FCC WARNING STATEMENT
Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Rules require that you be notified of the following:
● This
equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed
and used in accordance with the instruction manual, may cause interference to radio
communications.
● It
has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class A computing device pursuant
to Subpart J of Part 15 of FCC Rules, which are designed to provide reasonable protection
against such interference when operated in a commercial environment.
● Operation
of this equipment in a residential area is likely to cause interference in which case the
user at his or her own expense will be required to take whatever measures may be required to
correct the interference.
SECURITY OF YOUR SYSTEM—PREVENTING TOLL FRAUD
As a customer of a new telephone system, you should be aware that there exists an increasing
problem of telephone toll fraud. Telephone toll fraud can occur in many forms, despite the
numerous efforts of telephone companies and telephone equipment manufacturers to control it.
Some individuals use electronic devices to prevent or falsify records of these calls. Others
charge calls to someone else’s number by illegally using lost or stolen calling cards, billing
incorrect parties, clipping on to someone else’s line, and breaking into someone else’s telephone
equipment physically or electronically. In certain instances, unauthorized individuals make
connections to the telephone network through the use of remote access features.
The Remote Access feature of your system, if you chose to utilize it, permits off-premises callers
to access the system from a remote telephone by using an 800 number or a 7- or 10- digit
telephone number. The system returns an acknowledgement signaling the user to key in his or
her authorization code, which is selected and administered by the system manager. After the
authorization code is accepted, the system returns dial tone to the user. If you do not program
specific egress restrictions, the user will be able to place any call normally dialed from a
telephone associated with the system. Such an off-premises network call is originated at, and
will be billed from, the system location,
The Remote Access feature, as designed, helps the customer, through proper administration, to
minimize the ability of unauthorized persons to gain access to the network. Most commonly,
phone numbers and codes are compromised when overheard in a public location, through theft
of a wallet or purse containing access information, or through carelessness (writing codes on a
piece of paper and improperly discarding it). Additionally, hackers may use a computer to “dial”
an access code and then publish the information to other hackers. Enormous charges can be
run up quickly. It is the customer’s responsibility to take the appropriate steps to properly
implement the features, evaluate and administer the various restriction levels, protect access
codes, and distribute access codes only to individuals who have been fully advised of the
sensitive nature of the access information.
Common carriers are required by law to collect their tariffed charges. While these charges are
fraudulent charges made by persons with criminal intent, applicable tariffs state that the customer
of record is responsible for payment of all long-distance or other network charges. AT&T cannot
be responsible for such charges and will not make any allowance or give any credit for charges
that result from unauthorized access.
To minimize the risk of unauthorized access to your communications system:
●
Use a nonpublished Remote Access number.
●
Assign authorization codes randomly to users on a “need-to-have” basis, keeping a log
of ALL authorized users and assigning one code per person.
●
Use random sequence authorization codes, which are less likely to be broken.
●
Deactivate all unassigned codes promptly.
●
Ensure that Remote Access users are aware of their responsibility to keep the telephone
numbers and any authorization codes secure.
●
When possible, restrict the off-network capability of off-premises callers, via use of Call
Restrictions and Disallowed List capabilities.
●
When possible, block out-of-hours calling.
●
Frequently monitor system call detail reports for quicker detection of any unauthorized or
abnormal calling patterns.
●
Limit Remote Call Forward to persons on a “need-to-know” basis.
DANGER
The AT&T System 25 cabinets are not user serviceable.
Some voltages inside the cabinets are hazardous. This
equipment is to be serviced only by qualified technicians.

OVERVIEW
be used to set up connections between data terminals, word processors, personal
computers, and host computers. System 25 uses intelligent port circuits equipped with
distributed network processor elements to provide (essentially) nonblocking voice and data
switching.
Voice communications features combine traditional telephone features, such as Transfer and
Hold, with advanced features, such as Individual and Group Coverage, Hands-Free Answer
On Intercom, and Speed Dialing (see Section 2, “Features and Services”).
Data communications features provide switched data connections supporting transmission of
voice and data over Premises Distribution System wiring. Data connections can be made
between two digital data modules (asynchronous data units), between two analog modems,
or between an analog modem and a digital data module. System 25 also provides access to
STARLAN NETWORKS (Release 2 of STARLAN only). The system has data modules that
provide a RS-232 interface for full duplex, asynchronous, transmission of data up to 19,200
bps, and an integrated 212A-compatible modem pool resource.
System 25’s Integrated Solution offers customers a unique package of integrated call
management, switch management, and office automation applications. The Integrated
Solution is a set of application programs that run on a Master Controller (UNIX® PC). The
applications include Advanced Administration Software (AAS), which permits customers to
administer System 25’s features themselves; Call Accounting System (CAS); and an
integrated Voice Message System (VMS) that provides call coverage, leave word calling,
automated attendant, and voice mail services. In addition, a number of generic office
automation applications (word processing, data base management, and spreadsheet) are
also available for the Integrated Solution; these applications may be run simultaneously with
the VMS and CAS applications.

OVERVIEW
Business Communications Needs
The remainder of this section describes how System 25’s features may be used to satisfy a
customer’s communications needs. This material may be thought of as the reverse of the
“Features and Services” in Section 2.
The business communications capabilities of the majority of small businesses with more than
30 phones are provided by a PBX. System 25 is a PBX designed to meet the business
communications needs of customers in the 30 to 150 station range.
The communications needs of most business customers falls into five basic categories.
Customer experience has shown that a PBX needs to provide—
●
Prompt handling of incoming calls to maximize revenue opportunities and client
satisfaction,
●
Ease of access to and cost control of outgoing calls over public network and private
facilities,
●
Easy movement of calls between on-premises phones and between on-premises and
off-premises phones,
●
Sharing of data between PCs and/or host computers and data terminals, and
●
Growth and rearrangement of facilities.
The following pages outline System 25’s outstanding ability to provide these services.
Incoming Business Communications
Successful call termination is the key to capturing all incoming communications associated
with revenue issues, client inquiries, decision data, etc. Call termination involves identifying
the called party and routing the call to a primary or secondary answering position. System
25 provides powerful tools for both call screening and call termination.
●
Attendant Consoles allow one or two attendants to answer, screen, and steer
incoming calls using either Direct Trunk or Switched Loop operation. With attendant
operation, incoming calls can be screened and extended to the appropriate party for
resolution or forwarded to alternate locations, and messages can be taken for absent
clients. Calls may arrive over any of the network facilities described in later sections
of these notes.
●
System 25’s Integrated Solution can provide Automated Attendant service, either
reducing the volume of calls your attendant needs to handle or providing off-hour
attendant service.
●
Direct Inward Dialing allows incoming callers to reach specific individuals or facilities
without attendant assistance. This allows specific numbers to be advertised for
direct customer access to brokers, emergency services, etc., over a shared pool of
DID trunks.
1-5
`OVERVIEW
●
The Call Management System provides Automatic Call Distribution (ACD) service and
associated call traffic and agent performance reports.
●
Direct Group Calling (DGC) allows incoming calls to be directed to a specific group of
stations. Calls to a DGC group hunt for an idle station in a circular manner, starting
at the station following the last one called. If all group members are busy, calls are
queued and can be sent to a delay announcement. A DGC group can terminate calls
to sales, services, computer, announcement, etc., over either ordinary CO trunks or
DID trunks.
●
Personal Lines provide dedicated outside lines for multiline voice terminal users and
are accessed via a dedicated button for both incoming and outgoing service. Up to
16 terminals may share a Personal Line with up to 4 parties simultaneously off-hook.
A personal line provides direct access to brokers, emergency service, etc., over a
dedicated loop start or ground start trunk.
●
Call Waiting lets users know that they have another incoming call and helps avoid
missing important calls.
●
Remote Access allows employees to use the services and facilities of System 25
from home or when they are on the road. Barrier codes prevent unauthorized
access.
Frequently, the called party is not available to handle an incoming call. System 25 provides a
number of methods for redirecting incoming calls to alternate resources.
1-6
●
Coverage allows calls that are not answered within a specified number of rings to be
redirected to an individual covering station and/or a group of covering stations. This
is especially useful for Boss-Secretary arrangements, staff backup, and message
service. This feature is versatile enough to permit suitable alternate answering
arrangements for virtually every level of employee. Special features, such as the
Send All Calls feature which routes a user’s calls directly to covering station(s),
accommodate the day-to-day variations that occur in an employee’s work schedule.
●
Following and Forwarding allow users who are away from their normal locations to
receive their calls at other phones inside the system or (Forwarding only) outside the
system. This feature supports roving personnel and shared office space for
company staff.
●
The Integrated Solution can provide call coverage service, along with integrated voice
mail and Leave Word Calling.
●
The Bridging feature permits calls on a user’s System Access buttons to be
answered at another station on Bridged Access buttons.
●
The cordless telephone set allow users who are away from their normal locations to
receive their calls at other locations within 1000 feet (maximum based on
environmental conditions) of the base unit. This telephone supports personnel who
are frequently away from their desks.
OVERVIEW
●
Station Hunting provides automatic redirection of incoming calls to an idle member of
a hunt group when the called party is busy.
●
Pickup allows a user to answer a call ringing at another terminal. Directed Pickup
allows a user to answer a call ringing at any terminal by dialing the pickup code and
the Personal Dial Code (PDC) of the ringing station. Group Pickup permits calls to
any other terminal in the pickup group to be answered by dialing the group call
pickup code. With Pickup, users do not have to leave their phone to answer other’s
calls. This feature is especially useful for local coverage in group offices not
supported by secretarial service and equipped with economical single-line phones.
When alternate resources are not available to handle an incoming call, System 25 provides
for attendant handling of the call utilizing camp-on, redirection, and/or message service.
●
Camp-On allows the attendant to extend an outside call to a busy station. A burst of
tone is heard at the called station to notify the user of the camped-on call. The caller
is placed on hold and hears music-on-hold, if available. When the user hangs up, the
camped-on call begins ringing immediately. The Return Coverage on Busy feature
returns unanswered camped-on calls to the attendant for service after a specified
interval.
●
Return Coverage on Don’t Answer returns unanswered attendant-extended calls for
additional service (redirection/messaging).
●
Messaging Service supports activation of a light-emitting diode (LED) at the called
station to indicate that the attendant, message desk, or another station has a
message for the user.
Special arrangements are needed to handle incoming calls during periods when the normal
staff is not available, for example, at night and on weekends. System 25’s Night Service
feature allows on-duty personnel to answer incoming attendant-seeking calls when the
attendant is not on duty. Directed Night Service redirects incoming attendant-seeking calls to
designated voice terminals, such as a guard desk or coverage position. Trunk-AnswerFrom-Any-Station (TAAS) Night Service allows users to answer incoming calls from any
station by dialing the Night Service access code. Night personnel can be alerted by a night
bell.
Outgoing Business Communications
One of the key functions of a customer premises communications system is to provide easy
access to the most cost effective network facilities for outgoing calls. The system needs to
be capable of steering calls based on cost, and must also keep records of incoming and
outgoing calls and associated costs. Building on its ground start trunk capability, System 25
features control costs and record usage as follows.
●
Call Restrictions allow the manager to restrict users from making certain types of
calls. Restriction is administered through outward restriction, toll call restriction, and
facility access restriction.
1-7
OVERVIEW
●
Automatic Route Selection provides manager defined routing of calls over the
telecommunications network based on preferred routes (normally the least expensive
route available at the time the call is placed) with capacity for multiple common
carriers and routing through tandem switch points. The user dials a standard Direct
Distance Dialing (DDD) number and the system selects the call route.
●
Station Message Detail Recording (SMDR) generates detailed call information on all
incoming and outgoing calls and sends this information to an output device (PC or
printer).
●
Call Accounting Systems provide multiple types of customer reports on
communication costs and usage.
●
Account Code Entry allows a user to associate calls with an account code for
charge-back purposes. This feature can be administrated (on a per-station basis) to
force the entry of the required codes before outgoing calls can be made.
Ease of access to multiple types of network facilities (provided for minimum cost) is managed
by the following features.
1-8
●
Automatic Route Selection (ARS) allows the customer to dial a standard DDD
number. ARS selects the preferred route and does any number conversions required
for the facilities selected.
●
System 25’s Virtual Facility feature provides convenient and inexpensive access to
Other Common Carriers (OCCs). This feature provides access to OCC facilities over
a user specified physical facility; dedicated OCC trunks are not needed. Local OCC
access numbers and account codes are automatically added by System 25. System
25’s Virtual Facility feature is fully integrated with its ARS, Toll Restriction, and
SMDR/CAS features.
●
Callback Queuing provides a simple way to complete calls to busy trunk pools
without having to manually repeat the calling procedures. Such calls are put into a
queue; when the busy facility is available, the originator is alerted and the call is
completed.
●
Last Number Dialed automatically saves the last number dialed and allows the user
to retry the number without redialing (multiline voice terminals only).
●
Callback Queuing puts a call made to a busy facility into a queue, notifies the calling
user when the facility becomes available to receive the call, and completes the call.
●
Repertory Dialing allows multiline voice terminal users to store a telephone number
or account and associate that number with a button on their voice terminal. Pressing
a Repertory Dialing button is equivalent to dialing the stored number (one-touch
dialing).
●
System Speed Dialing allows all users to dial 90 selected numbers using 3-digit
codes. Users can also program up to 20 Personal Speed Dialing Numbers, which
are accessible only from their terminals. System Speed Dialing can be used by the
system administrator to hide business account codes from users.
OVERVIEW
●
Pooled Facility-Dial/Direct Access allows both multiline and single-line voice terminal
users to access a common pool of trunks for outgoing calls by dialing a facility
access code, or, on multiline voice terminals, by pressing a button. This grouping
provides resource pooling, which results in better service with a given number of
trunks.
●
Personal Lines provide dedicated outside lines for multiline voice terminal users.
Personal lines are accessed via a dedicated feature button. Up to 16 terminals may
share a personal line.
●
Third-Party Call Setup allows PCs to set up calls between a System 25 voice/data
terminal and any other facility. A PC application program could use this capability to
retrieve information from a data base.
Last Number Dialed, Repertory Dialing, and Speed Dialing are also applicable to dialing and
managing internal calls. Personal lines provide both incoming and outgoing service.
Internal Call Movement
Typically, about 40 percent of PBX calls are internal calls, call transfers to another location,
conference of multiple locations, temporarily suspended calls, page to locate the called party,
etc. Rapid placement of internal calls and easy call movement from the answering station to
a new station are supported with numerous features in System 25.
To provide easy internal call setup, System 25 provides the following features.
●
Direct Station Selection (DSS) allows one-button access from a multiline voice
terminal to another voice terminal, a pooled facility, paging zone, or DGC group. The
DSS status LED reflects the idle/busy status of the associated termination point.
This feature is used to track and contact frequently called associates.
●
Automatic Intercom allows multiline voice terminal users to call each other by use of
a dedicated line appearance. A private dedicated path ensures that a path is always
available. This feature is frequently used in Boss/Secretary arrangements.
●
The Dial Plan for System 25 is based on the concept that, whenever possible, calls
should be placed to individuals rather than to pieces of equipment. To implement
this concept, individuals are assigned PDCs and are allowed to sign in those PDCs at
other terminals. The system automatically routes the call to the home terminal or
signed-into terminal. This significantly increases the probability of reaching the called
party. In addition, the Dial Plan is built on a flexible numbering scheme that allows
the number of dialed digits to match assigned PDCs (2/3/4 digit dial plans) and to be
administered to match telephone company assigned Direct Inward Dialing numbers.
1-9
OVERVIEW
Efficient internal call termination is supported with the following features.
●
Distinctive Ringing provides various patterns of ringing to allow users to distinguish
outside calls, inside calls, callbacks on queued calls, and calls set up at an
associated data terminal.
●
Hands-Free Answer on Intercom (HFAI) allows Speakerphone and HFAI terminals to
auto-answer inside or attendant extended calls. With HFAI active, the set generates
a tone burst over its speaker to alert the calling and called party of the call
completion. Both parties may then converse; no action by the called party is
required.
Frequently, the first termination point for a call is not its final destination. To support internal
call movement, System 25 provides the following features.
●
Bridging of System Access and Personal Lines allows calls to be passed in a manner
that key system users are familiar with.
●
Transfer allows a user to transfer any call to another voice terminal. This feature
supports transfer of calls from the answering position to another location for
completion of a transaction. Examples are secretary to boss, office to lab, broker to
specialist, etc.
●
Conference allows up to five parties (maximum two outside), including the originator,
to participate in a call. This feature supports add-on of additional parties to a call for
joint consultation, crisis management, schedule coordination, etc.
●
Hold allows a user to suspend a call. The Hold feature allows users to temporarily
disconnect from one conversation and either place or answer another call. Music or
information bulletins may be provided to the held party. Called parties frequently use
the hold period to access computer data bases, search categories, and/or consult
with others via a second phone call.
●
Following and Forwarding provide users with ways to answer their incoming calls
while temporarily away from their home terminals.
●
Park allows a user to place a call or conference on hold and then pick up the call
from any voice terminal. The user can page another party to pick up the parked call
or may move to another location and then re-access the call.
Data Communications
Small Business customers have started to integrate PCs into their day-to-day business
operations. Businesses have found a need to access the data bases (sales, inventory,
personnel) in these PCs from more than one location (both on- and off-premises). System 25
data features are specially engineered to enhance a user’s ability to access data from
multiple locations. System 25 has been designed to help these businesses use their
personal computers, data terminals, and host computers more effectively by providing the
following features.
1-10
OVERVIEW
●
Circuit switched data communications up to 19,200 bps (RS-232 interface) provide
circuit switched connections from asynchronous data terminals, PCs, or host
computers to host computers or network facilities. Users can be located and/or
moved to any on-premises office equipped with the standard AT&T 4-pair wiring plan.
Thus an asynchronous terminal or PC can have access to multiple host computers,
remote data bases via a modem pool, and a local area network (STARLAN) via
System 25’s STARLAN NETWORK gateway.
●
Packet switched data connections at 1 million bps over AT&T’s STARLAN NETWORK
local area network provide data transfer between client PCs and servers (PCs/host
computers/printers, etc.) on the local area network (LAN). LAN users can be located
and/or moved to any on-premises office equipped with standard AT&T 4-pair wiring.
The LAN allows PCs to share facilities (printers, disk systems, modem pools, etc.).
●
System 25’s STARLAN NETWORK ACCESS software and STARLAN NETWORK
gateway provide access to the STARLAN NETWORK for off-premises and occasional
on-premises users. These users do not need to install a Network Access Unit (NAU)
in their PCs to use the STARLAN NETWORK ACCESS software. The data transfer
rate is limited to 9600 bps or, for off-premises users, by the modem.
Note:
System 25 is compatible only with Release 2 of the STARLAN
NETWORK.
LAN users can access hosts connected to System 25, or, if their System 25 is
equipped with a modem pool, remote hosts. Finally, terminals and PCs connected to
System 25 data ports can access host computers on the LAN.
Frequently a user needs to access a LAN data base at or from a remote location (home,
motel, client office, branch, etc.). To support out-of-building access to computer data over
network facilities or Off-Premise Station (OPS) lines, System 25 provides the following
features.
●
Modem pooling allows data terminals to communicate over analog facilities utilizing
the standard dialing plan and provides full access to all network facilities, cost control
mechanisms, ARS, and incoming call management tools (DID/attendant/DGC, etc.).
●
Transfer to data allows a data call to be set up on a voice terminal and then to be
transferred to a data terminal or computer. This feature can also be used to enter an
account code for the data call.
●
The System 25 STARLAN NETWORK gateway allows the LAN environment to be
extended to occasional users or remote locations. Off-premises users can access
the LAN utilizing all the network features, cost control mechanisms, and incoming call
management facilities of System 25. The data transfer rate is governed by the
modem.
Setting up data communications with PCs, host computers, and/or remote access can be a
source of confusion for occasional users. The following special data features are provided
by System 25 to assist the user in utilizing its rich set of data communications capabilities.
1-11
OVERVIEW
●
The integrated voice-data dialing plan recognizes the different types of data
endpoints (digital/analog and remote/local) in a connection and automatically inserts
the required data communication equipment. In addition, autobauding supports the
alignment of equipment with the capacity to transmit at different data rates.
●
Station Hunting supports the use of a single dial code to access a group of host
computer ports.
●
Terminal Dialing provides the user with fast access to data communications via
keyboard dialing at a terminal or PC.
●
Command Mode provides a menu of data services supporting terminal dialing and
display and control of user data port options. A user friendly Change Options menu
is provided for user administration of data options.
●
Expert Mode is an enhancement that provides an alternative method of accessing
Command Mode functions. It eliminates the display of menus and allows multiple
commands to be entered on a single line. Expert mode is suitable for use with
computer-driven scripts for call setup.
●
Communication Access Manager (CAM) is an MS-DOS* software application that
provides a phone manager for placing voice and data calls for the user and VT100†
terminal emulation. CAM may be used on either STARLAN NETWORK client
workstations or on PCs connected to System 25. CAM has a 200-entry directory
with one-touch dialing for both voice and data calls and auto-login capability for data
calls to host computers. CAM’s Remote Access feature provides password
protected unattended access to PC files and electronic mail. File transfer is
supported with the popular XMODEM protocol.
●
STARLAN NETWORK ACCESS is an MS-DOS software application that allows PCs
not connected to the STARLAN NETWORK to call through the System 25 STARLAN
NETWORK Interface and run STARLAN NETWORK client software to access file and
printer servers on the STARLAN NETWORK. ACCESS uses a PC’s serial
communications port to communicate with the STARLAN NETWORK Interface.
ACCESS is compatible with NETBIOS, permitting execution of most applications
written for the IBM‡ PC Network and IBM Token Ring Network.

OVERVIEW
Growth & Rearrangement
Historical data indicates that clients in the System 25 station range have a need for
communications systems capable of significant growth and rearrangement. Clients need
flexibility over the life of the system to easily add capacity, move stations, modify cost control
options, etc. The architecture of System 25 was implemented with the objective to meet this
need.
●
Advanced Administration (optional) is an easy-to-use, menu driven personal computer
software package for configuring the rich set of system options. Versions of this software
are available for both MS-DOS and UNIX personal computers.
●
Uniform Wiring Plan (four-pair) allows a building to be prewired for the rich set of AT&T
Small Business PBX service offerings. This modular wiring plan supports client
reconfiguration of an office with variations in station type (Analog, MET, MERLIN
System, futures) and data configurations (LAN, asynchronous,
Communications
synchronous). It supports simultaneous voice and data from standard 4-pair modular jacks.
●
System 25/75/85 and DEFINITY™ Communications System, Generic 1 and Generic 2
Standard Architecture supports efficient growth with modular cabinets, universal carrier
slots, nonblocking network, and uniform wiring plan. Every circuit slot in the system can be
used for trunk cards or voice/data station cards. All these attributes allow the client to add
future capability without breakage and re-engineering of existing equipment. Thus, the
client is able to minimize initial investment while not restricting future growth.
Over time, the type of tools and facilities that a business utilizes changes. It is important that
a PBX provide support for the full set of telephone company network options over its
installed life, even when only a subset is initially used. Trunks link two switching systems,
such as System 25 and the local Central Office or System 25 and another PBX. System 25
supports five different telephone company trunk interfaces to provide desired connectivity at
minimum expense. Thus the opportunity exists to select the best trunk types, depending on
tariffs and customer needs. For example:
●
Loop Start (LS) trunks for public network access at minimum tariff. These trunks
handle outgoing and incoming attendant calls, incoming DGC calls, outgoing pooled
facility calls, and personal line calls.
●
Ground Start (GS) trunks for public network access. These trunks handle the same
type of calls as LS trunks. They provide protection against call reorigination without
toll restriction, more reliable automatic route selection, virtual facilities, SMDR, and
CAS. Simultaneous incoming and outgoing call seizure of the same trunk under
heavy traffic conditions is essentially eliminated with ground start trunks. GS trunks
should usually be selected in preference to LS trunks unless tariff considerations are
overriding. Note, however, that Centrex Service requires LS trunks.
●
Direct Inward Dialing (DID) trunks for dialing a station directly from outside (attendant
assistance not required). Outside dial access to stations, trunks (optional), and
answering groups (Direct Group calling) is provided.
1-13
OVERVIEW
●
Tie Trunks for linking PBXs with dedicated private circuits for high volume calling.
Dial access to stations, other trunks, answering groups (Direct Group Calling), and an
Electronic Tandem Network endpoint capability are provided.
●
Off-Premises Stations (OPS) allow single-line voice terminals and key systems to be
located remotely and connected to System 25 via arrangements with the local
telephone company. This service is used to provide users at secondary sites (or
their residences) many of the same features as an on-premises single-line station.
To enhance the usage and control of the above set of network facilities, System 25 provides
the rich set of access features outlined in the Outgoing Business Communications section.
In addition, System 25 can support networking between systems by:
●
Serving as an endpoint on an electronic tandem network (ETN) using its tie trunks
and flexible dialing plan.
●
Serving as an off-network or on-network access point with its dial access/transfer
between tie trunks and telephone company trunks (LS/GS/DID). This allows usage of
tie trunks to reach a distant System 25 and then connect through that System 25 to
local telephone company facilities to complete the call.
To support efficient utilization of trunks, they can be grouped together (up to 16 groups) if all
trunks in the group perform the same function. This resource pooling provides better service
with a given number of trunks, and simplifies administration and calling.
Types of trunks that can be assigned in System 25 are as follows.
●
Central Office, which provide a link with the local telephone company for incoming
and outgoing calls (LS/GS)
●
Foreign Exchange (FX), which connect to a CO other than the local CO for high
volume calling to/from a distant location
●
Wide-Area Telecommunications Service (WATS), which connect to an Outward WATS
office or a dial “800” Service Office
●
Direct Inward Dialing (DID), which provide incoming service from a CO to directly
access a station or facility (STARLAN NETWORK interface, trunk group)
●
Tie, which provide a link with another private switching system.
To support efficient utilization of this rich set of network options, System 25 provides the
functions outlined in the Incoming and Outgoing Business Communications sections.
Conclusions
System 25 has been targeted at providing excellent small business communications
capability at the right price. The thousands of systems in service in the first 2 years of
production have confirmed that these capabilities are an excellent match with small business
customers’ communications needs.

FEATURES AND SERVICES
Account Code Entry, Forced
Description
This feature forces selected station users to enter account codes before dialing certain calls
out of System 25. Users at stations that have Forced Account Code Entry (FACE) are
required to enter account codes either for all outgoing calls or for just “dial 0 or 1” toll calls.
The code entries appear in the ACCOUNT field of the SMDR records.
To place a FACE-restricted call, the user must dial the Account Code Entry access code ✶ 0
followed by an account code before dialing the rest of the call. The account code entry is
terminated when the number of digits entered equals the number administered for system
account codes or when # is entered. The user hears second dial tone after the code is
entered and can then dial the necessary access codes and other numbers to reach the
destination.
If the user makes an error while entering the account code, the procedure can be corrected
by dialing ✶ 0 followed by the correct account code.
The user receives reorder tone when an account code is required on a call but not entered.
Considerations
FACE ensures that specified outgoing calls include information (project, client, department,
etc.) to be used for accounting and billing purposes.
The voice terminal user cannot use the Account Code Entry feature button for forced entry.
This button is used with the Optional Account Code Entry feature only.
An account code entry cannot be forced for the following types of calls:
●
Personal Line calls
●
Direct Facility Access calls
●
Remote Access
●
Calls to 911 and the three ARS-administered emergency numbers, when using ARS.
FACE requirements apply to calls using these facilities and features:
2-8
●
Repertory Dialing
●
Personal/System Speed Dialing
●
ARS (nonemergency) and pooled facility access codes
●
Trunk calls using Conference or Transfer
Account Code Entry, Forced
The system does not check the validity of account codes. It checks only for the proper
number of digits or the code terminator #.
Calls that do not require FACE can still be assigned an account code, as in previous releases
of System 25. Refer to the “Account Code Entry, Optional” feature description in this
manual for the procedures.
Interactions
The following features interact with Forced Account Code Entry.
Bridging of System Access Buttons: Calls made from Bridged Access (BA) buttons on a
bridging station follow the FACE restrictions of the bridging station, not of the associated
principal station.
Call Accountability: The account code entry may be made before or after the Call
Accountability entry. Dial tone is returned to the user after either entry.
Callback Queuing: An account code entered before queuing is saved for SMDR.
Conference: Calls can be conference in both directions between a FACE-restricted station
and a non-FACE station.
Display: When a user activates the Forced Account Code Entry feature by dialing ✶ 0, the
system displays the prompt ACCT?. As the user enters the account code, the digits are
displayed to the right of the prompt. If the number of digits exceeds 9, the system
automatically scrolls to Screen 2; the continuation character “-” and the remaining digits
appear on Screen 2.
The prompt and digits remain displayed until one of the following occurs:
— The user enters either “#” or the administered number of code digits.
— The user restarts the Account Code Entry feature by dialing ✶ 0 to correct an
erroneous entry.
— The system time-out for Account Code Entry is reached.
— The user selects another button that overwrites the display.
Forwarding: Stations with FACE administered for all calls cannot forward calls to any
outside numbers. Stations with FACE administered for “dial 0 or 1” calls can forward calls
to any outside number except for “dial 0 or 1” numbers.
Intercept Treatment with Reorder Tone: The user receives reorder tone when an account
code is required on a call but is not entered.
Last Number Dialed: The access code ✶ 0 and the account code are not stored by this
feature.
2-9
FEATURES AND SERVICES
Remote Access: Remote access callers cannot enter account codes.
Third-Party Call Setup: If the source station is FACE-restricted, the third-party data terminal
must prefix the outside destination number with ✶ 0 and an account code.
Transfer: Calls can be transferred in both directions between a FACE-restricted station and
a non-FACE station.
Administration Requirements
Account code entry is administered on a per-station basis—Optional, Forced for all Outgoing
Calls, or Forced for Dial 0 or 1 Toll Calls Only; default = Optional.
FACE cannot be administered for data ports.
2-10
Account Code Entry, Optional
Account Code Entry, Optional
Description
Optional Account Code Entry allows voice terminal users to associate an account code with
incoming and outgoing calls. The account code is appended to the SMDR call record and
can be used later for accounting or billing purposes.
For an incoming call, the user must enter the account code at the end of the call. For an
outgoing call, the user has a choice of entering the code at the beginning of the call, before
the destination is dialed, or at the end of the call. An account code entry is terminated when
the number of digits entered equals the number administered for system account codes,
when # is entered, or when the user hangs up. The procedures for associating an account
code with a call are as follows:
●
Single-line Voice Terminal User
Get dial tone (by going off-hook at the beginning of a call or by flashing the
switchhook before hanging up) and dial ✶ 0; then dial the account code directly or
dial a System or Personal Speed Dialing Number that contains the account code. If
the code is dialed incorrectly (before the last digit), redial ✶ 0 and the correct number.
●
Multiline Voice Terminal User
At the beginning of an outgoing call, get dial tone and dial ✶ 0; then dial the account
code directly or dial a System or Personal Speed Dialing Number that contains the
account code. If the code is dialed incorrectly (before the last digit), redial ✶ 0 and
the correct number. At the end of a call, press ACCT ENTRY and enter the code
before hanging up. A Repertory Dialing (REP DIAL) button can also be used to enter
an account code. If the code is dialed incorrectly (before the last digit), press ACCT
ENTRY again and dial the correct number.
When the correct number of account code digits has been entered (or # is entered to signal
end-of-dialing), confirmation tone is returned to the user, and the account code is appended
to the SMDR call record.
Considerations
Optional Account Code Entry provides an easy method of allocating the costs of specific
calls (and associated staff time) to the correct project, department or user. The account
code is appended to the SMDR call record and sent to the SMDR output channel.
Account Codes can contain up to 15 digits.
The system does not check the validity of account codes. It only checks for the proper
number of digits or the code terminator #.
If the user is active on a call, invoking the feature will drop the call.
2-11
FEATURES AND SERVICES
Erroneous account codes that are not corrected before the last digit is entered are recorded
and cannot be changed. Partial account codes entered by going on-hook before completing
the entry are recorded and cannot be changed.
If, before all digits have been entered, (1) the user goes on-hook, (2) a button other than
ACCT ENTRY is pressed, or (3) 30 seconds have elapsed since the feature was invoked, the
SMDR call record will show the digits dialed up to that point.
Optional Account Code Entry cannot be invoked for a call on hold.
Interactions
The following features interact with Optional Account Code Entry
Bridging of System Access Buttons: Account codes can be entered for incoming or
outgoing calls on Bridged Access buttons using normal feature operations.
Callback Queuing: An account code entered before queuing is saved for SMDR.
Conference: If more than one user attempts to enter an account code on a Conference Call,
the first to enter a code will prevail.
Display: When a user activates the Account Code Entry feature by dialing ✶ 0 or pressing
ACCT ENTRY, the system displays the prompt ACCT?. As the user enters the account code,
the digits are displayed to the right of the prompt. If the number of digits exceeds 9, the
system automatically scrolls to Screen 2; the continuation character “-” and the remaining
digits appear on Screen 2.
The prompt and digits remain displayed until one of the following occurs:
●
●
The user enters either “#” or the administered number of code digits.
The user restarts the Account Code Entry feature by dialing ✶ 0 or pressing ACCT
ENTRY again, to correct an erroneous entry.
●
The system time-out for Account Code Entry is reached.
●
The user selects another button that overwrites the display.
Remote Access: Remote access callers cannot enter account codes.
Repertory Dialing: An account code can be stored on a REP DIAL button.
Speed Dialing: An account code can be stored in a System or Personal Speed Dialing code.
Transfer: A user can transfer a call to another user, then, before hanging up, enter an
account code. Subsequent account code entries for the same call will be ignored, even
though confirmation tone has been returned.
2-12
Account Code Entry, Optional
Administration Requirements
System:
●
Assign number of Account Code digits (0-15; default = 15).
Voice Terminal Port:
●
Multiline terminals—Assign Account Code Entry button.
●

FEATURES AND SERVICES
Attendant Call Extending
Description
This feature allows the attendant to put a call in a special hold condition, call another station,
then connect the two calls together. The attendant can withdraw from the connection and
separate the call from the console or remain connected to the other parties. Attendant Call
Extending is a feature used at either a Direct Trunk Attendant Console (DTAC) or a Switched
Loop Attendant Console (SLAC).
Note:
In general, the attendant should not use the TRANSFER button, which
invokes the standard multiline voice terminal Transfer feature, to extend calls.
If Transfer is used, busy or unanswered calls cannot return to the attendant
console for further handling.
The attendant, after placing or answering a call, can use Procedure 1 or 2 to extend this call
to an inside extension or Procedure 1 to extend it to an outside number:
1. Press START to place the incoming call on hold via the Attendant Splitting One-Way
Automatic feature. After receiving Dial Tone, the attendant then dials the requested
inside or outside number.
or
2. Press the Selector Console Group Select and Direct Extension Selection (DXS)
buttons associated with the requested inside station. This operation is equivalent to
pressing START and dialing the extension.
If ringing tone is heard, the attendant presses RELEASE (Manual Release) to connect the
caller to the ringing line and separate the call from the console. As an alternative, a DTAC
attendant or a SLAC attendant (with Automatic Release administered) can go straight to
another call by pressing any facility button, such as System Access, Loop, Automatic
Intercom, or an outside line; this completes the call extending procedure. (If a SLAC
attendant has Automatic Hold administered instead of Automatic Release, pressing a facility
button simply puts the incoming call on hold and does not extend it.)
The attendant has the option of staying connected to the ringing line to announce the call
before connecting the two parties. The attendant can then release or (SLAC only) join the
other parties in a 3-way connection by using the Attendant Join feature.
If busy tone is heard and Attendant Camp-On (see associated feature description) is not
desired, the attendant presses CANCEL and is reconnected to the calling party.
If busy tone is heard on a call to an inside station and Attendant Camp-On is desired, the
attendant presses RELEASE. The called party hears a tone burst, and the call waits at the
called voice terminal. When a busy single-line station goes on-hook, or a busy multiline
station System Access button becomes idle, the call automatically begins ringing at the
station.
2-14
Attendant Call Extending
Calls extended to an idle voice terminal that are not answered within a specified time return
to the Attendant Console on an idle LOOP button (SLAC only) or on the Return-On-Don’tAnswer (RTN-DA) button (DTAC only). Calls camped-on at a busy voice terminal that are not
answered within a specified time return to the Attendant Console on an idle LOOP button
(SLAC only) or on the Return-On-Busy (RTN-BUSY) button (DTAC only). If a SLAC is not
available to incoming calls (busy on another call, in Position Busy mode, etc.), a returning call
remains in the console queue until the console can handle it. If the Return buttons on a
DTAC are busy, an extended call remains at the called terminal until that button becomes
idle.
Considerations
Attendant Call Extending allows the attendant to utilize the additional attendant related
features such as Attendant Splitting One-Way, Release, Cancel, Return-On-Don’t-Answer,
Return-On-Busy, Forced Release (SLAC), Join (SLAC), and Source/Destination (SLAC).
For information on related Attendant Features (Table 2-E), refer to the individual feature
descriptions.
Interactions
The following feature interacts with Attendant Call Extending.
Forwarding: Calls extended by an attendant to a forwarding station will be given normal
Forwarding treatment.
Administration Requirements
System:
●
Number of seconds before a Camped-On call returns to the Attendant Console (1120 or 0 for no Attendant Camp-On; default = 30).
●
Number of rings before unanswered call returns to the Attendant Console (1-31;
default = 5).
2-15
FEATURES AND SERVICES
Attendant Camp-On
Description
This feature allows the attendant to extend a trunk call to a busy voice terminal and leave it
waiting or “camped on” there. After hearing busy tone, the attendant presses RELEASE to
camp-on this call at the busy terminal. When this is done, a burst of tone is heard in the
handset of the called terminal and the caller is placed on hold (hearing music-on-hold if
available). When a System Access button at a multiline set becomes idle or a single-line
terminal hangs up, the camped-on call is connected automatically and ringing begins.
Considerations
A camped-on call can be answered by a busy single-line user without losing the current call
by momentarily pressing the switchhook (which places the current call on hold) and then
dialing ✶ 9. Multiline terminal users cannot do this. However, if they have a System AccessOriginate Only button, they can place all other calls on hold, go off-hook on that button and
dial ✶ 9 to pick up the camped-on call.
If the camped-on call is not answered within a specified time, the call will be returned to the
Attendant Console in one of the following ways:
●
Switched Loop Attendant Console
The call returns to the common queue, where it remains until the console can receive
it at a LOOP button.
●
Direct Trunk Attendant Console
The call returns to the Return-On-Busy (RTN-BUSY) button. If that button is busy,
the call remains camped-on at the called terminal until the RTN-BUSY button of the
console becomes idle.
For information on related Attendant Features (Table 2-E), refer to the individual feature
descriptions.
Interactions
The following features interact with Attendant Camp-On.
Call Waiting: Trunk calls camped onto a station by an attendant are given priority over other
waiting calls.
Callback Queuing: Trunk calls camped onto a station by an attendant are given priority over
queued calls.
Coverage: If the called party is a sender in a Coverage group and all receivers of the
Coverage group are busy, the call will camp onto the originally-dialed station. Once
camped-on, calls will no longer receive coverage even if a coverage receiver becomes idle.
2-16
Attendant Camp-On
Direct Group Calling: The attendant can camp-on more than one call per DGC group. Voice
terminals in the group do not receive a burst of tone when a call is camped on. Trunk calls
camped onto a busy DGC group go into the DGC queue and are eligible for delay
announcement and music-on-hold.
Direct Inward Dialing (DID): DID calls can be covered by the attendant and then given
Camp-On treatment. They do not automatically receive Call Waiting.
Station Hunting: If the called party is a member of a hunt group and all members of the
group are busy, the call camps onto the originally-dialed station. Once camped-on, calls will
no longer hunt even if another member of the hunt group becomes idle.
Administration Requirements
System:
●
Number of seconds before a camped-on call returns to the Attendant Console (1-120
or 0 for no Attendant Camp-On; default = 30).
2-17
FEATURES AND SERVICES
Attendant Cancel
Description
This feature allows the attendant to terminate an attempt to extend any incoming call if the
called station does not answer, or if the station answers but declines to accept the call. The
attendant presses CANCEL and is automatically reconnected to the calling party. The call
can then be ended by hanging up or by pressing RELEASE.
Pressing CANCEL when the Start facility is not active will be ignored.
Considerations
Attendant Cancel allows the attendant to terminate a call transfer attempt and return to the
incoming held party via a one-button operation. This enhances the attendant’s ability to
handle calls quickly and efficiently.
2-18
Attendant Console, Direct Trunk
Attendant Console, Direct Trunk
Description
In System 25, the Attendant Console is used to answer incoming trunk calls that are not directed to
specific user stations, to answer calls from inside users, to extend calls to inside stations and
outside numbers, and to assist system users in placing outgoing calls and setting up conferences.
The attendant can also manage and monitor some areas of system operation. System 25 supports
either the Direct Trunk Attendant Console (DTAC) or the Switched Loop Attendant Console (SLAC),
which is covered in the next feature description in this manual. Consoles of both types cannot be
installed in the same system.
The DTAC (Figure 2-1) can be one of the Merlin Communications System multiline voice terminals
listed below, administered with special features, buttons, and capabilities to serve as an attendant
position.
●
7305H02D (34 programmable feature buttons, each with I-use and status LEDs)
●
7305H03B (34 programmable feature buttons; built-in speakerphone)
●
7316H01A (34 programmable feature buttons, each with I-use and status LEDs; built-in
speakerphone)
In addition to the attendant features, most standard multiline terminal features are also available.
(Refer to Section 4, “Hardware Description,” for a complete identification of the external controls,
indicators, and components of the DTAC voice terminal.)

2-19
Attendant Console, Direct Trunk
●
Start [START]: Initiates the call-extending process by placing a caller on hold and
providing internal dial tone to the attendant.
●
Cancel [CANCEL]: Terminates the “START” operation and reconnects the attendant to the
calling party.
●
Release [RELEASE]: Releases the attendant from an active call and completes the callextending process.
●
Return-On-Busy [RTN-BUSY]: Camped-on calls are returned to the console on this button
if not answered within a specified interval.
●
Return-On-Don’t-Answer [RTN-DA]: Extended calls not answered are returned to the
console on this button if not answered within a specified interval.
●
Attendant Message Waiting [ATT MSG]: Used by the attendant to remotely control
Message LEDs on voice terminals.
●
Alarm [ALARM]: The associated status LED flashes when a system trouble has been
detected; the LED can be changed from flashing to steadily lit by pressing the button. The
associated red status LED will be lighted when a bad barrier code or barrier code timeout is
detected. The red LED can be extinguished by pressing the associated button.
Two other attendant-only features are assigned to console feature buttons if required: Position Busy
[POS BUSY] and Night Service [NIGHT]. In a dual-attendant-console system, Position Busy
removes an attendant console from service. Only one of two consoles can be in the “Position Busy”
mode at a time. When Night Service is activated, attendant-seeking calls can ring a night bell, can
be directed to assigned voice terminals, or can be sent to a night service announcement.
Dual Console Operation
A System 25 can be equipped with up to two DTACs that operate simultaneously when both are in
service. If the system has two attendant consoles, one is called the first attendant console; the other
is called the second attendant console. The calls in the following list will be routed to the first
attendant console:
●
Dial “0” calls
●
DID calls to unassigned numbers (when administered to route to the attendant)
●
Calls to Floating Personal Dial Codes (FPDCs) not signed in anywhere (if administered to
route to the attendant)
If the first attendant has activated the Position Busy feature or is busy on all System Access
buttons, these calls will be routed to the second console. If that console is also busy on all System
Access buttons, busy tone is provided to the calling party.
System users and DID callers can reach a particular attendant by dialing the Personal Dial Code
(PDC) assigned to the desired attendant.
2-20
November 1995
Attendant Console, Direct Trunk
Position Busy
A POS BUSY button can be assigned to each console; this permits selection of one of two
modes of operation: (1) simultaneous operation or (2) only one Attendant Console active.
(Note that only one console is allowed to be inactive at any given time.) An associated POS
BUSY status LED is lighted when the console is inactive. Ringing is disabled on all trunk
terminations on the rightmost two columns of buttons of the inactive console. Ringing
disabled on an inactive console will be enabled on the active console for those trunks with
dual appearances (appearances on both consoles). All other features on all buttons,
including those on the associated Attendant Direct Extension Selector Console will continue
to function normally even though the console is inactive.
Considerations
Direct trunk operation means that trunks are terminated on individual buttons, called
Personal Line buttons, where outside calls are answered and originated. The console can
have several incoming calls ringing simultaneously.
Each console can also have an optional Attendant Direct Extension Selector Console to
enhance internal calling. The Selector Console is covered in the “Attendant Direct Extension
Selection” feature description.
For information on related Attendant Features (Table 2-E), refer to the individual feature
descriptions.
Interactions
The following features interact with Direct Trunk Attendant Console.
Attendant Console, Switched Loop: A DTAC cannot operate in the same system with a
Switched Loop Attendant Console.
Bridging of System Access Buttons: A DTAC cannot serve as a principal station.
Callback Queuing: The attendant can queue calls that are extended using the normal
START-RELEASE button operation. However, calls originated using only the START button
(no other call put on hold) cannot be queued.
Call Waiting: Calls cannot wait at a DTAC.
Display: The DTAC does not support Display.

FEATURES AND SERVICES
Attendant Console, Switched Loop
Description
In System 25, the Attendant Console is used to answer incoming trunk calls that are
specified to ring at an attendant position, to answer calls from inside users, to extend calls to
inside stations and outside numbers, to assist system users in placing outgoing calls, and to
set up conferences. The attendant can also manage and monitor some areas of system
operation. System 25 supports the Switched Loop Attendant Console (SLAC) or the Direct
Trunk Attendant Console (DTAC), which is covered in the preceding feature description of
this manual. Consoles of both types cannot be installed in the same system.
The SLAC (Figure 2-3) can be one of the Merlin System multiline voice terminals listed below,
administered with special buttons, features, and capabilities to serve as an attendant
console. In addition to the attendant features, most standard multiline terminal features are
also available. (Refer to Section 4, “Hardware Description,” for a complete identification of
all the external controls, indicators, and components of the SLAC voice terminals.)

Associated with the SLAC are message center-like capability and display support. The
message center feature provides for efficient handling of calls that should be sent to
message takers. These calls are directed to a message center console position through
administration of call type translations. Display service allows identifiers (names) to be
assigned to extension numbers and trunks. The system then displays the appropriate
information to the attendant when calls are processed at the console.
2-24
Attendant Console, Switched Loop
The Switched Loop Console derives its name from the ability of the system to hold incoming
attendant-bound calls in a queue and switch them on voice loops to an available console. Calls are
directed to a console in a pre-administered, prioritized sequence. The SLAC differs from the DTAC
in the following basic respects:
●
It receives calls one at a time, regardless of the number of incoming calls to the system (at
the DTAC, many incoming calls can be ringing simultaneously).
●
It displays pertinent information about incoming and outgoing calls.
●
It can serve as an attendant console, a message center, or a combination of both.
●
It has speakerphone and Hands-Free Answer on Intercom (HFAI) capabilities.
Fixed Buttons (Figure 2-4)
The SLAC has five fixed line appearance, or “LOOP,” buttons where all incoming calls are
answered. Each button has a red I-use LED and a green status LED. These buttons represent voice
links (loops) between the console and the switch. The loops also provide the paths for outgoing
calls.
In addition to the LOOP buttons and standard multiline terminal buttons (HOLD, TRANSFER, etc.),
the console is equipped with the following feature buttons that provide unique attendant functions.
On the deluxe SLAC, all of these buttons have both I-use and status LEDs; on the basic SLAC, only
the buttons specifically noted have LEDs.
●
Start [START]: Initiates the call extending process by placing a caller on hold (on the
Source button) and providing internal dial tone to the attendant.
●
Cancel [CANCEL]: Terminates the “Start” operation and reconnects the attendant to the
calling party (on the Source button).
●
Release [RELEASE]: Releases the attendant from an active call and completes the call
extending process.
●
Source [SOURCE]: Reconnects the attendant to the calling party after a call has been
initiated to the called party but before the two parties have been connected together. (I-use
and status LEDs on basic SLAC.)
●
Destination [DEST]: Connects the attendant to the called party again after the attendant
has operated the Source button to speak to the calling party. (I-use and status LEDs on
basic SLAC.)
●
Join [JOIN]: Joins together (in a 3-way connection) the attendant and the other parties in
an extended call.
●
Forced Release [FORCED RELEASE]: Drops all active parties from a call.
●
Last Number Dialed [LAST # DIALED]: Redials the last number dialed.

Attendant Console, Switched Loop
Display (Figure 2-4)
The SLAC contains an alphanumeric call information display. This module is built into the
top of the console. It contains a 16-character 5x7 dot matrix liquid crystal display, timer
controls, and a thumbwheel Contrast adjustment. Timer functions are available only when
the attendant presses the Local button. The Time/Timer Exit button allows the user to select
ordinary clock/calendar display or a timer. In the Time mode, Set, Fwd, and Rev are used to
set the clock. In Timer mode, Start and Stop are used to time events.
The primary purpose of the console display is to
information about incoming and outgoing calls. This
and associated names, trunk identifiers, reasons for
of calls waiting in the queue for service. Refer to
detailed discussion of call information displays.
provide the attendant with descriptive
information includes extension numbers
call return and redirection, and number
the “Display” feature description for a
The console display also provides access to the system’s integrated directory and allows the
attendant to search for the extension numbers assigned to users. Refer to the “Directory”
description for information on this feature.
Switched Loop Operation
All calls that are intended for an attendant position are first routed by the system to a
common queue where they wait to be sent to a console. In a configuration having two
consoles, the same queue serves both consoles. When an attendant console becomes
available to receive a call, the system removes a call from the queue and directs it to an idle
loop on the console. Calls are selected from the queue on the basis of “first in/first out” and
in accordance with administered priorities. An available attendant console is one that is not
active on a call, has no calls ringing, has at least one LOOP button idle, is not in Position
Busy or Inspect mode, and is not in a split condition.
In a two-console arrangement, each console can be administered to receive all types of calls
or to receive only specific types. A call that can be received by either position goes to the
first available attendant; when both are available, the call goes to the attendant who has
been idle the longest time. If one console is in “Position Busy” mode, all calls (except
Attendant PDC, Attendant PDC via DID, and DGC calls) direct to the other console.
An incoming call from the queue to a console appears on one of the five LOOP buttons; the
attendant is alerted to to the call by audible ringing, a steadily lighted red lamp, and a flashing
green lamp. While the call is ringing and while the attendant is handling the call, the system
will direct no more calls to the console. After the attendant ends or releases the call or puts
it on hold, another call can come in on an idle button.
It should be emphasized that even when all LOOP buttons on a console are idle, only one
call can be directed from the queue to the console. If the attendant puts a call on hold, that
LOOP button is no longer available, but a new call can come in on another button that is idle.
Answering a Call on a LOOP Button
At an available SLAC, an incoming call will ring at an idle LOOP button automatically selected
by the system. The attendant has only to lift the handset to answer the call; pressing the
button is not necessary.
2-27
FEATURES AND SERVICES
Placing a Call on a LOOP Button
In general, originating a call at an idle SLAC involves going off-hook and then dialing the
desired number. If the console is not idle, the attendant can generally use one of these
procedures:
●
Split the active call (that is, put it on temporary hold by pressing the Start button) and
place another call on the same button; this is the normal call-extending procedure.
●
If the Automatic Hold feature is enabled, press another LOOP button to place a new
call; the first call goes on hold.
●
If the console does not have Automatic Hold (that is, it has the default Automatic
Release), use the Hold button to put the active call on hold; then select a new loop to
place a new call.
Dual Console Operation
A System 25 can be equipped with up to two SLACs, which operate simultaneously when
both are in service. Both consoles can receive the same types of calls, or each can be
administered to receive only certain types. When one console is out of service (see Position
Busy below), most calls are directed to the other. Either or both consoles can function as a
message center.
Inside users can reach either attendant by dialing 0, or a particular one by dialing the
attendant’s PDC. DID callers can use the Attendant’s private DID number or the common
queue.
Position Busy
Operation of the Position Busy button by the attendant makes the console unavailable to
most incoming calls from the common queue and directs the calls to another answering
station. The only types of calls that are not diverted by Position Busy are Attendant DID,
DGC, and PDC calls. The placing of outgoing calls is not affected. When the Position Busy
condition is active, the green status lamp of the button lights steadily. Position Busy is
similar to the Send All Calls feature, which is not administrable on the SLAC.
The Position Busy feature is automatically assigned to a button position (see Figure 2-4)
when the console is administered. In a one-console configuration, however, the feature is
enabled only if a multiline voice terminal in the system is administered as a receiver of calls
from the common queue while the console is unavailable. If this is not done, the button
should be reassigned to another of the permissible features.
In a two-console configuration, an attendant in Position Busy mode will be covered by the
other attendant. Only one console can be in Position Busy mode at a time.
2-28
Attendant Console, Switched Loop
Call Types
The following types of attendant-seeking calls are sent to the common queue and then
directed to an idle LOOP button at a console:
●
Incoming trunk calls that are administered to ring in the queue.
●
Dial Operator calls (placed from inside stations by dialing 0)
●
Following calls signed in at the console
●
Calls to Floating PDCs (FPDCs) that are not signed in at a specific station
●
Direct Inward Dialing (DID) calls to numbers that are not assigned to specific stations
●
Attendant DID calls
●
Calls to the attendant’s PDC
●
Coverage calls for which the common queue is a covering receiver
●
Returning calls.
An incoming trunk connected directly to a DGC group can also be assigned to the Attendant
Queue. Calls ringing simultaneously at the DGC group and at the console will be connected
to the facility that answers first.
The order in which calls (of the 32 call coverage groups) are serviced is established by
system administration. Each type of call is assigned a priority that determines its position in
the common queue with respect to other types. System administration also establishes
where the calls go. Obviously, in a one-attendant system, all calls automatically go to that
attendant. If a system has two attendants, however, administration can direct calls of each
type (with the exceptions noted below) to either position or to both positions. Returning calls
can be directed to either console or to the specific console that originated them,
Following and Attendant PDC calls can be assigned priorities but cannot be directed to a
specific attendant in a two-position system. Any trunk except types 901-902 and 1003-1008
(DID and Dial-in Tie Trunks) can be assigned a priority and be directed to a specific attendant
position or to both.
Calls accessed by dialing a code [Pickup at other extensions, Trunk-Answer-from-AnyStation (TAAS) Night Service calls, and calls parked by other stations] are originated at a
LOOP button and brought to the console on that same button. These calls do not enter the
common queue.
2-29
FEATURES AND SERVICES
Figure 2-4.
Buttons and Display of BIS-34D
Ringing
The SLAC receives normal ringing on incoming calls. Abbreviated alerting (one short burst
of ringing), accompanied by a change in the LOOP button wink rate, indicates to the
attendant that a held call has exceeded the preset hold time interval. Calls on hold can be
administered to continue on hold after the second timeout or to return to console queue.
Abbreviated alerting can also be administered as a reminder for new calls entering the
queue.
2-30
Attendant Console, Switched Loop
Considerations
One System 25 configuration can support either one or two SLACs or one or two DTACs,
but not a combination of a SLAC and a DTAC.
The optional Direct Extension Selector Console can be connected to a SLAC to provide
busy/idle status of inside stations and quick calling of their extension numbers. In a system
with two consoles, either or both can have a Selector Console as an adjunct. The Selector
Console is covered in the “Attendant Direct Extension Selector Console” feature description.
For information on related Attendant Features (Table 2-E), refer to the individual feature
descriptions.
Interactions
The following features interact with Switched Loop Attendant Console.
Attendant Console, Direct Trunk: The SLAC cannot operate in the same system with a
Direct Trunk Attendant Console.
Bridging of System Access Buttons: The SLAC cannot serve as a principal or a bridging
station.
Callback Queuing: The attendant can queue calls that are extended using the normal
START-RELEASE button operation. However, calls originated using only the START button
(no other call put on hold) cannot be queued.
Call Originations: Placing a new call from an active console causes interactions with the
currently active call. At a console that has the default Automatic Release feature, the active
call is dropped when the attendant presses a new LOOP button. The new loop becomes the
active one; dial tone is provided, and the attendant can dial a number. If the optional
Automatic Hold feature is administered, the interrupted call is put on hold instead of being
lost.
If a new call is originated with the START button or at the Selector Console, the active call is
split. The current loop becomes the active loop for the new call. The display shows the split
call information. This is the normal operating procedure for extending calls.
When a REP DIAL button is pressed while the console is active on a call, the active party is
not dropped or split, and the display does not change. If the active call is with an inside
station, the digits generated by the REP DIAL button are ignored. But if the active call is on
an outside trunk, then pressing REP DIAL will cause the digits stored on the button to be
sent out over the trunk (“thru-dialing” or “end-to-end signaling”).
When an active call is put on hold manually by operation of the HOLD button, the system
does not automatically select a new loop for placing a call. In this case, the attendant can
select a new loop by pressing an idle LOOP button, then dial a number. Pressing a DSS, Flex
DSS, Auto Intercom, Last Number Dialed, REP DIAL, or Selector Console button will select a
new loop and dial a number in a single operation.
2-31
FEATURES AND SERVICES
Call Waiting: Calls cannot wait at the SLAC
Callback Queuing: Calls that are originated without use of the START button can be queued
for busy facilities. They are treated like calls from standard multiline stations. A queued call
remains on the LOOP button where it was originated and does not return via the common
queue.
Headset Adapter: Connection of a headset adapter to the SLAC allows the optional use of a
headset instead of the handset in handling calls.

FEATURES AND SERVICES
Attendant Direct Extension Selection
Description
This feature permits the attendant to extend calls to stations by pressing one or two buttons
instead of pressing START and dialing the extension number. Each attendant console in a
system can have an associated Direct Extension Selector Console. A Selector Console can
be used with either a Direct Trunk Attendant Console (DTAC) or with a Switched Loop
Attendant Console (SLAC).
The Selector Console is also used by the attendant for simply calling inside stations, in
addition to “extending” calls.
The Selector Console (Figure 2-6) has an array of 100 Direct Extension Selection (DXS)
buttons plus seven Group Select buttons and a Test button. The DXS buttons are labeled 00
through 99. Default assignments for the Group Select buttons are 200-299, 300-399, etc., up
to 800-899, but they can be assigned any hundreds group in the dialing plan. To select an
actual extension number, the user presses a Group Select button for the hundreds group
and a DXS button for the last two digits.
Pressing a DXS button when off-hook on an incoming call is equivalent to pressing START
and dialing a station. Such action will busy out the Start facility until the call is released. The
Selector Console can be used to monitor the on-hook/off-hook status of stations in the
system. If the attendant, while on-hook, presses a Group Select button, the Group Select
LED and the LEDs of any busy stations in that group will light steadily.
The DXS button LED and the Group Select button LED associated with a particular station
will flash when one of the following events occurs:
●
The station calls the attendant
●
A call extended by the attendant to the station returns on a RTN-BUSY or RTN-DA
button (DTAC only) or on a LOOP button (SLAC only)
●
The station is covered and a call to it is redirected to a COVER button (DTAC only) or
to a LOOP button (SLAC only).
The LEDs stop flashing when the call is answered. When the attendant answers a returning
call, the LEDs will return to the state that reflects the current on-hook/off-hook status of the
station. In all of the above cases, the Group Select lamp associated with the current
“hundreds page” remains lighted steadily.
An outside call can be parked via the Selector Console by pressing one of the eight DXS
buttons that can be designated as Park extension numbers. On the DTAC, the status LED of
the parked call winks (to indicate that the call is on hold) and the status LED on the Selector
Console lights steadily. On the SLAC, the call is removed from the attendant console, with
the Selector Console LED lit steadily.
A call parked via the Selector Console and not picked up within an administered period (0240 seconds; default = 120) will return to the console. The status LED of the parked-on
button will flash while the call is ringing the attendant.

FEATURES AND SERVICES
A call parked via the Selector Console can be picked up at any voice terminal by dialing the
Park retrieval code ( ✶ 8 ) and the number on which the call is parked.
The rightmost button on the bottom row is a Test button. When it is pressed, all DXS LEDs
will light sequentially; a second press allows individual LEDs to be tested and a third press
ends the test.
Considerations
When there are two Attendant Selector Consoles in the system the Group Select button
assignments are identical. Whenever an administrative change is made to one console, the
other console is automatically changed.
Buttons on the Selector Console point to either station PDCs, FPDCs (FPDCs), Park codes,
DGC access codes, or pooled facilities. Calls extended by the Selector Console are directed
as described in the “Personal Dial Codes” feature description.
When a station calls the attendant, the associated LED on the Selector Console will flash
while the call is ringing and will light steadily when the attendant answers the call. The LED
will light steadily whenever the terminal is off-hook. Station busy indication is not provided
for buttons pointing to FPDCs.
If a call to a PDC is directed to a COVER or LOOP button on the Attendant Console, the
covered status LED of the voice terminal on the Selector Console will flash and then go dark
when the call is answered by the attendant. If the covered call was intended for a FPDC that
was signed in at a terminal with attendant coverage, the Selector Console status LED
associated with the FPDC (if assigned) will flash. In this case, the Cover button status LED
will also flash (DTAC only).
A call can arrive at an Attendant Console SYSTEM ACCESS or LOOP button because the
PDC or FPDC is signed in at the Console or because the FPDC is not signed in anywhere.
For these calls, the status LED on the Selector Console will not light.
If the attendant extends a call to a station or DGC group and that call returns to the
attendant, the status LED of the called station or group on the Selector Console will flash
and then go dark when the call is answered by the attendant. This is true regardless of the
sign-in status of the PDC.
Interactions
The following features interact with Attendant Direct Extension Selection.
Attendant Position Busy: The Selector Console functions normally when the associated
Attendant Console is in the inactive mode.
Attendant Return-Coverage-On-Busy/On-Don’t-Answer: If a call to a FPDC is returned to the
attendant on a RTN-BUSY or RTN-DA button or on a LOOP button, the status LED of the
FPDC on the Selector Console will flash during ringing and go dark when answered.
2-36
Attendant Direct Extension Selection
Callback Queuing: Callbacks to the attendant do not flash at the associated Selector
Console.
Coverage: If the attendant receives a coverage call for a FPDC, the associated status LED
on the Selector Console will flash and then go dark when the call is answered by the
attendant.
Direct Group Calling: When all stations in a DGC group are busy, the DXS status LED on
the Selector Console lights.
Pooled Facilities: If a 1- or 2-digit FAC is used, the associated status LED on the Selector
Console will light steadily whenever all trunks in this group are busy. This does not occur
with 3- or 4-digit FACs.
Administration Requirements
Special Feature Ports:
●
Assign a port on a ZTN79 ATL Station Circuit Pack for each Selector Console.
●
Assign Group Select button hundreds groups.
System:
●
Assign Selector Console Park codes.
●
Park return time (0-240 seconds; default = 120).
Hardware Requirements
Requires an Attendant Selector Console, and a port interface on a ZTN79 ATL Station CP.
The Selector Console requires a KS-22911, List 1 Power Supply, associated 115V ac power
outlet, and a 400B-type Adapter. The 400B2 Adapter provides power to the console at the
wall jack. The Console connects to a port on the ZTN79 ATL Station CP.
Detailed connection information is provided in Figure 2-7. Descriptions of the Station
Interconnect Panel (SIP), Trunk Access Equipment (TAE), and associated cables and
adapters, as shown on the figures, are provided under “Connectivity” in Section 4.

Attendant Direct Extension Selector Console Connections
Attendant Forced Release (SLAC Only)
Attendant Forced Release (SLAC Only)
Description
This feature drops all active parties from a call in which the attendant and one or more other
parties are connected together. The attendant uses the feature by pressing the FORCED
RELEASE button while connected to other callers in a conference-type call. The other parties
will be disconnected from the console and from each other. After Forced Release has taken
place, the attendant can receive a new call from the console queue or place a call.
Considerations
Forced Release differs from Release in an important respect. Simple Release separates the
attendant from an extended call or a conference call, but leaves the other parties connected
together; Forced Release completely disconnects all parties.
When the attendant is connected to only one other party, Forced Release has the same
result as Release (that is, the call is ended). If the attendant has already Released, Forced
Release has no additional effect.
For information on related Attendant Features (Table 2-E), refer to the individual feature
descriptions.
2-39
FEATURES AND SERVICES
Attendant Join (SLAC Only)
Description
This feature allows the attendant, while extending an incoming call, to connect together the
calling party, the called party, and the console in a 3-way call. All parties can talk to each
other. The attendant activates the feature by pressing the JOIN button while still connected
to one of the other parties.
Considerations
The Join feature cancels a split condition.
The attendant can use the Join feature to stay on an extended call and give assistance to the
other parties. A joined call can be expanded into a conference call by adding more parties.
Once the JOIN button has been pressed, there is no way to “unjoin” the calling and called
parties (that is, separate them back into SOURCE and DEST).
For information on related Attendant Features (Table 2-E), refer to the individual feature
descriptions.
2-40
Attendant Message Waiting
Attendant Message Waiting
Description
This feature allows the attendant to remotely control the status of Message LEDs on user
stations. The attendant can activate the Message LED of the station while either (1) ringing,
(2) receiving Busy Tone, or (3) talking to a station. The status of the Message LED of the
called party is reflected by the green status LED of the Attendant Message Waiting button in
any of these cases.
To activate (light) a user’s Message LED in any of these cases, the attendant presses the
Attendant Message Waiting button. (If the signaled voice terminal is not equipped with a
Message LED, the attendant’s LED will remain dark.)
Note:
The Attendant Message Waiting button on the Direct Trunk Attendant
Console (DTAC) is labeled ATT MSG. On the Switched Loop Attendant
Console (SLAC), the name is completely spelled out.
If the attendant presses the button a second (or third) time before hanging up, the user’s
Message LED will turn Off (and back On), etc.
The red I-Use LED associated with the Attendant Message Waiting button on the DTAC is
inoperative.
The attendant can turn a user’s Message LED on or off without disturbing the user by going
off-hook on a System Access or Loop button, pressing the Attendant Message Waiting
button, and then dialing the station. Confirmation tone is returned, and the user’s Message
LED will turn on. To turn it off, press the button again.
Considerations
This feature allows the attendant to notify stations that a message is available for them.
This feature is not the same as the Station-To-Station Message Waiting or the Coverage
Message Waiting features. Refer to the “Messaging Services” feature description for a
summary of all system Messaging Services.
Interactions
The following features interact with Attendant Message Waiting.
Callback Queuing: An attendant active on a queued inside call can toggle the Message LED
of the queued-for station by pressing the Attendant Message Waiting button.
Conference: Pressing ATT MSG while on a conference call will be ignored.
2-41
FEATURES AND SERVICES
Coverage Calls: The attendant can light the Message LED of the covered station when
receiving a coverage call for the station.
Hands-Free Answer On Intercom: If the attendant lights the Message LED on a voice
terminal with AUTO ANS button active, the auto-answer function will turn off, allowing
subsequent calls to receive coverage as assigned.
Administration Requirements
Attendant Console (Voice Terminal) Port:
●
The ATT MSG button is defaulted and fixed on SLACs; it is defaulted on DTACs but
can be assigned to any programmable button.
Hardware Requirements
Stations must have a Message indicator (not assignable).
2-42
Attendant Position Busy
Attendant Position Busy
Description
This feature allows an Attendant Console to be placed in an inactive mode.
Systems with Direct Trunk Attendant Console(s) (DTAC)
There must be two Attendant Consoles in the system before this feature can be activated. A
Position Busy (POS BUSY) button can be assigned on each of the consoles. Pressing POS BUSY
at one of two active consoles causes the POS BUSY status LED to light and the console to be
placed in the inactive mode. Pressing POS BUSY a second time causes the LED to go dark and
the console to be reactivated. Pressing POS BUSY when only one Attendant Console is active is
ignored (i.e., only one console is allowed to be inactive at a time).
When a console is in the inactive mode, ringing is disabled on facility appearances on the two
rightmost button columns only. The (green) status LEDs will continue to operate normally. Calls to
floating PDCs not signed in, DID calls, and dial “0” calls will be transferred to the active console.
Internal calls to the PDC of the inactive console will still be directed to that console.
Incoming calls on lines that normally ring at only the inactive console will now ring at the active
console if they have an appearance there.
All buttons on the inactive console will continue to function normally, including the Selector Console
buttons. Calls can be originated by the inactive console. Call appearances in the leftmost two
columns of buttons on the inactive console are not affected by the Position Busy feature.
The attendant can press a Direct Station Selection (DSS), Automatic Intercom (AUTO ICOM), or a
Direct Facility Access (FACILITY) button and then receive busy-to-idle reminder when the facility
becomes idle.
Note that if a personal trunk appears on only one DTAC, incoming calls on those trunks will not
receive service when the console is inactive. For this reason, it is strongly recommended that each
DTAC attendant be assigned a Coverage-Individual (COVER-IND) button for the other console so
that these calls can be covered. Also, be sure to make the Attendant Console the principal station
(owner) on all trunks that are to receive coverage by the other attendant.
Systems with Switched Loop Attendant Console(s) (SLAC)
For the Position Busy feature to be operational, the system must have either two attendant
positions or one position plus a multiline voice terminal administered as a “backup.” If the system
has two consoles, pressing the Position Busy button on one will make it inactive and cause most
calls in the common console queue to be directed to the active console. Each attendant covers for
the other. Only one console can be in Position Busy condition at a time. If the system has one
console with an administered backup voice terminal, pressing the POS BUSY button will make the
SLAC inactive, and most calls from the common queue will be directed to the backup terminal.

Features and Services
A console in Position Busy mode can receive attendant PDC, DID, and DGC calls, and outgoing
calls can still be placed. Local functions can be activated.
Considerations
Position Busy allows one of two attendant positions to be made inactive when not required. This is
useful in situations where calling traffic requires only one console operator.
Interactions
The following features interact with Attendant Position Busy.
Attendant Call Extending: Unanswered calls extended by an inactive console will return to the
active console on the Return-On-Don't-Answer (RTN-DA) button (DTAC only) or on a Loop button
(SLAC only).
Attendant Camp-On: Calls Camped-On by an inactive console will return to the active console
when Camp-On timeout occurs.
Attendant Message Waiting: An inactive attendant is permitted to control voice terminal Message
LEDs.
Automatic Intercom: The inactive attendant is permitted to place Automatic Intercom calls. DTAC
only: Automatic Intercom calls to the inactive attendant will not ring at the console or be transferred
to the active attendant when the AUTO ICOM button is located in one of the two rightmost button
columns.
Backup Station (Single SLAC): If the Backup station is a member of a DGC group, it must be
logged into the group to receive attendant calls.
Coverage:
●
DTAC only—If the active attendant is a coverage receiver for the inactive attendant,
coverage is invoked and calls will appear at the active attendant’s Cover button. If the
inactive attendant is a coverage receiver for the active attendant, coverage, when
activated, is invoked at all coverage stations, including the inactive attendant. However, if
the Cover button is located in one of the two rightmost button columns, coverage calls will
not ring at these buttons.
●
SLAC only—All calls covered by the common queue will be directed to the active console.
Direct Group Calling: If the attendant is a member of a DGC Group, calls directed to the group
will be routed to the attendant. The attendant must dial ✶ 4 to log out of the group. Dialing ✶ 6 reenters (logs into) the group.
Direct Inward Dialing: All DID calls to unassigned DID numbers will be transferred to the active
attendant.
2-44
November 1995
Attendant Position Busy
Forwarding: If a PDC/FPDC is signed in at an inactive attendant console, then calls to this
PDC/FPDC will go to the active attendant (SLAC) or to the inactive attendant (DTAC only).
All calls to FPDCs not signed in will be transferred to the active attendant.
Night Service: An inactive attendant that is a Directed Night Service receiver will receive
Night Service calls.
Park: A call parked on the inactive attendant console will return to the inactive console if the
call times out; calls parked via the Selector Console will return to the active console.
Personal Lines: All calls to trunks having an appearance in either of the two leftmost button
columns of a DTAC will ring normally at the inactive console. All calls to trunks having
appearances in either of the two rightmost button columns will not ring. If these trunks also
have an appearance at the active console, they will ring there even if they do not normally.
Program: The Program feature remains active at the inactive console.
Programmable Buttons: All DSS, Flex DSS, and REP DIAL buttons remain active on the
inactive console.
Administration Requirements
Attendant Console (Voice Terminal) Port:
●
Assign Position Busy button on DTAC. A Position Busy button is defaulted to the
SLAC; it can be assigned to another feature if desired.
●
Assign COVER-IND buttons between consoles (DTAC only).
System
●
Designate “backup” multiline voice terminal (single-SLAC systems only).

FEATURES AND SERVICES
Attendant Release
Description
This feature releases the attendant from unextended call. There are two forms of Attendant
Release: Manual and Automatic. This feature applies to the Direct Trunk Attendant Console
(DTAC) and the Switched Loop Attendant Console (SLAC).
Manual Release:
Pressing RELEASE releases the attendant from an extended call and completes the
associated call transfer. The status LED of the original calling facility will change from hold
to busy for direct trunk terminations and from hold to idle for other call facilities (e.g., Loop,
Return-On-Busy, Return-On-Don’t-Answer, Cover, Automatic Intercom, DSS, and System
Access).
Calls cannot be released to Reorder or Dial Tone.
Pressing CANCEL terminates the destination call and reconnects the attendant to the calling
party. If the attendant goes on-hook without first releasing a call, the call extending
operation will be terminated (the calling party will be disconnected).
Automatic Release:
This feature simplifies the attendant procedures by eliminating the need for the attendant to
press RELEASE when releasing from one call to handle another. Selection of any new line
facility while active on the Start button will automatically release the first call. At release, the
status LED of the first calling facility will change from hold to busy for direct trunk
terminations and from hold to idle for other call facilities (e.g., Loop, Return-On-Busy,
Return-On-Don’t-Answer, Cover, Automatic Intercom, DSS, and System Access).
The Automatic Hold feature can be administered for the SLAC as an alternative to Automatic
Release. If the attendant, active on a loop call, presses another loop button to place a call or
pick Up a held call, the active call is put on hold—not released.
Considerations
Attendant Manual Release improves attendant efficiency in handling calls by allowing the
attendant to release an extended call without having to wait for the called station to answer.
Attendant Automatic Release enhances the attendant’s ability to handle many calls by
eliminating the Release operation when answering a second call.
The Release function is inhibited whenever the Start facility is connected to Reorder or Dial
Tone. Pressing CANCEL will terminate the destination call and reconnect the attendant to
the calling party.
Administering the Automatic Hold option instead of Automatic Release reduces the
occurrence of accidentally dropped calls.

FEATURES AND SERVICES
Attendant Return Coverage On Busy
Description
This feature allows a camped-on call at a busy station or DGC Group to be returned to the
attendant for service after a specified time period.
A camped-on call not answered within 1 to 120 seconds (administrable) after the attendant
releases the call will return to the console in one of the following ways:
●
On the Return-On-Busy (RTN-BUSY) button at a Direct Trunk Attendant Console
(DTAC).
●
On a LOOP button at a Switched Loop Attendant Console (SLAC).
To answer a returned call at a DTAC, the attendant presses RTN-BUSY (if not selected by
Ringing Line Preference.) A returned call can be reextended via the START button or a
Selector Console button. In either case, the Return-On-Busy button is idled as soon as the
attendant releases.
To answer a returned call at a SLAC, the attendant merely lifts the handset to be connected
to the ringing loop.
When the RTN-BUSY button is busy at a DTAC, the calling party will remain on-hold; if a loop
is not available at a SLAC, the returning call remains in the console queue. The system will
continue to attempt to ring the called station until the RTN-BUSY button is idle or a loop is
open. When Attendant Camp-On is not provided (Camp-On return time set to zero seconds),
calls released by the attendant to busy tone are returned to the console immediately.
Considerations
Attendant Return-Coverage-On-Busy allows the attendant to service calls not answered
within specified time intervals. This provides the calling party better service, and results in
fewer lost calls.
Interactions
The following features interact with Attendant Return Coverage On Busy.
Attendant Camp-On:
camped on.
External calls that are released when Busy Tone is heard will be
Attendant Console, Direct Trunk: As long as an Attendant Console remains active, the call
will return to the attendant who extended it.
Attendant Console, Switched Loop: A returning call is directed from the common queue to a
LOOP button. In a two-console system, returning calls can be administered to go to the first
attendant, the second attendant, either attendant, or to the specific attendant who originated
the call.
2-48
Attendant Return Coverage On Busy
Attendant Direct Extension Selection: If a call to a Floating PDC (FPDC) is returned to the
attendant, the FPDC’s status LED on the Selector Console will flash during ringing and go
dark when the call is answered.
Direct Group Calling: External calls that are camped onto a DGC group that does not have a
delay announcement will return to the attendant console after the specified number of rings.
Send All Calls (DTAC only): If Send All Calls is activated, returning calls will ring at the
DTAC.

FEATURES AND SERVICES
Attendant Return Coverage On Don’t Answer
Description
This feature allows unanswered calls extended by the attendant to be returned to the
attendant for additional service.
Calls that are not answered after a administered number of rings will transfer ringing to the
Return-On-Don’t-Answer (RTN-DA) button on a Direct Trunk Attendant Console (DTAC) or to
a LOOP button on a Switched Loop Attendant Console (SLAC). If the called voice terminal
has Coverage, the counting of rings for return begins only after the coverage station begins
ringing. If the terminal does not have Coverage but does have delayed ringing on System
Access or Bridged Access buttons, the delay interval (administered as an equivalent number
of rings) must expire before counting begins.
When the RTN-DA button is busy, calls will continue to ring at the called station until the
button is idle. If a SLAC is not available to receive the returning call, it stays in the common
queue until it can be serviced.
To answer a returned call at a DTAC, the attendant presses RTN-DA (if not selected by
Ringing Line Preference.) The call can be reextended via the START button or Selector
Console. In either case, the RTN-DA button is idled as soon as the attendant releases.
To answer a returned call at a SLAC, the attendant merely lifts the handset to be connected
to the ringing loop.
Considerations
Attendant Return-Coverage-On-Don’t-Answer allows the attendant to service calls not
answered within a specified number of rings. This provides the calling party better service
and results in fewer lost calls.
Interactions
The following features interact with Attendant Return Coverage on Don’t Answer.
Attendant Console, Direct Trunk: As long as an Attendant Console remains active, the call
will return to the attendant who extended it.
Attendant Console, Switched Loop: A returning call is directed from the common queue to a
LOOP button. In a two-console system, returning calls can be administered to go to the first
attendant, the second attendant, either attendant, or to the specific attendant who originated
the call.
Attendant Direct Extension Selection: If a call to a Floating PDC (FPDC) is returned to the
attendant, the FPDC’s status LED on the Selector Console will flash during ringing and go
dark when the call is answered.
2-50
Attendant Return Coverage On Don’t Answer
Coverage:
●
DTAC only—Whenever a DTAC attendant is a coverage receiver for a particular
coverage group and a call is placed from the attendant position via the Start button
or the Selector Console to a voice terminal in that group, the Coverage-Group
(COVER-GRP) button on the Attendant Console will not track the call (COVER-GRP
button status LED will not flash). If the call remains unanswered, it will return to the
Attendant Console on the RTN-DA button rather than the COVER-GRP button.
●
SLAC only—Whenever the common queue is a receiver for a coverage group and a
call is placed from the attendant position via the START button or the Selector
Console to a voice terminal in that group, an unanswered call will return to the
attendant queue as a Return-On-Don’t-Answer call (instead of as a coverage call).
Send All Calls (DTAC only): If Send All Calls is activated, returning calls will ring at the
DTAC.

System:
●
Assign number of rings before call return to the Attendant Position (1-31; default =

FEATURES AND SERVICES
Attendant Source and Destination (SLAC Only)
Description
This feature allows the attendant, while extending a call, to switch back and forth between
the calling party (the source) and the called party (the destination) before connecting them
together.
Pressing the SOURCE button on the SLAC after the called party has been reached has these
results:
●
The called party (the destination) is put on hold.
●
The attendant is reconnected to the calling party (the source)
●
The green status lamp of the DEST button starts winking to indicate that the
destination is on hold.
●
The green status lamp of the SOURCE button goes from winking to dark.
Pressing the DEST button after the source has been reconnected has these results:
●
The source is put on hold (again).
●
The attendant is reconnected to the destination
●
The green status lamp of the SOURCE button starts winking to indicate that the
source is on hold.
●
The green status lamp of the DEST button goes from winking to dark.
Considerations
The Source/Destination feature is useful when the attendant needs to talk to each party
privately before connecting them.
Interactions
The Source/Destination feature can only be activated before the two parties are connected
together.
When the attendant presses JOIN, the other parties and the attendant are joined in a 3-way
connection. When the attendant presses RELEASE, the other parties are connected, the call
is separated from the console, and the attendant is free to handle other calls. After the
source and destination parties are connected together, the SOURCE and DEST status lamps
go dark.
2-52
Attendant Splitting One-Way Automatic
Attendant Splitting One-Way Automatic
Description
This feature allows the attendant to converse privately with a called party while the calling
party is split away on hold.
When the attendant presses START (or a DXS button) to extend an incoming call to a called
party, the calling party is automatically split away from the connection and placed on hold.
This allows the attendant to talk privately with the called party before extending the call. The
attendant can then press RELEASE to complete the transfer or CANCEL to drop the called
station and return to the incoming call.
If the console is a SLAC, the attendant can also use the Join and Source/Destination
features while in the Start mode. Refer to the descriptions of these features for details.
Considerations
Attendant Splitting One-Way Automatic allows the attendant to (1) announce a call, (2)
determine privately whether the called party is available to receive the call, and (3) obtain
information if necessary to redirect the call or take a message.
Interactions
The following features interact with Attendant Splitting One-Way Automatic.
Attendant Source/Destination (SLAC only): This feature can be used after reaching the
called party. It allows the attendant to speak privately to both the calling party and the called
party before connecting them together.
Music-on-Hold: Music-on-hold is not provided to the calling party while the call is split from
the console.
2-53
FEATURES AND SERVICES
Attendant System Alarm Indication
Description
This feature provides a visible alarm on the Attendant Console to alert the attendant to
problems detected by the system software. The ALARM LED on the Attendant Console will
flash whenever a detected fault persists longer than four minutes, or if more than five
transient faults per hour are detected. The alarm indication should be reported immediately to
your AT&T Systems Technician.
The alarm type that causes an alarm indication is referred to as a Permanent System Alarm.
These alarms are faults that can cause degradation of service and require immediate
attention.
If a flashing ALARM button is pressed, the LED will change from flashing to steadily lit. A
new trouble situation will cause a steady ALARM LED to start flashing again. Only when the
trouble has been corrected will the LED turn off.
Considerations
The ALARM LED on the Attendant Console provides a warning as soon as the fault is
detected. This permits a quick response to system detected faults.
In a two-attendant system, both consoles track problems.
2-54
Automatic Intercom
Automatic Intercom
Description
This feature allows a multiline voice terminal user including ATL cordless telephone (or
attendant) to place and answer calls to and from another station by use of a dedicated
button appearance.
Automatic Intercom provides a private path between two designated multiline voice terminals.
To place an Automatic Intercom call, the calling party presses the Automatic Intercom (AUTO
ICOM) button and goes off-hook. The calling party hears ringback tone and the called party
receives standard ringing. The status LED associated with the button is steadily lit at the
calling voice terminal and flashing at the called voice terminal. To answer an Automatic
Intercom call, the called party presses AUTO ICOM (not necessary with Ringing Line
Preference) and goes off-hook.
The AUTO ICOM status LED lights steadily whenever the other party is off-hook. This
provides each party with a station-busy indication for the other. To activate the busy-to-idle
reminder, the user can press AUTO ICOM (remaining on-hook). A short burst of tone is
provided when the other party goes on-hook. The user can then go off-hook, and the call
will be placed; the user does not press the AUTO ICOM button again.
Pressing AUTO ICOM to invoke the busy-to-idle reminder overrides Prime Line Preference.
Once activated, the feature can only be canceled by preselection of another button or
answering an incoming call. See the “Busy-to-Idle Reminder” feature description for more
information.
At a Switched Loop Attendant Console, operation of an AUTO ICOM button seizes an idle
loop button for the outgoing call. An incoming Automatic Intercom call arrives on a loop
button and does not flash at the AUTO ICOM button of the console.
Considerations
The intercom feature should not be confused with ordinary station-to-station calling inside
the system using dialed PDCs. With Automatic Intercom, users who frequently call each
other can do so by pressing one button instead of dialing the extension number. In addition,
the station-busy indication and busy-to-idle reminder provide additional utility to users.
This feature is similar to Direct Station Selection (DSS), except that the buttons must always
be assigned in pairs (i.e., between two sets.) Hence, an AUTO ICOM button cannot point to
a single-line telephone. Also, Automatic Intercom calls arrive at the AUTO ICOM button,
thereby providing calling party ID; DSS calls arrive on System Access buttons.
2-55
FEATURES AND SERVICES
Interactions
The following features interact with Automatic Intercom.
Attendant Position Busy: The inactive attendant is permitted to place Automatic Intercom
calls. Automatic Intercom calls to an inactive DTAC where the AUTO ICOM button is located
in one of the two rightmost button columns will not ring at the console, nor can they be
covered by the active attendant. However, Automatic Intercom calls to an inactive SLAC will
ring there.
Bridging of System Access Buttons: Calls on Automatic Intercom buttons on the principal
station are not accessible from bridged call appearances on the bridging station.
Coverage: Automatic Intercom calls are considered private and do not receive coverage.
Direct Group Calling: Automatic Intercom calls cannot be directed to DGC groups.
Exclusion: Any attempt to engage Exclusion while active on an Automatic Intercom call will
drop the other party.
Last Number Dialed: Numbers called using an AUTO ICOM button are not saved by the Last
Number Dialed feature.
Line Selection (Prime Line Preference): When the Automatic Intercom line is assigned Prime
Line status, the AUTO ICOM button must be pressed to activate the busy-to-idle reminder
even though the I-use LED is already lighted steadily.
Pickup: When an Automatic Intercom call is answered via the Pickup feature, the AUTO
ICOM status LED on the called voice terminal lights steadily. The called party can press
AUTO ICOM to enter the call at any time.

Automatic Route Selection (ARS)
Automatic Route Selection (ARS)
Description
This feature provides for the routing of calls over the telecommunications network based on
preferred routes (normally the least expensive route available at the time the call is placed.)
An ARS pattern can be composed of two subpatterns (time of day determines which subpattern is
selected), each consisting of up to three routes, associated Facility Restriction Level (FRL) codes
(described below), and CO overflow flags. A route is identified by specifying a Facility Access Code
for the pooled facility (trunk group); a route may also be identified by specifying a Virtual Facility
code.
A trunk group or virtual facility can be used in more than one ARS pattern and more than once
within a pattern.
Call routing can be specified by as many as eight routing patterns. Each pattern contains a
sequential list of routes (for example, trunk groups) the system can use to complete a call. Number
translations (deletion and addition of dialed digits) necessary to route the call are determined on a
trunk group basis. Overflow to the local CO when all trunks in a pattern are busy or the route FRL is
too high is optional. If all trunks in a pattern are busy (including CO trunks if overflow is allowed),
the call may be queued (via the Callback Queuing feature) on the first route in the pattern.
All calls placed using the ARS access code (default = 9) are routed via the feature. The dialed
numbers that follow the ARS access code are generally seven- or ten-digit DDD numbers preceded
by a “1” if required by the serving Central Office. Numbers preceded by a “0” are routed over the
local CO pooled facility.
The present CO numbering plan (expected to be replaced in 1995) is typically a dialed 7-digit
number consisting of a CO code and exchange number in the form NXX-YYYY where N = 2–9, X =
0-9, and Y = 0-9; and a 10-digit number consisting of an area code, CO code, and exchange
number in the form NPA-NXX-YYYY where N = 2–9, P = 0-1, A = 1–9, X = 0-9, and Y = 0-9.
The Interchangeable Numbering Plan Area ([INPA] for 1995 and beyond) allows area codes to be
NAA instead of Area Code. The 10-digit number plan allows CO codes to be XXX.
Each route in a pattern has an associated FRL (0-3). This FRL may differ each time the facility is
specified as a route. A facility with an FRL of “0” is least restricted to callers; an FRL of “3” is the
most restricted. Similarly, each station in the system is assigned an FRL (0-3). A terminal assigned
an FRL of “0” has the least ARS privileges (i.e., routes with FRLs of 1-3 are restricted); an FRL of
“3” provides the most privileges. To use a route, a station’s FRL must be equal to or greater than
the route’s FRL.
The ARS feature, when accessed, selects a pattern as follows:
●
Emergency Number Calls (routed via the local CO facility)
●
Service Code (N11 or X11, where X = 0 to 9) Calls (routed via an associated routing
pattern)
●
International Calls (routed via the administered international pattern)
November 1995
2-57
Features and Services
●
Calls made to specified COs or seven-digit telephone numbers within the Home Number
Plan Area (Home Area Code). These calls are routed as specified in the Home Area Code
Exception Lists, or else via the Area Code Routing Table, or (by default if not otherwise
specified) the local CO facility.
●
Calls made to Area Codes outside the Home Area Code, sometimes referred to as Foreign
Area Codes (FNPAs). The route selected depends on the type of call, as follows:
— FNPA special number calls (includes all “800,” “900,” and Telex 510, 610, 710, and 810
numbers). Each FNPA of the form N00 and N10 may be assigned to a routing pattern.
— FNPA calls made to numbers specified in the FNPA Exception List.
— All other FNPA calls.
ARS Flow Chart
Figure 2-8 provides a simplified ARS flow chart. Bracketed numbers (e.g., [401], [601]) provide a
link between ARS administrable action numbers and the associated item on the flow chart. Certain
readers may find this reference useful when reading the following description in association with the
System 25 Administration Manual. Administrable System, Station, Toll Allowed, and Trunk action
numbers are also noted where applicable.
The ARS feature is accessed when a user dials the ARS access code. As shown on Figure 2-8, the
number dialed is first checked against the Emergency Numbers List. This list consists of special
service code 911 and up to three customer-defined seven-digit numbers. If the number dialed
matches one of the numbers on the list, the call is immediately routed via the local CO facility. All
user call restrictions are disregarded.
If the number dialed is not on this list, a check is made to determine if the terminal is allowed to
originate outside calls. If the terminal is outward restricted, the caller receives Reorder Tone;
otherwise, the dialed number is checked against any toll restrictions that apply.
Terminals may be assigned a Toll Restriction Class (1–5) or be unrestricted (Class 0). Terminals
assigned Toll Restriction Class 1 have the most privileges of restricted terminals; those assigned
Class 5 have the least privileges. There are five associated Toll Call Allowed/Disallowed Lists (1-5)
in the system. Up to 164 3-digit CO codes, 6-digit Area Code plus CO codes, and 6-digit
international codes (consisting of 0 plus 5 international digits) may be divided among the five lists.
Domestic numbers dialed from voice terminals assigned Toll Restriction Class 1 are checked
against all five Toll Call Allowed (TCA) Lists; domestic numbers dialed from Class 2 terminals are
checked against TCA Lists 2–5; domestic numbers dialed from Class 3 terminals are checked
against TCA Lists 3–5; domestic numbers dialed from Class 4 terminals are checked against Lists 4
and 5; and numbers dialed from Class 5 terminals are checked against List 4 only. If a domestic
number dialed does not appear or if an international number does appear in a checked list, the user
receives Reorder Tone. Calls originated at unrestricted (Class 0) terminals are not checked.
2-58
November 1995
Automatic Route Selection (ARS)
Calls are checked to determine if they are international calls or operator calls. Dialed numbers “01”
or 011 signify international calls, “0” plus a number other than “1” signify operator calls (00 calls
signify Intra-Lata operator calls). If the call is an international call and the terminal is not restricted,
the international routing pattern is selected and the call routed accordingly. Operator calls are
routed via the local CO facility.
Calls within the Home Area Code are checked to determine if a special W11 service code (N = 0-8)
has been dialed. Dialed W11 codes assigned a routing pattern are routed via the routing pattern. All
other call types are checked against the Home Area Code Exception Lists. There may be up to four
of these lists, each with an associated ARS Routing Pattern. Up to 800 3-digit office codes may be
divided among the four lists (eight entries may be 7-digit numbers). If a match is found, the call is
routed via the associated ARS Routing Pattern. If no match is found, the dialed number is routed
via the Home Area Code pattern (specified in the Area Code Routing Table), or if none is specified,
via the local CO facility.
If a number is entered more than once in the exception list, the pattern used will be the pattern
associated with the more specific number.
The Area Code Routing Table is simply a listing of North American Plan Area Codes and Special
Number Area Codes, each having an associated ARS Routing Pattern (all pre-1995 North
American Area Codes are assigned routing pattern 1 by default). A dialed Area Code that is listed in
the table is routed using the associated pattern. Calls to Area Codes not listed are routed via the
local CO facility.
The dialed non-local numbers without a route assigned are checked against the Other Area Code
Exception List. Up to 512 entries maybe assigned to the list. Each entry must consist of a 3-digit
NPA code, 3-digit CO code, and two additional digits (for a total of 8 digits). The last four digits may
be “.”, which matches any digit. Each entry has an associated ARS Routing Pattern. If a match is
found, the call is routed using this pattern. If no match is found, the call is checked against the NPA
Routing Table. A dialed NPA that is listed in the table is routed by using the associated pattern.
Numbers that don't match are routed via the local CO facility.
ARS Routing Pattern Table
Figure 2-9 provides a block diagram of an ARS Routing Pattern. Up to eight of these patterns may
be administered in the system. Each pattern consists of two subpatterns that maybe chosen based
on the time of day. Each subpattern (A and B) can contain up to three allowed routes. If all routes in
a subpattern are busy, a CO overflow flag (when set) allows the call to be routed via the local CO
facility; otherwise, the call will queue on the first route in the subpattern.
Administrable Start and Stop times (Hour and Minute) for Routing Subpattern A specify when
Subpattern A should be used to route calls. Subpattern B is used to route calls at all other times.
Each route is specified by its trunk group facility access code or Virtual Facility code and an
associated FRL.
November 1995
2-59
Features and Services
An FRL is typically lower for the first route in a subpattern and increases with each additional route
in the pattern. A terminal’s FRL must be equal to or greater than the route FRL for the route to be
selected. The system first checks the Route #1 for an available trunk on which to route the call. If
the route is busy, Route #2 is checked, then Route #3, if required. If all routes in the subpattern are
busy and the CO overflow flag is set, the voice terminal FRL is checked against an associated
Overflow FRL before routing the call.
If all routes in a subpattern are busy and the CO Overflow flag is not set, or all CO trunks are busy,
the call returns to the first route in the subpattern and may be queued (if the station FRL permits
access to the first route) via the Callback Queuing feature. A route #1 must be specified in the
subpattern for a call to queue. If it is not, callers receive Reorder Tone and will not be able to
queue.
Once a route has been selected, the entries in a Digit Translations Table associated with the
selected route’s trunk group or Virtual Facility is checked. Based on an associated NAA and the
NAA dialed, the system can remove up to 10 digits and then add a pattern of up to 5 digits as
specified to route the call.
The following tones are associated with ARS:
●
Confirmation—Indicates that a queued call is being serviced (trunk available to route call)
●
Busy—Indicates that the called number is busy
●
Reorder—Indicates that all trunks are busy or that ARS calling is denied
Considerations
With ARS, users do not have to worry about accessing a particular pooled facility to place a long
distance call. The user simply dials the ARS access code and the desired number. The system then
routes the call via the facility best suited for that call.
The following provides a summary of the ARS call routing controls provided by the feature:

Service Codes (W11 Numbers): An ARS Routing Pattern can be assigned to each W11
(W = 0-9) Service Code. If no routing pattern is assigned, the system assumes that the
W11 number is a local CO code and will wait for four additional digits to be dialed before
processing it as a local call.
●
Toll Call Allowed/Disallowed Lists: 1-5 lists, 164 entries maximum of 3-digit numbers
between all lists. Entries examined by ARS may be 3-digit CO codes or 6-digit NAA plus
CO codes. International dial codes entered in the Toll Allowed List are treated as
DISALLOWED entries rather than ALLOWED entries. The international entries have the
form “0ABCDE” (6 digits always with a leading zero), where ABCDE can be any digit
ranging from (0-9 or “.”, which is a wild card. If 0 + 5 dots are entered in a Toll Disallowed
List, the station(s) assigned to the class cannot make international calls. (Administrable for
users besides ARS.)
●
Station Toll Restriction Class: 1-5 Classes (administrable for users besides ARS)
●
Home Area Code (HNAA) Exception List: 1-4 Lists, each with an associated ARS
Routing Pattern. Eight hundred 3-digit CO codes entries maximum between all lists (eight
of the entries maybe 7-digit numbers.)
November 1995
Automatic Route Selection (ARS)
●
Area Code (NAA) Routing Table: Entries may include every North American NAA and
Special Number NAA, each with an associated ARS Routing Pattern. All NAAs existing
before 1995 are assigned Routing Pattern #1 by default. As new NAAs are created, they
have to be assigned routing patterns.
●
Other Area Code Exception List: One List with up to 512 eight-digit numbers. Each entry
has an associated ARS Routing Pattern.
●
Digit Translations Tables: One per trunk group.
A system can have up to eight ARS Routing Patterns assigned. Each pattern can contain up to six
routes (three per subpattern).
Interactions
The following features interact with Automatic Route Selection.
Bridging of System Access Buttons: When a station user originates a call on a Bridged Access
button and dials the ARS code, the call is completed according to the restrictions assigned to that
station, not the principal station.
Callback Queuing: Implementation of Callback Queuing affects ARS in three respects:
●
On-hook ARS queuing is allowed.
●
Callback Queuing and ARS share a common queue, which has a capacity of 64 calls.
●
When a station without automatic queuing originates an ARS call, the caller hears reorder
tone if all routes are busy; the call can then be queued manually.
Calling Restrictions: Outward Restriction and Toll Restriction, when administered, prevent calls
from routing via ARS in a manner similar to directly accessing a trunk or pool. Pooled facility
access restrictions do not apply. In fact, the recommended arrangement to ensure that users make
maximum use of ARS is to block dial access to most trunk groups, so that users must dial the ARS
access code to place calls.
Direct Facility Access Button: Multiline voice terminal users who have pressed FACILITY to
activate the busy-to-idle reminder must wait until all queued ARS users have been serviced.
Interexchange Carrier (IXC): Calls cannot be dialed via ARS from any station.
Tie Trunks: Immediate Dial tie trunks should not be used in ARS routing patterns.
Virtual Facilities: Virtual Facilities may be used in place of trunk groups in ARS routing patterns.
When used with ARS, a digit translation scheme may be associated with each virtual facility. See
the “Virtual Facilities” feature description for more information.

Bridging of System Access Buttons
Bridging of System Access Buttons
Description
This feature allows a multiline station user to handle calls on Bridged Access (BA) buttons
associated with System Access (SA) buttons of another multiline station (Figure 2-10).
The following terms are used throughout this feature description:
●
Principal station— a multiline voice terminal that has SA buttons bridged by one or
more other multiline stations.
●
Principal—the user of a principal station.
●
BA button—a special call appearance button on a multiline station administered to
correspond to a specific SA button on another user’s station (the principal station);
collectively referred to as bridged appearances.
●
Bridging station —a multiline voice terminal with one or more BA buttons.
A BA button can be assigned to any programmable feature button on a bridging station, but
it does not take the place of a SA button. The SA buttons on the bridging station can be
bridged by other stations.

call has been reached.
2-67
FEATURES AND SERVICES
The user active on a BA button can use many features with the bridged call; operation is no
different from calls on other buttons. For example, Hold, Conference, and Transfer can be
used from a BA button just as they would be used from a SA button. Calling restrictions
applied to calls made on bridged appearances are those of the bridging station, not those of
the principal station.
System 25 has the following bridging capacities and limitations:
●
The number of principal stations is limited only by the number of multiline sets on the
system.
●
The number of SA buttons a principal station can have is limited only by the number
of available buttons on the terminal.
●
Each SA button on a principal station can have a bridged call appearance on up to
16 multiline voice terminals.
●
The number of principals for which a station has bridged call appearances is limited
only by the number of available programmable buttons.
●
The maximum number of parties active on a bridged call is five (no more than two of
these may be outside parties).
Incoming calls ring the principal station and its bridging stations according to ring options
specified by the System Administrator. The principal station can be administered to send, or
not send, ringing to the bridging station; both stations can be administered to receive
immediate ring, delayed ring, or no ring for incoming calls. Table 2-F summarizes the effect
of different settings for these ring options.

Principal Station
As with standard System 25 operation, off-hook stations receive abbreviated alerting instead
of repeated ringing. In addition, ring options have no effect on visual alerting via status LEDs
on SA or BA buttons.
When an inside or outside call comes into a SA button of an idle principal station, it and each
bridging station receive ringing, according to options set by the System Administrator, and
visual alerting with a flashing status LED. If one of the users picks up the call, the green
2-68
Bridging of System Access Buttons
status LEDs of the SA button and the bridged appearances light steadily. If neither principal
nor bridging user answers, the call goes to the principal’s coverage—if provided—in the
usual way. When the covering station answers, the status LEDs at the principal and bridging
stations light.
When a call comes into an idle SA button of a principal who is busy on another SA button,
the bridging station(s) will receive flashing (and ringing, if administered) on the bridged
appearance of the called button. A bridging station can answer the call.
A call to a principal with all SA buttons busy will receive busy tone unless coverage is
available or Call Waiting is administered. Bridging stations do not have access to the call.
Considerations
The bridging feature meets the needs of executive/secretary type arrangements where both
parties place and receive calls on the same extension numbers. Bridging allows more
complete coverage of all incoming calls. It provides options that can enable several callanswering patterns.
It is recommended that each SA button at a principal station have a corresponding BA button
at the bridging station. With this arrangement, the bridging user can track all calls coming to
the principal’s SA buttons.
Except for their bridging functions,
associated principal stations.
bridging stations operate independently of their
The bridging feature applies only to calls appearing on the SA buttons of a principal station.
Calls on Automatic Intercom, Personal Line, DSS, and Flex DSS buttons are not accessible
from a BA button.
Interactions
The following features interact with Bridging.
Abbreviated Ringing: When a call arrives on an SA button of the principal, off-hook
stations—principal and bridging—that have bridged ringing enabled receive abbreviated
ringing. The green status LEDs of the SA button and the BA button associated with the
incoming call continue to flash after the abbreviated ring.
Account Code Entry: A station user can use the Optional Account Code Entry feature for
incoming or outgoing calls on bridged appearances. If a bridging station user has the Forced
Account Code Entry (FACE) feature, an account code must be entered for all applicable
outgoing calls on both SA and BA buttons.
Attendant Positions: Direct Trunk Attendant Consoles cannot serve as principal stations.
Switched Loop Attendant Consoles cannot serve as either principal or bridging stations.
2-69
FEATURES AND SERVICES
Automatic Intercom: Calls on Automatic Intercom buttons on the principal station are not
accessible from bridged call appearances.
Automatic Route Selection (ARS): When a station user originates a call on a BA button and
dials the ARS access code. the call is completed according to the restrictions assigned to
that station. The restrictions of the principal and the other bridging stations have no effect.
Callback Queuing: Calls originated on Bridged Access (BA) buttons can be queued. On
callback attempts, only the originator will be rung; all other appearances will only flash. Any
appearance in the bridging arrangement can be used to drop a queued call, if no other
station is off-hook.
If both principal and bridging users are off-hook on a call to a busy facility, only the first one
off-hook can queue the call.
Calling Restrictions: If a station goes off-hook on a BA button and dials a number, the call
is completed according to the bridging station’s restrictions and characteristics, not the
principal station’s.
Two bridging stations or a bridging station and its principal station can attempt to originate a
call on their corresponding SA and BA buttons at the same time. This call is completed
according to the calling restrictions of the station that went off-hook first.
Conference: A station user can make conference calls on BA buttons using the normal
conference feature operations. When a call is held for conference by pressing the
CONFERENCE button, an idle System Access (SA) button or an idle System AccessOriginate Only button, if available, is automatically selected by the system for placing the new
call. If neither of these button types is idle, the user can manually select a BA button or any
other call appearance button on which to place the new call.
While a bridging station or principal is in the process of setting up a conference call, the
green status LED of the held call’s BA button or SA button has a broken flutter indication.
Other bridging or principal stations that are actively bridged to the call have steadily lighted
status LEDs; stations that are not active on the call have winking green status LEDs
(indicating that the appearance is on hold).
Coverage—Individual and Group: An incoming call is given individual and/or group coverage
according to the coverage specified for the principal. Calls appearing on BA buttons at the
bridging stations are not extended to the coverage specified for those stations.
Display: Call descriptor “ ^ ” appears in position 15 of Screen 1 for a call containing more
than two active parties; position 16 contains the actual number of bridgers. The number of
parties is displayed at each terminal in a bridged call and is updated as the status changes.

The “ ^ ” and the number of bridging parties overwrite whatever was in positions 15 and 16

2-70
Bridging of System Access Buttons
Direct Group Calling (OGC): DGC calls arriving on SA buttons at a principal station can
receive bridging treatment at a bridging station.
Direct Station Selection (DSS): Calls from DSS or Flex DSS buttons on the principal station
are not accessible from bridged appearances.
Exclusion: If a principal or bridging station presses the EXCLUSION button during a call, all
other internal stations on the call will be dropped. In addition, Exclusion will prevent any
other internal station from bridging onto the call.
Following: Sign-in and sign-out procedures can be performed at the destination station on
either a SA button or a BA button. However, since Following calls always arrive on SA
buttons, the destination station must have at least one SA button.
Following calls arriving at a principal SA button are accessible at bridged call appearances of
that button.
Forwarding: This feature is station-oriented. It can be activated and deactivated for a
forwarding principal station only at a SA button on that station. If forwarding is activated at a
BA button on a bridging station, it affects calls to that station only.
Hands-Free Answer on Intercom (HFAI): If a station has HFAI activated, internal calls
arriving at this station on a SA button will auto-answer. However, calls arriving at this station
on a BA button will ring according to the administered ring option and will not auto-answer.
Hold: A principal or bridging station user who is active on a bridged call can hold the call by
pressing the HOLD button. If there is still a bridging or principal station active on the call,
the green status LEDs of all associated SA/BA buttons remain lighted steadily. If no other
bridging or principal station is active on the call, the green status LEDs of all associated
SA/BA buttons wink.
Any of the principal or bridging stations can enter the held call, unless Exclusion has been
activated or the maximum number of parties are already connected to the conversation.
Last Number Dialed: The Last Number Dialed feature saves numbers called from either SA
or BA buttons.
Line Status and I-Use Indications: The meanings of green line status and red I-use
indications on BA buttons are consistent with all other System 25 operation.
Message Waiting: Stations with bridged appearances can have Coverage Message Waiting
(COVER-MSG) buttons. By using the COVER-MSG button, the bridging user can check
and/or change the status of the principal’s Message LED. If the bridging station also serves
as an Individual Coverage receiver, the same COVER-MSG button can be used for bridging
and coverage messaging needs. Use of the COVER-MSG button is identical to current
System 25 operation.
Night Service: Directed Night Service calls ring immediately at an available SA button on the
Night Service station, regardless of the administered ring option. Bridged appearances of
this SA button will flash but not ring, regardless of the administered ring option.
2-71
FEATURES AND SERVICES
Park: If a station is active on a bridged call appearance and activates Park, the call is parked
on the Personal Dial Code (PDC) number of the principal station, not of the bridging station.
If the parked call is not answered, it will return on the principal’s SA button.
Personal Speed Dialing: Personal Speed Dialing is a station-oriented feature. If a station
dials a Personal Speed Dialing code (#20-#39) while off-hook on a BA button, the system
will handle this call exactly as if the code was dialed from this station’s SA button.
Pickup: Pickup is a station-oriented feature. Thus, calls ringing at a principal SA button can
be picked up by members of the principal’s Pickup Group; calls ringing at a BA button can be
picked up by members of the bridging station’s Pickup Group. If a user dials the Group
Pickup access code while active on a BA button, the system interprets this as an attempt to
pick up a call in the Pickup Group of the bridging station, not of the principal station.
Calls ringing at either a principal SA button or an associated BA button can be picked up by
using the Directed Pickup feature.
Pooled Facility—Dial Access: A station originating a call on a BA button and using a facility
access code is granted access to that pool according to the Calling Restrictions assigned to
the bridging station, not the principal station.
Prime Line Preference: A BA button can be specified as the preferred line for outgoing calls
when the station goes off-hook.
Program: A bridging station user can program only the Personal Speed Dialing codes, REP
DIAL buttons, and FLEX DSS buttons associated with the bridging station, not with the
principal station.
Repertory Dialing: If a station user selects a bridged appearance for an outgoing call and
then depresses a REP DIAL button, the digits programmed into the button are outpulsed as
they would be if the user had selected one of the station’s own SA buttons.
Ringing Line Preference: If a station has ringing line preference enabled and has a ringing
bridged call appearance, an on-hook user is connected to the bridged appearance if the set
goes off-hook. This is the same as current System 25 operation.
Send All Calls: The principal station can be administered so that pressing the SEND ALL
CALLS button will send ringing for incoming calls to its coverage stations only, to its bridging
stations only, or to both.
If ringing is sent to a BA button via Send All Calls, and if the BA button is administered to not
receive ringing, the call will flash (but not ring) at the BA button. If ringing is sent to a BA
button via Send All Calls, and if the BA button is administered to receive ringing (immediate
or delayed), then the call will ring immediately on the BA button.
Station Message Detail Recording (SMDR): When an outside call is answered or originated
at a BA button, the SMDR record for this call will report the bridging station’s PDC number
under the STN column and the principal station’s PDC number under the PDC column. If the
Call Accountability feature is used when originating a call at a BA button, the PDC column
will contain the accountable (entered) PDC number in place of the principal’s PDC.
2-72
Bridging of System Access Buttons
If two bridged stations attempt to originate a call at the same time, and if the call is
completed, the PDC number of the station that dialed the first digit is placed in the SMDR
records under the STN column.
Transfer: A call can be transferred from a bridged call appearance using the usual transfer
operations. When a call is held for transfer by pressing the TRANSFER button, an idle
System Access button or an idle System Access-Originate Only button, if available, is
automatically selected by the system for placing the new call. If neither of these appearance
types is idle, the user can manually select a BA button or any other call button on which to
place the new call.
The transfer operation and status indications of the principal’s SA button (and its
corresponding BA buttons) are similar to Personal Line operation with the following
exceptions: Calls can be from/to an inside station or from/to an outside location, and after
the transfer is completed (transferring station goes on-hook) the call will stay at the
principal’s SA button and its BA buttons only if one or more of these stations is bridged to
the call. Otherwise, the call will be removed. An on-hold bridging station or principal is not
considered to be bridged to the call.
Administration Requirements

FEATURES AND SERVICES
Busy-To-Idle Reminder
Description
Busy-to-Idle Reminder alerts a multiline voice terminal user by a single ring as soon as a
busy internal station, DGC group, or facility (trunk group) becomes available. The feature
can be activated only for stations, DGC groups, and trunk groups represented on the
terminal by DSS, FLEX DSS, AUTO ICOM, and FACILITY buttons.
Before making a call to a station, the multiline voice terminal user can check the green status
LED of the station button. If it is lit, the station party is off-hook. To be alerted when the
party hangs up and is available again, the user (while on-hook), presses the button of the
station. The red I-use LED lights, indicating that Busy-to-Idle Reminder is in effect. When
the other party hangs up, the user’s terminal rings once. The user simply goes off-hook, and
the station is called; the user does not have to press the button again.
If the user calls a station by pressing a FLEX DSS or DSS, button and receives busy tone,
the user must hang up before activating Busy-to-Idle Reminder.
When all the trunks in a pool represented by a FACILITY button are busy, the green status
LED is lighted. The user can activate Busy-to-Idle Reminder in the same way as for a station
call, by pressing the FACILITY button while on-hook. When a trunk becomes idle, the
terminal rings once. The user goes off-hook and if the trunk is still available is automatically
connected to the trunk. To complete the call the user dials the desired outside number.
Considerations
Busy-to-Idle Reminder gives the multiline voice terminal user a way to get quick access to a
station or trunk group that has just become available after being busy. Access to the station
or trunk is not reserved for the user who activates this feature; any other user has equal
access to the idle facilities.
On some multiline voice terminals, FLEX DSS, DSS, AUTO ICOM, and FACILITY buttons do
not have status and I-use LEDs. This makes Busy-to-Idle Reminder less convenient to use
because the user must first call the facility to determine if it is available. If it is not, the user
activates the feature by hanging up and pressing the button again. When the reminder ring
sounds, the user must then remember which button was used to initiate the call.
Interactions
Display: When a user receives this signal, the display format is the same as when the call
was originally placed, except that idle descriptor “I” appears in position 1. Number and
name fields are displaced to the right.
Busy-to-Idle Reminder cannot be used with the Last Number Dialed, Personal Line, or
Repertory Dialing features.
2-74
Call Accountability
Call Accountability
Description
This feature allows calls made by system users from other users’ stations to be charged to
the callers’ own “home” Personal Dial Code (PDC).
To charge a call to the home PDC, the user dials ## followed by the PDC immediately upon
receiving first dial tone to place a call. When second dial tone is returned, the user dials the
desired number in the normal way.
After completion of the call, the SMDR record will reflect the “accountable” PDC (that is, the
caller) in the “PDC” field, and the PDC of the voice terminal used in the “STN” field.
Considerations
Call Accountability, if used consistently, helps to ensure that calling costs are attributed
accurately to the personnel who incur the costs. Users do not use this feature when calling
from their own stations or when making inside calls from any station.
Interactions
All of the following conditions apply only when a user is calling from another user’s station.
Account Code Entry, Forced: The account code entry can be made before or after the Call
Accountability entry. Dial tone is returned to the user after either entry.
Account Code Entry, Optional:
Accountability.
This feature can be used on the same call with Call
Call Accounting System: The caller’s PDC that is entered by the Call Accountability
procedure is integrated into the reports generated by Call Accounting systems.
Callback Queuing: Any call accountability information entered before activation of queuing is
saved for SMDR.
Display: The characters and digits dialed to charge a call are displayed, followed by the
called number.
Pooled Facility—Direct Access: When a call is made using a FACILITY button, ##PDC
must be dialed before pressing the button.
Remote Access: Remote Access callers cannot use Call Accountability.
Repertory Dialing: When a call is made using a REP DIAL button, ##PDC must be dialed
before pressing the button.
Speed Dialing: When a call is made using Speed Dialing, ##PDC must be dialed before
dialing the Speed Dialing code.

Pack. This data can be fed to a Call Accounting System (CAS) for preparing a variety of cost
estimate reports and for providing management and directory type services. For additional
information on the call data available at Interface Port 2, refer to the Station Message Detail
Recording (SMDR) feature description.
Three station features of System 25 are also related to Call Accounting and are covered in
separate feature descriptions. Account Code Entry, both Forced and Optional, allows
individual voice terminal users to associate specific account codes with their calls, when
necessary. Call Accountability provides users with the means to properly identify calls they
make from stations other than their own. The information gathered from these two features
is part of the data output from the processor to the CAS.
Two types of CASs can be used with System 25:
●
CAS Model 200, 300, 500, or 2000 Software Package associated with an AT&T
Personal Computer (PC) 6300.
●
CAS Model 200, 300, 500, or 2000 Software Package associated with a Master
Controller (UNIX PC).
CAS Models 200, 300, 500, and 2000:
The System 25 SMDR interface provides direct output to the CAS software running on either
an AT&T Personal Computer equipped with MS-DOS (V2.11 or later) or a UNIX PC Master
Controller. CAS calculates the cost of calls and provides basic and sophisticated call reports.
After a telephone call is completed, System 25 sends a call record to the AT&T Personal
Computer via the SMDR interface channel. The PC must be equipped with and running CAS
software. Call records are collected by the PC and held in a buffer until they are processed.
When a call record is processed, a cost is calculated and assigned to it. That cost, along
with other call record information, is then stored on a hard disk for subsequent retrieval.
Two modes of operation are available for PC operation:
●
2-76
Dedicated Mode: The PC is dedicated to one and only one task—processing call
records.
Call Accounting System (CAS)
●
Multi-Function Mode: Allows the user to print reports, edit files, and run other PC-based
programs while the CAS continues to collect and buffer call records in the background. The
user must enter the Dedicated Mode to process calls and generate reports.
The CAS performs three main functions; (1) call record processing, (2) report generation, and (3)
CAS system management. In addition, a limited directory lookup and message center is provided.
The following is a brief description of each function:
1.
Process Calls: Involves screening call records, calculating the cost of valid calls, and storing
the call records.
2.
Generate Reports: Allows the user to print the stored call record information organized in
one of several different ways. Users can select a report or set up their own special
combination of reports from the following:
●
Summary Reports—A collection of reports that condense and summarize call
record information by total number of calls, duration, and cost. The reports can be
organized by department, call type, cost center, trunk, extension, cost, duration,
time of day, date, and account code.
●
Organization Detail Report—A detailed report of each call record in the system,
sorted by department, cost center, and extension.
●
Selection Report—This report can contain at a user’s option, summary or detailed
information based on any combination of the following items: time of day, date,
cost, duration, extension, access code, account code, dialed number, call type,
department, or cost center.
●
Account Code Detailed Report—A detailed report on call records sorted by account
code. This report can be used for billing clients for calls made in their behalf.
●
Preselected Report—Allows up to five predefine reports, which can include any
of the above mentioned reports. These reports can run upon request or at a
specified time and date.
3.
System Management: Allows the user to perform several functions. These include editing
the table of departments, cost centers, and extensions; setting up account codes; defining
preselected reports; and keeping call rate information up to date. System configuration may
be changed. This allows the user to inform the CAS of changes in System 25 (e.g., dial
access codes, trunks) or changes in charge rates. System housekeeping may also be
performed. This includes establishing passwords, deleting call records, determining call
processing options, and performing various disk maintenance operations.
4.
Directory Lookup and Message Center: Allows the user to look up anyone by last name, first
name, or extension. Messages can be recorded for individuals and can be printed or
displayed.

Callback Queuing
Callback Queuing
Description
This feature provides System 25 users with a simple way to complete calls to busy facilities
(stations or trunk groups), without having to manually repeat the calling procedures.
Callback Queuing puts inside calls to busy stations and trunk pools into a queue. The
maximum number of queue slots is 64, administrable in any combination of inside and
outside calls. After a call is queued for the busy facility, the caller can stay off-hook or go
on-hook. When the queued-for facility becomes free to receive another call, the system
directs the longest waiting call to the facility and signals its originator that the call is being
completed.
Each station can activate Callback Queuing manually or can be administered for automatic
activation of inside calls only, outside calls only, or all calls. Manual activation is by dial
access at single-line sets and by operation of the RECALL button at multiline sets.
Automatic activation, if administered, occurs whenever a busy facility is called and requires
no action by the caller; it can be canceled manually.
Inside Calls
An inside station is considered busy if all its System Access (SA) buttons are in use (multlline
sets), if it is off-hook (single-line sets), and if all coverage points are busy. A call to such a
station will receive busy or special ringback tone if the calling station is not administered for
automatic queuing; the caller can then activate queuing manually. If the calling station has
automatic queuing, the caller hears queuing tone (five short beeps) instead of busy or special
ringback, and the call goes into queue.
●
Manual Queuing
A single-line terminal user activates manual queuing by flashing the switchhook to
get recall dial tone and then dialing the callback access code #60. A multiline user
presses RECALL to manually queue for a busy station. Queuing tone is returned if
the call can be queued; if not, reorder tone is heard, and the caller must try again
later.
●
Automatic Queuing
When the user of a single-line or multiline terminal administered for this option calls a
busy station, queuing tone is returned immediately. If maximum queue size has been
reached, the caller gets busy tone and must try again later.
●
Off-Hook Queuing
After a call has queued for a busy station, the caller can wait off-hook for the
connection to be completed. The caller hears dequeuing tone (three short beeps)
when the queued-for station becomes available and then ringback as the station is
being rung.
2-81
FEATURES AND SERVICES
While off-hook on a queued call, a single-line user can transfer or conference the
call.
●
On-Hook Queuing
The caller can hang up after a call to a busy station goes into queue. The call retains
an association with the on-hook calling terminal, and a callback will alert the on-hook
user when the queued-for station is available. After a single-line terminal user goes
on-hook, the queued call cannot be accessed until a callback attempt occurs. During
the waiting period, the single-line user can place or receive other calls.
When a multiline user hangs up after a call is queued, the green status LED of the
queued System Access (SA) button winks, as if the call is on hold. If the user goes
off-hook and presses the button while the call is still queued, the LED lights steadily
and queuing tone is heard again. While waiting for a queued call, the user can place
and receive other calls.
●
Callback
Callback applies only to stations that went on-hook after queuing was activated.
When the queued-for station becomes available to receive a queued call, the system
sends repeated priority ringing to the on-hook calling station. At a multiline set,
callback rings at the same SA button where the call to the queued-for station was
originally placed; the winking status LED of the button changes to flashing. The onhook station continues to get priority ringing until the callback is answered or until
the administered number of callback rings has been reached. When the original
calling station answers the callback, dequeuing tone is heard; this indicates that the
queued-for station will now be rung. The calling user hears ringback until the
queued-for station answers.
An off-hook single-line set cannot receive callback until it is on-hook again. If a
multiline set is off-hook and active on another call when callback arrives, it receives
one cycle of priority ringing.
Administration sets the maximum number of callback attempts and the number of
rings per attempt. Each time a callback attempt for a given call is not answered, it is
counted against the assigned number. If the last allowed callback goes unanswered,
the system cancels the queued call.
If a queued-for station becomes busy during callback and the calling station answers,
queuing tone is heard, not dequeuing; this callback attempt does not count against
the administered number. Another special situation exists when a multiline station
fails to answer a callback before ringing stops and the queued-for station remains
idle during the interval before another attempt. The multiline station can go off-hook
between callback attempts, press the queued button, and ring the idle queued-for
station.
2-82
Callback Queuing
●
Callback Cancellation
The user can cancel a call that was queued manually or automatically. At a multiline
set, if the call is queued off-hook, the user presses the DROP button, then the
queued call button. If the call is queued on-hook, the user must go off-hook, press
the queued call button to become active on the call, press DROP, and then press the
queued call button again.
At a single-line set, the user must get dial tone, then dial the callback cancel access
code #61.
The attendant at a Switched Loop Attendant Console cancels a queued call by
becoming active on the queued call LOOP button and pressing DROP.
Outside Calls
Only trunk pools can be queued for, not individual trunks. Queuing for trunk pools is similar
to queuing for inside stations except for the tones received and the methods of placing calls.
To be eligible for queuing when not using ARS, a trunk pool must have all of its members
administered to be queuable by dial access users. To make an outside call, the user dials
the access code of the pooled facility, then, after second dial tone, the rest of the desired
outside number. The dialing must be terminated by pressing # or by waiting for timeout. If
all trunks are busy, and the calling station is administered for automatic queuing for outside
calls, queuing tone is returned to the caller. (Note that dialing the complete outside number
is required, even if all trunks are busy; this ensures that no redialing is necessary on the
queued call.)
If automatic queuing is not administered, the caller hears reorder tone but can queue the call
by the appropriate manual method. Reorder tone is also returned if the busy trunks are not
administered for dial-access queuing or if all the queue slots are in use. In these cases,
queuing cannot take place.
Callback Reservations
When busy facilities are called, both queue slots and queued-for stations are “reserved”
before they are actually “seized” by the calling stations. Reservation of queue slots applies
only to manual queuing, in which the caller has a choice of activating callback queuing, or
not, after hearing busy tone. It ensures that callers can elect to queue in the same order that
they get busy tone, not in the order that they press RECALL or dial #60. If a caller reserves
or seizes the last available queue slot, new callers will not be able to queue.
Reservation of stations means that the system marks stations busy to new calls until all their
callbacks have been attempted. Even if a SA button (or a single-line set, which is equivalent
to a SA button) is idle, it cannot receive a call while callback attempts remain. However, the
station user can place calls.
2-83
FEATURES AND SERVICES
Considerations
Callback Queuing saves time for users because they can avoid repeated redialing of busy
numbers. It allows trunks to be used more efficiently and can reduce the number of trunks
required for a system.
The feature is similar to the Busy-to-Idle Reminder feature but applies to different types of
calls. The two features can both be used to reduce redialing effort.
A single-line voice terminal can queue only one call at a time.
Calls originated by using Personal Line, Direct Facility Access, and Direct Station Selection
buttons cannot be queued.
On calls to busy facilities, Callback Queuing occurs only after Coverage, Following,
Forwarding, and Hunting have been attempted.
Interactions
The following features interact with Callback Queuing.
Account Code Entry: An account code entered before queuing is saved for SMDR.
Attendant Camp-On: Trunk calls camped onto a station by an attendant are given priority
over queued calls. Multiple camp-on calls are allowed per station.
Attendant Direct Extension Selection: Callbacks to the attendant do not flash at the
associated Selector Console.
Attendant Positions: The attendant can queue calls that are extended using the normal
START-RELEASE button operation. However, calls originated using only the START button
(no other call put on hold) cannot be queued.
Attendant Message Waiting: An attendant active on a queued inside call can toggle the
MESSAGE LED of the queued-for station by pressing the ATTENDANT MESSAGE WAITING
button.
Automatic Route Selection (ARS): Implementation of Callback Queuing affects ARS in three
respects:
●
On-hook ARS queuing is allowed.
●
Callback Queuing and ARS share a common queue, which has a capacity of 64 calls.
●
2-84
When a station without automatic queuing originates an ARS call, the caller hears
reorder tone if all routes are busy; the call can then be queued manually.
Callback Queuing
Bridging of System Access Buttons: Calls originated on Bridged Access (BA) buttons can
be queued. On callback attempts, only the originator will be rung; all other appearances will
only flash. Any appearance in the bridging arrangement can be used to drop a queued call,
if no other station is off-hook.
If both principal and bridging users are off-hook on a call to a busy facility, only the first one
off-hook can queue the call.
Call Accountability: Any call accountability information entered before activation of queuing
is saved for SMDR.
Call Waiting: If a station with automatic queuing calls a busy station with Call Waiting, the
calling station hears queuing tone, not special ringback; also, the called party does not hear
Call Waiting tone. Call Waiting tone is heard only when special ringback is returned to the
caller. A station without automatic queuing gets special ringback but can manually queue the
call.
If the queued-for station dials the Call Waiting pickup code ✶ 9, the first off-hook queued or
waiting call will be dequeued.
Conference: A queued call can be part of a conference, unless a Call Waiting call is already
part of the conference. A queued call counts as two conferees until it is completed.
Coverage: Callback calls to the originator do not send ring signals to its coverage stations.
If a call is queued for a station, then one of the coverage stations becomes available, the call
remains queued for the originally-dialed station.
Data/Pooled Modem: Calls to busy data ports can be queued. Data ports cannot queue
calls or receive call waiting treatment. A call requiring a pooled modem cannot queue.
Direct Group Calling (DGC): Inside calls to busy DGC groups can be queued. Queuing is
not allowed if all members of the DGC group are logged out. A multiline DGC member with a
queued call and a single-line member with an off-hook queued call are considered busy.
Display: Before Callback Queuing is invoked, the display shows the standard format for
origination of an inside or outside call. When Callback Queuing goes into effect for the call,
the display updates to CALL QUEUED. If the user cancels queuing, the display is QUEUE
CANCELED. If the queuing attempt is denied, QUEUE DENIED appears.
When a station receives callback, indicating that the called facility is now available, the
display shows the same information seen before queuing, except that queue descriptor Q
appears in position 1, displacing the number and name fields to the right. Once the user
answers the callback, the display updates to standard origination format; Q is removed.
If a user with Automatic Incoming Call ID is off-hook when a callback attempt is made, the
display will not flash the callback call’s information. However, this information is accessible
via the Inspection feature.
Drop Button: If the user is off-hook on the queued call button, pressing the DROP button
and then the queued call button cancels the call.
2-85
FEATURES AND SERVICES
Exclusion: pressing the EXCLUSlON button does not drop a queued call. The EXCLUSION
button’s status LED tracks the status LED of the associated button. For example, on a
callback attempt, the EXCLUSION LED will also change from winking to flashing. If the
EXCLUSION button is tracking a conference on hold, it will stay winking with the rest of the
conference. When the callback attempt is answered. the EXCLUSION LED lights steadily to
track all the conference buttons.
Following/Forwarding: Calls that forward or follow are queued on the busy “away” station.
not the “home” station.
Callback attempts to the originator do not follow or forward.
Hands-Free Answer on Intercom (HFAI): Callback calls to the originator do not receive HFAI
treatment.
Hunting: If all stations of a hunt group are busy, the call queues only for the dialed station in
the group.
Leave Word Calling: A user who is queued for access to a busy station can invoke Leave
Word Calling (LWC). The callback request is canceled when LWC is activated.
Park: Queued calls cannot be parked unless they are part of a conference. Reorder tone is
returned whenever an illegal park is attempted, but the queued call is not disconnected. If
parked conference members drop out, Ieaving only a queued call, it will be disconnected to
prevent the illegal condition of a single queued call being parked.
Pickup: A callback call cannot be picked up.
Recall/Centrex: The RECALL button can still be used to send switchhook flash to Centrex
trunks. If a conference exists with a queuable tone and a Centrex trunk, the first push of
RECALL queues a call. A second push of RECALL is needed to send switchhook flash.
Selector Console: Callbacks to the attendant do not flash on the Selector Console.
Send All Calls: Callback attempts to the originator are not affected by Send All Calls.
Transfer: Queued calls can be transferred. Single-line sets can transfer queued calls only
before going on-hook. The transferring station must wait for the transferred-to facility to
answer before completing the transfer; the transferred-to facility then receives queuing tone.
Queued calls cannot be transferred to a tone (ringing, busy, etc.).

Features and Services
Calling Restrictions
Description
Designated voice and data terminals can be restricted from making certain types of calls. Available
restrictions are:
●
Outward Restriction
●
Toll Restriction
●
Facility Access Restriction
●
ARS Restrictions
●
Public Station Restrictions
●
International Restrictions.
●
Interexchange Carrier (IXC) Restrictions
Note: Each of these restrictions is voice terminal oriented, not PDC oriented.
Outward Restriction:
When outward restricted, a station will be unable to place any outside calls. The station will be able
to answer incoming calls and place and receive inside calls. A station that is outward restricted will
be unable to use Automatic Route Selection to place external calls except to the emergency
numbers.
Toll Restriction:
Allows calls by restricted terminals to be made based on as many as the first six digits of the
number called (after the facility access code). Toll restricted stations can make outgoing calls only
to those numbers that are on the Toll Call Allowed (TCA) Lists to which they have access. TCA
entries must be in the form AAA or NAA-XXX (exactly three or six characters). The system
administrator can establish up to 5 individual lists. A list can contain from 1 to 164 entries, provided
that the total of all five lists does not exceed 164. One character “.” can be specified as a wild card
character in place of the last 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 digits (e.g., “NA.”, “N..”, “N.....”, etc.). When this
character is used, any digit in the dialed number appearing in that position is acceptable. Those
stations assigned Toll Restriction Class 1 have access to all five TCA Lists; Class 2 stations, just
lists 2 through 5; Class 3 stations, just list 3 through 5; Class 4 stations, just list 4 through 5; and
Class 5 stations, just list 5. To allow calls within a customer’s local area, individual office codes are
entered; this allows the customer to restrict toll calls within the local calling area. NAA-AAA entries
allow specific office codes to be called within an area. Note: NAA-only entries are not permitted
(use NAA-...).
Note that stations that are toll restricted are only toll restricted on CO trunks (type 701 and 801),
when they use the ARS feature, or when a PBX/Centrex trunk and the PBX/Centrex access digit is
dialed. They will not be toll restricted when they dial access (or button access) any other type of
trunk (e.g., FX, WATS, or Tie trunks).
2-88
November 1995
Calling Restrictions
Equal Access:
Allows equal access to all Interexchange Carriers (IXC) when a station is administered for IXC+1
and/or IXC+011 dialing. Toll restriction checking occurs when an IXC code+1 or IXC code+01 is
dialed. IXC code+0, IXC code+011, and 0+ calls are allowed from toll restricted stations that have
outward calling capability and select a type 701 and 801 trunk administered with “Originating Line
Screening” either via pool access or personal line appearance. This service is provided by the Local
Exchange Carrier (LEC) identifying the call as one which should not have the operator bill the
originating facility.
International Restriction:
International dial codes entered in the Toll Allowed List are treated as DISALLOWED entries rather
than ALLOWED entries. The international entries have the form “0ABCDE” (6 digits always with a
leading zero), where ABCDE can be any digit ranging from 0-9 or “.”, which is a wild card. If 0 + 5
dots are entered in a Toll Disallowed List, the station(s) assigned to that class cannot make
international calls. If a station is in Class 1, only Class 1 entries will block a call; if a station is in
Class 2, Class 1 and 2 entries will block; if in Class 3, Class 1, 2, and 3 will block; etc.
November 1995
2-88a
Calling Restrictions
Facility Access Restriction:
Any station may be denied dial access to the local CO and/or to all other pooled facilities (as a
group). A station so restricted may only dial access those facilities via the Automatic Route
Selection (ARS) feature.
In addition, each trunk and Virtual Facility can be administered to allow or restrict dial access. If dial
access is restricted, the trunk or Virtual Facility may only be dial accessed via ARS.
ARS Restriction:
Special restrictions on each station may be imposed when the call is routed by the ARS feature.
Facility Restriction Levels (FRLs) are used to restrict access to trunk groups. A FRL is a single digit
(0, 1, 2, 3). A terminal assigned a FRL of 0 has the least privileges, a terminal assigned a FRL of 3,
the most. A FRL is also assigned to each route in each ARS routing pattern. The terminal’s FRL
must be equal to or greater than the route’s FRL in order to use that facility.
Considerations
Restrictions are used whenever it is necessary to restrict certain users from accessing designated
facilities. A typical application is to deny most stations dial access to all trunk groups. This forces
callers to use the ARS feature, which should result in reduced toll charges.
Interactions
The following features interact with Calling Restrictions:
Automatic Route Selection: The use of the ARS feature will not allow users to avoid restrictions.
Outward Restriction and Toll Restriction, when administered, can prevent calls originating at
associated voice terminals from routing via ARS. Facility access restrictions, however, are
circumvented.
Bridging of System Access Buttons: If a station goes off-hook on a Bridged Access (BA) button
and dials a number, the call is completed according to the bridging station’s restrictions and
characteristics, not those of the principal station’s.
Two bridging stations or a bridging station and its principal station can attempt to originate a call on
their corresponding System Access (SA) and BA buttons at the same time. This call is completed
according to the calling restrictions of the station that went off-hook first.
Callback Queuing: Restrictions in effect at the time a call is originated also apply to the retry
attempt.
Forwarding: When Forwarding to an outside station is initiated, the system will ensure that the
forwarding does not violate any calling restrictions applied to the forwarding station.
November 1995
2-89
Features and Services
Pooled Facility—Direct Access: Toll restricted stations receive their class of service toll
restrictions whet her a Direct Facility Access (FACILITY) button or a facility access code is used.
Personal Lines: Personal Lines are subject to the toll restriction options of the stations on which
they appear.
Remote Access: A barrier code class of restriction (COR) has the same parameters as the class of
service permissions associated with stations. A system-wide default COR must be administered for
use if barrier codes are disabled. Barrier code CORs override the default COR.
Repertory Dialing: A user cannot use Repertory Dialing to access a number that he/she is
restricted from dialing.
Speed Dialing: A user cannot use Speed Dialing to access a number that he/she is restricted from
dialing.
Transfer: A non-restricted user (typically the attendant) can transfer a CO trunk to an outwardrestricted or toll-restricted Class 1-4 station, giving the station outward service. The toll restriction
class of the transferring station will apply for calls placed over a transferred trunk. Class 5 stations
known as “Public Stations” cannot receive a transferred trunk with dial tone from a station with lower
class of toll restrictions. It keeps its Class 5 restriction. However, if one or more digits were dialed
before the transfer by the transferring station, the call can be completed by the Class 5 station. The
transferring station appears as the station of record in the SMDR.

Call Management System (CMS)
Call Management System (CMS)
Description
The Call Management System (CMS) is an automatic call distributor that directs specified
incoming calls to assigned “agents” for handling. It also provides reports of CMS call traffic
and agent performance. The CMS has options and parameters that allow the system to be
tailored to the individual needs of specific businesses. The CMS consists of software, a
personal computer (PC) with a CMS interface card, voice announcement units (VAUs), and a
printer.
In a System 25 with CMS, some incoming trunks are assigned as CMS trunks (lines). The
CMS lines are organized into line groups according to the types of calls that are expected to
be received. One line group, for example, might carry calls made to a service department
number, while another group might be assigned to a sales department.
CMS agents are organized into teams called “splits.” Members of a particular split generally
answer one type of call. Each agent split is assigned to answer calls for one or more line
groups. Each line group must be assigned a main split and may also be assigned a
secondary split (for high traffic period backup). Routing of calls to the secondary split is
called “intraflow.”
System 25 provides a new button feature, Agent Status for CMS, that is composed of four
button sub-types. One sub-type will be used for the CMS PC. The remaining three are used
on CMS agent stations to signal the following operational states:
●
Logged Out—CMS station not available to receive CMS calls; this is the state an
agent enters, by pressing the LOGGED OUT button, when going off duty.
●
Available—Ready to receive CMS calls; entered by pressing the AVAILABLE button.
●
After-Call-Work (ACW)—Entered by pressing the ACW button so that the agent can
complete work on the latest call and not be interrupted by new CMS calls.
CMS has two modes, Night Service (distinct from System 25 Night Service) and Day Service.
When Night Service is active, CMS routes calls to a VAU and disconnects them after the
message is finished. When the system is in Day Service, a typical call receives the following
treatment:
●
CMS looks for an available agent in the main split assigned to the line group.
●
If agents are available, the call goes to the agent who has been idle the longest.
●
If no agent is available, CMS connects the call to a VAU for a delay message. If an
agent becomes available while the message is playing, the call goes immediately to
the agent.
●
If the “forced delay” option is on during Day Service, each call is connected to a
VAU and played the entire message before being connected to an agent, even if an
agent is available.
2-91
FEATURES AND SERVICES
●
If no agent has become available by the end of the delay message, CMS puts the call
into the main split’s queue of waiting calls. If available on the System 25, Music-onHold will be heard by these callers while they wait.
●
As soon as an agent in the main split becomes available, CMS will transfer the call at
the front of the queue to the agent.
●
If no agent in the main split becomes available, and the call at the front of the queue
has waited for a predetermined period, the call will be sent to an available agent in
the secondary split (if intraflow has been turned on and the secondary split has been
administered).
CMS provides a variety of reports that are available on a daily or cumulative (up to 3 months)
basis. The Events Log records up to 200 system events and exception conditions. In
addition, call traffic reports can be generated for the following:
●
Individual Agents (by day or days)
●
Splits (by hour or day)
●
Line Groups (by hour or day)
●
Line Sub-Groups (by hour or day).
CMS Support Features
Three additional features enhance the capability of CMS operations.
●
Transfer-Into-Queue
Allows anyone on System 25, particularly an attendant, to transfer calls into a line
group. It also allows an agent to transfer a call to another line group. It is useful in
handling calls made to the wrong line group. Calls transferred in this way receive
priority treatment in the new line group.
●
Service Monitoring
Enables a CMS supervisor to monitor an agent’s calls (without the knowledge of
agent or caller) or to join a call when an agent requests help. Service monitoring is
useful in the training of agents. The supervisor’s terminal requires a Personal Line
button for each CMS line to be monitored.
●
Assist
Allows an agent to send a visual (LED) signal to the CMS supervisor to request
assistance. The existing System 25 Station-to-Station Message Waiting feature is
used for this purpose. An MSG WAIT button/status LED is required at both terminals
in each agent-to-supervisor link.
2-92
Call Management System (CMS)
Considerations
CMS is useful for businesses where particular groups or departments receive special types
of calls in high volumes. Members of such groups can be assigned to splits. Call
completion time is minimized; with calls going directly to a split, attendant assistance is not
required.
CMS has the following maximum capacities:
●
28 lines
●
4 line groups
●
28 lines in one group
●
28 agent positions
●
28 agents in one split.
The CMS supervisor can reassign agents to splits and splits to line groups without
interrupting service.

FEATURES AND SERVICES
Call Progress Tones
Call Progress tones provide audible feedback on the status of calls during call setup. These
tones are heard through the handset or the headset or the speaker, if Speakerphone or HFAI
is activated.
●
Busy Tone: A slow pulsed tone indicating that all facilities for answering the call are
in use.
●
Call Waiting/Camp-On Tone: A single or double burst of tone sent to a busy terminal
to notify the user that a call is waiting. A single tone indicates an inside call; a
double tone indicates an outside (trunk) call.
●
Call Waiting Ringback Tone (Special Ringback Tone): Standard ringback with a short
lower-pitched tone added at the end; indicates to the calling party that the called
party is busy but has been given Call Waiting tone. Call Waiting ringback is repeated
until the call is answered.
●
Confirmation Tone: Three short tones indicating that the system has accepted the
instruction entered.
●
Dequeuing Tone: Three short tones indicating that the called facility is now available
and that the call is being completed.
●
Dial Tone: A steady tone indicating that dialing or feature activation can begin.
●
Dialing Feedback: Indicates that a digit has been dialed.
●
Queuing Tone: Five short tones. Indicates that no facility is currently available to
place the call, but that the call has been put into a callback queue and will be
completed as soon as a facility becomes available.
●
Reorder Tone: A fast pulsed tone indicating that all trunks are busy, that a dialing
error has occurred, that the terminal is restricted from making this call, or that an
account code is required but has not been entered.
●
Ringback Tone, Normal: The tone heard by the calling party indicating that the called
station is ringing; repeated until the call is answered.
●
Ringback Tone, Special: (see Call Waiting Ringback Tone.)
For additional information, refer to “Tones” in Section 5.
2-94
Call Waiting
Call Waiting
Description
This feature allows a user at a busy voice terminal to be audibly alerted when another party
is calling. A voice terminal is considered busy if all its System Access (SA) buttons are in use
(multiline sets), if it is off-hook (single-line sets), and if all coverage points are busy.
With Call Waiting, the user hears a distinctive call waiting tone from the handset one time;
the caller hears special ringback tone, repeated. Calls from both inside stations and outside
locations (on non-DID trunks) receive call waiting treatment at stations administered for this
feature.
The called party who hears call waiting tone has these options:
●
Ignore the new call and continue with the current call.
●
Terminate the current call, hang up, and answer the new call when it rings.
●
Put the current call on hold and answer the new call.
A user at a busy single-line terminal flashes the switchhook to hold the current call. Dialing
✶ 9 then connects the user to the new call.
At a multiline voice terminal with all SA buttons busy, the user can answer a waiting call on
an idle SA-Originate Only or Bridged Access (BA) button. After putting the current call on
hold (with the HOLD button), the user presses the SA-Originate Only or BA button and dials
✶ 9 to be connected.
Call waiting tone consists of one beep (high frequency tone) for an inside call or two beeps
for an outside call. Special ringback consists of normal ringback with a short separate tone
added at the end of each cycle. Special ringback continues until the called party answers.
Considerations
Call Waiting improves the chances of incoming calls to busy terminals being answered.
The caller must remain off-hook for a waiting call to be answered.
The Call Waiting feature also applies to calls extended to busy inside stations by attendants
(Camp-On). A busy extended-to party receives call waiting tone, and the caller receives
special ringback. The call returns to the console after a predefined interval if it is not
answered.
2-95
FEATURES AND SERVICES
Interactions
The following features interact with Call Waiting.
Attendant Camp-On: Trunk calls camped onto a station by an attendant are given priority
over other waiting calls.
Attendant Positions: Calls cannot wait at Direct Trunk Attendant Consoles and Switched
Loop Attendant Consoles.
Callback Queuing: If a station with automatic queuing calls a busy station with Call Waiting,
the calling station hears queuing tone, not special ringback; furthermore, the called party
does not hear Call Waiting tone. Call Waiting tone is heard only when special ringback is
returned to the caller. A station without automatic queuing gets special ringback but can
manually queue the call.
If the queued-for station dials the Call Waiting pickup code ✶ 9, the first off-hook queued or
waiting call will be dequeued.
Conference: A call receiving special ringback can be part of a conference, unless a queued
call is already part of the conference. A waiting call counts as two conferees until it is
completed.
Data Stations: Data ports cannot be assigned Call Waiting.
Direct Inward Dialing (DID) Trunks: Incoming DID trunk calls do not wait at busy stations;
they receive busy tone.
Display: If a display station has Automatic Incoming Call Identification active, call waiting
tone is accompanied by an incoming call message flashed on the screen. The user cannot
inspect the message again, because all buttons are busy with other calls. When the user
answers a waiting call, the display updates to standard incoming call format.
Send All Calls: A busy station with Send All Calls activated will receive call waiting tones; the
caller will hear special ringback. If the busy station then goes on-hook, single-ring reminder
will not be given for that waiting call.
Station Hunting: If all members of a hunt group are busy and the originally-dialed station has
Call Waiting, the caller hears special ringback until the station becomes available to answer
the call.
Administration Requirements
Call Waiting is assigned on a per-station basis (yes or no; default = no).

Command Mode
Command Mode
This feature allows data terminal users to originate data and voice calls and change (or view)
their data port options.
(Refer also to the general description of the system’s data features in “Data Services
Overview”).
Command Mode supports digital data endpoints connected via Asynchronous Data Units
(ADUs) to ports on a Data Line CP (TN726). Command Mode also supports, with certain
restrictions, users of the STARLAN Interface Circuit Pack, ZTN84.
Command Mode is invoked from a data terminal in the idle (on-hook) mode by:
Terminal Optioned For Autobaud
Terminal Not Optioned For Autobaud
Enter Break followed by Return
Enter Break
The terminal then displays the Command Mode menu:
<Data call>
<Voice call>
<Options>
<Hangup>
Menu items are chosen either by positioning the cursor under the desired item (by typing
“space” characters) and entering a Return, or by typing the upper-case character in the
menu field (e.g., type “D” to choose data terminal dialing or “O” to move to the options
sub-menu). Once a user has entered Command Mode, the terminal is considered off-hook
and busy to incoming calls until it returns to the idle mode.
<Data call> or <place Data call>:
Refer to the “Data Terminal Dialing” feature description for information on how to dial from
your terminal. Once a data call has been set up, either the “Disconnect/Recall Sequence”
(see the Permissible Options, Table 2-G) must be sent or <Hangup> selected from the above
menu to terminate the data call and return to idle mode. If a data call is not answered, the
caller must disconnect by sending a Break.
2-97
FEATURES AND SERVICES
<Voice call>:
The data terminal user can originate a call for an on-premises source voice or data terminal
to a remote terminal by selecting <Voice call> and dialing the required digits. Refer to the
“Third-party Call Setup” feature description for a complete description of this feature.
<Options>:
If the Command Mode menu item <Options> is chosen, the terminal displays the data port’s
administered options. System default values for each option are also shown. The display
shown below is similar to what is actually presented on the screen. (See Tables 2-G and 2H) for additional information on options.)

Communications Access Manager (CAM)
Communications Access Manager (CAM)
The Communications Access Manager (CAM) program facilitates communication between
workstations on the AT&T STARLAN NETWORK (STARLAN NETWORK) and workstations on
System 25.
Since CAM has a built-in interface to System 25’s Command Mode, it is an ideal
communications application for PCs connected to System 25. Detailed procedures for using
CAM can be found in the CAM User Guide. The material here provides a brief overview of
CAM capabilities.
CAM is a MS-DOS application program that provides an enhanced calling interface and
terminal emulation for PCs. CAM, combined with System 25’s Third-Party Call Setup feature,
provides the capabilities of an integrated voice /data workstation, specifically:
●
A 200-entry directory for automatic dialing of voice and data calls
●
VT100 terminal emulation with:
— file transfer with error checking
— unattended remote access operation with mail
●
On-line HELP that is accessible from almost anywhere within the program.
CAM runs on the AT&T PC6300 or compatible PC with at least 384K bytes of memory,
running MS-DOS Version 2.0 or later (when connected to System 25) or MS-DOS Version 3.1
or later (when connected to the STARLAN NETWORK).
The PC running CAM can be connected to System 25 in one of two ways (Figure 2-13):
1. By the PC’s RS-232 COM port to the System 25 via an ADU/DLC connection
2. As a STARLAN NETWORK workstation to the System 25 via the STARLAN Interface
CP.
CAM interfaces with System 25’s Command Mode to provide call control. The Third-Party
Call Setup feature provides voice call origination.
The STARLAN NETWORK communication driver (NAUCOM) is used before CAM is run on a
STARLAN NETWORK workstation. The Extended Device driver (CAM232) is used when
CAM is run on a PC connected to a System 25 DLC port.
The default screen presented when the user accesses CAM is the phone directory screen.
The phone screen is divided into five partitions:
●
Call Appearance area—provides call appearance for voice lines and data lines for
each extension shown. A call timer for each line is also displayed.
●
Feature Selection area—allows the user to select the voice or data line to be used,
initiate the call, and start the timer by function keys. Additional function keys may be
assigned to Repertory Dialing numbers.

Conference
Conference
Description
This feature allows up to five parties, including the conference originator, to participate in a
conference call. Any voice terminal user (the ATL cordless telephone user cannot participate
in a conference call), including operators at Direct Trunk Attendant Consoles and Switched
Loop Attendant Consoles, can set up conferences. Refer to the description of “Conference
Drop” for additional information on conferencing.
Multiline Voice Terminals:
Multiline voice terminal users can add another (external or internal) party to an existing call
by pressing the CONFERENCE button. This places the first party on Special Hold (indicated
by a broken flutter on the line appearance button) and the system selects an idle SYSTEM
ACCESS or LOOP (Switched Loop Console) button and provides system dial tone. The user
may dial the desired number or select another facility to dial the party to be conferenced-in.
Subsequently, pressing the held line button completes the conference. If the facility to be
added is busy, the conference will be denied.
Users can conference up to two outside facilities (trunks), and up to five parties in all. Any
attempt to add a sixth party will be denied, and the sixth party will be dropped. This limit is
for the conference as a whole. Other conference inside stations are also prohibited from
adding a third outside party or sixth party.
Single-Line Voice Terminals:
The single-line voice terminal user can establish a conference by momentarily pressing the
switchhook, which puts the first party on hold, receiving Recall Dial Tone, and then dialing a
second party. After connection to the second party, another press of the switchhook
establishes the conference. A third press of the switchhook will drop the second party,
restoring the original call. The user cannot put a conference that he/she has established on
hold. Other internal conferees (multiline or single-line) may then add additional parties to the
conference up to the five party/two outside line maximum.
Considerations
The Conference feature allows any voice terminal user to set up conference calls. Nonattendant users do not need the assistance of the attendant.
Waiting for an added party to answer and announcing the purpose of the call before adding
the party to the conference is good operating practice.
A ringing line can be added to a conference and counts as one of the conferees. A queued
or Call Waiting call can be added to a conference and counts as two conferees until it is
completed; when completed it counts as one conferee.
2-103
FEATURES AND SERVICES
Interactions
The following features interact with Conference.
Account Code Entry, Forced (FACE): Calls can be conference in both directions between a
FACE-restricted station and a non-FACE station.
Account Code Entry, Optional: If more than one user attempts to associate an account code
with a Conference Call, the first to activate the feature will prevail.
Attendant Message Waiting: Pressing the Attendant Message Waiting (ATT MSG) button
while on a conference call will be ignored.
Bridging of System Access Buttons: A station user can make conference calls on Bridged
Access (BA) buttons using the normal conference feature operations. When a call is held for
conference by pressing the CONFERENCE button, an idle System Access (SA) button or an
idle SA-Originate Only button, if available, is automatically selected by the system for placing
the new call. If neither of these button types is idle, the user can manually select a BA
button or any other call appearance button on which to place the new call.
While a bridging station or principal is in the process of setting up a conference call, the
green status LED of the held call’s BA button or SA button has a broken flutter indication.
Other bridging or principal stations that are actively bridged to the call have steadily lighted
green status LEDs; stations that are not active on the call have winking status LEDs
(indicating that the appearance is on hold).
Callback Queuing: A queued call can be part of a conference, unless a Call Waiting call is
already part of the conference. A queued call counts as two conferees until it is completed.
Call Waiting: A call receiving special ringback can be part of a conference, unless a queued
call is already part of the conference. A waiting call counts as two conferees until it is
completed.
Display: Call descriptor “ ” appears in position 15 of Screen 1 for a call containing more
than two active parties; position 16 contains the actual number of conferees. The number of
conferees is displayed at each terminal in a conference call and is updated as the status
changes.
Screen 1
3 2 4 T a n g o , S^ 4
The “ ^ ” and the number of conferees overwrite whatever was in positions 15 and 16 of the
current display.
When a queued call is added to a conference, the associated displays are modified in only
one respect: the Q symbol appears as the first character of the queued call display. When
the queued facility becomes available and the call is made, “Q” is removed.
When a nondisplay station originates a trunk call, then conferences the call with an inside
display station and drops off, the display shows the trunk name only, not the originally-dialed
digits.
2-104
Conference
Exclusion: Exclusion may be invoked before establishing a conference. If it is invoked after the
conference is established, all internal conferees will be dropped (except for the party that invoked
Exclusion).
Extended Stations: An Extended Station counts as one of the two allowable outside lines on a
conference call.
Forwarding: If one of the called parties for a conference is a forwarding station, its forwarded-to
station will be the conference facility.
If a conference call is transferred to a forwarding station, it will be given normal Forwarding
treatment.
Music-On-Hold: Music-On-Hold may be enabled or disabled for “Special Hold” through a System
Administration item. However, if the outside line is already part of a conference, music is not heard.
Off-Premises Stations (OPS): For conference purposes, an OPS counts as one of the two
allowable outside lines.
Paging System Access: A paging zone may not be conferenced.
Park: Park may be used to place a conference on hold. Parked conference calls do not return to the
parking station (they remain parked).
If a 5-person conference is parked, the conferee who parked the conference will be dropped when
someone picks up the parked conference.
Remote Access: Remote Access callers cannot use the Conference feature.
Trunk-To-Trunk Transfer: Trunk-to-trunk transfers may be set up using the Conference feature.
The conference must include an incoming trunk call on either a ground start, loop start (if trunk-totrunk transfer is allowed by System Administration), DID, or tie trunk if it is to continue after all inside
stations have dropped off.
Public Station: If a PUBLIC Station, a toll class 5 station, creates a conference, the Class 5
restriction level of this station applies. If a non-PUBLIC station creates a conference call with a trunk
in the call and drops off before dialing the outside number, the restriction level will become 5 if the
only remaining station(s) is a PUBLIC station. This also applies for bridging of System Access and
Personal Line Buttons.

Features and Services
Conference Drop
Description
This feature allows a voice terminal user, except for the attendant at a Switched Loop Attendant
Console (SLAC), to selectively drop a previously added party from a conference call. At a SLAC, the
attendant can drop conferees only before they have been added to conference.
Multiline Voice Terminals (except SLAC):
On a multiline voice terminal, pressing the DROP button and then pressing the button appearance
of a conference party drops that party from the conference.
If a station called for a conference does not answer, the conferencing user should drop the call by
pressing and releasing the switchhook before returning to the conference. Otherwise, the ringing line
will be added to the conference.
Switched Loop Attendant Consoles:
Once a conference has been set up and all the parties can talk to each other, the SLAC attendant
cannot selectively drop a conferee. Individual members of the conference wishing to drop out must
hang up. However, while still setting up a conference, the attendant can drop calls before they have
been conferenced in, as follows:
●
A call to an inside party rings unanswered or returns busy tone—hang up.
●
●
A call to an outside party rings unanswered or returns busy tone—press another LOOP
button or RELEASE or FORCED RELEASE.
A call to an inside or outside party is completed but the person cannot participate—press
another LOOP button or RELEASE or FORCED RELEASE.
It is good operating practice to wait for the called party to answer before adding the party to a
conference.
All Multiline Terminals:
If all System 25 stations hang up on a conference with two outside lines, the outside parties will
remain conference (until one of them hangs up) if at least one is an inbound call on a ground start,
tie, or DID trunk or an inbound call on a loop start trunk if loop start trunk-to-trunk transfer is allowed
by System Administration. If not, the call will be terminated when the last inside user disconnects
from the conference.
Single-Line Voice Terminals:
A single-line terminal user, after having established a three-party conference, can drop the second
party and retain the first party by pressing the switchhook.

Conference Drop
Considerations
Conference Drop allows users to conference lines appearing on their terminals and then
remove them from the conference when appropriate.
The only parties that a user should try to drop from a conference are those that the user
actually added. If a user tries to drop a party who previously added the user to a
conference, other parties may also be dropped.
Interactions
The following feature Interacts with Conference Drop.
Callback Queuing: If the user is off-hook on the queued call button, pressing the DROP
button and then the queued call button cancels the queued call.

FEATURES AND SERVICES
Coverage, Group
Description
This feature allows calls to covered stations to be redirected to a group of covering stations.
A total of 32 standard Coverage Groups may be assigned; an additional 32 “DGC” Coverage
Groups may be assigned. Each standard group may be covered by up to eight coverage
receivers (buttons). There is no limit on the number of covered users (senders) that each
Coverage Group can include, but a covered user can be assigned to only one Coverage
Group. Each coverage receiver must have a multiline set equipped with a Cover (COVERGRP) button, except as noted below. A covering set may be assigned more than one
COVER-GRP button for the same or different groups.
In systems equipped with a Switched Loop Attendant Consoles (SLAC), the console queue
can serve as a standard coverage group receiver. The consoles cannot have COVER-GRP
buttons, so the queue directs coverage calls to LOOP buttons.
Direct Group Calling (DGC) Groups may be designated as Coverage Group receivers. This
provides the capability for System 25 to support “non-integrated” voice mail systems as well
as allow the formation of coverage pools.
Senders may be either single-line or multiline voice terminals. Receivers may be single-line
voice terminals only if part of a DGC Coverage Group. Multiline voice terminals may always
be used as receivers
Standard Group Coverage
When a call arrives at a voice terminal that has group coverage, the COVER-GRP or LOOP
button status LED at the covering voice terminals will flash. Covering voice terminals will
begin to ring after a specified number of rings at idle covered voice terminals. If there is no
idle system access button at the covered station (sender), the call receives coverage
treatment, and the call immediately rings at the covering terminal. If no idle cover button is
available at the covering terminal(s), the calling party receives a busy signal.
Ringing may be turned off at standard receiver stations for each covering button, as desired
(not recommended). If this option is selected, a flashing status LED will be the only
indication received at the covering station. In addition, Coverage ringing may be turned off
on internal calls (if desired) on a system-wide basis.
A member of a standard receiver group can use the Line Selection (Preselection) feature to
answer covered calls even before any audible alerting has begun at the covering user’s
terminal. This is useful if the user knows that the covered party is unavailable.
A covered voice terminal may elect to have calls covered while it is busy on another call.
Calls directed to an idle button on a busy covered multiline voice terminal will start ringing at
the covering terminal after a single burst of ringing at the busy covered voice terminal. If
there is no idle Cover button on the covering voice terminal, the system will periodically
check for an idle Cover button and ring at the first available coverage receiver. Calls
directed to a busy single-line voice terminal will start ringing immediately at the covering
2-108
Coverage, Group
terminal. If there is no idle Cover button on any covering terminal, either individual or group,
the call will not receive coverage and the calling party will receive Busy Tone.
Calls sent to coverage will continue to ring at single-line sender terminals but will cease
ringing at multiline sender terminals. In the latter case, the calls will remain on the incoming
call appearance button, and that button’s status LED continues to reflect the status of the
call. In particular, covered calls to multiline sets remain available and can be entered by the
called (sender) station.
If a covered station activates the Send All Calls feature, calls will be directed to coverage
immediately, with or without a single-ring reminder, as administered.
A station can provide (or receive) Individual Coverage (see Coverage, Individual) and also be
a member of a Coverage Group (sender or receiver). Unanswered calls to a station,
provided both Individual and Group Coverage, will first ring at the Individual Coverage station
and then, after a second delay cycle and still unanswered, will ring at the Group Coverage
station.
Calls from a covering station to a covered station will not be covered unless the covered
station has additional coverage. This is an important consideration when the attendant
provides coverage.
DGC Group Coverage
Calls proceeding to the DGC Coverage Receiver Group hunt in a circular fashion for the first
idle station, starting from the last station to receive a call. If all DGC members are busy,
both internal and external calls continue to ring and/or flash at the covered station and any
individual coverage receiver’s station(s) until a DGC station becomes idle. If a DGC group is
used for both DGC calls and group coverage, trunk calls into a DGC group have priority over
coverage calls. Calls sent by coverage to a DGC Coverage Group member station do not
receive additional coverage.
DGC groups cannot be coverage senders to another DGC Coverage Group. However, calls
made directly to a DGC member can be covered by another DGC Coverage Group.
Once a call has been redirected to a DGC Coverage Group member, the call is transferred to
the covering station. The call continues ringing until answered or dropped. The call is not
accessible at the covered station nor any individual coverage receiver once it is redirected to
an idle DGC station. If all DGC members are busy, the call remains accessible at the
covered station until a member is available.
DGC Coverage Groups count against the system specified maximum number of DGC groups,
but not against the number of Coverage Groups. The limit of eight receiving stations per
Coverage Group does not apply when administering a DGC group as a Coverage Group. A
maximum of twenty stations per DGC Coverage Receiver Group is allowed.
2-109
FEATURES AND SERVICES
Considerations
Coverage provides a way to redirect calls to alternate answering positions. The feature is
versatile enough to permit suitable alternate answering arrangements for virtually every level
of employee. Special functions, such as the Send All Calls feature, accommodate the dayto-day variations that occur in an employee’s work schedule.
Interactions (Standard Group Coverage)
The following features interact with Standard Group Coverage.
Attendant Console, Direct Trunk: If the Direct Trunk attendant is a receiver for a Coverage
Group and extends a call (using the Start button or Selector Console) that is
unanswered/busy to a member of the group, the call will return on the Return-On-Don’tAnswer (RTN-DA) or Return-On-Busy (RTN-BUSY) button, not on the attendant’s COVERGRP button.
Automatic Intercom: Auto-Intercom calls do not receive coverage.
Bridging of System Access Buttons: An incoming call is given group coverage according to
the coverage specified for the principal. Calls appearing on Bridged Access buttons are not
extended to the coverage specified for those bridging stations.
Callback Queuing: Callback calls to the originator do not send ring signals to its coverage
stations. If a call is queued for a station, then one of the coverage stations becomes
available, the call remains queued for the originally-dialed station.
Coverage, Individual: Unanswered calls to a station, provided both Individual and Group
Coverage, will first ring at the Individual Coverage station and then, after a second delay
cycle and still unanswered, will ring at the Group Coverage station.
Coverage/Station Hunting: A call to a busy single-line voice terminal that is both a member
of a Station Hunting group and a coverage sender will first hunt for an idle station to service
the call. If none is available, the call will be sent to coverage.
Direct Group Calling (DGC): A call to a
member is also a Coverage sender. Calls
Instead, after a predefined number of
announcement (if provided), or ringing will

Exclusion: If a coverage receiver invokes Exclusion after answering a coverage call, all other
terminals (including the attendant and the covered station) are excluded from the call. The
covered user cannot enter the call until EXCLUSION is pressed a second time by the
covering user.
Forwarding: When a station has both Coverage and Forwarding in effect, calls are routed
first to the forwarded-to station. If not answered there within an administered number of
rings, calls ring at the forwarding and coverage stations and stop ringing at the forwarded-to
station.
2-110
Coverage, Group
When forwarding to an outside number, coverage may only occur in one case: the forwarding
had been activated using a trunk group’s facility access code (not ARS), the forwarding
cannot be completed because the trunk group is busy, and the forwarding station is not
busy. In this case, the call will ring at the forwarding station and its coverage stations.
Hands-Free-Answer On Intercom: An incoming (inside) call will not receive coverage if autoanswer is activated, since the set will answer the call (whether the user is present or not).
Leave Word Calling (LWC): A multiline voice terminal user can activate LWC for the called
party even if the call has gone to coverage.
Night Service: Directed Night Service calls do not receive coverage.
Personal Dial Codes: Calls directed to a station because another non-floating PDC is signed
in there do not receive the coverage treatment of the signed-in station, Such calls return to
their home station and receive that station’s coverage (immediately upon return). Calls to
signed-in floating PDCs, on the other hand, receive the same coverage treatment as any
other calls to the signed-into station. They, of course, have no home station to return to.
Personal Lines: Personal line calls receive the coverage of the principal (owner) station for
that line. Other line appearances (even if administered to ring) will not receive coverage.
Pickup: Pickup is independent of coverage. When a call is answered via Pickup, all Cover
buttons associated with the called party go idle.
Tie Trunks:
treatment.
Tie Trunk calls directed at a user with coverage receive normal coverage
Transfer: When a covering station transfers a covered call to another station, the call will no
longer appear at the covering station’s Cover button or at the covered multiline station.
Interactions (DGC Group Coverage)
The following features interact with DGC Group Coverage.
Attendant Console, Switched Loop: If a SLAC is a member of a DGC Coverage Receiver
Group, any DGC Group Coverage call sent to this attendant will enter the common queue
and be treated as a coverage call, not as an Attendant—DGC call. Thus, the call will be
handled by whichever attendant is administered to receive coverage calls.
Attendant Direct Extension Selector Console: The Selector Console can be used to transfer
and place calls to a DGC Coverage Group provided the DGC group access code appears on
the console. The status LED of the DXS button lights steadily whenever all stations in the
DGC Coverage Group are busy.
Automatic Intercom: Auto Intercom calls do not receive coverage.
Bridging of System Access Buttons: An incoming call is given group coverage according to
the coverage specified for the principal. Calls appearing on Bridged Access buttons are not
extended to the coverage specified for those bridging stations.
2-111
FEATURES AND SERVICES
Callback Queuing: Callback calls to the originator do not send ring signals to its coverage
stations. If a call is queued for a station, then one of the coverage stations becomes
available, the call remains queued for the originally-dialed station.
Direct Station Selection (DSS): A DSS button can be assigned to a DGC Coverage Group.
The button lights whenever all DGC members are busy.
Flex DSS: A Flex DSS button can be assigned to a DGC Coverage Group.
Forwarding: When a station has both DGC Coverage and Forwarding in effect, calls are
routed first to the forwarded-to station. If not answered there within an administered number
of rings, calls ring at the forwarding station and DGC coverage group and stop ringing at the
forwarded-to station. Once the call is directed to a DGC group member, the call appearance
is removed from the forwarding station.
When forwarding to an outside number, coverage may only occur in one case: the forwarding
had been activated using a trunk group’s facility access code (not ARS), the forwarding
cannot be completed because the trunk group is busy, and the forwarding station is not
busy. In this case, the call will ring at the forwarding station and its DGC coverage group.
Once the call is directed to a DGC group member, the call appearance is removed from the
forwarding station.
Leave Word Calling (LWC): A multiline voice terminal user can activate LWC for the called
party even if the call has gone to coverage.
Night Service: Directed Night Service calls do not receive coverage.
Personal Line Access: All outside lines directed to a DGC group can be assigned to button
appearances in addition to the DGC assignment. If the outside lines appear at stations that
also have DGC coverage by the same group, then the operation is as follows:
When an incoming call is ringing in the DGC group, the status LEDs on the appearance
buttons light steadily, indicating that the line is busy. If the call goes unanswered after a
system-specified number of rings, then a delay announcement is provided. The caller is
subsequently put on hold and receives music if available. If the system is not equipped
with a delay announcement, the call begins to ring at all line appearances after the
system-specified number of rings.
If the outside lines are not directed to a DGC group, but are provided DGC Group
Coverage, the feature operation is the same as for incoming calls on SA keys except
that the call appearance remains accessible at the covered station after being directed to
a DGC Coverage Group member.
Pickup: A DGC Coverage Group member can also be in a Pickup group.
Station Hunting: Calls directed to a DGC Coverage Group will not hunt.
Trunk Groups: Trunks can be directly assigned to DGC groups that also act as coverage
group receivers. Among tie trunks, only automatic incoming tie trunks can be translated as
directed to a DGC Group.

Administration Requirements (DGC Group Coverage)
The parameter to assign a coverage sender group has been expanded to include DGC
groups as coverage group receivers. DGC receiver groups are first set up as regular DGC
groups, numbered 1-32. DGC coverage groups can then be specified by using coverage
group numbers 101-132, where coverage group 101 has DGC group 1 as its receiver group,
coverage group 102 has DGC group 2 as its receiver group, etc. No button assignments are
required.
Send ringing options (on busy, on no answer, system-wide for internal calls) have no effect
for DGC group coverage; ringing is sent for all calls that go to coverage.
The system search of group coverage sender stations has been expanded to allow the
system administrator to enter a DGC Coverage Group and list all its sender stations by PDC.
2-113
FEATURES AND SERVICES
Coverage, Individual
Description
This feature is similar to Group Coverage, covered in the preceding feature description. The
primary difference is that Individual Coverage is a one-on-one type coverage between pairs
of stations.
An Individual Coverage (COVER-IND) button can be assigned on multiline voice terminals to
cover calls to a specific (single) voice terminal. The covering station can answer covered
calls by selecting COVER-IND. Each COVER-IND button can be programmed to ring or not
ring. If ringing is selected, the covering station will begin ringing after a specified number of
rings at the covered station. When the specified number of rings has occurred, covered
multiline voice terminals will stop ringing. Covered single-line voice terminals continue to ring
until the call is answered at a covering terminal. When the call is answered at the covering
station, the call remains accessible at the call appearance button of multiline voice terminals,
but is no longer accessible at single-line voice terminals.
Each COVER-IND button at a covering station represents one covered voice terminal. If
more than one voice terminal is to be covered, multiple buttons are required, one for each
station covered. A covering voice terminal may be assigned multiple COVER-IND buttons for
a particular station to cover multiple simultaneous calls to that station. The first button will
track the first call, the second button, the second call, etc.
Up to eight COVER-IND buttons can be assigned for each covered station.
There is no limitation on the number of stations that can receive Individual Coverage.
A voice terminal can receive both Individual Coverage and Group Coverage.
Refer to Messaging Services for a description of Coverage Message Waiting service, which
allows the covering station to control the status of the covered user’s Message LED.
Calls from a covering station to a covered station will not be covered unless the covered
station has additional coverage. This is an important consideration when the attendant
provides coverage.
Considerations
Coverage provides a way to redirect calls to alternate answering positions. The feature is
versatile enough to permit suitable alternate answering arrangements for virtually every level
of employee. Special functions, such as the Send All Calls feature, accommodate the dayto-day variations that occur in an employee’s work schedule.
The Individual Coverage feature is not administrable on the Switched Loop Attendant
Console.
2-114
Coverage, Individual
Interactions
The following features interact with Individual Coverage.
Attendant Console, Direct Trunk: When a coverage call rings at a busy Attendant Console,
the attendant receives a single burst of ringing. If the call is still unanswered when the
attendant hangs up the other call, the Attendant Console will resume ringing.
Bridging of System Access Buttons: An incoming call is given individual coverage according
to the coverage specified for the principal. Calls appearing on Bridged Access buttons are
not extended to the coverage specified for those bridging stations.
Callback Queuing: Callback calls to the originator do not send ring signals to its coverage
station. If a call is queued for a station, then the coverage station becomes available, the call
remains queued for the originally-dialed station.
Coverage, Group: Unanswered calls to a station, provided both Individual and Group
Coverage, will first ring at the Individual Coverage station and then, after a second delay
cycle and still unanswered, will ring at the Group Coverage station.
Direct Station Selection (DSS): Calls placed via a DSS button to a user with Individual
Coverage will receive coverage. When a DSS button is used to activate the busy-to-idle
reminder for the user, the reminder is returned only when the user becomes idle, not when
an associated coverage user becomes idle.
Exclusion: If a covering station answers a coverage call and then invokes Exclusion, all
other reside stations, including the covered one, are excluded from the call.
Forwarding: When a station has both Coverage and Forwarding in effect, calls are routed
first to the forwarded-to station. If not answered there within an administered number of
rings, calls ring at the forwarding and coverage stations and stop ringing at the forwarded-to
station.
When forwarding to an outside number, coverage may only occur in one case: the forwarding
had been activated using a trunk group’s facility access code (not ARS), the forwarding
cannot be completed because the trunk group is busy, and the forwarding station is not
busy. In this case, the call will ring at the forwarding station and its coverage stations.
Hold: May be used by the covering user to place a coverage call on hold. The COVER-IND
button’s status LED winks at the covering station. At the covered station, if the call is on a
Personal Line button, the button’s status LED winks; if the call is on a SA button, the status
LED lights steadily. The held call will automatically leave the coverage terminal if picked up
by the covered user. The covering station will be unable to reenter the call.
Leave Word Calling (LWC): A multiline voice terminal user can activate LWC for the called
party even if the call has gone to coverage.
Transfer: When a covering station transfers a covered call to another station, the call will no
longer appear at the covering station’s Cover button or at the covered multiline station.

DS1 Facility Interface
DS1 Facility Interface
Description
The DS1 facility interface feature provides connectivity between System 25 and a T1 facility.
The DS1 facility is a transmission system to transport digital signals of the DS1 format. The
System 25 forms voice signals using the DS1 format. By using the DS1 format the following
advantages are provided; calls to other digital PBXs or central offices remain digital and
signals don’t need to be converted to analog for acceptance by the connecting tie or tandem
trunk. A T1 trunk can replace up to 24 analog loop-start, ground-start, direct-inward dialing,
tie, and off-premises station trunks and associated System 25 circuit packs. One T1 trunk
can transport a 1.544-Mbps signal consisting of twenty-four 64 kbps channels.
DS1 Format
The term DS1 format stands for Digital Signal 1. Twenty-four Digital Signal 0 signals, each
operating at 64 kbps plus framing bits, are multiplexed forming a DS1 signal of 1.544 Mbps.
Each DS0 channel within the DS1 signal corresponds to a port or a trunk.
Framing Formats
To identify each DS0 channel within the DS1 signal, the DS0 channels are segmented into
blocks of 193 bits (known as a frame). A frame consists of twenty-four 8-bit plus one
framing bit which is inserted at the beginning of each frame. A framing bit appears every
193rd bit of the DS1 signal. Frames repeat at a rate of 8000 per second. Each frame repeats
DS0 channels 1 through 24 of the DS1 signal sequentially.
Two framing formats exist, D4 and Extended Super Frame (ESF). System 25 accepts either,
and the selection must match the framing format at the far end.
A D4 frame consists of 24 eight-bit time slots and one framing bit that alternates between a
one and a zero every other frame. The receiver uses the framing information for
synchronizing to the start of each frame and to identify which frames contain signaling
information (see Robbed-bit signaling). The framing information repeats once every 12
frames, defining the D4 superframe. The advantage of this framing format is that it is
universally used by all DS1 equipment.
The ESF framing format extends the 12 frame superframe of D4 to a 24 frame extended
superframe, making significantly different use of the framing information. The ESF framing
format consists of a 24-bit pattern, with 6 of the bits used to synchronize to the start of each
frame and signaling frame. Six of the remaining 18 bits consist of an error detection code
known as a Cyclic Redundancy Check (sum) over the superframe. The remaining 12 bits are
used as a facility data link signal providing maintenance and facility supervision. The
advantage of ESF framing format is that it is able to detect more errors than D4 framing
format. However ESF is not universally used by DS1 equipment.
A Red alarm occurs when frame synchronization on the DS1 interface is lost.
2-117
FEATURES AND SERVICES
Signaling Types
Signaling types refers to signaling used by DS1 on the T1 facility. Two signaling types can be
used in System 25, Robbed-bit and Common Channel.
Robbed-bit signaling (RBS) robs or replaces the least significant bit (of each DS0 channel’s
8-bit word in every 6th frame) with that channel’s signaling information. For D4 frame format,
that means the 6th and 12th frame carry RBS. For ESF frame format, this means the 6th,
12th, 18th, and 24th frames carry RBS. Robbed-bit signaling can not be used when the DS1
carries 64 kbps data and therefore limits the channel’s use to voice and analog voiceband
data applications.
Common Channel signaling places the signaling bits for DS0 channels 1 through 23 into the
8-bit word of the 24th channel. This restricts the DS1 from using the 24th channel for voice
or data transmission. This signaling type is known as Digital Multiplexed Interface Bit
Oriented Signaling (DMI-BOS). Common channel signaling is acceptable when DS1 is used
in a data application.
A Remote Multiframe alarm occurs when Common Channel signaling is used and the far end
is unable to synchronize to the multiframe pattern in its incoming signal.
Line Coding Formats
The DS1 signal consists of a continuous stream of 1’s and 0’s. The bit stream is encoded
into bipolar pulses for transmission purposes. Actually, only the 1’s create bipolar pulses
while 0’s are represented as the absence of a bipolar pulse. The line coding formats serve
to guarantee that the bit stream maintains a minimum number of 1’s. In the T1 carrier
system, this is known as the ones-density requirement. A Blue alarm occurs when an all
ones pattern including the framing bits is received. There are two line coding formats, Zero
Code Suppression (ZCS) and Bipolar 8 Zero Suppression (B8ZS).
The Zero Code Suppression line coding format monitors the transmit bit stream and forcibly
changes one of the zeros to a 1 when a string of 8 or more zeros are transmitted. When
RBS signaling is used, the overwritten bit has no effect on voice and voiceband data.
However, when common channel signaling is used, the ZCS format destroys digital data.
The Bipolar 8 Zero Suppression line coding format allows strings of 8 zeros in the DS1
signal, but encodes them into a unique binary sequence (known as a bipolar violation). These
special sequences are then detected at the receiving end and converted back to the correct
sequence. Many of the network interface and transmission equipment devices currently
installed will not pass bipolar violations (while some will correct the violation). B8ZS offers no
advantage for voice or voice grade data, and must be used on unrestricted digital data
applications.
Digital Network Synchronization
The term synchronization refers to an arrangement where digital facilities operate from a
common clock. Whenever digital signals are transmitted over a communication link, the
receiving end must be kept in step or synchronized with the transmitting end in order to
receive the digital signals. This is referred to as link synchronization.
2-118
DS1 Facility Interface
When digital signals are transmitted over a network of digital communications links, switching
nodes, multiplexers, and transmission interfaces, all entities must be synchronized. This is
referred to as network synchronization.
For synchronous transmission, information is transmitted to the transmission facility at a
fixed rate. Each bit occupies a fixed unit time interval. All significant transitions must
correspond to multiples of the fixed unit time interval. Message and frame synchronization
are achieved by using special characters at the beginning and end of the message and by
knowing the number of bits contained in each frame.
If the average transmit rate is faster than the average receive rate, the buffer of the receiving
unit will overrun. If the average receive rate is faster than the average transmit rate, the
buffer of the receiving unit will underrun. It is necessary to control the overruns, (frame
deletions) and underruns (frame repetitions) and, when necessary, only allow an overrun or
underrun in 1-frame increments. The deletion or repetition of a single frame is termed a slip
or a controlled slip.
Controlling the slip rate is accomplished by synchronizing the clocks associated with the
switching equipment so that all transmissions have the same average line rate. The AT&T
digital network synchronization is based on a hierarchy of clocks. Four strata are used with
stratum 1 clock being the most accurate (+/- 0.00001 ppm) and stratum 4 clock the least
accurate (+/- 32 ppm). The stratum 1 clock is the AT&T Reference Frequency clock. AT&T
4ESS™ toll switches maintain stratum 2 clocks while AT&T 5ESS® central office digital
switches and Digital Access and Cross Connects maintain stratum 3 clocks. The System 25
meets accuracy requirements for a stratum 4 clock. If possible, the System 25 should be
synchronized to a higher stratum clock.
T1 Facility Network Connections
The System 25 can be connected to T1 transmission facilities with endpoints on private
networks and public networks.
Private Network Connections
Private network endpoints include connections to other PBXs, or computers which use
internal modems, and off-premises stations.
AT&T Digital PBX Endpoints
The T1 facility can provide digital tie trunk service between System 25, System 75, System
85, and DEFINITY™ Communications System, Generic 1 and Generic 2. The PBXs can be
co-located or geographically disbursed. When co-located, any combination of framing,
signaling, and line coding can be used. However, each PBX must be administered the same.
If the PBXs are separated, the carrier facility providing the T1 facility can place limitations on
the permitted options. In either case, when two or more PBXs are connected together, one
must be selected as the timing master and the others are administered as timing slaves.
2-119
FEATURES AND SERVICES
Non-AT&T Digital PBX Endpoints
To determine if the System 25 can be connected to another vendor’s PBX, several items
must be verified:
●
The other vendor’s PBX must provide a DS1 interface as specified by AT&T.
●
The other vendor’s PBX must provide at least one of the line coding, framing, and
signaling options provided by the System 25.
●
The other vendor’s PBX must implement the digital loss plan specified in EIA RS464/PN1378.
●
The other vendor’s PBX must either maintain a stratum 4 clock or be capable of
synchronizing to System 25.
This list is not exhaustive. Many vendors have certification testing programs for their DS1
products.
AT&T Analog PBX Endpoints
The System 25 DS1 interface can be connected to an analog PBX (such as a Dimension®
PBX or other vendor analog PBX) provided a D4 channel bank is used. The channel bank
demultiplexes the 24 DS0 digital channels and converts each to analog form. The analog
form supports a variety of telephony signaling arrangements. If a D4 channel bank is used,
D4 framing, robbed-bit signaling, and ZCS line coding must be used.
Analog Off-Premises Station Endpoints
The System 25 DS1 interface can be connected to 24 analog off-premises stations provided
a D4 channel bank is used.
Public Network Connection
Public network endpoint connections include central offices, Digital Access and CrossConnect (DACS) system frames, and toll offices.
Note:
Most public network connections require a Customer Service Unit (CSU) to
be installed at the PBX location. The CSU provides proper termination of the
circuit (includes network protection and FCC compliance), signal
regeneration, and loopback testing. A CSU is required at each PBX location
when connecting to ACCUNET™ T1.5 service.
4ESS Toll Switch Endpoint
This connection is called Special Access connection. The physical connection is made either
directly from the System 25 location to the 4ESS toll switch or from the System 25 location
to a central office (a “nailed-up” connection) and then to the toll switch. In either case, toll
calls go directly from the System 25 to the AT&T Communications toll network.
2-120
DS1 Facility Interface
The trunks terminating on a 4ESS switch must be administered as either tie or direct inward
dialing trunk types. The tie trunks can be either one-way or two-way; either immediate start,
wink start or delay dial. The DID trunks are incoming only and wink start or immediate start.
Some 4ESS switches do not provide secondary dial tone. It is recommended that System 25
provide the secondary dial tone. Secondary dial tone can be provided through the Automatic
Route Selection (ARS) feature on all DS1 trunks that terminate on the 4ESS switch.
All framing and signaling modes may not be available on some 4ESS switches. However, D4
framing, ZCS line coding, and robbed-bit signaling is supported. Also B8ZS and Common
Channel signaling is supported.
Touch-tone (DTMF) dialing is not supported on some 4ESS switches. Therefore, the System
25 must support both touch-tone and pulse dialing.
The System 25 synchronization should be administered such that the 4ESS switch provides
the master clock source.
5ESS Digital Switch Endpoint
The 5ESS digital switch provides digital central office service and supports “digital” ground
start, reverse battery, and E&M trunk type.
E&M and direct inward dialing trunks are preferred terminations on a 5ESS switch,
The System 25 synchronization should be administered such that the 5ESS switch provides
the master clock source.
AT&T DACS Endpoint
The System 25 DS1 interface can be connected to a DACS endpoint. The DACS can be
thought of as an “electronic patch panel” for DS1 signals. Cross connections may be made
at either the DS1 or DS0 level. The DACS supports both D4 and ESF framing, both ZCS and
B8ZS line coding, and depending on the DACS software version, both robbed-bit signaling
and common channel signaling.
The DACS contains a stratum 3 clock. In all cases, the DACS is synchronized to the AT&T
Reference frequency. Therefore, a suitable synchronization reference may be optionally
obtained from the DACS.
Analog Central Office Endpoint
The System 25 DS1 facility interface may be connected to any analog central office provided
a D4 channel bank is used.
The D4 channel bank is located at the central office and it is the responsibility of the central
office to set the channel unit attenuators to the appropriate values.
If the D4 is a stand-alone unit, it should use the DS1 signal received from the System 25 as
its timing source. In this case the System 25 must maintain a stratum 4 clock. If the D4 is
2-121
FEATURES AND SERVICES
synchronized to the AT&T Reference Frequency, then it can be used as the synchronization
reference for the System 25.
DS1 Interface Circuit Pack
The TN767 circuit pack is the principal hardware element connecting System 25 to the T1
facility interface. Two DS1 circuit packs may be mounted in the System 25 cabinet(s). Each
DS1 facility interface CP supports up to 24 trunks (23 if common channel signaling is used).
The TN767 CP emulates the TN747 CO trunk CP, the TN753 Direct Inward Dialing CP, the
TN760B Tie Trunk CP, and the TN742 Analog Line CP. This means the TN767 can be
administered to replace existing CPs that support automatic tie trunk, delay dial tie,
immediate dial tie, wink start tie, ground start central office trunk type, loop start central
office trunk type, direct inward dial trunk, and off-premises station line.
The trunk type can be selected on a port-by-port basis for each of the 24 ports of the TN767
CP.
The TN767 monitors the T1 facility for errors such as loss of signal, framing errors, and bit
errors.
DS1 Interface Network Synchronization Circuit Pack
To provide T1 facility interface in System 25, in addition to the TN767 CP, one other CP is
required. The ZTN131 CP synchronizes the System 25 to a master DS1 data stream,
monitoring the reference clock, and maintaining a stratum 4 clock for synchronizing
transmission on all DS1 ports.
Wiring
The DS1 Interface uses shielded cable to connect the TN767 CP to the T1 facility or the CSU
if connecting to a public network.
Emergency Transfer
A T1 line cannot be switched over to an analog phone for emergency transfer. Therefore, the
System 25 should have at least one analog loop or ground-start line if emergency transfer is
needed.

FEATURES AND SERVICES
Data Call Setup
This feature allows a user to originate calls from a data terminal or a voice terminal. System
25 provides three methods of data calling:
●
●
●
2-128
Dialing from a data terminal, which is described in the “Data Terminal Dialing”
feature description.
Setting up data calls from a voice terminal, which is described in the “Transfer to
Data” feature description.
Setting up data calls (or voice calls) for another terminal from a data terminal, which
is described in the “Third-Party Call Setup” feature description.
Data Services Overview
Data Services Overview
System 25’s data features provide switched data transmission at up to 19,200 bps (RS-232
interface), and a 212A modem compatible conversion resource capable of handling data at
300 and 1200 bps.
The system provides switched connections between data endpoints. These endpoints
include data terminals, personal computers, multiport computers, and modems. Data
endpoints are either digital data endpoints or analog data endpoints.
Analog endpoints are connected to System 25 voice terminal or trunk port circuits through a
modem in the traditional manner. Digital endpoints are connected to System 25 data port
circuits on the TN726 Data Line CP. An Asynchronous Data Unit (ADU) is required in place
of the modem used with analog endpoints. Section 4 of this manual shows the connections
supported and required connecting equipment.
Data calls can be set up between data endpoints. Analog to analog and digital to digital
connections are straightforward; calls between analog and digital endpoints are possible only
if the system is equipped with a conversion resource (TN758 Pooled Modem Circuit Pack or
external modem pool). System 25 data calls from analog endpoints (including those to digital
endpoints) are set up in the traditional manner. The calling party should follow the
procedures supplied with his/her modem. However, a Modem Request Code must be dialed
when calling a digital endpoint.
Call setup from digital endpoints is facilitated by several data features: Command Mode,
Expert Mode, Data Terminal Dialing, Modem Pooling, Third-Party Call Setup, and Transfer To
Data.
In the discussion that follows, it is important to understand the difference between analog
voice terminology and data terminology. Refer to the “Glossary” (Section 9).
The following provides a definition of a data call in terms of its contextual components. The
components are (1) data endpoints, (2) data endpoint states, (3) data call processing modes,
(4) connecting configurations, and (5) controlling features.
Data Endpoints
Data endpoints are composed of data terminal equipment, an ADU or modem, and a
connection to the switch via an analog or data port. A digital data endpoint is addressed by
its Data Dial Code (DDC). Analog data endpoints are addressed like other voice terminals,
by their PDCs. For the remainder of this description, data endpoints will refer to digital data
endpoints unless stated otherwise.
Several different categories of data endpoints are supported. The categories have been
divided into two general groups, those having a DTE type interface, which encompasses
almost all of the data terminal devices, and a group of DCE interface devices (primarily
modems). The groups have then been divided into categories based upon their functional
attributes. However, it must be noted that within each category, control interfaces may vary.
2-129
FEATURES AND SERVICES
The following describes the categories and attributes of each:
1.
DTE Devices
This group of data endpoints have one thing in common: their interface configuration
(although RS-232 control signal utilization varies significantly from terminal to
terminal). Some data equipment do not use any RS-232 control signals; these
require only BA (Transmitted Data Ready-Tx), BB (Received Data Ready-Rx) and AB
(Signal Ground) to function, while others require more RS-232 control signals to
operate. An ADU (Figure 2-21) can send Data Terminal Ready (DTR) from the data
terminal to the Data Line circuit and the Data Line circuit can send a control signal to
the data terminal. The signals Data Set Ready (DSR), Clear To Send (CTS), and
Received Line Signal Detector (DCD) are all connected to the control signal from the
DLC in the ADU and available if required by the data terminal. Refer to Section 5
(Port Specifications) for additional information.

Asynchronous Data Unit Interface Signals
The following categories are part of the DTE data endpoint group:
a.
Data Terminal Without ASCII Keyboard
This category includes such devices as Fax machines, EBCDIC or Baudot
terminals, and receive only devices such as printers.
Once connected to an ADU and turned on, these data endpoints appear online, available, and ready to enter the Setup mode on auto-answered calls
(modes are described below). These endpoints will display or print
information received after a valid connection has been established without
additional RS-232 control from that endpoint. Note that since these
endpoints cannot establish calls for themselves, they must either be called by
other endpoints or have calls established for them via the Transfer to Data or
Third-Party Call Setup feature.
2-130
Data Services Overview
b. ASCII Data Terminal With Keyboard
This category can be subdivided into two classes: (1) basic terminals, and (2)
intelligent, programmable data equipment such as personal computers. Basic
terminals appear to the data port to be on-line and available whenever they
are turned on, thus ready to enter either the Data Terminal Dialing mode. or
to enter the Setup mode on calls originating from a voice terminal or on
auto-answered calls.
In the case of most personal computers, a communications program must be
executed in order for it to communicate with its own RS-232 port or built-in
modem. Once the communications software is running, further operation will
be similar to that of the basic terminal.
c.
Host Computer Endpoint
A host computer endpoint is very similar to a data endpoint with keyboard
except that the host has many ports and the interface is usually capable of
supporting multiple speeds and more of the RS-232 control signals. Frontend communication software running in the host is typically supplied by the
computer vendor and is not designed to support the Data Terminal Dialing
feature. Such software typically supports call origination through Automatic
Calling Units (ACUs), which are not compatible with Data Terminal Dialing.
Thus, the primary means of communicating with the host is by calling from
data terminals or personal computers. Groups of host ports with matching
characteristics may be members of hunt groups (referred to as host port
groups).
d. Analog Data Endpoint
Data endpoints with modems are referred to as analog data endpoints.
Modems connected via tip ring lines use PDCs as extension numbers rather
than Data Dial Codes (DDCs). Station-to-station data calls to (or from) this
endpoint from (or to) digital endpoints require a modem conversion resource
to convert the endpoint’s analog data to digital format. Calls from a digital
endpoint to an analog data endpoint (i.e., calls to a PDC), will automatically
have a conversion resource inserted in the calling path. If the called (analog)
endpoint should then invoke Transfer To Data, the conversion resource will
be released. Data calls originating from an analog data endpoint must first
enter a Modem Request Code before addressing a digital data endpoint.
This is required because the system assumes that a call originating from a
voice terminal will invoke Transfer To Data. If the originating station is not
going to transfer to data, it must indicate this so that a conversion resource
will be included in the connection.
2. DCE Devices
This group of data endpoints consists primarily of modems. The modems are
connected to a data port from their RS-232 side. The modem must be configured as
a DTE interface to connect to a System 25 data port. It is possible to simulate a DTE
interface from a modem with a cross-over (“null modem”) cable. This group of
2-131
FEATURES AND SERVICES
endpoints is important for users who provide their own modems, connected to
dedicated trunks or private lines, for internal modem pooling.
Data Endpoint States
The data endpoint may take on three states: (1) off-line, (2) on-line (on-hook), and (3) on-line
(off-hook). Off-line is when a data terminal is out of service (turned off, disconnected, etc,).
The on-line (on-hook) state occurs when the terminal is turned on, is available to answer a
call, but is not on a data call. Finally, the on-line (off-hook) state occurs when the data
endpoint is actively on a data call.
Data Call Processing Modes
Data calls differ both in signaling and call setup from voice calls. For this reason, a unique
set of data call processing modes have been defined to support data call operation in a
manner consistent with the characteristics of data terminals.
a.
Off-Line Mode
The data endpoint is considered to be in the Off-Line Mode whenever the data
endpoint’s DTR signal is inactive (e.g., “turned off”). The endpoint is considered
unavailable and calls to this endpoint will receive the “RINGING” message or
Ringback (indefinitely).
b.
Idle Mode
The Idle Mode indicates that the data endpoint is in its on-line, on-hook state. While
idle, call processing will allow the endpoint to:
— Enter either Data Terminal Dialing mode to originate a data call, or enter the
Setup mode after a call is originated from a voice terminal (Transfer To Data)
or other data terminal (Third-Party Call Setup).
— Autoanswer a data call and go into Setup mode.
The data endpoint remains in the Idle mode while the user is establishing a data call
from a voice terminal until Transfer To Data is activated.
c.
Command Mode
Command Mode enables the Data Terminal Dialing feature, allows the user to view
and change associated data port options, and provides access to the Third-party Call
Setup feature. Command Mode may be entered by going on-line and pressing Break
or Break-Return.
d.
Expert Mode
Expert Mode is an enhancement to the Command Mode feature that provides an
alternative method of performing the full range of Command Mode functions. By
eliminating the display of menus and allowing multiple commands to be entered on a
single line, Expert Mode lends itself to computer-driven instructions. Individual users
who are very familiar with Command Mode operations may also find it useful.
2-132
Data Services Overview
e.
Data Terminal Dialing Mode
Data Terminal Dialing is a data feature accessed via Command Mode. It provides a
procedure to establish data calls without the use of a voice terminal. Data Terminal
Dialing supports both on-premises and off-premises data calls (with the support of
the System 25 Modem Pooling feature). Dialed digits are entered from the data
terminal keyboard or host computer (using a program compatible with Data Terminal
Dialing protocol). Call progress text messages are sent to the terminal in place of
call progress tones. Upon completion of digit entry, Data Call Setup mode is
entered.
f.
Data Call Setup Mode
Data Call Setup Mode is a transitional state entered after Transfer To Data, Data
Terminal Dialing, or during auto-answer; it exists during the handshake between data
ports.
If the endpoints are compatible and handshaking is successful, a data connection is
established. If handshake failure occurs, the user is notified and the data endpoint
returns to the Idle mode. Successful handshake must occur within 15 seconds of
answer at the called data endpoint. This implies that the voice terminal user must
invoke Transfer To Data within 15 seconds after far-end answer. Similarly, if an
originating voice user calls a voice terminal and both users transfer to data, both
ends must transfer within the 15 second time limit.
If the data endpoint is optioned for Command Mode permission, the data endpoint
will receive call progress text messages while in the Data Call Setup mode.
g.
Data Mode
Data Mode is first entered after successful completion of Data Call Setup.
Transparent communication between connected endpoints is provided in Data Mode.
Connecting Configurations
Refer to “Connectivity” in Section 4 for data equipment connections.
Controlling Features
It is possible to originate data calls from either a voice terminal with a Transfer to Data
button or from data endpoints that support Command Mode (i.e., ASCII data terminals with
keyboards and host computers). Several controlling features are provided to allow data
endpoints and voice terminals to set up data calls. The following briefly describes the Data
Service features used in controlling data calls:
a. Command Mode/Expert Mode
Command Mode and Expert Mode provide an interface to the Data Terminal Dialing
feature, the Third-Party Call Setup feature, and permits users to display and change
data port options.
2-133
FEATURES AND SERVICES
b. Data Terminal Dialing
Data Terminal Dialing provides call setup from terminals and host computers
c. Transfer To Data
Transfer To Data is the preferred method of data call origination from multiline voice
terminals equipped with Transfer to Data (DATA) buttons and associated digital data
endpoints. The DATA button is associated by DDC with a near end data endpoint. A
unique DATA button must be provided for each DDC that the voice terminal is
capable of controlling. Associated with each DATA button is an LED that reflects the
status of data endpoints as follows:
●
Dark—Data endpoint is idle
●
W i n k i n g —Data endpoint is reserved (preindicated)
●
F l a s h i n g — Data endpoint is being alerted of an incoming call
●
On Steady —Data endpoint is either in the on-line (off-hook) state or is
reserved for another user and busy.

Data Terminal Dialing
Data Terminal Dialing
Description
This feature allows users to onginate (place) data calls from a data terminal. Voice terminal
dialing and call progress tones are replaced by keyboard dialing and call progress messages.
The message “DIAL:”’ prompts the user to enter the called number from the keyboard, and
“RINGING” or “DIALING ... COMPLETED” informs the user that the dialed number is being
called.
Table 2-1 provides a list of the call progress messages.
Note:
The following dialing procedures assume that “Command Mode” is active,
Refer to the feature description on “Expert Mode” for an alternative method
of dialing.
Dialed Characters:
In addition to digits and the “ # ” and “ ✶ ” characters on the touch-tone pad, the dialed
number may contain the following special characters:
●
The characters “(” “)” “—” and SPACE may be used to improve legibility. These
characters are ignored.
●
The “%” or “,” characters may be used to cause a 1.5-second pause in dialing.
Multiple pause characters can be used to produce longer pauses.
●
The “$” (mark) character indicates that the remaining digits are for end-to-end
signaling.
●
UNDERSCORE or BACKSPACE characters may be used to correct previously typed
characters on the same line.
●
The “@” character may be used to delete the entire line and start over with a new
DIAL: prompt.
Each line of dialing information may contain up to 27 characters. Note that all of the dialing
information, including pauses and ignored characters, must be typed on a single line
following the DIAL: prompt and terminated by Return.
Dialing Correction:
The backspace character (BS key or Ctrl-H keys) or underscore (“_”) may be used to cancel
the previously entered character. More than one entered character may be deleted by using
multiple backspace or underscore characters. The “@” character may be used to delete the
entire line of entered characters.
Pause:
To assist the completion of off-premises calls, the pause characters “%” or “,” may be
used. A pause character may be used to help ensure the receipt of dial tone before
continuing to dial. Each “%” or “,” causes a fixed delay of one and one-half (1.5) seconds.
2-135
FEATURES AND SERVICES
Pause characters may be used consecutively if a longer pause is required. Note that System
25 cannot detect tones, such as a second dial tone for end-to-end signaling.
End-to-End Signaling:
Data connections to off-premises destinations require that a conversion resource (pooled
modem) be inserted into the connection. Occasionally it is necessary to send additional
tones to the remote endpoint after the connection is established to signal the remote
equipment. A “mark” character ($) must be included on the DIAL: line to indicate to call
processing that the remaining digits are to be sent to the far end prior to insertion of the
conversion resource into the connection. The “mark” character marks the boundary
between the digits dialed to reach a distant endpoint, and the digits used by that distant
endpoint after it has answered. Pause characters may and usually should follow a “mark”
character. An example using a “mark” character and several pause characters is shown
below. Dashes are included for readability.
Examples of dialing are as follows:
●
DIAL:
3478
●
DIAL:
9-1-(201)-946-8123,,$,5678
●
DIAL: 9%946-8123%%$%5678%137%110
Call Disposition:
Call progress messages corresponding to call progress tones provided to voice terminals are
listed in Table 2-1. The message supplied (indicating reorder, busy, ringback) depends on the
disposition of the call.
1.
When ringback is received the displayed message is “RINGING” (internal calls only).
For outside calls, the corresponding call progress message is
“DIALING . . . .”.
2.
If the endpoint answers, the displayed message is “ANSWERED” (internal calls only).
Then, if the handshake succeeds, a data connection is established. For outside calls,
when the system has finished dialing, the message “COMPLETED” is displayed.
3.
If the handshake fails because a connection cannot be established between
endpoints (e.g., a port optioned at 9600 baud attempts to talk to a conversion
resource that can only talk at 300 or 1200 baud), the user receives “INCOMPATIBLE
FAR END,” “ DISCONNECTED,” and the data endpoint goes on-hook.
If the far end does not answer, the caller must press Break to terminate the call attempt.
If the disposition of the call is such that TRY AGAIN or BUSY (indicating reorder or intercept
and busy respectively) is received, the switch sends “DISCONNECTED” to the data terminal
and returns the data endpoint to idle mode.

terminal will auto-answer if it is turned on.) If the handshake succeeds, a data connection is
established and the “CONNECTED” message is displayed if so optioned. If the handshake
fails, the user receives “INCOMPATIBLE FAR END, DISCONNECTED” and the data endpoint
returns to idle mode.
Considerations
Data Terminal Dialing allows users to place data calls from their terminals using the Data
Terminal Dialing feature and allows users to review the options administered for their data
ports.
Interactions
The following features interact with Data Terminal Dialing
End-To-End Signaling: (See preceding text.)
Modem Pooling: Data calls between analog and digital endpoints require that a conversion
resource (TN758) be available. If one is not, the “NO MODEM” followed by “TRY AGAIN”
message will be displayed.
Speed Dialing: System Speed Dialing codes can be dialed from data terminals. Personal
Speed Dialing is not supported.

Dial Access to Message Waiting Indicators
Dial Access to Message Waiting Indicators
Description
This feature allows users to turn on or turn off the message waiting indicator on any voice
terminal in the system by dialing a code.
To turn on a Message LED at some station, the user first goes off-hook, or flashes the
switchhook, to get dial tone. The user then dials activation code #90 followed by the
extension number of the target station. If the attempt to turn on the LED is allowed, the
caller receives confirmation tone, and the connection is dropped. If the dialed station has no
Message LED or if the extension number is invalid, the attempt is denied and the caller gets
reorder tone.
In conjunction with Dial Access service, each Direct Group Calling (DGC) group in the system
may have one station assigned as receiver of message waiting indications. If a caller dials
the number of a DGC group, the system routes the message waiting request to the extension
of the designated message waiting indication receiver.
The procedure for turning off a Message LED parallels the turn-on procedure. The user gets
dial tone, then dials deactivation code #91 and the extension number of the target station.
Confirmation tone is returned if the attempt is successful, reorder tone if it is not.
Considerations
Dial Access to Message Waiting Indicators provides users with a way to notify any other
terminal that a message is waiting.
This feature does not apply to the feature buttons/LEDs administered for Station-to-Station
Message Waiting.
Interactions
Dial Access to Message Waiting Indicators can coexist with the other messaging services in
System 25. Careful management is essential so that users know where to retrieve their
messages.
The following feature interacts with Dial Access.
Display: When a display telephone set user dials #90 (or #91) followed by an extension
number to light (or extinguish) a Message LED at some station, the dialed digits are
displayed. A confirmation of Message LED activation or deactivation is not displayed.
Hardware Requirements
Only terminals with built-in message waiting indicators (designated MSG or MESSAGE) or
Z3A Message Waiting Indicator adjuncts can be signaled by this feature.

FEATURES AND SERVICES
Dial Plan
The dialing plan for System 25 is based on the concept that, whenever possible, calls should
be placed to individuals rather than to voice terminals. To implement this concept,
individuals are assigned Personal Dial Codes (PDCs) and are allowed to sign in those PDCs
at other voice terminals. There are two types of PDCs: assigned and floating. An assigned
PDC is associated with each voice terminal. Floating PDCs (FPDCs) may be signed in at any
voice terminal. Calls to FPDCs will ring at the signed-in terminal and may (optionally) ring at
the attendant position when not signed in anywhere.
Data extensions on System 25 are assigned Data Dial Codes (DDCs).
Dial Code Assignments
System 25 dial codes are as follows:
Assignable System 25 dial codes may have 1, 2, 3, or 4 digits. These include voice terminal
PDCs, data terminal DDCs, Direct Group Calling (DGC) Groups, Paging Access, Attendant
(Selector Console) Park, Night Service, Modem Request, Automatic Route Selection Access,
Facility Access (trunk group), and Dictation System Access codes.
System 25 fixed dial codes are:
●
0 — Attendant access
●
✶ 1, ✶ 2, ✶ 3 — Reserved
●
✶ 4 — Activate Make-Busy for DGC group member
●
✶ 5 — Park
●
✶ 6 — Deactivate Make-Busy for DGC group member
●
✶ 7 + 0 — Group Pickup Answer
●
✶ 7 + PDC — Directed Pickup Answer
●
✶ 8 + PDC — Park Retrieval
●
✶ 9 — Camped-On/Call Waiting Call Retrieval
●
✶ ✶ 0 — Account Code Entry
●
✶ ✶ PDCPDC — Sign in PDC (Following and Forwarding)
●
✶ ✶ PDC0 — Sign out PDC (Following)
●
✶ ✶ 0 — Sign out all PDCs (Following)

●
# # — Sends a “ # ” (in programmed numbers)
●
# ✶ — Sends a “ ✶ ” (in programmed numbers)
●
# # PDC — Call Accountability.
The maximum number of dial codes available for a System 25 is 600. Each assigned code is
stored individually in memory.
The dial codes assigned in the system must be completely unambiguous. For example, a
dialing plan that contains the number “20” cannot contain the numbers “2,” “200-209,” or
“2000-2099.”
PDC to Voice Terminal Association
During installation, each voice terminal is assigned one PDC that serves as its extension
number. These are referred to as “assigned” PDCs, and the associated terminals are called
home stations. Additional “floating” PDCs (FPDCs), may be assigned in a system. At the
customer’s option, floating PDCs may have the attendant position assigned as their home
station (i.e., calls to FPDCs will be directed to the attendant when they are not signed in
anywhere). A maximum of 200 assigned PDCs and 300 FPDCs may be allocated in a system.
2-141
FEATURES AND SERVICES
Data Dial Codes (DDCs)
At the time of installation each digital data endpoint will be assigned a Data Dial Code (DDC)
that serves as its extension number. A maximum of 104 DDCs may be allocated in a system.
Direct Inward Dial (DID) Number Assignments
Each DID number is associated with a unique PDC (floating or assigned), a DGC access
code, a Remote Access point, a DDC, or a pooled facility access code. The code associated
with a DID number is the last 2, 3, or 4 digits of the DID number. For example, the code
associated with the DID number “NXX-2157” will be 57, 157, or 2157.
All dial codes in the system that are associated with DID numbers should have the same
number of digits. However, there is no requirement that all PDCs, DDCs, DGC access
codes, or facility access codes be associated with DID numbers.
Voice Terminal Directed Features
Directed Night Service, DGC calls, Personal Line Calls, Manual Signaling, Station Message
Waiting, Automatic Intercom, and Outward/Toll Restriction are associated with specific
terminals (stations), not with PDCs. This means that these features do not move with a PDC
when it is signed in at another voice terminal.
2-142
Dictation System Access
Dictation System Access
Description
This feature permits voice terminal users to access and control customer-owned dictation
equipment. System 25 can provide an interface to dictation systems that require either an
industry-standard station line port or an Auxiliary Trunk port with contact closure (equivalent
to a push-to-talk switch).
The dictation system is accessed by dialing the designated access code or by pressing a
DSS button on which this access code is stored.
Considerations
This feature allows users to access and
system is essentially a sophisticated tape
physical control. For instance, pressing
rewind its tape; pressing the digit three
tape.
control a shared dictation system. A dial dictation
recorder that can respond to touch-tone signals for
the digit six might cause the dictation system to
might cause the dictation system to play back its
Most modern dial dictation systems interface to System 25 through an industry-standard
station line port. However, some dictation systems require contact closure for recording
control and must interface to System 25 through a port on an Auxiliary Trunk CP (TN763) by
means of an Auxiliary Trunk Interface and a Paging/Dial Dictation Interface.
If a dictation system may be optioned for either of these interfaces, the preferred interface is
the station line port.
Interactions
The following feature interacts with Dictation System Access.
Direct Inward Dialing (DID): A DID number may match the dictation system access code.
This allows an outside caller to access the dictation equipment.
Administration Requirements
System:
●
Dial dictation equipment requires a suitable port to interface to System 25. A port on
a ZTN78 Tip Ring Line or TN742 Analog Line CP is the preferred interface if the
dictation equipment can be optioned for a station port. A port on a TN763 Auxiliary
Trunk CP and its associated equipment must be used if the dictation system requires
a separate contact closure for proper operation.

Digital Tape Unit (DTU)
Digital Tape Unit (DTU)
The Digital Tape Unit (Figure 2-23) is a RS-232 device used to record administration
translations. The DTU does not encode the translations data as it records, nor does it
require decoding circuitry when playing back (restoring) recorded data. Data is recorded and
transmitted at 1200 bps.
The DTU requires 115V commercial power from a 3-wire grounded outlet. It should be
located on a desk or table top. The recorder is approximately 5 inches wide, 2 inches high,
and 10 inches long.
As shown in Figure 2-24, the DTU must be directly connected to port #3 on the Call
Processor (ZTN82 or ZTN128) CP. Remote and switched connections are not supported.
Maximum cabling distances are provided in Section 5, “Technical Specifications.”

Direct Group Calling (DGC)
Direct Group Calling (DGC)
Description
Direct Group Calling (DGC) allows incoming calls to be directed to a specific group of
telephones. Up to 32 DGC groups, each including up to 20 members, may be set up. Each
DGC group can have its own individual (unique) announcement. A terminal can be in only
one DGC group. Incoming calls on particular trunks can be directed to a DGC group. These
trunks can also be used for outgoing calls.
DGC groups can be administered as Coverage Groups receivers. Refer to the “Coverage,
Group” feature description for details.
Calls to a DGC group hunt in a circular manner, starting at the terminal following the last one
to receive ringing (whether answered or not), and will ring at the next idle terminal in the
group. On multiline voice terminals the calls arrive on a SYSTEM ACCESS button (LOOP
button on a Switched Loop Attendant Console).
If all group members are busy (off-hook), an outside call is queued and the caller receives
ringback tone. If the DGC has a delay announcement, it is played after a specified amount of
time (up to 255 seconds). The caller is subsequently put on hold (in queue) and will receive
Music-On-Hold if available. If the system is not equipped with a delay announcement, the
call will begin to ring at all line appearances after the specified interval.
An inside caller dials a DGC access code to reach a DGC group. If all members of the group
are busy, the call will go into a queue if Callback Queuing is activated either automatically or
manually, otherwise, the call will not queue and the caller will receive Busy Tone.
Once the call begins to ring at a group member’s station, it will not receive announcement
service or ring at a line appearance. For this reason, it is important that DGC members log
out (as described below) when they will be away from their desks.
The attendant can camp-on multiple outside (trunk) calls when all members of the group are
busy. Group members do not receive camp-on indication. The camped-on calls will be
queued, and are eligible for the DGC delay announcement. If no delay announcement is
available, the calls will return to the attendant console after a specified number of rings.
DGC group members may withdraw from the group (log out) by going off-hook and dialing
✶ 4. To reenter the group (log in), the member goes off-hook and dials ✶ 6.
An off-hook multiline terminal or attendant console (even if busy on only one SYSTEM
ACCESS or LOOP button) appears busy to DGC calls. However, terminals other than the
SLAC may receive other (non-DGC) calls while active on a DGC call.
Direct Group Calling groups may be used for data applications to access host ports and the
STARLAN Interface CP. The System Administrator may disable queuing for data DGC
groups, if desired. Delay announcements and music-on-hold are not provided for data
groups.
2-147
FEATURES AND SERVICES
Considerations
DGC groups are particularly useful when the answering group receives a high volume of
calls. Call completion time is minimized and attendant assistance is not required.
Any number of outside trunks may be administered to feed into a DGC group. A trunk may
feed only one DGC group.
Interactions
The following features interact with Direct Group Calling.
Attendant Console, Switched Loop: When an incoming trunk call rings simultaneously at a
DGC queue and a Switched Loop Attendant Console queue, it may be answered by either,
depending on who answers first.
Attendant Direct Extension Selection: When all stations in a DGC group are busy, the status
LED on the Selector Console lights steadily.
Bridging of System Access Buttons: DGC calls arriving on System Access buttons at a
principal station can receive bridging treatment at a bridging station.
Callback Queuing: Inside calls to busy DGC groups can be queued. Queuing is not allowed
if all members of the DGC group are logged out. A multiline DGC member with a queued call
and a single-line member with an off-hook queued call are considered busy.
Coverage: When a call rings at DGC station that has Coverage, the call will receive that
station’s coverage. Calls directed to a busy DGC group do not receive coverage. Instead,
after a predefined amount of time (up to 255 seconds), a trunk call will be transferred to a
delay announcement (if provided), or ringing will be transferred to all button appearances of
the line and the SLAC queue (if trunk has ringing enabled).
Display: A logged-in Direct Group Calling (DGC) group member can view the number of calls
waiting to be serviced by the group. The display is continuously updated for all members. A
digit, 0 through 9 or “!” for 10 or more, appears in position 16. DGC queue values are not
displayed at a SLAC assigned to a DGC group; the attendant’s display always contains the
number of calls waiting in the attendant queue.
Direct Group Calling Delay Announcement: Provides a recorded announcement to an
outside (trunk) caller who has been placed in queue for a DGC group.
Direct Inward Dialing: An incoming DID call may match a DGC group access code.
Direct Station Selection (DSS): A DSS button can be assigned to a DGC group. The
associated LED lights steadily when all stations in the group are busy.
Modem Pooling: Modem Pooling supports calls to data endpoints that are part of a DGC
group. While an incoming data call is in a DGC group queue, the caller receives ringing. The
conversion resource is inserted if the call is completed to a digital endpoint.
2-148
Direct Group Calling (DGC)
Personal Lines: An outside line directed to a DGC group can be assigned button
appearances in addition to the DGC group assignment. When an incoming call is ringing at a
DGC group, the status LED on the voice terminal button appearance lights steadily, indicating
that the line is busy. If the call goes unanswered for a pre-determined amount of time (up to
255 seconds) (and no delay announcement is provided), ringing will be transferred to all
button appearances of the line and the status LED will flash.
Pickup: A DGC group member can also be a member of a Pickup group.
Remote Access: Remote Access callers cannot log into or out of a DGC group.
Station Message Detail Recording (SMDR): For an incoming call to a DGC group that was
connected to an announcement but was never answered, “0” will be reported in the “STN”
field of the call record. If the call was answered by a station after receiving the
announcement, that station will be listed in the “STN” field.
Tie Trunks: Calls to a busy DGC group via tie trunks will be queued and will receive a delay
announcement, if available.
Transfer: Internal stations can transfer outside (trunk) calls to a busy DGC group. The
transferred call will be treated as any other trunk call to a busy DGC group. The transferring
party will hear Busy tone, but the transfer will complete. The call will queue and the calling
party will receive delay announcement, if available.
Administration Requirements
Trunk Ports:
●
Assign trunks to DGC Group.
●
Assign trunks to ring in SLAC queue.
System:
●
Assign amount of time (up to 255 seconds) before DGC calls are transferred to
announcement or begin ringing at button appearances or SLAC queue.
Direct Group Calling:
●
Assign DGC access code, add/delete DGC members, enable/disable queuing for data
DGC groups.
●
Assign delay announcement (1-32).

FEATURES AND SERVICES
Direct Group Calling Delay Announcement
Description
This feature provides a recorded announcement to an outside (trunk) caller who has been
placed in queue for a DGC Group.
When all members in the group are busy (off-hook), the call will be queued for DGC service
and the calling party will receive ringback tone. Note that no incoming call indication (ringing)
is provided to the DGC group members at this point. After a specified amount of time (up to
255 seconds) (administrable) a recorded announcement will be played to the calling party
without disturbing his or her position in queue. The caller is subsequently placed on hold
and will receive music if available.
Once a call begins to ring at a DGC station, the call is no longer eligible for delay
announcement service. The call will then ring until answered, covered, picked up, or
abandoned.
Considerations
An individual (unique) announcement can be provided for each group, for several groups, or
for all DGCs in the system. Each DGC group can have one announcement (32 maximum).
DGC Delay Announcements provide the calling party with a message that acknowledges their
call and assures them that their call will be handled in an orderly way.
An extension number is administered for each DGC delay announcement device, permitting
users to change the announcement. The extension number is restricted to authorized users
only.
Interactions
The following feature interacts with Direct Group Calling Delay Announcement.
Tie Trunks: Calls to busy DGC groups via tie trunks will be queued and will receive the delay
announcement, if available.
Administration Requirements
Each DGC announcement device requires a port assignment on a ZTN78 Tip Ring Line or
TN742 Analog Line CP. Individual DGC groups are assigned to a particular announcement.
Up to 32 groups may be assigned to announcements.
2-150
Direct Group Calling Delay Announcement
Hardware Requirements
The announcement device must automatically hang up at the end of each call so that the
incoming call can be returned to the DGC queue.
Each announcement device requires a port on a ZTN78 Tip Ring Line (or TN742 Analog Line)
CP. The system supports up to 32 DGC delay announcements.
For Music-On-Hold hardware information, refer to the “Music-On-Hold” feature description.
Detailed connection information is provided in Figure 2-25.
Descriptions of the SIP (Station Interconnect Panel), TAE (Trunk Access Equipment). and
associated cables and adapters, as shown on the figures, are provided under the heading

FEATURES AND SERVICES
Direct Inward Dialing (DID)
Description
Direct Inward Dialing (DID) allows incoming dial pulse type calls to reach specific individuals
or facilities in the system without attendant assistance.
System 25 customers reserve blocks of DID numbers from the CO. The DID numbers may
correspond to a PDC, FPDC, DGC access code, DDC, or any facility with an access code
such as a pooled facility or a paging zone.
The system is capable of receiving either 1, 2, 3, or 4 digits over its DID trunks. The number
of digits received on a specific DID trunk will be constant for that trunk; however, different
DID trunks may receive different numbers of digits. The system is capable of receiving up to
four digits and then ignoring leading digits as specified to match against system dial codes.
For example, the dial code matching DID number NXX-2157 can be 57, 157, or 2157. If the
System 25 is administered to match on more digits than are received from the Central Office
(CO), the additional leading digits are taken from the 4-digit trunk number. For example: if a
call comes in on DID trunk number 1234, the CO sends two digits (77) over this trunk to
identify the recipient, and System 25 is administered to match on three digits, then the call
will be routed to dial code 277.
Incoming DID numbers that don’t match any valid dial code may optionally be directed to the
Attendant Console or to Reorder Tone.
If the DID number received is a valid dial code, the caller is provided either Ringback Tone,
Busy Tone, or the tone from a pooled facility (e.g., Dial Tone) as soon as addressing is
completed. Busy Tone is provided if and only if the call cannot be completed to the intended
voice terminal and cannot be provided coverage.
DID calls appear at System Access buttons on multiline voice terminals (they do not have
other button appearances). These calls can be transferred to a covering station, answered
via Pickup, directed to a DGC Group, or given Station Hunting, Following, or Forwarding
treatment. A DID call is not automatically covered on the Attendant Console.
DID trunks may utilize DID Immediate Start or Wink Start protocols, but must be dial pulse
(touch-tone DID trunks are not supported). Refer to Section 9, Glossary, for a brief
description of each of these trunk types.
Considerations
Direct Inward Dialing frees the attendant from handling certain incoming calls.
2-152
Direct Inward Dialing (DID)
Interactions
The following features interact with Direct Inward Dialing.
Attendant Camp-On: DID calls are not provided Attendant Camp-On treatment. They will not
appear on the Direct Trunk Attendant Console Return-On-Busy or Return-On-Don’t-Answer
buttons or on the Switched Loop Attendant Console Loop buttons unless they are first answered
at the attendant position and are subsequently extended by the attendant.
Attendant Direct Extension Selection: Selector Console LEDs respond to DID calls just as
they do for other outside calls. When a user answers a DID call, the associated LED on the
Selector Console will light steadily. When a DID call arrives at the attendant position for
coverage, the LED associated with the coverage sender will flash and will then go dark when the
call is answered. However, if the call is placed directly to the attendant position or is forwarded to
the position and thereby arrives on a System Access button or a Loop button (e.g., if a DID PDC
is signed-in at the attendant position), then no LED indications on the Selector Console will be
provided. If a DID call is directed to the answering position and is subsequently extended to a
station, then the LED on the Selector Console associated with the station will flash if the call
returns to the answering position. The LED will light steadily if the call is answered by the station.
Call Waiting: Incoming DID trunk calls do not wait at busy stations; they receive busy tone.
Conference: For conference purposes, DID calls count as one of two allowable outside parties.
Coverage: DID calls receive standard coverage treatment.
Dictation System Access: A DID number may be associated with the dictation system access
code. This allows an outside caller to access the dictation equipment.
Direct Group Calling: A DID call will be directed to a DGC group if the DID number matches the
DGC group access code.
Night Service: DID calls do not receive Night Service treatment. A DID call will ring at the
appropriate station whether Night Service is activated or not.
Off-Premises Stations (OPS): DID calls can be directed to OPS.
Paging System Access: A DID call may access a paging zone. This allows the user to dial in
and utilize the Paging feature. Dial restricting the paging code will block this interaction.
Personal Dial Codes: DID calls will be redirected to PDCs signed in at other terminals in the
system. DID calls to an unassigned PDC or a FPDC that is not signed in will be either redirected
to the attendant or receive Reorder Tone.
2-153
FEATURES AND SERVICES
Pooled Facility Access: Access to pooled facilities via DID is permitted. This includes access
to WATS, FX, tie trunks, private lines, dictation equipment, and paging systems. This access is
provided by selecting facility access codes so that they will match DID numbers.
Warning:
Matching DID numbers to FACs may open the way for unauthorized
calls which will be billed to the outgoing trunk.
Remote Access: A valid DID number can be assigned for Remote Access calls into the system.
Station Message Detail Recording (SMDR): Only one SMDR record is produced if an outgoing
call is originated by a DID trunk. The STN field will contain the DID trunk’s 4-digit number, the
FAC field will contain the facility access code of the trunk group used to complete the call, and
the CALLED NUMBER field will contain the called number.
Administration Requirements
System:
●
Send calls for unassigned DID numbers to the Attendant Console (yes or no; default =
yes).
●
Set number of DID digits matched against dial codes (2-4, none; default = 3).
Trunk Port:
●
DID trunk type (Immediate Dial, Wink Start)
●
Number of digits to be received from CO on this trunk; default = 3.
Hardware Requirements
Each DID trunk requires a port on a TN753 DID Trunk CP.

Directory
Directory
Description
This feature allows the user of a voice terminal where the Display feature is administered to
search the system’s integrated directory data base for the extension numbers associated
with specific names. Information resulting from the use of Directory is displayed on the voice
terminal’s screen.
The user enters Directory Mode from Normal Mode by pressing the DIRECTORY button.
The system presents the following display to prompt the user to enter a name using the dial
pad buttons and then dial # to mark the end of the search entry.
Screen 1
DIR: ENTER NAME#
The dial pad buttons are labeled with all the necessary entry characters except as follows:
●
Q is entered by pressing button 7 (PRS).
●
Z is entered by pressing button 9 (WXY).
●
Space, comma, or dot is entered by pressing the ✶ button
The directory prompt, DIR: ENTER NAME#, remains displayed on the screen until the user
finishes entering the characters of the name and presses #. (It is often unnecessary to enter
a full name, but whatever is entered must be terminated by #.) The system then searches
the directory data base for a match between the entered characters and the stored names.
If none is found, the prompt is removed and NO MATCH FOUND is displayed. Otherwise,
directory information is presented as shown in the following example:
Screen 1
D645 Wiggins,G
The D in position 1 indicates that the Directory Mode is active.
If the name is not the correct one, the NEXT button allows the user to request that the next
matched name be displayed. This operation can be repeated. As an alternative, the user
can narrow the search by entering additional letters followed by #. The additional letters are
added to the end of the previously-entered search string. If a mistake is made, the user can
press DIRECTORY twice (to exit and reenter the mode) and try to enter the desired name
again.
If the user reaches the end of a matched list, NO MATCH FOUND is displayed. The user can
return to the first matched name by pressing NEXT again.
When the displayed name is the correct one, the user can call the number by pressing the
CALL button. If the terminal is on-hook, the speakerphone will turn on automatically.
2-155
FEATURES AND SERVICES
The user of a non-attendant display set can exit from Directory Mode directly to Program
Mode by moving the program switch on the left side of the terminal to position P. However,
to reenter Directory, the user must first go from Program to Normal and then press
DIRECTORY.
The user can return from Directory Mode to either Normal Mode or Local Mode by any of the
following actions:
●
Press DIRECTORY again.
●
Allow timeout to occur after 15 seconds with no operation of other buttons (such as
NEXT).
●
Change switchhook state; if the user goes on-hook, the terminal returns to Normal or
Local Mode; if the user goes off-hook, the terminal returns to Normal Mode.
●
Select a call appearance button; the terminal returns to Normal Mode.
Considerations
The Directory feature is most effective if the system administrator enters names in
base in a last name/comma/first initial format. Characters other than letters and
(and commas) are discouraged. However, the system does not enforce these
maximum of eleven characters can be entered for a name in the data base, but only

Activating the Directory Mode has the following impact on terminal operation:
●
Hands-Free Answer on Intercom (HFAI) is disabled.
●
If the user is on-hook but has a call on hold, there is no effect on the call.
●
If the user is off-hook and in the midst of dialing, the system disconnects the call.
●
If the user is off-hook and has completed dialing, there is no effect on the call.
●
Automatic Incoming Call Identification (see the “Display” feature description) is
suppressed.
●
Calls can be originated only by using the CALL button.
●
Incoming calls ring and flash, but answering a call will change the terminal from
Directory Mode to Normal Mode.

FEATURES AND SERVICES
Direct Station Selection (DSS)
Description
Direct Station Selection (DSS) allows one-button access to another voice terminal, a paging
zone, or a DGC Group. DSS requires a button assignment on a multiline voice terminal.
There are two types of DSS buttons. Numbers stored on DSS buttons (maximum of four
digits) are programmed at the SAT; numbers stored on Flexible DSS buttons (maximum of
four digits) are programmed at the voice terminal. The procedure for programming FLEX
DSS buttons is provided in the “Program” feature description.
To use DSS, the user presses DSS or FLEX DSS and goes off-hook. The caller hears
Ringback Tone. DSS calls to a multiline voice terminal are received on a System Access
button. The DSS status LED is lighted steadily at the calling station.
The DSS status LED is lighted whenever the pointed-to station is off-hook. The user may
press DSS and remain on-hook to receive the busy-to-idle reminder. The user’s voice
terminal will ring once when the other party hangs up; lifting the handset will automatically
place the call.
When Prime Line Preference is assigned to a DSS button, the button must be pressed to
invoke the busy-to-idle reminder, even though the I-Use LED is lighted.
Access to Paging Zones and DGC Groups:
DSS (not FLEX DSS) access is provided to an individual Paging Zone or to all paging zones
or to a DGC group. If the paging zone(s) is administered to be dial restricted, users assigned
DSS buttons with paging access codes can still access the paging equipment. The status
and busy-to-idle reminder indication described above also apply to DGC groups with the
understanding that a DGC group is busy if all members in that group are busy.
Considerations
Direct Station Selection differs from Automatic Intercom in that it provides one-button access
from one voice terminal to another (one-way only), while Automatic Intercom provides similar
access for each voice terminal (two-way) and must be assigned between two multiline voice
terminals. A DSS button may point to a single-line station; an Automatic Intercom button
may not. DSS calls receive coverage, Automatic Intercom calls do not.
Interactions
The following features interact with Direct Station Selection.
Bridging of System Access Buttons: Calls from DSS or FLEX DSS buttons on the principal
station are not accessible from Bridged Access buttons on the bridging station.
2-158
Direct Station Selection (DSS)
Coverage: DSS calls placed to an individual with Coverage will receive standard coverage
treatment.
Display: Operation of a programmed FLEX DSS button generates a display of the information
stored on the button: if the button is not programmed, NO INFORMATION is displayed.
Direct Group Calling: A DSS button can be assigned to a DGC group. The associated LED
lights steadily when all stations in the group are busy.
Following/Forwarding: DSS calls do receive Following or Forwarding treatment.
Last Number Dialed: Numbers called by pressing FLEX DSS or DSS buttons are not saved
by Last Number Dialed and cannot be redialed with that feature.
Line Selection (Prime Line Preference): When Prime Line Preference is assigned to a DSS
button, the button must be pressed to invoke the busy-to-idle reminder, even though its red
I-Use LED is lighted.
Personal Dial Code (PDC): An attempt to program a FPDC on a FLEX DSS button (rather
than a PDC) results in Reorder Tone.

FEATURES AND SERVICES
Display
Description
This feature provides visual alphanumeric call information at multiline voice terminals
equipped with display modules. The Display feature also provides support for the Directory,
Inspection, Local Display, and Program features, which are all covered in separate feature
descriptions. Display capability is based on the system’s integrated directory, which allows
names to be associated with Personal Dial Codes (PDCs), Data Dial Codes (DDCs), Direct
Group Calling (DGC) groups, and trunks.
Call information is presented on the 16-character screen located in the upper right area of
the following sets. (Refer to Section 4, “Hardware Description” for complete information and
pictures.)
●
Model 7305H04C 34-Button Multiline Voice Terminal.
●
Model 7317H01A 34-Button Multiline Voice Terminal (BIS 34D).
Both of these terminals can be assigned as general user positions or as Switched Loop
Attendant Consoles (SLACs). Display operation is basically the same in both applications;
differences will be pointed out in the following descriptions.
The following types of data are presented for calls handled at display terminals:
●
The extension number and name of an inside party called from the console
●
The extension number and name of an inside party calling the console
●
Trunk identification on incoming trunk calls
●
Digits dialed on outgoing trunk calls
●
Called and calling party information on coverage/redirected calls
●
Called and calling party information on returning and third-party calls.
●
Call type and reason for return or redirection
●
Number of calls waiting in attendant, callback, and DGC queues
●
Special information resulting from feature button operation
Display Screen
The Display feature can generate up to two screens of call information, each of which
contains 16 character positions. Screen 1 is automatically activated on incoming and
outgoing calls and some feature button operations; no action is required of the station user
to access this display. Screen 2 is available for secondary and overflow information about
calls.
2-160
Display
Display Operation Modes
Most normal call handling activity, such as placing and answering calls and using features,
takes place in “Normal Mode.” Call displays in this mode require no manual action by the
user except for operation of the SCROLL button to display Screen 2 in certain types of calls.
Some terminals (SLACs and logged-in DGC stations) remain in Normal Mode unless their
users deliberately enter another mode, while others revert to a clock/calendar display (Local
Mode) when there is no call handling activity.
The Display feature has four other modes of operation that the user must enter to operate
the Directory, Inspect, Local Display, or Program features:
●
Directory Mode: for searching for names/numbers in the system’s integrated
directory; entered by pressing DIRECTORY.
●
Inspection Mode: for displaying information about call appearances, assigned
features, stored numbers, etc; entered by pressing INSPECT.
●
Local Mode: for accessing the built-in clock and timer functions of the display unit;
entered by pressing LOCAL at some terminals; default mode at some idle terminals.
●
Program Mode: for supporting the Program feature and storing Repertory Dialing,
Flex DSS, and Personal Speed Dialing numbers; entered by moving the PROGRAM
switch to its “P” position (except on SLACs) or by dialing access code #4 (at any
display set).
General Rules for Normal Mode
●
The display tracks, character by character, whatever a user enters from the dial pad
buttons. Entries that exceed the capacity of Screen 1 automatically overflow to
Screen 2; when this occurs, a continuation symbol “-” appears in position 1 of
Screen 2.
— If dialed characters form a valid Personal Dial Code (PDC), Data Dial Code
(DDC), or Direct Group Calling (DGC) access code, the Display ID from the
system’s integrated directory is shown.
— If dialed characters form a valid feature access code requiring additional input
(such as for Account Code Entry), a feature prompt is displayed: the
additional input is tracked character by character.
— If dialed characters form a valid Personal Speed Dialing code, the number
stored under the code is displayed; if no number is stored. NO
INFORMATION is displayed.
●
The user can alternate between Screen 1 and Screen 2 by pressing the SCROLL
button. Pressing SCROLL has no effect if Screen 2 is empty.
●
Any information stored by the terminal user (Repertory Dialing numbers, Personal
Speed Dialing numbers, etc.) will be displayed when the feature is used. Any
information stored by the System Administrator [Automatic Route Selection (ARS)
2-161
FEATURES AND SERVICES
routing information, System Speed Dialing numbers, etc.] is not displayed to the
terminal user.
●
Displays for redirected/coverage and returning/third-party calls have the following
formats:
— Screen 1 contains either information about the called party (usually a station
or DGC group) or a feature descriptor that explains why the call has come to
this station (for example, PARK RTN or NIGHT SERVICE).
— Screen 2 always contains information about the calling party (the person who
initiated the call and usually the person on the line when the display station
user answers the call).
●
Generally, if the System 25 acts on a call without the display terminal user having
caused the action, the result is not displayed. For example, if a call is forwarded,
there is no indication of forwarding on the caller’s display; this also applies to calls
that are picked up, sent to coverage, parked, unparked, etc.
— Exceptions: Conference/bridging indication of the number of parties on a call;
exclusion indication when excluded from a call.
●
Generally, if the System 25 redirects a call away from a display terminal, the display
does not present this information. For example, when a call is picked up by another
terminal, the called terminal does not display this action.
— Exceptions: If a call to a terminal goes to coverage, that terminal’s display
has a “c” in position 16 of Screen 1; if a call is forwarded to an outside
number, the display flashes “F” and the forwarded-to number.
●
A call-information display will remain on the screen unless one of the following
actions occur:
— The display terminal user presses another call appearance button.
— The user presses another button that causes a system action and/or has
display support.
— The call disconnects.
— The user leaves Normal Mode.
— The user changes switchhook status (from off-hook to on-hook, or vice
versa).
— A call arrives while Automatic Incoming Call Identification is active.

Standard Call Displays
The following basic displays illustrate the arrangement of information on the screen(s) for
some of the most common types of calls.
●
Origination or Reception of Inside Calls
When a display telephone set user places or receives an inside call, the other party’s
extension number appears in positions 1-4 and name (if administered) in positions 614. Queue information appears in position 16; this field applies only to SLAC
operations and DGC queues, but is reserved on all displays.
Screen 1

The displays generated for calls placed from System Access, Personal Line, and
Pooled Facility buttons do not identify the type button used. The trunk name is not
displayed.
●
Reception of Outside Calls
When a display set user receives an outside (trunk) call, the administered Display ID
for the trunk appears. For Direct Inward Dialing (DID) and dial-in tie trunks only, the
extension number of the called station also appears.

Account Code Entry
When a user activates the Account Code Entry feature by dialing ✶ 0 or pressing
ACCT ENTRY, the system displays the prompt ACCT?.
As the user enters the account code, the digits are displayed to the right of the
prompt. If the number of digits exceeds 9, the system automatically scrolls to Screen
2; the continuation character “-” and the remaining digits appear on Screen 2.
The prompt and digits remain displayed until one of the following occurs:
— The user enters either “#” or the administered number of code digits.
— The user restarts the Account Code Entry feature by dialing ✶ 0 or pressing
ACCT ENTRY again, to correct an erroneous entry.

Reminder
When a user receives this signal, the display format is the same as when the call was
originally placed, except that idle descriptor “I” appears in position 1. Number and
name fields are displaced to the right.
●
Callback Queuing
Before this feature is invoked, the display shows the standard format for origination
of an inside or outside call. When callback queuing goes into effect for the call, the
display updates to CALL QUEUED. If the user cancels queuing, the display is
QUEUE CANCELED. If the queuing attempt is denied, QUEUE DENlED appears.
When a station receives callback, indicating that the called facility is now available.
the display shows the same information seen before queuing, except that queue
descriptor “Q” appears in position 1, displacing the number and name fields to the
right. Once the user answers the callback, “Q” is removed.
●
Calls to the Attendant
The default name associated with PDC “0” is ATTENDANT. A different name can be
assigned, if desired.
●
Conference/Bridging
Call descriptor “ ^ ” appears in position 15 of Screen 1 of non-SLAC positions for
calls containing more than two active parties; position 16 contains the actual number
of conferees or bridgers. The number of conferees is displayed at each terminal in a
conference or bridged call and is updated as the status changes.
Screen 1

DGC Queue Field
A logged-in Direct Group Calling (DGC) group member can view the number of calls
waiting to be serviced by the group. The display is continuously updated for all
members. A digit, 0 through 9 or “!” for 10 or more, appears in position 16. DGC
queue values are not displayed at a SLAC assigned to a DGC group; the attendant’s
display always contains the number of calls waiting in the attendant queue.

Transfer
At a station receiving a transferred call, the transfer descriptor “T” is displayed in
position 1 before the transfer is completed. The transferring party’s number and
name are also shown.
Screen 1
T785 Jones,B
After the transfer is completed, “T” is removed and the display at the transferred-to
station reverts to a standard incoming call format; information about the transferred
party is displayed.
Note:
If the transferring station does not have a display and the transferred
party is on an outside trunk, the name of the trunk, not the originally
dialed digits, is displayed.
Automatic Incoming Call Identification
This subfeature allows a display set user to automatically receive the identification display for
a new incoming call while busy on another call. Any existing display is temporarily removed,
and the new information is flashed on Screen 1. The display presented by this feature has
the same format as the display for an incoming call at an idle station.
The automatic display flashes only once for a given incoming call and appears when the call
first rings. If the System Access or Bridged Access button has delayed ringing, the display is
delayed also; if the appearance button is administered not to ring, automatic display is
suppressed. The automatic display is replaced by another simultaneously incoming call
display or by reinstatement of the original active display. If the user wishes to examine the
call information again, the Inspection Mode must be entered. When administered for a
station, Automatic Incoming Call Identification operates only in Normal Mode, but does not
operate while the user is off-hook and dialing digits. Automatic Incoming Call Identification
does not revolve use of the Inspection Mode. It is administrable on an individual display set
basis but is not supported on the SLAC.
2-168
Display
Considerations
The Display feature provides valuable call information with a minimum of effort on the part of
the voice terminal user.
Interactions
The following features interact with Display Capabilities.
Attendant Console, Direct Trunk: Display capabilities are not supported for this type of
console.
Bridging of System Access Buttons: All stations sharing a bridged appearance—that is, the
principal station and the bridging station(s)—and having ringing enabled for the appearance
will receive standard call information display on incoming calls. After one station answers
the call, the bridging station continues to display the call information until the user receives
or places another call, the original call ends, or the other station invokes Exclusion.
A bridged appearance user with delayed ringing does not receive incoming call information
until ringing starts.
Any station having a bridged appearance can examine the active call information for the
appearance by using the Inspect feature, unless Exclusion has been invoked.
If a user at a principal station or a bridging station places a call on a bridged button,
outgoing call information is displayed only at the calling station. Other stations sharing the
appearance can use the Inspect feature to display the call information.
A user having a bridged appearance can bridge onto a call being originated at a bridged
station. In general, the bridging station receives the same call display as the bridged station,
but only after dialing has been completed. Conference information is generated and
displayed at bridged and bridging stations.
When a user attempts to either bridge onto or Inspect a call, where Exclusion has been
invoked by another active party on this call, the screen display shows EXCLUDED.
Callback Queuing: If a user with Automatic Incoming Call ID is off-hook when a callback
attempt is made, the display will not flash the callback call’s information. However, this
information is accessible via the Inspection feature.
Call Waiting: If a display station has Automatic Incoming Call Identification active, call
waiting tone is accompanied by an incoming call message flashed on the screen. The user
cannot Inspect the message again, because all buttons are busy with other calls. When the
user answers a waiting call, the display updates to standard incoming call format.
Conference: When a queued call is added to a conference, the associated displays are
modified in only one respect; the Q symbol appears as the first character of the queued call
display. When the queued facility becomes available and the call is made, “Q” is removed.
2-169
FEATURES AND SERVICES
When a nondisplay station originates a trunk call, then conferences the call with an inside
display station and drops off the display shows the trunk name only, not the originally-dialed
digits.
Message Waiting Indications: When a display set user dials #90 (or #91) followed by an
extension number to light (or extinguish) a Message LED at some station, the dialed digits
are displayed. A confirmation of Message LED activation or deactivation is not displayed.
Remote Access: Since remote access calls are all incoming trunk calls, the display at the
receiving station has the standard “reception of outside calls” format. The receiving station
has no special indication that this is a remote access call.
A display set user who bridges onto a Personal Line Appearance where a remote access call
is active will have the display updated for conference status.
Administration Requirements
To implement the Display feature, the following administration items are required.
●
Assign display voice terminals.
●
Assign LOCAL, SCROLL, and INSPECT buttons on the non-SLAC sets.
●
Assign DIRECTORY, CALL, and NEXT buttons to all display sets, including SLACs.
●
For each nonattendant display station:
1. Is this a display station? (yes or no; default = no; change to “yes”).
2. Enable Automatic Incoming Call Identification? (yes or no; default = no). If
this feature is desired, and Step 1 was set to “yes,” no action is necessary; if
not desired, set to “no.”
●
Set up the system’s integrated directory, giving a Display ID for PDCs, DDCs, DGC
groups, DID trunk group, other trunks, and attendant (PDC 0).
Hardware Requirements
To have display capability, a station must be equipped with a Model 7305H04C Multiline
Voice Terminal or a Model 7317H01A Multiline Voice Terminal (BIS-34D).

Distinctive Ringing
Distinctive Ringing
Description
This feature allows users to distinguish between different types of incoming calls. The
system provides the following types of ringing:
●
A repeated two-burst tone indicates an outside call or a call extended by the
attendant. The two-burst tone pattern is: 0.4 seconds on, 0.2 seconds off, 0.6
seconds on, and 4.0 seconds off.
●
A repeated one-burst pattern indicates a call from an internal user. The tone is one
second on and three seconds off for multiline voice terminals, and 1.2 seconds on
and 4 seconds off for single-line voice terminals.
●
A “abbreviated alerting” signal (also called single-ring reminder) indicates to the offhook user of a multiline voice terminal that a new call is coming into another call
appearance button. This type of call rings just once, but the associated status LED
continues to flash after the abbreviated alerting stops. The user may place the
current call on hold and answer the incoming call if desired.
●
A single short beep at a voice terminal equipped with the Hands-Free Answer feature
indicates that an incoming inside call has been answered by the terminal. Depending
on the status of the terminal’s HFAI controls, the user can talk with the caller without
lifting the handset.
●
Priority ringing is a repeated pattern of two short rings followed by one long ring. It
indicates (1) that a data terminal has used the Third-Party Call Setup feature to
originate a voice call from the voice terminal where this ringing is heard, or (2) that a
queued-for facility is now available and the user can go off hook for the call to be
completed.
Considerations
Distinctive Ringing enables a user to handle each call in an appropriate manner.
Abbreviated alerting notifies the busy called party of an incoming call without the annoying
distraction of continued ringing.
Distinctive ringing is not available at Extended Stations; all incoming calls are signaled by
standard one-burst ringing, repeated.
Interactions
The following feature interacts with Distinctive Ringing.
Coverage: Covering stations receive distinctive ringing, depending on the origin of the call
receiving coverage.
2-171
FEATURES AND SERVICES
End-To-End Signaling
Description
This feature allows multiline voice terminals to send touch-tone (DTMF) signals over the DDD
network and allows single-line and multiline users to send touch-tones over dial pulse trunks.
The 7300H series voice terminals do not generate touch-tones when a dial pad button is
pressed. The End-to-End Signaling feature provides for the conversion of signals generated
by these terminals to touch-tones.
Dialed numbers from multiline voice terminals are toned out for a default duration of 60 ms
followed by 60 ms of silence (administrable). Dialed numbers to single-line voice ports are
toned out for a default duration of 60 ms followed by 60 ms of silence (administrable).
When using dial pulse trunks, End-to-End signaling is invoked by dialing “#” after the last
digit of the called number or waiting for about 10 seconds after dialing the last digit (see the
Interdigit Timeouts feature description). All subsequent dial pad button presses generate
touch-tones on the outside line.
Considerations
End-to-End Signaling permits stations to access network services that require touch-tone
signals.
Interactions
The following features interact with End-To-End Signaling.
Command Mode And Data Terminal Dialing: occasionally it is necessary to send additional
tones to the remote endpoint after a data connection has been established. A mark
character “$” is embedded in the dialing sequence to indicate to call processing that
additional tones must be sent prior to insertion of a conversion resource (pooled modem)
into the connection. The mark character “$” is used to indicate that all the following digits
are for end-to-end signaling. This character is used to mark the boundary between the digits
dialed to reach the distant endpoint and the digits used by the distant endpoint after it
answers.
Repertory Dialing: Repertory Dialing can be programmed on the 7300H series voice
terminals. End-to-End Signaling works properly with this feature.
Speed Dialing: #8 must be stored to start End-to-End Signaling
Virtual Facilities: #8 must be stored to start End-to-End Signaling.
2-172
Exclusion
Exclusion
Description
This feature allows multiline voice terminal users to keep other users with appearances of
the same Personal Line from listening in on or interrupting their calls. It can also be used in
a Principal Station/Bridging Station arrangement by either party to exclude other inside
stations from a private call. Exclusion allows users to exclude the attendant and other
stations from an existing or held call, or to drop other System 25 users from a call.
The EXCLUSION button status and I-use LEDs are lighted steadily when the feature is
invoked. When an excluded call is placed on hold, the EXCLUSION button’s I-use LED goes
dark and the status LED winks with the LED of the held line.
Exclusion can be applied to only one call at a time. Once Exclusion is invoked on a call it will
remain active until the user either presses the button a second time or disconnects the call.
Considerations
Exclusion allows the sharing of a Personal Line or a bridged System Access (SA)
appearance by several users while retaining privacy for each one.
Pressing the EXCLUSION button at any time during a call, regardless of how the call was
originated, drops all other inside stations and tones. An inside party can be included on a
private call by pressing EXCLUSION first and then adding the inside party.
Interactions
The following features interact with Exclusion.
Automatic Intercom: Any attempt to activate Exclusion while active on an Automatic
Intercom call will drop the other party.
Bridging of System Access Buttons: If a principal or bridging station presses the
EXCLUSION button during a call, all other internal stations on the call will be dropped. In
addition, Exclusion will prevent any other internal station from bridging onto the call.
Callback Queuing: Pressing the EXCLUSION button does not drop a queued call. The
EXCLUSION button’s status LED tracks the status LED of the associated call button. For
example, on a callback attempt, the EXCLUSION LED will also change from winking to
flashing. If the EXCLUSION button is tracking a conference on hold, it will stay winking with
the rest of the conference. When the callback attempt is answered, the EXCLUSION LED
lights steadily to track all the conference buttons.
Conference: When Exclusion is invoked, all other inside parties will be dropped. If a private
conference including inside parties is desired, the user should activate Exclusion first and
then set up the conference.
2-173
FEATURES AND SERVICES
Coverage: If a coverage receiver invokes Exclusion after answering a coverage call, all other
terminals (including the attendant and the covered station) are excluded. The covered user
cannot enter the call until Exclusion is pressed a second time by the covering user.
Display: When a display station attempts to enter a personal line or bridged appearance that
has the Exclusion feature in effect, EXCLUDED is displayed.
Hold: A call can be placed on hold after Exclusion is invoked. The I-use LED will go dark;
the status LED of the line appearance button and the Exclusion button will wink.

Expert Mode
Expert Mode
Description
Expert Mode is an enhancement to the Command Mode feature that provides an alternative
method of performing the full range of Command Mode functions. By eliminating the display
of menus and allowing multiple commands to be entered on a single line, Expert Mode lends
itself to computer-driven instructions. Individual users who are very familiar with Command
Mode operations may also find it useful.
When Expert Mode is activated, a system administrable prompt is displayed that can consist
of up to nine characters (the quote character and RETURN are not allowed). Command: is
the system default prompt. As with dialing in Command Mode, the ASCII characters
backspace (BS or CTRL-H) or underscore (_) may be used to cancel a previously entered
character. When in Expert Mode, each line must be terminated with a keyboard RETURN.
Users of Expert Mode must follow the exact tree structure of Command Mode (both up and
down the menu tree) as shown in Figure 2-62. However, instead of moving one level at a
time, Expert Mode allows the user to move up or down several menu levels at once. This
can be accomplished by entering, on a single command line, the capitalized letters that
define the sequence of menu selections desired. For example, to change data port panty
from the tree’s entry level, the user types OCPE and presses RETURN. This requests that
parity be set to “even”, but does NOT enable the change. To enable this change (see Figure
2-62), the user must now type XE and press RETURN.
Activating Expert Mode
A user can move back and forth between Command Mode and Expert Mode by typing “!”
(exclamation mark). For ports on a Data Line circuit pack (Data Line Card, DLC), either
Command Mode or Expert Mode is presented at the start of a new session, depending upon
the port’s setting at the termination of the previous session. Thus, if a data session ends in
Expert Mode, the next session will begin in Expert Mode. However, calls from an AT&T
STARLAN NETWORK to System 25 will always begin a new session in Command Mode.
An alternative command, “>”, can be used to guarantee entry into Expert Mode. Conversely,
guaranteed entry into Command Mode can be accomplished with the command “>!”
followed by RETURN. These commands are especially useful for computer-driven DLC
endpoints that might otherwise have difficulty detecting whether a new session had been
started in Expert Mode or Command Mode.
Making a Data Call
To make a data call from the entry level (see Figure 2-62), the user enters “D” following the
system prompt and then the data endpoint number. For example:
Command: D9,5553822
“Command:” on the above line is the default system prompt while in Expert Mode. The user
enters all data following the prompt.
2-175
FEATURES AND SERVICES
If the user enters “D” and then a RETURN, the system will prompt for the data endpoint
number as follows:
Command: D
DIAL:
The user must then enter the digits required to complete the call.
Activating the Third-Party Call Setup Feature
The following provides an abbreviated method of using the Third-Party Call Setup feature
while in the Expert Mode. A complete description of this feature is provided later in this
manual.
To activate the Third-Party Call Setup feature and place a call, the user enters numbers
using the following format:
Command: V{Destination} F {Source}
The V on the above command line provides access to <Voice call> from the Command
Mode entry level menu. The balance of the dialed number is composed of destination and
source numbers, as described in the Third-Party Call Setup feature description.
User Changeable Options
Refer to the User Changeable Options feature (discussed later) for a detailed description of
the feature. The menus selected in the following discussion are shown in Figure 2-62.
To view the current Options Table (starting at the Command Mode entry level), the user
simply enters “OV” following the system prompt, as follows:
Command: OV
To change the current Options Table (starting at the entry level), the user enters “OC” as
follows:
Command: OC
Entering “OC” places the user at the Change Options level. At this point the user may
change options by entering the appropriate letter to indicate the required option (S for
Speed, P for Parity, M for Mismatch, etc.) followed by the desired setting(s). Only one
Option is allowed per line. If more than one setting is selected for an Option that can only
accept one setting, call processing recognizes only the last entry.
2-176
Expert Mode
Examples:
Command: S +1200 -300 +4800
Add 1200 and 4800 baud to the available
speeds, remove 300 baud
Command: PE
Change Parity to Even
Command: MY
Change Mismatch to Yes
If the user enters an invalid Option or setting, the system responds with INVALID OPTION and the
entry is ignored.
Once all changes have been entered, the user enters XE to enable the options.
Considerations
Expert Mode is primarily for use by computer-driven endpoints that can store command sequences
for automated use. However, a user experienced in accessing Command Mode menus may find
Expert Mode to be a faster alternative when operating at slower speeds, since the time required to
display each menu and to input separate commands is essentially deleted.
interactions
The following feature interacts with Expert Mode.
Command Mode: Refer to the Command Mode feature description for a detailed description of
Command Mode and of the various menu items.
Administration Requirements
The data port associated with a data terminal can be administered to allow the user to change
options when in Command or Expert Mode. Otherwise, the user may view the current options but
not change them.
The default prompt for Expert Mode (Command:) maybe changed via system administration.

Features and Services
Extended Stations
Description
Allows single-line voice terminals to be located at distances from 2000 to 17,500 feet from the
systems cabinets.
Extended stations have the same feature capability as other voice terminals. These stations count
as an outside party on conference calls.
Transmit and receive levels are increased at extended stations for conferencing.
Considerations
A single-line voice terminal must be administered as an extended station before this feature is
activated.
Extended stations will always receive standard (that is, single) ring for calls; System 25 will not send
distinctive ringing.
Interactions
The following feature interacts with Extended Stations.
Conference: An Extended Station counts as one of the two outside parties allowed on conference
calls.
Administration Requirements
Single-Line Voice Terminal Port
●
Assign port on Analog Line (TN742 or TN746) CP.
●
Make This An Extended Station (yes or no; default = no).
Hardware Requirements
The extended Station must be a single-line voice terminal. It requires a port on a TN742 Analog Line
CP.

External Alerts
External Alerts
Description
External Alerts provide standard station ringing at locations away from the called stations.
This feature can be used to activate an external alerting device such as a bell.
External Alerts supports the Trunk-Answer-from-Any-Station (TAAS) form of Night Service.
The feature can be used in conjunction with voice terminals located in noisy environments
and large areas such as warehouses, etc. The alerting device is activated whenever the
associated station is alerted.
A Supplemental Alert Adapter installed on a hybrid station allows the terminal user to
transfer incoming ringing to an alerting device located in some remote area. When the user
goes to the area, the alerting device rings for incoming calls to the user’s normal station.
Considerations
External Alerting enhances user ability to recognize incoming calls. Noisy environments, large
areas, and outside locations are candidates for external alerting devices.
Interactions
The following features interact with External Alerts.
Manual Signaling: Manual Signaling will not activate an external alerting device.
Night Service: When the system is in Trunk-Answer-from-Any-Station (TAAS) Night Service
mode, an incoming attendant-seeking call will activate the Night Service alerting device.
Power Failure Transfer: When the system is in the power failure transfer mode, the external
alerting devices are disabled.
Administration Requirements
Special Feature Port:
●
An external alert operating as the endpoint device on a station line requires a port
assignment on a ZTN78 Tip Ring Line or TN742 Analog Line CP. (Specify special
feature port type = 253.) An external alerting device controlled from a Supplemental
Alert Adapter operates on the same line as the associated terminal and requires no
additional port assignment.
●
Specify the PDC of the associated station (or 0 if alert is used with TAAS Night
Service).
2-179
FEATURES AND SERVICES
Hardware
Requirements
Order line-activated alerting devices (e.g., bells) as required.
An alerting device operating on a line separate from a terminal requires a port interface on a
ZTN78 or TN742. Refer to Figure 2-26 for connection information.
Order the Supplemental Alert Adapter (PEC 2301-SAA) for controlling a remote alerting
device. A Supplemental Alert Adapter is installed in the line between the port CP and the
user’s MERLIN System terminal. The line requires a ZTN79 ATL Line CP. Figure 2-27
contains connection details.
Descriptions of the SIP (Station Interconnect Panel), TAE (Trunk Access Equipment), and
associated cables and adapters are provided under the heading “Connectivity” in Section 4.

FEATURES AND SERVICES
Following
Description
This feature allows users who are away from their own voice terminals to receive their calls
at other inside voice terminals. Following is functionally equivalent to internal Forwarding.
In order to have their calls follow them, users sign in their PDCs at the terminals where they
will be located temporarily. A call coming into the “home” terminal is redirected to the
terminal where the PDC is signed in (the “away” terminal). Signing in a PDC at a terminal
automatically signs the PDC out at any other terminal. PDCs always have an associated
home terminal. If a PDC is not signed in anywhere, calls to the PDC will ring at the home
terminal.
Signing in a FPDC automatically signs the FPDC out at any other voice terminal. However,
signing out a FPDC does not sign in the FPDC at another terminal. Calls to FPDCs not
signed in at any terminal may be directed to the attendant (administrable and strongly
recommended).
To sign in a PDC, the user goes off-hook at the away terminal, enters “ ✶ ✶ ” and then the
home PDC twice. The PDC sign-out procedure is similar; after going off-hook and receiving
dial tone, the user enters “ ✶ ✶ ” followed by the home PDC and then by a “0.” A “ ✶ ✶ 0 ”
entered at a voice terminal will sign out all PDCs and FPDCs signed in at that voice terminal,
except for the PDC normally assigned to it. Confirmation Tone is returned to a user who
correctly completes one of these procedures.
The call types or features listed below are voice terminal oriented (associated with stations
rather than PDCs) and do not follow a user who signs in at another terminal.

Following
Calls Placed to A PDC:
Calls to a PDC that is not signed in at an “away” terminal are directed to the home terminal
and receive that terminal’s normal hunting or coverage treatment.
If a PDC is signed in at an away terminal, calls placed to the PDC fall into one of the
following categories:
●
The general case— calls placed from terminals other than the away terminal
●
A special case— call placed from the away terminal.
(1) The General Case: The call will first be directed to the away voice terminal. Ringing will
occur at the away terminal if it is an on-hook single-line voice terminal or if it is a multiline
voice terminal with an idle System Access button.
A call unanswered at the away terminal will be directed back to the home terminal unless one
of the following busy conditions exists at the home terminal: (1) it is a multiline terminal with
all System Access buttons busy and with no idle coverage receiver or (2) it is a single-line
voice terminal that is off-hook, has no idle coverage receiver, and has no idle hunt-to station.
While either of these busy conditions exists at the home terminal, the call will not return to
the home terminal. Instead, it will continue to ring at the away terminal until answered or
timed out.
If either of the above two busy conditions ends at the home terminal while the call is waiting
at the away terminal, the call will be directed back to the home terminal. If the call is sent
back to the home terminal, it can be answered or it can receive the terminal’s hunting or
coverage treatment. The coverage treatment given to calls that are returning from an away
terminal differs in two respects from the treatment provided to calls initially directed to the
home terminal. First, the home terminal and its coverage station receive ringing
simultaneously, rather than having the coverage ringing delayed. Second, coverage terminals
will ring for calls returning to the home stations even if the coverage ring options of the home
terminal are “no ring.” Both of these coverage modifications expedite the answering of calls
that are returning to the home station from an away station.
Once the call is directed back to the home terminal, it is removed from the away terminal.
This is true even if the away terminal was busy but subsequently became idle after the call
was sent back to the home terminal.
(2) A Special Case: A call to a PDC placed from the same station where it is signed in will be
directed to the PDC’s home terminal.
Calls Placed to a FPDC:
When a valid FPDC is dialed, the call will be directed to the terminal where the FPDC is
signed in and will be provided the coverage treatment administered for that terminal. If the
FPDC is not signed in anywhere and if the attendant position is administered to handle these
calls, then the call will be directed to the attendant position. However, if the FPDC call was
placed from the attendant position, then it will not be redirected to the attendant but will
2-183
FEATURES AND SERVICES
instead be provided Reorder Tone. Finally, if the FPDC is not signed in, and if the attendant
position is not administered to handle these calls, then the calling party will receive Reorder
Tone.
For non-DID calls if an invalid FPDC is dialed, then the calling party will receive Reorder
Tone. If a DID call does not match any assigned number in the dialing plan, it will be
directed to the attendant or to Reorder Tone, as administered.
Considerations
Following provides maximum flexibility to system users who are away from their voice
terminals. In addition, visitors can receive calls by signing in an assigned FPDC.
For more information, see the “Personal Dial Code (PDC)” feature description.
Interactions
The following features interact with Following.
Bridging of System Access Buttons: Sign-in and sign-out procedures can be performed at
the destination station on either a System Access (SA) button or a Bridged Access (BA)
button. However, since Following calls always arrive on SA buttons, the destination station
must have at least one SA button.
Following calls arriving at a principal SA button are accessible at BA buttons on the bridging
station.
Callback Queuing: Calls that follow are queued on the busy “away” station, not the “home”
station.
Callback attempts to the originator do not follow.
Coverage: Calls to a signed-in FPDC receive the coverage of that terminal. Unanswered
calls to a PDC at an away terminal return to the home terminal and receive the home
terminal’s coverage treatment; they do not receive the away terminal’s coverage.
Forwarding: Either Following or Forwarding, but not both, can be active at a given time for a
particular PDC. Activation of one feature while the other is in effect overrides the other
feature.
Remote Access: Remote Access callers cannot use Following. However, Remote Access
callers can activate Forwarding; see the “Forwarding” feature description for information on
this capability.
2-184
Forwarding
Forwarding
Description
This feature allows users to direct their incoming calls to another (forwarded-to) voice
terminal where they will be located temporarily. Calls can be forwarded to inside stations or
to locations outside System 25. Figure 2-28 is a simplified block diagram of this feature.
FORWARDING
STATION
CALLING
STATION
Figure 2-28.
FORWARDED-TO
STATION
Stages of Call Forwarding
Forwarding is similar to the Following feature. Both features enable users to answer their
calls at another terminal. The basic differences between these features are as follows:
●
Users activate Forwarding at their own stations; the forwarded-to station can be
inside or outside System 25.
●
Users activate Following at the “away” station, which must be inside System 25.
The procedures for activating the two features are different also. Refer to the “Following”
description for complete coverage of that feature.
Forwarding Calls to Stations Inside System 25
The user activates Forwarding to an inside station by dialing feature access code #70 and
then the forwarded-to extension number. If the activation is successful, the user receives
confirmation tone; if the attempt fails, the user hears reorder tone.
The user who forwarded calls to an inside station can deactivate Forwarding in either of
these ways:
●
By signing in at the user’s own (the forwarding) station after returning there; this
procedure consists of dialing “ ✶ ✶ ” and then the user’s PDC twice.
●
By signing out at the forwarded-to station before returning to the forwarding station;
this procedure consists of dialing “ ✶ ✶ ” followed by the user’s own PDC and then
“0”.
Calls forwarded to an inside station cannot forward again from the forwarded-to station.
A call unanswered at a forwarded-to inside station returns to the forwarding station after the
administered number of rings; if the forwarding station has Coverage, the call redirects. A
call forwarded to a busy inside station rings the forwarding station immediately; the call
returns ringback to the caller unless the caller has automatic Callback Queuing or Call
2-185
FEATURES AND SERVICES
Waiting is administered at the forwarded-to station.
Forwarding Calls to Locations Outside System 25
The user activates Forwarding to an outside station in one of the following ways:
●
By dialing feature access code #70, the single-digit ARS access code, and the
forward-to number, then hanging up after hearing confirmation tone.
●
By dialing feature access code #70, a pooled facility (trunk) access code, and the
forward-to number, then hanging up after hearing confirmation tone.
The forward-to numbers for outside calls must be dialed in one of the following ways:
●
7
digits, “1” plus 7 digits, 10 digits, or “1” plus 10 digits.
●
A Speed Dialing code, such as #20.
●
By adding # at the end of a code of more than 4 digits and less than 10 digits.
●
By letting the system time-out after entering a code of more than 4 digits and less
than 10 digits.
If the forwarding activation attempt is unsuccessful, the user hears reorder tone.
Forwarding to an outside station is deactivated by signing in at the user’s own (the
forwarding) station inside System 25. The procedure consists of dialing “ ✶ ✶ ” and then the
user’s PDC twice. No procedure exists for signing out at an outside forwarded-to station.
No matter which ring option (“no ring,” “immediate ring,” or “delayed ring”) is administered
for the forwarding station’s SA buttons, the station will receive an abbreviated alert (singlering reminder) when a call is forwarded outside.
Forwarding to an outside location is enabled or disabled on a per-station basis through
system administration. In addition, forwarding calls to outside stations is limited by any
calling restrictions administered for the forwarding station. An outward-restricted station, for
example, cannot forward calls out of the system. Toll and facility access restrictions can
also prevent call forwarding.
A call forwarded to an outside station that is busy or does not answer is treated like any
network call; the caller receives busy tone or ringback. The call will not return to the
forwarding station. In certain circumstances, incoming outside calls that are forwarded to
outside locations may encounter an unusual sequence of tones. For example, the caller may
hear ringing, a pause, then busy tone.
Remote Access Forwarding
Forwarding to an outside number from a System 25 station can be activated by a Remote
Access user calling into the system on a dedicated Remote Access trunk or on a shared
trunk while Night Service is in effect; the caller must use a barrier code. Remote Access
Forwarding to other inside stations is not allowed.
2-186
Forwarding
After dialing the Remote Access trunk and the barrier code, the caller receives second dial
tone. The caller then enters access code #70 and the PDC of the forwarding station;
confirmation tone followed by silence is returned if a valid PDC was dialed. Finally, the
remote caller dials the outside forward-to number and hears confirmation tone.
To cancel Remote Access Forwarding, the remote caller repeats the activation procedure but
substitutes “0” for the outside forward-to number.
Considerations
Forwarding helps System 25 users avoid missing important calls while they are absent from
their “home” terminals. It complements coverage features by allowing users to answer their
own calls remotely rather than have other users take their messages. Calls can be
forwarded from all types of voice terminals except rotary-dial sets.
A forwarded-to multiline voice terminal must have at least one System Access (SA) button, If
a user attempts to forward calls to a station without a SA button, reorder tone is returned,
and the attempt is blocked.
In general, the only calls that forward from a terminal are internal calls, transferred or
attendant-extended outside calls, Remote Access trunk calls, and DID calls. At multiline
terminals, such calls ring at SA buttons.
The following call types or features are station-oriented (rather than PDC-oriented) and do
not forward:
●
Automatic Intercom calls
●
Callback calls when a queued-for facility becomes available
●
Calls ringing on Bridged Access (BA) buttons
●
Coverage calls
●
Directed Night Service calls
●
DGC Group calls
●
Manual Signaling
●
Message Waiting indications
●
Outward/Toll
●
Personal Line calls
●
Returning calls.
Restriction
An attendant’s PDC can serve as a forward-to point for other stations. Calls placed to the
attendant’s PDC can be forwarded by the attendant.
2-187
FEATURES AND SERVICES
A given station can receive forwarded calls from any number of other stations.
Note:
When incoming trunk calls are forwarded to outside locations, severe
attenuation of the voice signal may occur.
Interactions
The following features interact with Forwarding.
Account Code Entry, Forced: Stations with this feature administered for all calls cannot
forward calls to any outside numbers. Stations with this feature administered for “dial 0 or
1” calls can forward calls to any outside number except for “dial 0 or 1” numbers.
Attendant Call Extending: Calls extended by an attendant to a forwarding station will be
given normal Forwarding treatment.
Bridging of System Access Buttons: Since forwarding is a station-oriented feature, it can be
activated and deactivated for a forwarding principal station only at a System Access button
on that station. If forwarding is activated at a Bridged Access button on a bridging station, it
affects calls to that station only.
Callback Queuing: Calls that forward are queued for the busy “away” station, not the
“home” station.
Callback attempts to the originator do not forward.
Conference: If one of the called parties for a conference is a forwarding station, its
forwarded-to station will be the conference facility.
If a conference call is transferred to a forwarding station, it will be given normal Forwarding
treatment.
Coverage: When a station has both Coverage and Forwarding in effect, calls are routed first
to the forwarded-to station. If not answered there within an administered number of rings,
calls ring at the forwarding and coverage stations and stop ringing at the forwarded-to
station.
When forwarding to an outside number, coverage may only occur in one case: the forwarding
had been activated using a trunk group’s facility access code (not ARS), the forwarding
cannot be completed because the trunk group is busy, and the forwarding station is not
busy. In this case, the call will ring at the forwarding station and its coverage stations.
Direct Station Selection (DSS): DSS or FLEX DSS cannot be used when forwarding calls
(that is, dialing #70 and pressing a DSS or FLEX DSS button for the forwarded-to station is
not a valid procedure).
2-188
Forwarding
Display: Reception of a forwarded call follows the standard format for a redirected call, with the call
type descriptor “f” in position 16 of Screen 2.
A forwarding display station receives abbreviated alert when a call is forwarded to an outside
number; the display is flashed on Screen 1 only. The new forwarding descriptor “F” appears in
position 1, followed by the digits of the outside number.
Screen 1
F912325552365
Following: Either Following or Forwarding, but not both, can be active at a given time for a
particular PDC. Activation of one feature while the other is in effect overrides the other feature.
Forwarding a SLAC’s PDC causes all SLAC calls to be forwarded (PDC and “ø”).
Remote Access: Remote Access calls to a System 25 station that has Forwarding activated will
forward like any other incoming calls to the station.
Remote Access callers can activate Forwarding to outside numbers at System 25 stations. Refer to
“Remote Access Forwarding” earlier in this feature description.
Repertory Dialing: The forwarding activation and deactivation sequences (or portions of them) can
be stored on REP DIAL buttons.
Send All Calls: Forwarding supersedes Send All Calls. A call forwarded from a station with Send
All Calls activated will not go to Coverage or to bridging stations unless the call is not answered at
the forwarded-to station and returns. After returning, the call routes according to the Send All Calls
feature.
Station Hunting: Calls forwarded to a station in a hunt group will hunt and ring an idle station if the
forwarded-to station is busy. If all members of the group are busy and the forwarded-to station has
Call Waiting, the caller hears special ringback until the forwarded-to station becomes available to
answer the call.
A call to a forwarding station in a hunt group will first ring at the forwarded-to station. After an
administered number of rings, the call returns to the hunt group; if all members of the hunt group
are busy, the call continues to ring at the forwarded-to station until a hunt group member becomes
available.
Station Message Detail Recoding (SMDR): When a call is successfully forwarded to an outside
number, the call record will contain the forwarding station and forwarded-to station numbers if
Forwarding was activated by an inside station. If Forwarding was activated remotely, the SMDR call
record will contain the incoming trunk number, the PDC of the forwarding station, and the barrier
code number. For more details, see the “Station Message Detail Recoding” feature description.
Transfer: Calls transferred by TRANSFER button operation to a forwarding station will be given
normal Forwarding treatment.

Hands-Free Answer on Intercom (HFAI)
Hands-Free Answer on Intercom (HFAI)
Description
This feature allows the following voice terminals to provide hands-free answer service on
eligible incoming calls; each terminal must have Automatic Answer (AUTO ANS) assigned to
a flexible button.
●
BIS (7305H03B, 7305H04C, 7313H01A, 7314H01A, 7316H01A, and 7317H01A) and
HFAI (7309H01A); these sets provide full service without requiring adjuncts.
●
10-Button (7303H01B), 34-Button (7305H01B), and 34-Button Deluxe (7305H02B)
equipped with a Hands-Free Unit (HFU—a S102A Speakerphone); these
arrangements provide full HFAI service.
●
5-Button (7302H01C) and the 10- and 34-Button sets listed above, not equipped with
an HFU; these arrangements allow callers to “voice announce” their calls, but the
terminal user must use the handset to reply.
Calls Eligible for Hands-Free Service:
●
Inside calls (that is, calls from one System 25 set to another System 25 set using a
System Access, Loop, DSS, or Auto Intercom button).
●
Calls transferred from another System 25 set using the Transfer feature. The
transferring station may pass both inside and outside calls in this way. Note that
calls transferred by the attendant are indistinguishable from calls transferred by any
other station.
Calls Not Eligible for Hands-Free Service:
●
Incoming trunk calls (Personal Line, DID, DGC).
●
Calls extended by an attendant.
BIS and HFAI Voice Terminals
LEDs next to the AUTO ANS button and the HFAI/Mic (HFAI set) or HFAI (BIS set) button
indicate whether the HFAI feature is enabled. The LEDs are turned on and off by pressing
the adjacent buttons. When both the AUTO ANS and HFAI LEDs are on, the set will autoanswer eligible calls.
The HFAI LED will wink (on HFAI sets) or light steadily (BIS sets) during HFAI calls.
The set's response to HFAI-eligible calls depends on the status of the HFAI and AUTO ANS
buttons and LEDs, as follows:
●
If both HFAI and AUTO-ANS LEDs are on:
2-191
FEATURES AND SERVICES
— The set generates a tone burst over its speaker to indicate an incoming call.
— The parties may converse. The called party can speak in a normal voice
toward the set. No other action by the called party is required.
— During the call, the called party can press the HFAI/Mic or MICROPHONE
button to mute the microphone temporarily and prevent the caller from
hearing. Pressing the button again turns the microphone on again.
— The HFAI/BIS user may press the SPEAKER (HFAI set) or the
SPEAKERPHONE (BIS set) button to end the call. If the calling party hangs
up first, this is not necessary.
●
If only the AUTO ANS LED is on:
— The set generates a tone burst over its speaker to indicate an incoming call.
— The set’s speaker turns on and the set “answers” the call.
— Call setup is complete. However, the called party can hear, but not respond
to, the calling party. To respond, the user must lift the handset or press the
HFAI/Mic button on an HFAI set or press the MICROPHONE button on a BIS
set.
— The HFAI/BIS user may press the SPEAKER (HFAI set) or the
SPEAKERPHONE (BIS set) button to end the call. If the calling party hangs
up first, this is not necessary.
●
If only the HFAI LED (or neither LED) is on:
— The HFAI feature is disabled. The call answering procedure is the same as
for a standard MERLIN System set.
If, during a HFAI call, the user decides to pick up the handset, the HFAI/Mic or HFAI LED will
turn off. On a HFAI set, the user is not permitted to revert to hands-free operation.
(Pressing the HFAI button while using the handset will simply disable the HFAI feature for
subsequent calls.) A BIS set user may transfer a call from the handset to the speakerphone
by pressing the SPEAKERPHONE button and hanging up.
Voice Terminals with Speakerphone or Headset Adjuncts
These sets do not have a HFAI button. To turn on the HFAI feature the user simply presses
the AUTO ANS button; the green status LED lights.
After HFAI is activated, operation is exactly the same as for the BIS set except that the
SPEAKERPHONE and MICROPHONE buttons and LEDs are on the HFU.
Note, that the 502B Headset Adapter is required for HFAI operation with a headset (as is
usually desired in ACD operation).
2-192
Hands-Free Answer on Intercom (HFAI)
Voice Terminals without Speakerphone or Headset Adapters
The HFAI feature is activated by pressing the AUTO ANS button. A beep signal announces
an incoming call and the SPEAKER LED lights. A one-way talking link is established from
the caller to the terminal; the user can hear the caller but cannot converse. Lifting the
handset connects the user to the caller.
Considerations
The user of a HFAI equipped station should always deactivate the HFAI feature when leaving
the work area. If this is not done, incoming calls will be unintentionally “answered.”
Interactions
The following features interact with Hands-Free Answer on Intercom.
Bridging of System Access Buttons: If a station has HFAI activated, internal calls arriving at
this station on a System Access button will auto-answer. However, calls arriving at this
station on a Bridged Access button will ring according to the administered ring option and
will not auto-answer.
Coverage: When the HFAI feature is enabled at a set, calls eligible for HFAI service will not
receive coverage because the set will answer them whether the user is present or not.
However, if the attendant uses the Attendant Message Waiting feature to turn on the
Message indicator at the set, the HFAI feature will be disabled (the AUTO ANS LED turns
off), allowing subsequent calls to receive coverage.
Send All Calls: Activating Send All Calls will disable the HFAI feature (the AUTO ANS LED
turns off).
Administration Requirements
Voice Terminal Port:
●
Assign AUTO ANS button.
A 22- or 34-button built-in speakerphone (BIS) voice terminal (with or without display) should
be translated as Type 308 only if a headset adapter will be used with it. Otherwise, such a
terminal should be translated as Type 305.
Hardware Requirements
This feature requires one of the voice terminals or combinations of terminal and adjuncts
listed in the Description.
2-193
FEATURES AND SERVICES
Headset Adapter Adjunct
Description
The headset adapter adjunct is an interface device for connecting a headset to an associated
voice terminal. A headset plugged into the adapter is activated by switches on the adapter.
The terminal operator has the choice of using either the handset or the headset for handling
calls. Turning the headset on and off is equivalent to lifting and hanging up the handset.
Considerations
Use of a headset allows a voice terminal operator to carry on conversations with both hands
free for writing, typing, etc. It is valuable adjunct for high traffic positions such as attendant
consoles.
Use of a headset does not affect normal voice terminal operations in any way.
Interactions
The following feature interacts with Headset Adapter Adjunct.
Speakerphone Adjunct: A voice terminal cannot have both a headset and a speakerphone.
These adjuncts plug into the same jack on the voice terminal.
Administration Requirements
A 22- or 34-button built-in speakerphone (BIS) voice terminal (with or without display) should
be translated as Type 308 only if a headset adapter will be used with it. Otherwise, such a
terminal should be translated as Type 305.
Hardware Requirements
500A/502B Headset Adapters:
The 500A adapter (Figure 2-29) is designed for use with the 12-Button (7203M) MET voice
terminal. The 502B adapter is designed for use with MERLIN System (7300H Series)
terminals (with the exception of the 5-Button and HFAI sets). Most standard commercial
headsets can be used with the adapters. The 502B adapter must be ordered if the user
requires HFAI operation on the headset (i.e., typical ACD/CMS operation).
Each adapter has an “ON/QUIET” button, an “OFF” button, a green indicator lamp, a jack
for a single headset, and a modular keyed 8-wire jack. Each adapter is equipped with an
18-inch connecting cord. Optional cords are available in lengths of 4 and 14 feet.
2-194
Headset Adapter Adjunct
The 500A Headset Adapter is powered locally by a 2012D Transformer, which plugs into a
115V ac receptacle. Power from the transformer is applied to the voice terminal mounting
cord via a 400B2 adapter at the wall jack and conducted to the 500A on its connecting cord.
Refer to “Voice Terminal Adjunct Power Supplies” in Section 4 for additional information.
The 502B Headset Adapter does not require supplemental power, except when used with a
34-Button Deluxe, 22-Button BIS, 34-Button BIS, or BIS with Display voice terminal, or when
located more than 200 feet from the switch.
Detailed headset adapter connection information is provided in the following figures:

Hold
Hold
Description
This feature allows users to temporarily disconnect from one call and either place or answer
another call. A single-line voice terminal user can place only one call on hold and must
remain off-hook to retain the held call. A multiline voice terminal user can place as many
calls on hold as it has lines and can hang up without losing held calls.
Single-line users can place a call on hold by flashing the switchhook (the user receives
Confirmation Tone). The user can then dial another party or return to the held call by
flashing the switchhook twice. The first switchhook flash sets up a conference call, the
second flash drops the third party: if System 25 Dial Tone, Busy Tone, or Reorder Tone (but
not Ringback Tone) was obtained when the third party was dialed, a single switchhook flash
will drop the tone and return the user to the held party.
Multiline voice terminal users can press HOLD and subsequently replace the handset or call
another party without losing the held call. The status LED associated with the held call winks
on all terminals with an appearance of the call, except in the case of a conference call. In
this case, the wink indication is given only to the party who invoked hold. To return to the
held call the multiline user goes off-hook, then presses the call appearance button
associated with the held call.
Considerations
The Hold feature allows voice terminal users to handle several calls simultaneously. For
single-line sets, placing a call on hold is the first step in transferring or conferencing the call.
Interactions
The following features interact with Hold
Attendant Console: The Attendant does not receive hold indications for lines (trunks)
appearing on the Console unless he/she placed the call on hold.
Bridging of System Access Buttons: A principal or bridging station user who is active on a
bridged call can hold the call by pressing the HOLD button. If there is still a bridging or
principal station active on the call, the green status LEDs of all associated System Access
(SA) and Bridged Access (BA) buttons remain lighted steadily. If no other principal or
bridging station is active on the call, the green status LEDs of all associated SA and 6A
buttons wink.
Any of the principal or bridging stations can enter the held call, unless Exclusion has been
activated or the maximum number of parties are already connected to the conversation.
Exclusion: A call can be placed on hold after Exclusion is invoked. The status LED of the
line appearance button and the Exclusion button will wink.
2-199
FEATURES AND SERVICES
Music-On-Hold: A held party on an outside line will receive Music-On-Hold if provided.
Personal Lines: A Personal Line cannot be placed on hold if any other stations are also offhook on that line.
Remote Access: Remote Access callers cannot use the Hold feature.
2-200
Inspection
Inspection
Description
This feature enables the user at any voice terminal administered for the Display feature to
perform the following functions:
●
View incoming call identification messages even while busy on another call.
●
View information about held or bridged calls.
●
Examine information stored on REP DIAL, FLEX DSS, and LAST # DIALED buttons.
●
Determine the busy status of pooled trunk groups.
●
Determine feature button type.
To activate this feature, the display set user must first leave Normal Mode and enter the
Inspection Mode by pressing the INSPECT button. The system presents the following prompt
on the display screen:
Screen 1
INSPECT
Then, to inspect specific information, the user presses the appropriate call appearance, loop,
or feature button.
Note:
If the user presses INSPECT immediately after dialing a call, the call may
be disconnected; a pause of several seconds is recommended.
Display Formats
When the user presses the button to be inspected, the INSPECT prompt is replaced by
information about the button.
●
Assigned Feature Button
The name of the feature is displayed (for example, ACCT ENTRY, SIGNAL,
DIRECTORY).
●

Screen 1
XXX OF YYY BUSY
The user can return from Inspection Mode to Normal Mode or Local Mode by any of the
following actions:
●
Press INSPECT again.
●
Allow timeout to occur after 15 seconds of no station activity.
●
Change switchhook state; if the user goes on-hook, the terminal returns to Normal or
Local Mode; if the user goes off-hook, the terminal returns to Normal Mode.
Considerations
Activation of the Inspection feature has the following impact on terminal operation:
●
Hands-Free Answer on Intercom is disabled.
●
If the user is on-hook but has a call on hold, there is no effect on the call.
●
If the user is off-hook and in the midst of dialing, the system disconnects the call.
●
Automatic Incoming Call Identification (see “Display” feature description) is
suppressed.
●
The user cannot operate feature buttons.
●
The user cannot perform call-handling procedures (such as holding, transferring, or
answering a call).
2-202
Inspection
The user of a non-attendant display set can exit from Inspection directly to Program Mode by
activating the Program switch. However, to reenter Inspection, the user must first go from Program
to Normal, then enter Inspection Mode.
Administration Requirements
Administration of the Display feature enables Inspection.
Hardware Requirements
The Inspection feature can be used only at display-equipped multiline voice terminals.

Features and Services
Integrated Solution (IS)
Description
This feature is the enhancement to System 25 with a UNIX®-based computer (PC) acting as a
Master Controller. The PC is a multi-tasking computer which provides the following options:
●
Basic Administration System (Included with IS): Basic Administration (BAS) allows you
to add, move, and change your telephone system to meet the demands of your business.
This is accomplished through the default administration interface of System 25.
●
Advanced Administration Software (optional): Advanced Administration Software allows
you to add, move, and change telephone features and assignments quickly with the
assistance of menus and help screens that guide you through each procedure. (You cannot
simultaneously administer with both AAS and BAS.)
●
Call Accounting System (optional): With the Call Accounting System (CAS), you can
track incoming and outgoing calls so that you can make informed decisions about your
telephone needs. You can monitor the cost of calls, print reports of incoming and/or
outgoing calls, track calls made on behalf of clients, and identify cases of telephone abuse.
●
AUDIX Voice Power (optional): AUDIX Voice Power (AVP) combines features of the
Automated Attendant (AA) with an information service, message drop, and voice mail to
retrieve calls and take messages when a user is busy or does not answer. (You can have
either AVP or AA, but not both.)
●
Automated Attendant (optional): Automated Attendant (AA) is a low-cost solution for
businesses requiring less features than those offered with AVP. Calls on specified lines are
automatically answered, and callers are directed to the extension number of the person or
department they are calling. (You can have either AVP or AA, but not both.)
●
FAX Attendant (optional)
Considerations
For Basic or Advanced Administration, the Master Controller is connected to System 25 exactly as
an ordinary SAT. A serial port is required on the UNIX-based PC (one is standard, additional serial
ports are available on expansion boards). Advanced Administration is optional and requires the
appropriate software.
For Call Accounting System, the Master Controller is connected to System 25 just as an SMDR
printer. The final connection to the PC is made with a 355A adapter. A serial port is required on the
PC (one is standard, additional serial ports are available on expansion boards). A wide-carriage
parallel printer such as the 473/474 and 570/572 is strongly recommended (a single Centronics 36
pin parallel port is standard on the PC).
2-204
November 1995
Integrated Solution
For Office Automation applications, there are no absolute requirements, but the customer’s needs
should be understood. For example, most customers who need word processing also would like a
letter-quality printer. A serial interfaced printer should be recommended due to the ease with which
serial ports may be added to the PC. Most serial printers will require a null modem cable such as our
PEC 2724-91G or 2724-92G.
Any AVP application will require at least one VOICE POWER board. Message Drop Service
requires a dedicated VOICE POWER channel. Announcement Service requires a dedicated VOICE
POWER channel. Automated Attendant, Voice Mail System, and Call Coverage may share the
same VOICE POWER channel, but traffic considerations must determine the number of channels
required to provide an acceptable level of service.
The Master Controller provides three slots for VOICE POWER boards. These slots may be used to
add VOICE POWER expansion boards.
Interactions
Both Administration and Call Accounting require a serial port on the PC.
The Automated Attendant feature of VMS may interact with the Call Coverage feature of VMS if Call
Coverage is invoked when Automated Attendant attempts to transfer an incoming call. If this
happens, two Voice Power boards begin talking to each other and the incoming caller is left
needlessly confused. Avoid this situation by administering the number of rings for your Automated
Attendant to return to a caller to be fewer than the number of rings it takes to activate Call
Coverage. Alternatively, if the station in question will always be available to answer a call,
administer the Automated Attendant to perform blind transfers. (To obtain a better understanding of
the VMS features and their interactions, read the VMS documentation and the Integrated Solution
user guide.)
Administration Requirements
System:
●
Requires one port assignment on a ZTN78 Tip Ring CP per VOICE POWER channel.
●
VOICE POWER channels which will be used for Automated Attendant service should be
administered as a single DGC group.
●
Appropriate feature port type codes exist for the different AVP functions and have to be
administered (see the R3 Administration Manual for the correct data values).

Intercept Treatment With Reorder Tones
Intercept Treatment With Reorder Tones
Description
Reorder tone (fast busy) is provided when a call cannot be completed (for example when an
unassigned or toll-restricted number is dialed, a dialing error occurs, a requested trunk group
is busy, or an attempt to park a call falls).
Calls to FPDCs that are not signed-in anywhere or to unassigned DID numbers will be routed
to the attendant or will receive Reorder Tone, at the System Administrator’s option. Any
attempt to dial a restricted call (toll or access restricted) will be intercepted and routed to
Reorder Tone.
Considerations
Intercept treatment provides a calling party with positive feedback of an error in dialing or
use of an incorrect code.
Interactions
The following feature interacts with Intercept Treatment With Reorder Tones.
Account Code Entry, Forced: The user receives reorder tone when an account code is
required on a call but is not entered.
Callback Queuing: If automatic Callback Queuing (CBQ) for outside calls is administered
and all trunks are busy, Queuing Tone is returned to the calling party. If automatic CBQ is
not administered, the caller hears Reorder Tone when all trunks in a pool are busy, but can
queue the call using the appropriate manual method. Reorder Tone is also returned if the
busy trunks are not administered for queuing or if all the queue slots are in use. In these
cases, queuing can not take place.
Park: An unsuccessful attempt to park a call due to misdialing or attempting to park more
than one call at a voice terminal results in Reorder Tone,
2-207
FEATURES AND SERVICES
Interdigit Timeouts
Description
This feature allows an originating register to be made available for others if dialing is not
completed within a set time period.
Interdigit timeouts is 24 seconds until the first five digits have been dialed, 10 seconds until
the next five digits have been dialed, and five seconds thereafter.
After connection has been established, voice terminal dial pad button presses are interpreted
as end-to-end signaling requests and touch-tones are placed on the outside line.
Considerations
Interdigit timeouts also apply to data calls.
When a user dials out over a trunk set up for dial pulse rather that Touch-Tone service, the
interdlglt timeout interval is involved. The caller cannot speak to the called party until the
timeout expires (even though the caller may be able to hear the called party). If the user
presses the # button after dialing the last digit, this timeout ends and the caller may speak
immediately.
Interactions
The following feature interacts with Interdigit Timeouts.
Tie Trunks: For tie trunks only, the talk/signaling path is cut through when answer
supervision is received from the distant end. Thus, there is no need to dial # or wait
additional seconds for timeout.

Last Number Dialed
Last Number Dialed
Description
Last Number Dialed automatically saves the last number dialed from a multiline voice
terminal or ATL cordless telephone and allows the user to place the call again without
manually redialing the number. The feature is administered to a button on the terminal. Both
inside and outside calls can be made in this way. The original call can be placed by manual
dialing, by operation of a programmed button, or by Speed Dialing.
To use the feature, the caller first gets dial tone, and then presses the Last Number Dialed
button (LAST # DIALED). The I-use and status LEDs of the button selected for originating
the call (for example, System Access, Loop, or Personal Line) light steadily; if the Last
Number Dialed button has an LED, it lights momentarily. The call proceeds in the normal
way. The number associated with the Last Number Dialed button remains saved even if the
called party answers. Only the dialing of a new number changes the state of the Last
Number Dialed button; the old number is then erased and the new one stored.
Considerations
Last Number Dialed is a convenience feature that is especially valuable for redialing multidigit numbers that were first dialed manually from a terminal’s pushbutton dial. However, the
feature can also be used to redial numbers originally called by the following means:
●
Repertory Dial buttons.
●
Group Select and DXS buttons on a Selector Console.
This feature saves numbers with up to 16 digits.
The user must hear dial tone before pressing the Last Number Dialed button.
The Last Number Dialed feature cannot be activated by dialing an access code. It is not
available to users of single-line voice terminals.
If a dialed number does not complete a call, Last Number Dialed still stores the digits dialed.
If the user presses the Last Number Dialed button, then dials additional digits to complete
the call, both the currently stored digits and the dialed digits will be stored.
Interactions
The following features interact with Last Number Dialed.
Account Code Entry, Forced or Optional: Last Number Dialed does not save the access
code ✶ 0 or the account code.
Attendant Display: When a call is placed at a Switched Loop Attendant Console, using the
Last Number Dialed button, the call information display has the normal format of an outgoing
call. In the Inspect mode, pressing the Last Number Dialed button displays the number

FEATURES AND SERVICES
currently stored on the button.
Automatic Intercom: Numbers called using an Automatic Intercom button are not saved by
the Last Number Dialed feature. The number currently stored by Last Number Dialed is not
changed by operations of the Automatic Intercom button.
Bridging of System Access Buttons: The Last Number Dialed feature saves numbers called
from either Bridged Access buttons or System Access buttons.
Call Accountability: When a station user dials ##PDC to provide accountability for a call
and then dials the desired digits the ##PDC is not saved by the Last Number Dialed
feature.
Conference: When a station user adds a party to a conference, the number dialed is saved
as the Last Number Dialed.
Direct Station Selection (DSS): Numbers called using a DSS or Flex DSS button are not
saved by the Last Number Dialed feature. The number currently stored by Last Number
Dialed is not changed by operations of these buttons.
Personal Lines: When a user originates a call from a Personal Line, only the digits dialed
after the line is accessed are saved by the Last Number Dialed feature. The same type of
line must be selected to get dial tone for placing another call using Last Number Dialed. If a
different type of line is used, the call may be directed to the wrong destination.
Pooled Facility—Direct Access: When a user originates a call from a Direct Facility Access
button. only the digits dialed after the line is accessed are saved by the Last Number Dialed
feature. The same type of button should be selected to get dial tone for placing another call
using Last Number Dialed. If a different type of button is used, the call may not be
completed properly.
Repertory Dialing: When using a Repertory Dialing button to place a call, the numbers dialed
are saved by Last Number Dialed. When the call is redialed using Last Number Dialed, the
same type of button where dial tone was originally accessed should be used again to ensure
that the call is directed to the correct destination.
Speed Dialing: When using a Personal or System Speed Dialing code to place a call, the
code is saved by Last Number Dialed. When the call is redialed using Last Number Dialed,
the same type of button where dial tone was originally accessed should be used again to
ensure that the call is completed properly.
System Access/System Access Originate Only Buttons: If a user originates a call from one
of these buttons, the same type of button should be selected for getting dial tone to place a
second call with the Last Number Dialed feature. Using another type of button, such as
Personal Line or Direct Facility Access, to get dial tone may prevent the call from completing
properly.
Transfer: When a station user Transfers a call, the dialed number (of the party to whom the
call is transferred) is saved as the Last Number Dialed.
2-210
Last Number Dialed
Administration Requirements
Last Number Dialed is a default feature on all multiline voice terminals. One button is
assigned to the feature at each set. The feature can be moved or removed by
administration.
2-211
FEATURES AND SERVICES
Leave Word Calling
Description
Leave Word Calling (LWC) is available only when a Voice Message System (VMS) is
connected to the System 25; the VMS provides the message processing and voice
synthesizing facilities used by LWC. The interface between System 25 and VMS requires
administration of special ports on analog tip/ring circuit packs.
LWC enhances the messaging capabilities of System 25 by enabling users to generate “call
me” voice messages for PDCs and FPDCs. The messages have a format such as “Call
(name) on extension (number)” and are assembled, stored, and delivered by VMS. Called
parties are alerted to their messages by lighted Message LEDs, when available.
At a multiline voice terminal, LWC can be used when the terminal is off-hook under any of
the following condltions:
●
Receiving busy tone
●
Receiving ringback tone
●
Queued on the called station
●
Connected to a coverage point for the called station
LWC is then activated by pressing the LEAVE WORD button, which sends a request to VMS
to leave a message for the called endpoint (station or FPDC).
An LWC message can also be sent when the multiline terminal is not active on a call. In this
case, the user goes off-hook to get dial tone, presses LEAVE WORD, and dials the desired
extension number.
The single-line voice terminal user who wishes to leave a message at another station must
first go from the on-hook state to the off-hook state to get dial tone. Then the user dials
LWC code #92 followed by the desired extension number.
In all these procedures, confirmation tone is returned to the caller to indicate acceptance of
the dialed code. Reorder tone indicates that the process cannot be completed. After leaving
a message, the caller can hang up or handle other calls.
System 25 attempts to deliver LWC requests to VMS as they are generated. Requests are
queued if the VMS ports are busy. Up to 20 requests can be queued at one time and be
waiting for a voice messaging port to become available. While an LWC request is in queue,
the Message LED at the called station will not light and the message cannot be retrieved.
A PDC is administered for users to call to retrieve their messages from the VMS. This PDC
is the same one assigned to voice messaging ports and used by the system to interface with
peripheral messaging equipment. To retrieve a message indicated by a lighted Message
LED, the user dials the message station PDC. All stored messages are presented to the
user by voice synthesis. The user can use touch-tone signals to have messages repeated
and to erase messages. Password protection is provided.
2-212
Leave Word Calling (LWC)
Considerations
System 25’s Leave Word Calling feature provides an easy method to send “call me”
messages by way of an attached VMS. When the feature is activated, caller and called party
information is delivered to the VMS, which lights the Message LED of the called party and
then prepares a brief message containing the caller’s name and extension. The called party
can retrieve the message at his/her convenience.
Multiline voice terminals cannot use dial code #92 to activate LWC.
The VMS system itself must be administered to register the PDCs and FPDCs of all calling
and called stations.
Interactions
The following features interact with Leave Word Calling.
Callback Queuing: A user who is queued for access to a busy station can invoke LWC. The
callback request is canceled when LWC is activated.
Coverage: A multiline voice terminal user can activate LWC for the called party (PDC or
FPDC) even if the call has gone to coverage.
Display: If a user successfully activates LWC, the display shows the called extension
number and MSG SENT.
Screen 1
879 MSG SENT
If an LWC attempt is not successful, the display shows the called extension and MSG
DENIED.
Screen 1

●
Establish interface with associated Voice Message System.
2-213
FEATURES AND SERVICES
Hardware Requirements
A Voice Message System must be connected to the System 25 by way of a port on a ZTN78
Tip Ring Line circuit pack. Use of a TN742 Analog Line circuit pack for VMS interface is not
recommended.

Line Selection
Line Selection
Description
Multiline voice terminals may have many line (facility) appearances. There are three methods
by which a user may select a desired line: (1) Prime Line Preference, (2) Ringing Line
Preference, and (3) Preselection.
Prime Line Preference:
Automatically connects a multiline voice terminal to a specified line or facility designated as
preferred when the terminal goes off-hook. This feature may be assigned to System Access,
Loop, Bridged Access, Automatic Intercom, DSS, Personal Line, and Direct Facility Access
buttons.
On the Switched Loop Attendant Console. the topmost Loop button has Prime Line
Preference by default. However. the feature can be assigned to any of the five Loop
buttons.
The user may override this feature by preselecting another button (see below).
If Prime Line Preference is assigned to an Automatic Intercom (AUTO ICOM) or DSS button,
the called voice terminal will ring as soon as the terminal goes off hook.
When the Prime Line Preference feature is assigned to an AUTO ICOM, DSS, or Direct
Facility Access (FACILITY) button, the button must be pressed to activate the busy-to-idle
reminder even though the button’s I-use LED is lighted steadily.
If Prime Line Preference is assigned to a Personal Line or Bridged Access button, the user is
connected to the button upon going off-hook, even if the line is busy. The user is always
connected to the button where Prime Line Preference is assigned, unless the line has a call
on hold.
Ringing Line Preference:
Automatically connects a multiline voice terminal to an incoming call ringing at the terminal.
Ringing Line Preference overrides Prime Line Preference and Preselection when a call is
ringing at an on-hook voice terminal.
Line access buttons that can be selected by Ringing Line Preference include System Access,
Bridged Access, Automatic Intercom, Coverage, and Personal Lines.
If two or more lines on a multiline terminal or a Direct Trunk Attendant Console are ringing
simultaneously, the user is connected to the first line to start ringing. If the user wishes to
use a different line, the line must be preselected prior to going off-hook. If ringing ceases
while the user is on-hook, line preference reverts to whichever option is applicable (Prime
Line Preference or no preference).
2-215
FEATURES AND SERVICES
If a line rings at a multiline terminal when the terminal is busy on another call, Ringing Line
Preference will not activate, even if the user goes on-hook during the ringing cycle.
However, Ringing Line Preference is not canceled at the Attendant Console while the
attendant is off-hook. If a line is ringing while the attendant is off-hook, the ringing line will
be selected as soon as the attendant goes on-hook.
Preselection:
Allows multiline voice terminal users to override the above line preference features.
Users may simply press a desired line access button before going off-hook. The user will be
connected to the facility selected unless the facility is busy and the party using it has invoked
Exclusion or is part of a conference call that is at maximum capacity.
When off-hook, a user can select a facility by pressing the associated button. (This will
terminate the call the user was on.)
A user may activate the busy-to-idle reminder on a busy AUTO ICOM, DSS, FLEX DSS, or
FACILITY button by pressing the button while on-hook. A burst of ringing is provided when
the facility becomes idle. Refer to the description of the Busy-to-Idle feature for additional
information.
Considerations
Prime Line Preference (on the topmost SYSTEM ACCESS or Loop button) and Ringing Line
Preference are assigned by default to all multiline voice terminals. While these assignments
may be changed, it is strongly recommended that Ringing Line Preference be retained.
It is recommended that Prime Line Preference not be assigned to a Direct Trunk Attendant
Console (DTAC).
Preselection allows users to override line preference features already administered for the
terminal and to activate the busy-to-idle reminder feature.
Interactions
The following features interact with Line Selection.
Attendant Console, Direct Trunk: If a line rings at a DTAC while the attendant is on another
call, Ringing Line Preference will be invoked when the attendant hangs up.
Bridging of System Access Buttons: A Bridged Access button can be specified as the
preferred line for outgoing calls when the station goes off-hook.
If a station has Ringing Line Preference enabled and has a ringing bridged call appearance,
an on-hook user is connected to the bridged appearance if the set goes off-hook.
2-216
Line Selection
Power Failure/Cold Start: On power-up, most multiline voice terminals will have no I-use
LED lit and will not draw dial tone until a button is pressed. After this, line selection should
work as described above.
Administration Requirements
Voice Terminal Port:
●
Prime Line Preference:
Assign Prime Line Preference; default = top SYSTEM ACCESS button or top LOOP
button (Switched Loop Attendant Console only).
●
Ringing Line Preference:
Assign Ringing Line Preference (yes or no; default = yes).

FEATURES AND SERVICES
Local Display
Description
This feature allows the user of a display-equipped voice terminal to operate the Time/Timer
circuit built into the display module. The voice terminal must be in the “Local Mode” for use
of Local Display. The Timer has Set, Start, Fwd (Forward), Stop, Rev (Reverse), Time/Timer,
and Exit buttons to control the visible clock, calendar, and 60-minute timer displays and an
audible alarm. Some terminals are equipped with a LOCAL button for entering and exiting
Local Mode.
Local Display operation depends on the functional assignment and administration of the
voice terminal:
●
General Use Station or Not-Logged-In Direct Group Calling (DGC) Group Member
Station—LOCAL button optional.
When the terminal is idle, Local Mode is automatically on and the clock/calendar
screen is displayed. Any call-handling activity (such as a ringing call or going offhook) overrides Local Mode and displays the appropriate Normal Mode data. During
Normal Mode activity, the user can manually return to Local Mode (for example, to
find out what time it is or to time a call) by pressing Time/Timer; to return from this
condition to Normal Mode, the user presses the active call appearance button. When
the call activity ends and the user goes on-hook again, the terminal reverts to Local
Mode.
If the terminal has a LOCAL button, it can be used to turn off Local Mode; during idle
periods in this condition, the screen remains completely blank. To return to Local
Mode, the LOCAL button must be pressed again.
●
Logged-In DGC Group Member Station—LOCAL button optional.
At a DGC terminal that is logged into the group, Local Mode is normally off. During
idle periods, the group queue count is displayed, but the user can press LOCAL, if
equipped, or Time/Timer to override the queue count and activate Local Display.
Any change in queue count, or new call-handling activity, returns the terminal to
Normal Mode. When active on a call, the user can go to Local Mode by pressing
Time/Timer and return to Normal Mode by pressing the active call appearance
button.
If the terminal has a LOCAL button, it can be used exit and enter Local Mode.
●
Switched Loop Attendant Console (SLAC)—fixed LOCAL button.
At a SLAC, Local Mode is normally off. During idle periods, when no calls are being
handled and the display screen is blank except for the SLAC queue count, the
attendant can press the LOCAL button to override the queue display and enter Local
Mode. If the queue count changes or a call comes in, Local Mode is overridden and
the queue count or incoming call information (plus queue count) appears on the
screen. Initiating a call, or pressing LOCAL again, will also cause the console to exit
Local Mode.
2-220
Local Display
The terminal user can set any of the Local Display functions by performing the following
procedure while not active on a call:
1.
If the clock/calendar screen is not already being displayed, press LOCAL (or
Time/Timer if the terminal has no LOCAL button).
The clock/calendar screen appears on the display
2.
Press Set repeatedly, until the item to be changed flashes.
3.
Press Fwd or Rev to change the item’s setting.
4.
To change the setting of another item, return to step 2.
5.
Press Exit.
The clock/calendar screen appears on the display.
If the alarm clock function is set, the terminal will “beep” at the selected time. This audible
alarm should not be confused with the Attendant System Alarm Indication feature, which
causes the ALARM button LED to flash when system trouble is detected.
To time an event (such as a call), the user performs the following procedure while not active
on a call:
1.
If the clock/calendar screen is not already being displayed, press LOCAL (or
Time/Timer if the terminal has no LOCAL button).
The clock/calendar screen appears on the display.
2.
Press Time/Timer.
The timer screen appears on the display.
3.
To start the timer, press Start.
The timer resets to 00:00, then begins timing.
4.
5.
6.
To stop the timer, press Stop.
To time another event, return to step 3.
Press Exit.
The clock/calendar screen appears on the display.
Considerations
At SLACs and logged-in DGC terminals, preference is given to queue displays over the
clock/calendar display. This condition can be overridden by pressing LOCAL, if available.

Manual Signaling
Manual Signaling
Description
This feature allows a user to signal another voice terminal. The user may do this at any
time, whether on-hook or off-hook. In voice terminal user guides, this feature is called
“Signaling.”
Multiline voice terminal users can signal another predesignated multiline voice terminal by
pressing an associated Manual Signaling (SIGNAL) button. A single tone burst is provided at
the signaled terminal. The signaling voice terminal also receives the tone and can use this
feature while in any call state. No LED indication is associated with the Manual Signaling
feature.
When the Manual Signaling feature is used while the called station is ringing on another call,
no audible signal is received by either the signaling or the called voice terminal.
The duration of the single burst of signaling will always be the same, regardless of how long
SIGNAL is pressed. The signal is repeated each time the button is pressed.
Considerations
Manual Signaling allows a user to signal another voice terminal without calling the terminal.
The meaning of the signal may be prearranged between the sending and the receiving
parties. Only multiline terminals may be signaled.
Interactions
The following features interact with Manual Signaling.
Display: A display set receiving manual signaling from another station has SIG in positions
1-3. The name of the signaling party, if available, or the extension number of the station
from which the signal was sent appears in positions 6-14.
Screen 1
SIG Borden,L
The message is displayed for 5 seconds or until the user selects another button or receives
a call. The signaling party has no display for this feature.
External Alerts: Manual Signaling will not activate external alerting devices associated with
the signaled station.

Message Center-Like Operation (SLAC Only)
Message Center-Like Operation (SLAC Only)
Description
A System 25 Switched Loop Attendant Console (SLAC) can be made to function like a
message center through administration of call type translations. Certain specific types of
calls in the common queue will then be directed only to a console administered as a
message center. This arrangement involves no changes in equipment or in operating
procedures. The message center attendant answers incoming calls of the preselected types
in the normal way. No provision is made for storing messages, a capability often associated
with full service message centers.
Message Center Call Types:
The Message Center receives calls of the following types:
●
Returning parked calls that were originally parked from a Selector Console.
●
Returning camped-on calls.
●
Returning calls that were extended (transferred) from an Attendant Position to a busy
station or a station that does not answer.
●
Coverage calls —incoming inside and outside calls (including DID calls) covered by
the common queue when the called party does not answer, is busy, or does not want
to be disturbed (Send All Calls).
●
Floating PDCs (FPDCs) not signed in at a station and unassigned DID calls
The type of each incoming Message Center call will be identified by a call type descriptor on
the console’s 16-character display screen. Refer to the earlier Switched Loop Attendant
Console feature description for a list of descriptors.
Console Configurations:
Message Center-like operation applies only when the System 25 has two SLACs. In a oneconsole system, all calls are handled at the same position.
In the default condition, a SLAC is a combined Attendant Position/Message Center. It can
receive any type of call. In a one-console system, there is no division between attendant and
message center functions.
A dedicated Message Center is a console that is administered to receive only the specified
incoming call types. Dial 0 calls (attendant-seeking calls from inside the system) are not
directed to a Message Center, but the console has a unique PDC number that callers can
use to reach the attendant.
A dedicated Attendant Position is a console that is administered to answer all of the calls not
handled by the Message Center.
2-225
FEATURES AND SERVICES
Message Center capability can
configurations:
be supported in any of the following two-console
●
One dedicated Attendant Position and one dedicated Message Center. A call
extended by the Attendant Position to a station that does not answer or is busy
returns to the Message Center.
●
One dedicated Attendant Position and one combined Attendant Position/Message
Center; the Attendant at the combined position also functions as the Message Center
operator for the entire system. A call extended by either Attendant to a station that
does not answer or is busy returns to the Message Center.
●
Two combined Attendant Position/Message Centers; the Attendants at each
combined position also function as Message Center operators. The special call types
answered by Message Centers can be divided between the two consoles, or both
consoles can answer all types. A call extended by either Attendant to a station that
does not answer or in busy returns to the Message Center specified in translation.
Three return options are provided: to the 1st attendant, to the 2nd attendant, or to
either attendant.
Interactions
All System 25 console features are accessible at a Message Center. Operating procedures
are exactly the same as those at a standard Attendant Position. The BIS and HFAI features
can be used to answer Message Center calls.
An auxiliary Direct Extension Selector Console can be used with a Message Center.
Outgoing calling, from the Basic Console or the Selector Console, is not affected by
Message Center administration.
Administration Requirements
A new item in administration allows selection of an alternative set of call type defaults,
making one of the attendant positions a “message center”. These defaults may be modified
for individual call types, if desired, to tailor the message center-like operation for different
locations. For administration purposes, the Message Center call types are divided into four
groups: (1) Calls to FPDCs that are not signed in anywhere; (2) Unassigned DID calls; (3)
Coverage calls; (4) Returning calls.
With the standard (ie, non-message center) defaults, each of these groups is translated to be
directed to all consoles. When both positions are combined Attendant/Message Center
consoles, administration can direct specific types to one or both consoles.
Message Center calls are held in the same common queue as any other attendant-seeking
calls before being directed to the console.

Messaging Services
Messaging Services
Description
These services include features that light a Message LED to indicate that another station or
the attendant) has a message for the user.
The Messaging Services provide light activation/deactivation only. Users must call the
sender to receive their messages.
The system supports four types of Message Waiting services:
●
Attendant Message Waiting
●
Coverage Message Waiting
●
Dial Access to Message Waiting Indicators
●
Station-to-Station Message Waiting
It also provides interface with the AT&T VOICE POWER Voice Message System.
Attendant Message Waiting
The Attendant can turn on (and turn off) the Message LED at other voice terminals. When
this indicator is lighted, users call the attendant for messages. The LED on multiline
terminals may be turned off by the user (by pressing MESSAGE), by the attendant, or by
another station with the Dial Access to Message Waiting Indicators feature. The Message
LED on single-line terminals can be turned on or off by the attendant or by the user with the
Dial Access feature.
Refer to the “Attendant Message Waiting” feature description for additional information.
Coverage Message Waiting
Allows a user providing Individual Coverage to control the Message LED on a covered (or
(This feature also allows a bridging station user in a
bridged) voice terminal.
Principal/Bridging arrangement to control the principal’s Message LED using the procedures
described here.) A Coverage Message button (COVER MSG) at the covering station is used
to display and control the status of the covered user’s Message LED. The state of the
COVER MSG LED reflects the state of the covered station’s Message LED. The covering
user can turn on or off (toggle) the covered party’s Message LED at any time during a
coverage or bridged call by pressing COVER MSG. To turn on the covered user’s Message
LED when not on a coverage or bridged call, the covering user may go off-hook on a System
Access button, press COVER MSG and then dial the covered user. The covered station’s
Message LED turns on if off and stays on if already on. If the covering station then presses
COVER MSG a second time before hanging up, the Message LED will turn Off.
A covered party must dial the covering party to retrieve messages. Multiline voice terminal
users can press MESSAGE to turn Off their Message LED. Message indicators on singleline voice terminals can be controlled by the user, the covering party, or the attendant, by
using the Dial Access feature.
2-227
FEATURES AND SERVICES
If a user tries to turn on the Message LED at a voice terminal for which the user does not
provide Individual Coverage, Reorder Tone is received.
Refer to the “Coverage, Individual” feature description for additional information.
Dial Access to Message Waiting Indicators
This service allows users to turn on or off the built-in Message LED (or Z3A Message
Waiting Indicator adjunct) of any voice terminal in the system (including their own). Access is
by way of dial codes. The service does not apply to the feature buttons/LEDs administered
for Station-to-Station Message Waiting.
Refer to the “Dial Access to Message Waiting Indicators” feature description for additional
information.
Station-To-Station Message Waiting
Multiline voice terminals can be assigned (paired) Message Waiting (MSG WAIT) buttons with
associated status LEDs. When this indicator is lighted, the user calls the other user for
messages. The MSG WAIT LED can be controlled by the two associated terminals only;
either user can toggle the state of both LEDs (e.g., both LEDs go On or Off together) at any
time, whether on-hook or off-hook.
Refer to the
information.

FEATURES AND SERVICES
Modem Pooling
Description
Allows switched data connections between digital data endpoints and analog data endpoints.
(Refer also to the discussion of the system’s data features provided in the “Data Services
Overview” feature description.)
Data transmission between digital and analog endpoints requires a conversion resource
since the digital format used by the data module is not compatible with the modulated signals
of an analog modem. The conversion resource translates the digital signals from the digital
endpoint into analog signals and vice versa.
The modem pool is a single group of up to 12 conversion resources (3 Cabinet system) with
the characteristics of a 212A full duplex asynchronous modem that can operate at speeds of
300 and 1200 bps.
The Modem Pooling feature operates transparently to the user whenever possible. In most
cases, when a digital endpoint is connected to an analog trunk or port, the system adds a
conversion resource without any explicit action by the user.
A voice terminal user who plans to use an analog modem to call a digital endpoint must first
enter the Modem Request Code before dialing the digital endpoint. This is because the
system assumes that a voice call to a digital endpoint will be transferred to data via the
Transfer To Data feature.
A DID call terminating on a digital endpoint will be assigned a modem resource, if available.
Otherwise, the call receives Reorder tone.
For each situation that requires a conversion resource, the system:
1.
Determines if a resource is required by examining the types of endpoints that are to
be connected together or by user indication.
2.
Once it is determined that a conversion resource is needed, it is reserved. The user
receives Reorder Tone (or the “NO MODEMS - TRY AGAIN” message) if a resource
is not available. The system queries the data port to determine whether its options
are compatible with those supported by the modem pool. If they are not (e.g., 9600
baud and Permit Mismatch is not enabled), the originating user receives intercept
treatment (i.e., INCOMPATIBLE FAR END) and call setup is abandoned.
3.
At data connection time, the conversion resource is seized and placed in the
connection.
4.
The call is disconnected within 15 seconds if the conversion resource does not
successfully handshake with both endpoints.
2-230
Modem Pooling
Conversion resources are requlred for:
●
Data Terminal Dialing: To establish a data connection for calls originated via
Terminal Dialing to intrapremises analog data endpoints.
●
Incoming Trunk Calls: To establish a data connection between an incoming trunk call
and a digital endpoint. Incoming trunk calls that are answered at a voice terminal can
be transferred to a data endpoint using the Transfer To Data feature.
●
On-Premises Data Calls: To establish a data connection between an on-premises
analog data endpoint and an on-premises digital endpoint.
●
Outgoing Trunk Calls: To establish a data connection between an off-premises
analog endpoint (modem) and an on-premises digital endpoint.
Considerations
Modem Pooling provides a pool of conversion resources that increases data call flexibility.
Conversion resources allow analog data endpoints, using modems, to communicate with
digital data endpoints (using data modules). Also, modem pooling reduces costs by sharing
resources.
Interactions
The following features interact with Modem Pooling.
Automatic Route Selection:
message.
Data calls may be queued. See Table 2-I, “PLEASE WAIT”
Calling Restrictions: If a terminal is toll or access restricted, the modem resource is
released when the user receives intercept treatment.
Direct Group Calling: Modem pooling supports calls to data endpoints that are part of a
DGC group. While an incoming data call is in the DGC group queue, the caller hears
Ringback Tone. The conversion resource is inserted if the call is completed to a digital
endpoint.
Station Hunting: Modem Pooling supports calls to data endpoints that are part of a station
hunting group.
Station Message Detail Recording (SMDR): SMDR records do not reflect modem resource
usage. Interpremises data calls using a conversion resource are reported as data calls on
the SMDR call record.
2-231
FEATURES AND SERVICES
Administration Requirements
System (Pooled Modems):
●
Modem Request Code (1-9999; default = 820). Allows users to indicate a need for a
conversion resource on a data call originated at an analog data endpoint.
●
Receiver Responds To Remote Loop (yes or no; default = yes). When active, Data
Set Ready is asserted when the modem is in an analog loop test mode.
●
Disconnect On Loss Of Carrier (yes or no; default = yes). When active, a loss of the
received carrier will cause the modem to terminate the call.
●
CF-CB Common (yes or no; default = yes). When active, Clear to Send turns off if
Carrier Detect turns off. When a call is being established, Clear to Send and Carrier
Detect are not allowed to turn on until carrier has been received and the Clear to
Send timer has timed out.
●
Disconnect On Received Space (yes or no; default = yes). When active, the modem
will disconnect after receiving a “Space” signal of approximately two seconds
duration.
●
Send Space On Disconnect (yes or no; default = yes). When active, the modem,
upon receiving a negation of Data Terminal Ready, sends approximately four
seconds of “Space” signal and then disconnects. Without this option active, the
modem, upon receiving a negation of the Data Terminal Ready signal, disconnects
immediately.
Hardware Requirements
One TN758 Pooled Modem CP provides two conversion resources. Two TN758s are allowed
per system cabinet, for a total of 12 conversion resources in a 3-cabinet system.
2-232
Music-On-Hold
Music-On-Hold
Description
This feature provides music or other audible indication to a held party on an outside line
On an outside call, if the user places the call on Hold, or after a call into a DGC group
receives the delay announcement, music is provided to the calling party. If a caller receives
music because all members of a DGC group are busy, when a group member becomes
available to answer the call, music is removed and the calling party is connected to the DGC
member.
When a multiline voice terminal user places a call on hold, the status LED of the held line
winks and music is provided to the held party. The user may return to the held party by
pressing the button associated with the held call. The status LED lights steadily, music is
removed from the line, and a talking connection is again established.
When a single-line voice terminal user places a call on hold by pressing the switchhook
momentarily, the calling party is connected to music or a recording. The station may return
to the held call by pressing the switchhook a second time. The music is removed from the
line and the held party is reconnected to the user.
Music-On-Hold is not invoked when a conference call is placed on hold or when the
attendant “Start” facility is used to place a call on hold. In addition, Music-On-Hold is not
provided for data calls or inside calls.
Considerations
Music-On-Hold lets the waiting party know that he or she is still connected.
Users of equipment that rebroadcasts copyrighted music or other material may be
required to obtain a copyright license from a third party such as ASCAP or BMI.
Interactions
The following features interact with Music-On-Hold.
Attendant Splitting One-Way Automatic: Music-On-Hold is not provided when the attendant
presses START.
Conference: When a station user sets up a conference, the other parties are put on “special
hold” until being connected together. If Music-On-Hold has been administered for the
special hold condition, the conferees hear music during the hold interval.
Direct Group Calling: An incoming call to a busy DGC group that provides a recorded delay
announcement will receive music after the announcement.
2-233
FEATURES AND SERVICES
Park: Parked calls (except parked conferences) receive music.
Transfer: When a station user transfers a call to another station, the transferred party is put
on “special hold” until the process has been completed. If Music-On-Hold has been
administered for the special hold condition, the transferred party hears music during the hold
Interval.
Administration Requirements
Special Feature Port:
●
Assign a port on a TN742 Analog Line or ZTN78 Tip Ring Line CP as required for the
music/message source (special feature port type = 254).
●
Allow Music-On-Hold for special hold (yes or no).
Hardware Requirements
A music source is needed to support the Music-On-Hold feature. The interface is a port on a
ZTN78 Tip Ring Line CP or TN742 Analog Line CP.
Detailed connection information is provided in the following figures:
●
Figure 2-33— Music-On-Hold Equipment Connections (FCC Registered)

Night Service
Night Service
Description
Allows users to answer incoming calls on specified trunks when the attendant is not on duty
There are two types of Night Service (NS):
●
Directed NS: Redirects incoming calls on specified trunks to designated voice
terminals.
●
Trunk-Answer-from-Any-Station (TAAS) NS: Allows users to answer incoming calls
on specified trunks by dialing the Night Service access code.
Both types of NS may be provided (specified on a per-trunk basis).
To obtain Night Service, the system must be equipped with an Attendant Console, and the
console administered with a NIGHT button. In a system with two Attendant Consoles, both
consoles may be assigned a NIGHT button. Either attendant can press NIGHT to activate
Night Service. The LEDs of both NIGHT buttons will light to indicate that the system is in the
Night Service mode. Pressing NIGHT a second time (by either attendant) deactivates Night
Service and turns Off both LEDs.
Directed NS:
Allows an incoming trunk call to be directed to up to four designated voice terminals.
Different trunks may be directed to different voice terminals.
When the attendant presses NIGHT, incoming calls on trunks administered to receive
Directed NS treatment will automatically be routed to the designated voice terminals (all
designated NS stations ring simultaneously). Calls not answered within a specified number
of rings will receive a Night Service delay announcement, if available. While at the
announcement, they may be bridged onto by going off-hook at a station with a line
appearance. The announcement is dropped at this point. If all Directed NS stations for a
given trunk are busy (all System Access buttons busy on multiline sets), calls go to the
announcement immediately. Directed NS calls do not hunt or receive coverage, but they can
be picked up via the Pickup feature.
Personal Line calls that are directed to NS will also ring at the Personal Line appearances
and receive normal coverage.
Incoming calls receiving Directed NS treatment will not activate external alerting devices
associated with TAAS NS and cannot be answered by dialing the NS access code.
Directed NS is activated under the following conditions:
●
An attendant has pressed NIGHT on either console.
●
Directed NS has been administered for the trunk.
●
Stations have been administered to receive NS calls.
2-237
FEATURES AND SERVICES
Note that at least one station must be designated as a NS receiver for this feature to work
properly. If only an announcement is required, administer the announcement device as a
station and make this station the NS receiver.
Refer to the “Night Service Delay Announcement”
information on the delay announcement.
feature description for additional
Trunk-Answer-from-Any-Station:
Allows any user to answer NS calls. Incoming trunk calls activate an external alerting device
such as a bell (“External Alerts” feature). A user can then dial the NS access code and
answer the call. Night Service is activated under the following conditions:
●
An attendant has pressed NIGHT on either console.
●
TAAS NS has been administered for the trunk.
●
A NS external alert has been installed and administered.
Note that TAAS NS calls will not activate the delay announcement associated with Directed
NS.
Considerations
Directed NS provides a means of ensuring that Night Service calls are answered by
designating individual voice terminals to receive the calls. In noisy environment, for example,
NS via external alerting devices may not be practical. Directed NS provides a solution to the
noise problem. Also, Personal Line calls to executives can receive special handling by
providing Directed NS. Calls continue to ring at the attendant position or Personal Line
appearances when NS is activated. They also ring the external alert (TAAS) or Directed NS
station.
Trunk-Answer-from-Any-Station provides the capability for any user to answer NS calls.
Interactions
The following features interact with Night Service.
DID Trunks: DID trunks are not assignable to NS. A DID call will ring at the appropriate
station whether NS is activated or not.
Following/Forwarding: Directed night service calls will not be given following or forwarding
treatment if the PDC is signed in at another station.
Remote Access: Remote Access trunks (dedicated or shared) cannot be given Directed or
TAAS Night Service treatment.
2-238
Night Service
Tie Trunks: Dial-in Tie Trunks cannot be given night service treatment.
Administration Requirements
Trunk Ports:
●
Assign trunk Class of Service with Night Service (8-15).
Note:
●
A Remote Access trunk must not be administered for either form of
Night Service treatment.
Assign Directed Night Service trunk (yes or no; default = yes).
Voice Terminal Port:
●
Directed NS
— Add Night Service trunk number to station list.
●
Assign External Alert for TAAS NS
Attendant Console (Voice Terminal) Port:
●
Night Service is defaulted to a button on the first Direct Trunk Attendant Console
only. On a second Direct Trunk Console or on a Switched Loop Attendant Console,
assign Night Service to a flexible button.
●
Assign Night Service Access Code
Hardware Requirements
TAAS NS requires an associated external alert (such as a bell). Each alert requires a port on
a ZTN78 Tip Ring Line or a TN742 Analog Line CP. Refer to the “External Alerts” feature
description for detailed information and a connection diagram.
2-239
FEATURES AND SERVICES
Night Service Delay Announcements
Description
This feature provides a recorded announcement for incoming trunk calls when the system
has Directed Night Service (NS) activated and a call is not answered.
Directed NS calls not answered within a specified number of rings (1-15) may be directed to
a recorded announcement. Two different recorded announcements may be assigned.
Note that NS calls to a terminal that are not answered do not receive Station Hunting or
Coverage treatment (unless the trunk also appears on a station’s Personal Line button).
After the announcement is played, the call is disconnected.
Considerations
Night Service Delay Announcements provide the calling party with a message that
acknowledges the call and can provide additional information as well. Once a NS call goes
to the delay announcement, the call will be disconnected from the system after the
announcement has been played.
Interactions
The following feature interacts with Night Service Delay Announcements.
Night Service: Incoming calls receiving TAAS NS treatment will not activate the delay
announcements. Only trunks that receive Directed NS will activate these announcements.
Administration Requirements
Special Feature Ports:
●
Assign first Night Service delay announcement (code 251).
●
Assign second Night Service delay announcement (code 252).
●
Assign number of rings before Night Service delay announcement (0-15).
Station Ports:
●
2-240
Assign port circuits (ZTN78 or TN742) for each recorded announcement.
Night Service Delay Announcements
Hardware Requirements
A suitable announcement machine is required for each announcement and must be
connected to a port on a ZTN78 Tip Ring Line (or TN742 Analog Line) CP.
The system supports two Directed Night Service delay announcements.
Detailed connection information is provided in Figure 2-35.

FEATURES AND SERVICES
Off-Premises Stations (OPS)
Description
An Off-Premises Station (OPS) is a single-line voice terminal that is located in another
building and connected to System 25 via arrangements with the local CO. The station has
the same features as an on-premises single-line station except that it is counted as an
outside party in a conference call. Also, the Message feature will not operate with these
sets.
Considerations
This service is sometimes furnished to executives at their residences. It allows them remote
access to System 25 features and services.
Interactions
The following features interact with Off-Premises Stations.
Conference: For conference purposes, an OPS counts as one of the two allowable outside
lines.
Distinctive Ringing: Distinctive Ringing is not provided; OPS stations will always receive
standard (that is, single) ringing for calls.
Administration Requirements
Single-Line Voice Terminal Port:
●
Assign port on Analog Line (TN742) or DS1 Interface (TN767) CP.
●
Make This an Extended Station (yes or no; default = no). (This is how the system
knows the station is an OPS.)
Hardware Requirements
Requires a port interface on a TN742 Analog Line CP or TN767 DS1 Interface CP.
The OPS must be a FCC registered single-line voice terminal.
Connectivity information is provided in Section 4, “Hardware Description.”
2-242
Out-of-Building Stations
Out-of-Building Stations
Description
Single-line voice terminals and multiline 7300H series terminals may be directly connected to the
system even though they are not located in the same building. For 7300H series terminals, special
In-Range Out-of-Building (IROB) units are used to protect the switch and its users from lightning,
power crosses, etc. Out-of-Building Stations can access all system features.
Considerations
Single-line voice terminals may be located at distances up to 24000 feet from the system cabinets.
Carbon protection devices are required for lightning and power cross protection.
Multiline voice terminals must be located within 2000 feet of the system cabinets (local power is
always required) and must have IROB protection devices. MET sets may not be used for Out-ofBuilding service.
Hardware Requirements
Out-of-Building multiline voice terminals require IROB units. Single-line voice terminals require
carbon protection devices and must be connected to ports on the TN742 or TN746 Analog Line CP.
Connectivity information is provided in Section 4, “Hardware Description.”

Features and Services
Paging System Access
Description
This feature provides users with dial access or feature button access to paging equipment.
System 25 can provide an interface to paging systems that require a ground start trunk port, a loop
start trunk port, or an industry-standard tip/ring station line port. The exact interface depends upon
the paging system’s requirements. System 25 can also support single-zone, simple amplifier type
paging systems that require contact closure (the equivalent of a push-to-talk button) by using a
paging system adapter, or by using a special Auxiliary Trunk CP (TN763) with its supporting
hardware.
A single-line, multiline voice terminal, or ATL cordless telephone user (including the attendant) can
access paging equipment by dialing the appropriate paging system access code. Depending upon
the capabilities and options of the paging system it may be necessary to dial individual zones once
the paging equipment has been accessed. (A zone is a number of paging loudspeakers that form a
logical group. A zone might include all of the loudspeakers in a given room, or all of the
loudspeakers in all of the areas of a building that share a common function. For example, all of the
loudspeakers on a factory floor might be grouped into one zone, while all of the loudspeakers in all
of the conference rooms might be grouped into another zone.)
In most modern paging systems, paging zones are provided by the paging equipment and selected
by passing dial codes to the paging equipment. If you want to retain one or more older paging
systems, a similar form of zone paging may be achieved by using an Auxiliary Trunk CP and up to
three single zone paging systems. The Auxiliary Trunk CP provides three ports which may be used
to interface paging systems. Each of these ports is identified by a unique access code. A fourth code
is used to access all three paging systems (zones) simultaneously.
A paging system that is interfaced to System 25 via a ground start trunk port, a loop start trunk port,
or an auxiliary trunk port can be administered to be dial restricted. This restricts users from
accessing the equipment unless they are assigned DSS buttons with paging access codes. A paging
system that is interfaced to System 25 via an industry-standard tip/ring station line port cannot be
administered to be dial restricted.
Considerations
System 25 can support virtually any new or in-place third-party paging system. Most modern paging
systems interface through a ground start trunk port, a loop start trunk port, or an industry-standard
tip/ring station line port. System 25 can also support paging systems that require a generic interface
with contact closure by using a paging system adapter, or by using an Auxiliary Trunk CP with its
supporting hardware. Selection of a particular port as an interface for a paging system will be
governed by the requirements of the specific paging system involved.
2-244
November 1995
Paging System Access
System 25 supports all AT&T PagePac* voice paging systems. The following are the most
common interface arrangements for System 25 and AT&T voice paging systems.
PagePac 20 (with ZoneMate): This paging system interfaces with either a ground start or
loop start trunk port. No additional equipment is required. Zone paging is provided by the
ZoneMate.
PagePac 20 (without ZoneMate): The PagePac 20 PowerMate may be used alone as a single
zone paging amplifier. If the PowerMate is used without a ZoneMate, each PowerMate
requires either a port on an Auxiliary Trunk CP (with an Auxiliary Trunk Interface and a
Paging/Dial Dictation Interface), or a port on a Loop, Ground, or T/R/analog CP, and a
Paging System Adapter. Zone paging is provided by the Auxiliary Trunk CP, if used. Each
of the three auxiliary ports available for paging system access may connect to a paging
system, providing up to three paging zones.
PagePac VS: PagePac VS may be interfaced with System 25 by means of a loop start trunk
port or a tip/ring station line port. PagePac VS provides a built-in interface card which
cannot be removed or changed. No other interface options are supported for PagePac VS.
PagePac Voice Paging Systems: The larger, complete paging systems in our product line are
collectively known as PagePac Voice Paging Systems. They are currently available in sizes
ranging from 50 Watts to 200 Watts and, when ordered as complete systems, are shipped
with a Type C Applique. This Type C Applique may be optioned during installation to
interface with a ground start trunk port, loop start trunk port, or a tip/ring station line port.
PagePac Voice Paging Amplicenter: The Amplicenter is the amplifier component of the
complete PagePac Voice Paging System. If the Amplicenter is used alone as a single zone
paging amplifier it requires either a port on an Auxiliary Trunk CP (with an Auxiliary Trunk
Interface and a Paging/Dial Dictation Interface) or a Paging System Adapter. Zone paging is
provided by the Auxiliary Trunk CP, if used with multiple Amplicenter. Each of the three
ports available for paging system access may connect to a paging system, providing up to
three paging zones.
Paging is particularly useful when used in conjunction with the Park feature. When a user is
away from his or her location and receives a call, the call can be answered and parked by
another user. The called party can then be paged and told what extension number to call to
retrieve the parked call. The called party can then retrieve the call from any voice terminal.
Interactions
The following features interact with Paging System Access.
Direct Inward Dialing (DID): A DID call may access a paging code. This allows an outside
user to dial in and utilize the Paging System. Dial restricting the paging code will block this
interaction.

2-245
FEATURES AND SERVICES
Tie Trunks: Incoming Tie Trunk calls can access paging ports connected to Auxiliary Trunk
circuit packs. If administered as a Tandem Trunk, an incoming Tie Trunk can also access
other types of paging ports.
Administration Requirements
Ground Start or Loop Start Trunk Port:
●
Requires a port on a ZTN76 Ground Start Trunk CP or ZTN77 Loop Start Trunk CP
for each interface required. If the paging equipment requires a contact closure
(equivalent to a push-to-talk switch) a paging system adapter must be installed
between the port and the paging system.
●
Assign as Paging Port. (Action = 16; 1 = Yes or 0 = No). Default = No.
●
Assign Trunk Access Code.
●
Dial restrict zone (yes or no).
●
Assign other appropriate CO trunk parameters.
Auxiliary Trunk Port:
●
A port on a TN763 Auxiliary Trunk CP, an Auxiliary Trunk Interface and a Paging/Dial
Dictation Interface are required for each interface.
●
Assign Paging access code for each paging system (maximum = 3) to be provided.
●
Dial restrict each paging system (yes or no)
●
Assign an “All Zones” access code.
Multiline Voice Terminal Port:
●
Assign DSS button with paging zone access code as required.
Hardware Requirements
Requires a paging system that is compatible with telephone systems. Each paging system
requires at least one suitable System 25 port. Selection of the type of System 25 port (loop
start, ground start, Auxiliary trunk or tip/ring station line port) is dependent on the paging
system or its adapter. If a choice is available, the recommended method of interfacing is via
CO trunk ports (either loop or ground start).
Some customer-provided equipment, typically older systems, may require contact closure to
control the paging equipment. In this case either a paging adapter or a port on a TN763
Auxiliary Trunk CP must be used. If an Auxiliary Trunk CP is used to support multiple paging
systems (up to three) each paging system constitutes a single zone and an additional dial
code may be administered to access all zones simultaneously.

Park
Park
Description
This feature allows a user to put a call into a special hold/parked condition so that it can be
picked up from any voice terminal in the system. It is used in three typical applications:
●
Basic Park: A user parks a call and then picks it up at another voice terminal.
●
Meet-Me-Conference:
A conference member parks the conference and pages
another employee to join the conference.
●
Transfer: A user parks a call and then pages another employee to pick up the call.
A user parks a call by first putting it on hold and then dialing the Park code ( ✶ 5 ). The call
can subsequently be retrieved from any voice terminal by dialing the Park retrieval code ( ✶ 8 )
and the PDC of the parking station. In addition, any user active in a conference involving
fewer than five members may park the conference so that another user may join by dialing
✶ 8 and the parked-on number.
A multiline voice terminal user invokes Park by pressing HOLD to place a call or conference
on hold, then pressing an idle System Access button and dialing ✶ 5. A single-line voice
terminal user invokes the feature by pressing the switchhook to place the call or conference
on hold, then dialing ✶ 5. If the call is successfully parked, the user receives confirmation
tone and then recall dial tone. If the call cannot be parked, reorder tone is received. In the
latter case, to return to the held call, the user presses the held call button (multiline sets) or
flashes the switchhook (single-line sets).
The parking station may return to a parked call or conference without affecting the park
state. The multiline voice terminal user may return by pressing the held call button. The
single-line user may return by flashing the switchhook.
When the single-line user goes on-hook, the parked call is removed from the terminal and
cannot be reentered.
To retrieve a parked call, a user must obtain system dial tone, dial ✶ 8 and then dial the PDC
of the station that parked the call. If the call is not retrieved within an administered interval
(default = 2 minutes) the call will return to the user that parked the call. At multiline voice
terminals, returning calls always ring at System Access (SA) buttons, regardless of the type
of button on which the parked call arrived originally. If no idle SA button is available, calls
attempting to return will remain parked until one becomes idle.
Note:
Multiline voice terminals without SA buttons cannot park calls (they receive
reorder tone when they try to do so). However, in a principal station/bridging
station arrangement, a bridging station without SA buttons can park calls on
its Bridged Access buttons because returning calls would ring at the principal
station.
An attendant can park a call with the same procedure as a multiline voice terminal user. In
addition, if the Attendant Position is equipped with a Selector Console, up to eight trunk calls
can be parked on DXS buttons dedicated to the Park function. The attendant parks a call by
2-249
FEATURES AND SERVICES
pressing an idle Park button. The status LED of the parked line on the Attendant Console
winks and the status LED of the Park button on the Selector Console lights steadily. A call
parked with the Selector Console is retrieved by dialing ✶ 8 and the access code assigned to
the dedicated Park button.
A call parked by the attendant using the same procedure as a multiline voice terminal user
will return to a SA button on a Direct Trunk Attendant Console (DTAC) or a LOOP button on
a Switched Loop Attendant Console (SLAC) if it is not picked up within the administered
return interval. A call parked on the Selector Console but not picked up within the interval
will return to the RTN-DA button (DTAC) or a LOOP button (SLAC), in the same manner as
any other unanswered call.
Each voice terminal user (except an attendant with a Selector Console) can only park one
call at a time: a maximum of 24 calls can be parked in the system at one time. A call is no
longer parked when it is answered, when it returns to the parking terminal, or when it is
abandoned by the caller.
Considerations
Park can be used whenever a user engaged on a call needs to go elsewhere, and wishes to
complete the call from another terminal. Park also allows users to answer a call from any
voice terminal when paged.
In order to use the Park feature, a station must have at least one System Access button.
Interactions
The following features interact with Park.
Attendant Direct Extension Selection: Station-to-Station calls cannot be parked via the Park
buttons on the Attendant Selector Console.
Attendant Position Busy: If a call is parked on an attendant console and the attendant
console enters Position Busy mode, the parked call will return to the inactive console if not
answered within the administered interval (default = 2 minutes).
If a call is parked on the Selector Console by a Switched Loop attendant and the SLAC is
placed in the Position Busy mode, the parked call will return to the other active attendant
console, if not answered within the administered interval.
Bridging of System Access Buttons: A call parked by a principal station having bridged call
appearances at a bridging station must be retrieved by dialing ✶ 8 and the PDC of the
principal station. The principal station and the bridging station can enter the call without
affecting its parked state. If the call returns, it can be answered at the principal station or on
a bridged appearance.
If a bridging station is active on a bridged call appearance and activates Park, the call is
parked on the Personal Dial Code (PDC) number of the principal station, not of the bridging
station. If the parked call is not answered, it will return on the principal’s SA button.
2-250
Park
Callback Queuing: Queued calls cannot be parked unless they are part of a conference.
Reorder tone is returned whenever an illegal park is attempted, but the queued call is not
disconnected. If parked conference members drop out, leaving only a queued call, it will be
disconnected to prevent the illegal condition of a single queued call being parked.
Calling Restrictions: If the parking station is outward restricted or toll restricted, the recall
dial tone following a successful park cannot be used to avoid the restriction.
Conference: Parked conference calls do not return to the parking voice terminal. They
remain parked. Park may be used to place a conference on hold if it contains fewer than five
parties.
Display: When a parked call returns to a display station, screen 1 contains redirection symbol
“}” and PARK RTN; screen 2 contains calling party identification.
Exclusion: A call cannot be parked, and a parked call cannot be answered, if the Exclusion
feature is invoked on that call.
Intercept Treatment With Reorder Tone: An unsuccessful attempt to park a call due to
misdialing or attempting to park more than one call at a voice terminal results in Reorder
Tone.
Music-On-Hold: Parked calls (except conferences) receive music.
Personal Line: A parked Personal Line is bridgeable by any user with a button appearance
of that line. Bridging on to the connection does not answer the parked call. The parked call
will not return to the parking voice terminal user in this case.
Remote Access: Remote Access callers cannot use the Park feature.
Transfer: Single-line voice terminals cannot transfer parked calls.
Administration Requirements
Special Feature Port, Attendant Selector Console:
●
Assign selector console Park codes.
●
Number of seconds before Park return (0-240; default = 120).

FEATURES AND SERVICES
Personal Dial Code (PDC)
Description
A Personal Dial Code (PDC) consisting of one to four digits is assigned to each voice
terminal in the system. The PDC serves as the “extension number” of its terminal. Each
PDC can also be associated, through system administration, with the name of the terminal’s
user; terminals that have no specific users, such as lobby or conference room sets, can be
assigned appropriate place or function names.
A special quality of PDCs is their portability; users can “carry” their PDCs with them when
they temporarily go to another terminal. A user can “sign in” his or her PDC at “away”
terminals and receive calls originally directed to the home terminal. Upon leaving the
temporary location, the user “signs out” the PDC so that calls will again ring at the home
terminal. (For information on the applications of these procedures, refer to the “Following”
feature description.)
Analog data endpoints with modems are also assigned PDCs.
Data Dial Codes (DDCs).
Digital data endpoints have
Floating Personal Dial Codes (FPDCs) are assigned to users who do not have their own
voice terminals. These users can sign in their FPDCs at any station in the system and
receive their calls there. The system can be administered to force calls to FPDCs that are
not signed in anywhere to ring at the Attendant Console(s). FPDCs can also be reserved and
assigned to visitors who expect to receive calls.
Considerations
The Personal Dial Code (PDC) feature provides flexibility for users and visitors. Visitors,
once assigned a FPDC, can inform callers and the attendant. Calls can then be directed to
the voice terminal where the FPDC is signed in. Calls to FPDCs that are not signed in
anywhere may be directed to the attendant for further handling.
Up to 200 PDCs and 300 FPDCs can be assigned in a system.
Interactions
The following features interact with Personal Dial Code.
Coverage: Calls to a FPDC signed in at a voice terminal receive the coverage of that
terminal. Unanswered calls to a PDC at an away terminal return to the home terminal and
receive the home terminal’s coverage treatment; they do not receive the away terminal’s
coverage.
Direct Inward Dialing: In systems with DID service, PDCs, FPDCs, DGC access codes,
DDCs, and facility access codes may match the last 2, 3 or 4 digits of DID numbers. For
example, the code matching DID number 555-2345 may be 45, 345 or 2345, depending on
the system dial plan.
2-252
Personal Dial Code (PDC)
Direct Station Selection: If an attempt is made to program a FPDC (rather than a PDC) on a
Flex DSS button, Reorder Tone is received.
Display: Calls to a FPDC signed in at a station covered by an attendant console receive
coverage. However, the attendant display will show the PDC and name of the covered
station, not the FPDC.
Administration Requirements
System:
●
Route calls for unassigned DID numbers to the Attendant (yes or no; default = yes).
●
Route calls for not-signed-in FPDCs to the attendant (yes or no; default = yes).
●
Add/Delete FPDCs.
2-253
FEATURES AND SERVICES
Personal Lines
Description
This feature provides a dedicated outside line for multiline voice terminal or ATL cordless
telephone users.
Unlike pooled facilities, which can be accessed via dial codes, Personal Lines can be
accessed only via a dedicated feature button, and provide both incoming and outgoing
service. Up to 16 terminals may share a Personal Line. Up to four parties may be off-hook
on the line at the same time (the line itself is the fifth conferee). When the line is busy, its
status LED lights at all terminals on which the line appears. Ringing may be provided
optionally to one or more of the terminals sharing the line.
For each Personal Line, one station is administered as the principal (owner). The coverage
of that terminal determines the coverage of the Personal Line.
Considerations
Personal Lines provide facilities to users who desire direct access to the exchange network.
In addition, Personal Line appearances are provided on the Direct Trunk Attendant Console
for general use trunks. Appearances of these lines may also be provided at selected
multiline voice terminals to ensure coverage when the attendant is not available. DID trunks
cannot be terminated on Personal Line buttons.
Personal Lines provide direct access for callers, bypassing the attendant. In some cases,
they may substitute for DID service.
Interactions
The following features interact with Personal Line.
Attendant Console, Direct Trunk: On the Direct Trunk Attendant Console (DTAC), trunks are
terminated as Personal Lines. The DTAC can accommodate a maximum of 26 Personal
Lines (24 is the practical limit).
Attendant Console, Switched Loop:
Loop Attendant Console.
Personal Lines cannot be terminated on a Switched
Coverage: The coverage of the principal station (owner) determines coverage for the line.
Direct Group Calling: The same trunk may be used as a Personal Line and also be directed
to a DGC group. If an incoming call is not answered by the DGC group after a
predetermined number of rings, ringing and LED flashing will be transferred to all button
appearances of the line (unless a DGC delay announcement is provided).
Hold: A Personal Line cannot be placed on hold if any other stations that share the line are
also off-hook on the line.
2-254
Personal Lines
Line Selection (Prime Line Preference):
Personal Line.
Prime Line Preference may be assigned to a
Park: A parked Personal Line is bridgeable by any user with a button appearance of that
line. Bridging on to the connection does not unpark the call; in this case, the parked call will
not return to the parking user.
Pickup: After a call is picked up from a Personal Line button, the called terminal can still
enter the call.
Pooled facility: A Personal Line may also be a member of a pooled facility group.
Toll Restriction (see “Calling Restrictions”): A call over a Personal Line is subject to the toll
restrictions of the station on which the call was placed.
Administration Requirements
Voice Terminal Port:
●
Assign Personal Line trunk number.
●
Assign Personal Line feature button.
●
Make this the Principal Station (yes or no).
●
Enable Personal Line Ringing (yes or no).
Hardware Requirements
Requires port assignments for each trunk interface to be provided and a button termination
on multiline voice terminals.
2-255
FEATURES AND SERVICES
Pickup
Description
This feature allows a user to answer a call ringing at another voice terminal. There are two
forms of Pickup: (1) Directed and (2) Group.
Directed Pickup:
Directed Pickup allows calls to other voice terminals, including Automatic Intercom calls and
calls ringing at coverage buttons. to be “picked up” by dialing the Pickup code ( ✶ 7 ) and the
ringing terminal’s PDC. Picked-up calls remain accessible at the call appearance button of
multiline terminals, but are no longer available at single-line terminals.
A ringing call can be answered at a busy single-line voice terminal by pressing the
switchhook, which will place the current call on hold, dialing ✶ 7, and the ringing voice
terminal’s PDC.
This is a standard feature available at every voice terminal. No administration is required.
Also, this feature cannot be turned off or restricted.
Group Pickup:
Group Pickup permits calls to another terminal in the Pickup group to be answered. Any
ringing call, including Automatic Intercom and coverage calls, is eligible for Pickup.
A member of a Pickup Group can answer any call to any other member of the group by
dialing the Group Pickup code ( ✶ 70 ).
Up to 16 groups (with up to 16 voice terminals in each group) can be set up. Each Pickup
group can have a maximum of two simultaneous ringing calls eligible for Pickup treatment at
a time, and the calls are picked up in order of arrival. A user can be assigned to only one
Pickup Group.
Considerations
With Pickup, users do not have to leave their own voice terminal to answer a call at a nearby
voice terminal. Instead, a user simply lifts the handset and dials an access code. This
allows calls that may go unanswered to be handled quickly and efficiently.
The call must be administered to ring at the voice terminal for which Pickup is attempted.
Otherwise the attempt will be blocked.
If the picked-up call was to a multiline terminal, the called terminal can still enter the call. If
the called terminal was a single-line terminal, it cannot enter the call once it is picked up.
Pickup cannot be invoked after the call has been answered.
2-256
Pickup
If no eligible calls are ringing, attempting pickup results in reorder tone.
Interactions
The following features interact with Pickup.
Bridging of System Access Buttons: Pickup is a station-oriented feature. Thus, calls ringing at a
principal System Access (SA) button can be picked up by members of the principal’s Pickup Group;
calls ringing at a Bridged Access (BA) button can be picked up by members of the bridging station’s
Pickup Group. If a user dials the Group Pickup access code while active on a BA button, the system
interprets this as an attempt to pick up a call in the Pickup Group of the bridging station, not of the
principal station.
Calls ringing at either a principal SA button or an associated BA button can be picked up by using
the Directed Pickup feature.
Callback Queuing: A callback call cannot be picked up.
Coverage: When a call is directed to a coverage station and the call is answered via Pickup, all
Cover buttons associated with the call go idle.
Personal Line: After a call is picked up from a Personal Line (PERS LINE) button, the called
terminal can still enter the call.
Remote Access: Remote Access callers cannot use the Pickup feature.
Administration Requirements
Voice Terminal Port:
●
Assign Pickup Group Number (1-16, none; default = none).

Features and Services
Pooled Facility - Dial Access
Description
This feature allows multiline and single-line voice terminal and ATL cordless telephone users to
access a common pool of trunks by dialing a facility access code.
Up to 16 facility access codes can be assigned (one per trunk group). The codes can be one to four
digits in length. A group of similar trunks assigned the same access code is referred to as a trunk
group. Additional information is provided in the “Trunk Groups” feature description.
After going off-hook on a System Access or Loop button, receiving system dial tone, and dialing a
facility access code, the user will be connected to an idle trunk. (However, the connection will not
be made if the terminal is restricted from dialing this trunk group or if dial access is restricted, in
general, to trunks in the group.) The LEDs associated with the System Access button will be lighted,
and the user may complete the call. Single-line users do not receive LED indications of the status
of the pool. An attempt to originate a call on a busy facility will result in Reorder Tone (fast busy).
Considerations
Pooled Facility-Dial Access provides users of single-line terminals, or multiline voice terminals
without Direct Facility Access (FACILITY) buttons, access to the system’s pooled facilities.
Interactions
The following features interact with Pooled Facility-Dial Access.
Bridging of System Access Buttons: A station originating a call on a Bridged Access button and
using a facility access code is granted access to that pool according to the Calling Restrictions
assigned to the bridging station, not the principal station.
Direct Inward Dialing (DID): Access to pooled facilities via DID is permitted. This includes access
to WATS, FX, tie trunks, private lines, dictation equipment, and paging systems. This access is
provided by selecting facility access codes so that they will match DID numbers.
Equal Access: Equal Access calls are allowed from toll restricted stations that have outward calling
capability via pooled facilities (701 and 801 trunks) administered with “ORIGINATING LINE
Screening”. Originating Line Screening is a service provided by the Local Exchange Carrier (LEC)
identifying the call as one which should not have the operator bill the originating facility.
Outward and Facility Access Restriction (see “Calling Restrictions”): A terminal can be denied
dial access to some or all pooled facilities, or may be totally restricted from making any outside
calls.
Toll Restriction (See “Calling Restrictions”): Denies the use of pooled facilities for certain toll
calls, but does not block access to the pooled facilities.

Features and Services
Pooled Facility - Direct Access
Description
This feature allows multiline voice terminal users to access a common pool of trunks via a Direct
Facility access (FACILITY) button.
Upon pressing a FACILITY button and going off-hook, a multiline voice terminal user is connected
to a common pool of outside trunks (i.e., CO, FX, WATS, tie). If the Status and I-Use LEDs
associated with the button light steadily, the user may complete the call. If no idle trunk is available
(facility busy indication), an attempt by the user to originate a call will be denied and the I-Use
indicator will be Off. A user requiring access to several different trunk pools must have a separate
FACILITY button for each pool.
If all trunks in a pool are busy, the Status LED will be lighted. The user may press FACILITY and
remain on-hook to receive the busy-to-idle reminder when a trunk becomes available. The busy-toidle reminder is a short burst of tone that will be heard when a trunk in the pool becomes available.
When Prime Line Preference is assigned to a FACILITY button, the button must be pressed to
invoke the busy-to-idle reminder, even though the I-Use LED is lighted.
Refer to the “Trunk Groups” feature description for additional information.
Considerations
Pooled Facility-Direct Access provides easy access to the exchange network for users who make
many outside calls. The feature eliminates the need to dial a facility access code. In addition, the
associated status LED provides pool busy/idle status and the busy-to-idle reminder.
Interactions
The following features interact with Pooled Facility-Direct Access.
Automatic Route Selection (ARS): Multiline voice terminal users who have presses FACILITY to
activate busy-to-idle reminder must wait until all queued ARS users have been serviced.
Equal Access: Equal Access calls are allowed from toll-restricted stations that have outward
calling capability via pooled facilities (701 and 801 trunks) administered with “ORIGINATING LINE
SCREENING.” Originating Line Screening is a service provided by the Local Exchange Carrier
(LEC), identifying the call as one which should not have the operator bill the originating facility.
Facility Access Restriction (see “Calling Restrictions”): A trunk group may be reserved for a
group of users by dial-access restricting the trunks. In this way, only users who have a FACILITY
button, a Personal Line appearance, or who use ARS can use the trunks.
Line Selection (Prime Line Preference): Pressing a FACILITY button to invoke the busy-to-idle
reminder overrides Prime Line Preference.
Toll Restriction (see “Calling Restrictions”): Toll-restricted voice terminals receive standard tollrestriction treatment on all FACILITY buttons.

Features and Services
Power Failure Transfer (PFT)
Description
This feature provides service to and from the CO for a limited number of prearranged single-line
voice terminals during a commercial power failure (or when voltage drops below 90 volts for longer
than 250 milliseconds) and during other service interruptions. Any loop start or ground start trunk
may be arranged to terminate at a specific station on a one-to-one basis. When a failure occurs,
these prearranged connections are made, bypassing the system and connecting terminals directly
to the CO trunks. System features and restrictions are not available during this time.
The system supports up to four Emergency Transfer Units (ETUs). Each ETU can provide up to five
voice terminals with direct connection to CO trunks.
When the system connects to dial pulse trunks, only rotary sets may be used to support Power
Failure Transfer (PFT). When the system interfaces the CO via touch-tone trunks, touch-tone
single-line voice terminals are used as PFT stations.
When power is restored, the following will be restored to their previous state:
1. Night Service mode (on or off).
2. User-programmed Flex DSS numbers.
3. PDCs signed in at a “home station” or an “away station” remain signed in there; if Forwarding
has been activated for a station, it remains in effect.
4. If a voice terminal has been removed/not removed from a DGC group, the terminal will remain
in that state.
5. User-programmed Repertory Dialing numbers.
6. All system/station features programmed through system administration.
Considerations
Power Failure Transfer provides emergency incoming and outgoing telecommunications service to
a number of predesignated single-line voice terminals. This is particularly important for
organizations providing public services such as fire, police, medical, etc.
Hardware Requirements
The 10B Emergency Transfer Unit (ETU) in Figure 2-38 supports up to five Power Failure Transfer
(PFT) sets and a DID make-busy function. Up to four ETUs can be supported for a maximum of 20
PFT sets. The sets can be connected to selected Loop Start or Ground Start trunks. If Ground Start
trunks are used, a KS 23566,L1 Ground Start Button must be provided at each PFT set.
2-262
November 1995
Power Failure Transfer (PFT)
Only FCC registered single-line voice terminals may be used for PFT stations. Rotary sets
must be used for dial pulse PFT trunks; touch-tone sets must be used for touch-tone PFT
trunks.
In the event of a Power Failure Transfer (switch has lost power or a major fault has
occurred) a contact closure is provided to the Central Office (CO) over a dedicated pair of
wires. The CO then makes busy all DID trunks. When power is restored, the closure is
removed and the CO restores DID service. External alarm contacts are provided on the front
of the ETU for use as required.
Note:
It is recommended that customers with DID service make provisions with
their CO to provide this arrangement.
The ETUs are mounted on the cross-connect backboard. Connections are via 25-pair
receptacle-ended (CO and SIP) and plug-ended (switch line and trunk) connectors. Modular
jacks are provided for the -48V control signal from the CPU (Call Processor Unit) and for
additional ETUs. Screw terminals are provided for the connection of external alarms.
When calculating Unit Loading (see Section 5, “Unit Loads”), all ETU loading counts against
Cabinet 1.
The 106 ETU is mounted on the cross-connect field as shown in Section 6, “Environmental
Requirements.”
ETU Power Failure Transfer connections are shown in Figure 2-39. Part (a) on the figure
shows a single-line voice terminal that has been connected as a Power Failure Transfer
station. In normal operation, the Call Processor CP supplies -48V dc to the ETU. The voice
terminal is connected through the ETU to the station port CP and can support all calling
activities. The trunk connection through the ETU to the trunk port supports normal trunk
calls.
Part (b) on Figure 2-39
occurred. The transfer is
through the system are
trunks are established. A
shows the ETU connections when a Power Failure Transfer has
initiated by the removal of the -48V dc to the ETU. All connections
dropped, and direct connections between PFT stations and CO
contact closure toward the CO makes all DID trunks busy.
When the system is again able to process calls, normal service is automatically restored
A multiple ETU arrangement is shown in Figure 2-40. As discussed earlier, separate -48V dc
control signals from the Call Processor are provided via legs 7 and 8 on Octopus cable C2.
The 25-pair cable from the Analog “Line” CP provides connectivity for eight voice terminals
at the Line input to the ETU. Since the ETU supports only five PFT stations, three of the
voice terminals are wired straight through the ETU and are not switched during service
interruptions. A similar condition exists for the 25-pair cable (D) from the CO Trunk CP to
the Trunk input of the ETU. Three of the eight trunk port appearances are wired straight
through the ETU to the CO and are not switched. Trunk ports connected by legs 2 and 3 of
the splitter cable are wired directly to the TAE Block.

Description
This feature enables system users to store numbers for access by feature buttons or code
dialing. Multiline voice terminal users can program numbers on REP DIAL and FLEX DSS
buttons. Both multiline and single-line terminal users can store Personal Speed Dialing
numbers. FLEX DSS buttons provide access to inside extension numbers only; REP DIAL
buttons and Personal Speed Dialing are used for account codes and outside numbers
(maximum of 28 digits and 25 digits, respectively).

Programming Procedures
Program mode may be entered either of the following methods:
●
At any voice terminal, by dialing the programming access code (#4).
●
At terminals equipped with a Test/Program switch, by moving the switch to position
P; this method cannot be used at Switched Loop Attendant Consoles (SLACs).
If the code is used to enter program mode, the terminal remains in program mode until the
user goes on-hook or a timeout occurs. If the switch is used to enter program mode, the
terminal remains in program mode until the switch is returned to the midpoint between P and
T; the system will send a single-ring reminder every 60 seconds until the switch is
repositioned.
Voice terminals equipped with a display enhance the programming procedure by displaying a
prompt on the screen and then the digits as they are dialed. Refer to “Interactions” for
additional information.
Programming a number always removes the number that was previously stored in the same
location. If a user wants to remove an old number and not replace it with a new one, Step 3
in both of the following procedures should be skipped.
2-268
Program
To Program a Number by Using the Code:
1.

FEATURES AND SERVICES
Considerations
The Program feature allows users to assign their own Personal Speed Dialing/Flex
DSS/Repertory Dialing numbers. This is particularly useful where working arrangements or
personnel responsibilities change.
Users cannot place or answer calls while in the program mode. Incoming calls will receive
Busy Tone.
In the unlikely event that a number contains more digits than are free in the common
Personal Speed Dialing/Repertory Dialing memory (approximately 34100), reorder tone will
be returned after the indication of where this number is to be stored (see Procedures,
above).
Interactions
The following features interact with Program.
Bridging of System Access Buttons: A bridging station user can program only the Personal
Speed Dialing codes, REP DIAL buttons, and FLEX DSS buttons associated with the bridging
station, not with the principal station.
Display: When the user of a display-equipped voice terminal enters Program Mode, a
prompt is displayed on the terminal screen.
Screen 1
PROGRAM
Once the user begins to dial digits, the prompt is removed. The dialed digits are displayed,
beginning on Screen 1 and continuing on Screen 2, if necessary.
Screen 1
2653
Character position 16 on Screen 1 is reserved for queue data, which the system continues to
update for SLACs and DGC terminals.
The Program display remains on screen until the user selects the button or code to be
programmed. After confirmation tone is returned, the PROGRAM prompt is again displayed.
The user can then go through additional programming sequences, if desired. After
programming is completed, the user can go on-hook or exit from the Program Mode to
Normal Mode by switchhook change (if the mode was entered by dialing #4) or by returning
the PROGRAM switch to its neutral position (non-SLAC terminals).
Remote Access: Remote Access callers cannot use the Program feature.

FEATURES AND SERVICES
Recall
Description
Users of single-line voice terminals that have RECALL buttons can obtain System 25 recall
dial tone by pressing the button. Pressing RECALL is equivalent to briefly pressing and
releasing the switchhook (switchhook flash), which is the required method of getting recall
dial tone at a terminal not equipped with the RECALL button.
Multiline voice terminals are administered for either manual or automatic activation of the
Callback Queuing feature. Operation of the RECALL button is the manual method. Refer to
the “Callback Queuing” feature description for complete information. Use of the RECALL
button for callback does not interfere with its Centrex functions, described in the next
paragraph.
The RECALL button on a multiline voice terminal can be used, under specialized conditions,
to send a switchhook flash to the Central Office (for example, to access Centrex services).
However, it can never be used to send a switchhook flash to the System 25.
Interactions
The following feature interacts with Recall.
Callback Queuing: The RECALL button can be used to send switchhook flash to Centrex
trunks. If a conference exists with a queuable tone and a Centrex trunk, the first push of
RECALL queues the call. A second push of RECALL is needed to send switchhook flash to
the Central Office.
Administration Requirements
For Centrex operation, stations must not be assigned toll restriction, and the Centrex trunks
must be administered as Type 805.
2-272
Remote Access
Remote Access
Description
This feature allows a caller to dial into a System 25 from the public network using a predetermined
7- or 10-digit number and use some features and services. The caller may be required to dial a
barrier (security) code after reaching the system to access the features and services.
System administration can assign CO, FX, or INWATS trunks for Remote Access calls. These
trunks can be dedicated to Remote Access or shared with other kinds of calling. On dedicated
trunks, all incoming calls receive special Remote Access treatment. On shared trunks, Remote
Access is allowed only during night service times; at other times, incoming calls receive standard
trunk treatment.
If DID service is in use, a DID number (otherwise unassigned) can be administered for Remote
Access. In older releases (with or without barrier codes), the system will answer calls to this DID
number, return special dial tone to the caller and route the call to the attendant. In Release R3V3,
when no barrier code is required calls are answered as in the older releases. If the systems is
administered for barrier code use, the call is not completed and the calling party receives reorder
tone.
Note: For security reasons, it is NOT recommended that Remote Access be used without
barrier codes.
When the system recognizes an incoming call as a Remote Access call, it determines whether the
trunk is shared. If it is, and if night service is not active, the call can be routed to a personal line
appearance or to a DGC group. If neither of these answering points is administered, the call goes to
an attendant for handling.
If the trunk is dedicated to Remote Access or if night service is active, the caller gets special dial
tone. If a barrier code is not required, the caller can now dial the desired number or feature access
code. Calling privileges of the caller are determined by a system-wide default Class of Restriction
(COR).
If a barrier code is required and night service is active after the second dial tone times out
(dedicated or shared remote access service), reorder tone is heard by the caller, unless a Remote
Access Night Service backup station has been assigned. For this case, the back-up station is rung.
If no barrier code is required and dial tone times out, reorder tone is heard by the caller.
If a barrier code is required, the caller dials five or more predetermined digits on hearing the special
dial tone and receives second dial tone if the barrier code matched an administered code. After the
second dial tone, the caller can call an internal number or feature access code, if allowed. The
specific barrier code dialed determines the calling privileges of the user. Up to 16 different barrier
codes can be administered for the system.
When the Remote Access caller is using a rotary voice terminal, dial pulses are not accepted by the
system after the special dial tone is returned. When dial tone times out, the caller hears reorder
tone.
If a bad barrier code is entered, reorder tone will be returned after all administered digits are
entered. If incomplete digits are dialed for the barrier code, an interdigit time out occurs and reorder
tone is applied. For either case, reorder tone remains on the call for 240 seconds, after which, the
call is dropped if the outside originator has not disconnected earlier.

2-273
Features and Services
If a Remote Access call reaches an inside station, the station can transfer the call back out of the
system, subject to System 25 trunk-to-trunk restrictions and the transferring station’s calling
restrictions. This is allowed even if the caller’s barrier code does not allow a direct call out.
Considerations
Using Remote Access, an employee of a company with a System 25 PBX can access system
facilities from home or other remote locations. This is a valuable feature for salesmen on the road
and people at small branch offices.
Stations receiving Remote Access calls can treat them like any other kind of incoming call and use
features such as Pickup and Forwarding.
Features requiring recall dial tone (for example, Park and Transfer) cannot be used by Remote
Access callers.
Security Considerations
Potential Abuse of the Feature
Unauthorized persons might learn the Remote Access telephone number, call into the System 25,
and make long-distance calls.
Techniques for Minimizing Abuse
1. Program Remote Access to require the caller to enter a password (called a barrier code)
before the System will allow access. Follow secure password procedures as described below:
Choosing Passwords
Passwords should be as many digits as possible and should not be obvious. Avoid those with
ascending digits (e.g., 1234), the same digits (e.g., 0000), digits corresponding to the
employee’s name (e.g., 5646 for John), the current year (e.g., 1993), the same number as
extension (e.g., extension 3455, password 3455), reverse extension (e.g., extension 3455,
password 5543), numbers that identify the user (e.g., social security, employee ID, room
number, etc.)
Establishing a Policy
As a safeguard against toll fraud, change passwords frequently. Set password expiration times
and tell users when the changes go into effect. Changing passwords routinely on a specific
date (such as the first of the month) helps users to remember to do so.
2. Block out-of-hours calling through Remote Access whenever possible.
3. Use the toll-restriction capabilities of your System 25 to restrict the long-distance calling ability
of Remote Access users as much as possible consistent with the needs of your business.
4. Protect your Remote Access telephone number. Only give it to people who need to know it,
and impress upon them the need to keep it secret.
5. Monitor your SMDR records and/or your Call Accounting System reports regularly for signs of
irregular calls.

Remote Access
Interactions
The following features interact with Remote Access.
Account Code Entry: This feature cannot be used by Remote Access callers.
Call Accountability: This feature cannot be used by Remote Access callers.
Calling Restrictions: A barrier code class of restriction (COR) has the same parameters as the
class of service permissions associated with stations. A system-wide default COR must be
administered for use if barrier codes are disabled. Barrier code CORs override the default COR.
Conference: This feature cannot be used by Remote Access callers.
Display: Since remote access calls are all incoming calls, the display at the receiving station
displays the trunk identification (assigned by user). Without a display, the receiving station has no
special indication that this is a remote access call.
A display set user who bridges onto a Personal Line appearance where a remote access call is
active will have the display updated for conference status.
Note that Remote Access trunks should be administered to visually identify them as such.
Direct Group Calling (DGC): Remote Access callers cannot attempt to log in or out of a DGC
group.
Equal Access: Equal Access will not be allowed when entered from a Remote Access trunk after
connection of an outgoing trunk. A reorder tone is added to the call when Equal Access is dialed.
Following: This feature cannot be used by Remote Access callers.
Forwarding: Remote Access calls to a System 25 station that has the Forwarding feature activated
will forward like any other incoming calls to the station.
Hold: This feature cannot be used by Remote Access callers.
Night Service, Directed: Remote Access trunks (dedicated or shared) cannot be given Directed
Night Service treatment.
Night Service, Trunk-Answer-from-Any-Station (TAAS): Remote Access trunks (dedicated or
shared) cannot be given TAAS Night Service treatment. Remote Access callers cannot answer
TAAS Night Service calls.
Park: This feature cannot be used by Remote Access callers.
Pickup: This feature cannot be used by Remote Access callers.
Personal Line: If a Remote Access trunk appears as a Personal Line on a station, and the call is
picked up at any time, any tone in the call will be removed and if the station is a display set, it will
indicate the trunk associated with the call.

Features and Services
Program Mode: This feature cannot be used by Remote Access callers.
Remote Initialization and Maintenance Service (RIMS): RIMS requires a unique barrier code and
carries special non-administrable restrictions.
Speed Dialing, Personal: This feature cannot be used by Remote Access callers.
Station Message Detail Recording (SMDR): Remote Access calls are included in the SMDR
records. The following unique data is presented for Remote Access calls (in addition to type, data,
time, and duration).
Remote Access-to Inside Number:
●
CALLED NUMBER field IN.
●
FAC field—the number of the incoming trunk.
●
STN field—the dial code of the called party; if the call timed out without any digit having
been dialed, the call goes to the attendant, and the attendant’s PDC is shown.
●
ACCOUNT field—the Barrier Code number.
Remote Access-to-Outside Number:
●
CALLED NUMBER field—the outside number dialed by the remote caller,
●
FAC field—the number of the outgoing trunk or trunk pool.
●
STN field—the number of the incoming trunk.
●
ACCOUNT field—the Barrier Code number.
A Remote Access call which timed out before barrier code dialing was complete or which had a
non-matching barrier code will be shown in the Station Message Detail Recording, regardless of
how long the call lasted. (For systems using a CAT, bad barrier code calls or remote access timeout
calls less than 30 seconds are shown as having a duration of 30 seconds to assure their display.)
To provide greater clarity associated with the types of failed Remote Access calls, the ACCOUNT
field displays the following:
Non-CAT
●
Bad Barrier Code - “BADBC_MATCHED##”
Note: ## is 00 through 14 and indicates the number of digits matched for the best
matched barrier code in the system.
●
Incomplete Barrier Code - “RACCESS_TIMEOUT”
CAT
●
Bad Barrier Code - “80” through “94.” (Note: 80 through 94 indicates the number of digits
most closely matching a barrier code in the system; e.g., 80 indicates zero digits matching;
81, one digit; 82, two digits; etc.)
●
Incomplete Barrier Code or Time Out - “70”
Transfer: This feature cannot be used by Remote Access callers.

Remote Administration Interface
Remote Administration Interface
Description
This feature provides dial-up access to the system’s administration port, either for a standard
system administration terminal or for a PC running Advanced Administration software.
Both read and write capability is provided with access to all system translation and fault tables. A
remote administration terminal can perform the same functions as the on-premises SAT.
Remote Administration allows remote access to the system by maintenance personnel, the System
Administrator, and others.
Security Considerations
See remarks appearing in the following section on “Remote Initialization and Maintenance Service
(RIMS).”
Interactions
Only one System Administration Terminal can be connected at one time.
Administration Requirements
Depends on the connecting arrangements selected (see below).
Hardware Requirements
Requires a remote SAT.
Requires that port #1 of the CPU/MEM CP be connected to: (1) a dedicated modem and dedicated
facility (private line or CO trunk), or (2) a dedicated modem connected to a tip ring station port, or
(3) an ADU connected to a data line port. See the “System Administration” feature description for
additional information. Connectivity information is also provided.

Features and Services
Remote Initialization and Maintenance Service (RIMS)
Description
Remote Initialization and Maintenance Service (RIMS) provides an AT&T technician remote access
to System 25. Using the RIMS feature, the technician can do System 25 initialization, ongoing
administration, and maintenance.
The remote administrator can initialize translations after the system is installed. Unless a hardware
change is required, the remote administrator can do ongoing administration without having to visit
the customers site. Similarly, to troubleshoot a problem, a technician can call the RIMS port and
check the Error Log to determine the probable cause of the trouble. The technician can clear
alarms remotely and decide whether a service dispatch is necessary.
Considerations
RIMS may not be available in some areas of the country.
Security Consideration
Potential Abuse of the Feature
Unauthorized access could disrupt your system programming or activate features that would permit
making long distance calls through-System 25.
Techniques for Minimizing Abuse
1. The System Administration capability of System 25 is protected by a password. Follow secure
password procedures as described below:
Choosing Passwords
Passwords should be as many digits as possible, and should not be obvious. Avoid those with
ascending digits (e.g., 1234), the same digits (e.g., 0000), digits corresponding to the
employee’s name (e.g., 5646 for John), the current year (e.g., 1993), the same number as
extension (e.g., extension 3455, password 3455), reverse extension (e.g., extension 3455,
password 5543), numbers that identify the user (e.g., social security, employee ID, room
number, etc.)
Establishing a Policy
As a safeguard against toll fraud, change passwords frequently. Set password expiration times
and tell users when the changes go into effect. Changing passwords routinely on a specific
date (such as the first of the month), helps users to remember to do so.

Remote Initialization and Maintenance Service (RIMS)
2. If you have a special telephone line connected to your System 25 for Remote Administration,
do one of the following:
●
Unplug the line when it is not being used.
●
Install a switch in the line to turn it off when it is not being used.
●
Install a security device, such as AT&T’s Remote Port Security Device.
In addition, keep the Remote Administration telephone number secret. Only give it to people
who need to know it, and impress upon them the need to keep it secret. Do not write the
telephone number on the System 25, the connecting equipment, or anywhere else in the
system room.
3. If your Remote Administration feature requires that someone in your office transfer the caller
to the Remote Administration extension, impress upon your employees the importance of
transferring only authorized individuals to the extension.
Interactions
A call to the RIMS port is logged by SMDR.
Administration Requirements
For a RIMS call to be made during initialization, at least one voice station and one trunk must be
translated. A “full-default” cold start can provide these translations.

Repertory Dialing
Repertory Dialing
Description
This feature allows multiline voice terminal users to store a telephone number, account code,
or feature access code in the system’s memory and associate that number with a REP DIAL
button. Pressing REP DIAL is equivalent to dialing the stored number. Individual numbers
can be up to 28 digits in length.
Programming the number is accomplished from the user’s voice terminal. Programming
procedures and other information can be found in the “Program” feature description.
Should the user attempt to enter more than 28 digits, Reorder Tone will be given.
The user can press REP DIAL under any of the following conditions:
1.
When off-hook receiving Dial Tone
2. When off-hook on a call on which more dialed digits are expected
3. When off-hook on a call and connected to an outgoing trunk (End-to-End Signaling
might apply in this case)
4. After pressing ACCT ENTRY or dialing the Account Code Entry access code.
When REP DIAL is pressed, the button’s status LED lights briefly and then goes dark.
Considerations
Repertory Dialing simplifies dialing long or frequently called numbers, and allows one-button
access to many features.
Interactions
The following features interact with Repertory Dialing.
Account Code Entry: An Account Code may be stored on a REP DIAL button. The REP
DIAL button should be pressed at the point where the account code would normally be
dialed.
Bridging of System Access Buttons: If a station user selects a bridged appearance for an
outgoing call and then presses a REP DIAL button, the digits programmed into the button are
outpulsed as they would be if the user had selected one of the station’s own System Access
buttons.
Calling Restrictions: A user can not use Repertory Dialing to access a number that he or
she is restricted from dialing.
2-279
FEATURES AND SERVICES
Display: When a call is placed by pressing a REP DIAL button, the characters stored are
displayed. If ✶ was programmed to store a pause, P is displayed in the position of the ✶ .
If ✶ was stored by programming # ✶ , only ✶ is displayed. If the button is not programmed,
REP DIAL is displayed.
Following/Forwarding: The associated activation and deactivation sequences (or portions of
them) can be stored on REP DIAL buttons.
Last Number Dialed: A number called by pressing a REP DIAL button is saved by the Last
Number Dialed feature.
Speed Dialing: Numbers already stored as System Speed Dialing numbers can also be
stored as Repertory Dialing numbers. Storing a System Speed Dialing code (#100-#189) on
a REP DIAL button saves memory space (compared to storing the whole number again on a
REP DIAL button).
Virtual Facilities: Virtual Facility codes can be stored on REP DIAL buttons.
Administration Requirements
Voice Terminal Port:
●
2-280
Assign Repertory Dialing (REP DIAL) buttons.
Send All Calls
Send All Calls
Description
This feature allows multiline voice terminal including ATL cordless telephone users to turn off
their ringers and invoke a “do not disturb” condition toward incoming calls. In addition,
users who have coverage or bridged appearances will have those calls directed immediately
to their covering and/or bridging stations, without the normal system ringing delay. Send All
Calls also allows covering users to temporarily remove their voice terminals from the
coverage path.
This feature is activated by pressing the SEND ALL CALLS button. It is deactivated by
pressing the button a second time.
Considerations
Send All Calls gives the user the option of having incoming calls sent directly to coverage or
making the terminal busy to incoming calls without sending them to coverage. The feature is
intended for occasional or temporary use.
Send All Calls must be assigned to a button that has a status light. The light turns on when
the feature is in effect.
The following types of calls always ring at a station, regardless of the status of Send All
Calls:
●
Automatic Intercom calls.
●
Directed Night Service calls.
●
Calls to an extension number that is logged in at the station.
Note:
●
Calls to a floating extension number do not ring when Send All Calls
is in effect.
Calls returning to a DTAC on RTN-BUSY or RTN-DA buttons.
Send All Calls cannot be assigned to a SLAC. The Attendant Position Busy feature provides
a similar capability.
When Send All Calls is in effect at a station and incoming calls are directed to coverage,
ringing at the sending station is not necessarily canceled completely. A single-ring reminder
for incoming calls is optional, assigned by the System Administrator for each Send All Calls
button.
On calls to non-busy stations where Send All Calls has been activated, the callers hear
ringing until a covering station answers, or, if the station is not covered, until the call is
dropped.
2-281
FEATURES AND SERVICES
Interactions
The following features interact with Send All Calls.
Bridging of System Access Buttons: The principal station can be administered so that
pressing the SEND ALL CALLS button will send ringing for incoming calls to its coverage
stations only, to its bridging stations only, or to both.
If ringing is sent to a Bridged Access (BA) button via Send All Calls, and if the BA button is
administered to not receive ringing, the call will flash (but not ring) at the BA button. If
ringing is sent to a BA button via Send All Calls, and if the BA button is administered to
receive ringing (immediate or delayed), then the call will ring immediately on the BA button.
Callback Queuing: Callback attempts to the originator are not affected by Send All Calls.
Call Waiting: A busy station with Send All Calls activated will receive call waiting tones; the
caller will hear special ringback. If the busy station then goes on-hook, single-ring reminder
will not be given for that waiting call.
Coverage (General): Send All Calls works in conjunction with the Coverage features at
covered and covering stations. At stations not associated with Coverage, Send All Calls
simply serves to silence the ringer on incoming calls; no redirection occurs.
If a station is translated to not send ringing to coverage when calls to this station are
unanswered, the Send All Calls feature overrides this instruction (ringing will be sent).
If a covering station activates Send All Calls, the station is removed from the coverage path
completely. Coverage calls will not be directed to the station.
Coverage, Group: If a station with Send All Calls activated has group coverage and all the
coverage receivers are busy, a call waits at the station while the system periodically checks
for an idle receiver. When one becomes available, the call is directed to the covering station.
Coverage, Individual: If a station with Send All Calls activated has only individual coverage
and all coverage receivers are busy, a call stays at the station; it does not go to coverage.
Display: When Send All Calls is invoked, the sending station still receives incoming call
information. If the calls are being sent to coverage, the proceeding-to-coverage descriptor
“c” appears in position 16.
Screen 1
146 Pearson,M c
Distinctive Ringing: Normal audible ringing is turned off for incoming calls when Send All
Calls is activated, unless single-ring reminder is administered.
Forwarding: Forwarding supersedes Send All Calls. A call forwarded from a station with
Send All Calls activated will not go to coverage or to bridging stations unless the call is not
answered at the forwarded-to station and returns. After returning, the call routes according
to the Send All Calls feature.
2-282
Send All Calls
Hands-Free Answer on Intercom: Activating Send All Calls will cause an active AUTO ANS
button to turn off. As long as the Send All Calls feature is in use, AUTO ANS cannot be
turned on.
Line Status Indications: The line status lights still flash for incoming calls when Send All
Calls is in effect even though normal ringing is cut off. The lights stop flashing when the
calls are answered by a covering station or dropped by the caller.
Personal Line: Ringing on Personal Lines is turned off by activation of Send All Calls
whether the station is the principal (owner) of the line or not. Personal Line calls follow the
coverage arrangements of the principal station. If the principal station is not covered, the
call will simply stay at the principal station until dropped (even if other stations with that
Personal Line have coverage).
Administration Requirements
Voice Terminal Port:
●
Assign Send All Calls button.
●
Assign single-ring reminder if desired.
●
Send ring to bridged stations only, to coverage stations only, or to both?

FEATURES AND SERVICES
Speaker
Description
Some 7300H-series voice terminals have a built-in loudspeaker that allows on-hook dialing,
group listening, and monitoring of call progress signals. The terminal user turns on the
speaker by pressing the SPEAKER button. Pressing the button at an idle terminal has the
same effect as lifting the handset: the user is connected to the selected line and hears Dial
Tone. An associated LED is lighted when the Speaker is on. Speaker volume may be
adjusted by the terminal’s volume control located on the left side of the set.
The speaker and associated LED are turned off by pressing SPEAKER again or by lifting the
handset. The latter operation connects the handset to the associated voice channel. When
using the handset, pressing SPEAKER will turn on the speaker to support the Group Listen
feature; pressing SPEAKER again will turn off the speaker and associated LED. Note that
once the user has lifted the handset, it is possible to return to “hands-free” operation only
by putting the call on hold, hanging up the handset, then reconnecting the call by pressing
SPEAKER. Hanging up the handset will terminate the call whether the speaker is on or off.
Note:
The built-in speaker provides one-way communication (listen only). The user
must pick up the handset to converse.
Considerations
The built-in speaker supports group listening, monitoring of calls (e.g., while waiting on hold),
and on-hook dialing.
Hardware Requirements
Only 7300H-series (MERLIN) voice terminals with a SPEAKER button support this feature.
Sets with a SPEAKERPHONE button have full speakerphone service, which provides twoway, on-hook calling.
2-284
Speakerphone Adjunct
Speakerphone Adjunct
Description
The speakerphone adjunct permits users of voice terminals not equipped with built-in
speakerphones to place and receive calls without lifting their handsets. The adjunct has an
On/Off switch, a switch to temporarily mute the microphone, status lamps, and a volume
control (for incoming voice only).
All voice terminal features operate normally with the speakerphone adjunct.
Lifting the handset during speakerphone operation automatically turns off the speakerphone.
The speakerphone may be turned on during a call by pressing the On/Off switch and hanging
up the handset.
Considerations
Speakerphone operation allows users to perform other activities while carrying on a
conversation. Speakerphones also facilitate conference calls.
Interactions
The following feature interacts with Speakerphone Adjunct.
Headset Adapter Adjunct: A voice terminal cannot have both a speakerphone adjunct and a
headset adapter adjunct.
Hardware Requirements
4A Speakerphone System
The 2500SM single-line voice terminal and 2991-type 10-Button MET set require a 4A
Speakerphone System. The 4A (Figure 2-41) provides a speaker and associated
microphone, indicator lamp and operating controls. The controls include a two position ON
OR QUIET/OFF rocker switch and a volume control.
The 4A Speakerphone requires an 85B1 power unit.
S101A/S102A Speakerphone (PEC 3163-HFU)
The S101A Speakerphone (Figure 2-41) is used with the 12-Button MET Set (7203M). The
S102A Speakerphone is used with 7300H-series voice terminals except the 5-Button and
HFAI sets.
The S101A/S102A speakerphones are equipped with a 4-foot connecting cord that plugs into
the voice terminal. Connecting cords are available in optional lengths of 18 inches and 14
feet.

Speed Dialing
Speed Dialing
Description
There are two types of Speed Dialing: (1) System Speed Dialing, and (2) Personal Speed
Dialing.
System Speed Dialing:
Allows the System Administrator to store up to 90 numbers (maximum of 28 characters in
length) that are accessible by dialing 3-digit codes from any voice or data terminal.
Examples of typical System Speed Dialing numbers include frequently-dialed DDD numbers
(together with leading facility access codes for WATS, FX etc.) and account codes.
The following special characters may be used in System Speed Dialing numbers.
CHAR.
FUNCTION
✶
Produces a 1.5 second pause. (Since System 25 does not have a
Dial Tone detector, judicious use of the pause character will help to
ensure that intermediate Dial Tones are obtained before more digits
are sent.)
#✶
Transmits an actual “ ✶ ”.
##
Transmits an actual “ # ”.
# 1xx
Represents a Virtual Facility code (where xx = 90-99). This may
appear only at the beginning of the stored number.
#8
Marks the beginning of End-to-End Signaling. (System begins
transmitting touch-tone signals to the far end switch.)
A user cannot use a Speed Dialing number for which he/she is toll restricted, outward
restricted, or facility access restricted.
System Speed Dialing Operation: To place a call using a System Speed Dialing number, the
user goes off-hook and presses the # button on the dial pad followed by the 3 digit code
assigned to the desired number. The system interprets the associated stored number as if it
were dialed directly. This includes analysis of the number for the various types of restriction.
This feature can also be used when entering account codes. After pressing ACCT ENTRY or
dialing “ ✶ 0 ”, the user can enter a System Speed Dialing code. The stored number
associated with the code (the account code) will be listed in the SMDR report.
Multiline voice terminals users may assign System Speed Dialing codes to Repertory Dialing
(REP DIAL) buttons.
2-291
FEATURES AND SERVICES
Personal Speed Dialing:
Allows users to program up to twenty Personal Speed Dialing numbers (maximum of 25
characters in length) that are accessible only from their terminals. The numbers are
accessed by dialing associated access codes (#20-#39).
Personal Speed Dialing is authorized on a per-station basis through System Administration.
The System Administrator will inform users if they can use this feature.
Refer to the “Program” feature description for more Information about programming
Personal Speed Dialing numbers.
If enough storage space is available in memory to allow assignment of a Personal Speed
Dialing number, confirmation tone will be returned after each number is programmed. If not,
reorder tone will be returned.
Note:
Personal Speed Dialing is voice terminal oriented, not PDC oriented. A user
who logs in at another terminal cannot use his/her Personal Speed Dialing
numbers.
Considerations
System Speed Dialing allows users to dial a number by simply dialing #100-#189. The
stored number associated with each code is (typically) a common-use phone number and is
programmed via System Administration.
Personal Speed Dialing allows users to program up to twenty numbers for their personal
use; these numbers can only be accessed from the terminal where originally programmed.
The system will compare the restrictions applicable for the voice terminal against the number
associated with the Speed Dialing code, then allow or deny the call just as if the number had
been dialed directly from the terminal.
Interactions
The following features interact with Speed Dialing.
Account Code Entry: Speed Dialing codes may be used to store account codes.
Bridging of System Access Buttons: Personal Speed Dialing is a station oriented feature. If a
station dials a Personal Speed Dialing code (#20-#39) while off-hook on a Bridged Access
button, the system will handle this call exactly as if the code was dialed from this station’s
System Access button.
Calling Restrictions: A terminal that is restricted from placing a particular call cannot avoid
restriction by using the Speed Dialing feature.
2-292
Speed Dialing
Data Terminal Dialing: System Speed Dialing codes can be entered during Data Terminal
Dialing. Personal Speed Dialing is not supported.
Display: When a call is placed by dialing a Personal Speed Dialing code, the characters
stored are displayed. If ✶ was programmed to store a pause, P is displayed in the position
of the ✶ . If ✶ was stored by programming # ✶ , only ✶ is displayed.
When a call is placed using a System Speed Dialing code, only the dialed code (#100-#189)
is displayed.
Last Number Dialed: A number called with a Speed Dialing code is saved by the Last
Number Dialed feature.
Personal Lines: The Speed Dialing feature is not accessible from Personal Lines.
Remote Access: Remote Access callers cannot use the Speed Dialing feature.
Repertory Dialing: Storing a System Speed Dialing code (#100-#189) on a REP DIAL button
saves memory space, compared to storing the whole number again on the REP DIAL button.
Speed Dialing: A Personal Speed Dialing number can include a System Speed Dialing code
only as the first four characters (but nowhere else). Personal Speed Dialing numbers cannot
include Personal Speed Dialing codes. System Speed Dialing numbers cannot include any
Speed Dialing codes.
Virtual Facilities: A Virtual Facility code may be used within Personal or System Speed
Dialing numbers. When used, it must appear at the beginning of the stored number (first four
characters).
Administration Requirements
System:
●
Assign System Speed Dialing Numbers.
Voice Terminal Port:
●
Allow/Deny Personal Speed Dialing on a per station basis.

FEATURES AND SERVICES
STARLAN NETWORK Access
Description
The AT&T STARLAN NETWORK (STARLAN NETWORK) Access feature provides
connectivity between System 25 and a colocated STARLAN NETWORK. This connectivity is
provided by a combination of hardware and software elements. The STARLAN NETWORK
must use Release 2 software; System 25 is not compatible with Release 3 STARLAN
NETWORK software.
The STARLAN INTERFACE circuit pack (ZTN84) is the principal hardware element
connecting System 25 and the STARLAN NETWORK. One or more of these circuit packs
may be mounted in the System 25 cabinet(s). The STARLAN circuit pack (CP) communicates
with System 25 call processing over System 25’s Time Division Multiplex (TDM) bus. To
System 25, this circuit pack functions like a 4-port Data Line circuit pack (DLC). To the
STARLAN NETWORK, the STARLAN CP appears as a STARLAN NETWORK workstation.
Communication between STARLAN NETWORK equipment (workstations, servers, hosts) and
data terminals, PC6300s, and host computers connected to System 25 is provided by
firmware on the STARLAN CP and communications program(s) on the PCs and hosts. Two
communications programs are available to users:
●
System 25 STARLAN NETWORK ACCESS (ACCESS)
ACCESS allows MS-DOS personal computers (PCs) connected (via the PC’s serial
port) to System 25 to communicate with DOS Servers on the STARLAN NETWORK
and to function as client workstations. The interface from the System 25 to the
STARLAN NETWORK is the STARLAN CP operating in bridge mode. Bridge mode
provides a transparent connection between the PC and the STARLAN NETWORK.
Personal computer users may access the STARLAN NETWORK just as though they
were connected to the STARLAN NETWORK with a Network Access Unit (NAU),
although at lower speed. (The NAU is a CP mounted in STARLAN NETWORK
workstations that permits access to other workstations and/or servers in the
network.) Data transmission through the STARLAN CP is limited to a maximum of
9,600 bps. This is much less than the 1 million bps transmission rate between
workstations/servers on a STARLAN NETWORK.
Applications that require frequent and lengthy transfers of data over the Local Area
Network (LAN) will appear slow. Applications should be designed/configured to run
the executable program locally (on the PC) and to access data from the file server on
the LAN. ACCESS is recommended primarily for shared file and printer access.
Applications should be copied to the user’s (local) disk before they are run.
This program also permits STARLAN NETWORK access for remote PCs if the
System 25 is equipped with a Pooled Modem CP (TN758) or external modem pool.
Remote PCs can dial the STARLAN CP through a modem using either the Direct
Group Calling (DGC) feature or Direct Inward Dialing (DID) trunks to obtain a
connection through System 25 to the STARLAN NETWORK.
2-294
STARLAN NETWORK Access
ACCESS must be used in conjunction with the AT&T STARLAN NETWORK Server
software (Version 2.0 or later). Installation software furnished with ACCESS requires
the STARLAN NETWORK client installation diskette in order to install ACCESS.
●
Communications Access Manager (CAM)
CAM is an MS-DOS applications program that provides an enhanced calling interface
and terminal emulation for PCs connected to System 25 or a STARLAN NETWORK.
This connection must be through a DLC or a STARLAN NETWORK that is, in turn,
connected to System 25 by a STARLAN CP. Refer to the Communications Access
Manager (CAM) Program feature description for a more detailed description of the
program.
STARLAN INTERFACE Circuit Pack
The STARLAN INTERFACE CP (ZTN84) requires a single modular connection to the
STARLAN NETWORK (see Figure 2-45). It provides an interface between System 25’s Time
Division Multiplex (TDM) bus and STARLAN NETWORK’s packet switched network. The
STARLAN CP provides four full-duplex data connections at speeds up to 9,600 bits per
second.
The STARLAN CP operates in two modes: Gateway Mode and Bridge Mode. Gateway mode
supports connections from System 25 data terminals to STARLAN NETWORK UNIX® system
hosts, or from STARLAN NETWORK UNIX system hosts or client workstations to System 25
hosts or modem pools. In Bridge Mode, the STARLAN CP passes the STARLAN
NETWORK’s Universal Receiver Protocol (URP) through System 25 to a local or remote PC.
This is referred to as Bridge Mode and provides a through connection between PCs running
ACCESS and a STARLAN NETWORK. The proper mode (Bridge or Gateway) is autoselected by the system.
The STARLAN NETWORK View of System 25
From the STARLAN NETWORK, the STARLAN CP functions like a STARLAN NETWORK
workstation equipped with a Network Access Unit (NAU). The NAU enables STARLAN
NETWORK workstations and servers to access and exchange data over the network. Plug
number 1 of the STARLAN CP octopus cable should be connected to an “IN” jack on the
Network Extension Unit (NEU) (see Figures 2-46 and 2-47).
Calls from STARLAN NETWORK to System 25
A STARLAN NETWORK workstation accesses a host computer connected to System 25
(either a local host or a remote host that can be reached using the Modem Pooling feature).
1.
The STARLAN NETWORK workstation loads CLIENT and NAUCOM and then CAM
software (discussed in the Communications Access Manager Program feature
description) and selects a directory entry for the host.
2.
CAM communicates with the STARLAN CP to place the call.
2-295
FEATURES AND SERVICES
3.
After a connection message is received, CAM automatically switches to terminal
emulation (data) mode.
4.
The user may now log into and converse with the remote host
5. To disconnect, the user selects the CAM disconnect command
Figure 2-45.
STARLAN NETWORK and System 25 Configuration
The System 25 View of a STARLAN NETWORK
From System 25, the STARLAN CP looks and functions like a TN726 DLC (with only four
ports). The STARLAN CP differs from the DLC in that, when it is dialed, the STARLAN CP
auto-answers the call and provides a second dialing prompt for completing the call to a
STARLAN NETWORK address. Depending on user’s data terminal type, the STARLAN C P
automatically selects the operating mode and enables the user to access and exchange data
over the network as described below.
Procedures for setting up connections (calls) between STARLAN NETWORK devices and
devices connected to System 25 vary, depending on both calling and called device.
Generally, a two-stage dialing procedure is used. The scenarios described below cover most
situations.
2-296
STARLAN NETWORK Access
Calls from System 25 to the STARLAN NETWORK
A.
An MS-DOS PC connected to System 25 uses the STARLAN NETWORK ACCESS
software to run STARLAN NETWORK applications.
The PC may be connected either to a System 25 DLC port or to an analog station or
trunk port. (The latter arrangement uses System 25’s Modem Pooling feature.)
A typical call is as follows:
1.
The PC user loads ACCESS and is automatically connected to the STARLAN
NETWORK. (The STARLAN CP phone number may be entered when
ACCESS is installed.)
2.
The PC user may now access the STARLAN NETWORK just as if he/she
were a client connected to the STARLAN NETWORK through an NAU.
Note:
B.
Applications that are to be run frequently or are large (>10K
bytes) should be copied to the user’s disk before they are
run.
A Data terminal user accesses a UNIX system host on the STARLAN NETWORK.
When the user dials the STARLAN CP, the CP answers in Gateway Mode and
presents the user with a “STARLAN Address” prompt.
A typical call is as follows:
1.
The user dials the STARLAN CP.
2. The STARLAN CP provides the address prompt. The user enters the logical
name of the STARLAN NETWORK host (for example, 3B2).
3.
The user is connected to the UNIX system host and receives the host login
prompt.
Flow Control
Software flow control (XON/XOFF) may be enabled or disabled by System 25 data endpoints.
After the “STARLAN Address” prompt is returned to the user, a CONTROL-X may be
entered instead of a logical name. The user will be prompted further to enable or disable
flow control. After that, the user is again prompted for a STARLAN address. This option
also works for calls from the STARLAN NETWORK to System 25.
Data Call Disconnect
Data calls may be disconnected at either endpoint. Connections are dropped through the
normal disconnect procedures of each network. If a failure in the established connection
occurs, call disconnections are initiated from both sides.
2-297
FEATURES AND SERVICES
Third-Party Call Setup
A data terminal (on System 25) or workstation (on the STARLAN NETWORK) can set up a
call between two other stations (voice or data) using the Third-Party Call Setup feature.
Since voice port/data port associations are not meaningful for STARLAN CP ports,
STARLAN NETWORK workstations must always specify the Personal Dial Code of the
source voice terminal or the Data Dial Code of the source data terminal. Note that this
feature can only be administered for the STARLAN CP ports as a group, and not for
individual STARLAN NETWORK workstations.
When placing voice calls using CAM, Third-Party Call Setup is used automatically.
Wiring
The STARLAN NETWORK wiring plan is based on standard 4-pair building wiring. The
STARLAN NETWORK uses two pairs of the 4-pair cable, allowing the remaining two pairs to
be used for voice service. STARLAN NETWORK data is transmitted over pairs two and
three. Figures 2-46 and 2-47 provide typical connection information.
A Y-adapter may be used to combine/split the pairs at the System 25 cross-connect field.
STARLAN NETWORK NAUs provide an RJ11 phone jack that terminates pair 1. Single line
sets may be plugged directly into this jack (Figure 2-46). MERLIN Communications System
sets require an ATL adapter and local power (Figure 2-47).
ATL Adapters
The ATL adapter (KS23475) is a connection block that provides: 48V dc power from T1 (via
modular cords C4 and C1) to the ATL phone, data connections from the STARLAN
workstation, and phone connections from the ATL phone (via modular cord C1) over a
shared common cable (C3) to System 25. The phone and data connections are on separate
wire pairs that are split-out at the SIP “Y” adapter (A1). Phone wiring is cabled to the ATL
Line CP (ZTN79) by octopus cable C2, and data wiring is cabled to the NEU by modular cord
C1.
Administration Requirements
The STARLAN CP is administered as a type of data port. Some items administered on one
port are automatically administered for all four ports on the CP, others are individually
administrable.
Individually Administrable (default):
●
DDC of port

FEATURES AND SERVICES
Station Hunting
Description
This feature provides linear, circular, or combinational hunting sequences for calls to busy
single-line voice terminals and data terminals.
Calls to a busy terminal may hunt to (only) one other terminal; however, up to five terminals
may hunt to the same terminal.
Although hunting is not available to or from multiline terminals, single-line terminals may have
their calls covered by multiline terminals.
Station Hunting takes precedence over Coverage. Calls to a single-line voice terminal that is
assigned both Station Hunting and Coverage will first hunt. If no hunted-to station is
available, the call goes to coverage.
The following are examples of the three types of hunting allowed:
●
Linear Hunting Example:
Terminals x, y, and z are arranged for linear hunting as follows: (1) Terminal x hunts
to Terminal y; (2) Terminal y hunts to Terminal z, and (3) Terminal z does not hunt.
An incoming call to a busy terminal in the chain will hunt in one direction only.
Hunting will be toward the terminal that does not hunt.
●
Circular Hunting Example:
Terminals x, y, and z are arranged for circular hunting as follows: (1) Terminal x
hunts to Terminal y, (2) Terminal y hunts to Terminal z, and (3) Terminal z hunts to
Terminal x.
An incoming call to a busy terminal in the chain hunts in one direction until it finds an
idle terminal and then rings at that terminal. Any coverage options assigned to that
terminal will then be invoked. If the hunt finds all terminals busy, it will stop at the
called terminal. Any coverage options assigned to the called terminal will then be
invoked.
●
Combinational Hunting Example:
Terminals w, x, and y all hunt to Terminal z.
An incoming call to a busy w, x, or y Terminal will ring at Terminal z, and any
coverage options assigned Terminal z will be invoked. If Terminal z is busy, the call
remains at the called terminal. Any coverage options assigned the called terminal will
then be invoked.
2-302
Station Hunting
Considerations
Station Hunting provides several flexible alternatives to ensure that calls do not go
unanswered. Note that only calls to busy terminals will hunt; once a call begins ringing at a
terminal it will remain there unless picked up or covered.
Interactions
The following features interact with Station Hunting.
Attendant Camp-On: When the attendant extends a call to a busy terminal in a hunt group,
the call hunts for an idle terminal. If none is found, the call Camps-On to the called terminal.
Callback Queuing: If all stations of a hunt group are busy, the call queues only for the dialed
station in the group.
Call Waiting: If all members of a hunt group are busy and the originally-dialed station has
Call Waiting, the caller hears special ringback until the station becomes available to answer
the call.
Coverage: Station Hunting initially overrides all coverage options. When a call to a voice
terminal that has Coverage exhausts the terminal hunting possibilities, coverage is invoked.
Following/Forwarding: Calls signed in at, or forwarded to, a station in a hunt group will hunt
and ring an idle station if the home station is busy. If all members of the group are busy and
the away, or forwarded-to, station has Call Waiting, the caller hears special ringback until the
away station becomes available to answer the call.
A call to a forwarding station in a hunt group will first ring at the away, or forwarded-to,
station. After an administered number of rings, the call returns to the hunt group; if all
members are busy, the call continues to ring at the away station until a hunt group member
becomes available.
Administration Requirements
Voice or Data Terminal Port:
●
Assign PDC/DDC of terminal to hunt to next.
2-303
FEATURES AND SERVICES
Station Message Detail Recording (SMDR)
Description
This feature provides detailed call information records on all incoming and outgoing trunk
calls and sends this information to an (optional) output device. Data on inside calls is not
collected.
The call records can be used to compute costs, allocate charges, and analyze calling
patterns. The output device can be any serial RS-232 compatible DTE device capable of
receiving the data (must supply DTR on pin 20) and either printing the call records or storing
and analyzing them. (80 character ASCII records are sent to the output device.)
The SMDR RS-232 port interface is provided by a DUART driver (68681). It is a one-way
port transmitting data to the output device. No characters are read by the port interface, and
no flow control mechanisms are provided. The standard data transmit rate is 1200 bps.
(Also operates at 300 bps.)
Call Records
The call records provide detailed information concerning both incoming and outgoing calls.
Call detail records are generated during call processing and are sent to the SMDR output
device in ASCII format. SMDR records are provided for:
●
Voice Records: The system prints call records for incoming calls and for outgoing
calls that exceed a specified duration. For special types of calls such as conference
or transferred calls, one call record is reported for each trunk seized, regardless of
the number of parties connected to the call. The call’s duration is from the time the
last digit was dialed until the last person hangs up. No indication is provided that
trunks have been bridged together.
●
Data Records: The system prints call records for incoming and outgoing (external)
data calls. Calls are considered data calls if they involve a data extension.
The following list describes the SMDR data collected for each call and the number of
characters in each field. All information is right justified in its field, unless otherwise
indicated. The record is provided in a standard 80-column format. The headings for each
record item are noted in bold type. These headings are printed across the top of each page.
Page advance is determined by counting lines based on a fixed page length. Each record is
followed by a carriage return and a line feed.
The system can provide for the storage of up to 100 SMDR records. If more than 100
records are received while the printer is disconnected, a message “Calls Lost Due To Call
Record Overflow” is provided when a printer is re-attached.
2-304
Station Message Detail Recording (SMDR)
The SMDR call detail (Figure 2-48) contains the following information for each call record:
●
TYPE (Column 1)
All voice calls are labeled C, data calls are labeled D. (“TYPE” is not printed as a column
heading)
●
Blank (Column 2)
●
DATE (Columns 3-10)
The date the call is originated.
●
Blank (Column 11)
●
TIME (Columns 12-16)
The time the trunk is seized is listed using a 24-hour clock. For example, 2:01 PM is listed
as 14:01. Seconds are truncated.
●
Blank (Column 17)
●
CALLED NUMBER (Columns 18-35)
For outgoing calls, up to 15 digits may be recorded, excluding the ARS or facility access
code but including the 0 or 1 prefix (to identify local and toll calls) and 950-10xx and 10xxx
interconnect access codes. Space is allotted for three dashes, one between the fourth and
fifth digits from the right, one between the seventh and eight digits from the right, and the
other between the tenth and eleventh digits from the right. Numbers longer than 15 digits
will be truncated. For Repertory Dialing and Speed Dialing numbers, the facility will be
extracted from the stored number and reported under the FAC heading; the number
remaining after the facility is extracted will be reported as the called number.
For a Remote Access call through the System 25 to an outside number, this field contains
the outside number dialed by the remote caller.
An incoming call is identified by the word IN.
●
Error Character - Question Mark or Blank (Column 36). Indicates number dialed exceeded
15 digits.
●
Blank (Column 37)
●
DUR (Columns 38-45 - Duration)
For incoming calls, this provides the time between trunk seizure and disconnect, rounded to
the nearest second. For outgoing calls, it provides the time between the last digit dialed
until the last station on the call hangs up, less an estimated time for call setup (15
seconds), rounded to the nearest second. A call transferred between a number of voice
terminals will reflect the total call duration. The maximum time that can be reported is 95
hours, 59 minutes, and 59 seconds.

Features and Services
●
Blank (Column 46)
●
FAC (Columns 47-51 - Facility)
Indicates the facility used to place the call. For outgoing calls including Speed Dialing
numbers, the pooled facility selected by ARS or the facility access code that was dialed (or
that corresponds to the facility button that was pressed) is identified. For Remote Access
calls through the System 25 to outside numbers, this field contains the number of the
outgoing trunk or trunk pool.
For incoming calls, Personal Line calls, and Remote Access calls to inside numbers, the
trunk number is identified.
If a virtual facility was used to complete the call, the applicable Virtual Facility Code (#190#199) is identified in this field.
●
Blank (Column 52)
●
STN (Column 53-56)
Identifies the voice or data terminal responsible for the call. If an account code is entered,
the voice terminal where the code is entered is reported. If no account code is entered, the
terminal originating an outgoing call is identified, or the last terminal connected to an
incoming call is identified.
For an incoming call to a DGC group that is connected to an announcement but is never
answered, 0 will be recorded in the STN field. If the call is answered by a station after
receiving announcement, the station answering the call will be recorded.
If an outgoing call is originated by a tandem tie trunk, the tandem trunk’s Facility Access
Code (FAC) is recorded in this field. If no FAC exists for this trunk, then the 4-digit trunk
number (9xxx) will appear.
If an outgoing call is originated by a DID trunk, the DID’s 4-digit number is recorded in this
field.
For a Remote Access call to an inside number, the called party’s number is shown; if the
call timed out to the attendant, the attendant’s number is shown. If the remote caller calls
an outside number, the number of the incoming trunk is presented in this field.
●
Blank (Columns 57, 58)
●
ACCOUNT (Columns 59-73)
Lists the Account Code associated with the call, if one was entered. On conference and
transferred calls, the first account code entered is recorded and subsequent account code
entries are ignored.
For Remote Access calls, the barrier code number (not the code itself) is shown. (The
barrier code number is replaced by error code for failed remote access calls.)

Station Message Detail Recording (SMDR)
●
Blank (Column 74)
●
PDC (Columns 75-78)
Identifies the user responsible for outgoing calls. The user is identified by the call
accountability login (##PDC) entered at the originating voice terminal. If no call
accountability is entered, the PDC field is blank.
Figure 2-49 and Figure 2-50 summarize the Call Record and Call Record Header formats.
Considerations
SMDR provides detailed call information on incoming and outgoing calls. This information can be
used to facilitate cost allocation, traffic analysis, and detection of unauthorized calls,
Interactions
The following features interact with Station Message Detail Recording.
Account Code Entry: Allows users to have an account code or project number associated with
each call record.
Bridging of System Access Button: When an outside call is answered or originated at a Bridged
Access (BA) button, the SMDR record for this call will report the bridging station’s PDC number
under the STN column and the principal station’s PDC number under the PDC column. If the Call
Accountability feature is used when originating a call at a BA button, the PDC column will contain
the accountable (entered) PDC number in place of the principal’s PDC.
If two bridged stations attempt to originate a call at the same time, and if the call is completed, the
PDC number of the station that dialed the first digit is placed in the SMDR records under the STN
column.
Direct Group Calling (DGC): For an incoming call to a DGC group that is connected to an
announcement and never answered, the PDC of the Delay Announcement machine will be reported
in the “STN” field of the call record. If the call is answered by a station after receiving the
announcement, that station will be listed in the “STN” field.
Forwarding: When a call is successfully forwarded to an outside number, the call record will
contain the forwarding station and forwarded-to station numbers.
When a Remote Access caller activates Forwarding at a System 25 station, the SMDR call record
shows the incoming trunk number in the FAC field, the PDC of the forwarding station in the STN
field, and the barrier code number in the ACCOUNT field.
Modem Pooling: SMDR records do not reflect modem pool resource usage.
November 1995
2-307
Features and Services
Remote Access: Remote Access calls are fully covered in the SMDR call records. Failed remote
calls are shown in account field (see Figure 48).
Tandem Trunking: If an outgoing call is originated by a tandem tie trunk, the tandem trunk’s FAC
is recorded in the STN field. If no FAC exists for this trunk, then the 4-digit trunk number (9xxx) will
appear. No other SMDR fields are affected.
Administration Requirements
System:
●
Send SMDR records to SMDR Port (yes or no; default = yes).
●
Minimum length (seconds) of successfully dialed calls that are reported by SMDR (10-255;
default = 40).
●
Type of SMDR peripheral: CAT or non-CAT (yes = CAT, no = non-CAT).
Hardware Requirements
An AT&T Model 572 printer or any standard RS-232 serial 80-column ASCII printer is required for
printing the SMDR output. The printer must be dedicated to SMDR to ensure that all calls are
recorded. An AT&T Call Accounting System may also be used as the SMDR output device (see
below).
The printer can be directly connected to Port 2 of the ZTN130 CPU/MEM (Call Processing
Unit/Memory) circuit pack or switched access (either on- or off-premises) can be provided.
Connection is the same as described for the SAT.
SMDR port parameters areas follows:
●
No parity; bit is set to zero (mark or space),
●
1 start bit, 1 stop bit, and 7 data bits.
●
Baud rate defaults to 1200 (can be set to 300).
●
DTR (data terminal ready) required from printer.
●
RTS (ready to send) and CTS (clear to send) not required.
●
No flow control.
Detailed connection information is provided in Figures 2-51 through 2-55.
Maximum cabling distances are provided in Section 5, “Technical Specifications.”

Station-to-Station Message Waiting
Station-to-Station Message Waiting
Description
This feature allows pairs of multiline voice terminal users to signal each other with Message
Waiting (MSG WAIT) buttons and associated green status LEDs at each terminal. When
either user presses the MSG WAIT button, the LEDs light at both stations. This arrangement
enables one user to inform the other user that a message is waiting; it can also be adapted
to other two-way signaling purposes such as “come to my office.”
After the MSG WAIT LEDs have been turned on, they can be turned off by operation of the
button at either terminal. The receiver of a station-to-station message should normally turn
off the LEDs as soon as the message is understood so that the link is restored to an idle
condition and is ready for use again.
No talking path or audible alerting is associated with this feature.
Considerations
This feature is functionally similar to, but separate from, the Coverage Message Waiting and
Attendant Message Waiting features.
A station can be a member of more than one Station-to-Station Message Waiting pair, but
must have a separate button for each pair.
This feature is not associated with the built-in MESSAGE (or MSG) indicators of many
System 25 voice terminals. It lights only the LEDs of the feature buttons assigned to
Station-to-Station Message Waiting.
Administration Requirements
Voice Terminal Port:
●
For each pair of stations that are to share this feature, assign a MSG WAIT button
with associated status LED at each station.
Note:
MSG WAIT buttons always assigned to pairs of stations for use only
between the two stations. If station A needs to signal stations B and
C, station A must have a separate MSG WAIT button for each.
2-317
FEATURES AND SERVICES
System Administration
Description
The software that controls System 25 operation consists of tables located in system memory.
These tables contain data associated with:
●
Trunk, Station, and Auxiliary Equipment Ports
●
System Parameters
●
Direct Group Calling Groups
●
Toll Calls Allowed Lists
●
Peripheral Equipment Data Communications Parameters
●
Automatic Route Selection.
Collectively, these software tables are referred to as translations. The system comes
equipped with default translations data; when full-default cold started, the default translations
are copied into translation memory.
System Administration is the process of managing the translations by making changes to
modify system operation to meet customer requirements.
The System 25 Implementation Manual describes how a system can be configured to meet
specific customer needs. Information about a desired configuration is recorded on a set of
forms that are used when entering the initial system translations (i.e., initializing the system).
These forms are filed in the Administration Records Binder and provide the basis for ongoing record keeping. Modification of initial assignments can be made to meet changing
customer needs.
The system provides an EIA RS-232 interface to a System Administration Terminal (SAT), the
primary means of entering and modifying translations.
System 25 administration consists of:
●
Centralized Administration: Configuration of the system and assignment of featurerelated parameters, including assignment of feature buttons on voice terminals.
Centralized Administration is performed via the SAT.
●
Advanced Administration: The Advanced Administration Software (AAS) package is
a major improvement in system management. It provides the System Administrator a
user-friendly, powerful tool for accurately and quickly making changes in voice/data
terminal assignments, coverage, access codes, and other system functions such as
ARS.
Two sets of software are available for Advanced Administration. One set operates
on a PC6300 (with 640K RAM) and provides an alternative to use of the SAT input
terminal. The other runs on the Master Controller (UNIX PC) as part of the
“Integrated Solution.”
2-318
System Administration
A main menu gives the user ready access for these tasks:
— Adding/changing/removing voice station assignments
— Adding/removing users to and from coverage groups
— Saving translations.
A significant advantage of the AAS package is that it can be used either at the same
location or can be used remotely via a dial-up connection.
Considerations
The default system administration password (systemx5) can be changed through an
administration item. Note, however, that a system warm start or cold start will reset the
password to this default.
Hardware Requirements
The System Administration Terminal (SAT) is a Model 703 Data Terminal (see Figure 2-56). It
is a general purpose asynchronous full duplex printing data terminal with a RS-232 interface
for data entry and retrieval. It provides a paper record of all transactions. When located
within 50 feet of the system cabinets, it can be directly connected to channel 1 on the
ZTN130 CPU/MEM (Call Processing Unit/Memory) CP. Either on-premises or off-premises
access to the administration port is supported. The terminal operates at a speed of 1200
bps (1200 baud).
Administration port parameters are as follows:
●
No parity; bit is set to zero.
●
1 start bit, 1 stop bit, and 7 data bits.
●
Autobaud is invoked when carriage return is pressed (300 or 1200).
●
DTR (data terminal ready) required from terminal.
●
RTS (ready to send) and CTS (clear to send) not required.
●
No flow control.
The Model 703 requires 115V ac 60-hertz commercial power from a 3-wire grounded outlet.
The terminal should be located on a flat surface such as a desk or table top. It is
approximately 12 inches wide, 9 inches long, and 3 inches high.
2-319
FEATURES AND SERVICES
The Model 703 keyboard generates ASCII codes. The terminal produces two audible tones
to indicate the completion of activities.
●
Short Tone—A tone of less than one half-second indicates the normal termination of
an operation
●
L o n g T o n e — A one-second tone indicates that an error or an abnormal operating
condition has been detected.
The Model 703 SAT Supplement contains a complete set of operating instructions for the
Model 703 Data Terminal. This document may be of use to customers who want to use the
terminal for other purposes in addition to system administration. All the information needed
to use the terminal as a SAT is included in the R3 Administration Manual.
The SAT can be connected to the system cabinets in several different ways:
●
A direct connection within 50 feet when sharing the same AC outlet as the system
cabinets
●
A direct on-premises connection at a distance greater than 50 feet from the system
cabinets
●
A direct off-premises connection via the Central Office (OPS or CO trunk)
●
An on-premises switched connection
●
An off-premises switched connection.
Maximum cabling distances from the system cabinets are provided in Section 5, “Technical
Specifications.”
Installation details are provided in the System 25 Installation and Maintenance Manual.
The SAT may also be provided by the customer. It must be a RS-232 compatible terminal
that has a 25-pin connector providing signal on DTR (pin 20). In addition, it should have the
following characteristics:
Display: The minimum display size is 16 lines by 80 columns. The port provides both
carriage return and line feed characters to position the cursor at the start of the next line.
Destructive scrolling is also expected (new lines added at the bottom of the screen and topmost lines disappear). Full duplex operation is required. Alphabetic ASCII characters in both
upper-case and lower-case will be sent to the SAT, along with ASCII numerals and some
basic ASCII symbols. The device used must be capable of displaying ASCII alphabetic
characters when either upper-case or lower-case characters are received. However, upperto-lower case mapping (or vice-versa) for display is acceptable since no meaning is
associated with case.
Keyboard: The administration port requires ASCII alphanumeric characters as well as some
symbol characters. If the keyboard generates only upper-case or only lower-case alphabetic
characters the administration port will respond appropriately, since upper and lower case
input is considered identical. The SAT should be capable of sending the following ASCII
Characters.

FEATURES AND SERVICES
System Maintenance
Description
The primary objective of System 25 maintenance is to detect, report, and clear troubles as
quickly as possible and with minimum disruption to normal service. This goal is supported
by periodic automatic diagnostic tests and fault detection hardware. System design allows
most troubles to be resolved to the circuit pack level.
System 25 hardware and software are organized as independent units or maintenance
objects. Each maintenance object is normally a separately replaceable unit. These units
include circuit packs, power units, fans, voice and data terminals, cross-connect hardware,
auxiliary, and peripheral equipment.
There are two general categories of system errors: system-detected errors and userreported problems. The system can automatically detect and log errors without human
intervention. For system-detected errors, an Alarm LED on the Attendant Console is lighted
if the error qualifies as a Permanent System Alarm (a serious error). Most alarms can be
verified by checking the LEDs located on the front edge of the system circuit packs. (At least
one Red LED will be on.) User-reported problems are usually detected at individual voice
and data terminals and are often related to alarmed conditions.
Alarms may be retired automatically and can also be cleared manually. After a trouble has
been cleared, the system retests the previously faulty area. If the fault is no longer present,
the error message (and alarm, if applicable) is cleared. It is not necessary for maintenance
personnel to retire alarms after a problem has been fixed. However, they may clear error
messages and alarms by entering the proper commands at the System Administration
Terminal.
System Errors And Alarms
If a maintenance object fails periodic tests, the system automatically generates an error
record that is placed in one of three software tables (error logs). The failure may be
classified as a Permanent System Alarm or as an unverified failure that never becomes a
Permanent System Alarm. A Permanent System Alarm causes the Alarm LED on the
Attendant Console to light. This alarm indication is a signal to the attendant to contact
maintenance personnel.
System alarms are classified as:
●
Permanent System Alarms: Failures that cause degradation of service and require
Immediate attention. These alarms cause the Alarm LED on the Attendant Console
to light and an alarm record to be stored in the Permanent System Alarm error log.
●
Transient System Errors: Potential failures that may cause degradation of service.
These do not light the Alarm LED on the Attendant Console. These are errors that
have not been verified by system self-tests, and are not yet serious enough to be
classified as Permanent System Alarms.
2-328
System Maintenance
If an error that begins as a Transient System Error is verified or reaches a threshold
level of severity, it is reclassified as a Permanent System Alarm.
Transient system errors are stored in the Transient System Error log. The system
can store a combined total of 40 Permanent System Alarms and Transient System
Errors in the error tables.
●
Most Recent System Errors: The ten Most Recent System Errors are recorded by
the system, regardless of their level of severity. These are stored in the Most Recent
System Errors log.
Error Logs
The three error logs can be displayed via the System Administration Terminal. The data in
the log is useful in diagnosing and analyzing troubles, particularly when the problem has not
yet caused an alarm or when alarms cannot be retired by replacement of maintenance
objects.
The error log is historical in nature. It lists faults that have not been resolved as well as past
alarms, and provides a profile of system maintenance.
Automatic Maintenance Tests
There are two kinds of maintenance testing initiated (only) by the system:
●
Periodic
●
Demand
Periodic tests are run by the system at fixed intervals. The tests do not affect service.
Demand tests are run by the system when it detects a condition requiring a need for testing.
Demand tests are only performed when errors are detected. Maintenance personnel cannot
initiate these tests.
For additional information, see AT&T System 25 Installation and Maintenance Manual.

FEATURES AND SERVICES
Tandem Trunking
Description
Tandem trunking provides an enhanced networking capability for System 25. With this
feature, tie trunks can be used to call through System 25 to reach another switching system
(CO or PBX). Calls may be completed over on-network or off-network facilities.
To be treated as tandem trunks, tie trunks must be assigned trunk numbers beginning with
the digit 9. Incoming calls on these trunks may route out of System 25 over ground start,
loop start, or tie trunks. Tandem trunks can gain access to outgoing facilities either indirectly
(by the ARS feature) or directly (by dial access).
System 25’s Tandem Trunking feature does not support traveling class marks or centralized
attendant service. Users cannot activate most System 25 features or services at either the
tandem or far-end terminating switch.
Considerations
The use of tandem trunking with tie trunks provides a cost-effective alternative to toll calling
between branches.
Interactions
The following features interact with Tandem Trunking.
Automatic Route Selection: Tandem trunk calls that route outbound via ARS receive the
same treatment as calls originated by a System 25 station, with one exception. If all facilities
in a routing pattern are busy, call queuing is not provided. In this case, busy tone is returned
to the calling party.
The second digit of the trunk number is used to specify the trunk’s “station” Facility
Restriction Level (FRL) for use with ARS. FRLs may be specified as follows:
2-330
Trunk Number
Range
Second
Digit
Station
FRL
9000-9199
9200-9399
9400-9599
9600-9999
0 or 1
2 or 3
4 or 5
6, 7, 8,
or 9
0
1
2
3
Tandem Trunking
To gain access to an ARS routing facility, the tandem trunk’s “station” FRL must be equal to
or greater than the route’s FRL. Thus, a tandem trunk with a FRL of 0 has the least ARS
privileges, while a FRL of 3 provides the most privileges. If the restriction level of the
tandem trunk is less than all route FRLs, reorder tone is returned to the calling party.
Dial Access: No toll restriction is provided for tandem trunk calls. However, access to
outgoing facilities can be controlled via the “allow dial access” option in the outgoing trunk’s
administration. Tandem Trunk calls receive the following treatment when attempting dial
access of System 25 facilities:
●
If the requested trunk pool is dial accessible, an outgoing trunk is selected and the
call proceeds normally.
●
If the requested trunk pool is not dial accessible, reorder tone is returned to the
calling party.
Any attempt to dial an outgoing trunk pool by non-tandem tie trunks (that is, tie trunks whose
trunk number does not begin with 9) results in reorder tone being returned to the calling
party.
Paging System Access: Tandem trunks can access paging ports (auxiliary or CO trunk
interface), as long as the paging ports are dial-accessible.
Station Message Detail Recording (SMDR): After accessing an outgoing facility, the tandem
trunk’s Facility Access Code (FAC) will be recorded in the STN field on the call’s SMDR
record. If the tandem trunk has no FAC, then the 4-digit trunk number (9xxx) will be
recorded in the STN field. All other SMDR fields are unaffected.
Administration Requirements
Except for the need to specify the trunk number as described above, administration of
tandem trunks is the same as for any other tie trunk.
Hardware Requirements
Only dial-in tie trunks (types 1003-1008) may be used for tandem trunking.
2-331
FEATURES AND SERVICES
Test
Description
This feature provides users of the 7300H series voice terminals the ability to test their
terminals.
Placing the Test/Program (T/P) switch in the “T” position causes all red and green LEDs to
light alternately and the tone ringer to sound. If the terminal has a display module, the
following responses also occur:
●
The display shows 16 darkened squares.
●
After the Test switch is returned to its normal position, the Local Display alarm clock
produces 3 short beeps.
Considerations
The Test feature assures users that all visible indicators (LEDs and display screen) and
audible signaling devices (tone ringer, built-in speaker, and timer alarm) of their terminals are
working properly.
The Test switch on some voice terminals is spring loaded; upon release, the switch returns
to a normal on-line position. On other terminals, the switch must be manually returned to the
center (normal on-line) position.
2-332
Third-Party Call Setup
Third-Party Call Setup
Description
The Third-Party Call Setup feature allows a data terminal (the third party) to set up, via
Command Mode, a call between an on-premises voice or data terminal (the source) and
another voice or data terminal (the destination; can be on- or off-premises). Once the call
has been set up, the third-party drops off and is not included in the call.
Each third-party data terminal may be administered to have a particular source terminal
“associated” with it. This association allows an abbreviated form of dialing when activating
the Third-Party Call Setup feature. Through further administration, the third-party data
terminal may be given permission to set up calls for any source terminal, for only the
associated source terminal, or for no source terminal (feature disabled).
When the user successfully activates Third-Party Call Setup and has dialed all digits
correctly, the following occurs, depending on the source terminal type:
●
Voice Terminal (source)
The source voice terminal (if not busy) receives priority ringing. A priority ringing
cycle consists of two short bursts followed by one long burst. The source terminal’s
handset must be picked up within three ringing cycles; the destination terminal will
then be called. Regardless of the call outcome, the third-party data terminal displays
the message CONFIRMED and DISCONNECTED immediately after calling the
destination terminal.
If the source terminal’s handset is not picked up within three priority ringing cycles,
the third-party data terminal displays the messages N O A N S W E R a n d
DISCONNECTED. If the source phone is busy, the third-party data terminal displays
BUSY and DISCONNECTED.
A call to a source terminal that has the Hands-Free Answer on Intercom (HFAI)
feature activated results in the automatic answering of the source end, and the
destination terminal will be called. The third-party data terminal displays CONFIRMED
and DISCONNECTED.
●
Data Terminal (source)
If the source terminal is a data terminal whose speed is set to the highest optioned
speed of the data port, the message REMOTE SETUP is displayed at the source
terminal and the CONFIRMED/DISCONNECTED message is displayed at the thirdparty data terminal. The destination terminal will then be called automatically from
the source terminal. If the source terminal and destination terminal are compatible, a
data connection is established.
Since the System 25 does not provide call progress tone detection for an off-premises call
(can’t detect second dial tone, for example), pause characters should be inserted at
appropriate places in the dialed digit string. In addition, Third-Party Call Setup calls are
subject to the administered restrictions assigned to the source voice or data port. For
2-333
FEATURES AND SERVICES
example, if the source terminal is restricted to on-premises calls only, a call to an offpremises destination terminal will be blocked.
Setting Up A Third-Party Call
To set up a call from the third-party data terminal, the user selects <Voice call> from the
entry-level Command Mode menu (see Figure 2-58). The user then enters the characters as
required to call the destination terminal. Calls may be completed as follows.
Note:
If a character is entered incorrectly, the ASCII character backspace (BS or
CTRL-H keys) or underscore (_) may be used to cancel a previously entered
character.
Calling a Destination Terminal (source terminal is NOT associated with the third-party data
terminal)
After the user has selected <Voice call> from the Command Mode menu, a DIAL: prompt is
displayed on the third-party data terminal. The user has 15 seconds to begin entering the
digits to be dialed before being disconnected. The format of the digits following the DIAL:
prompt is shown below:
DIAL: {Destination}F{Source}
The Destination number must include all digits required to call the destination terminal and
may contain facility access codes, Speed Dialing codes, and pauses ( ✶ ). An “F” may be
entered immediately following the Destination digits; this character is used to separate the
Destination number from the Source number. The Source number must be a Personal Dial
Code when the source is a voice terminal, or a Data Dial Code when the source is a data
terminal. Floating PDCs are not allowed.
If the user enters the Destination number but not the Source number, the system prompts as
indicated below:
FROM: {Source}
The user must then enter the Source number.
Calling a Destination Terminal (source terminal is associated with the third-party data
terminal)
Following the DIAL: prompt the user enters the Destination number only. (System 25 will
automatically select the associated PDC or DDC as the Source number.)
If the third-party data terminal is permitted to establish calls for any source terminal, the
format {Destination}F{Source} must be used to set up calls for any terminal except the
associated source terminal.
2-334
Third-Party Call Setup
Considerations
With this feature, computer-based telemarketing or other calling applications can set up calls
for the user.
Interactions
The following features interact with Third-Party Call Setup.
Account Code Entry, Forced (FACE): If the source station is FACE-restricted, the third-party
data terminal must prefix the outside destination number with ✶ 0 and an account code.
Coverage: Third-Party Call Setup calls to the source terminal will not be directed to a
coverage station. If the source terminal is not answered before coverage is invoked, the call
is dropped and the NO ANSWER/DISCONNECTED messages are displayed at the third-party
data terminal.
Expert Mode: Refer to the Expert Mode feature description for additional methods in dialing
when using the Third-Party Call Setup feature.
Following/Forwarding: If calls to a source terminal have been redirected to another terminal
(via Following or Forwarding), Third-Party Call Setup calls will be redirected. Note, however.
that the maximum of three ringing cycles (combined cycles at the home and away terminals)
still applies before the system drops the call and displays the NO ANSWER/DISCONNECTED
messages at the third-party data terminal.
Station Message Detailed Recording (SMDR): SMDR records will be generated for ThirdParty Call Setup calls just as if they were placed by the source terminal.
Administration Requirements
●
Data Port:
The user’s data terminal may be administered to have a particular source terminal
associated with it. This allows the abbreviated form of dialing when activating the
Third-Party Call Setup feature.
A source terminal may be associated via administration with several third-party data
terminals. A third-party data terminal, however, may be associated with only one
source terminal (voice or data).
In addition, the third-party data terminal can be administered so that calls may be
established for:
— Any voice or data source terminal.
— One associated source terminal only.
2-335
FEATURES AND SERVICES
—
●
No source terminals (feature disabled; default)
AT&T STARLAN NETWORK Access:
Ports administered on the STARLAN INTERFACE circuit pack may not have a
particular source terminal associated with them. Depending on the administration
parameters enabled, third-party data terminals on the STARLAN INTERFACE circuit
pack may establish calls for:
2-336
—
Any voice or data source terminal
—
No source terminals (feature disabled; default).
Tie Trunks
Tie Trunks
Description
Tie trunks provide private communications links between System 25 and other PBXS
Incoming tie trunk calls may be directed to the attendant, to a voice terminal, or to a data
endpoint. Service may be either automatic, immediate dial, delay dial, or wink start. Dial
pulse or touch-tone signaling is supported on both incoming and outgoing calls (and may be
different for incoming and outgoing calls).
Considerations
Tie Trunks provide for efficient communications between company employees at different
locations. This provides a private network whose control and utilization can be managed.
Tie trunks can be administered for tandem trunking. This arrangement enables users to call
through an intermediate System 25 to a remote System 25 or other PBX. Refer to the
“Tandem Trunking” feature description for more information.
Interactions
The following features interact with Tie Trunks.
Automatic Route Selection (ARS): Immediate dial tie trunks should not be used in ARS
routing patterns.
Callback Queuing: Tie Trunk groups can be administered for Callback Queueing. If a user
dials a Tie Trunk number and all trunks in the group are busy, the user must either wait for
timeout or dial # to get queuing tone (if automatic queuing is administered) or reorder tone.
Manual queuing can be activated after reorder tone is heard.
Conference: A tie trunk that is part of a conference counts as one of two allowable outside
parties.
Direct Group Calling: Only automatic incoming tie trunks can be directed to a DGC group.
However, dial-in tie trunks can access DGC groups.
Night Service: Dial-in tie trunks cannot serve as Night Service trunks.
Personal Lines: When a dial-in tie trunk is assigned as a Personal Line and the line is used
for outgoing service at the same time that a call is coming in on the line, the terminal may be
connected to the incoming call even though the call is intended for another terminal that
shares the line. For this reason, it is recommended that tie trunks not be assigned as
Personal Lines.

FEATURES AND SERVICES
Touch-Tone and Dial Pulse Services
Description
All touch-tone single-line voice terminals and MET sets are equipped with dial pads that
generate Dual Tone Multifrequency (DTMF) signals when a dial button is pressed. Model
500 Series single-line terminals have rotary dials that generate dial pulses corresponding to
the numbers selected. The 7300H series (MERLIN) voice terminals are equipped with touch
dial pads that generate digitally coded signals when a dial button is pressed.
Each trunk may be independently arranged for either touch-tone or dial pulse service.
Touch-Tone Dial Pads
On outgoing calls on trunks requiring touch-tone signals, cut-through-dialing is provided.
Where the trunk requires dial pulse signals, conversion of the touch-tone signals to dial
pulses is provided until an end of dialing signal is detected. Cut-through is then provided,
and all subsequent digits are sent as touch-tone signals. See the “End-to-End Signaling”
feature description for more information.
Rotary Dials
Voice terminals with rotary dials are required for Power Failure Transfer stations when the
system connects to the CO by way of dial pulse trunks. They are not recommended for
other applications.
Touch Dial Pads
For outgoing calls on trunks requiring touch-tone signals, all dialed digits are converted to
touch-tone signals. If the trunk requires dial pulse signals, the dialed digits are converted to
dial pulses until an end of dialing signal is detected. Cut-through is then provided, and all
subsequent digits are converted to touch-tone signals. See the “End-to-End Signaling”
feature description for more information.

Transfer
Transfer
Description
This feature allows a user to move any call from the user’s terminal to another voice
terminal, then disconnect from the call.
A user can transfer calls either with or without announcement. A multiline terminal user
presses TRANSFER; the party is automatically placed on Special Hold (indicated by a
broken-flutter on the status LED of the call appearance button). The system will
automatically select an idle System Access button. The user may dial the desired number or
select another facility button and dial the call. The user then can do one of two things: (1)
hang up or (2) wait until the called party answers, announce the call, and then hang up. The
held call receives Music-on-Hold, if provided and administered, until the transferring station
hangs up, after which it receives ringback until the transferred-to station answers.
Unanswered transfers will receive the coverage treatment of the transferred-to station.
A Personal Line transferred by a multiline voice terminal user will indicate the Special Hold
status at the transferring voice terminal until answered, and may be reentered if the call is
not answered. Reentering the call will automatically terminate the transfer attempt.
Single-line voice terminal users may transfer calls by flashing the switchhook, which puts the
caller on hold, listening for Recall Dial tone, dialing the second party, and going on-hook
either immediately or after announcing the call to the second party. A call may also be
transferred by setting up a conference and then hanging up.
Considerations
Transfer provides a convenient way to redirect a call to another voice terminal. Attendant
assistance is not required and the caller does not have to redial. While it is possible to
transfer a call without announcement, it is recommended that call transfers be announced.
Interactions
The following features interact with Transfer
Account Code Entry, Forced (FACE): Calls can be transferred in both directions between a
FACE-restricted station and a non-FACE station.
Account Code Entry, Optional: A user may transfer a call to another user, then, instead of
hanging up, enter an account code. Subsequent account code entries will be ignored.
Attendant Console: In most cases, the attendant should not use this feature to extend
incoming calls, but should use the Start button or Selector Console instead. The exception
to this rule occurs if a trunk-to-trunk transfer is desired (see below).
2-341
FEATURES AND SERVICES
Bridging of System Access Buttons: A call can be transferred from a bridged call
appearance using the usual transfer operations. When a call is held for transfer by pressing
the TRANSFER button, an idle System Access button or an idle System Access-Originate
Only button, if available, is automatically selected by the system for placing the new call. If
neither of these appearance types is idle, the user can manually select a BA button or any
other call button on which to place the new call.
The transfer operation and status indications of the principal’s SA button (and its
corresponding BA buttons) are similar to Personal Line operation with the following
exceptions: Calls can be from/to an inside station or from/to an outside location, and after
the transfer is completed (transferring station goes on-hook) the call will stay at the
principal’s SA button and its BA buttons only if one or more of these stations is bridged to
the call. Otherwise, the call will be removed. An on-hold bridging station or principal is not
considered to be bridged to the call.
Callback Queuing: Queued calls can be transferred. Single-line sets can transfer queued
calls only before going on-hook. The transferring station must wait for the transferred-to
facility to answer before completing the transfer; the transferred-to facility then receives
queuing tone. Queued calls cannot be transferred to a tone (ringing, busy, etc.).
Calling Restrictions: A non-restricted user (typically the attendant) can transfer a CO trunk
to an outward restricted or toll restricted station, giving the station outward service. The toll
restriction class of the transferring station will apply for calls over a transferred trunk.
Coverage: Coverage treatment of the transferred-to station is provided to transferred calls.
When a covering station transfers a covered call to another station, the call will no longer
appear at the covering or the covered station. Note that if you attempt to transfer a call to a
station that you provide coverage for, and that station does not answer, coverage might not
be invoked. (This is one of the reasons why announced transfer is recommended.)
Display: At a station receiving a transferred call, the transfer descriptor “T” is displayed in
position 1 before the transfer is completed. The transferring party’s number and name are
also shown.
Screen 1
T785 Jones,B
After the transfer is completed, “T” is removed and the display reverts to a standard
incoming call format. Information about the transferred party is displayed.
Forwarding: Calls transferred by TRANSFER button operation to a forwarding station will be
given normal Forwarding treatment.
Hold: An outside call placed on hold during call transfer receives music-on-hold, if available
and administered. A user attempting to return to a held internal call that has been
abandoned will hear nothing. A user attempting to return to a held CO trunk call that has
been abandoned hears CO dial tone or receives CO intercept treatment until the CO
disconnects.

Transfer
Music-On-Hold: An administration item allows Music-On-Hold to be enabled or disabled for
“Special Hold.”
Park: Single line voice terminals cannot transfer parked calls.
Pickup: A transferred call maybe answered via the Pickup feature.
Public Station: If a non-restricted user (typically the attendant) transfers dial tone to a PUBLIC
station, the restriction level (level 5) of the PUBLIC phone will apply, unless higher restriction level
stations remain on the call with the PUBLIC station. If a call is transferred from a PUBLIC station to
a non-PUBLIC station, then the non-PUBLIC rule will apply.
Remote Access: Remote Access callers cannot use the Transfer feature.
Trunk-To-Trunk Transfer: A trunk call may be transferred to another trunk. Refer to the “TrunkTo-Trunk Transfer” feature description for additional information.

Features and Services
Transfer To Data
Description
This feature allows multiline voice terminal users to originate or answer a call from their voice
terminals and then establish a data connection by transferring the call to a data terminal.
Note: Single-line voice terminals cannot be used to establish a data connection by transferring a call to a data endpoint.
(Refer also to the overview of the system’s data features provided in the “Data Services Overview”
description.)
Data terminal calls can be set up from a multiline voice terminal with a DATA button. The DATA
button is associated by Data Dial Code (DDC) with a digital data endpoint. A separate DATA button
must be provided for each data terminal that the voice terminal can transfer calls to.
The DATA button status LED provides status indications for the data endpoint:
●
Dark—Data endpoint is idle
●
Winking—Data endpoint is reserved
●
Flashing—Data endpoint is being alerted to an incoming call
●
Steadily Lighted—Data endpoint off-hook (busy).
The DATA button status LED will wink only when a voice terminal reserves a data endpoint by Data
Call Preindication.
Data Call Origination Using Transfer to Data
A voice terminal user, after calling a DDC or a PDC (to reach an analog data endpoint) receives
either answer tone or called party answer, respectively. The user then transfers the call to the
associated data terminal by pressing DATA and hanging up. The called party may also use Transfer
To Data to transfer the call to a data terminal, or may press the Data button on an associated
modem.
An inside call cannot be transferred via Transfer To Data until the far end answers.
If a handshake failure occurs after Transfer To Data, the data call will be disconnected and the data
terminal left in the idle (on-hook) state.
Note: Even if the associated data port is optioned for autobaud, the call will be set up at the
highest common speed that the calling and called data terminals are administered for,
independent of the current data terminal settings.
2-344
November 1995
Transfer To Data
Data Call Preindication
A multiline voice terminal user, by going off-hook and pressing an idle DATA button, may
indicate that a data call will be attempted. This reserves the associated data port and a
modem pool conversion resource. This procedure is recommended when the data call is a
trunk call. The data port reservation is acknowledged by a winking status LED at the DATA
button. Subsequently, invoking Transfer To Data transfers the call to the associated data
terminal.
Preindication is canceled:
●
If the user goes on-hook before transferring the call to data
●
If the user preindicates on a second DATA button
●
If, after dialing is complete, a second DATA button is pressed. Preindication is
canceled for the first data terminal and the data call is transferred to the second data
terminal.
When Preindication is canceled, the associated pooled modem conversion resource
reservation is canceled.
Interactions
The following feature interacts with Transfer To Data.
Modern Pooling: If a conversion resource is required on an external call, invoking Data Call
Preindication will cause a pooled modem conversion resource to be reserved. If none is
available (e.g., the system has no Pooled Modem CP), Reorder Tone is provided. (This will
occur whether a conversion resource is actually required or not.)

FEATURES AND SERVICES
Trunk Groups
Description
This feature allows each trunk in the system to be assigned to one of up to 16 trunk groups.
Trunks link two switching systems, such as System 25 and the local CO or System 25 and
another PBX. Although not required, trunks can be grouped together in trunk groups
(sometimes referred to as pooled facilities) when all the trunks in the group perform the
same function. This grouping provides resource pooling that results in better service with a
given number of trunks. It also simplifies administration and calling. Calls are routed to the
appropriate trunk group; an idle trunk, if available, is selected from the group. Up to 16 trunk
groups (pooled facilities) may be assigned in the system.
Several different kinds of trunk groups can be assigned in System 25:
●
Central Office (CO)—Provides a link with the local CO for calls except Direct Inward
Dial (DID) calls. Trunks classed as “CO” have a number of special characteristics.
●
Foreign Exchange (FX)—CO trunks that connect to a CO other than the local CO.
●
Wide Area Telecommunications Service (WATS)—CO trunks that connect to an
Outward WATS office or a dial 800 (in-WATS) Service office.
●
Direct Inward Dial (DID)—Provides incoming (only) service from the local CO. These
calls go directly to voice terminals instead of through the attendant.
●
Tie—Provides a link with another private switching system or network.
Trunk groups can be one-way (incoming) or two-way. Selection of the trunk group to be
used for a given call is determined by the initial digits of a dialed number (or by the ARS
feature). These digits are referred to as the facility access code. Each trunk group is
assigned a unique code. Assuming an idle trunk in the selected group is found, a seizure
signal (service request) is sent to the distant switch. If the distant switch requires dialed
digits (as all but some tie trunks do), a signal (Dial Tone) is returned to System 25, indicating
readiness to accept dialed digits.
Trunk type refers to the physical design of a trunk circuit. The trunk types supported and a
brief description of each are given below. Refer to Section 3, “Functional Description” and
Section 9, “Glossary” for additional information.
●
Loop Start— A closure signal is sent through the loop formed by the trunk leads.
●
Ground Start—Similar to loop start but enhanced with ground signals.
●
Immediate Start—No start dial signals are used. On outgoing calls, the system waits
at least 80 ms after sending the seizure signal before sending the digits required by
the distant switch. This allows the distant switch enough time to attach a digit
receiver to the trunk (Tie and DID trunks).
2-346
Trunk Groups
●
Wink Start—A momentary signal (wink) is sent to the distant switch (Tie and DID
trunks).
●
Delay Dial—A steady signal is sent to the distant switch and is removed when ready
to receive digits (Tie trunks only).
●
Automatic— No start dial signals are used.
sufficient to route the call (Tie trunks only).
The seizure signal sent or received is
Trunk groups connecting with a local CO, WATS office, or FX office can be ground or loop
start. DID trunk groups can be immediate or wink start. Tie trunks groups can be automatic,
wink start, immediate start, or delay dial.
Dual Tone Multifrequency (DTMF) signaling (touch-tone) or dial pulse signaling can be used
between the System 25 and the far end switch. System 25 can send or receive either type of
signaling required by the distant switch (DID trunks can only receive dial pulse signals). The
type to be used is specified when the associated trunk is administered.
An incoming call can be connected to another trunk, a voice terminal, a data endpoint, an
attendant console, or an announcement. When the call is answered, an off-hook indication is
sent to the serving office. This signal may be used to initiate the recording of call details
normally used for billing.
Trunks in a two-way trunk group should be translated (at the SAT) in the same order that the
serving office hunts when searching for an idle trunk. System 25 will then hunt in reverse
order. This reduces the probability that both switches will attempt to seize the same trunk at
the same time.
Considerations
Trunks of the same type and Class Of Service may be assigned a (Pooled) Facility Access
Code. This provides users with dial or direct (button) access to the trunk pool. Trunks may
be dial access restricted to reserve them for ARS and direct access only.
Refer to “Recommended Central Office Trunk Facilities” (Section 5) for an estimate of CO
trunk requirements based on traffic considerations. See the “Pooled Facility-Direct Access”
and “Pooled Facility-Dial Access” feature descriptions for additional information.
Trunks may be reserved for incoming calls (e.g., sales or service department calls) by
specifying this in the (administered) Class of Service code.
Interactions
The following features interact with Trunk Groups.
Direct Group Calling: Most trunks may be administered so that incoming calls are directed
to a specified DGC group. For tie trunks, only the automatic-in type may be so administered.
2-347
FEATURES AND SERVICES
Facility Access Restriction (see “Calling Restrictions”): Stations may be restricted from
dialing the CO trunk pool and/or all (fifteen) other trunk groups (as a whole). Stations so
restricted may still dial out if they are transferred to a trunk by another station not so
restricted.
Tie Trunks: Refer to the “Tie Trunks” feature description.
Toll Restriction (see “Calling Restrictions”): When toll restricted stations access FX, WATS,
or Tie trunks, they are not toll restricted (i.e., toll restriction applies to CO trunks only).
Administration Requirements

Trunk-To-Trunk Transfer
Trunk-To-Trunk Transfer
Description
This feature allows users to connect incoming trunk calls to other outside trunks and then
hang up (under certain conditions).
Incoming trunk calls may be transferred to another trunk, or conferenced with another trunk.
In all cases and at all times, either a System 25 station must remain in the conference or one
of the calls must be an incoming call on a ground start, loop start (administered for trunk-totrunk transfer), DID, or tie trunk. The other call may be on any type of trunk and may be
incoming or outgoing.
Considerations
Trunk-to-trunk transfer is particularly useful when an outside caller requests a transfer to
another outside number. For example, an employee can call in and have their call
transferred elsewhere. Note that as long as an inside station stays on the call (even if a
multiline station puts the call on hold and hangs up) any two trunks may be conferenced. If
the station drops out of the call, the trunk conference will be torn down unless the above
conditions are met.
If a System 25 station enters a trunk-to-trunk transfer call via a line appearance button for
one of the conference trunks, the call will still be broken down when one of the outside
parties hangs up.
A Direct Group Calling call that comes in on a ground start trunk and is answered at a
single-line set is not eligible for trunk-to-trunk transfer.
Interactions
The following feature interacts with Trunk-To-Transfer Transfer.
Conference: Trunk-To-Trunk transfers may be set up using the Conference feature. The
conference must include an incoming trunk call on either a ground start, DID, or tie trunk if it
is to continue after all inside stations have dropped off.
Administration Requirements
System:
●
Allow trunk-to-trunk transfer on loop start trunks? (yes or no; default = no).
This capability should be assigned only where Central Offices give a reliable
disconnect signal of at least 600 milliseconds at the end of the Loop Start call.

entry level menu.
Changing Options—General
When on the Options Menu, the user selects <Change options> either by moving the cursor
(with the space bar) beneath <Change options> and pressing RETURN, or by typing the
single letter code (c) associated with that item.
If the user selects <Change options> from the Options menu, the first half of the Change

first and second halves of this menu.
Since these two lines are actually two halves of a single menu, users may select a particular
menu item while active on either half of the menu. For example, users who are active on the
first half of the menu may select <Answer text> by typing “a”.
2-352
User Changeable Options
Once a user has selected an option to be changed, a menu of valid settings for this option is
displayed (<Yes>, <No>, etc.). An “X” is displayed beneath the current setting of the
options, or beneath an option that may have been changed but not yet enabled. For all
options except <Speed> (see below), settings may be selected either by moving the cursor
(using the space bar) beneath the item desired and then pressing RETURN, or by typing the
single-letter code associated with that setting. The user is then returned to the Change
Options menu to make additional changes if required.
Changing Data Port Speed
The procedure for changing Speed settings is different from the procedure for changing the
settings of other options. Within the Speed menu, the user may find that several values are
marked with Xs. To change a speed, move the cursor beneath each value to be changed
and type “+” to add the value or “-” to delete it. Once the new settings have been marked,
press RETURN to translate the plus and minus signs to their proper “X” values and then
type “x” to <eXit> from the Speed menu and return to the Change Options menu. For
example:
The user enters the Speed menu and finds the following settings active:
<exit>
<low>
<300>
X
<1200>
X
<2400>
X
<4800>

<View options>
<Enable options>
From the above menu:
●
If the user selects <Undo>, the user is returned to the Command Mode entry level

FEATURES AND SERVICES
Virtual Facilities
Description
A virtual facility (VF) is a call routing facility that is not defined by the physical facility (trunk)
over which calls are routed, but is instead defined by a combination of access codes,
authorization codes, and coded characters that allow special handling of the destination
telephone numbers. VFS can be used to automatically route calls via other carrier networks,
private networks, or tie trunks.
Up to ten virtual facility numbers (VFNs) may be administered. Each stored number may be
up to 28 characters in length and is associated with a code in the range of #190 to #199.
The first digits in a stored VFN must be the facility access code (FAC) for a physical trunk
group over which the call is to be routed. A series of digits and special characters are
stored following the FAC to define additional routes, Inter-Exchange Carrier (lXC) codes,
identification codes, or instructions concerning special handling of the destination telephone
number. When a VF has been defined using a particular trunk group, it has full access to all
trunks in that group. It is considered “busy” only when the physical trunk group is busy.
When a VF is dial accessed by a system user, calling restriction is based on the station’s
administered calling restrictions.
A system user may gain access to a VF by:
●
Dialing the VF code (#190-#199).
●
Storing the VF code as the first digits on a REP DIAL button. Other digits (for
example, the destination telephone number) may be stored following the VF code.
●
Dialing a System Speed Dialing code (#100-#189) that contains a VF as part of the
stored number. The VF code must be the first digits stored in the Speed Dialing
number.
●
Dialing a Personal Speed Dialing code (#20-#39) that contains a VF as part of the
stored number. The VF code must be the first digits stored in the Speed Dialing
number.
●
Using Automatic Route Selection (ARS) and having a VF as the route selected by
ARS.
Note:
The system can be administered to allow or restrict dial access for each VF
code. If dial access is restricted (system default), a VF may be accessed only
when used in an ARS routing pattern.
When virtual facilities are used in ARS patterns, they assume the same capabilities and
restrictions as physical facilities. For example:
●
Each VF may have a digit deletion and insertion scheme associated with it.
●
Selective restriction of a VF may be accomplished by assignment of Facility
Restriction Levels (FRLs).
2-356
Virtual Facilities
If the VF is used in the first position of a routing pattern, calls may queue on it if all of the
routes are busy.
Whenever a VF is used to complete a call (either by dial access or through ARS), call
processing treats the number as a physical facility for Station Message Detail Recording
(SMDR) purposes. Thus, if VF code #190 is used to complete a call, the SMDR call record
will show “#190” as the facility used.
A VFN may contain up to 28 characters. The pound sign (#) is used as an escape character
within the digit string and indicates that the character following the pound sign requires
special interpretation. The following table defines the special characters that may be
included in a VFN.
CHARACTER

#5
Insert dialed digits (destination telephone
number) here. The destination telephone
number may be up to 16 digits in length
(21 if ARS digit translations have
occurred).
If #5 is used, it must be placed within the
last nine digits of the VFN. If #5 is n o t
used within a VFN, the dialed digits are
appended to the end of the VFN.
#8
Begin transmission of End-to-End
Signaling (system begins transmitting
touch-tone signals to the far end switch).
Examples of Virtual Facility Numbers
The use of VFS can be demonstrated with the following examples:
●
●
Example 1: VF Code = #191, VFN = 100 10288
—
The first three digits (100) represent the FAC for a CO trunk group.
—
10288 represents an access code for a non-primary IXC.
—
The destination telephone number (dialed by the user) will be transmitted
after this IXC access code, since “#5” was not used within the VF number.
Example 2:
●
VF Code = #193, VFN = 221 9 ✶ 555 4343 ✶ # 5 # ✶ 12345
The first three digits (221) represent the FAC for a tie trunk to a remote PBX.
2-357
FEATURES AND SERVICES
—
The “9” is used to access the remote PBX’s ARS.
—
The “ ✶ ” represents a pause of 1.5 seconds (allows time for dial tone to
occur).
—
The “555 4343” defines the local address of a private network and its
internal routing table.
— The “ ✶ ” represents a 1.5 second pause.
●
—
The “#5” indicates that the destination number should be inserted here,
rather than at the end of the VF translation.
—
The “ # ✶ ” indicates that the system should transmit a “ ✶ ” symbol as the
first character of an identification code.
—
The “12345” represents the remaining characters in the identification code.
Example 3:
VF Code = #195, VFN = 104 5554567 ✶✶✶✶ 1234 ✶ 9
This example demonstrates how a VF might be used in place of a tie trunk group
connecting two local PBXs, when you have permission to access the other PBX’sS
facilities to complete calls.
2-358
—
The first three digits (104) represent the FAC for a CO trunk group.
—
The “5554567” represents the number for the other PBX.
—
The “ ✶ ✶ ✶ ✶ ” represents a 6 second pause (allows time for the other PBX
to answer and return new dial tone).
—
The “1234” represents a “barrier” (security) code required to access the
other PBX’s facilities.
—
The ✶ represents a 1.5 second pause.
—
The “9” represents an ARS access code for the other PBX.
—
Since “#5” was not used within the VFN, the destination telephone number
(dialed digits) will be transmitted after this ARS access code.
Virtual Facilities
Accessing a Virtual Facility
Dial access is provided by dialing the VF code (#190-#199, including the “#”), followed by
the destination telephone number.
●
Example:
— The user dials the following VF code and associated destination telephone
number.
#192 12125551643.
—
The stored VFN
2222 ✶ 333 ✶ 444.

code
#192
is
defined
as
— The first four digits (2222) represent the FAC for a tie trunk group to a remote
PBX.
— The ✶ represents a 1.5 second pause.
— The next three digits (333) represent the security code required by the remote
PBX, indicating that you have permission to access their facilities.
— The ✶ represents a 1.5 second pause, as the remote PBX checks the validity
of your security code.
— The final three digits (444) represent the FAC required by the remote PBX to
access their Band 5 WATS trunks.
— Since “#5” was not embedded within this VFN, the destination telephone
number (12125551643) will be transmitted after the WATS access code.
VF codes may be included in numbers stored in REP DIAL buttons, System Speed Dialing
codes, and Personal Speed Dialing codes if the VF code is used at the beginning of these
numbers. VF codes may not be assigned to FACILITY buttons and may not be embedded in
other virtual facility numbers.
VFs may be used in ARS routing patterns just as if they were physical facilities.
Considerations
VFs enhance the Automatic Route Selection feature by increasing the number of facility types
available for use in routing patterns. Using ARS ensures that the least-cost facility is used to
complete each call. User intervention is minimized and associated user dialing errors are
essentially eliminated.
In addition, in those systems where users are permitted dial access to VFs, user dialing of
long digit strings is minimized, as are the associated dialing errors.
2-359
FEATURES AND SERVICES
Interactions
When using a VF through dial access, calling restrictions will be based on the station’s class
of service. Dial access VF calls will be completed only if:
●
The VF code is valid and not dial restricted.
●
The station is not outward restricted.
●
The station has dial access permission for the physical facility embedded within the
VFN.
●

AUDIX Voice Power System
AUDIX Voice Power System
Description
The AT&T AUDIX VOICE POWER (AVP) System provides a group of communications services
that expand System 25 operation in the area of collecting, processing, and delivering voice
messages for inside users and outside callers. It functions somewhat like a sophisticated systemwide answering machine and/or an automated attendant. AVP is an adjunct to System 25,
connected by way of special ports on analog tip/ring circuit packs. Administration procedures
establish the proper System 25-to-AVP interface and set up the desired AVP capabilities.
The AVP hardware and software are part of System 25’s Integrated Solution.
Five separate services are available with AVP. The first listed is user-oriented, that is, intended
primarily for people inside the system. The other four are caller-oriented, that is, designed for
managing incoming calls.
●
Voice Mail Service—The primary service of AVP. It allows users to send voice messages to
each other, retrieve their own messages (both inside and outside), record personal
greetings to callers, and administer passwords.
●
Automated Attendant Service—Answers incoming calls and gives the caller a choice of
destinations (including attendant) or of recording a message for some inside station.
●
Announcement Service—Provides simple announcements to callers, then disconnects.
Useful for answering calls during nonbusiness hours and for providing information to
employees.
●
Call Coverage Service—Answers incoming calls and allows the caller to record a message
or be transferred to an attendant.
●
Message Drop Service—Allows certain users to record messages to solicit information from
callers. After dialing an assigned number and hearing the message, callers can record their
responses. Useful for product and marketing surveys.
For complete information on AVP, refer to its own set of documentation.
Security Considerations
Potential Abuse of the Feature
Unauthorized persons concentrate their activities in two areas with AUDIX Voice Power: (1) they try
to locate unused or unprotected mailboxes and use them as drop-off points for their own messages,
or (2) they try to transfer out of AUDIX Voice Power, gain access to an outgoing trunk, and make
long distance calls.
Techniques for Minimizing Abuse
1. Requires employees who have voice mailboxes to use passwords to protect their mailboxes.
Follow secure password procedures as described below:
November 1995
2-361
Features and Services
Choosing Passwords
Passwords should be as many digits as possible, and should not be obvious. Avoid those with
ascending digits (e.g., 1234), the same digits (e.g., 0000), digits corresponding to the
employee’s name (e.g., 5646 for John), the current year (e.g., 1993), the same number as
extension (e.g., extension 3455, password 3455), reverse extension (e.g., extension 3455,
password 5543), numbers that identify the user (e.g., social security, employee ID, room
number, etc.)
Establishing a Policy
As a safeguard against toll fraud, change passwords frequently. Set password expiration times
and tell users when the changes go into effect. Changing passwords routinely on a specific
date (such as the first of the month), helps users to remember to do so.
2. The AUDIX Voice Power administrator should remove unneeded voice mailboxes from the
system immediately.
3. Set up AUDIX Voice Power to limit transfers to subscribers only.
4. Program the System 25 to:
●
Block direct access to outgoing lines and force the use of account codes.
●
Disallow trunk-to-trunk transfer unless it is required.
●
Assign toll restriction levels to AUDIX Voice Power ports.
●
If you do not need to use the Outcalling feature of AUDIX Voice Power, completely
restrict the outward calling capability of the AUDIX Voice Power ports.
5. Monitor SMDR reports and/or Call Accounting System reports for outgoing calls that might be
originated by AUDIX Voice Power ports.
Interactions
The following features interact with AVP.
Leave Word Calling: AVP also supports the System 25 feature, Leave Word Calling (LWC), which
is covered in a separate feature description in Section 2, “Features and Services.”
Night Service, Directed: AVP ports maybe assigned Directed Night Service responsibilities.
Hardware Requirements
An AUDIX Voice Power System must be connected to the System 25 by way of a port on a ZTN78
Tip Ring Line circuit pack.

FUNCTIONAL DESCRIPTION
Common Control
The Common Control circuitry consists of a single ZTN142 CPU/MEM (Call Processing
Unit/Memory) circuit pack (CP).
CPU/MEM CP
The CPU/MEM runs the system feature code for the system and provides for the storage of
software associated with system operation. This CP is powered from the backplane by +5 and –5
volts. It also draws -48 volts from the backplane to drive the Emergency Transfer Unit. The CP,
shown in Figure 3-2, includes the following circuits:
●
Microprocessor
A 68010 16-bit microprocessor that executes call processing and data processing features.
This includes all maintenance, administration, testing, and reporting software.
●
Memory Management
Memory management separates the on-board Random Access Memory (RAM) into 1024
memory pages of 256 bytes each. Each page is read and write protected and generates
bus errors when violated.
●
On-Board Memory
On-board memory includes 1 Mbyte of Read Only Memory (ROM) containing the powerup
tests, the switch operating system, and the system operation software. In addition, there are
192k bytes of protected RAM containing writeable data storage for call processing. The
RAM is backed up by an on-board trickle-charge battery that maintains memory contents
for up to two months. Of the 192k RAM, 32k is dedicated to translation data. The remainder
is dedicated to call status data and the operating system message queues.
●
EIA Channels
Four asynchronous RS-232 EIA ports (1-4) are included to permit communication with an
administration terminal, a Station Message Detail Recording (SMDR) device, and a digital
tape unit. (The fourth port is reserved for future use.) Each port can support 300, 1200,
4800, or 9600 baud rates.
●
Network Controller
The network controller transmits control channel messages between the Call Processor and
the port circuits over the TDM bus. The controller also monitors system clocks. The
controller includes an 8-bit microprocessor that acts as a throttle passing messages
between the Call Processor and the port board microprocessors.

FUNCTIONAL DESCRIPTION
Figure 3-2. CPU/MEM (ZTN142) Circuitry
November 1995

FUNCTIONAL DESCRIPTION
All uplink messages from the port circuits are checked for consistency and passed to the
Common Control. The controller is the distribution control point for all downlink control
messages. It continuously scans, over the TDM bus, the port circuit microprocessors for
sanity and activity. External RAM associated with this microprocessor stores control
channel information and port related information.
The controller consists of bus buffers and a Sanity and Control Interface (SAKI). It also
contains a Digital Signal Processor (DSP) modem. The bus buffers provide the interface
between the TDM bus and the on-board data buses to the SAKI and DSP modem. The
SAKI receives and transmits control messages on the first five time slots on the TDM bus.
The DSP modem is a 1200-baud, answer-only modem for Remote Initialization and
Maintenance Service (RIMS) access. The microprocessor communicates with the SAKI, the
DSP modem, and external RAM over the address and data bus.
●
Clock
A clock provides both time-of-day information (in seconds, minutes, and hours), and the
date to the 68010. The clock automatically adjusts for leap years. An on-board battery
backs up the clock, so that accurate time is maintained even when the system power is off.
●
Interrupt Circuitry
Interrupts are prioritized into seven levels, of which the highest (level 7) is nonmaskable.
The interrupts are:
●

Reset Circuitry
The processor is automatically reset when power is turned on, when the +5 volt power
supply drops below 4.5 volts (after it returns to +5 volts), or when the network controller
determines that the processor is not functioning correctly. The processor can also reset the
network controller when it determines that the network controller is not functioning correctly.
●
Bus Error Circuitry
Bus errors suspend the processor from executing code. Bus errors are generated when
memory management detects illegal reads or writes to RAM, when the processor attempts
to access circuit packs or chips not physically present, or when the network controller
determines that the processor is not functioning correctly.

FUNCTIONAL DESCRIPTION
●
Emergency Transfer Unit (ETU) Control
Removes -48 V dc power from the ETUs of the system when the system loses power
or a major system malfunction occurs.
●
Bus Terminators
These resistors are required for proper operation of the TDM bus. The CPU/MEM
CP provides the proper termination for one end of the bus, and a plug-in TDM bus
termination circuit card (plugs into cabinet backplane) is used to terminate the other
end. For this reason, the CPU/MEM CP must always be located in slot #1 of
Cabinet 1.

FUNCTIONAL DESCRIPTION
Switching Network
System 25 uses distributed processing techniques to provide switched voice and data
services. The switch operates at 64 Kbps. The switching network consists of the Time
Division Multiplex (TDM) bus, the Port Circuits and the System Resource Circuits.
The TDM bus connects the intelligent ports to the Common Control circuit pack and other
ports through the network control circuit. The system resource circuits provide tone
sources, receivers, detectors, and pooled modems. The intelligent ports connect external
communications facilities to the TDM bus.
TDM Bus
The TDM bus consists of two groups of eight signal leads and five control leads, each with
matching grounds. The port circuit packs place digitized voice [pulse code modulated
(PCM)] signals on the bus.
The bus operates at 2.048 MHz. The framing pulse rate is 8 kHz. This provides 256 time
slots (0-255) on the bus. The time slots are 488 ns wide. Time slots are generated as
shown in Figure 3-3. The first five time slots are used for communications between the
Common Control, the intelligent port, and resource circuit packs.

TDM Bus Time Slot Generation (Not A Timing Diagram)
Two time slots are required for each 2-party conversation. Each party transmits (talks) on
one time slot and receives (listens) on another. Only five parties are allowed in a conference.
During a conference connection, each member of the conference transmits on an individual
time slot while receiving on as many as four other time slots. The actual switch capacity is
115 simultaneous 2-party conversations.
Table 3-A shows the allocation of the 256 time slots. Five are used for system control, 17
for tones, 232 for call processing, and two are not used.

FUNCTIONAL DESCRIPTION
●
Physical Characteristics
The TDM bus is an 8-bit bus that snakes continuously between cabinets in a
multicabinet system as shown in Figure 3-4. The total length is about 9 feet for a
three cabinet system. The bus is driven from any of the circuit packs in the cabinets.
Similarly, a signal on the bus can be received by any circuit pack.
Within a cabinet, the bus is printed on one side of the circuit pack carrier backplane
while the other side is solid ground. Ribbon cables are used to connect the TDM bus
between cabinets in a multi-cabinet system.
●
Electrical Characteristics
The TDM bus is an unbalanced, low characteristic impedance transmission line.
Paths printed over a ground plane on the carriers and the flat ribbon cables between
carriers maintain this impedance level over the full length of the bus.
One end of the bus is terminated to ground with a bus termination circuit card and
the other end is terminated by a network on the ZTN130 CPU/MEM CP. Each circuit
pack connects to the bus through a custom bus driver device. The bus driver is a
switchable constant current source so that even in the “high” output state there is no
bus loading to cause reflections. The current output of the drivers is adjusted so that
logic “high” is 1.5 volts compared to a “low” of 0 volts.

The port circuit packs listed below provide the link between trunks and external equipment and the
TDM bus. Figure 3-5 shows the equipment types that can be connected to the digital switch by the
call processing and port circuit packs.

Circuitry Common to All Port CPs
Eight port circuits are provided on most port circuit packs. Twenty-four circuit capability is provided
on the DS1 circuit pack. The Multibutton Electronic Telephone (MET) Line, Tie Trunk, and Auxiliary
Trunk Circuit Packs each contain four port circuits. The port circuits provide an interface between
terminals/trunks and the TDM bus. The number of port circuit packs required varies according to
customer requirements and equipment configuration. Each of the System 25 port circuit packs
contain a number of common elements (see Figure 3-6) as well as the unique port circuits. The
common elements are as follows:
●
Bus Buffers
The bus buffers are the digital interface between the backplane TDM bus wires (system
bus) and the on-board circuitry (data bus). They also receive and distribute clock and frame
signals.
●
On-Board Microprocessor With External RAM
The on-board processor does all low-level functions, such as scanning for changes and
relay operations. In general, it carries out commands received from the Common Control
and reports status changes to it. The external RAM stores control channel information and
port-related information.
●
SAKI (Sanity and Control Interface)
The SAKI is the control interface between the Common Control that sends information via
the network control circuit down the TDM buses and the on-board circuitry controlled by the
on-board microprocessor. The SAKI receives control information (down-link messages) on
the first five time slots and, as requested by the on-board microprocessor, transmits control
information (up-link messages) on these same time slots. (Continued on Page 3-13.)

FUNCTIONAL DESCRIPTION
●
NPE (Network Processing Element)
Each port circuit pack contains one or two NPEs. The Analog Line, ATL Line, Tip
Ring, Data Line, Ground Start, Loop Start, and DID Trunk Circuit Packs contain two
NPEs. The MET Line, Auxiliary Trunk, and Tie Trunk Circuit Packs contain one NPE.
The NPEs do switching network functions for the port circuits. Under control of the
on-board microprocessor, an NPE can connect a port circuit to any one of the TDM
bus time slots. More specifically, it allows a port circuit to talk on one time slot and
listen to the same time slot (NPE sidetone) and on up to four other time slots at the
same time. In 2-wire circuits that provide their own sidetone, the NPE sidetone is not
used.

Analog Line (TN742)
The Analog Line CP (Figure 3-7) interfaces eight analog voice terminal lines and the TDM
bus. The TN742 can be used instead of the ZTN78 Tip Ring CP. The TN742 supports up to
five bridged single-line voice terminals, but only two can be off hook at one time. The ZTN78
CP does not support bridged terminals. In addition, the TN742 supports out-of-building,
extended, and off-premises stations, the ZTN78 does not. The Analog Line has the following
unique circuitry:
●
Ringing Application Circuit
This circuit receives ringing voltage from the power supply. It monitors ringing
voltage and current, generates signals to the on-board microprocessor indicating
zero ringing voltage and current, and detects a terminal user lifting the receiver
during ringing. This prevents the application of ringing to the port circuit when a
terminal user lifts the receiver during the ringing phase. Maintenance circuitry is also
included. The maintenance circuitry detects when a terminal is connected to the port
circuitry and checks for faults in the ringing application circuitry.
●
Port I/O Circuit
This circuit consists of bus expanders connecting the on-board microprocessor and
the port circuits. It receives commands from the on-board microprocessor and
distributes them to the individual port circuits. It also accesses the port circuit scan
points and passes the information to the on-board microprocessor.

Port Circuits
The eight port circuits are identical. Each port circuit consists of a coder/decoder (codec),
hybrid circuit, electronic battery feed circuit, ring relay, and overvoltage surge protection
circuit.
The codec is a 4-wire circuit that converts the analog signal from a voice terminal to a PCM
data signal. It converts an incoming PCM data signal from the NPEs to an analog signal.

FUNCTIONAL DESCRIPTION
The electronic battery feed circuit provides talking battery to the voice terminal. It also
produces a controlled dc battery feed for short and long loops, detects when a receiver is
lifted, and provides the message waiting signal by periodically turning off the feed voltage.
The ring relay provides the interface between the ringing application circuit and the port
circuit. It causes ringing turn on and turn off.
The overvoltage surge protection circuit provides lightning surge and power line crossprotection for the circuit pack.
ATL Line (ZTN79)
The ATL Line CP (Figure 3-8) interfaces eight ATL voice terminals corded and/or cordless (7300H
series) lines and the TDM bus. It terminates three pairs of wires from each terminal: analog voice
pair, digital control pair, and power pair. The ATL Line has the following unique circuitry:
●
Protocol Handler
The 8-bit on-board microprocessor translates the control information in Control Channel
Message Set (CCMS) message format to the control information message format used by
the 7300H series voice terminals. The protocol handler sends the messages to the
terminals via transceivers located in the port circuits.
●
Port Circuits
Each port circuit is identical. A port circuit consists of an analog port, one-half of a
transceiver, and an electronic power feed device.
The analog port circuit consists of a codec, a hybrid circuit, an isolation transformer, and
associated power filtering circuitry. The codec and hybrid circuit perform the same function
as the codec and hybrid circuit in the Analog Line Circuit Pack (TN742). The output of the
hybrid circuit is connected to the primary of the isolation transformer. The secondary of the
transformer is connected to the analog voice pair.
The transceiver interfaces the voice terminal pair to the protocol handler. The electronic
power feed device provides -48 volts dc on the power pair to the voice terminal. The
device is polled by the on-board microprocessor, periodically and on demand, to test for an
overcurrent or no-current condition.
Each Electronic Power Feed (EPF) circuit supports two ports. If one of the associated lines
becomes overloaded, the associated pair of lines will also be out of service. One EPF
supports Ports 0 and 1, one Ports 2 and 3, one Ports 4 and 5, and one Ports 6 and 7. The
on/off state of the device is controlled by the on-board microprocessor.

Auxiliary Trunk (TN763)
The Auxiliary Trunk Circuit Pack (Figure 3-9) interfaces four ports provided for customerprovided equipment (CPE) and the TDM bus. It is connected to the CPE by up to three pairs
of wires. The transmission pair (T and R) carry voice signals and touch-tone control signals.
The T and R also provide a loop start seizure indication to the CPE. The seizure pair (SZ
and SZ1) provide seizure indication to the CPE. The signal pair (S and S1) provide answer
supervision and/or make-busy information from the CPE. Depending on the application,
either the transmission pair only or all three pairs are connected to the CPE. The Auxiliary
Trunk has the following unique circuitry:
●
Ground Detector Circuit
This circuit determines if an answer-supervision or make-busy signal from the CPE is
present. The inputs of the ground detector come from the port circuits as an analog
current to the -48 volt dc supply. Its output is a port control point to the port I/O
circuit.
●
Port I/O Circuit
This circuit consists of bus expanders for communication between the on-board
microprocessor and the port circuits. It receives commands from the on-board
microprocessor and distributes them to the individual port circuits. It also accesses
the port circuit scan points and passes the information to the on-board
microprocessor.
●
Port Circuits
The four port circuits are identical. Each port circuit consists of a codec, hybrid
circuit, line transformer, relay driver, battery polarity sensor, and surge protection
circuit.
The codec is a 4-wire circuit that converts the analog signal from the CPE to a PCM
data signal. It converts an incoming PCM data signal from the NPE to an analog
signal. The hybrid circuit converts the 4-wire analog signal from the codec to a 2wire analog signal that is connected to the CPE by a line transformer.
The relay driver buffers and inverts the relay drive signals from the port I/O circuit so
that a logic high input operates the appropriate relay. The relays control circuitry that
provide the proper interfaces for CPE.
The surge protection circuit provides lightning surge protection for the circuit pack.
The circuit pack supports both touch-tone and dial pulse signaling. Longitudinal
surges are isolated from the hybrid and codec by the line transformer.

Data Line (TN726)
The Data Line Circuit Pack (Figure 3-10) interfaces eight Asynchronous Data Units (ADUs)
data devices and the TDM bus. The ADUs are typically, in turn, connected to RS-232 type
devices. The Data Line has the following unique circuitry:
●
Bit Clock
The bit clock circuitry is used to provide the Octal Asynchronous Terminal Mode Two
EIA Asynchronous LSIs (OATMEALs) with a clock frequency that is a multiple of each
baud rate. In addition, the clock rate is divided down to 160 kHz. The 160 kHz is
then compared to the 160 kHz system data clock and is phase-locked to it. The
phase-locked circuit is required for low speed operation.
●
Bus Isolation
This portion of the circuit pack is used to isolate the microprocessor bus. Isolation is
required because the realized bus load exceeds the maximum limit specified for this
device, due to the large number of devices controlled by the NPE. The OATMEALs
are isolated from the common bus structure.

Port Circuits
Each of the eight identical port circuits allows the connection of interface equipment
having an RS-232 compatible serial interface to the switch. The circuit provides
asynchronous full duplex data transport at standard speeds from 300 to 19,200 bps
and a low data rate (<300 bps). Each port includes an Asynchronous Data Unit
(ADU) to extend the serial communications link length and provide safe isolation.
The ADU terminates to another ADU at the Customer Provided Equipment (CPE).
The distance between the digital switch and CPE is inversely proportional to the
speed at which the link is run.
Throughout the circuit, various gates are used to provide a means of isolating
devices for automated circuit pack testing. Typically, these devices are crystal
oscillators or memory components attached to the microprocessor bus.
DID Trunk (TN753)
The DID Trunk CP (Figure 3-11) interfaces eight central office trunks arranged for Direct
Inward Dialing (DID) and the TDM bus. The DID Trunk has the following unique circuitry:
●
Port I/O Circuit
This circuit consists of bus expanders for communication between the on-board
microprocessor and the port circuits. It receives commands from the on-board

to the NPE.
The trunk interface unit contains a hybrid, a 2-wire interface circuit, and control
circuitry. The hybrid circuit converts the 4-wire analog signal from the codec to a 2wire analog signal that is connected to the analog line by the 2-wire interface circuit.
The control circuitry controls loop current, internal signal gain, terminating resistance,
battery feed shutdown, and battery reversal. The circuit pack accepts dial pulse

Circuits

a codec, a hybrid circuit, an electronic battery feed, and a power filter. The codec,
hybrid circuit, and power filter perform the same function as in the Analog Line
Circuit Pack (TN742). The electronic battery feed provides talking battery to the MET
set, produces a controlled dc battery feed current for short and long loops, and
detects when a MET set user lifts a receiver. The digital port circuit provides a full
duplex channel over two 2-wire pairs. All outgoing lamp (LT, LR) and incoming
button depression (BT, BR) information is carried on these channels. Ringing and

switchhook information is also sent over these channels.
The electronic power feed device provides phantomed -48 volt dc power for the MET
terminals over the data channels. The electronic power feed device is a “smart”
circuit breaker. When it senses an overcurrent condition, it indicates the condition on
an output lead and goes into thermal shutdown if not turned off by the on-board
microprocessor. When the overcurrent condition disappears, the circuit breaker can
be turned on by the on-board microprocessor.
STARLAN Interface (ZTN84)
The STARLAN Interface (ZTN84) Circuit Pack functions as either a gateway or a bridge
between System 25 and the AT&T STARLAN NETWORK (Release 2 of STARLAN only). The
ZTN84 CP contains much of the circuitry common to the other CPS in the system, that is a
Sanity and Control Interface (SAKI), a Network Processing Element (NPE), and a 8031
microprocessor. The CP also contains the circuitry required to perform the protocol
conversion on the data as it travels from one system to the other. These devices include a
80186 microprocessor, 82586 coprocessor, four Octal Asynchronous Terminal Mode 2 to EIA
Asynchronous LSI (OATMEAL) devices, and a logic sequencer. The 80186, the 82586, and
the logic sequencer (PLS105N) work together to add and delete the protocol used by the
Local Area Network (LAN), while the 80186 and the OATMEALS work together to add and
delete the protocol used by the PBX.
The ZTN84 can support up to four circuit switch connections between the Private Branch
Exchange (PBX) and the Local Area Network (LAN); this capability is provided by the four
OATMEALS and the NPE, the latter being a four channel device. In providing a connection
between the PBX and the LAN, capabilities such as file sharing, printer services, connections
to hosts, and modem pooling may be accessible across systems.
The OATMEAL devices on the ZTN84 are used in such a way as to support asynchronous
data communication at any of the standard rates ranging from 300 bps to 19.2 Kbps. The
asynchronous protocol that is used is a subset of Digital Communications Protocol (DCP)
Mode 2, as only “I” channel information is transmitted, where the data is formatted in HighLevel Data Link Control (HDLC) frames.
The ZTN84 has been designed with a hardware interface that allows the CP to be connected
to a STARLAN NETWORK as an OUT connection. This can be connected to a STARLAN
NETWORK Extension Unit (NEU) IN connection, in a star configuration.
The design of the ZTN84 is not fully compatible with the daisy-chain arrangement of the
STARLAN NETWORK, since much of the daisy-chain circuitry was left off of the card. For
testing purposes, the card can be used in a limited daisy-chain arrangement, where the
ZTN84 is connected to a personal computer (PC) that possesses a Network Access Unit
(NAU). The ZTN84 and the PC should be the only two devices forming the LAN. The daisychain circuitry was omitted in order to reduce cost and save board space. It is also the
architectural design of the system that the PBX be connected to the LAN by a NEU. The NEU
can either be local, in the telephone room with the switch, or in a remote office.

FUNCTIONAL DESCRIPTION
Tie Trunk (TN760B)
The Tie Trunk Circuit Pack (Figure 3-15) interfaces four 6-wire tie trunks and the TDM bus.
Two tip and ring pairs form a 4-wire analog transmission line. An E and M pair are used for
signaling. The T and R pair transmit analog signals from the circuit pack. The T1 and R1 pair
receive analog signals from the tie trunk. The E and M pair are dc signaling leads used for
call setup handshaking. The E lead receives signals from the tie trunk and the M lead
provides signals from the circuit pack. The TN760Bs four port circuits support Type I, Type I
Compatible, or Type V signaling. Incoming and outgoing trunks can be either automatic,
immediate start, wink start, or delay dial. The Tie Trunk has the following unique circuitry:
●
Ground Detector Circuit
This circuit determines if a ground has been applied to the E lead. Ground detector
inputs come from the port circuits as an analog current to the -48 volt dc supply. Its
output is a port control point to the port I/O circuit.
●

microprocessor and the port circuits. It receives commands from the on-board

the port circuit scan points and passes the information to the microprocessor.
●
Port Circuits
The four port circuits are identical, except for port 3 where part of the E-lead
maintenance circuit is located. Each port circuit consists of a codec with associated
input and output line transformers, analog operational amplifiers, a power filter.
loop-around transistors, port control comparators, a relay driver, an electronic power
feed device, an E-lead test maintenance circuit, and surge protection circuits.
The codec converts the incoming 4-wire analog signal from the tie trunk to a PCM
data signal. The codec converts the incoming PCM data signal from the NPE to an
analog signal. outgoing and incoming line transformers provide dc isolation to the tip
and ring leads. Analog operational amplifiers provide amplification and buffering for
the codec and network and loop-around gain compensation. Filtered power is
provided to the codec and amplifiers.
The loop-around transistors are under control of the port control comparators and
provide a loop-around path for the signal for testing purposes. The relay driver
buffers and inverts the relay drive signals from the port I/O circuit so that a logic high
input operates the appropriate relay. The relays and electronic power feed device
control the M-lead circuitry to provide the proper signaling handshake for call
progress tones and dial pulse dialing.
The electronic feed device provides a -48 volt dc current to the M-lead circuits. It
also tests the M-lead circuits for opens or shorts and prevents uncontrolled operation
during power-up. The E-lead test circuit provides a ground to the ground detector
circuit for testing purposes. The surge protection circuitry provides lightnlng surge
and power cross protection for the circuit pack. For each port circuit, E&M/Simplex
and surge protection are selected by switch settings as shown on Figure 3-16.

Each port circuit is identical. A port circuit consists of a coder/decoder (codec),
hybrid circuit, battery feed circuit, and ring relay.
The codec is a 4-wire circuit that converts the NPEs output to an analog signal.
Likewise, it converts the analog signal from a central office trunk to a PCM data
signal to the NPE. The hybrid circuit converts the codec 4-wire analog signal to a 2wire analog signal that is connected to the central office trunk by the line
transformer.
The battery feed circuit provides talking battery to the voice terminal. It also detects
when a receiver is lifted, and provides the message waiting signal by periodically
reducing the feed voltage to zero.
The ring relay provides the interface between the ringing application circuit and the
port circuit. It causes ringing to turn on and off.
System Resources
The System Resource Circuit Packs (CPS) are the Service Circuit Clock (ZTN131), the Tone
Detector (TN748B), and the Pooled Modem (TN758).
Service Circuit Clock (ZTN131)
The Service Circuit CP (Figure 3-18) provides the clock signals of the system and generates
and receives tones. It provides four touch-tone receivers, generates all tones for the system,
and supplies the system clocks. The ZTN131 can support up to 75 Dual Tone
Multifrequency (DTMF) dialers depending on call traffic; the TN748Bs might be required in
heavy traffic situations, even with less than 75 DTMF dialers. Each System 25 must contain

This circuit functions the same as the microprocessor in the common circuitry for the

circuit the appropriate time slots in which to place a tone. The external RAM also
has work space for complex tones (i.e., those tones that vary with time).
●
Clock Circuit
The clock circuit consists

circuitry. The clock circuits
and is not controlled by the
of a 20.48-MHz oscillator, various dividers, and shift
runs independently from the rest of the Service Circuit
start running when the circuit pack is first powered up
on-board microprocessor.
The output of the 20.48-MHz oscillator is fed to the clock divider. The divider divides
by 10, 2560, and 128. These circuits produce the 2.048-MHz, 8-kHz, and 160-kHz
clock signals, respectively. The clock generator feeds these signals to the clock
driver/receiver bus buffer and the tone clock. The tone clock uses these signals to
synchronize the counters in the tone generator and time slot table circuits with the
TDM bus.
●
Tone Generator
The tone generator consists of a digital signal processor (DSP), a counter, and a
dual-port tone RAM. The DSP operates at 10 MHz and produces 24 different tones.
The dual-port tone RAM stores these tones in 24 different addresses. The counter
under control of the tone clock causes the DSP to transmit one sample of each tone
every 8-kHz. The counter is synchronized to the TDM bus and is offset to provide
delay needed for access time.
●
Time Slot Table and Counter
The time slot table consists of a dual-port time slot table RAM and a counter. The
dual-port RAM (DPRAM) contains 256 different addresses. These addresses
correspond to the time slots on the TDM bus. The counter sequences through the
time slot table addresses in the dual-port RAM and causes the proper tone(s) to be
output by the dual-port tone RAM on TDM bus time slots.
●
Tone Detector Ports
The Service Circuit CP provides four Dual Tone Multifrequency (DTMF) detector port
circuit interfaces via the TDM bus. Each port circuit is connected to an NPE serial
input and output. Ports 0, 1, 2, and 3 are DTMF tone detectors with NPE looparound paths.
The four port circuits contain a DSP, NPE to DSP interface circuitry, a DSP restart
circuit, and an interrupt generator. One DSP implements two tone receivers.
The TDM bus signals are connected to the DSP in serial form from the NPEs by the
DSP interface circuit. The DSP controls the output clocking of the NPE. The system
framing signal is synchronized and connects to the DSP.

FUNCTIONAL DESCRIPTION
●
Port Circuits
There are eight port circuits. Six port circuits are connected to Network Processing
Elements (NPEs). Port circuits 0, 1, 4, and 5 are DTMF tone detector ports. Each of
the six port circuits has an associated Digital Signal Processor (DSP), NPE to DSP
interface circuitry, a DSP restart circuit and an interrupt filter. Port circuits 2 and 6
are general purpose tone detector ports. Port circuits 3 and 7 provide digital loopback testing of each NPE on the circuit pack.
The NPE serializes TDM bus signals that are connected to the DSP in serial form
from the NPEs by the DSP interface circuit. Serial clock and data signals connect
directly from the NPE to the DSP. The system framing signal is synchronized and
connects to the DSP.
The DSP restart circuit controls the DSPs. When the on-board microprocessor is not
functioning properly, the DSP restart circuit takes all of the DSPs out of service. It
restarts each individual DSP under control of the port I/O and sanity check circuit.
The touch-tone DSPs, under control of the on-board microprocessor, write data
synchronously to the NPEs. The interrupt filter detects valid touch-tone signals and
allows end-to-end transmission while blocking end-to-end touch-tone signaling.
Pooled Modem (TN758)
The Pooled Modem Circuit Pack supports 0-300 and 1200 bits per second (bps) data speeds
and provides the following:
●
Circuitry to provide a signal compatible with the modulation formats of the 212-series
modems
●
Modem emulation (see below)

Modem control functions corresponding to 212A-series modem operations.
A maximum of two Pooled Modem CPs are allowed in a single cabinet (six in a 3-cabinet
system).
The Pooled Modem CP (Figure 3-20) consists of common circuitry and two conversion
resources. The conversion resource (port) allows communications between two dissimilar
endpoints. For example, the Pooled Modem CP enables a digital data endpoint linked to an
ADU connected to a port on the Data Line CP (TN726) to communicate with either a local
analog data endpoint, such as a personal computer with a modem, or a remote host via a
CO trunk connection. Each port has two connections to the TDM bus: one to the digital
data endpoint via an ADU data module, and the other to an analog endpoint.

Pooled Modem (TN758)
Common Circuitry
The Pooled Modem contains the same common circuitry as port CPs.
●
Conversion
Resources
The two conversion resources (port circuits) are identical and each contain the
following:
— Microprocessor
— Transmit and Receive I-channel Controller (TRIC)
— Universal Synchronous/Asynchronous Receiver and Transmitter (USART)
— Data USART Clock (DUCK)
— Digital Signal Processor (DSP).
This
The microprocessor controls an on-board data module and modem.
microprocessor communicates with the port circuit microprocessor over a serial
control channel. This channel allows the on-board microprocessor to send
messages to the port circuit microprocessor specifying call startup information,
option settings, information requests, various test modes, and call termination
3-36
FUNCTIONAL DESCRIPTION
information. It also allows the port circuit microprocessor to inform the on-board
microprocessor of various port circuit status information.
The DUCK and TRIC interface I-channel information between the port circuit and the
remote data module. The microprocessor controls the operation of the DUCK and
the TRIC by programming their internal registers. The DUCK and TRIC together
recreate the clock and serial data stream from the remote data module, and process
an on-board clock and serial data stream for delivery to the remote data module.
Control information, handshaking, and RS-232 control leads is passed between the
port circuit microprocessor and the remote data module by the TRIC.
The USART interfaces the serial data stream of the DUCK to the conversion
microprocessor. The USART can be programmed by the microprocessor to operate
synchronously or asynchronously. The USART also does the following tasks for the
port circuit microprocessor:
— Appends start and stop bits to parallel data received from the microprocessor
in the asynchronous mode
— Converts serial data received from the DUCK to parallel data
— Buffers data in both directions
— Detects and generates break characters.
The DSP provides modem emulation. It interfaces the port circuit signal and the
remote modem. The microprocessor directs the DSP to execute one of many
programs. The DSP produces data, carrier detection, and timing information for the
port circuit microprocessor.
DS1 Interface (TN767)
The DS1 Interface Circuit Pack provides connection capability to a 1.544 Mbps DS1 facility.
This DS1 facility is able to provide a communication link for 24 separate and independent
trunks. Each trunk provides a 64 kbps data transmission service for a DS1 Voice Grade tie
trunk. The circuit pack can also provide bit-oriented signaling on a per trunk basis.
Supported trunks include; automatic, immediate-start, delay-dial, and release-link trunks. The
circuit pack performs robbed-bit signaling using CO, TIE, DID, or OPS signaling protocol in
any remaining ports on a per port basis. The following lead appearances are provided on
the circuit pack: LBACK2, LBACK1, LO, LO (high), LI, LI (high).
3-37
FUNCTIONAL DESCRIPTION
Software
The System software consists of switched services, administrative, and maintenance
software. This software runs on top of the real-time operating system software.
Switched Services Software
The switched services software provides voice and data call processing. This software
resides in the Common Control circuitry and in the 8-bit on-board microprocessors located in
the port and service circuits.
The switched services software uses the operating system to provide a process based,
message passing, execution environment. The operating system scheduler provides
scheduling for the software according to process priority.
Administrative Software
The administrative software provides the control for system rearrangement and change via
the System Administration Terminal (SAT). This software resides in the CPU/MEM Circuit
Pack and does the following functions:
●
Organizes the translation data for administrable entities in the system in a form that
can be viewed and changed at the System Administration Terminal.
●
Tests entered data for consistency with data previously entered in order to avoid
such errors as the assignment of the same extension number to two voice terminals.
An erroneous or inconsistent data entry is disallowed and an error message is
provided.
●
Causes the translation data to be downloaded, on command, to an optional Digital
Tape Unit (DTU).
Maintenance Software
The maintenance software provides automatic periodic testing of maintenance objects within
the system as well as consistency tests among the call status tables within the system. In
addition, demand testing is initiated when the system detects a condition requiring a need for
testing. Software tables are provided for storing error records. The records can be
accessed by maintenance personnel via the SAT. A Permanent System Alarm (a serious
error) causes an alarm indicator on the attendant console to light and an error record to be
stored in the error table.
3-38
FUNCTIONAL DESCRIPTION
Memory Allocation
The system software, like the hardware, is identified by release and version number. Each
version identifies a particular memory configuration for the release number. Main memory is
located in the Common Control circuitry, that is, the CPU/MEM Circuit Pack.
Real-Time Constraints
Real-time constraints are a function of the speed of the common control circuitry and the
traffic load. The switch is designed so that many time-consuming and repetitious functions
are performed by processors in the port and service circuit packs, thus relieving the common
control circuits.
Traffic load, defined as the sum of static and dynamic loads, is a function of the number of
features that are executed, the frequency with which they are executed, the system
configuration, and the instantaneous (peak) call processing load. The configuration
contribution to load is known as dynamic load. The static load consists of maintenance and
audit routines.
Software Partitioning
As shown in Figure 3-21, System 25 software is comprised of various modules, each
supporting a particular process. Typical modules (referred to as tasks) include the following:
●
Administration
●
Station Call Processing
●
Station Message Detail Recording (SMDR) Call Record Processing
●
Trunk Call Processing
●
Dial Plan Manager
●
Event Timer
●
Save/Restore (Administration function)
●
Maintenance and Audit Functions.
Specific software tasks are associated with the memory and call processing portions of the
CPU/MEM, the TDM Bus, and the Port Circuits.

System Software Partitioning
FUNCTIONAL DESCRIPTION
Memory
Administration and Feature Code Modules, which includes Station Call Processing, are
software tasks associated with memory. Each task controls the storage and movement of
data and messages between elements in the system.
●
Administration
Provides for administration of station and system features. This software also
supports maintenance procedures related to error checking and diagnosing trouble.
●
Feature Code Modules
Includes the software that receives and sends data to/from the Operating System, as
well as control of all voice and data features supported by the system. Station Call
Processing includes the processing of messages and data associated with voice
terminal on-hook/off-hook indications, associated port identifications, button and LED
operations, etc. The SMDR software generates SMDR records associated with a
particular call. The records are then sent to the System RAM for storage and then to
the SMDR output channel.
Call Processing
The following circuits support software tasks.
●
System RAM provides for the storage of the following:
— Variables for the various software tasks
— System translations
— Error Records
— Feature Code Data
— Stack.
●
Error Logger
Prioritizes and stores system errors; lights the Alarm LED on the Attendant Console
when a serious error is detected. The errors are stored in three error records in
System RAM:
— Permanent System Alarms
— Transient System Errors
— Most Recent System Errors.
3-41
FUNCTIONAL DESCRIPTION
●
Operating System (OS)
Controls all message and data flow to/from memory, to the Arch Angel Driver
Interface, to the microprocessors on the port circuit packs, and to the RS-232 driver
interfaces. Messages destined for a particular task are queued until the associated
task can receive them. When a task has completed a particular process, the next
message is obtained from the message queue of the tasks. The OS provides an
interval timer that is used to time tasks. Processes that exceed the set interval
(about 60 seconds) are terminated by the OS.
●
Arch Angel Driver Interface
Provides an interface between the OS and Network Control.
●
RS-232 Driver Interface
Handles the flow of information between the CPU/MEM CP and the peripheral
equipment of the system (i.e., System Administration Terminal or Advanced
Administration PC, Digital Tape Unit, and SMDR Output Device.)
TDM Bus
Provides an electronic link between the system port circuits (including System Resources)
and between the CPU/MEM and port circuits.
Port Circuit Packs
Each port circuit pack has on-board software that provides for the sending/receiving of
Network Control messages and data. Circuit pack status messages are also sent to the
Network Control software.
Step-By-Step Call Description
The following is a description of a call originated between two multiline voice terminals.
1. A microprocessor on a station port circuit pack (port controller) continually monitors
associated port circuits for switchhook status/change and button presses.
2. When a user goes off-hook, the port controller detects the change.
3. The port controller sends an off-hook up-link message along with port identification
to the Call Processor Network Controller (CPNC) via the TDM bus.
4. The CPNC accepts the message and forwards it to the Operating System (OS) via
the Arch Angel Driver Interface.
3-42
FUNCTIONAL DESCRIPTION
5.
The OS checks a message directory to determine which task (i.e., software module)
is to receive the message. A function of the OS referred to as the “transformer”
determines it has a message for the Station Call Processing task and queues the
message in RAM.
6.
The Station Call Processing task retrieves its message and interprets it as a call
origination. The task determines whether there is an idle call appearance button
(System Access button) on the called voice terminal. If so, two available time slots
are reserved for the connection.
7.
The task sends downlink messages to the port circuit via the OS. The messages
instruct the port circuit to listen for dial tone on a specified time slot and to light the
call appearance status LED on the terminal.
8.
When the user dials the first digit, the port circuit determines the digit dialed. It then
listens to appropriate time slots on the TDM bus for the two tones used to generate
an equivalent DTMF signal. It then removes dial tone and feeds the DTMF signal
back to the user until the user releases the button.
9.
The port circuit sends an up-link message with each digit dialed to the OS that routes
them to the Dial Plan Manager (DPM).
10.
The DPM collects the dialed digits and determines that the call is a station-to-station
call.
11.
When the DPM collects enough digits to identify an extension number it stops
collecting digits.
Note:
If the extension number dialed is invalid, the DPM sends a down-link
message to the port circuit instructing it to listen to time slot 07
(Reorder Tone) that is then heard by the user. Go to Step 18.
12.
A down-link message is sent to the originating port instructing it to listen to time slot
06 (busy) or 08 (ringing), as appropriate. Go to Step 18 for Busy Tone or an
unanswered call.
13.
Station Call Processing sends a down-link message to the station port circuit pack
associated with the called extension to turn on the ringer of the terminal, and to flash
the call appearance LED.
14.
When the called party lifts the receiver, the associated port circuit pack controller
sends a off-hook message to the OS as before.
15.
The Station Call Processing task, when it receives the message interprets the offhook message as an answer.
16.
The task sends a down-link message to the called port circuit to turn off the ringer
and to change the flashing LED to steadily lighted.
17.
Down-link messages are sent to the port circuits assigning talk and listen time slots
for the connection.
3-43
FUNCTIONAL DESCRIPTION
18. When either of the parties hangs up, the associated port circuit controller sends an
up-link message to the Station Call Processing task.
19. Station Call Processing interprets the on-hook message as the end of the call.
20. The task then sends a down-link message to the port circuit pack controllers to
disconnect the time slot connections and turn off the LEDs associated with the calls.

covered in Section 2 is also described there; such equipment is noted in this
Hardware Description section, with a reference to the appropriate heading in
Section 2.
All system hardware, except Cabinet 1 equipped with a CPU/MEM, Service Circuit, and
associated cables, is optional.
A listing of Product Element Codes (PECs), Apparatus Codes, and Comcodes is provided in
Section 7, “Parts Information.”
System Cabinets (J58901A1 L4)
The system can consist of one, two, or three cabinets (Figure 4-1). Each cabinet contains its
own power supply and cooling system. A CP carrier frame is integrated into each cabinet.
Depending on the circuit pack complement, the cabinet/circuit pack configuration is as
follows:
●
●
Cabinet 1 (always required)—Contains the CPU/MEM CP and the Service Circuit of
the system and can also contain up to ten port CPs.
Cabinet 2 or 3 (optional)— Provides mounting for up to 12 port CPs each.
The CPs receive power, control signals, and data via the backplane bus of the carrier and
associated 25-pair connector interfaces. In multiple cabinet systems, the backplane buses
are linked with a bus extender cable (J58901A4 L3).
4-1
HARDWARE DESCRIPTION
The cabinets have a brown front cover with beige top and sides. The front cover has a
system identification stripe across the top. The top has four indentations to facilitate the
stacking of cabinets.
Each cabinet is constructed of sheet metal and is 13 inches high, 17 inches wide, and 21
inches deep and weighs about 75 pounds fully loaded. A 3-cabinet system occupies a
vertical space of about 40 inches. It is recommended that the cabinets be placed on a deskor table-top. They must not be placed on a floor where cleaning solutions and dirt can get
into them. Refer to Section 6, “Environmental Requirements” for equipment area
considerations and associated floor plan recommendations.
The front cover of the cabinet is secured by four screws. These screws must be loosened
slightly before the cover can be removed. When the cover is removed, access is provided to
the CPs, a replaceable air filter mounted just under the CP carrier frame, and two cooling
fans. The cooling fans are mounted on an assembly that, when unscrewed, provides access
to the power supply. Air intake is at the bottom of the cabinet and exhaust is vented at the
left side of the front cover.
Each cabinet has its own power supply mounted to the left of the CP carrier. The power
supply is 3 inches wide and weighs about 9 pounds. Voltage and current supplied to the
carrier are: +5 V dc at 35A, -5 V dc at 3A, -48 V dc at 3A, and 90 V ac at 0.16A.
On the front of the supply is a green Light-Emitting Diode (LED) that, when lighted, indicates
that the +5 V dc is available and within limits. The LED can be viewed through the slotted
area on the front cover, and is just behind the fan located at the top left edge of the cabinet.
Mounted on the back of the cabinet (Figure 4-2) is the aluminum grounding block with four
terminating positions, an ac input power receptacle, a power On/Off switch [(1)=ON,
(0)=OFF] and twelve 25-pair connectors. The ground block is connected to dc ground on the
carrier backplane at a location near the power supply. The 25-pair connectors provide an
interface between cross-connect wiring and the CPs immediately behind each connector.
Two slots are provided in the rear cover just above the 25-pair connectors for the Time
Division Multiplex (TDM) bus extender cable. The TDM cable is used to connect 2- or 3cabinet systems in a daisy-chain configuration and provides control and data signals
between cabinets. The Cabinet 1 ground block is connected to the single-point ground of
the system using 6 AWG wire. Separate 6 AWG wires are then connected from the Cabinet
1 ground block to Cabinets 2 and 3 ground blocks. The Cabinet 1 ground block is also
connected to the Coupled Bonding Conductor. An information label is provided across the
top portion of the rear panel on each cabinet. The label provides cabinet identification, input
electrical requirements, caution and warning notes, and FCC, CSA, and UL labels.

Cabinet 1 (Control and Port Circuits)
Cabinet 1 (Figure 4-3) is always required. It provides mounting space for 12 CPs and can
support a small telecommunications system (for example, 50 to 60 stations and 10 to 15
trunks.)
Cabinet 1 contains the CPU/MEM CP and the Service Circuit, which must be mounted in CP
slots 1 and 2, respectively. Slots 3 through 12 (ten total) provide mounting for the various
port CPs that can be used. Any port CP can be mounted in any of these ten slots.
The Tone Detector and Pooled Modem CPs (referred to as System Resource CPs) can also
be mounted in the port CP slots. Circuit packs are described in this Section under the
heading “Circuit Packs”.
Cabinets 2 and 3 (Port Circuits)
Cabinet 2 and Cabinet 3 (Figure 4-3) can be added to provide mounting space for additional
port CPs (12 maximum each) required for larger systems. The Tone Detector and Pooled
Modem CPs can also be mounted in these cabinets. These cabinets are simply stacked on
top of Cabinet 1. Table 4-A summarizes port CP capacity of 1-, 2-, or 3-cabinet systems.

HARDWARE DESCRIPTION
Single-Line Voice Terminals
Single-line terminals can have only one incoming call ringing when the terminal is idle. The
user at any busy single-line terminal can put an active call on hold and either originate a call
or answer a waiting/camped-on call. Single-line terminals have access to most system
features that do not require operation of programmable buttons.
All voice and control information between single-line terminals and the system digital switch
is transmitted in analog form on tip and ring pairs of wire (one pair per terminal). Port
circuits (ZTN78 Tip Ring Line CP or TN742 Analog Line CP) in the switch provide
analog/digital conversion. Power for terminals is also sent from the switch on the tip and ring
pairs. The pushbutton dials on single-line sets (except for the 500 Series) are touch-tone
pads, which generate Dual Tone Multifrequency (DTMF) signals. The rotary 500 sets
generate dial pulses.
The following subsections provide descriptions and illustrations of the single-line voice
terminals supported by System 25.
500 Series
The Model 500 Series consists of conventional rotary dial telephones. They are
recommended for use as a Power Failure Transfer (PFT) stations if the PFT trunk does not
support touch-tone dialing. A KS 23566,L1 Ground Start button must be used with these
sets if the PFT trunk is ground start. Rotary set users cannot do any procedures that require
pressing the ✶ or # buttons. The following 500 Series sets are supported by System 25;

HARDWARE DESCRIPTION
Multiline Voice Terminals
The recommended multiline terminals for System 25 is the ATL cordless telephone and the
7300H Series hybrid sets that are also used with the MERLIN Communications System.
Multibutton Electronic Telephone (MET) sets already available to the customer can be reused
in a System 25 installation but are not orderable.
Multiline voice terminals have programmable buttons that can be assigned for handling calls
and for controlling features. Many of these buttons are supported by red I-Use and green
status indicators (LEDs) that provide users with information about calls and features. Fixed
(non-programmable) feature buttons allow users to control standard features such as Hold,
Conference (except ATL cordless), and Transfer.
Multiline terminals can have several calls active at the same time depending on the number
of buttons programmed for placing and receiving calls. For example, the user can be talking
on one call, have one or more calls on hold, and still receive ringing on incoming calls.
Transmission to and from the terminals is hybrid: an analog pair for voice and two digital
pairs for control signals. Port circuits (ZTN79 ATL Line CP for MERLIN System and ATL
cordless sets and TN735 MET Line CP for MET sets) provide interface between the terminals
and the digital switch.
The pushbutton dials on MERLIN System terminals and ATL cordless telephones are not
touch-tone; they send digital signals to the system switch and are referred to in terminal
descriptions as a touch dial pads. MET sets have touch-tone (DTMF) dials.
The following subsections provide descriptions and illustrations of the multiline voice
terminals supported by System 25.

HARDWARE DESCRIPTION
Asynchronous Data Units (ADUs)
Asynchronous Data Units and Multiple Asynchronous Data Units (MADUs) provide an
interface between ports on the TN726 Data Line CP and RS-232 Data Terminal Equipment
(DTE) or Data Communications Equipment (DCE). The DTE is equipment that provides a
data source, termination, or both—a host computer, printer, or a data terminal are examples
of DTE. The DCE is equipment that provides the functions required to establish, maintain,
and terminate data communications—modems are the most common DCE.
The Z3A series of ADUs (Figure 4-23 and 4-37) are DCE that allow a direct connection
between DTE and port circuits on the Data Line CP (TN726). To connect an ADU to DCE, a
cross-over cable (“null modem”) is required (PEC 2724-30C).
The modular jack labeled “Wall” connects the ADU to the building wiring with a standard 4pair modular cord. The 400B2 Adapter can be used to provide supplemental ac power for
the ADU and is bridged at the wall jack if required (Z3A1, 2, and 4 units only).
The modular jack labeled “Telephone” allows a voice terminal to be attached to the ADU.
Separate wire pairs from the telephone to the system cabinets are provided in a single 4-pair
cable run back to the SIP. The pairs separate at the SIP for connection to voice and data
ports.
The Z3A series of ADUs measure about 4.5 inches in length, 2 inches wide, and 1 inch high.
The ADUs available are shown in Table 4-G.
The Z3A ADUs should be installed only on “inside” facilities; they are not designed to be
used with CO cables or with exposed outside wiring (such as aerial cables).
The Z3A series of ADUs offer the following features:
●
Provide an interface to the digital switch from RS-232 devices.
●
Increases the distance RS-232 signals can travel over standard twisted-pair wiring.
Refer to Section 5, “Technical Specification” for distance limitations.
●
Data and control signals can be transmitted 2,000 feet in asynchronous full-duplex
mode at speeds up to 19,200 bps. The transmission speed automatically matches
that of the attached RS-232 device.
●
The dc isolation via opto-couplers ensures high noise immunity, resulting in very low
error rates.
●
A variety of Z3As with different connectors allows easy connection to RS-232
terminals, printers, and host computers (see Table 4-G).
●
Most Z3As can be powered from the RS-232 interface. The ADU requires 7 volts on
pin 20 (DTR) to operate properly. If the RS-232 equipment cannot meet this
requirement, a low-voltage power transformer and adapter(s) must be connected.
Z3A5 ADUs always require supplemental power.

HARDWARE DESCRIPTION
●
An analog single-line voice terminal (2500 or 7100 series) or a 7300H series multiline
voice terminal (Z3A5 ADU required) can be connected to the ADU, allowing the voice
terminal and DTE to share a common wall jack and 4-pair cable run back to the SIP.
Note:
Neither off-premises nor out-of-building service can be provided with ADUs.
For additional information on ADUs, see Z3A Asynchronous Data Unit User Manual (555-401701).

with System 25.
Uninterruptible Power Supply
The AT&T 1KVA Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) Model 010U111 PEC 2403-004 is
recommended. At maximum load the UPS will bridge a 5-minute power outage. The UPS
must be connected to the common System 25 power outlet. One UPS will support a 2cabinet system.
AC Power Line Surge Suppressor
The TII Model 428 Self-Restoring Power Line Surge Suppressor (PEC 8310-001, Comcode
402988950) protects against electrical surges, spikes, and transients that can cause damage
to the System 25 power supply. A pilot light indicates that full protection is present. The unit
plugs directly into a standard 120-volt 15-amp grounded outlet, providing a dual outlet for
protected equipment.
346 Modular Bulk Power Supply
The 346 Modular Bulk Power Supply (346 MBPS) is a cost effective and flexible alternative to
the KS-22911 power supply. The 346 MBPS can be used where the wall outlet mounted
KS-22911 cannot be used (Canada) or where multiple KS units are required. The 346 MBPS
consists of the 346A Power Unit (346A PU) and the 346A1 Power Panel; that is the sole
method of mounting the power units. Up to three 346A PUs can be mounted per power
panel. Each PU is capable of powering 4 terminals with adjuncts, for a total of 12 terminals
per full MBPS. The 346 MBPS is intended to be installed in a closet and should be near the
terminals (within 260 feet). All connections are modular and are made with cords and
adapters at the 858A Adapter on the SIP. Terminals and Selector Consoles can be powered
by the 346 MBPS.

HARDWARE DESCRIPTION
Connectivity
System 25 requires 4-pair building wiring that conforms to AT&T Premises Distribution
System (PDS) specifications. Various cords, cables, adapters, and connecting blocks are
used to facilitate the connection of equipment and associated cable and wire.
Major points of connectivity include the following:
●
The system cross-connect field located on a wall adjacent to the system cabinets.
The field provides mounting space for the Trunk Access Equipment (TAE), Station
Interconnect Panels (SIPs), and Emergency Transfer Units (ETUs).
Refer to Section 5, “Environmental Requirements” for a typical System 25 layout
including cross-connect field and associated equipment layout.
●
25-pair connectors located on the rear of each system cabinet.
●
Modular jacks located at each work station provide modular connections for
terminals and associated adjuncts and auxiliary equipment. These jacks are
connected by building wiring to the SIP. Several wiring options are described below
Wiring Options: There are three basic PECs under which building (station) wiring is ordered:
●
PEC 2781-004 covers wiring done on an hourly rate.
●
PEC 2782-004 covers flat rate wiring.
●
PEC 2783-004 covers firm price quote
Consult the 2780 section of the Sales Manual for restrictions and requirements before
ordering.
Trunk Access Equipment (TAE)
The TAE (Figure 4-24) provides for the connection of communications facilities such as Tie,
OPS, Ground Start, Loop Start, and DID trunks to the trunk ports of the system. Up to three
trunk CPs (except Tie Trunk CPs) can be connected to a 3-way splitter cable (PEC 2720-06X)
that concentrates the CP interfaces into one 25-pair cable. Up to two Tie Trunk CPs can be
connected to a 2-way splitter cable (PEC 2720-05X) that concentrates the CP interfaces into
one 25-pair cable. Each splitter cable connects to an interface block at the TAE.
Cables are either cut down or plugged into the TAE blocks. The other end of the cables plug
into the telephone company provided network interfaces (RJ21X or RJ2GX). Trunks and tie
lines are cut down by the telephone company at the network interface.
700A or 157B Blocks are usually used for the TAE connections (furnished by the installer).

HARDWARE DESCRIPTION
Station Interconnect Panel (SIP)
The Station Interconnect Panel (SIP) provides for the connection of the terminals (voice and
data), peripheral equipment, and some auxiliary equipment of the system to station port CPS.
This equipment includes voice terminals, attendant consoles, data terminals, System
Administration Terminal, Digital Tape Unit, and Call Accounting System. The SIP is made up
of 617A Panels and associated adapters.
617A Panel
The 617A Panel (Figure 4-25) is a metal plate with keyslot holes on each side for mounting
on a backboard. Each 617A Panel can hold eight Z210A1 or 858A Adapters, each of which
can accommodate six connections to the port circuits in the cabinets. As many as five 617A
Panels can be required for a maximum size system. The adapters snap into prepunched
holes on the 617A Panels. (Reattached spacer buttons keep adapters from touching the
metal panels.)
The cable rings located at the top of the 617A Panel route the building wiring cables to the
adapters. Purse lock clips hold the building wiring cables in place. The white posts at the
bottom of the 617A Panel guide the wiring from the 50A Fanning Strip to each column of
adapters.
Preprinted boxes and numbers on the panel identify modular jacks for recordkeeping
purposes. Letters are marked on the boxes at the top of each column by the installer. The
letter (A-J) and the corresponding preprinted row number (1-24) identify the port jacks. For
example, A1 identifies the modular jack located in column A row 1.
Adapters
Adapters that mount on the panel connect the following:
●
Building wire runs terminated in modular jacks, 25-pair connectors, or unterminated.
●
Cables from the system cabinets terminated in modular jacks or 25-pair connectors.
The following adapters can be mounted on the 617A panel:
●
Z210A—Six 4-pair modular jacks to six 4-pair modular jacks. One required per six
voice terminals. Connects to building wiring terminated in modular plugs.
●
858A—Six 4-pair modular jacks to six 110-type cut-down blocks. One required per
six voice terminals. Connects to unterminated building wiring.
The SIP equipment is furnished by the installer.

HARDWARE DESCRIPTION
Connectivity Figures
Figures 4-27 through 4-37 provide connection information for various equipment. These
figures have been included as an aid to understanding how equipment can be connected to
System 25 and to indicate required connecting and supporting equipment. Other
arrangements are possible; these figures can be useful in developing connecting
arrangements for new or customer-provided equipment.
The PEC codes have been noted on the figures, as have indications of the source for
obtaining non-PEC equipment (for example, from installer or furnished with other equipment).
This information can be of use to Account Executives and Technical Consultants who are
adding equipment to existing installations. For new installations, the DOSS Configurator must
be used to select equipment requirements. For existing installations, you will need to
determine what equipment is already installed. You should not order equipment directly using
the PECs in these figures. The octopus cable (PEC 2720-05P), for example, supports eight
terminals; you do not order one per terminal.
A list of related PECs, Apparatus, and Comcodes is provided in Section 7. Be sure to check
the Sales Manual and/or DOSS before ordering since this information changes frequently.
Symbols Used in Figures: Modular jacks are shown by the triangle symbol. The 25-pair
connectors are indicated by shaded blocks. Generally, only one leg of an octopus cable is
shown. Unterminated wiring requiring cut down or other termination do not have symbol
designations. The 103A Connecting Block is a typical modular wall jack that provides cutdown connections for building (station) wiring.
Voice Terminal and Adjunct Connections
Figures 4-27 through Figure 4-33 provide connection information for single-line and multiline
voice terminals. The single-line terminals can be located on-premises, off-premises, or outof-building. The MERLIN System multiline voice terminals can be used for out-of-building
service but must be within 2000 feet of the system cabinets (local power is required beyond
1000 feet for in-building sets and for all out-of-building sets). Off-premises service is not
available.
Diagrams for voice terminal adjunct connections are included with the specific feature
descriptions in Section 2.
Attendant Console Connections
Diagrams for attendant console connections are included in the “Attendant Console”
descriptions in Section 2.

Equipment not listed above (i.e., TN763, ZTN76, ZTN77) does not affect unit loading. Any voice
terminal adjunct combination requiring more than 2 Unit Loads must be locally powered. When
a voice terminal is locally powered, it places no unit load on the cabinet. Specifically, a 34-Button
Deluxe voice terminal equipped for speakerphone operation requires auxiliary power. In addition,
any 22- or 34-Button Deluxe, BIS, or BIS with Display voice terminal equipped for headset
operation requires auxiliary power.

RS-232 device must furnish
signals on ADU pins 2 (TD)
and 20 (DTR) and ground on
either pin 1 or 7. The ADU
furnishes signals on pins 3
(RD) and 8 (CD). The CD
signal is also tied to pins 5
(CTS) and 6 (DSR). Some
data terminals may require
auxiliary power when used
with a Z3A1, Z3A2, or Z3A4
ADU (the Z3A5 always
requires local power). ADUs
require 7 volts on pin 20 (DTR)
to operate properly. The
following table lists data
terminals that have been
tested and are known to
operate properly without
auxiliary power.

ENVIRONMENTAL REQUIREMENTS
This section provides information on floor and wall space requirements for System 25
cabinets and associated peripheral equipment. Also included are specifications for
temperature, humidity, air purity, lighting, electrical noise (RFI) suppression, power,
grounding, and lightning protection.
Floor Plans And Layouts
Floor plan arrangements will vary depending on the available equipment area and anticipated
system growth. A typical floor plan is shown in Figure 6-1.
The floor must be tiled or suitably sealed, level, and free from vibration. Allow for a minimum
unobstructed clearance of 7 feet above the floor throughout the equipment area.
Do not locate the equipment in areas:
●
Where it might be subjected to excessive vibrations or disturbed by moving
equipment such as hand trucks and transporters.
●
Where noise levels may exceed 90 dB.
●
Susceptible to flooding.
Maintain clear access to the equipment area for both installation and maintenance purposes.
The wall behind the system cabinet must be clear of all objects (pictures, shelves, or
windows) that might interfere with system installation. The entire area behind the cabinet
and to the side as shown on Figure 6-2 must be reserved for the cross-connect field and
cable access. Also, room for system growth should be considered.

Table Top Space
The following system equipment requires (customer provided) table top space in the
equipment area:
●
System Cabinets: Each cabinet is 13 inches high, 17 inches wide, and 21 inches
deep. A 3-cabinet system requires a vertical space of approximately 40 inches and a
17-inch by 21-inch table top space. Each cabinet weighs approximately 75 pounds.
Place the cabinets on a desk or table top that is about 18 inches high and capable of
supporting at least 250 pounds. The cabinets must not be placed on the floor.
●
System Administration Terminal (SAT) Model 703: The SAT should also be located
near the system cabinets and plugged into the same AC outlet. It is 12 inches wide,
10 inches long, and 3 inches high.
●
Digital Tape Unit: The Tape Unit (Model DC5 Digital Data Recorder) should also be
located near the system cabinets. It is 5 inches wide, 2 inches high, and 10 inches
long.
●
SMDR or Call Accounting System (CAS): The AT&T Model 572 printer used with
SMDR is approximately 16 inches wide, 12 inches long, and 6 inches high. The CAS
runs on the AT&T PC 6300. The printer and the PC should also be located near the
system cabinets.
Wall Space Requirements
The customer-provided backboard for the cross-connect field should be approximately 3/4
inch thick, 4 feet high, and 8 feet wide. Mount the board 30 inches above the floor. The
board must conform to national and local fire safety codes.
If existing cross-connect hardware is reused, the space requirements and hardware
requirements must be shown on the floor plan. Contact your AT&T Technical Consultant for
assistance in planning for reuse of existing equipment.
Temperature and Humidity
The System 25 equipment should be installed in a well-ventilated area. The equipment must
be located in an area with an ambient temperature between 40 degrees and 104 degrees
Fahrenheit (5 and 40 degrees Celsius). The relative humidity must be less than 95%,
noncondensing. These parameters should be maintained 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

ENVIRONMENTAL REQUIREMENTS
Air Purity
The cabinet should not be installed in an area where the air may be contaminated with any of
the following:
lint, carbon particles,
●
Excessive dust,
contaminants
●
Contaminants expelled by office copying machines
●
Highly corrosive atmosphere within an enclosed area or atmosphere containing
vaporized chemical compounds that may condense on the equipment
●
Explosive or flammable atmosphere.
paper fiber contaminants, or metallic
Lighting
Lighting should be adequate to allow administration and maintenance personnel to perform
their tasks. The recommended light intensity level is 50 to 70 footcandles. This level
complies with the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA) standards.
Electrical Noise/Radio-Frequency Interference (RFI)
In most cases, electrical noise is introduced to the system through trunk or voice terminal
cables. However, electromagnetic fields near the system cabinets may also induce noise in
the system. Therefore, the system cabinets and cable runs should not be placed in areas
where a high electromagnetic field strength exists. Radio transmitters (AM or FM), television
stations, induction heaters, motors (with commutators) of 0.25 horsepower (200 watts) or
greater, and similar equipment are leading causes of interference. Small tools with universal
motors are generally not a problem when they operate on separate power lines. Motors
without commutators generally do not cause interference.
Field strengths below 1.0 volt per meter are unlikely to cause interference. Field strength
can be measured by a tunable meter such as the Model R-70 meter manufactured by
Electro-Metrics Division or broadband meters such as the HOLADAY* HI-3001 meter or
Model EFS-1 meter manufactured by Instruments for Industry, Inc.
The field strength produced by radio transmitters can be estimated by dividing the square
root of the emitted power in kilowatts by the distance from the antenna in kilometers. This
yields the approximate field strength in volts per meter and is relatively accurate for
distances greater than about half a wavelength (150 meters for a frequency of 1000 KHz).

Environmental Considerations for ATL Cordless Telephone Set
The ATL Cordless telephone set uses standard radio transmission technology to pass
communications between the handset and the base. This radio transmission is susceptible
to Radio Frequency Interference as explained on the previous page.
The ATL Cordless Telephone performs best when it is operated in an area free of the
following devices and materials:
●
●
Metals (including steel, aluminum, etc. )
—
metal reinforced ceilings
—
metal window frames
—
concrete reinforced with metal
—
sheet metal walls
—
steel I-beams
—
metal studs in walls
—
screens and fences.
Some solid structures, such as:
— moist concrete walls
— brick walls
— steel reinforced concrete walls.
●
Computing equipment (devices equipped with a microprocessor)
— personal computers
— facsimile machines
— communication system control units
— uninterruptible power supplies (UPS)
— copier machines.
●
6-6
Electromagnetic
sources
—
industrial machinery
—
electric motors.
ENVIRONMENTAL REQUIREMENTS
The base should be located at least; three feet away from any metal object (such as metal
window frames), six feet away from any computing equipment, and six feet (20 feet for
minimum interference) away from electromagnetic sources. Avoid using the handset in areas
with metal objects in the line of sight between the handset and the base.
If RFI is experienced while using the set, moving the base to a different location can
significantly increase the range. Moving the base to a higher level, perhaps to a different
floor, moving it near a window (if the handset is used outside), or even moving the base a
couple of feet can significantly improve the transmission range.
6-7
ENVIRONMENTAL REQUIREMENTS
AC Power Requirements
Each System 25 cabinet requires 500 Watts at 115V ac (maximum).
The System 25 power service must be a dedicated branch circuit with no other equipment
served (see Figure 6-3). The customer should provide a load center of appropriate current
rating (ITE EQ4 typical) equipped with 120V ac, 15 ampere (AMP), single pole magnetic
circuit breaker(s) (ITE QP1-BO15 typical). Each breaker is to protect 2 associated wall
mounted 115 V ac, 15 AMP, receptacles (HUBBELL 5262 typical). Grounding of this load
center is to be provided by a “Green Wire” ground extended from the grounding electrode
conductor at the AC service entrance to the load center.
The following materials are required:
●
Single Cabinet System
1 - 15 AMP 3 Wire Dedicated Branch Service
1 - 4" Box (RACO 230 or Equiv.)
1 - 4" Cover (RACO 807 or Equiv.)
1 - Ground Bar (Square D PK9GTA or Equiv.)
2 - Recpt. (Hubbell 5262 15 AMP or Equiv.)
●
Multiple Cabinet System
2 - 15 AMP 3 Wire Dedicated Branch Service
2 - 4" Box (RACO 230 or Equiv.)
2 - 4" Cover (RACO 807 or Equiv.)
1 - Ground Bar (Square D PK9GTA or Equiv.)
4 - Recpt. (Hubbell 5262 15 AMP or Equiv.)
Typically, multiple cabinet systems can be powered from a single phase 120V ac, 60 Hertz
service (two 15-amp circuits required). There are no phase restrictions between cabinets.
Therefore, the two 15-amp circuits required may be derived from single or three-phase
service.
The receptacles should be located at least 1 foot above the floor. Receptacles should not be
located further than 4 feet from the cabinets.
DANGER
Under no circumstances should this equipment
be connected to 220V ac; doing so poses a
serious fire hazard.

ENVIRONMENTAL REQUIREMENTS
Grounding
Connection of an approved ground to the system cabinets is essential. An approved ground
may consist of any of the following:
●
Grounded Building Steel —The metal frame of the building.
●
Water Pipe— A continuous metal water pipe, not less than 1/2 inch diameter, that is
connected to an underground metal water pipe that is in direct contact with earth for
10 feet or more.
●
●
Concrete-Encased Ground— An electrode encased by at least 2 inches of concrete
and located within and near the bottom of a concrete foundation or footing in direct
contact with the earth. The foundation must consist of at least 20 feet of one or
more steel reinforcing bars or rods of not less than 1/2 inch diameter, or at least 20
feet of bare, solid copper wire no smaller than No. 4 gauge.
Ground Ring —A ring that encircles a building or structure in direct contact with earth
at a depth of at least 2-1/2 feet. The ring must consist of at least 20 feet of bare
copper conductor no smaller than No. 2 gauge.
Lightning Protection
The System 25 lightning protections plan requires five distinct but interdependent items at
each installation:
●
Primary protection in the form of voltage limiters (typically carbon blocks or gas
tubes). These devices bypass surges to approved building ground and limit potential
differences between T/R pairs and building ground to less than 1500 volts.
●
A single-point ground (SPG) system that connects green wire ground, System 25
system ground, and telephone company (TelCo) ground together and to approved
building ground (Figure 6-3).
●
Coupled bonding conductor (CBC) connected between the TelCo ground at the
building entrance and System 25’s SPG.
CBC is tie-wrapped to all trunks to provide lightning protection; it can be a 16-gauge
ground wire or continuous cable sheath. The CBC should also be run from the
TelCo-provided network interface to the ground block of cabinet 1 (see Figure 3-4 in
the “Functional Description” section). If the TelCo has not extended the CBC from
the facility entrance to the network interface, the installer should run the CBC along
the same route as the incoming facilities where feasible.
●
6-10
Secondary protection provided within TN742 and all trunk CPs; such ports can
withstand 800 volt metallic (differential) and 1500 volt longitudinal (common mode)
surges.
ENVIRONMENTAL REQUIREMENTS
●
Surge protection on the AC power to System 25 and associated equipment (SAT,
SMDR, DTU, etc.) provided by the TII 428 Unit.
The protection outlined above is adequate for more than 99 percent of all lightning strikes.
For the few remaining cases, external secondary protection, located at the trunk access area
of the cross-connect field, can be employed. Several commercially available units can be
used. If 66-type block terminations are used, a very convenient device is the LP3-230-220
Fused Lightning Protector manufactured by ITW-LINX, 195 Algonquin Road, Des Plaines,
Illinois 60016. This unit plugs into the 66-block (in place of the shorting bars) and includes
the sneak current fuse. One unit is required per protected pair. A ground bar is provided
with the lightning protection units or can be ordered separately (Comcode 901007120). Porta
Systems is another supplier of surge protection devices. Regardless of the type installed, all
lightning protectors located in the cross-connect area must be grounded to System 25’s SPG
via a No. 6 AWG copper wire.
Transmission facilities (voice pairs) that extend out-of-building and are not included in the
network interface may be installed by the TelCo or through other means (for example, by the
building owner and/or the property owner). These facilities, aerial or buried, must be
protected with voltage limiting devices and sneak current fuses. The only exception to this
rule is buried cable less than 140 feet long that is enclosed in a continuous metallic conduit
from one building entrance to the other. The conduit must be connected to an approved
building ground at each end.
If single-line sets are extended out-of-building, primary protection devices for voice pairs
should be used. If MERLIN Communications System voice terminals are extended out-ofbuilding, the facilities must be protected with the TII Model 341 (PEC 32918, Comcode
403865785) at each end. Terminals J1-3 and J1-6 of the Model 341 should not be
connected. Maximum distance between a MERLIN System voice terminal and the System 25
cabinet is 2000 feet. There is no limit on how much of the 2000 feet can be out-of-building.
However, out-of-building stations cannot be powered over the line; they must be powered
locally using PEC 62510.

GLOSSARY
Data Endpoint
Two general groups: those having a DTE-type interface, which encompasses almost all of
the data terminal devices; and the group of DCE interface devices which are primarily
modems. However, it must be noted that within each category, control interfaces may also
vary. Refer to Analog Data Endpoint and Digital Data Endpoints for additional information.
Data Module
A data interface device (i.e., Asynchronous Data Unit) providing a standard interface
between customer-provided data equipment and a data port on the switch.
Data Terminal Equipment (DTE)
DTE refers to a specific RS-232C connector termination designed to connect directly to a
DCE-type connection. Typically associated with video display terminals, printers, and
computers which either originate or terminate a data transmission path.
Data Terminals
Refers to RS-232C-compatible Data Terminal Equipment.
Delay-Dial Tie Trunk
After a request for service (called a seizure) is detected on an incoming trunk, the system
sends a momentary signal followed by a steady tone over the trunk. This informs the calling
party that dialing can start. This type of trunk allows dialing directly into the system. That is,
the digits are received as they are dialed.
Digital Data Endpoints
In System 25, digital data endpoints include any digital device providing an RS-232C
connection interface to the switch. The connection is via Asynchronous Data Units (ADUs)
to the switch.
Direct Extension Selector (DXS) Console
An option at the attendant console that allows an attendant direct access to voice terminals
by pressing a Group Select button and a DXS button.
EIA: (Electronics Industries Association)
ESF

other than its local central office.
Foreign Numbering Plan Area Code (FNPA)
An area code other than the local area code; also known as the “other area code.”
The foreign area code must be dialed to call outside the local geographical area.
Frame Slip
A slip is the deletion or repetition of a frame. Slips are caused by differences in clock
frequencies. Generally, a slip involving the synchronization will result in most or all
spans experiencing misframes. Slips are not caused by noise on the transmission
line.
Framing
Framing is the process of segmenting and identifying the information carried on a
digital facility.
Ground-Start Trunk
On outgoing calls, System 25 transmits a request for services to the distant switching
system by grounding the trunk ring lead. When the distant system is ready to receive
the digits of the called number, that system grounds the trunk tip lead. When the
System 25 detects this ground, the digits are sent. (Tip and ring are common
nomenclature to differentiate between ground-start trunk leads.) On incoming calls,
detection of ground on the tip lead is sufficient to cause the call to route to a
predetermined destination, normally the system attendant group. No digits are
received.
HFAI: (Hands-Free Answer on Intercom)
Home Numbering Plan Area Code (HNPA)
The local area code; also known as the “home area code.” The local area code does
not have to be dialed to call numbers within the local geographical area.
9-8
GLOSSARY
Immediate-Start Tie Trunk
After establishing a connection with the distant switching system for an outgoing call, the
system waits a nominal 65 milliseconds before sending the digits of the called number. This
allows time for the distant system to prepare to receive the digits. Similarly, on an incoming
call, the system has less than 65 milliseconds to prepare to receive the digits.
Inside Call

GLOSSARY
Loop Start Trunk
After establishing a connection with the distant switching system for an outgoing call,
System 25 waits for a short period of time before sending the digits of the called number.
