Installation
Overview
This guide explains how to install the PARTNER® Plus Communications System.
It begins with an example system setup, then follows with an illustration of the
components you need to install the system and general guidelines to consider
before installation. Next, it provides step-by-step instructions for connecting
and testing the components for initial installation and upgrades. Finally, it ends
with important system specifications and requirements.
If your company already has modular jacks for all outside lines and extensions,
you may be able to use the existing wiring to install the system hardware and
connect telephones to the system yourself. To have an AT&T service technician
install and customize your system or change existing wiring, call 1 800 247-7000
(in the continental U.S. only) or call your AT&T Authorized Dealer.
After installation, refer to the PARTNER Plus Communications System
Programming and Use guide for programming instructions.
Overview
1
An Example System Setup
The next page shows a control unit with two 206 modules and
two 400 modules, giving the system a capacity of 12 outside
lines and 12 extensions. Although your system may differ, this
example will give you an idea of the types of equipment you
can connect to it. In the example, system phones and
industry-standard devices are connected to nine extensions.
The circled numbers in the figure refer to the following list,
which gives a brief description of the system’s hardware
components.
Control Unit
The control unit consists of these components:
Backplane. The backplane channels power to the
system and connects the system modules.
206 Modules. Each 206 module has jacks for two lines
and six extensions.
400 Modules. Each 400 module provides four line jacks
but no extensions. Notice that the 400 modules are
installed to the right of the 206 modules.
Processor Module. The processor module contains the
software that provides the system’s features. It also has
PAGE, SMDR, and MUSIC ON HOLD jacks.
PAGE Jack. A loudspeaker paging system plugs
directly into this modular jack. The system is compatible
with any AT&T paging system, including the AT&T
PagePac6® shown here.
SMDR Jack. A call reporting (or SMDR-Station
Message Detail Recording) device connects directly to
this jack. AT&T’s Call Accounting Terminal serial printer
and box are shown here.
MUSIC ON HOLD Jack. AT&T’s Magic on Hold® is
connected to this jack to provide customized music and
messages for callers on hold. Other types of audio
equipment (including a CD player, cassette player, or
stereo receiver) can be connected using an audio cord
with an RCA phono plug (not supplied).
If you use equipment that rebroadcasts music or other
copyrighted materials, you may be required to obtain a
license from a third party such as ASCAP or BMI. Or you
can purchase a Magic On Hold system from AT&T,
which does not required you to obtain such as license.
Line Jacks. The top two jacks on each 206 module, and
all four jacks on each 400 module, connect to outside
telephone lines.
Extension Jacks. The bottom six jacks on each 206
module connect inside wiring for telephones and other
telecommunications equipment.
Network Interface Jacks. These jacks provide access
to telephone lines from the local telephone company.
Each outside line is connected to the system by
plugging one end of the line cord into one of these jacks,
and the other end into a line jack on a 206 or 400 module.
Extensions
Various devices—including system phones and industrystandard devices—can be connected to the modular wall
jacks. The modular wall jacks connect to the extension jacks
in the control unit by way of the building’s inside wiring.
Extension 10: These devices are connected:
■
MLS-34D® Display Phone. Typically, the
receptionist on extension 10 has an MLS-34D display
phone like the one shown here. The display shows
the time, dialed numbers, the duration of calls, and
programming messages.
An MLS-34D, MLS-18D®, or MLS-12D® is required
for system programming at extension 10 or 11, or
both. Use an MLS-18D only if there are no MLS-34D
phones in the system; use an MLS-12D only if there
are no MLS-34D or MLS-18D phones in the system.
■
Call Assistant™ Intercom Autodialer. An Intercom
Autodialer is connected to the phone, for dialing
extensions and transferring calls to them with one
touch and for seeing which extensions are busy.
■
Standard Touch-Tone Phone. During a power
failure, the MLS-34D phone on extension 10 will not
work, but the receptionist can use the standard phone
to place and receive calls on line 1.
Extension 11: MLS-34D Display Phone. Another
MLS-34D is connected to programming extension 11.
This means you can program the system from this
extension while the receptionist at extension 10 is free to
handle calls.
Extension 12: MLS-18D Phone and Answering
Machine. An MLS-18D phone and an answering
machine are connected to this extension.
Extension 13: Standard Phone. A standard phone
(such as you might have in your home) is connected
directly to the extension jack.
Extension 14: Doorphone. A doorphone is installed at
the building entrance. When someone at the entrance
presses the button on the doorphone, the designated
extensions in the office signal automatically. (Any
number of extensions can be designated as doorphone
alert extensions.)
Extension 15: Bell. A loud bell is connected directly to
this extension jack. Any line programmed to ring on
extension 15 activates the loud bell—to alert users of an
incoming call in a large area, such as a warehouse.
Extension 16: MLS-12D Display Phone. This display
phone can handle 10 outside lines.
Extension 17: Fax Machine and Standard Phone. A
fax machine and standard phone share this extension.
This lets you have the use of another phone when the fax
machine is idle. (You can use a system phone at
another extension to monitor fax machine activity—see
“Fax Management Feature” of “Using Fax Machines” in
Chapter 4 of the PARTNER Plus Communications System
Programming and Use guide.)
Extension 18: MLC-6 Cordless Phone. An AT&T
MLC-6 cordless phone is connected to this extension. It
works like the corded MLS-6® system phone.

Required Parts
You will have up to three types of system component packages; Figure 1 shows
the contents of each package in the area marked by a dashed line. Check your
packages to be sure you have the parts shown here (if not, call for support as
instructed on the inside front cover).
Figure 1. Required Parts
You will need to obtain four #12 screws of the appropriate type for the wall and
weight of the control unit (a control unit with four 206 modules and a processor
module weighs approximately 27.5 pounds or 12.3 kilograms).
In addition, if you need modular telephone cords for connecting the extension
jacks on the control unit to the modular connecting blocks for extensions in the
equipment room, short telephone cords for wall mounting MLS-model phones,
or a 355A/355AF adapter and D8W telephone cord for connecting a call
reporting device, order them before installation. Refer to “Product Ordering
Information” in Appendix B of the PARTNER Plus Communications System
Programming and Use guide for ordering instructions.
Hereafter, references to 206 modules include 206E and all 206 modules used
with previous releases of the product. Similarly, references to 400 modules
include 400E and all 400 modules used with previous releases of the product.

Required Parts
NOTE:
A system display phone—either an MLS-34D, MLS-18D, or MLS-12D—is
required for system programming at extension 10 and/or 11. (Make sure that
the programming phone is as large as the largest phone in the system, because
an MLS-12D or MLS-18D cannot program an MLS-34D. Similarly, an MLS-12D
cannot program an MLS-18D.)
Installation Guidelines
Telephones and Devices
You can connect the following telephones and devices to the system:
■
MLS- and MLC-Model System Phones. System phones require at least
two-pair wiring and are compatible with AT&T 4-pair SYSTIMAX® wiring.
■
Call Assistant Intercom Autodialers with Busy Indication
(MLS-CA24). You can connect an Intercom Autodialer to the system
phone at extensions 10 and 11 (maximum two per system). The Intercom
Autodialer has its own power supply, which must be plugged into an AC
outlet.
■
Industry-Standard Devices. Industry-standard devices (including
standard phones) require one-pair mounting cords; AT&T D2R mounting
cords are recommended.
– Standard Phones. Connect standard touch-tone or rotary dial
phones to the system for:
– Power Failure Operation. During a power failure, system phones
will not work because they require power to operate. However, if
you connect standard phones to extensions 10, 16, 22, and 28,
users can place and answer outside calls on lines 1, 3, 5, and 7,
respectively. You can connect a standard phone either alone or
combined with a system phone. (If you combine a standard
phone and a system phone on one extension, you may want to
turn off the standard phone’s ringer during normal use.)
– Hotlines. A hotline extension should be connected to a standard
phone, rather than a system telephone, but can ring any type of
phone. An internal hotline phone can also be set up to ring the
paging system, so announcements can be made over the
loudspeaker. Do not connect a Hotline phone to extension 10, 16,
22, or 28, to keep them available for power failure use.
NOTE:
For message waiting capability, you must connect standard phones
with message waiting lights to Release 3.1 (R3.1) 206 modules, and
equip the system with an R3.1 processor module. This message
waiting capability does not apply to standard phones with neon-type
message waiting lights.
Installation Guidelines
5
– Auxiliary Equipment. There are a variety of ways to set up fax
machines, modems, and answering machines to work with the system.
See Chapter 4 in the PARTNER Plus Communications System
Programming and Use guide for advice on using this equipment. To
connect a telephone and a standard device on the same extension,
see “Combination Extensions” on page 6.
■
Doorphones. You can connect up to two doorphones to the system. Do
not connect doorphones to extension 10, 11, 16, 17, 22, 23, 28, or 29.
■
Voice Messaging Systems. The system supports either of the following
voice messaging systems:
– The PARTNER MAIL VS™ System. This system, which resembles a
206 module, resides in the control unit and provides voice messaging
capabilities for up to 10 subscribers. An optional Mailbox Expansion
Card can extend service for up to 20 subscribers.
– The PARTNER MAIL™ System. You can connect either a 2-port
system, which connects to two extension jacks and supports up to 20
subscribers, or a 4-port system, which connects to four extension
jacks and supports up to 40 subscribers. Do not connect PARTNER
MAIL to extension 10, 16, 22, or 28 to keep them available for power
failure use.
■
Call Reporting Devices. You can connect either a serial printer or a call
accounting device, such as AT&T’s Call Accounting Terminal, to the
SMDR jack on the processor module for recording and/or analyzing call
activity.
■
In-Range Out-of-Building Protectors. Installing phones in a different
building from the control unit requires AT&T In-Range Out-of-Building
(IROB) protectors, to prevent damage due to lightning. (IROBs must be
installed by a qualified technician.)
Combination Extensions
You can connect a standard device (such as a standard phone or an answering
machine) on an extension by itself, or so that it shares an extension with another
piece of equipment (either another standard device or a system phone). An
extension with two devices connected to it is called a combination extension.
You cannot install two system phones on the same extension, and the combined
REN (Ringer Equivalence Number) of two devices on one extension cannot
exceed 2.0. (The REN for a system phone is 0.0.)
If your system phone has a built-in auxiliary jack, you can connect a standard
device directly to the phone, without using a bridging adapter—see “Using A
Direct Connection” on the next page. If your system phone does not provide a
built-in auxiliary jack or if you want to connect two standard devices together,
you must use an AT&T 267F2 bridging adapter—see “Using a Bridging
Adapter” on the next page.
NOTE:
The Call Assistant Intercom Autodialer is not regarded as a standard device.
This means you can connect a standard device to a system phone that also has
an autodialer installed.

Installation Procedures
Before installing the system, be sure you read the safety
instructions on page ii.
WARNING:
There are no customer-serviceable components
inside the system modules or backplane. There are
hazardous voltages within that can cause severe or
fatal personal injury. DO NOT OPEN THE MODULES.
Installing the Control Unit and Modules
Install the control unit’s backplane within five feet (1.5
meters) of a properly grounded AC electrical outlet (not
controlled by a switch) and the network interface jacks.
In addition, when you mount the backplane on the wall,
leave at least six inches (15.2 cm) of clearance at the top
and sides, and two feet (0.6 meters) at the front and
bottom to ensure proper ventilation.

locking tab. Do not force the module. If it
does not insert easily, remove the module,
clear any obstruction, and reinsert.
A)
Slide the first 206 module into the leftmost slot of
the backplane. (The system will not work if a
206 module is not installed in this slot.)
B)
Going from left to right, install 206 modules first,
then any 400 (or 200) modules. The 400
modules should always be to the right of all
206 modules, so the extensions will be
numbered consecutively. Hold down the
locking tab and align the dovetail guides on
the sides of the module with the guides on any
previously inserted modules.
Installation Procedures

Installation Procedures
Assembling System Phones
You can either desk mount or wall mount a system
phone. If the system phone is manufactured with a
separate stand, you can use the stand to either wall
mount the phone or raise the angle of the phone when
desk mounting. (The stand is required for MLS-34D
phones.) Alternatively, some system phones—such as
the MLS-18D—are manufactured with a fixed stand. Any
instructions below for installing the stand do not apply to
this type of phone. (Wall mounting is not recommended
for display phones.)

Mounting,” Step 1A, and label the button
sheet as in Steps 3A and 3B.
Connecting and Testing Telephones
1
To connect a phone, plug the modular telephone
mounting cord into a modular wall jack or directly into a
206 module extension jack. (If you are connecting a
standard phone and its mounting cord is loose, try an
AT&T D2R mounting cord instead.)
To install two phones (or other devices) on a single
extension jack, see “Combination Extensions” earlier
in this guide
2
A)
Test the phone for proper operation. To test the
power and lights on a system phone: while
the phone is idle, press and hold the [ # ]
button for five seconds.
B)
Before releasing the [ # ] button, lift the handset.
All lights should light, the ringer should sound,
and (on the MLS-34D, MLS-18D, or MLS-12D
phones only) a test pattern should appear on
the display. (If not, call the appropriate
support telephone number as instructed on
the inside front cover of this guide.)
C)
Replace the handset; the phone is now in normal
operating mode.

2
Insert the modular plug into the PAGE jack on the
processor module.
Route the cord as you did for line and extension
cords, then connect it to the paging system.
Music-on-Hold Audio Source
If you use equipment to broadcast certain copyrighted
music or material, including songs or other material from
radio broadcasts, you may be required to obtain the
permission of the copyright owner. One way to obtain
permission is to contact ASCAP, BMI, and/or similar
performing rights organizations, to obtain a license. Or,
you can purchase a Magic on Hold system from AT&T,
which does not require you to obtain such a license.
AT&T disclaims any liability arising out of the failure to
obtain such a license, if required.
