Prerequisites for Installation
You must meet the following requirements before installing the EXTender 6000:
Network Requirements
•
You must install and configure appropriate network terminating devices at both the corporate facility
and the branch office. Both network-terminating devices must be fully functional and both must
support an RS-232, V.35, or RS-530 synchronous, asynchronous or Voice over IP (VOIP) interface.
•
If you use an asynchronous connection, you must install the appropriate ISDN Terminal Adapters
(TAs), from the list below. The TAs must be operational at both the corporate facility and the Branch
Office. This list is complete as of the release date of this document. Refer to the MCK’s Web site:
http://www.mck.com/ for the most recent list of recommended ISDN TAs. If using a synchronous

ISDN Requirements (for asynchronous connections)
Before you install your units, order an ISDN BRI line at both the local site and the remote branch office.
This ISDN line should be capable of the following:
•
The ability to make two “data” calls, one on each B Channel of the ISDN line.
•
If long distance, both “data” calls must be set up as “data”.
Note: Confirm this with your long distance provider when you order your ISDN Line. A call is defined
as “voice” or “data” in the setup message.
Information for the System Administrator
When your ISDN BRI line is installed, you receive two Service Profile Identifiers (SPIDs) and two
Directory Numbers (DNs). Provide these numbers to the System Administrator. Record the SPID and DN
information and keep it in a safe place for reference when installing the ISDN TAs. If you do not have the
SPIDs or DNs, you cannot program the ISDN TAs.

* MCK’s IP-based products utilize VOIP technology to deliver remote voice
solutions. The voice quality of these solutions is dependent on variables such as
available bandwidth, network latency and quality of service (QoS) initiatives, all
of which are controlled by the network and internet service providers. Because
these variables are not our control, we cannot guarantee the performance of the
user’s IP-based remote voice solution.

Set Up Wizard
The EXTender provides a console setup wizard that guides you through many of the required
programming/ configuration required to complete initial setup of the units, via the VT100 management
console accessed through the DB9 management port.
You can access the setup wizard through the console MI. This requires a PC connection to the unit via
the DB9 console port. The wizard requests basics configuration information to establish the initial
configuration programming. You can use the MI to configure parameters that are not configurable through
the wizard.
Standard Console User Interface vs. the Setup Wizard
When a unit is first powered up it checks a Setup Wizard flag. If the flag is set, the standard console UI is
displayed. If the flag is not set, the system prompts you to run the Setup Wizard. After this initial Setup
Wizard prompt, the system sets the Setup Wizard flag to prevent you from receiving this prompt again.

to log agents out of the ACD queue in the event of an abnormal disconnect. This prevents ACD agents
from receiving calls during a network outage. The MSB function is programmed to represent a button on
the telephone which will be pressed in the event of an abnormal disconnect. In an ACD agent application,
this key should be programmed as the Unavailable Key. In a non-ACD application, this key should be
programmed as the Hold/DND or Hold/Quick Forward Key.

Setting up Call-Suspend
The Call Suspend feature allows the telecom manager to reduce communication costs by bringing down
the ISDN/IP connection when all phones are inactive for a configurable period of time. When the line is
disconnected the phones indicate that they are in the Call Suspend mode. Whenever a user goes offhook or an incoming call occurs, the ISDN/IP connection is brought back up and all phones are taken out
of Call Suspend mode.
The Call Suspend feature operates with the assumption that if the ISDN connection is brought down, it is
possible to get busy signals from the ISDN/IP network preventing the EXTenders to communicate and
causing an interruption of telephone service to the branch office. This assumption leads to setting the Call
Suspend timer to a value that does not allow the ISDN/IP connection to go down during normal business
hours.
The expected usage pattern for the ISDN/IP connection is that at the beginning of the business day, the
phones are brought out of Call Suspend mode bringing up the IDSN/IP connection when the first user
either goes off-hook or an incoming call arrives. The ISDN/IP connection remains up for the remainder of
the business day because all phones are not idle longer than the Call Suspend timeout value. At the end
EXTender 6000 Quick Installation Guide
39
of the day, all phones become inactive for the Call Suspend timeout value and the ISDN/IP connection is
brought down. If anyone works late or comes in early, normal usage brings up the ISDN/IP connection
again.
Procedure
1. Access the Call_Suspend Menu using the following path;
Path: Remote->Configuration->Connect->RVP_Direct->Call_Suspend
Path: Remote->Configuration->Connect->RVP_over_IP->Default_Port
