Note: For remote AltiSupervisor users outside the firewall, TCP port
10050 is required to be open to allow auto upgrade. Also,
automatic upgrade over the Internet requires the sending of 15 MB
files over the WAN, which may take some time, to perform the
automatic update.

• Abandoned to App or others—the caller exits the WG Queue by
pressing a digit. Such a call can be sent to a custom application, AA,
operator, extension, or outside line park, based on settings in
AltiWare Administrator.
• Service level %—the percentage of queued calls within the service
level threshold. Service Level = (number of calls in WG Queue –
number of calls in Q over SL threshold) / number of calls in Q.
• Average wait time for answered calls—the average amount of time
a caller is in queue before being answered.
• Average wait time for abandoned calls—the average amount of time
calls were in queue before they were abandoned. Abandoned means
