1. The grant of a Telepermit for any item of terminal equipment indicates only that Telecom has
accepted that the item complies with minimum conditions for connection to its network. It
indicates no endorsement of the product by Telecom, nor does it provide any sort of
warranty. Above all, it provides no assurance that any item will work correctly in all respects
with another item of Telepermitted equipment of a different make or model, nor does it imply
that any product is compatible with all of Telecom’s network services.
14
2. This equipment does not fully meet Telecom’s impedance requirements. Performance
limitations may occur when used in conjunction with some parts of the network. Telecom will
accept no responsibility should difficulties arise in such circumstances.
3. This equipment should not be used under any circumstances which may constitute a
nuisance to other Telecom customers.
4. This equipment shall not be set up to make automatic calls to the Telecom “111” Emergency
Service.
5. This equipment is not capable, under all operating conditions, of correct operation at the
higher speeds for which it is designed. Telecom will accept no responsibility should
difficulties arise in such circumstances.
6. Some parameters required for compliance with Telecom’s Telepermit requirements are
dependent on the equipment (PC) associated with this device. The associated equipment
shall be set to operate within the following limits for compliance with Telecom’s
Specifications:
• There shall be no more than 10 call attempts to the same number within any 30 minute
period for any single manual call initiation.
• The equipment shall go on-hook for a period of not less than 30 seconds between the end
of one attempt and the beginning of the next call attempt.
• Automatic calls to different numbers are spaced such that there is no less than 5 seconds
between the end of one call attempt and the beginning of another.
• Equipment shall be set to ensure that calls are answered between 3 and 30 seconds of
receipt of ringing.
7. Many CPE devices have features such as “last number redial” or “memory dial” which
depend on a small on-hook line current for the maintenance of memory information. Such
terminal devices used with the series connected device may lose their memory functions.
8. Telepermitted equipment only may be connected to the EXT telephone port. This port is not
specifically designed for 3-wire-connected equipment. 3-wire-connected equipment might
not respond to incoming ringing when attached to this port.
9. In the event of any problem with this device, it is to be disconnected, and a CPE item
connected to one of its terminal ports may be connected directly in its place. The user should
then arrange for the product to be repaired. Should the matter be reported to Telecom as a
wiring fault, and the fault is proven to be due to this product, a call-out charge will be
incurred by the customer.
10. If a charge for local calls is unacceptable, the “Dial” button should NOT be used for local
calls. Only the 7-digits of the local number should be dialled from your telephone. DO NOT
dial the area code digit or the “0” prefix.
11. This equipment may not provide for the effective hand-over of a call to another device
connected to the same line.
12. This unit will only work in conjunction with a tone signalling (DTMF) telephone, but some
telephones may not be compatible. Since noise or speech from the telephone can upset
dialling from this unit, errors may result if the devices are used together in other than quiet
conditions.
15
13. Where it is necessary to dial prefix digits, such as a Caller Display override code (“0196” or
“0197”), this unit will have to be used in conjunction with an associated tone signalling
(DTMF) telephone.
14. Note that some telephones are NOT compatible with this unit and dialling errors may result if
the two devices are used together in other than quiet conditions. The Telecom Faults Service
is NOT to be called should such problems arise. In such cases, it is recommended that the
prefix and wanted number are dialled manually.
15. The answer delay setting of this equipment shall not be set to less than the default setting as
this will destroy Caller ID information.
16. The caller ID telephone numbers which are displayed and stored in this equipment include
the caller’s area code or cellular code but do not include the toll access “0” prefix. When
calling back it is necessary to add a “0” to the telephone number, or if the telephone number
is a local number, omit the area code digit. If the toll services of a service provider other than
Telecom are being used then a toll charge may be incurred if the “0” prefix toll access code
and area code are used.
17. When using the Caller Line Identification incorporated in this device, verify the integrity of the
recorded digits prior to dialling.
