast-forward 5 seconds. This is useful if you are looking
for a specific piece of information like a phone number.
Message Forward With Append
Messages received in your mailbox may be forwarded to other mailboxes or lists on the
system. A message may be forwarded to another subscriber or distribution list if a destination
mailbox is configured. The subscriber may record an introductory comment if desired. The
message header is modified to reflect the forwarding party and time. Forwarding multiple
copies allows the subscriber to record introductions for each destination mailbox.
Forwarded messages may be re-forwarded, with additional introductions, using the same
procedure.
Message Length Controls
Maximum message length can be set for each mailbox. The default value for the maximum
message length is 10 minutes. It can be modified to up to 9,999 seconds.
© Samsung Telecommunications America, LLC.
1-19
Message Pause
At any time while listening to your voice mail messages, you can pause the playback.
Message Play Order
Each mailbox may be set up to play messages in order of oldest first (First In First Out-FIFO)
or newest first (Last In First Out-LIFO).
Message Replay
Messages may be replayed as many times as you like.
Message Reply
When listening to your voice mail messages you may press one key to automatically leave a
message for the person who left you a message, this call return feature may always be used for
internal calls, and also outside calls if Caller ID is received and if the feature is allowed by the
system administrator. A subscriber may reply to a message sent by a public caller. If the public
caller requested a return call, the SVMi-20i will play the message envelope and announce,
„Callback Requested‟. This means the public caller entered his or her telephone number into
the mailbox with touch-tone at the time he left the message.
Message Retention Time by Subscriber
The length of time messages are stored prior to automatic purging may be set for each mailbox.
Retention Time can be set from 1 to 9,999 days.
Retention Time applies to both new and saved messages. Each time a message is saved, the
Retention Time is reset. Only messages that have not been accessed are automatically deleted.
Message Retrieve
Any sent message may be canceled before the recipient receives it. Any message that has been
sent but not listened to by the recipient may be retrieved („pulled back‟) into the sender‟s
mailbox. If the message was independently sent to several subscribers, each copy may be
retrieved separately.
A message sent to a distribution list may be retrieved up to the time it is first played by any
member of the list. Retrieving a message from a distribution list pulls it back from all list
members. It may then be edited, updated, rerecorded, deleted, or sent to a different destination.
This capability is particularly useful if the sender incorrectly addresses one copy of a message
to several subscribers or if a change in events makes the message no longer relevant.

SVMi-20i Administration Guide
Message Rewind
When listening to a message you may rewind 5 seconds. This is useful if you are looking for a
specific piece of information like a phone number.
Message Save
You may save any message. Once saved, it will remain as a „saved‟ message until it is
manually deleted or until the message retention timer expires for unlistened messages.
Message Send
From within your mailbox you may send a message to any other mailbox owner on the system.
This makes it easy for any employee who is out of the office to send a message to another
internal user.
Message Scan
Message Scan allows a user who is retrieving his or her messages to „scan‟ through them. The
first few seconds of each message will be played. This makes it easy to find a specific message.
Message Skip
When listening to new messages, if you a searching for a specific one, you can skip over new
messages. This saves the message as a new message. It is like picking one thing out of your inbasket without disturbing all the others.
Message Undelete
The undelete feature of the SVMi-20i will allow you to retrieve messages that have been
deleted. The subscriber is allowed to „Undelete‟ a message any time before the next Daily
Maintenance is performed. By default, the system performs Daily Maintenance everyday at
3:00 am. Deleted messages are PERMANENTLY deleted after Daily Maintenance is finished.
Message Waiting Light Indication
An indication on your IP/TDM phones tells you when you have new messages. Additionally,
if the IP/TDM phone has a display, it will show you the current new message status.
Minimum Password Length
This option is set by the system administrator. The setting range is from 0 (No Minimum) to 8
Digits. This requires subscribers to set their password to less than the digit length specified.
This is useful for heightening mailbox access security.
© Samsung Telecommunications America, LLC.
1-21
Multiple Subscriber Mailboxes Login
Multiple subscribers may simultaneously logon to the same mailbox and access messages. All
mailbox functions are available to each subscriber. Message playback is distributed. The first
subscriber logged on will hear the first message. The second subscriber will first hear the
second message, and can access the first message after the first subscriber has finished.
The mailbox continues to be available to receive new messages, regardless of the number of
subscribers logged on. This is useful if you wish to use a mailbox for transcription storage or
order-taking applications.
Multiple Subscriber Mailboxes
Since extensions and mailboxes are separate and independent system resources, a mailbox
does not have to be defined in terms of an extension, or an extension in terms of a mailbox, in
order for the SVMi-20i to associate them.
A subscriber‟s mailbox number need not match the subscriber‟s extension number (though it
typically does). A subscriber can have multiple extensions within the system. Each extension
can be directed to one specific mailbox for taking messages. This is also the case of
departmental messaging where many subscribers share a common mailbox. An extension may
also be directed to a different mailbox at different times of the day or days of the week, as in
departments with rotating staffs.
Name Addressing
This feature allows a subscriber to address messages to other subscribers by name instead of
by mailbox number, eliminating the need to look up numbers or carry personal directories
while traveling.
Net Mailbox (AMIS)
Receives, records, and sends voice messages to mailboxes at off-premise locations. Can send a
message to individual mailbox/telephone number, or to a Distribution List. Can send/receive
messages to or from any voicemail system that is AMIS (Audio Messaging Interchange
Specification) Network compliant.
New/Old Selection
When you access your mailbox, you may choose to listen to either new or old messages. This
makes it easier to find specific information contained in an old message without having to
listen to all the new messages first.
One Touch Access
The SVMi-20i Voice Mail can be accessed to check messages or perform administration
simply by pressing one button on your keyset.

SVMi-20i Administration Guide
Pager Notification Schedule
The Weekly Notification Schedule tells SVMi-20i the days of the week,and the hours of the
day, that a subscriber wants to be notified of new messages via his pager.This Schedule may be
set by the Administrator or the Subscriber. This schedule is independent from the Message
Alert Notification Schedule.
Personal Mailbox Administration
You may change settings for your mailbox any time you like. For instance, you can
personalize the greeting that callers will hear, your name, password, and notification options.
Private (Confidential) Messages
A message can be marked Private. A private message cannot be forwarded to another
subscriber. If the recipient of the private message attempts to forward the message, he or she is
informed that the message is private and may not be forwarded.
Reply Required
A message marked for delivery as Reply Required cannot be saved or deleted until the
recipient performs a voice reply to the message.
Retrieve Public Caller From Mailbox
When a subscriber logs on, they are notified if a caller is in their mailbox, and the SVMi-20i
offers to transfer the caller to the subscriber‟s designated location. If the caller is identified, the
SVMi-20i will speak the caller‟s name.
If the subscriber elects to speak with the caller, the caller is told that the subscriber is now
available and transfers them to the subscriber‟s designated location. If the subscriber elects not
to retrieve the caller, the subscriber can go about listening to other messages while that caller
is leaving a message.
Return Receipt (Certified Messages)
A subscriber may request to be notified when the recipient listens to a message. After the
message has been delivered and played back by the recipient, a confirmation receipt is placed
in the new message queue of the sender‟s mailbox. It contains the date and time that the
message was played.
Self Memo/Reminder
Using this feature, you can easily and quickly leave a reminder in your own mailbox. This
virtual notepad is available wherever there is a phone and can be set for immediate or future
delivery. This feature is useful for keeping track of your entire workload to schedule or serving
as reminders for meetings.
© Samsung Telecommunications America, LLC.
1-23
Self Memo/Reminder Categories
If allowed by the system administrator, a subscriber may designate the reminders they create
as either a Commitment, Follow Up, or Task. The individual meaning of these labels may vary
from person to person.
Their intent is to provide a way of separating reminders into different categories. These
categories can be reviewed in the subscriber Workload Manager.
Subscriber Workload Manager
This allows a subscriber to group reminders by a Commitment, Follow Up or Task in order to
better organize the workload. Their entire workload or a specific group can be reviewed.
Until… Scheduling
The Until… Scheduling method is an easy way to schedule the termination of an SVMi-20i
service relative to the time the service is set active.
Most of the services on the SVMi-20i give subscribers greater control over their
communications by providing Until… Scheduling. The subscriber just sets a time for the
service to terminate when activating it, and does not have to worry about remembering to
deactivate the service in the future.
The Until… Scheduling options are, a number of hours, 1 to 9, the end of the current business
day, based on the subscriber‟s current availability schedule, for the beginning of the next
business day, based on the subscriber‟s current availability schedule, a day of the coming week,
Monday through Sunday, a specific date, hour and minute, or until further notice.
Urgent Messages
Messages left by and for subscribers may be flagged as Urgent.
Urgent messages are played first and notification may be configured to only alert you for these
urgent messages.
Volume Control
The SVMi-20i supports two message playback volumes. This allows you to hear the message
in a convenient manner. You can press '77' during message playback to toggle between two
volume levels.

Audiotex Features
Audiotex
You may use the SVMi-20i to supply recorded announcements to callers. Audiotex allows you
to provide information only without giving the option to record a message. An example of this
might be directions or movie times.This full featured system allows multiple announcements
to be played in sequence with variable options depending on the caller or time of day.
Audiotex Librarian
An Audiotex Librarian manages the announcements that together form its library. Its purpose
is to make sure that the announcements are not outdated and that the caller receives the
appropriate announcement.
Automatic Announcement Delete
Time sensitive Announcements can be automatically deleted from an audiotex
library.An Announcement retention time may be set from 1 to 999 days or 1 to 9999 plays.The
days automatic delete counter is reset to "0" days each time the Announcement plays.The

Fax-On-Demand Features
Caller Selected Delivery
The caller may select same-call or callback delivery to any telephone number. You may also
restrict delivery according to local/long-distance numbers and area codes.
Compound or Multiple Document Delivery
Any number of fax documents may be linked to form a compound document, selected as a
single fax.
Document Librarian
A Fax Document Librarian ensures that a particular fax library is not out-dated; and that
callers have access to copies of the fax documents they are authorized to receive - when and
where they want them.
Guaranteed Fax
Incoming fax documents will always be received with this option active - even when the
company or department fax machine(s) is busy, out of paper, or otherwise out of service. When
all fax machines are busy, even those connected to DID lines, the incoming FaxCall can be
routed to a mailbox capable of accepting and storing the fax document for delivery to the

SVMi-20i Administration Guide
Voiceform Questionnaire (Q & A) Features
This feature allows the SVMi-20i to be used to conduct surveys or collect a response to a preprogrammed questionnaire. Answers are collated and stored in a specific mailbox (es), or the
answers may be split into many different mailboxes. These mailboxes and messages are
administered by subscribers just like any other mailbox and message. The subscriber simply
logs in and listens to the message. This is a useful tool any time you need to collect specific
information from a caller and do not have an available staff member to take the call directly.
The answers are then listened to so that a paper or electronic form could be filled out by the
subscriber listening to the message.
Multiple Response Destinations
Caller responses during a Voiceform session can be routed to multiple mailboxes. Any part of
a caller‟s response may be distributed among several mailboxes. For example, a Voiceform
session might be designed to process customer orders. Portions of the caller‟s responses could
be sent to an accounting mailbox for credit approval while the rest of the responses are routed
to a shipping department mailbox to expedite the order.
Playback Header Prompt
Each response recorded by a caller in a Voiceform session can be prefaced by a playback
header prompt which links the response to the question.
This feature helps in transcription of caller responses by providing reference markers within
the caller‟s total response. With playback headers, when a caller skips a question, the
transcriber does not lose his or her place within the composite Voiceform message.
Team Transcription
The SVMi-20i allows simultaneous multiple user access to Voiceform messages in a
Transcription Mailbox.When multiple access occurs, the SVMi-20i assigns the user the next
new message so that there is no duplication of transcription.
Unlimited Questions
The maximum number of questions-Voice Queries-possible in a single Voiceform session is
not bound by architectural constraints. Voice Queries can be linked to form extended
Voiceform transactions.
© Samsung Telecommunications America, LLC.
1-31
Voiceform
Voiceform is an information collection and distribution facility, which allows an organization
to gather specific information efficiently. An organization creates a series of questions, called a
script, designed to elicit specific responses from a caller. One question with its response
constitutes a Voice Query, and a complete set of questions is a Voiceform. The responses
generated during a dialogue are collected into one or more messages and delivered to
designated transcription mailbox (es). The SVMi-20i manages these messages in the same
manner as any other voice message.
Designated recipients of these messages may review, save, and forward them with comments
using the complete range of voicemail features.
Callers engaged in a Voiceform dialogue may be routed to any and all system resources.

SVMi-20i Administration Guide
IP Interface Features
No need to use MGI card
There is no need to use MGI card for SVMi-20i to operate with IP phones or IP trunks. It
connects to IP phones or IP trunks directly. The IP address of SVMi-20i should be set and
LAN connector should be connected with the network that the main system connected.
NOTE: MGI card is still required to use some conference features for example, VMAME,
VMMOH and overhead paging.
NOTE: OfficeServ Systems always monitors the LAN connection with SVMi-20i. If there is a
problem with the connection(for example, no configuration, bad cable), MGI card is used for
SVMi-20i card to connect to IP phones or IP trunks.
sRTP
SVMi-20i supports sRTP for RTP stream with IP phones or trunks. It supports AES algorithm
for all countries and also supports ARIA algorithm for Korea. It requires more resources than
RTP, so maximum guaranteed VM/AA ports are 16. OfficeServ Systems do not limit to use
over 16 sRTP VM/AA ports, but the quality can be bad if more than maximum guaranteed
ports are used.
T.38 Fax
SVMi-20i can send or receive fax documents via IP network. It supports T.38 protocol or
G.711 passthrough. The DSP options should be set to select which way to use send or receive
fax documents. If G.711 passthrough is set, the codec is automatically changed to G.711 if the
codec is not set as G.711 when transmitting fax documents.

SVMi-20i Administration Guide
CHAPTER 2. Configuration Overview
Chapter 2 describes how to configure the SVMi-20i.
In order to use the SVMi-20i, you must configure related setting in the OfficeServ system in
advance. Refer to the OfficeServ configuration guide for this information.
Installation
The SVMi-20i card can be installed in the OfficeServ 7000 Series Systems.
When installing an SVMi-20i card, it is import to remember that it is a computer, much the
same as any desktop PC and it is therefore very important not to exceed these environmental
limits.
Installing the SVMi-20i
OfficeServ 7000 Series Hardware Compatibility
 It can be installed in any slot of OfficeServ Systems, but the ports are limited by the
maximum ports of the slot.
OfficeServ 7000 Series Software Compatibility
 V4.60 or higher version of the OfficeServ 7200/7400 Series software supports the
SVMi-20i.
Inserting the Card
NOTE: Before powering off the KSU, it is recommended that you use MMC 740 and set SVM
AUTO SETUP to „No‟.
The SVMi-20i card can be installed in any slot of any cabinet. Check that the OfficeServ 7000
Series System‟s power switch is in the OFF position. Next position the SVMi-20i card in the
grooves of the card guide and gently slide the card in until it makes contact with the connector.
Press gently but firmly on the left and right of the front edge of the card until the card seats in
its connector. Press firmly on the Black Front Panel Lever until it snaps securely in place. The
cabinet can now be turned on.
If the SVMi-20i card is being installed in an existing (not new) system, you will have to use
MMC 806 to pre install the card and MMC 740 to assign extension numbers to each SVMi-20i
port. Use any available numbers.

2-37
Note: For 16-20 channels of voicemail, the SVMi-20i must not be installed in the 7200 slot
with only 16 channels and must be installed in a 32 channel slot. (example; slots 3, 4 or 5).
After the SVMi-20i card is installed, either in a new or existing system, you will have to use
MMC 601 and assign all the SVMi port numbers to the last available station group (Group
Number 5049 by default).
The final step is to do a proper shut down on the SVMi-20i and press the reset button on the
front of the SVMi-20i.
Setting up the SVMi-20i
This section provides the additional steps required to set up the SVMi-20i card for operation in
the OfficeServ 7000 Series telephone system products. Included here is information regarding
the software set up for the phone system.
After inserting the SVMi-20i card and turning the power on there are some key system options
that should be set, in order for the SVMi-20i to function correctly. These steps are performed
in the phone system. It is necessary to perform these at this time so that the SVMi-20i will
initialize properly and synchronize its mailbox database with that of the key system.
Power Up Procedure
Follow the steps below to ensure that the SVMi-20i is properly setup.
Power Up
1. Complete insertion of the SVMi-20i and all other required interface cards and turn the
system power switch ON.
2. There are 8 LEDs on the front SVMi-20i.
The PWR LED will show steady green when the SVMi-20i receiving power from the
OfficeServ 7000 Series Back Plane connectors. The MC LED will show SSD access and
will flicker whenever the SSD is being accessed. The RUN LED will start flicker when the
operating system is loaded. The SVC LED will flicker when the SVMi-20i is ready to
service. When SVC LED is flickering, the application is running and it‟s not safe to power
down the OfficeServ 7000 Series System.

System Programming
Review and perform the following programming steps 1 through 8. It is necessary to perform
these at this time so that the SVMi-20i will read these MMCs and start accordingly.
NOTE: Before moving forward if you want to change any of the SVMi-20i default extension
and mailbox settings it is best to edit your extension and mailbox templates now before
restarting the SVMi-20i.
1. MMC 601: All SVMi-20i ports installed must be assigned to the last station group (by
default the last group number is 5049 in the 7400 and 5039 in the 7200). This should be
identified as BI-VMS group type.
2. MMC 601: Select either SQUENTIAL or DISTRIBUTED ring mode.
3. MMC 207: Confirm that all SVMi-20i ports are set for VMAA use. This will be done
automatically. You are just confirming at this point.
4. MMC 406: If you are using the SVMi-20i for Auto Attendant use MMC 406 to set the
desired analog trunk(s) to ring station group 5049/5039. Use MMC 714 to route the PRI
and SIP trunks.
5. MMC 102: If you are using the SVMi-20i for Voice Mail make sure that all desired
stations are forwarded to station group 5049/5039 for the appropriate call forward
conditions: No-Answer, Busy, and/or ALL.
6. MMC 740: Set “SVM AUTO SETUP” to YES and configure DOWNLOAD OPTIONS.
7. MMC 741: Select “NO” for each station that you DO NOT want to create a mailbox for.
8. MMC 873: Set the IP address, Gateway and Subnet mask of SVMi-20i. SVMi-20i will
restart automatically.
During the reboot process the SVMi-20i will communicate through a series of IPC messages
to the MP to read the MMC data and start the SVMi-20i accordingly.
NOTE: After the SVMi-20i restarts you should change the value of MMC 740 so that it
indicates “SVM AUTO SETUP=NO”. This will prevent the system from overwriting any
future changes you make to the SVMi-20i database.
Testing the Hardware
1. From TDM phone, call each SVMi-20i port individually and confirm that SVMi-20i
answers.
2. Call station group 5049 (OS 7400) or 5039 (OS 72000) and confirm that SVMi-20i
answers.
If steps 1 and 2 above proved to be successful you have completed the installation and
setup of the SVMi-20i hardware.
You are now ready to begin programming of SVMi-20i Voice Mail/Auto Attendant system
parameters.

SVMi-20i Administration Guide
Port Activity
The port activity monitor is an useful tool for diagnosing problems on an installed SVMi-20i.
This will display all activity in real time as it happens and is also being broken up and written
to the Activity, User, and Error logs simultaneously. This activity contains detailed information
for both, Subscriber and Public Caller, call sessions. The viewable monitors are monit, cp, and
debug. When a system is restarted only the monit and cp monitor is on.
To use port acvitity.
1. Log in SVMi-20i via SIO or telnet.
2. Enter the id and password (Default id: admin, password: samsung)
3. Enter „vmcli‟ to run port activity.
4. Press Ctrl+C to exit port activity.
The following commands can be typed to determine how much and what type of information
is displayed:
Port Activity Command
ACTIVITY
Displays the activity log. This is also the same view that can be seen from the operating
utilities menu. It is some times more convenient to enter it from Port Acvitity.
Syntax: ACTIVITY
CP
Turns the Call Progress monitor on or off for one or all ports. When watching the port activity,
the data preceded with a CP represents data reported by the Call Progress monitors. This
monitor can be used alone or with either or both the Monit and debug Monitors.
Syntax: CP [port|ALL|OFF]
DEBUG
Turns the Debugging monitor on or off for one or all ports. This is useful when experiencing
hard to detect problems.
Often you will need to leave this monitor and the CP monitor on and let the system run for a
while. You can then follow the reported information in the Activity,User, and Error Logs for
trouble shooting purposes. Leaving all the monitors on all the time will cause the time period
stored in the logs to be shorter because there is so much more information being reported.
© Samsung Telecommunications America, LLC.
2-43
When watching the port activity or looking through the log files, the data preceded by a DB
represents the data the DEBUG monitors reported. The information reported by the Debug
monitor is often cryptic, but is very useful for the software engineer's when their assistance is
required in troubleshooting a problem.
This monitor can be used alone or with either or both the Monit and debug Monitors.
Syntax: DEBUG [port|ALL|OFF]
IPC
Turns on/off monitoring system communication messages for all or specific ports. Must be
turned off with "OFF" command-not done by maintenance. It may be used in combination
with any of the other monitors.

SVMi-20i Administration Guide
Auto Configuration
The SVMi-20i is designed to simplify the installation procedure and to minimize setup time.
The following is configured automatically by exchanging information between the OfficeServ
running on the main system and the SVMi-20i. Whenever extensions are
created/modified/added/deleted on the OfficeServ running on the main system, the changes are
automatically applied to the SVMi-20i.
A mail box is also created automatically when an extension is created in the OfficeServ
running on the main system. The menu mode for the Day/Night service will change
automatically when the mode of the OfficeServ changes. There are four menu modes in the
SVMi-20i: Day, Night, Holiday, and Bad weather modes where each mode has its own menus
for services.
Quick Setup
Although the set up process has been automated as much as possible, the following must be
performed manually.

Record greetings for the Day Mode operation (prompt number 1001), the Night Mode
operation (prompt number 1002), and optionally the Holiday and Bad Weather Modes
(prompt numbers 1003 and 1004 respectively).

Give everyone the user instructions and have them enter a new personal password
[#][7][1], record their name [#][7][2], enter their directory name (Last and First
names) [#][7][3], and record both a Primary (No-Answer Greeting) [5][1] and
Mailbox Greeting [5][7].

System Administration
There are two levels of administration. Individual or personal administration can be performed
by each subscriber, and system administration must be performed by the system administrator
at a higher level for both subscribers and the system.
Subscriber
A subscriber is someone who has an extension and/or a mailbox on the SVMi-20i. Each
subscriber has control over individual options on his or her mailbox and extension settings.
Each subscriber (mailbox owner) will have previlege of setting or changing certain mailbox
options. The mailbox owner will use DTMF subscriber administration to change and set these
options.
System Administrator
A field technician who installs the system or the system administrator has ultimate authority
over the operation of the SVMi-20i and can set or change all the options that require
specialized knowledge. It is the responsibility of the installing technician to install and
program the SVMi-20i to suit the customer‟s requirements. This includes initial set up and
creation of the customer database. The technician will use the management interface to
program and set up the SVMi-20i. All system administration will be performed using a web
management. Some limited system administration can be performed via DTMF. This is limited
to recording system prompts, entering subscriber administration, changing the operating mode
(Day, Night, Holiday, and Weather) of the System, and shutting down the system.

SVMi-20i Administration Guide
Open Block Table
The block table is used for building the SVMi-20i call routing applications.
This is the most frequently accessed area in the SVMi-20i and determines its behavior when it
is routing calls. All the prompts and options offered to callers are programmed here.
Because most of the configuration, for any customer, will usually be in the block Tables, they
will be explained in detail separately in the next section.
© Samsung Telecommunications America, LLC.
3-57
Save Application
If changes are made to the customer database, they are live and immediate. However, they are
not immediately saved to disk. Saving the changes to disk will only take place if one of the
following conditions is met:

The administrator reboots the system after gracefully exiting using „Operating Utilities‟ and
„Shutdown System‟.

The nightly maintenance runs. This occurs every day at 3 am.

The administrator selects „Save Application‟ from the System Main Menu.
The Save Application option forces the changes to be written to the disk immediately. This
will ensure that if the system loses power between the time that the changes are made and the
nightly maintenance, the changes will be preserved.
- For saving this data, the SVMi-20i locks its ports temporarily.
Any idle ports are immediately locked. As ports become free, they are also locked.
When all ports are locked, the data will be saved and the ports will be placed back
online.
- Changes of the customer database and messages in a mailbox are not saved to disk
immediately. It takes one or ten minutes in worst case according the priority. So,
shutdown the system gracefully or run „Save Application‟ before turning off the system.
The system will gracefully lock all ports before performing the save.
If any port is off-hook or engaged in a call, the system will wait until the caller hangs up
before locking that port.

SVMi-20i Administration Guide
Schedule Table
The Schedule Table determines when the SVMi-20i will automatically change its modes. A
mode is a set of operating rules set for a specific situation, like DAY Mode or NIGHT Mode.
These changes may be based on Port Number, Date, Day of Week, and Time of Day. The
Schedule Table contains one record for each scheduled change.
This selection of modes may be automatically set by the schedule table or manually
overridden via a touch tone phone, using the MANUAL MODE SELECTION function.When
a call comes in, the schedule table is checked to find out which mode rules must be applied to
the call session.
If the entry says „SYSTEM AUTO‟, then the SVMi-20i will change between Mode 1 (Day
Mode) and Mode 2 (Night Mode) whenever the phone system changes between Day and Night
operation. The SVMi-20i selects a mode from this schedule based on the order of precedence.
For instance, when the schedule table entries select the mode, Date takes precedence over Day
of Week (DOW). Each entry defines the start time for that specific mode. The mode will
continue until the next scheduled start time for a particular port.
In the example screen shown, if an additional entry is made which selects Holiday Mode,
when Date = 12/25, it will take precedence over the other records. In other words, the SVMi20i will switch to Holiday Mode on December 25 at Midnight, regardless what Day of Week it
is.
The information contained within the Schedule Table screen shown in this section is for
discussion and display purposes only.
One page contains the Schedule Table parameters. The parameters are grouped by category as
follows:

Description
Mode
Name
This is the mode block which will start the application. To create a new
mode, press ADD button. Select a new or existing mode block. The Mode
Name column is automatically filled in. To finish scheduling this mode, fill in
the rest of the line with the following information.
Ports
The port number (1 through 20) sets a mode change for a particular port.
If there are no other entries in the Schedule Table for this port, it will run
the specified mode continuously. If this field is set to „All‟, this entry will be
used by all ports which do not have specific port entries. Ultimately the
schedule is assigned to a port or group of ports. If you have an entry for
ALL ports to go into the Holiday Mode and an entry for ports 5-6 to go into
the Emergency Service Mode at the same Date, DOW (Day of Week),
and/or Time, then ports 5 and 6 will NOT follow the mode setting set for
ALL ports. They will go into Emergency Service mode and stay there until a
scheduled mode which includes or addresses ports 5-6 specifically is
applied.
Date
Month and day of month (mm/dd) when the change of mode will occur.
If a date is entered in this field, no option will be given to make an entry in
the DOW (Day of Week) field. This entry will take a higher order of
precedence over records based on DOW only on the date specified.
Therefore, to guarantee a particular mode setting over a three day period,
a date entry should be created for each day of that period.
Week
day
Day of Week when a mode change is to occur regularly on specific day of
the week. Either the Date or Weekday column may be filled in. If you
should manage to make entries in both columns, the SVMi-20i will resolve
the conflict and automatically delete one of them. You can select ranges
such as „MON-FRI‟ to cover week days only or „SUN-SAT‟ to cover all
seven days (as used by SYSTEM AUTO).
Start
The Hour and Minute when a change in mode should occur. The hour must
be specified in 24 Hr. format (i.e., 1:30 pm is entered as 13:30).

Description
Subscriber
PSWD Min
Length
This parameter defines the minimum number of digits used in a
subscriber‟s password. A password can be equal to or larger than
this value.
If this value is changed to a larger value on a running system,
subscribers will be forced to change their password to one that
meets these requirements the next time they log in. The system
will prevent them from doing anything including listening to new
messages until they first change their password to meet the
minimum requirements. If „0‟ is set, there is no minimum password
length. Valid values can be set from 0 to 8. The default is 0.
System Admin
This affects the TUI (Telephony User Interface) access. This
password along with the remote login procedure gives the
administrator access to recording system prompts and overriding
the scheduling by engaging a specific mode.
Min Recorded
Length
This parameter sets the minimum record time that is to be
considered valid. It is specified in hundreds of seconds. A setting
of 50 means 0.5 seconds or 500 milliseconds. The default value is
100. If this value is too high, short recordings will be discarded. If it
is too low, the system will consider disconnects as a valid
recording.

Description
Host ID
Enter the IP address of the host mail server that the SVMi-20i will
use to send the email error reports to the system administrator.
Port
The default (recommended) port to use is 25. Most mail servers
use port 25 for receiving and sending mails.
SMTP User ID
(Optional)
This is the User ID the SVMi-20i will use to log on to the mail
server and identify itself as a client associated with sending mails.
Password
(Optional)
This is the password associated with the SVMi-20i‟s User ID for
logging into the mail server.
Domain
(Optional)
The Domain is used as part of the authentication process between
the SVMi-20i and the mail server. Based on the Local Domain
Name and Domain ID, the mail server can validate the client
before accepting mails.
This server
requires an
encrypted
connection(SS
L/TLS)
If a mail server requires an encrypted connection with SSL/TLS,
this option should be set to Yes.
Type of
encrypted
connection
Two types of connection are supported.
TLS: The client issues a STARTTLS command. If the server
accepts this, the client and the server negotiate an encryption
mechanism.
SSL: Encryption negotiation starts immediately without STARTTLS
command.
Report
If an email fails to be delivered or is rejected by the mail server
(sending an email stops after the total number of attempts
parameter in the MCLASS has been exceeded), a failure
notification message is generated and sent to the recipient (s)
entered in this field. This is usually the on-site system
administrator or IT administrator. The recipient could be an off-site
administrator as well.
Reply To
Many mail servers will require a valid „Reply To:‟ address. Emails
with a blank or non-formatted „Reply To:‟ could be considered
SPAM and blocked by the server. This parameter only applies to
emails that do not have a valid or known „From:‟ address, as in a
public caller. See the Mailbox block „From:‟ parameter of an
individual subscriber for creating valid „From:‟ addresses for
subscribers sending voice messages to other subscribers.
Time Zone
This is used to select the Time Zone, from the list, associated with
where the SVMi-20i is installed. The default Time Zone is „Eastern

License Key
Description
Enter the license key. The license key is made up of 5 eight
character segments separated by a hyphen. This field is case
sensitive and you must enter the hyphens between segments.
With no license key entered the system is authorized for a
maximum 5 E-mail gateway enabled mailboxes.
Optional parameters are associated with authentication to the mail server. Mail servers that are
on a local network often do not require authentication.
Report
If the LAN is down, or the SMTP Server is down, or for numerous other network failures,
it may not be possible for the SVMi-20i to notify the administrator of a failure.
Reply To
Mails sent with this „Reply To:‟ address should be blocked by the IT administrator or
sent to a inbox that dumps it‟s data during preventative maintenance. Keep in mind that
voice messages sent by public callers cannot be replied to via email. The only purpose
for this parameter is to take care of the requirements dictated by some mail servers.
EMAIL ADDRESS SYNTAX
An email address can be entered in a couple of ways.
A traditional email syntax is username@mailserverdomain.domainsuffix (domain suffix can
be: .com, .net, .org, etc…). In this case, the name entered as the mailbox label name will be
displayed in the Inbox „From‟ field if the voice message was sent from a subscriber to another
subscriber. If you do not want the recipient to see the label name as it is typed, you can use the
following syntax:
Firstname Lastname <username@mailserverdomain.domainsuffix>
or
Department name <username@mailserverdomain.domainsuffix>
This applies to all fields that accept an email address:

Select Group.
Select the Group Number that the subscribers will be listed under.
Group Numbers are convenient for organizing large sets of subscribers into specific groups.
In such cases, several subscribers may have the same extension or mailbox number or the
organization may wish to restrict transfers between the different groups. Because the SVMi20i does not allow the same extension or mailbox number to be used more than once in a
group, and only allows transfers between members of the same group, it is strongly
recommended that all subscribers use Group 01.

View System Report
Management Information
The SVMi-20i provides a large number of counters to track specific events occurring in an
application and on a system wide basis. This allows an administrator to quickly view activity
and parameter value settings.
The SVMi-20i offers activity data and parameter value settings that provide management
information on volume of calls, call connect time, messaging status, and resource utilization.
Note that there are many applications that introduce complexity to the reporting process. For
instance, blind transfers will generate a call record when the SVMi-20i answers and then
another record when the station forwards or recalls (i.e., two records are generated for one
call). Also the calculations are made by each module of software and may seem to be
inconsistent sometimes. For this reason,we suggest you use these reports as a guideline only or
to observe trends over time. We can explain how each number is generated, but because each
application is different, we may not be able to explain apparent inconsistencies.

Explanation of Default Configuration
Application Design
Creating an application consists of linking appropriate blocks into a set of call control paths
which, for a particular caller or group of callers, represents a call routing solution. The number
of control paths needed to establish a proper routing solution depends upon how many
alternatives or variations the organization wishes to provide to satisfy anticipated needs of a
caller (s).
The default application is built using blocks. Each block has a specific purpose and they are
chained together to build an application.
This allows a caller to pass from one to the other as the call is processed.
The default configuration in the SVMi-20i has been designed to simplify installation and
reduce the amount of time it takes to learn the application. Many of the configuration options
have been disabled or fixed at a default value. When a call is answered, it is processed by a
number of blocks behind the scenes. These blocks are hidden for the sake of simplicity.
The call is processed in the following way:
NEW CO (Central Office) CALLS
New calls are answered by the PORT block which consult the SCHEDULE Table to see which
MODE block should take control of the call session.
The MODE block will then pass control to one of the MENU blocks, based on call type. This
may have sounded complicated but is quite simple.
By default, all of the configurations are done for you. Most of the applications for a customer
actually starts at the MENU block. Knowledge of how the call is routed through the system
will help you create more complex applications only when and/or if necessary.
Depending on the current mode (Day, Night, Holiday, or Weather), a custom company greeting
is played and a caller is directed to any other block in the system based on the DTMF input.
The below call routing solution chart displays the communication links and connections
between each of the blocks in the system.

SVMi-20i Administration Guide
FORWARDED CALLS
Forworded calls follow the same initial call flow as stated above.
Their call type is identified as a forwarded call and the call is passed to a MENU block that
handles forwarded calls. This MENU block does not speak to the caller but simply looks at the
Forward ID of the call and transfers the caller to an appropriate subscriber‟s personal greeting.
Based on the subscriber‟s greeting, the caller may leave a message, route himself or herself to
another subscriber, return to the main menu, or simply hang up.
Import Basic Concepts
The configuration concept of the SVMi-20i is a series of blocks, Pointers, and Objects
configured together to create a call routing solution for specific member (s) of a
TeleCommunity.
Blocks
Blocks are components used to build an individual customer application.
All call flow is programmed using these blocks. Each block type has a specific function, and
can be chained together with other blocks to provide a complete call processing solution.
Announcement Block
Houses up to 15 minutes of recorded voice information for playback in an
audiotex application. It is associated with and managed by an Audiotex
Librarian.
Audiotex Librarian Block
Manages the Announcement Blocks, that together forms its Audiotex Library.
On-demand, it finds and plays the caller specified Announcement(s).Manages
Announcement Block retention, recording length and authorizations, and

Directory Block
This is a utility that sets up necessary parameters used in the subscriber‟s directory list.
Document Librarian Block
Manages the Fax Blocks, that together forms its FAX or Document Library. On-demand, it
finds and faxes back to the caller specified Fax(s). Manages Fax Block retention, recording
length and authorizations, and caller replay options. It also controls the caller's path through its
library.
EClass Block
This is a class of service block for extensions, and contains additional permissions that apply
to all extensions in this class.
Extension Block
This represents a subscriber to a caller. It houses subscriber‟s settings, personal greetings, and
call coverage controls such as call blocking and screening.
It contains caller option processor and designated location facility for routing callers to a
subscriber‟s current telephone, regardless of physical location. Multiple subscribers, each with
their own extension object, can effectively share a single telephone.
Fax Block
Associated with Fax-On-Demand applications and is used in conjunction with
the Document Librarian.
List Block

MClass Block
This is a class of service block for mailboxes, and contains additional permissions that apply
to all mailboxes in this class.
Menu Block
This speaks prompts to a caller and routes the call based on the caller entry. The Auto
Attendant main menu is an example of a menu block.
Mode Block
This answers incoming calls for assigned port (s) by mode, as assigned in the Schedule Table.
It collects and stores CallData in appropriate call session memory registers. It can speak
salutation prompts.
Net Mailbox Block
Receives, records, and sends, multimedia messages. Contains default personal
greeting, name and password for the subscriber. This block contains all the
parameters for the subscriber's mailbox that would reside in another system.
Follows the AMIS standard.
Port Block
This contains all parameters to connect and communicate with a device the SVMi-20i is
directly attached to. For most applications, changes to this block are not required. It is used to
identify how a call is disconnected.
Query Block
This sends a question/statement in voice and expects to record a voice and or DTMF response.
It delivers recorded response to one or more mailboxes for transcription.
Speak Block
The purpose of the speak block is to announce a prompt or system information to the caller.
The speak block can contain two prompts in addition to the ability of announcing system
information or register contents.
After announcing to the caller, control is passed to another block based on the target of the
NEXT pointer.

Station Block
The station block is responsible for dialing. When the SVMi-20i dials or transfers any calls, it
uses the station block. All devices accessible via Touch-Tone dialing on the SVMi-20i use at
least one of these. Each contains call progress information to monitor and processes calls to
the associated device (s).
Extension and Mailbox Objects
On the SVMi-20i, subscribers are defined by both extension blocks and mailbox blocks. An
extension block is responsible for playing an appropriate personal greeting and performing all
transfers. It may initiate any hold conditions, park, and other caller options. Through the
access manager, you can control call screening, forwarding, blocking, find me, and follow me.
It is the main component that callers will experience when they dial an extension number and
it provides a subscriber with a collection of management tools and personal services including
workload manager, availability schedule, stored phone numbers, and direct calling.
The mailbox block is far more simple. It is used primarily for two things: recording messages
and notification. Each subscriber may have one or both blocks.

SVMi-20i Administration Guide
Call Directors
Call Directors are powerful tools used to connect the various blocks together. All blocks that
pass control of a call to another block use Call Directors.
Call Directors pass control of a call to the next block. Which block they pass control to is
dependent on certain conditions, called events, that have occurred within the current block.
Events may include no entry, invalid entry, no message left, operator requested, and user exit.
There are many possible events and they will vary depending on the type of block being
programmed.
In a Menu block, the Call Director is called the „Menu Input Processor‟ and also acts on data
entered by a caller.
In an Extension block, the Call Director is called the „Caller Options Processor‟ and also acts
on data entered by a caller.
In a Mode block, the Call Director is called the „Call Code Processor‟ and also acts on call
type data received from the system.
The Bye block and the Station block do not have Call Directors, as they are considered the end
of a call control path.
Event Pointers
A Call Director uses EVENT POINTERS to pass control of a call to the next block. All
EVENT POINTERS consist of an INPUT value, an ACTION, a Block TYPE, and a TARGET.
An INPUT value is a collection of digits, whether received from a caller via DTMF, telephone
system or network integration information, collected in the block. An ACTION is that which
takes place when input from a caller equals the INPUT value. TYPE is a type of block to pass
control to. There are five types of ACTIONS: GOTO, TRANSLATE, PASSWORD, SEARCH
ON, and FILE. The TARGET is the name of the block to pass control to next.
Modes
At any time of the day, the SVMi-20i is in a specific operating mode.
This may be as simple as Day Mode (business hour) or Night Mode (business closed), or it can
be very complex (Special Mode for Port 2 Only, on July 19th between 7 and 8 p.m.). New
modes may be added as needed. The times that operating modes are effective are defined in
the Schedule Table.
The behavior of the SVMi-20i when it answers a new call during each specific operating mode
is defined in the Mode block.
The SVMi-20i can be made to change modes either manually, by using special administrative
commands, or automatically as specified in the Schedule Table.
© Samsung Telecommunications America, LLC.
3-97
Mode Specific Event Pointers
When configuring any block that defines event targets (exit points from the block), the SVMi20i will first ask you to select a mode. This allows exit destinations to be different for each
mode. For example, the next pointer might access an announcement informing callers of
special daytime sales events in the „Day‟ Mode, but after 5:00 p.m., it would pass control to a
different announcement about evening shopping hours, in the „Night‟ Mode.
(The SVMi-20i does not support announcement feature.)
Pointers set in the „Default‟ mode are always in effect unless the same pointer is set in another
operating mode. The SVMi-20i will display „Default‟ mode pointers in a block while
displaying pointers in another mode.
The „Default‟ mode pointers will be grayed out to denote that they are not in the current mode.
Each operating mode is given an unique number by the system. Valid numbers are 01-99, and
are assigned in sequence as new modes are created.
Pressing ENTER at this field opens a pointer mode target generator, from which an existing
mode name may be selected or a new name may be entered. Entering a new name creates a
new mode with its corresponding number.
The mode number and name are associated with the block‟s pointers, but not the block itself.
This allows one block to route calls to different destinations in different modes, using different
targets for the pointers‟ various mode references.
Template Blocks
To simplify creating multiple blocks of a given type, the SVMi-20i provides a template for
each type of block. Templates have default values preset for many of their parameters. You
may change these default values and save the modified template or create a new block of that
type by using the „Save As...‟ option while preserving the original template. Each time a block
is created, it will be initialized with the parameter values which are set in the template.
This is particularly useful when building mailbox and extension blocks for subscribers, where
many of the parameter settings will be uniform across subscribers.

Configuration Blocks
Announcement Block
An Announcement Block contains recorded voice information. Each block may contain up to
15 minutes of recorded voice information for playback in an audiotext application. After
playing the announcement, control is passed to the target of the NEXT pointer. This is either
another announcement block, or back to the Audiotext Librarian Block controlling this
announcement application. Each block, or group of announcement blocks, is associated
with and managed by an Audiotext Librarian.The Announcement Block is commonly used to
speak information to the caller which is updated on a regular basis.
To play an announcement block, a menu is used to collect digits from the caller that match the
number of the announcement block, and then the menu block passes control to an Audiotext
Librarian.The Audiotext Librariancalls the announcement that matches the digits entered by
the caller.
Announcements may be up to 15 minutes long and can easily be added or changed by an
authorized person calling from any Touch-Tone phone..

Audiotex Librarian Block
This provides the control for Announcement Blocks.
The Audiotext Librarian controls all the prompting and parameters used when recording and
playing back announcements. This information includes the allowed length of the message and
the number of days it will be retained.The Audiotext Librarian Block is used in conjunction
with a Menu Block to disseminate information.This block does not contain pointers to
nnouncement blocks.To play an announcement block, a menu is used to collect digits from the
caller that match the number of the announcement block, and then the menu block passes
control to an Audiotext Librarian. The Audiotext Librarian calls the announcement that
matched the digits entered by the caller. There is no limit to the number of Announcement
Blocks a Librarian may manage. Also, an individual Announcement Block may be accessed
through different Librarians.
This is useful for setting different control conditions for the person administering the
recordings.The Librarian determines when an announcement should be discarded, based on
either elapsed time, or how many times it should be played. The retention time may also be
reinitialized each time the Announcement plays.These controls assure the information
available is always current. The CallDirector section of the Audiotext Librarian uses Event
Pointers to pass control of the caller after the appropriate announcements have played.

The Wild Card Digit is used to play a set of announcements in a
contiguous series whose Announcement Block Numbers all match
the wild card specification. Announcements play without pause in
ascending numeric order.
Example: When callers enter any number from 500 through 599,
the menu translates this entry to 5## (if # is the wild card digit).The
caller then hears all announcements in blocks having numbers
that are 3 digits in length and begin with the digit '5'.

Dial Block
The functions of a DIAL block are to perform a dialing operation and then either release the
call or branch to another block, based on the outcome of the dialing operation. This block is
commonly used to transfer callers to an operator for assistance.
It does not have extensive automated attendant features of an Extension block. However, it is
useful for transferring calls to another system such as a dictation system, answering machine,
FAX machine, MODEM, and paging terminal. It can also be used to facilitate special features
that a telephone system may lack, such as DISA (Direct Inward System Access), a feature
which enables employees at remote locations (e.g., their homes, a telephone booth, or a
customer‟s office) to use their company‟s system to process telephone calls, or least cost
routing of outgoing long distance calls.
DIAL blocks may also be used in conjunction with an Extension block to create various types
of extension hunt groups. This is accomplished by setting up Event Pointers in the blocks to
hunt through designated extensions until an appropriate service provider is located.
Each Dial block is associated with a Station block which can be used to provide circuitspecific cadence filtering for unique remote (off premises) devices like answering machines,
fax machines, tie lines, auto-attendant or voicemail systems, excessively noisy trunks, paging
systems, or even attendant consoles. The Dial block can play a prompt to a caller prior to
connecting a call, and can activate a variety of other call processing or service provider objects,
based on the configuration of its event pointers.

„*‟, „#‟, „a‟, „b‟, „c‟, „d‟, „&‟, „;‟, „,‟, and „W‟. You can also enter SVMi-20i
registers containing numeric data. When using register information as
part of a dialing sequence, the register character is always preceded by
a „$‟ sign.
Supervision
This is how a call is handled when transferred. Press ENTER to select
one of the following options:
- NONE: This is a blind transfer. A blind transfer indicates that
once a call is transferred, the system no longer monitors the call
for any subsequent condition.
- PARTIAL: This is used when the call is transferred and the
system checks to identify if that line is busy.
- FULL: This is used when a call is transferred and the system
stays on the line to make sure the call was answered or not
answered (NO-ANSWER).
Station Type
This is an area where call progress parameters are set up as
referred to in the opening paragraphs of this block. You can assign
a necessary station type to fit appropriate conditions needed to be

Operating
Mode
This displays the Mode name and number for which the displayed
block pointers‟ targets are active. Each operating mode is given a
unique number by the system. Valid numbers are 01-99, and are
assigned in sequence as new modes are created. Pressing ENTER at
this field opens a mode target generator, from which an existing mode
name may be selected, or a new name may be entered. Entering a
new name creates a new mode with its corresponding number. The
mode number and name are associated with the block‟s pointers, but
not the block itself. This allows one block to route calls to different
destinations in different modes, using different targets for the pointers‟
various mode references. For example, the No-Answer pointer might
route callers to an operator‟s extension in the „Day‟ Mode, but after
5:00 PM, it would route them to a Night Options menu in the „Night‟
Mode.
Pointers set in the Default mode are always in effect unless the same
pointer is set in the current operating mode. The SVMi-20i will display
default mode pointers in a block while displaying pointers in another
mode. The default mode pointers will be grayed out to denote that
they are not in the current mode.

This is the maximum number of names that a caller may enter if
no match is found on the digits that the caller entered.
If this occurs, it is considered an INVALID entry.
Maximum
number of
matches
This is the number of names played to a caller if more than one
name matches the entry. The number can be between 1 and 8.
Search based
on first name
When an extension is set up, generally people are listed by last
name, comma, and first name.
This parameter determines which part of the name (label) that will
be searched for a match. For example, a name is entered in the
subscriber list as Smith, John. If this value is set to N (no), the
directory will search Smith.
If this value is set to Y (yes), the directory will search John.
Include
unnamed
objects
If this parameter is set to YES, search targets with no recorded
name will be included in the directory listing to be played to a
caller. In this case, the SVMi-20i announces the number of the
search target. This could, for example, be an extension or mailbox
number.
Speak name
on exit
If this parameter is set to YES, the selected object‟s name is
played to a caller prior to exiting the directory.
If no name is recorded, the selected object‟s number is played to
the caller. This could, for example, be an extension or mailbox
number.
Speak key
value on exit
If this parameter is set to YES, the selected object‟s number is
played to the caller prior to exiting the directory.
Verify before
exit
If this parameter is set to YES, the system requests the caller to
confirm the object selection before transferring the caller to that
object. If it is set to NO, confirmation is not needed.
Type
This is a list of the block type priorities for this particular directory
system to search. By default, the directory will search for
extensions first and then mailboxes.

Document Librarian Block
A Document Librarian manages the fax blocks whose documents together form its fax library.
Its primary mission is to make sure the fax library is not outdated; and the caller gets a copy of
the fax documents he is authorized to receive when and where he wants them.
The Document Librarian Block does not contain the fax documents themselves, nor does it
house the documents. Instead, it is a management object that acts as a 'gateway', controlling
access to the Information Container Objects known as Fax Blocks. Its Personality page
determines whether individual subscribers are authorized to modify its documents and sets the
password controlling an administrator's telephone access to recording the voice label. If so
authorized, the administrator may create Fax Blocks over the phone, in addition to editing or
deleting the documents.
There is no limit to the number of Fax Blocks a Librarian may manage. Also, and individual
Fax Block may be accessed through different Document Librarians.The Librarian determines
when a document should be discarded based on either elapsed time, or how many times it
should be transmitted.The retention time my also be reinitialized each time the fax document
is transmitted.These controls assure the information available is always current.

Get more
The digit callers may use to select more than one document during
the current call. If left blank, only one document may be requested
per call - unless a wild card is used to select a set of documents.
Wildcard
The Wild Card Digit is used to access a set of fax documents in a
continuous series whose Fax Block Numbers all match the wild
card specification. Faxes are selected in ascending numeric order.
Example: When callers enter any number from 500 through 599,
the Menu translates this entry to 5## (if # is the wild card digit).
The caller then receives all faxes in Blocks having numbers that
are 3 digits in length and begin with the digit '5'. Be sure this digit
is not the same as that used for Admin. Any digit on the phone
keypad is valid.
Admin
The digit used to signal SVMi-20i that the caller wishes to perform
administrative functions (delete or replace existing faxes, input
new documents, edit Voice Labels). It is not included in the length
of the Admin. Password. To prevent unauthorized access, it may
be desirable to disable the option by leaving the field blank in
Librarians providing regular caller access. Create a separate
Librarian in the same Fax Group to allow administrative access.
Escape
The Escape digit (normally the '*' key) causes an immediate exit
from fax selection. When the Escape digit is pressed SVMi-20i will
not wait for subsequent digits to be pressed, but goes immediately
to the Target of the active Escape Pointer.
Operator
The digit callers may press to abort the fax application and go
directly to an operator or other live assistant. This is not the actual
extension or telephone number to be dialed, only the single digit
used to select the option. If the field is left blank, the option is not
announced to the caller.
This call
The digit a caller is prompted to press to receive selected
documents during the current call (assumes caller is calling from
handset of fax machine). If this field is blank, and a digit is set in
the 'Call Back' field, no option to receive during this call will be
provided.
Call back
The digit a caller is prompted to press to request fax delivery via a
later Call Back. Setting digits for this field and 'This Call' allows the
caller to choose which delivery method they prefer. If left blank,
only 'This Call' will be available.

MORE
If a caller presses the digit for Get More documents, this pointer's
Target Block receives control. It would normally be the same Menu
from which the caller originally entered the fax application. In a
large document Library, it might be a Menu of Document Subjects.
OPERATOR
This pointer should specify the Extension or Dial Block for the
person to whom the caller will be transferred if they press the digit
for human assistance. It should always be answered by a person,
not a Mailbox!
NO-ENTRY
If a caller does not enter a digit when prompted to select an option,
this pointer's Target will take control. In cases where option
prompts are repeated more than one time, this may mean the
caller hung up, but SVMi-20i has not yet received a disconnect
signal. A Bye Block would be an appropriate Target in such cases,
otherwise an Extension might be used.
INVALID
Multiple invalid entries by a caller may indicate 'hacking', or simply
a confused caller. The Target for this pointer is usually an
Extension to provide human assistance for the latter case. The
Invalid Pointer provides active prevention of hacking unlike
passive logging devices which only document these attempts.

EClass Block
The ECLASS (Class of Service) block is an expansion or extension of service parameters
which pertain to an extension block. All extension blocks are associated with one ECLASS
block.
ECLASS blocks specify the voice prompts and operating parameters to be used when
transferring calls to extension blocks and what to do in the event of a failed transfer (ring-noanswer or busy). It authorizes subscribers to make outbound calls. There is no limit to the
number of extension blocks that the ECLASS block may be associated with. The operating
modes in the CallDirector section of the ECLASS block provide a flexibility to handle calls
differently for various modes of operation (typically at different times of the day). The
CallDirector uses Event Pointers to pass control of the caller.

may not be the same as another block name. MBX, EXT, or LIST
numbers may not be duplicated within the same group.
The SVMi-20i stores the subscriber name in either „lastname,
firstname‟ or „firstname lastname‟. When entering the subscriber
name, it is suggested that you follow one format or the other for
the entire application. If the name is entered as „firstname
lastname‟, the SVMi-20i will NOT automatically re-sort it to
„lastname, firstname‟, but the subscriber would still be able to be
accessed correctly from the directory. However, by mixing
different formats within an application would cause the list of
blocks to appear to be out of order.
This format („lastname, firstname‟ vs „firstname lastname‟) is
important because the directory feature will search on a specific
field, „lastname‟ or „firstname‟. If you did not put a comma after
the „lastname‟ in the „lastname, firstname‟ format or put a comma
after „firstname‟ in the „firstname lastname‟ format, the directory
search would not be accurate and subscribers entered out of

The number that must be entered by the caller in order to access
the subscriber extension. It does not necessarily have to be the
same number dialed by the SVMi-20i when transferring to the
extension.
This cannot be the same number of any other extension, and is
also referred to as the „Key‟ Value.
Mailbox
The mailbox corresponding to the subscriber Extension block.
Entering a Mailbox block here indicates that this extension owns
the specified mailbox.
Eclass
The name of the EClass block that contains the class of service
information for this Extension. Much of the prompts, control, and
parameters are located here. See the EClass block for detailed
information and operation.
Language
This is a language option. You may select from any installed
language and from that point on, the extension will respond to
the authorized owner in the language selected. Authorized owner
means a user who has entered a valid password. The mailbox
block also has a language field, and the SVMi-20i will try to
resolve these fields so that they are identical. If conflicting
information is contained in these fields, the Extension block has
priority and the Mailbox block will be automatically changed to
match. This selection is based on the order of the defined
languages in the System Wide Parameters described earlier. If
the languages are to be reordered, added to, or changed, then
this field should be re-entered.

SVMi-20i Administration Guide
Item
Description
Dial Number
The actual number that the SVMi-20i will dial to complete the
transfer. The SVMi-20i associates two types of numbers with an
extension: the block identification number called the Key and the
Dial Number.
The Key is the number that the caller enters for a particular
called party‟s telephone.
The Dial Number is the number that the system database
recognizes as one of its stations. When the SVMi-20i receives
the Key from the caller, it transmits the Dial Number to the
system to execute the transfer to the called party‟s telephone.
The Key and the Dial Number are usually the same, but they can
be different. When they are different, the extension is a virtual
extension.
A virtual extension can be configured with the same set of call
automation attributes as a regular extension. It is particularly
useful when a group of people in an organization share a single
telephone. Each person in the group can be assigned his own
Key in the SVMi-20i subscriber database.
The Dial Number, however, will be the same for each virtual
extension.
This allows callers to enter a distinctive Key for each member of
the group, even though they ring the same telephone. A call
presentation prompt can be customized for each virtual
extension subscriber; for example, „Call for John Smith,‟ or „Call
for Jane Doe‟.
Alternate
Number
The SVMi-20i has a feature that a subscriber can enter an
alternate location and all calls processed by the extension block
will be transferred to this alternate number. This number can be
an internal number (other extension) or an external number like
the subscriber‟s home number. The designated location option
must be set to „Yes‟ to use this feature.
When calls are transferred to a designated location (alternate
number), the SVMi-20i will supervise the transfer, i.e. it will
monitor the call progress until the call is answered. If the call is
not answered, it will be routed to the destination specified in this
extension block‟s call director, for the no- answer event.
Supervision
Level
This sets the type of transfer that this extension block uses to
transfer callers.
- NONE (BLIND TRANSFER): The SVMi-20i transfers the call,
releases, and doesn‟t wait for any subsequent condition.
- PARTIAL (Supervise for Busy): SVMi-20i transfers the call, and
waits to see if it gets one valid ring. If it hears a valid ring, it
releases, and doesn‟t wait for any subsequent condition. If it
does not hear a valid ring, it aborts the transfer, pulling the call
back and follows the Extension block‟s „Busy‟ call condition rules.
This can be to play the subscriber‟s Busy Greeting if recorded,
play their Primary Greeting if recorded, or be directed to the

Description
CallDirector to ask where to send the call for that call condition.
- FULL (SUPERVISED): The SVMi-20i transfers the call and
waits until the call is answered. If the call is not answered (NOANSWER), the call transfer is aborted, pulling the call back and
follows the extension block‟s „No-Answer‟ call condition rules.
This can be to play the subscriber‟s Primary/No-Answer
Greeting if recorded, or be directed to the CallDirector to ask
where to send the call for that call condition.
Each of the next supervision levels are simply Full Supervision
levels with added functionality beneficial for the subscriber being
called.
- PROMPT: A prompted supervision level performs a Full
Supervision call transfer. If the call is answered, the SVMi-20i
plays the following prompt to the called party, „Transferring a call‟
after the answering party says „hello‟.
This is simply trying to identify that the call is being transferred
by the SVMi-20i.
- ANNOUNCE: This supervision level is very similar to the
Prompted supervision. In this case, the called party hears,
„There is a call for Extension 2001‟ or „There is a call for Jane
Doe.‟ After that, the call is handled in the same manner as a Full
Supervision transfer.
- CONFIRM: This level not only performs an Announced
Supervision but also now allows the subscriber the option of
accepting, redirecting, rejecting, or recording a real time greeting
for the call. If the call is rejected, it is considered to be a „blocked‟
call condition. The call transfer is aborted, pulling the call back
and follows the extension block‟s „blocked‟ call condition rules.
This can be to play the subscriber‟s blocked Greeting if
recorded, to play Primary Greeting if recorded, or to be directed
to the CallDirector to ask where to send the call for that call
condition.
This level of supervision is automatically used in „Designated
location‟, „Follow Me‟, and „Find Me‟ applications or whenever
the Alternate Number Field is used.
- SCREEN: The system requests the name of the caller, rings
the subscriber and announces who is calling. The subscriber has
the option of accepting, redirecting, rejecting, or recording a real
time greeting for the call.
If the call is rejected, it is considered to be a „blocked‟ call
condition.
The call transfer is aborted, pulling the call back and follows the
extension block‟s „blocked‟ call condition rules. This can be to
play the subscriber‟s blocked Greeting if recorded, to play
Primary Greeting if recorded, or to be directed to the CallDirector
to ask where to send the call for that call condition.

both an Extension block and a Mailbox block (but may have only
one of them). Since each of these blocks have a password
option, if different password values are entered in each of these
blocks (extension and mailbox), the SVMi-20i will try to resolve
these two password fields into one value. The extension
password will override the value in the mailbox field. Valid entries

Description
Blocking
Call blocking will prevent any calls from being transferred to your
extension or designated location. You may think of it as a DND
feature. It will override all call transfer instructions (follow me,
forward, find me, etc.), but it will not override call screening.
A „Y‟ in this field allows the subscriber to set Call blocking for
their extension. An „N‟ in this field disables the option and it will
not be spoken as an option in the extension user menu.
The „enabled‟ field shows if this option is currently set. This
setting must be „Y‟ to allow a subscriber to set this greeting. This
option can only be set by the subscriber if the extension has
Greeting type of „Basic‟.
Call forwarding
A „Y‟ in this parameter allows the subscriber to remotely redirect
calls to another extension. An „N‟ in this parameter disables the
option and it will not be spoken as an option in the extension
user menu. The „enabled‟ field shows if this option is currently
set. If you „enable‟ this feature here, you must also assign a
destination to the Remote-Fwd pointer in the Extension block call
director page. When this feature is activated, the SVMi-20i will
perform a blind transfer and the control of the call will then be
passed to the forward destination.

SVMi-20i Administration Guide
Item
Description
Call screening
A „Y‟ in this parameter allows the subscriber to set call screening
for their extension. The SVMi-20i asks the calling party to speak
his name before transferring the call and allows the called party
to accept or reject the call when answered. If the call is rejected,
the SVMi-20i will prompt the caller that their party is unavailable
and allow them to dial another extension or leave a message.
Allowable inputs are „Y‟ for yes or „N‟ for no.
The „enabled‟ field shows if this option is currently set. This
setting must be „Y‟ to allow a subscriber to set this greeting. This
option can only be set by the subscriber if the extension has
Greeting type of „Basic‟.
Find me
Find Me is a feature that may be programmed by the subscriber
as a high priority call connection method. When this feature is
set, the SVMi-20i will begin to dial the first 5 numbers in the
subscriber‟s stored number list until the subscriber is reached.
The „enabled‟ field shows if this option is currently set.
Scheduling
Each subscriber, if allowed by setting this parameter to „Y‟, may
define a weekly availability schedule. This schedule is used to
automatically select a day or night greeting to play to callers.
During the time that the subscriber is available according to this
schedule, the call will be transferred to the extension block‟s dial
number, and the no answer greeting will play if recorded.
If the subscriber is „not available‟ according to this schedule, the
call will be transferred to the extension block‟s dial number, and
the extension night greeting will play (if recorded).
Intercept (auto
night intercept)
This feature only affects subscribers who are using an
availability schedule (this must be allowed by a system
administrator.) When the intercept feature is set and the
subscriber is unavailable, callers will not be transferred to the
subscriber station.
Instead, they will immediately hear the night message (if
recorded).
Retrieve public
caller allowed
When this option is available, a subscriber that accesses his or
her mailbox while another caller is leaving a message will be
given the opportunity to immediately connect with that caller.
Busy greeting
allowed
Allows a subscriber to record a busy greeting. This option can
only be set by the subscriber if the extension has Greeting type
of „Basic‟.
Alternate
location allowed
If this is set to Yes, then a subscriber can use the Access
Manager Menu (digit 4 from the Main Menu) to set an alternate
number where they can be reached. This number can be an
internal or external location. When this feature is activated, the
SVMi-20i will perform a full supervised „Confirmed‟ transfer. If
there is no answer at the designated location, the transfer will be
aborted and the caller will be returned to the SVMi-20i to follow
the No-Answer call condition rules for that subscriber.

Greeting
Number
Recorded
When a subscriber is using the „Basic‟ greeting type, different
greetings will play depending on different call coverage
conditions. When a subscriber has the „Basic‟ greeting enabled,
he or she will be able to access and program the Personal
greeting menu from their telephone.
There are 9 personal greetings available, and any greeting may
be assigned to any call coverage condition. The call coverage
conditions are:
- No answer: Your telephone has rung but it did not answer.
- Blocked: A subscriber has „blocked‟ calls to their extension
(must be allowed by administrator).
- Screening: The subscriber has selected the call screening
option (must be allowed by the system administrator).
- Busy: Your telephone is busy (must be allowed by the system
administrator)
- Night: The subscriber‟s personal availability schedule reports
that the subscriber is an unavailable extension (must be allowed
by administrator).
If a subscriber has recorded only the greeting assigned to the
No-Answer Call Coverage Condition, then that greeting will play
to callers for all Call Coverage Conditions (No-Answer, Busy,
Blocked, Night, and Rejected Caller). In this case, the greeting
should be very general.
Availability
Schedule
If allowed by setting „Scheduling‟ to „Y‟, a subscriber may define
an availability schedule. During the time a subscriber is available
according to this schedule, the call will be transferred to the
extension block‟s dial number, and the no answer greeting will
play (if recorded).
If the subscriber is „not available‟ according to this schedule, the
call will be transferred to the extension block‟s dial number, and
the extension night greeting will play (if recorded).

Greeting
Two greeting options are available in the SVMi-20i Extension block.
They are NONE and BASIC.
If the greeting is NONE, the subscriber may not record a greeting in
their extension (they may however, if allowed, record a mailbox
greeting).
The caller will be played a list of caller options that match the
selections that have been allowed in Eclass System Caller Options
Digit Assignment.
These may include any or all of the following: dial another number,
leave a message, hold, select other custom options, or reach the
operator.
If the greeting type is BASIC, the caller may record custom greeting
(s) according to the features allowed in extension block
Authorizations.
The caller will still be able to access a list of caller options that
match the selections that have been allowed in Eclass System
Caller Options Digit Assignment, but the subscriber‟s greeting will
have to announce these. Additionally, any other options that have
been assigned in the extension Caller Options Processor (Extension
block Caller Option Processor page) will be available to callers.

Operating
Mode
Indicates the Mode name and number for which the displayed block
Pointers‟ Targets are active. Each Operating Mode is given a unique
number by the system. Valid numbers are 01-99, and are assigned
in sequence as new Modes are created.
The Mode number and name are associated with the block‟s
Pointers, not the block itself. This allows one block to route calls to
different destinations in different Modes, using different targets for
the pointers‟ various Mode references. For example, the No-Answer
pointer might route callers to an associate‟s Extension during the
„Day‟ Mode, but after 5:00 PM, it would route them to a mailbox
during the „Night‟ Mode. Pointers set in the default Mode are always
in effect unless the same Pointer is set in the current Operating
Mode. The SVMi-20i will display default Mode pointers in a block
while displaying pointers in another mode. The default Mode
pointers will be grayed out to denote that they are not in the current
Mode.
NO-ANSR
The SVMi-20i goes immediately to the designated target block when
a ring-no-answer condition is encountered. It will not prompt the
caller prior to doing this.
BUSY
The SVMi-20i goes immediately to the designated target block when
a busy condition is encountered. It will not prompt the caller prior to
doing this.
FBUSY
The SVMi-20i goes immediately to the designated target block when
a fast busy condition is encountered. It will not prompt the caller
prior to doing this.
BLOCKED
The SVMi-20i goes immediately to the designated target block when
call blocking is activated in the extension administration menu.
It will not prompt the caller prior to doing this.
ERROR
The SVMi-20i goes immediately to the designated target block when
an error is encountered during the transfer. It will not prompt the
caller prior to doing this.
MESSAGE
This causes the SVMi-20i to go directly to the designated block if the
caller chooses to leave a message for this extension.
The target is usually an MBX block. However, it may be another EXT
or DIAL block. If left unspecified in this block, and the <MSG>
pointer in the EClass block associated with it is set, the SVMi-20i will
attempt to find a mailbox with the same number as the extension. If
a mailbox is not found, the SVMi-20i will automatically create one. If
this parameter is not specified in this block and the EClass block
associated with it, the SVMi-20i will not present the caller the option
to leave a message in the event of a busy or no answer for this
extension.

OPTIONS
This pointer is reached because the EClass (General page)
assigned a specific digit to „options‟ and allowed the feature for at
least one call condition. The extension block (page 3 of 5) will then
show that „Other Options‟ has been assigned to that digit.
On this Call Director page, you may assign any destination to this
option‟s pointer. This is used if a subscriber wants to offer callers an
option to press a certain digit to route to a department or any other
condition that may be programmed in the SVMi-20i. The SVMi-20i
goes immediately to the designated Target block. It will not prompt
the caller prior to doing this.
OPERATOR
This pointer is reached because the EClass (General page)
assigned a specific digit to „operator‟ and allowed the feature for at
least one call condition. The extension block (page 3 of 5) will then

ESCAPE
This pointer is reached because the EClass (General page)
assigned a specific digit to „escape‟ and allowed the feature for at
least one call condition. The extension block (Caller Options

The SVMi-20i goes to the designated target block when the caller
enters no input. It will not prompt the caller prior to doing this.
The „wait for input‟ is located on General page of the EClass block.
INVALID
The SVMi-20i goes immediately to the designated target block when
a caller enters an invalid input. The SVMi-20i will not prompt the

message for the List. The message will then be distributed to all the
members of the List block.
Mclass
The name of the mailbox class of service that defines operating
characteristics for this List.
Language
This is a language option. You may select from any installed
language and from that point on, the LIST will respond to the
authorized owner in the language selected. Authorized owner
means a user who has entered a valid password.
If the extension parameter is filled in, the SVMi-20i will try to resolve
these fields to a single value (make them match). If conflicting
information is contained in these fields, the extension block has
priority and the LIST block will be automatically changed to match.
This selection is based on the order of the defined languages in
language page of the System Wide Parameters. If the languages
are to be reordered, added to or changed in language page of the
System Wide Parameters, then this field should be re-entered.

Description
Operating
Mode
It shows the mode name and number for which the displayed block
pointers‟ Targets are active. Each operating mode is given a unique
number by the system. Valid numbers are 01-99, and are assigned
in sequence as new modes are created.
The mode number and name are associated with the block‟s
pointers, but not the block itself. This allows each block to route calls
to different destinations in different modes, using different targets for
the pointers‟ various mode references.
For example, the No-Answer pointer might route callers to an
associate‟s extension during the „Day‟ mode, but after 5:00 PM, it
would route them to a mailbox during the „Night‟ mode. Pointers set
in the default mode are always in effect unless the same pointer is
set in the current operating mode.
The SVMi-20i will display the default mode pointers in a block while
showing pointers in another mode. The default mode pointers will be
grayed out to denote that they are not in the current mode.
MSG-LEFT
This is the block that the SVMi-20i will pass control to if the caller
leaves a message. The target block allows the caller the option of

additional options.

ESCAPE
This is the block that the SVMi-20i will pass control to if the caller
presses the escape digit while listening to the List greeting or while
leaving a message. When the Escape digit is pressed, the SVMi-20i
will immediately exit the process that it‟s in and go to the block
defined in this pointer.
GREETDTMF
This is the block that the SVMi-20i will pass control to if the caller
enters any valid DTMF while listening to the List greeting.
If defined, the Admin digit, escape digit, digit to skip the greeting,
and the operator digit are not considered valid for this pointer. The
target block is a menu. The menu will perform a search operation to
match the caller ENTRY to the INPUT value of a pointer or the
number of an extension or a mailbox.

SVMi-20i Administration Guide
Mailbox Block
The mailbox block is used to implement the voice mail messaging features on the SVMi-20i.
It also controls the operating characteristics specific to an individual mailbox such as whether
the mailbox is announce-only or if the subscriber has mailbox administration capabilities. This
block maintains the message notification details. The mailbox is where a subscriber receives,
sends, and manages messages. The public caller may record a message after hearing a personal
greeting from the mailbox user and choose to review, re-record, send, or discard his or her
message.
Event pointers are used to provide flexibility to handle messaging differently for various
modes of operation (typically at different times of the day).
The mailbox group number is convenient for organizing mailboxes and/or subscribers into
application-specific groups. This number must be the same as the group number for the
MClass used to control this block.
In most applications, the default value of 01 is normally used. Values from 01 to 99 are valid.
You select which group the mailbox block belongs to before you create the mailbox block. In a
„Multi-Tenant‟ installation, groups in the SVMi-20i can be used to partition the application
between tenants.

Label Name
This is the name of this block. A block name can be any
alphanumeric string of up to 16 characters (including spaces).
A block name may not be the same as another block name. MBX,
EXT, or LIST Numbers may not be duplicated within the same
group.
The SVMi-20i stores the subscriber name in either „lastname,
firstname‟ or „firstname lastname‟. When entering a subscriber
name, it is suggested you follow one format or the other for the
entire application. If the name is entered as „firstname lastname‟, the
SVMi-20i will NOT automatically re-sort it to „lastname, firstname‟,
but the subscriber would still be able to be accessed correctly from
the directory. However, mixing and matching formats within an
application would cause the list of blocks to appear to be out of
order.
This format („lastname, firstname‟ vs „firstname lastname‟) is only
important because the directory feature will search on a specific
field, „lastname‟ or „firstname‟. If you did not put a comma after the
„lastname‟ in the „lastname, firstname‟ format or put a comma after
„firstname‟ in the „firstname lastname‟ format, the directory search
would not be accurate and subscribers entered out of format could
not be accessed from the directory.

Number
This is the number of the mailbox. It cannot be the same as any
other mailbox block or list block. This is the number that is used to
give the block a unique identity. It is also the number that is used to
call the mailbox and can be referred to as it‟s „Key‟ value.
Extension
The extension number to which the mailbox belongs.
Mclass
This is the name of the mailbox class of service that defines
operating characteristics for this mailbox.
Language
This is a language option. You may select from any installed
language and from that point on, the extension will respond to the
authorized owner in the language selected. Authorized owner
means a user who has entered a valid password.
The extension block also has a language field, and the SVMi-20i will
try to resolve these fields to a single value (make them match). If
conflicting information is contained in these fields, the extension
block has priority and the mailbox block will be automatically
changed to match.
This selection is based on the order of the defined languages in
language page of the System Wide Parameters. If the languages
are to be reordered, added to, or changed in page 3 of the System

Announce
only mailbox
A „Y‟ in this field designates this as an announcement only mailbox.
When a public caller accesses this mailbox, it will play the greeting

If set to „Y‟, the SVMi-20i will beep at the subscriber before
requesting they enter their password when trying to log in.
The beep signifies whether they have messages or not. This is
useful when a caller is calling in from his or her cell phone and does
not want to stay on the phone any longer than they have to so they
can save minutes on their phone. The SVMi-20i will beep once for a
single message and twice if there is more than one message.
Directory

Inputs are „DEFAULT‟ or „NONE‟. In the SVMi-20i, subscribers
usually have both an extension block and a mailbox block (but may
have only one of them). Since each of these blocks have a
password option, if different password values are entered in each of
these blocks (extension and mailbox), the SVMi-20i will try to
resolve these two password fields into one value. The extension

Port
The default (recommended) port to use is 25. Most mail servers look
at port 25 for receiving and sending mail.
SMTP User
ID
This is the User ID that the SVMi-20i will use to log on to the mail
server and identify itself as a client associated with sending mail.
(Mail servers that are on a local LAN and that do not have public IP
addresses often do not require authentication.)
Password
This is the password associated with the SVMi-20i‟s User ID for
logging into the mail server, verifying that it is the client it said it was.
(Mail servers that are on a local LAN and that do not have public IP
addresses often do not require authentication.)
Domain
The Domain is used as part of the authentication process between
the SVMi-20i and the mail server. Based on the Local Domain Name
and Domain ID, the mail server can validate that it is accepting mails
from this client. (Mail servers that are on a local LAN and that do not
have Public IP addresses often do not require authentication.)

Operating
Mode
Indicates the mode name and number for which the displayed
block pointers‟ targets are active. Each operating mode is given a
unique number by the system. Valid numbers are 01-99, and are
assigned in sequence as new modes are created.
The mode number and name are associated with the block‟s
pointers, not the block itself. This allows one block to route calls to
different destinations in different modes, using different targets for
the pointers‟ various mode references. For example, the NoAnswer pointer might route callers to an associate‟s extension
during the „Day‟ mode, but after 5:00 PM, it would route them to a
mailbox during the „Night‟ mode. Pointers set in the default mode
are in effect unless overridden by the same pointer set in the
current operating mode. The SVMi-20i will display default mode
pointers in a block while viewing pointers in another mode. The
default mode pointers will be grayed out to denote that they are
not in the current mode.
MSG-LEFT
The block to go to, after the caller has recorded and sent a

Description
ESCAPE
The block to go to, if the caller presses the Escape digit to escape
from a mailbox (the escape digit may be pressed anytime before
the recording tone). It is recommended that the named block be
the initial MENU block. This allows the caller to return to the main
options that may include dialing another extension.
GREET-DTMF
This is the block to go to, if the caller enters any valid DTMF while
listening to the mailbox greeting. If defined, the Admin digit,
escape digit, digit to skip the greeting, and the operator digit is not
considered valid DTMF digits for this pointer. The target block is a
menu.
The menu will perform a search operation to match the caller
ENTRY to the KEY value of a pointer or the number of an
extension or a mailbox.
OPERATOR
This is the block to go to, if the caller presses the operator digit
while listening to the mailbox greeting.
USER-EXIT
This is the block proceeded to, if a mailbox user presses star (Q)
to exit from their mailbox. It is recommended that the named
block be the initial MENU block to allow the user to return to the
main options.
DIRECTORY
The block to go to, if the caller presses the digit associated with
directory assistance.

3-185
Menu Block
The menu is used to speak something to the caller, collect a caller‟s DTMF entry, and pass
control to another block. A menu can accept entries from 1 to 16 digits in length.
The menu performs a search operation to match the caller ENTRY.
For example, a menu prompt may be, „You may dial an extension directly or for sales press 1,
for service press 2.‟ If the caller presses 1, a pointer with an input value of <1> directs the
caller to an extension group within the system called „SALES‟. If the caller entered 223, the
menu may be configured to search for an extension or mailbox.
When a match is found, the SVMi-20i looks to see if it should translate the input into a new
value before performing the search. The SVMi-20i then transfers control to a block defined in
the target name field. This is all done in the in the menu input processor.

Item
Description
Take INPUT
from
The value which the SVMi-20i uses to search INPUT values in the
input processor on Menu Input Processor page.
- ENTRY: If a menu is expecting DTMF digits from the caller, this
should be set to ENTRY.
- KEY: The search is based on input that has been stored in the KEY
register that existed upon entry to the current menu block. After all
<TRANSLATION> operations have been performed and a match
has been found, the new search value is stored in KEY register for
later use.
- CID, FWDID, TRUNK: These are used in the menu blocks that
handle system integration (Direct Station and Trunk and Forward
Station and Trunk).
These should not be changed. For specialized applications, you can
create other menu blocks that can take input from these registers to
use within the application.
Store INPUT
in
Store the input to this menu in the CID, FwdID, TRUNK call session
memory register for use as input to subsequent menu search.
This is used for basic system integration with the system. The LANG
Register is used to store the language option selected by the caller.
Administrati
on
Normally the „#‟ key is used as a prefix for signaling administrative
functions. When it is the first digit pressed, it does not count as one
of the digits pressed, when compared to Maximum Caller Entry
Digits.
In other words, if a caller enters #123, it will count as a total of 3
digits.
Some applications may require restriction of administrative
capabilities on specific ports or menus. This can be accomplished by
setting Administration digit value to blank in the menu blocks where
administration is not allowed. Allowable inputs are 0-9, „#‟, „Q‟, „a‟,
„b‟, „c‟, and „d‟.
Escape
The Escape digit (normally the „Q‟ key) causes an immediate exit
from a request for digit entry. When the Escape digit is pressed, the
SVMi-20i will not wait for any subsequent digits to be pressed. The
INPUT value will include any digits entered before the Escape digit
as well as the Escape digit itself.
Prompts 1~6
These are the voice prompts that the SVMi-20i speaks when the
menu block is entered. Menu prompts 1-6 are spoken in succession
and are normally used to prompt the caller for an entry.
Allowable inputs include any four digit prompt number (1000-9999).
A blank entry means „say nothing‟. To use a different or custom
prompt, highlight the field to be changed and enter the desired
prompt number.
Invalid
condition
prompt
The prompt spoken when no match is found during a menu search.
It normally notifies the caller that their entry is invalid and advises to
try again.

Description
Request
password
prompt
The prompt which asks the caller to enter a password, when
appropriate. The prompt is used when a caller has made an entry
that requires a password for access to another block, or perform an
administrative function.
Maximum
caller entry
digits
Indicates the maximum number of digits that the caller may enter in
response to the menu prompts.
The allowable values are 1-16. This should be set to the length of
the maximum valid entry in this menu. If set greater, the SVMi-20i
will wait unnecessarily for additional digits to be entered. If the caller
enters more than the specified number of digits, the excess will be
carried forward to the next block.
Wait for first
entry digits
This is the time, in seconds (from 0 to 99), that the SVMi-20i will wait
for the caller to make an entry. This timer begins after the last menu
prompt has been spoken.
Wait for
subsequent
digits
This is the time, in seconds (from 0 to 99), that the SVMi-20i will wait
for the caller to make a subsequent entry.
This timer begins after the caller‟s first entry digit has been received
and resets after each digit pressed by the caller, up to the Max
Caller Entry value.
Repeat
prompts if
no entry
Indicates the number of times, from 0 to 9, that the menu prompts
are repeated if no entry is made by the caller.
Retry if
invalid
condition
The number of additional attempts that this menu allows if the caller
makes an invalid entry. The allowable inputs are 0-9. When retries
are exhausted, the SVMi-20i will exit the menu using the <INVALID>
condition.
Append to
key register
A „Y‟ in this parameter instructs the SVMi-20i to add the resulting
KEY value to the previous KEY value stored in the KEY register. The
new KEY will only be appended if the search in the current menu
was successful. This is useful for applications where the caller is
asked to enter DTMF (usually one or two digits) in response to a
series of prompts (menus). Each response is first validated (by
matching an INPUT value) and then added (appended) to the
previous response. After the final response is given, the combined
KEY value may be used by another menu to search for an extension
or a mailbox. If „N‟ is specified, the previous KEY is cleared and
replaced by the new value.
Store key
value in
Store the resulting KEY from the menu search in the CID, FwdID, or
TRUNK call session memory register for use as input to subsequent
menu operations. To change this value, press ENTER to bring up a
pick list of appropriate values. Highlight and select one.

Operating
Mode
Indicates the mode name and number for which the displayed block
pointers‟ targets are active. Each operating mode is given a unique
number by the system. Valid numbers are 01-99, and are assigned in
sequence as new modes are created.
The mode number and name are associated with the block‟s pointers,
not the block itself. This allows one block to route calls to different
destinations in different modes, using different targets for the pointers‟
various mode references. For example, the Invalid pointer might route
callers to an operator‟s extension during the „Day‟ mode, but after 5:00
PM, it would route them to a Night Options menu during the „Night‟
mode. Pointers set in the default mode stay in effect unless
overridden by pointers set in the current operating mode. The SVMi20i will display default mode pointers in a block while viewing pointers
in another mode. The default mode pointers will be grayed out to
denote that they are not in the current mode.

Event
- NO-ENTRY: The block that the SVMi-20i will execute next if the
caller makes no entry in this menu.
- INVALID: The block that the SVMi-20i will execute next if the caller
has made too many invalid entries (determined by Retries allowed) or
a search on a value other than ENTRY failed to find a match.
- FAXCALL: The block that the SVMi-20i will execute next after
hearing a FAX Tone. This applies only when the FAX machine is an
extension of the system.
- User defined event pointers: These are the event pointers that the
user enters to customize the SVMi-20i functions. They include all the
entries below FAXCALL.
Action
- GOTO: Specifies the next block to execute, if the caller‟s entry
matches the INPUT value.
- PASS (PASSWORD THEN GOTO): Used only with menu blocks.
A password pointer is used to restrict access to a target block by
requiring the caller to enter a password code before passing control to
the target block.
- TRANSLATIONS: Translates caller entry, telephone system or
network integration information to the translated value specified.
The SVMi-20i then searches for a match, using the translated value.
- SEARCH: Used only with menu blocks. This type of ACTION uses
the INPUT value to search a specified range of block types to find a
block with a number that matches and then passes control to the
block. More than one block type may be searched at one time. Valid
block types to be searched are extensions and mailboxes (searched
in that order).
- FILE: This type of action provides for a large amount of input values,
for a specific menu, to be stored in a database which is accessed at
the time that the menu is executing. It directs the SVMi-20i to search
the specified data base file, located in the DTA directory of the hard
disk, for a match to the INPUT value. The type of data file is pointer
file that has the filename extension of PTR respectively. This is used
in applications that would otherwise require a very large number of
individual event pointers to be programmed in a menu block.
Pointer (PTR) files are simple text files, which may be produced on a
word processor, notepad, or DOS editor. PTR files are stored as .TXT
files.
Each line of a pointer file appears and acts exactly like a pointer on
the SVMi-20i menu‟s input processor screen. This operates as an
extension to the input pointers on the menu block. Also, a single
pointer file can be used for more than one menu block.

Target
Name
Description
Specifies the block to pass control to when the input value is matched
with the input from the defined input source.
Input Value for User Defined Event Pointers
The input value is a defined event pointer that directs the SVMi-20i to other blocks. The input
processor contains input pointers that determine which application block receives control of
the call next. Upon finding a match, it examines the type of action specified in that pointer and
passes control to the object named in the pointer‟s target. These pointers may point to an
object (with or without requiring the caller to enter a password), translate the input value to a
new value or search a large array of objects for one matching the input value.
The input value can be any digits that are to be processed by the menu.
These can be digits dialed by the caller or digits passed from previous blocks. The origin for
these digits is determined by the contents of the „input FROM…‟ field.
A question mark, „?‟, may be used as the INPUT value to apply to a set of caller entries. An
INPUT value of <2??> will match any 3 digit entry beginning with the digit „2‟. An INPUT
value of „4?57‟ will apply to all 4 digit entries beginning with the digit „4‟, ending with the
digits „57‟ and having any value in the second digit. The Wild Card is placed in the INPUT
value to indicate that any digit entered in that position will qualify as a match.
The „?‟ character may also be used in a translation to indicate that the translated value should
include the character which is in the position of the corresponding „?‟ in the pointer INPUT
value.
A dot (.) is used in the translation value to indicate that the corresponding „?‟ in the INPUT
value should be discarded.
When searching for a match to a caller entry or for a particular pointer, the SVMi-20i follows
a consistent sequence. Menu blocks require a more elaborate search than other blocks.
However, the pattern is consistent. It looks for the most specific match. A direct digit match on
an INPUT value takes precedence over a wild card match. Also, a wild card pointer with a
lesser number of „?‟ characters will precede one with a greater number. A match on a pointer in
the current mode of operation takes precedence over a pointer in the default mode.

SVMi-20i Administration Guide
Mode Block
A mode block exists for each operating mode. An operating mode is defined by a combination
of port (s) and time. It can be as simple as Day or Night mode, or more complex (e.g. a special
mode that is in effect for port 2 and 3 between 9.23 AM and 7.41 PM on Mondays and
Wednesdays).
A mode block is an entry point into a call routing solution for a particular operating mode and
can contain an opening voice prompt which the SVMi-20i will speak when answering a call.
The main purpose of a mode block is to provide the SVMi-20i with an entry point into a call
session and to direct it to other blocks depending on the type of call.
The mode block receives call information from the phone system, speaks a salutation
(optional), and then transfers control to the next block.
A mode can have only one mode block.
Every call reaching the SVMi-20i is identified by a call code. A call code consists of two
letters. The first letter will indicate how the call arrived and will be D (Direct Call), A
(Forward All), B (Forward Busy), N (Forward No Answer), or T (Manual Transfer). The
second letter indicates the type of call and will be T (trunk) or S (Station).
The SVMi-20i can direct the call to a different block for each different call code.
The SVMi-20i applications may contain up to 99 different modes, although this many are
seldom necessary, each corresponding to a particular style of organizational operation. As the
organization changes its behavior by changing work shifts, scheduling inventory and other
special events or conditions, the SVMi-20i automatically adjusts the call routing solutions
required to meet callers‟ needs.

This parameter points to the next block that the SVMi-20i will
execute after answering a call and speaking the prompts in the
mode block.
Any DTMF digits entered in the mode block will be carried forward to
the next menu block.
DEFAULT
The default pointer of the mode block determines what to do if a
condition occurs while operating in this mode and a pointer has not
been set. This is intended to be a back-up precaution, in the event
of configuration error. It is normally directed to a BYE block which
will hang up. This parameter will ONLY be referenced if an
application is written with a hole within the application. A hole would
be defined as an event that occurs that an appropriate event pointer
was not programmed to handle.

Network Mailbox Block
The Network Mailbox (NMX) Block is used to send messages to Subscribers on remote
systems where the Audio Messaging Interchange Specification (AMIS) Analog messaging is
also installed. Because this is a multi-vendor standard, SVMi Series can both receive from and
send to any manufacturer's voicemail system that is also fully AMIS Analog compliant.The
network Mailbox maintains the delivery schedule for AMIS messages, and contains
a number of the same parameters found in a standard Mailbox Block. It has a mailbox number
(key) group number, text label, default personal greeting, recorded name, and a password.
It is addressed the same way as a standard Subscriber Mailbox, and may be listed in SVMi
Series' dial by name Directories. The Network Mailbox, like a List Block, is a message
delivery object, and is therefore not usually assigned to a Subscriber. It has few Subscriber
Services, and no Message Center. Subscriber Administration functions - e.g. recording a name
and setting a password - are normally performed by the SVMi Series System Administrator.
The AMIS Analog specification places certain restrictions on messages. For example,
messages must be less than eight (8) minutes in length, and a maximum of nine (9) messages
may be transferred during any single message delivery outcall. Also, due to the variations in
message attributes on different systems (e.g. urgent, private, etc.), network messages are not
sent with these attributes. See Table V-1 below for a summary of relevant AMIS features.
To prevent delivery conflicts and accidental messaging loops, SVMi Series does not deliver
Administrator Broadcast messages to Network Mailboxes.
A separate Mailbox Class of Service should be used for Network Mailboxes. This will allow
additional network message delivery options without affecting the Message Alert settings for
standard Subscriber Mailboxes.While there is only one Network Mailbox type ("Typ") of
object, there are two different kinds of NMX, based on their use. The first is a Proxy NMX.
Each Subscriber at a remote location may have a Proxy NMX on the local system. This
mailbox has a recorded and text name so that local Subscribers may use the Directory to
address messages for them. Proxy NMXs do not have remote telephone numbers or delivery
schedules set. They do have a Remote User Mailbox number, but this is set to a unique local
number.Messages sent to a Proxy NMX are forwarded (using the AUTO-FWD Pointer in their
CallDirector) to the second kind of NMX - the Site NMX.There is one Site NMX on the local
system for each remote location. The number of the Site NMX is entered as the Remote User
number in a Proxy NMX. By setting the delivery schedule and remote system telephone
number in the Site Mailbox, all Subscriber messages from Proxy NMXs may be batched with
one set of controls.
This prevents overloading SVMi-20i ports with network message delivery, which might
restrict incoming call processing.

Mailbox, MClass, and List Blocks must all have a Group Number, in
addition to their individual Block Number. This supports the
partitioning requirements described in the Extension and EClass
Blocks.Messages may only be exchanged by members of the same
Group, and a Menu Block will only search on a single Group
Number, as with Extensions. For most applications, all Mailbox,
MClass, and List Blocks may be set to use the default Group 01.
The Group number is assigned at the time that the Network MBX is
created.
Label
The name of this block. A block name can be any alphanumeric
string of up to 16 characters (including spaces). A block name may
not be the same as another block name.
Number
The number representing this Network Mailbox. Also known as its
key value. It may not be the same as the Number for any other
standard Mailbox, Network Mailbox, or List Block in the same
mailbox Group. If this is a Proxy NMX, it may be convenient to use
the same Number as the Subscriber's standard Mailbox Number on
the remote system. However, if this conflicts with a local Number, it
may be a different number.

Description
Extension
The Name of the Extension associated with this Mailbox, if any. In
most cases this should be left blank, as an NMX is not assigned to a
local Subscriber, and calls are not directed to it. If an Extension is
entered, it must not be one that is associated with any other
standard Subscriber Mailbox.
Mclass
The name of the Mailbox Class of Service associated with this NMX.
It should not be a Block used by Standard Mailboxes. If this is a Site
NMX used to control delivery of messages, it may be necessary to
use the ALERT Pointer in the MClass CallDirector to specify an after
hours Mode during which network messages are delivered.
Language
This is a language option. You may select from any installed
language and from that point on, the Network MBX will respond to
the authorized owner in the language selected. Authorized owner
means a user who has entered a valid password.
The Extension block also has a language field. If this Network MBX
has an extension Block assigned to the extension parameter, The
SVMi-20i will try to resolve the Language fields to a single value
(make them match). If conflicting information is contained in these
fields, the Extension Block has priority and the Network MBX Block
will be automatically changed to match.
This selection is based on the order of the defined languages in
Language page of the System Parameters. If the languages
are to be reordered, added to or changed in Language page of the
System Parameters then this field should be re-entered.

enabled
A 'Yes' in this field enables the full length, extended prompting to
play to the subscriber the next time he logs into his Mailbox. Once
the flag is set to 'No', extended prompting does not play again. The
extended prompting is used to aid the new mailbox user.
Directory
A"Yes" in this field allows this NMX to be listed in the Public
Directory. Unless outside callers are to be allowed to send network
messages to remote subscribers, this field should be set to "No". A
"Yes" in the "User" field allows this NMX to be listed in the User
Directory. The mailbox may be listed by subscriber name, if a name
is recorded, or by mailbox number.
Subscriber
password
Allows the mailbox password to be changed to the default digits
specified by Default Password in the System Parameters or
removed completely. Inputs are: "DEFAULT" or "NONE".
Retention

Local and
Remote
The three telephone number fields are country code, trunk or area
code, and telephone number. Enter "1" or leave the country code
blank for the United States. In the second field, enter the trunk code
for a local system or an area code for within the United States. The
third field is the seven-digit telephone number. Both numbers should
be entered regardless of "type".
The local number is the number of the system calling out. The
remote number is the number to dial for the remote mailbox. SVMi
Series uses both numbers to determine whether or not to dial the
area code.
Group and
Number
For Proxy NMXs, these fields must be set to coincide with the
Subscriber's Mailbox values on the remote system. If the remote
system is not a SVMi Series, the Group Number should be left
blank, and the previous field "Enforce group numbers" should be set
to "No". For a Site NMX, the "Number" field should be left blank. The
system will automatically use the proper number from each Proxy
NMX that is auto forwarding messages to this NMX.
Group: Enter the Group Number the remote user belongs to. This
field should be set to '0' if group is undefined or not used by the
remote unit.
Number: If this is a Proxy NMX, enter the Subscriber's Mailbox
Number at the remote location. If this is a Site NMX, leave the field
blank. If the number entered is a Distribution List Mailbox on the
remote site, all members of the List will receive messages sent to
this NMX.
Note: Public callers can only send messages to proxy NMXs. The
number is identified with the name of the mode.

Operating
Mode
Indicates the mode name and number for which the displayed block
pointers‟ targets are active. Each operating mode is given a unique
number by the system. Valid numbers are 01-99, and are assigned
in sequence as new modes are created.
The mode number and name are associated with the block‟s
pointers, not the block itself. This allows one block to route calls to
different destinations in different modes, using different targets for
the pointers‟ various mode references. For example, the No-Answer
pointer might route callers to an associate‟s extension during the
„Day‟ mode, but after 5:00 PM, it would route them to a mailbox
during the „Night‟ mode. Pointers set in the default mode are in
effect unless overridden by the same pointer set in the current
operating mode. The SVMi-20i will display default mode pointers in
a block while viewing pointers in another mode. The default mode
pointers will be grayed out to denote that they are not in the current
mode.
MSG-LEFT
The block to go to, after the caller has recorded and sent a
message.
NOMSGLEFT
The block to go to, if the caller did not leave a message.

ESCAPE
The block to go to, if the caller presses the Escape digit to escape
from a mailbox (the escape digit may be pressed anytime before the
recording tone). It is recommended that the named block be the
initial MENU block. This allows the caller to return to the main
options that may include dialing another extension. This pointer
applies only to public callers.
GREETDTMF
This is the block to go to, if the caller enters any valid DTMF while
listening to the mailbox greeting. If defined, the Admin digit, escape
digit, digit to skip the greeting, and the operator digit is not
considered valid DTMF digits for this pointer. The target block is a
menu.
The menu will perform a search operation to match the caller
ENTRY to the KEY value of a pointer or the number of an extension
or a mailbox.
OPERATOR
This is the Block to go to if the caller presses the operator digit while
listening to the mailbox greeting. This pointer applies only to public
callers.
AUTO-FWD
This is the Block to forward new messages to when the time has
expired in the 'Auto-Forward Message After' parameter. The target
may be a mailbox, list, or network mailbox and may not point back to
itself. For Proxy NMXs, this should point to the Site NMX that will
actually deliver the messages to the remote location. The pointer
should be active in the Default Mode. For a Site NMX, this field may
be left blank. As a failsafe, you may forward network messages to a
local standard Subscriber Mailbox after a delay long enough to allow
proper remote delivery. If network delivery has failed, this captures
any messages which were not delivered.

SVMi-20i Administration Guide
Port Block
The Port Block always precedes a Mode Block. This Block contains all the necessary
parameters to link the PBX/Telephone system with the SVMi-20i. This includes all call setup
protocols, hardware communication processes, handshaking, and switch integration. The
Block tells the physical port how to communicate with the hardware it is connected to.
The Port Block defines the physical connection between a SVMi-20i voice port and the phone
system, describing all the signals passed between the phone system and SVMi-20i. It describes
how calls are presented, how to answer them, and how to collect integration data describing an
incoming call. It defines the necessary dial strings to place callers on consultation hold and
draw dial tone, complete call transfers, abort call transfers, log on, and disconnect.The Port
Block also defines what kind of disconnect supervision the phone system provides and how
reliable it is.
The Port Block answers incoming calls and checks the Schedule Table to find out which Mode
Block to pass control to. The Block collects the Call Type Data and passes that data to the
appropriate Mode Block along with the caller.
In order to process calls, each port must be assigned a Port Block.
NOTE: This has been done for you and is hard coded into the system. Many of the parameters
are not applicable to the Samsung switches while in an embedded environment. The Port
Block was made visible to allow you to adjust the Disconnect Parameter. Many installations
have been having trouble getting the CO to provide proper disconnect. Changing the
disconnect signal in the port block will allow the SVMi-20i to disconnect on an alternate
signal type. See Disconnect Signal below.
Parameters prefixed below with (DO NOT USE) should not be played with. These parameters
will ultimately be adjusted for use with the Samsung switches or eliminated from view.

Link is wink
start(DO
NOT USE)
In a wink start situation, the CO transmits a signal to say a call is
coming in. SVMi-20i issues a wink to acknowledge the call. The
wink for loop current is used in DID installations in which case the
wait for loop current is set to 'Yes'. The setting 'No' acknowledges a
flash hook.
Wait for loop
current(DO
NOT USE)
If this parameter is set to "Yes", incoming calls are signaled via a
loop current. If set to "No", incoming calls are signaled via a ring
signal.
Hunt group
type
How are the calls presented to the SVMi-20i. By default this is set to
'Linear'. It should match the 'Ring' setting selected in MMC 601
when you set up your station group for the SVMi-20i.
If "Ring' in MMC 601 is set for 'Sequential" then Hunt Group should
be set for "Linear' .If "Ring' in MMC 601 is set for 'Distributed" then
Hunt Group should be set for "Rotating'.

Description
Disconnect
signal
Disconnect supervision is generally transparent to the installer and
the user. When a calling party hangs up, a signal (IPC Message) is
sent to SVMi-20i indicating the caller has dropped and the SVMi -20i
should hang up it's appropriate Port. The SVMi-20i will, by default,
only hang-up if the switch tells it to do so.
This parameter allows the installer to select an additional type of
disconnect signal which will be used with this system.
NOTE: This parameter was the main reason for making this block
visible. If you are having trouble getting the CO to provide a proper
disconnect this parameter can help you. Remember the problem is
with the CO and this is simply trying to accommodate for the lack of
proper disconnect. The most common alternatives are 'Dial Tone',
'Busy Tone', and/or 'Reorder Tone'.
It is best not to rely on a dial tone for a disconnect signal.
Continuous background noise may be misconstrued as a disconnect
signal, when a caller is leaving a message, resulting in the caller
being suddenly, and rudely, cut off. Unreliable signals can also
cause messages to end with long dial tones. Alternately, dial tone
may not be detectable in a given installation resulting in "hung"
ports, phantom calls, etc. Test before using. SVMi-20i must have a
reliable disconnect signal to set up conference calls.
Toll saver
group(DO
NOT USE)
Sets which mailbox group this functionality will be applied to.
Toll saver
rings(TO
NOT USE)
The additional number of rings the system waits for the Toll Saver
feature. SVMi-20i' toll saver feature "guesses" the caller's mailbox
based on the caller ID, checks to see if the caller has messages,
and delays pickup if there are no messages. Pickup is delayed by
waiting additional rings and/or playing a prompt before answering.
Toll saver
prompt(DO
NOT USE)
The prompt played during the Toll Saver delay.
Auto clear
MWI(DO
NOT USE)
This parameter identifies under which conditions the switch will reset
message waiting indicators. This helps SVMi-20i keep track of MWI
status. Acceptable entries are:
0 - The switch never has permission to clear the indicators.
1 - Clear only by the port that set it. The user must dial into the port
that set the indicator.
2 - Clears when the user dials directly into any voice mail port.
3 - Clears when the user gets routed into SVMi-20i by any means
(i.e. Call Forward).
4 - Clears when the user reaches SVMi-20i by any means and
from any port.

Port logon(DO NOT USE)
The digit(s) dialed to initiate, or maintain,
communications with the phone system. The Port
Logon feature instructs SVMi-20i to pick up the
phone and dial the indicated string. When starting or if
no calls come in for one hour, the system assumes
it's not connected and checks. A comma (,) tells
SVMi-20i to go off-hook for one second; a
semicolon (;) places the line off-hook and tests for dial
tone. If the logon fails, another attempt will be made
in five minutes. It is not necessary to reset either the
PBX or SVMi-20i in order to reinitialize the link. The
system is informed if a port is working or if it even
exists. The setting may be left blank except on
electronic sets. The comma (,) is recommended. The

Query Block
Query blocks are used to create a „voice questionnaire‟. The SVMi-20i can be configured to
ask the caller a series of questions, record the caller‟s voice responses and combine the
responses into single or multiple voice message (s) that is (are) placed into one or more
specified mailbox (es).
Common applications are order entry, caller opinion surveys, and information requests. To
send the voice response to more than one mailbox, send the response to a list.
When the mailbox user reviews a message, recorded by query blocks, each of the responses is
played back in the order it was recorded, preceded by a playback prompt (if used) to identify it.
The operation can be configured to offer callers the options of playing back, changing, or
confirming their response with DTMF commands or it can be programmed so that it requires
no DTMF entries at all. When used in conjunction with menu blocks, sequences can be created
which involve both voice and DTMF responses (e.g., „Dial 1 to order nails or 2 to order bolts‟).
The operating modes in the CallDirector section of the query block are used to provide the
flexibility to handle calls differently for various modes of operation (typically at different
times of the day). The CallDirector uses event pointers to pass control of the call.

Speak Block
The purpose of a speak block is to speak a prompt or system information to the caller. A speak
block contains two prompts in addition to speaking system information. After speaking to the
caller, control is passed to another block based on the target of the NEXT pointer.
This block is commonly used to speak a salutation to the new caller and is useful for verifying
caller input before passing control of the caller to the next block. An administrator may select
system prompts or customized prompts recorded in the Voice Studio in this block. Up to three
prompts may be played, but only the first and third prompt positions in the sequence are
prompts.
The second position speaks a unique „index‟ (or register) value, which may be any one of the
following: current time, today‟s date, voiced confirmation of digits entered by the caller, or the
contents of one of the call session memory registers. This allows an administrator to create a
scenario in which the caller enters their account number (in a preceding menu block) and the
speak block plays „The account number you entered is 4788235. If this is correct, press 1. If
not, press 3 to re-enter it.‟ This uses all three prompt positions.
The second one plays a confirmation of the number that the caller entered in the previous
menu. The third prompt implies a menu block function within the speak block, which does not
exist. Instead, an event pointer labeled Next has targeted a menu, which receives control
immediately following the end of the third prompt. Options „1‟ and „3‟ are actually processed
in this second menu block. Speak blocks may be „daisy-chained‟ to play an extended series of
prompts.
The information contained within the speak block screen shown in this section is for
discussion and display purposes only. One page houses all speak block parameters. The
parameters are grouped by category as follows:

One of the handiest features of the station block is the Call Progress Training facility. This
feature allows you to provide phone numbers and have the SVMi-20i call them to learn the
ringback and busy signals automatically. The SVMi-20i then adjusts the appropriate parameter
settings in the station block according to the data collected by calling the provided numbers.
Blocks that reference a telephone number such as mailbox blocks must reference a station
block which allows the SVMi-20i to dial. This is particularly useful for unique stations that
must be handled in a special way.
However, this usually isn‟t necessary. Station blocks contain a set of matching strings which
allow the SVMi-20i to select an appropriate station block based on the kind of number being
dialed (all seven digit numbers, four digit numbers beginning with „3‟, „0‟, long distance
numbers, etc.). The SVMi-20i requires at least one station block to make supervised calls and
you can create as many station blocks as desired.
Station blocks can be specifically selected. If an instruction to dial a number (such as a
message alert number-both found in the mailbox block) does not have a specific station block
defined, a station block will be automatically selected based on the number to dial. See
Matching Dial Strings for more on this subject.
There are five types of station blocks preset on the SVMi-20i: Template, Beeper, Long
Distance, Off-Premise, and On-Premise. Each of these station block types comes with factory
preset settings which should not be changed.
If you want to change any of these parameter settings, press copy button and enter a new name
for the block. You now have a new station block.
Make the necessary parameter setting changes to the new block and assign it as necessary.
Save the original five station blocks with their factory default settings for future reference and
use.

Matching Dial
Strings
There are two ways for the SVMi-20i to select a station block.
The station is specifically selected by a mailbox or extension
block or by automatic selection. This Matching Dial String area
is where the automatic selection takes place. If a station block
has not been explicitly assigned to a phone number, the SVMi20i will search all station blocks to locate the one most closely
matching the number being dialed. Station blocks can contain
up to six matching dial strings. These strings can include any
digit which can be dialed and the wildcard character „?‟. Zero
would match the operator‟s extension.
Examples:
3??? - Match any four-digit number beginning with „3‟.
411 - Match „411‟ only.
???5000 - Match any seven-digit number ending in „5000‟.
??? - Match any three-digit number.
Prefix
A dial prefix instructs the SVMi-20i what DTMF to dial, if any,
prior to the actual number. Prefix examples include a tie line or
trunk access code.
One example is shown in the off-premise Station block as
follows: „9‟, tells the SVMi-20i to dial „9‟ and then pause before
dialing the actual telephone number.

Suffix
Enter any DTMF that must be dialed after the actual number.
This will usually be left blank but may include an account code
or PBX feature code. Beepers usually require some form of
DTMF entry after the telephone number.
Simultaneous
xfers
Set this parameter to „Y‟ to allow more than one port to transfer
to the same station simultaneously. This applies to blind
transfer conditions only. This can be applied to cases such as
station groups and operator positions.
Internal station

ANNEX A. Special Characters Used When
Writing Dialing Instructions
These characters perform special functions when embedded in any dialing string:
&-This is a flash-hook which is critical for signaling on analog systems.
,-The comma is a one second pause.
\-The backslash is a four second pause.
T-„T‟ tells the port to switch to tone (DTMF) dialing. This is the default.
W-Wait for answer. On encountering this character, the SVMi-20i will monitor the line for an
answer from the called station before dialing any additional characters. If no answer is
detected within 6 ring back cycles or 3 busy cycles, the call will be recalled.
;-The semicolon is wait for dial tone. The SVMi-20i will wait up to twelve seconds for dial
tone before dialing any additional characters. If no dial tone is detected, the call will fail. This
is useful in environments that may have a shortage of resources such as a limited number of
trunk lines or DTMF receivers.
~di-This is an instruction to dial in band.
H-Operate the hookswitch. If on, hook goes off, if off, hook goes on.
To tell the SVMi-20i to dial the value of a register, you would put a dollar sign ($) in front of
the register variable. I.e., $C means dial the value stored in the Caller ID register. $F means
dial the value stored in the Forward Id register.
