Quadro’s Feature Codes
Quadro’s Feature Codes
This chapter describes how Quadro’s feature codes allow the user to navigate through Quadro’s services with the help of a phone handset. These
services are Establishing a Call, PBX Services and Voice Mail Services.
Establishing a call
To make a call, dial the Routing Number.
Routing Numbers and available routes to, from and through Quadro are listed in the Call Routing Table. The Call Routing Table is configured and
managed by Quadro’s Administrator. To receive information about dialing rules, please contact the administrator.
Please Note: You may accelerate establishing a connection by entering a pound (#) sign dialed at the end of the routing number.
Using Quadro’s PBX Services
PBX Services accessible at the dial tone, characterized by beginning with the key :
Entering the Voice Mail Services
(see further key codes below)
a
Redialing automatically
If you hang up afterwards, your phone will start ringing as soon as the last called destination is reached.
If you keep the handset lifted, the connection will be established as soon as the called party answers.
A specific beep sound will be heard during the entire auto-redialing period (specified on the Basic Services page). Another beep sound
will be heard if no auto redialing is possible. To stop the auto redialing process, simply lift the handset and hung up again (if you were
keep waiting with the handset lifted, you will need to push the hook button twice on your phone to stop the redialing).
Please Note: This service is functional for SIP and PBX calls only. For PSTN calls, this feature works as a single redial (with no multiple
attempts to reach the called destination).
b
Calling back the last caller
If calling back is not possible, you will hear the message “The dialed number doesn’t exist”.
c
Enabling/disabling the Do Not Disturb service turns off/on your phone bell for the time period indicated on the Quadro management
page Do Not Disturb Settings. Incoming calls will be routed to voice mail.
hc
Blocking the last caller
The last caller party will be blocked and added to the table on the management page Incoming Call Blocking, where you may unblock it
later. This service is available for 10 seconds after the call has been terminated.
Attention: Blocking the caller with anonymous caller ID (for example, anonymous@anonymous or similar) will lead to blocking all callers
with an unknown caller address.
hd
Getting the line information
You will hear your line, extension and SIP number.
he
Forwarding Management is configured according to the Unconditional Call Forwarding settings for All Callers entered into the page
Unconditional Call Forwarding Settings. If no unconditional forwarding is configured for All Callers, the system will not activate the
forwarding service and a voice message will ask to configure the forwarding settings first. (See further key codes below.)
e
Alternative Call Park
The service acts as an alternative Call Park dedicated mainly to IP line users, but can also be used by local FXS users. To park the call
using the Alternative Call Park feature, the call should be held first using the appropriate Hold button on the IP Phones (for IP line users)
or by dialing the
a key combination (for FXS users). When the call is held, f should be dialed to park the call.
f
Further actions are the same as for the Call Park service shown below.

Quadro’s Feature Codes
PBX services accessible during the call (for phones connected to the FXS lines), characterized by starting with the key
:
Keeping a call on hold
a is used to hold the active connection, in order to place or receive a second call. When holding the first call, the user is able to
place a call to a third party, in particular cases for conferencing (3 way calling) or call transferring purposes. To be able to receive a
second call while currently being on a call, the call waiting service should be enabled on the management page Basic Services. When a
second call comes in, the beep sound indication is heard in the active call.
a
Transferring a call without consultation
Press
to hold a call partner and to get a dial tone (within approximately 1 second). Enter the phone number of the destination
phone where the call should be transferred to. Hang up on the ring tones. The call on hold will be transferred to the specified
destination.
Transferring a call with consultation
Press
to hold a call and to get the dial tone (within approximately 1 second). Enter the phone number of the destination phone
where the call should be transferred to. Talk to the called party and then hang up. The call partner on hold will be connected to the called
party.
Joining active lines to start a conference call
Hold the first call (
a), make the second call (or receive a new one) and press
d to join both active lines together for the
conference call. To terminate the conference call with the first or second party, use correspondingly
b or
c key
combinations.
Attention: Pressing

e
Call Park
Dial
f to park a call (system will play the SIP username of the first available extension configured for the call parking). Go to the
other location and call the extension that initiated the call park to pick up the parked call.
Both PBX and IP calls are allowed to use this service. For PBX calls, that extension number should be dialed. For IP calls, the Quadro
when activating the Call Park service, plays the SIP address. The system will ask for authentication and, if successfully entered, it will
resume the parked call.
f
To use the Call Park feature, the call parking service should be enabled for one or more extensions on the Quadro.
Attention: The Call Parking is valid within the timeout defined by Quadro’s administrator, during which hold music (if configured) will be
played to the parked destination party. Contact your system administrator if you need the call parking timeout to be modified. When the
Call Park timeout expires, a short ring notification will be sent to the phone initiating the call parking, and if no one picks up the parked
call, or if the phone is off the hook, the parked destination party will be automatically disconnected.

Quadro’s Auto Attendant Services
Quadro’s Auto Attendant Services
Quadro’s Auto Attendant provides remote access to the Quadro voice connectivity services. Specifically, it supports remote connection to Quadro
extensions along with their mailboxes and making pass-through calls to other destinations. Remote access to the Quadro auto attendant is possible
through IP and PSTN calls.
Quadro’s Auto Attendant can be accessed locally, remotely from the IP network (by dialing Auto Attendant’s SIP address) and from the PSTN
network (by dialing Quadro’s PSTN number) if the calls addressed to the Quadro’s PSTN number are routed to the Auto Attendant.
Attention: If the Auto Attendant authentication attempts fail consecutively five times, Quadro’s Auto Attendant will become unavailable for the next 5
minutes.
The Auto Attendant services are divided several feature groups, but only Connection Service and Extensions Directory are supported by the
voice messages which helps the caller to navigate within the area using the telephone handset buttons. Other services are available using the
appropriate call code, but are not supported by voice messages. Thus, they are hidden for external callers.
Connection Service provides access to all extensions of the Quadro
device without restrictions. All Quadro extensions may call each other
dialing the extension number. All external callers (using PSTN or IP calling)
can reach each Quadro extension dialing Quadro’s phone number and
using the Auto Attendant’s voice menu to be connected to the desired
extension by entering the extension number.
Remote Enquiry allows access to the mailboxes of Quadro’s extensions
(both, active or inactive) in order for example to check the voice messages
left for an absent user. The mailbox may be protected by a user password
(optional, set by the system administrator or user).
You may remotely access your mailbox dialing Quadro’s phone number
and using the Auto Attendant’s voice menu (key a for Voice Mail) and
entering your password (if any). To navigate within your voice mails use the
Voice Mailbox service call codes (for example dial 8 to hear the last
message in your mailbox).
Call Relay
The Quadro Auto Attendant is registered at Epygi’s SIP server by default.
It may be used similar to a private switching center if the Auto Attendant is
routed to a particular telephone line (FXO, ISDN or E1/T1) as a “default
user”. It then allows, for example, establishing cost-saving long-distance
calls via PSTN to the Quadro Auto Attendant at the United States
headquarters, via IP to the remote Quadro Auto Attendant in the Office
Asia or via PSTN to the other desired destinations (see Quadro’s Feature
Codes).
Access to Call Relay needs authorization.
Remote Configuration Menu
This menu allows extension owners to remotely enable/disable the Unconditional Call Forwarding service for all callers on the corresponding
extension, as well as to change the certain forwarding number in the Unconditional Call Forwarding table. This menu requires extension
authorization. For more details about the access key combinations, see Forwarding Management.
Call Back
With the Quadro's Call Back service the PSTN callers can save the call
charge when calling to/through the Quadro to the third party IP or PSTN
destinations. The Quadro allows you to configure a list of those trusted
PSTN callers that are allowed to make free of charge calls. Two types of
Call Back configurations are available on the Quadro: Pre-configured
Call Back and Remote Call Back Configuration.

Quadro Manual III: Extension User's Guide
Quadro’s Auto Attendant Services
Pre-configured Call Back
For Pre-configured Call Back service, a list of trusted PSTN callers must be configured into the Quadro's Authorized Phones Database using Web
Management. The Call Back service should be enabled and a valid callback PSTN destination should be specified for each PSTN caller.
To use Pre-configured Call Back, the PSTN caller registered in the Authorized Phones Database simply calls to the PSTN number attached to the
Quadro FXO line (the FXO line should be previously routed to the Auto Attendant) from the global PSTN network. Allow the call to ring twice and
then hang up. Call Back will be instantly activated and Quadro will call back to the defined Call Back destination. By answering the incoming call, the
PSTN party will be connected to the Auto Attendant menu.
Remote Call Back Configuration
Call Back settings may be configured or reconfigured by an authorized PSTN caller using a phone and calling to the Quadro's Auto Attendant. There
are two options for configuring Call Back remotely:
•
Permanent Call Back
•
Non-Permanent (Instant) Call Back
Please Note: Remote Call Back Configuration services are only available when the Automatically Enter Call Relay Menu checkbox is disabled in
the Call Back settings for the trusted user.
Permanent Call Back
This service allows the callers registered in the Authorized Phones Database to create a new trusted PSTN Caller with Call Back enabled. They can
also modify the Call Back destination of an existing PSTN Caller in the Authorized Phones Database. By calling Quadro's PSTN number (that is
previously routed to the Auto Attendant) and entering the Auto Attendant menu, the caller is able to use the g code to create a new trusted
PSTN Caller as well as to modify the Call Back destination for the already registered Caller in the Authorized Phones Database.
Entering the Permanent Call Back reconfiguration menu, the system will ask the caller to login by dialing the number and an appropriate password
for the Quadro’s extension that is used as a login extension in Call Back settings.
After entering the login successfully the PSTN callers should follow the voice instructions for configuring a new entry or reconfiguring the existing
entry in Authorized Phone database.
When the system accepts the settings, the corresponding entry will be logged to the Authorized Phones Database. The detected PSTN caller
address must correspond to the one applied by the caller, the FXO line must be available on the Quadro, there must be network connectivity and the
destination must be reachable. The PSTN caller will then be disconnected from the Quadro's Auto Attendant and the defined Call Back destination
will receive a call from the Quadro within the next 45 seconds. Answering the incoming call, the PSTN caller will be reconnected to the Quadro's
Auto Attendant.
Non-Permanent Call Back
Non-Permanent Call Back configuration service allows the trusted caller to organize one-time Call Back to the defined PSTN destination. In this
situation, no entry will be logged to the Authorized Phones Database.
By calling Quadro's PSTN number (that is previously routed to the Auto Attendant) and entering the Auto Attendant menu, the caller is able to use
the f menu to modify the Call Back destination for the already registered Caller in the Authorized Phones Database.
The system will ask the caller to login by dialing the number and an appropriate password for the Quadro’s extension that is used as login extension
in the Call Back settings.
After successful login, the PSTN callers should follow the voice instructions for reconfiguring the existing entry in Authorized Phone database.
The detected PSTN caller address must correspond to the one applied by the caller, the FXO line must be available on the Quadro, there must be
network connectivity and the destination must be reachable. The PSTN caller will then be disconnected from the Quadro's Auto Attendant and the
defined Call Back destination will receive a call from the Quadro within the next 45 seconds. Answering the incoming call, the PSTN caller will be
reconnected to the Quadro's Auto Attendant.

Quadro Manual III: Extension User's Guide
Quadro’s Auto Attendant Services
Call Routing Management Menu
This menu is used to manage the routing entries in the Call Routing
table, i.e. to enable/disable certain dialing rules by dialing key
combinations pre-configured on each routing entry.
Dialing h at the Auto Attendant welcome message, will ask for
an enabler/disabler key used to enable or disable the routing rule(s)
correspondingly. Since multiple routing rules may have the same
enabler/disabler key combinations (the same key may be used as
enabler for one routing rule, and as disabler for another one), dialing
the certain key will affect all pre-configured routing rules.
If the routing record has an authorization enabled on the
enabler/disabler key, administrator’s password will be required to be
inserted after the key. Once the administrator’s password is dialed,
system plays a confirmation about the accepted configuration and the
state of the certain routing rule(s) is getting modified.
If administrator’s password has been inserted incorrectly for 3 times,
no status changes will be applied to any of the routing record(s), even
to those which have no authorization enabled.
Mainly targeting external users, Quadro AA also provides voice
services for local users. It will be helpful if the desired extension
number is unknown.
The Extensions Directory is used to access Quadro’s extensions by
spelling names (assigned to the extensions and configured by
administrator) using the keypad of the phone. More than one name
may be assigned to an extension, reaching the extension by spelling
one of the names attached to it. If the spelled name matches to some
record in the extensions directory table, a wave file with the
extension user name (or any other information characterizing the
extension’s user) will be played to the caller. Every extension’s user
may configure these wave files individually.

Call Forwarding
Quadro offers the following types of call forwarding:
• Unconditional - all incoming calls from the certain caller will be forwarded to the defined destinations.
• Busy - calls from the certain caller will be forwarded to the defined destinations only when called extension is busy with another call.
• No Answer - calls from the certain caller will be forwarded to the defined destinations only when called extension is unable to answer the
incoming call. No answer timeout is configured from the General Settings page.
The following rules are applicable to all call forwarding types:
• By setting up unconditional call forwarding service, Many Extension Ringing and Call Hunting services will be automatically disabled.
The exception is cases when unconditional call forwarding is enabled from the handset (see Feature Codes).
• PSTN destinations (with PSTN or Auto call type) have priority in Forward to list. If there are different destinations in the Forward to list,
the call will be forwarded to PSTN destination (in the same time any available SIP or PBX destinations will receive a short ring). If the
PSTN destination was not successful, the next PSTN destination will be dialed, otherwise if there are no more PSTN destinations in the
table, the call will be forwarded to the first SIP or PBX destination.
• If there are multiple entries with PBX or SIP call types, or PBX and SIP call types together, then all destinations will ring simultaneously
and the call will be established with the destination that will pick up the call the first.
• Unconditional call forwarding service has higher priority versus to other forwarding types, i.e. when Unconditional Call Forwarding is
enabled, Busy Forwarding and No Answer Forwarding services will not work even if they are enabled. In the meantime, Busy Forwarding
can work in conjunction with No Answer Forwarding and vice versa.
Unconditional Call Forwarding
Unconditional Call Forwarding is a service of Quadro that allows the automatic unconditional transfer of incoming calls to a variety of other

called extension is unable to pick up the call. No answer timeout is configured from the Basic Services page.
The Enable Service checkbox selection activates the no
answer call forwarding service on the current extension.
The table displayed here lists the destinations where the
incoming call from a particular caller should be forwarded
to if the called extension is unable to answer the call.
Add opens the Add Entry page to add forwarding
destinations. It consists of the following components:
Call Type lists the available call types:
•
PBX - forwarding destination is a local Quadro
extensions or Auto Attendant
•
SIP – forwarding destination is reached through a
SIP server
•
•
PSTN – forwarding destination is a PSTN user
Auto – used for undefined call types. In this case,
routing pattern will be considered here and parsed
through Local Routing Table.
Fig. III-32 No Answer Call Forwarding page
The Forward To text field requires the SIP address (see chapter Entering a SIP Addresses correctly), extension or PSTN number, where incoming
call from the certain caller should be forwarded in case the called extension does not answers the call. If the address already exists in the table,
selecting Save will display the error “Caller address already exists”. A wildcard is allowed in this field (see chapter Entering a SIP Addresses
correctly). Entering “*” as PBX or PSTN addresses will apply configuration of Caller ID Based services to all extensions or PSTN users.
Two digits should be inserted into the Forward To text field for the PBX call type. The PSTN number length depends on the area code and phone
number.
Send Notification Via SMS checkbox enables SMS notifications sending to the user’s mobile phone when no answer call forwarding on the
corresponding extension from the certain caller takes place. This checkbox selection enables the Mobile Number text field where the user’s mobile
phone number should be defined. If you feel this service is not working, contact your system administrator to configure the SMS Settings.
Send E-mail checkbox enables email notifications sending to the user’s mailbox when no answer call forwarding on the corresponding extension
from the certain caller takes place. This checkbox selection enables the E-mail Address text field where the user’s email address should be defined.
If you feel this service is not working, contact your system administrator to configure the Mail Settings.
When saving the busy call forwarding configuration, a message will notify the user that Many Extensions Ringing and Call Hunting services have
been disabled.

The Autoredial Settings page displays the available settings for automated redialing. Use the appropriate calling code to enable Autoredial from
the handset. The caller may hang up or stay with the lifted handset after enabling the Autoredial service. When hanging up, the system will keep
trying to reach the last called destination for the specified time period. When the destination is reached, the caller’s phone will start to ring. A voice
message is being played to the called party asking to wait until the caller answers. If the caller keeps the handset lifted, the system will also continue
to reach the last called destination and the call will be established when the destination called answers the call.
Autoredial Interval sets the time values between redialing attempts (counted in seconds).
Autoredial Period sets the total duration of redial attempts (counted in minutes).
Please Note: This service is functional for SIP and PBX calls only. For PSTN calls, this feature works as a single redial (with no multiple attempts to
reach the called destination).
Hold Music
The Hold Music Settings are used to define the music that will be played while on hold or putting a remote party on hold. To specify this music the
following checkboxes and text fields are available:
Send Hold Music to Remote IP Party enables the specified
music for sending to a remote IP party whenever the remote
party on hold and waiting. If this checkbox is disabled, Quadro
will not send hold music to the remote party. The remote party
will hear their own hold music, or something similar, if
configured.
The Listen Hold Music drop down list specifies the music the
current user will hear while on hold. It offers the following
options:
•
Off - no music will be played.
•
Own Music - the current user will define the music
that will be played to them self while being on hold.
•
Remote Party's Music - the current user will hear
the remote party's hold music, if enabled, and sent by
Fig. III-35 Basic Services - Hold Music Settings page
remote party.
Restore Default Hold Music File enables the default music. If the checkbox is selected, the text field Upload New Hold Music File will be disabled.
The Upload New Hold Music File text field can be used to enter the path where the hold music file is located. If the hold music file is browsed with
the help of file-chooser, this field displays the path of the browsed file. The Browse button is used to browse for the hold music file.
The music file needs to be in PCMU wave format, otherwise the system will prevent uploading the file and will display the warning message "Invalid
audio file or format is not supported". Additionally, the system will refuse uploading if insufficient memory is available for the corresponding extension
and will then announce "You do not have enough space".
Please Note: It is recommended to use a piece of music not longer than one minute to leave enough space for user-defined messages and voice
mails.
The Download Hold Music File link appears only if a file has been uploaded recently. It downloads the audio file to the PC and opens a window
where the saving location can be specified.
Do Not Disturb
Do Not Disturb Settings are used to configure the Do Not Disturb service. The service is used to turn off the phone ringer and may only be
enabled from the handset with the appropriate calling code.
The Do Not Disturb Settings page consists of the following components:
The Actual State field indicates the state of the service (active or not active). It also indicates the time left until the end of Do Not Disturb service
functionality or "Service is not active" if the service is disabled.
The Expiration Timeout drop down list is used to choose
the period for the phone ringer to be off when enabling the
Do Not Disturb service.
The Send Message to Caller Party checkbox enables a
voice message notification to be sent to the caller. When
both the Send Message to Caller Party checkbox and the
Do Not Disturb feature are enabled on the called
extension, a voice message that the called destination is
temporarily unavailable will be played to the caller. If
checkbox is not selected, callers will be routed to the voice
mailbox (if enabled) or unconditionally disconnected. The
extension can be reached again as soon as the service is
disabled or the Expire Timeout period is over.

•
SIP – calls through a SIP server
Auto – destination (independent on whether it is a PBX
number, a SIP address or a PSTN number) will be reached
through Routing.
Depending on the Call Type selection, a destination extension
number, a SIP address (see chapter Entering a SIP Addresses
correctly), or a PSTN number should be inserted into the text field
Called Address. If the defined caller address is not corresponding
to these requirements, an error message, "Caller address is
incorrect", will appear and prevent saving the incorrect data. The
PSTN number length depends on the area code and the phone
number.

A
Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line (ADSL) - is a method for moving data over regular phone lines. An ADSL circuit is much faster than a regular
phone connection, and the wires coming into the subscriber's premises are the same (copper) wires used for regular phone service. An ADSL circuit
must be configured to connect two specific locations, similar to a leased line. A commonly discussed configuration of ADSL would allow a subscriber
to receive data (download) at speeds of up to 1.544 Megabits per second, and to send (upload) data at speeds of 128 kilobits per second. Thus the
'Asymmetric' part of the acronym. Another commonly discussed configuration would be symmetrical: 384 kilobits per second in both directions. In
theory ADSL allows download speeds of up to 9 megabits per second and upload speeds of up to 640 kilobits per second. ADSL is often discussed
as an alternative to ISDN, allowing higher speeds in cases where the connection is always to the same place.

forwards the results. The big advantage of DSPs lies in their programmability. DSPs can be used to compress voice signals to as little as 4,800 bps.
DSPs are an integral part of all voice processing systems and fax machines.
Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) - public network technology that delivers high bandwidth over conventional copper wiring at limited distances. There
are four types of DSL: ADSL, HDSL, SDSL, and VDSL. All are provisioned via modem pairs, with one modem located at a central office and the
other at the customer site. Since most DSL technologies do not use the entire bandwidth of the twisted pair, there remains room for a voice channel.
Distinctive Ringing - Quadro service that allows a specific ringing pattern assignment for particular callers over Quadro.
Domain - a place on the Internet you can visit with your browser, i.e., a www site. It also might be a single computer or computers masqueraded as a

Virtual Private Network (VPN) - connects two local networks (intranets) over the insecure Internet securely. VPN routers manage authentication
between servers and clients and handle data encryption for the connection. Only authorized users can access the network and the data exchange
cannot be intercepted. A VPN includes authentication and encryption to protect data integrity and confidentiality. VPNs are “virtual” in the sense that
individuals can use the public Internet as a means of securely accessing an internal network. Once the VPN connection is established, users have
access to the same network resources, addresses, and so forth as if they were connected locally. VPNs are “private” because the data is encrypted
between two VPN gateways. Encryption makes it very difficult for anyone to intercept data and capture sensitive information such as passwords.
