Introduction
The 4059 IP also called SBC (Screen Based Console), is integrated into the Alcatel-Lucent
OmniPCX Enterprise Communication Server. This application provides the maximum level of
comfort and user friendliness. It is used when there is just a single attendant set for a system.
It may also form part of a team of attendants when telephone requirements mean that several
dedicated sets are necessary.
The Alcatel-Lucent 4059 IP can be set up in one of the two configurations:
-
an IP configuration using the IP network, where the terminal is referred to as
Alcatel-Lucent 4059 IP and the attendant set is an Alcatel-Lucent 8 series set.
-
a mixed IP configuration using the TDM and IP network, where the terminal is referred to
as Alcatel-Lucent 4059 IP and the attendant set is an Alcatel-Lucent 9 series set.
The Alcatel-Lucent 4059 IP is used to optimize call management: to reply to and easily direct
incoming calls, to manage internal calls and, if necessary, to connect internal sets to recipients
outside the system.
This console also allows the attendant to take some responsibility for system management.
The following operations, among others, are available to the attendant:
-
Switching over the system from standard operation to a status configured for reduced
activity (at night, for example)
-
Reserving external lines for a specific use
-
Controlling the use of internal and external lines by the users
-
Selecting automatic connection of calls
-
Programming the date and time of the system, the checking of call costs, etc.
You are advised to read this user manual before using the console.
1.2
System Architecture
All attendants must be part of an attendant group, consisting of up to 50 attendant
sets/consoles (the maximum number of attendants in an attendant group depends on the
product software version).
The attendants within a group can use different sets/consoles, but all the terminals of the
group must be on the same node and the same IP network. An attendant terminal can only
belong to one group.
The 4059 IP application runs on a PC with one of the following operating systems:
-
Microsoft Windows XP Professional SP2 (minimum)
-
Windows Vista (as of release 5.1.0)
-
Windows 7 (as of release 5.2.3)
The 4059 IP application environment includes a software, a specific keyboard, and an
Alcatel-Lucent 8 series or Alcatel-Lucent 9 series set.

The 4059 IP Keyboard
!" # "% & The USB Telephonic keyboard has specific keys for call handling and other telephone
functions. With an IP or a mixed IP configuration, the loudspeaker is replaced by a cover as
the audio features are provided by the Alcatel-Lucent 8 series or Alcatel-Lucent 9 series set.
On this keyboard, all keys which are not identical to those on a standard PC keyboard are
used by the 4059 application. These keys are used for immediate call handling, even when
using another application or when the application and/or the PC are off.
A LED is associated with each keyboard key dedicated to call handling. A lit LED informs the
attendant that the corresponding key is available for any operation.
Certain standard PC keys can also be used for call handling.
1.3.1
Switchover Key
This key is also called the application switchover key. When the 4059 application
started on the PC, the key is used to switch from the 4059 window to another PC
application (and vice versa).
Note:
Ensure that in the display configuration, the 4059 activation option: By Application switch
key is selected (see Alcatel-Lucent 4059 Attendant Console - Management from the attendant console - Window Appearance and Display)

Call Using the Set Directory
The personal directory (which can be programmed from the 4059 console, see the
Alcatel-Lucent 4059 Attendant Console - Management from the attendant console Programming the Individual Directory) is used to select a user directly via a key, without having

Call Using Programmed Key
When a key is programmed with a directory number, click on this key (or press the
corresponding F key on the keyboard, then the
key).
Note:
These keys (see the Alcatel-Lucent 4059 Attendant Console - Introduction to the 4059 Attendant console

console (see the Alcatel-Lucent 4059 Attendant Console - Management from the attendant console Programmable Keys).
3.3.4
Dial by Name
This feature allows you to call an internal (or external) user without having to dial their directory
number. Dial by name can be requested either from the idle state or during a consultation call.
When a dial by name request is made, the system carries out an internal search in the
available directories. These directories can be the personal directory for the set, the system
directory, or a standardized LDAP or ODBC directory. They are managed by the system
administrator. To determine which directories are used to dial by name, see the Alcatel-Lucent

To call an internal user:
1. Dial the set number. The status of this set (free, busy, other) is shown in the call handling
field (see the Alcatel-Lucent 4059 Attendant Console - Introduction to the 4059 Attendant

S Keys
During call handling, additional functions (presented on the S keys) can be used for the
following operations:
Note:
The
4.2.1
keys are used to change page.
Chained Call
Routing with chained release.
Routing with chained release allows the attendant to transfer an external call to an internal set.
The external party is rerouted to the attendant set as soon as the internal user has on-hooked.
The same call can therefore be routed to several sets in succession.
4.2.2
Charged Call
Routing with charged release.
During the routing of an external outgoing call to an internal user, the charged release
activates the call back to the attendant set when the internal set on-hooks. Answering the call
back displays the identity of the set and the number of charge units charged to this set.
4.2.3
Release Ctrl
Routing with release control.
During the routing of an external call to a busy internal set, the attendant can put the call on
hold with release control. When the internal user on-hooks, their set is not rung, but the
external call returns to the attendant set. The attendant can then route it to the called user.
4.2.4
Frwrd Attnd
Forwarding between attendants.
The attendant can forward an internal or external call to another attendant (or attendant group)
whose set is in service and available. The attendant can thus successively route the same call
to several user sets.
