North American Regulatory Information
Safety
This equipment meets all applicable requirements of both the
CSA C22.2 No.60950 and UL 60950.
The shock hazard symbol within an equilateral
triangle is intended to alert personnel to electrical
shock hazard or equipment damage. The following
precautions should also be observed when
installing telephone equipment.
Never install telephone wiring during a lightning storm.
Never install telephone jacks in wet locations unless
the jack is specifically designed for wet locations.
Never touch uninsulated telephone wires or terminals
unless the telephone line has been disconnected at the
network interface.
Use caution when working with telephone lines.
DANGER: Risk of shock.
Read and follow installation instructions carefully.
Ensure the system and system expansion units are
unplugged from the power socket and that any
telephone or network cables are unplugged before
opening the system or system expansion unit.

Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide
22 / Regulations
The exclamation point within an equilateral triangle is intended
to alert the user to the presence of important operating and
maintenance (servicing) instructions in the literature
accompanying the product.
CAUTION: Only qualified persons should service the
system.
The installation and service of this hardware is to be
performed only by service personnel having
appropriate training and experience necessary to be
aware of hazards to which they are exposed in
performing a task and of measures to minimize the
danger to themselves or other persons.
Electrical shock hazards from the telecommunication
network and AC mains are possible with this
equipment. To minimize risk to service personnel and
users, the system must be connected to an outlet with
a third-wire ground. Service personnel must be alert to
the possibility of high leakage currents becoming
available on metal system surfaces during power line
fault events near network lines. These leakage currents

addendum (P0609198 02):
•
The enhanced Call log feature allows you to log all calls to
a telephone, or to gather logs for specific lines assigned to
a telephone. The Call log set feature allows you to
determine which assigned lines will collect logs. Refer to
Call log set on page 358 and Call log on page 436. (all

•
The second dial tone table allows the user to enter up to 10
one to four-digit numbers that, when dialed, will cause the
system to produce a second dial tone, at which time the
user can enter the remaining call digits. Refer to
Configuring the second dial tone table on page 403. (all
profiles)
•
Profiles 1 and 4, PRI: The Send Name Display feature
allows you to specify if you want the business name and
OLI to be transmitted over specific PRI lines. This setting
appears for PRI cards set to SL1, NI-2, DMS100, or

7316E digital phone upgrade note: The addendum also made
reference to the reconfiguration that occurs for 7316E digital
phones installed on pre-6.1 systems that are upgraded to 6.1 or
newer software. On systems prior to 6.1, the 7316E acts as a
7316 digital phone. When an upgrade to 6.1 or newer software
occurs, the 7316E reconfigures as a 7316E, which means that
any memory button programming is lost. As well, line button,
Answer DN, and intercom assignments shift to the 7316E
defaults. Refer to the MICS 7.1 System Coordinator Guide for
details about default button programming for both these

ISDN layers
ISDN bearer capability
services and features for ISDN PRI and BRI
ISDN hardware
ISDN standards compatibility
Integrated Services Digital Network (ISDN) technology
provides a fast, accurate, and reliable means of sending and
receiving voice, data, images, text, and other information
through the telecom network.
ISDN uses existing analog telephone wires. The signal on the
wire gets divided into separate digital channels, which
dramatically increases the bandwidth.
ISDN uses a single transport to carry multiple information
types. What once required separate networks for voice, data,
images, or video conferencing is now combined on to one
common high-speed transport.
Note: Nortel endeavors to test all variations of ISDN BRI and
PRI on Norstar. However, due to the number of
variations, this is not always possible. Check with your
service provider about compatibility.
N0130943 01
Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide
54 / Welcome to ISDN
Comparing ISDN to Analog
ISDN offers significantly higher bandwidth and speed than
analog transmission because of its end-to-end digital
connectivity on all transmission circuits. Being digital allows
ISDN lines to provide better quality signaling than analog
POTS (plain ordinary telephone) lines. Also ISDN out-ofband data channel signaling offers faster call setup and tear
down.
While an analog line carries only a single transmission at a
time, an ISDN line can carry one or more voice, data, fax and
video transmissions simultaneously.
An analog modem operating at 14.4 K takes about 4.5 minutes
to transfer a 1 MB data file, while a 28.8K modem takes about
half that time. Using one channel of an ISDN line, the transfer
time is reduced to only one minute. If two ISDN channels are
used, transfer time is just 30 seconds.
When transmitting data, the connect time for an average ISDN
call is about three seconds per call, compared to about 21
seconds for the average analog modem call.
Type of ISDN service
Two types of ISDN services (lines) are available: Basic Rate
Interface (BRI) and Primary Rate Interface (PRI). Each line is
made up of separate channels known as B and D channels
which transmit information simultaneously.
•
BRI is known as 2B+D because it consists of
2 B-channels and one D-channel.
•
PRI is known as 23B+D because it consists of
23 B-channels and one D-channel.
Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide
N0130943 01
Welcome to ISDN / 55
B channels
B channels are the bearer channel. They are used to carry voice
or data information and have speeds of 64 kbps. Since each
ISDN line (BRI or PRI) has more than one B-channel, more
than one transmission can occur at the same time, using a
single ISDN line.
D channels
The standard signaling protocol is transmitted over a dedicated
data channel called the D-channel. The D-channel carries call
setup and feature activation information to the destination.
This channel has speeds of 16 kbps (BRI) and 64 kbps (PRI).
Data information consists of control and signal information
and packet-switched data such as credit card verification.
Tip - Norstar PRI supports the D-channel on the 24th
channel only. Norstar does not include support for a
backup D-channel on the span.
ISDN layers
ISDN layers refer to the standards established to guide the
manufacturers of ISDN equipment. The layers include both
physical connections, such as wiring, and logical connections,
which are programmed in computer software.
When equipment is designed to the ISDN standard for one of
the layers, it works with equipment for the layers above and
below it.
There are three layers at work in ISDN for Norstar. To support
ISDN service, all three layers must be working properly.
N0130943 01
Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide
56 / Welcome to ISDN
Layer 1: A physical connection that supports fundamental
signaling passed between the ISDN network (your service
provider) and the Norstar ICS. When a DTI card configured as
BRI or PRI is used for a network connection, the LED for the
loop on the card is lit when the layer 1 is functioning.
Layer 2: A logical connection between the ISDN network
(your service provider) and the Norstar ICS. Norstar has two
of these connections for each BRI line, one for each of the
logical lines. Without Layer 2, call processing is not possible,
and there is no dial tone.
Layer 3: Also a logical connection between the ISDN network
(your service provider) and the Norstar ICS. For BRI lines,
layer 3 is where call processing and service profile identifier
(SPID) information is exchanged. This controls which central
office services are available to the connection. For example, a
network connection can be programmed to carry data calls.
The system of layers is important when you are installing,
maintaining, and troubleshooting an ISDN system. See
Problems with BRI service on page 615 for more information
about working with the layers.
ISDN bearer capability
Bearer capability describes the transmission standard used by
the BRI or PRI line that allows it to work within a larger ISDN
hardware and software network.
The bearer capability for BRI and PRI is voice/speech at
3.1 kHz audio, and data at unrestricted 64 kbps, restricted
64 kbps, 56 kbps.

Transmission of B-channel packet data is not supported by
Modular ICS.
Contact your ISDN service provider for more information
about these services and features. Packages for ISDN service
in North America are described on page 74.
The terminal equipment (TE) connected to the Norstar system
can use some feature codes supported by the ISDN service
provider. Refer to ISDN services and features in the Modular
ICS 7.1 System Coordinator Guide for more information.
Feature descriptions
The following section provides brief descriptions about the
ISDN features, and links for more programming information.
Network name display
This feature allows ISDN to deliver the Name information of
the users to those who are involved in a call that is on a public
or private network. For information about system
programming for this feature see, BusName on page 466.
Systems with Advanced Private Networking connections
(MCDN SL-1) to a Meridian system also retain information
about sets that have forwarded or transferred a call, as well as
the originating caller information.This feature is called
Network Call Redirection Information (NCRI). This
information is available to all parties involved in the call.
Calls can only be redirected for a defined number of times
within the network. This is currently hardcoded to five times.
Once this limit is reached, call redirection will be disallowed
for any type of outgoing line being presented for redirection.
N0130943 01
Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide
60 / Welcome to ISDN
Instead, the call will be handled in one of these ways:
•
If Call Forward on Busy is programmed, the call will ring
if a free key is available. Otherwise, it goes to the Prime
set. DND Busy programming is ignored.
•
If Call Forward All Calls is programmed, the call will go
to the Prime set.
•
If Call Forward No Answer is programmed, the call will
continue to ring at the destination.
Note: If a terminal rejects a call, the call goes to the Prime set,
if a Prime set is configured for the target line. If the
target line is configured to send a busy tone, the call
gets released with the reason as User Busy.
Message Waiting Indicator (MWI)
Systems with Advanced Private Networking connections to a
Meridian system Voice Mail system provide message-waiting
indicators at telephones connected to those lines. Telephones
with displays display a message. Non-display terminals may
have a lamp that lights when a message is waiting. The setting
for this feature is defined from the Meridian system.
Name and number blocking
This feature suppresses the outgoing name and/or number on
a call-by-call basis. For information on system programming
of this feature see, Outgoing Name and Number Blocking on
page 470. You can also set a PRI module to allow or block
outgoing caller information. Use this feature if lines are
connected to switches that do not support name display. Refer
to Send Name Display (PRI) on page 524.
Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide
N0130943 01
Welcome to ISDN / 61
External call forwarding
The system now allows you to forward calls to an external
number. This feature is activated using ≤› from the
telephone.
MCDN trunk features
Systems with MCDN Private Networking connections can
provide these trunk routing features:
•
Trunk Route Optimization (TRO) finds the most direct
route through the network to send a call between nodes.
This function occurs during the initial alerting phase of a
call.
•
ISDN Call Connection Limitation: The ICCL feature
piggybacks on the call initiation request and acts as a check
at transit PBX points to prevent misconfigured routes or
calls with errors from blocking channels.
•
Trunk Anti-tromboning (TAT) is a call-reroute feature that
works to find better routes during a transfer of an active
call. This feature acts to prevent unnecessary tromboning
of trunks. This action occurs after the speech path has been
established.
Call by Call service selection for PRI
Call by Call service selection allows a user to access services
or private facilities over a PRI line without the use of dedicated
facilities. Various types of services such as FX, Tie, and
OUTWATS are available, depending on the Protocol that is
selected. Private network settings are used for tandem
networking and Advanced Private Networking.
Outgoing calls are routed through a dedicated PRI Pool and the
calls can be routed based on various schedules.

Emergency 911 dialing
Modular ICS 7.1 with the ISDN PRI feature is capable of
transmitting the telephone number and internal extension
number of a calling station dialing 911 to the Public Switched
Telephone Network.
State and local requirements for support of Emergency 911
dialing service by Customer Premises Equipment vary.
Consult your local telecommunications service provider
regarding compliance with applicable laws and regulations.
For most installations, the following configuration rules
should be followed, unless local regulations require other
settings.
•
All PSTN connections must be over PRI.
•
In order for all sets to be reachable from the Public Safety
Answering Point (PSAP), the system must be configured
for DID access to all sets. In order to reduce confusion, the
dial digits for each telephone should be configured to
correspond to the extension number (DN).
•
The OLI digits for each telephone should be identical to
the DID dialed digits for the telephone.
•
The System Coordinator is responsible for maintaining a
site map or location directory that allows emergency
Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide
N0130943 01
Welcome to ISDN / 63
personnel to rapidly locate a telephone given its DID
number. This list should be kept up to date and readily
available, and can be included in the Programming Record
•
The routing table should route 911 to a public line or line
pool.
•
If attendant notification is required, the routing table must
be set up for all 911 calls to use a dedicated line which has
an appearance on the attendant console.
Note: The actual digit string 911 is not hard-coded into the
system. More than one emergency number can be
supported
MCID (Profile 2)
The MCID feature allows you to use ≤°·‡ to have
call information recorded on the central office database for an
incoming call on a specific line (EUROISDN lines, only).
The user must invoke the feature code during the active call or
within 30 seconds (time varies on different networks) after the
caller hangs up. The user must remain on the line to enter the
code.
Network Call Diversion (Profile 2)
This feature is a network function of ETSI E1 lines that allows
forwarding and redirection of calls outside the Norstar
network when using an ETSI ISDN line. Functionality is
similar to that of External Call Forward (ECF). NCD redirects
calls using the same line on which they arrive. Call forward is
efficient since there is no need for additional outside lines.
N0130943 01

DTI card configured as a PRI card
The DTI card on your Norstar system can be configured to
support PRI. For information about configuring a DTI card as
a PRI type card, see Provisioning the DTI card for PRI on page
496.
ISDN hardware
To support connections to an ISDN network and ISDN
terminal equipment, your Modular ICS must be equipped with
one or more BRI cards (BRI-U or BRI-ST), a DTI card
configured for PRI, and a Combination Fiber 6-port Services
Cartridge or a Services Cartridge.
DTI card configured as PRI
A DTI card configured as PRI provides one T loop. Refer to
T reference points on page 68 for more information.
In most PRI network configurations, you need one DTI card
configured as PRI in your ICS to act as the primary clock
reference. The only time when you may not have PRI
designated as the primary clock reference is in a network
where your Norstar system is connected back-to-back with
another switch using a PRI link, such as is the case with the
Advanced Private Networking configuration.
However, if the other switch is loop-timed to your Norstar
system, your DTI card, configured as PRI, can be designated
as a timing master.
If your Norstar has two DTI cards configured as PRI, you
cannot assign both cards as the primary reference or both cards
as the secondary reference. You can only have one primary
reference and one secondary reference per system. Refer to
ClockSrc on page 505 for more information.
Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide

BRI Card
The loops on BRI-U and BRI-ST cards can be programmed to
support either network or terminal connections. This allows
you to customize your arrangement of lines, voice terminals,
data terminals and other ISDN equipment.
Detailed wiring information for BRI and PRI network and
terminal connections is included in the Installation on page
227.
BRI-U2 and BRI-U4 card
A BRI-U2 card supports two loops and the BRI-U4 supports
four loops. Each loop can be individually programmed to
provide one of the following:
•
•
a U-LT reference point connection for terminal equipment
(TE) with built-in NT1 functionality (U interface)
a U-NT reference point connection for direct connection to
an ISDN network
BRI-ST card
A BRI-ST card provides four loops. Each loop can be
individually programmed to one of the following:
•
•

U-NT and U-LT loops can be used in combination to provide
D-packet service for a point-of-sale terminal adapter (POSTA)
or other D-packet device. D-packet service is a 16 kbps data
transmission service that uses the D-channel of an ISDN line.
To deliver D-packet service, a network connection (U-NT) is
programmed to work with a terminal connection (U-LT). The
loops must be on the same physical card. For example, if the
network connection is a loop found on the BRI Card in Slot 1,
the terminal connection must be a loop found on the same card.
S reference point
The S reference point connection provides either a point-topoint or point-to-multipoint digital connection between
Norstar and ISDN terminal equipment (TE) that uses an
S interface.
S loops support up to seven ISDN DNs, which identify TE to
the ICS.

Clock source for ISDN cards
Systems with ISDN interfaces need to synchronize clocking
with the ISDN network and any connected ISDN terminal
equipment. Clocking synchronization is supported by either a
Combination Fiber 6-port Services Cartridge or a Services
Cartridge.
The Modular ICS derives timing from the network using
U-NT and T reference points (loops). Terminal equipment on
U-LT and S reference points (loops) derive timing from the
ICS.
Systems synchronize clocking to the first-available functional
network connection. If there are excessive errors on the
reference network connection, or if the loop fails, the nextavailable functional network connection is used for clock
synchronization.
The clock synchronization process generates alarm codes and
event messages. See the Alarm codes on page 548 and Event
messages on page 555 for more information.
When you configure the network connections to the Modular
ICS, you should take into account the system preferences for
selecting loops for synchronization:
•
lower numbered loops have preference over higher
numbered loops
•
the loop preference order is: 201, 202, 203, 204, 225, 226,
227, 228 (Profile 1, 3 and 4), or 201, 202, 203, 204, 231,
232, 233, 234 (Profile 2)
the system skips U-LT, S, and analog loops when selecting
a network connection for synchronization
•
N0130943 01
Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide
70 / Welcome to ISDN
Systems with only U-LT and S loops act as timing masters for
the attached terminal equipment (TE), and are not
synchronized to the network. ISDN TE without access to a
network connection (BRI lines) has limited or no
functionality.
If your system has both a BRI and a DTI card configured as
PRI installed, it is recommended that you use PRI as the
primary clock source, see DTI card configured as a PRI card
on page 64.
Other ISDN BRI equipment: NT1
The NT1 (network termination type 1) connects an S interface
(four-wire) to a U interface (two-wire). In most cases, it
connects loops from a BRI-ST card to the network connection,
which uses the U interface. It can also connect S interface
terminal equipment (TE) to the U loop from a BRI-U2 or
BRI-U4 Card.
An NT1 is not required to connect from the network to BRI-U
cards or to connect U interface TE to an ICS equipped with
BRI-U cards.
The NT1 converts and reformats data so it can be transmitted
to and from the S or T connection. In addition, it manages the
maintenance messages travelling between the network and the
NT1, and between the NT1 and the ICS.
The NT1 from Nortel Networks is packaged two ways:
•
•
as a stand alone package, which contains one NT1 card
(NTBX80XX) and a power supply (NTBX81XX)
as a modular package, which contains up to 12 NT1 cards
(NTBX83XX) and a power supply (NTBX86AA)

Supported ISDN protocols
The switch used by your service provider must be running the
appropriate protocol software and the correct version of that
software to support ISDN PRI and ISDN BRI. Each protocol
is different and supports different services. Contact your
service provider to ensure that your ISDN connection has the
protocol you require.
For more information about the supported protocols and
services, refer to Call by Call service for PRI on page 471.
ISDN programming
Most of the configuration programming for PRI and BRI lines
and ISDN terminals and devices is done under Hardware.

Some steps will not be necessary, depending on the service
you are providing.
More detailed information is included under the individual
headings and settings in the Programming and Maintenance
sections.
For complete card and cartridge installation instructions and
safety precautions, see Installation on page 227.
1. Collect the information supplied by your service provider
to support your ISDN package.
2. Ensure that a Combination Fiber 6-port Services
Cartridge, or a Services Cartridge has been installed in the
ICS.
3. Install the DTI cards in the ICS. Refer to Installing the
cartridges on page 231 for information about card
placement. If you are not using DTI cards, determine
which type of card you will preprogram the ICS to use in
each slot.
Tips - For systems running 6.0 or greater software, a DTI
card can be installed off-core on Module 3 or 4 on the Midi
system, or module 7 or 8 on the Maxi system to expand the PRI
capability of your system. This card is only supported on
Profile 1 and 4.
Note: Legacy DTI cards cannot be used off-core. A new DTI
card was released in 2002 that can be used in any position.
4. Disable each card under Maintenance.
5. Select a card type (PRI) in Hardware. See Provisioning
the DTI card for PRI on page 496, for information about
protocol and other settings you must configure.

Tips - If you are using one or more of the lines on this card
for MCDN private networking, this is where you specify that
protocol (SL-1).
6. Re-enable the card in Maintenance.
If required, the card goes through a firmware download
process, which takes five to six minutes. During a
firmware download, the bottom LED on the DTI card
flashes.
Programming ISDN BRI resources
Some steps will not be necessary depending on the service you
are providing.
More detailed information is included under the individual
headings and settings in the Programming and Maintenance
sections.
For complete card and cartridge installation instructions and
safety precautions, see Installation on page 227.
1. Collect the information supplied by your service provider
to support your ISDN package. This includes network
service profile identifiers (SPIDs) and Network DNs. If
you are supporting a point-of-sale terminal adapter, you
also need one or more terminal endpoint identifiers (TEIs).
2. Make sure a Combination Fiber 6-port Services Cartridge,
or a Services Cartridge has been installed in the ICS.
3. Install the BRI card in the ICS, Trunk Module. Refer to
Installing the cartridges on page 231 for information about
BRI card placement. If you are not using a BRI card,

Working with ISDN / 79
4. Disable each card in Maintenance under Module
Status.
5. Under Hardware, select a card type: BRI-ST, BRI-U2,
BRI-U4.
6. Under Hardware, select the type for each loop:
• for a BRI card, select T or S if the card type is BRI-ST
• for a BRI-U2 or BRI-U4 card, select LT or NT
7. If the card uses a T or NT loop, enter the following
information, as supplied by your service provider:
• the SPID assigned to the loop
• the number of B-channels associated with each SPID
• the Network DNs used with the network SPID
• the call type of the Network DN
Repeat the programming for the second network SPID, if
any.
If the T or NT loop is used for D-packet service:
• turn on the service
• assign the appropriate S-loop mapping for BRI-ST
cards or LT-loop mapping for BRI-U2 or U4 cards
• assign the TEIs to the loop. These are provided by the
telco to support a point-of-sale terminal adapter or
other D-packet service device.
If the loop type is S, select the sampling used on the loop.
If the loop type is S or LT:
• assign ISDN DNs to the loop
• designate one of the assigned ISDN DNs to be the DN
for the loop (Loop DN).
Note: You can have a maximum of 30 ISDN DNs on your
system. The default ISDN DN range is 667-696 on
N0130943 01
Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide
80 / Working with ISDN
systems upgraded from previous versions, and 699–
728 on new 7.1 systems, for a system with three-digit
DNs. You can also access the portable range of DNs
(638-666 on systems upgraded from previous versions,
and 669-698 on new 7.1 systems) if you need more
DNs than the ISDN range has available. To change
ISDN DN type, see Change DNs on page 430.
8. Re-enable the card in Maintenance. Refer to Disabling a
PRI Channel on page 565.
If required, the card goes through a firmware download
process, which takes five to six minutes. During a
firmware download, the bottom LED on the BRI card
flashes.
9. Provision the loops and lines, as appropriate, in
Maintenance. Refer to Provisioning BRI and PRI lines on
page 563.
10. If you are configuring auto-answer BRI trunks to map to
target lines, program the received number for the target
line to be the same as the Network DN supplied by your
service provider. This setting is found under Lines.
Assign the ISDN lines and target lines to the appropriate
ISDN DNs, which are the set of DNs reserved for use by
ISDN devices. This setting is found under
Terminals&Sets/Line access. ISDN lines can also be
assigned to the DNs used by the telephones or any other
devices connected to the Modular ICS.
Program the ISDN terminals and devices with the
appropriate ISDN DNs and terminal SPIDs by following
the instructions that come with the devices. For more
information, see Programming ISDN equipment on page
83.
If you are setting up a D-packet service, program the pointof-sale terminal adapter or other D-packet service device

N0130943 01
Working with ISDN / 81
with the appropriate TEI (provided by your service
provider), terminal SPID, and DN by following the
instructions that come with the device.
Programming ISDN PRI lines
When the configuration programming under Hardware is
complete, your PRI lines are ready to be programmed. For
information about programming your PRI lines, see Call by
Call service for PRI on page 471.
Programming ISDN BRI lines
When the configuration programming under Hardware is
complete, your BRI lines are ready to be programmed in the
same way as analog lines. You can, for example, place them in
pools and assign them to system telephones, or ISDN terminal
equipment.
However, there are some differences in the way BRI lines
work that will influence how you configure them to handle
incoming and outgoing calls.
•
For BRI lines, in most cases, your service provider
supplies two SPIDs – one for each B channel. Each SPID
and one or more Network DNs are associated with a single
line. Calls to a Network DN come in on a specific line.
Pressing a line button selects the same line every time.
•
If your service provider supplies you with a single SPID
for both B channels, incoming and outgoing calls are
handled according to the loop. The two lines provided by
the BRI loop are pooled for both incoming and outgoing
calls.
For example, if Loop 201 is programmed with a single
SPID, which supports lines 001 and 002, incoming calls
made to a Network DN associated with the SPID appear on
either line 001 or line 002. If you press the line button for
N0130943 01
Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide
82 / Working with ISDN
line 001, either line 001 or line 002 is selected. For loops
which use a single SPID, assign both lines on a loop to a
telephone to guarantee that all calls appear at the
telephone.
Programming Direct Inward System Access (DISA) on
PRI trunks
When a trunk cartridge is set to PRI, all lines on that trunk are
set to Auto Answer without Direct Inward System Access
(DISA).
DISA can be accessed by one of two methods.
1) Define the DISA DN to match the trailing digits of the
Called Party Number (CDN).
With Public, Private, and Tie service types, the CDN is
simply truncated to the Target Line Receive Digit Length
and is parsed to match the Target Line Receive Digits.
DISA can be accessed by having the DISA DN match the
trailing digits of the CDN. For example, with a Receive
Digit Length = 4, and DISA DN = 1234, a call made to
Public DN 763-1234 will be handled as follows:
•
•
•
•
the ISDN setup message will contain a CDN of 763-1234
the CDN will be truncated to the four digits, 1234
1234 matches the DISA DN
the call will be answered with DISA
2) Use incoming Call by Call (CbC) Service routing to map the
call type to the DISA DN. Refer to Programming Call by
Call service selection on page 474 for more information.
With FX, INWATS, 900, and SDS service types, either a
Service Id (SID) or a CDN is mapped to Target Line
Receive Digits.
Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide
N0130943 01
Working with ISDN / 83
This is programmed under Call-by-Call Routing. DISA
may be accessed by having the SID or CDN map to the
DISA DN. This example has a Receive Digit Length = 4,
DISA DN = 1234, and CbC Routing with (Service Type =
FX, Map from SID = 2, Map to digits = 1234).
A call presented to the Norstar system with service type
FX and SID 2 will be handled as follows:
• The ISDN setup message will specify FX with SID = 2
• The FX SID = 2 will be mapped to DISA DN digits 1234
The call will be answered with DISA
Programming ISDN equipment
DTI cards configured as PRI support various applications that
are enabled by PRI. For a list of the type of applications that
are support, see ISDN applications on page 193.
Terminal equipment for BRI cards
ISDN devices and terminals connected to the ICS must be
configured under the Hardware heading in system
programming. You choose directory numbers for ISDN
equipment from a pre-determined range of DNs (667-696 on
systems upgraded from previous versions, and 699-728 on
new 7.1 systems). Any of the ISDN DNs can be assigned to
any U-LT or S loop, but each can only be assigned to one loop
and one device.
Devices on an S or LT loop (BRI cards only)
Terminal equipment using a U-LT loop or S loop must be
assigned an ISDN directory number (ISDN DN). This allows
the TE to be assigned lines and to communicate with other
devices connected to the ICS. Each DN can be assigned to only
one TE and one loop.
N0130943 01
Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide
84 / Working with ISDN
You assign ISDN DNs to S loops and LT loops under Assign
DNs under Hardware. Each S or LT loop can be programmed
with eight ISDN DNs, but you cannot exceed a total of 30
ISDN DNs for the Modular ICS.
Once you have assigned ISDN DNs to a loop, designate one of
the DNs as a Loop DN. The Loop DN acts as a main ISDN DN
and completes the configuration of the loop.
The ISDN terminal equipment (TE) on the loop is also
programmed with its ISDN DN. See the instructions that come
with the ISDN device for information on how to program it to
recognize the assigned DN. Most devices will require both a
terminal service profile identifier (terminal SPID) and a DN,
and some will require two terminal SPIDs and two ISDN DNs.
The SPID used with the device should not be confused with a
SPID used for network connections using an T or NT loop.
To create a terminal SPID for a device, add at least two zeros
to the end of the ISDN DN. Add more zeros to the beginning
or end of the ISDN DN until you have the length of SPID
required by the TE. For example, if an ISDN telephone
requires a six-digit SPID and has a DN of 699, its SPID is
069900. If the same TE requires a minimum of 10 digits, the
SPID is 0000069900.
Most ISDN terminals require a five-digit SPID. An ISDN PC
card usually requires a 10-digit SPID. Follow the directions
that come with the ISDN device to program it with a SPID and
ISDN DN.

ISDN router
By connecting an ISDN router to your Modular ICS, a group
of PCs can share Internet access. This arrangement is best for
a workplace where each personal computer occasionally uses
an Internet connection.
ICS
ISDN
PCs with

LAN
To support Internet access, you must order BRI lines from
your service provider, and subscribe to an Internet service
from an Internet service provider (ISP). Your personal
computer must have an Internet browser and any applications
supplied by your ISP.
D-packet service (BRI cards only)
The D-packet service supplied by the Modular ICS supports a
point-of-sale terminal adapter (POSTA). Connecting a
POSTA allows transaction terminals, such as devices where
you swipe credit or debit cards, to transmit information using
the D channel of the BRI line. At the same time, the B channels
of the BRI line remain available for voice and data calls. A
special adapter links transaction equipment, such as cash
registers, credit card verification rigs, and point-of-sale
terminals, to the X.25 network. This is a data communications
network designed to transmit information in the form of small
data packets.
Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide
N0130943 01
Working with ISDN / 87
To support the D-packet service, your ISDN network and
financial institution must be equipped with a D-packet
handler. To convert the protocol used by the transaction
equipment to the X.25 protocol, your ISDN network must also
be equipped with an integrated X.25 PAD.
X.25 PAD works with the following versions of X.25: Datapac
32011, CCITT, T3POS, ITT and API. The ISDN service
package you order must include D-packet service, for
example, Package P in the U.S. or Microlink™ with
D-channel in Canada.
Your service provider supplies a Terminal Endpoint Identifier
(TEI) and a DN to support D-packet service. The TEI is a
number between 00 and 63 in the U.S. In Canada, the default
range is 21-63. Your service provider may also supply you
with a DN to program your D-packet device. The DN for
D-packet service becomes part of the dialing string used by the
D-packet to call the packet handler.
POSTA for ISDN BRI
When you configure D-channel packet service, you are
specifying the transmission path between an ISDN loop on the
network side of the ICS and the ISDN loop on the telephone
side. The telephone side loop is the loop used by the point-ofsale terminal adapter. The service is turned on and configured
using the network loop programming found under Hardware.
Use NT loop for BRI-U2 and BRI-U4 cards and S or T loop
for BRI-ST cards.
To set up D-packet service:
•
go to the programming settings for the network loop under
Hardware. (S, T, or NT loop)
•
select the S loop or LT loop used by the POSTA
N0130943 01
Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide
88 / Working with ISDN
•
enter the terminal endpoint identifiers (TEIs) supplied by
your service provider
Point-of-sale terminal adapter
The point-of-sale terminal adapter is an analog device that
connects to point-of-sale devices using an RS-232 interface
and a U-LT loop. It handles the routing of packet information
from the devices to the ICS and into the ISDN network.
Your service provider, usually a financial institution, supplies
you with information about the compatible controller, which
handles the routing of packet information from the devices to
the ICS and into the ISDN network.
Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide
N0130943 01
Trunks and target lines
Trunks are external lines that provide the physical connection
between a Norstar system and other systems in a private or
public network. Trunks are numbered 001 to 156 in a fully
expanded system. Norstar Modular ICS supports six different
types of trunks:
•
PRI trunks are used for incoming and outgoing calls over
an ISDN network. PRI SL-1 lines can provide MCDN
network functionality in a private network between other
Norstar systems, Meridian 1 systems, or Business
Communications Systems, if the appropriate software
code has been installed.
•
T1 trunks are digital trunks that can be configured to act as
loop start, ground start, E&M, DID, or leased lines,
depending on your requirements.
— DID trunks route incoming calls from the public
network directly to telephones within Norstar, without
an attendant.
— Loop start trunks handle incoming and outgoing calls
between Norstar and the public network.
— E&M trunks handle incoming and outgoing traffic
between the Norstar system and the private network.
•
BRI trunks handle incoming and outgoing calls between
Norstar and an ISDN network.
•
Target lines are virtual communication paths between
trunks and telephones on the Norstar system. They are
incoming lines only, and cannot be selected for outgoing
calls. With 224 target lines in a fully expanded system, you
can concentrate auto answer calls on fewer trunks. This
type of concentration is an advantage of target lines.
Norstar mapping allows you to direct each target line to
N0130943 01
Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide
90 / Trunks and target lines
one or more telephones. Target lines are numbered 157 to
380 in a fully expanded system, and 157 to 284 in all
others.
Telephones can be configured to have an appearance of any
type of trunk and line, including target lines, but excluding PRI
trunks. If assigned, they are used for monitoring call usage.
Trunk operating modes (T1)
T1 trunks have four operating modes:
•
•
•
•
ground start (T1 only)
loopstart (analog and T1)
E&M (analog and T1)
DID (analog and T1)
Ground start trunks (T1 only)
Ground start trunks offer the same features as loop start trunks,
but are used when the local service provider does not support
disconnect supervision for the digital loop start trunks. Ground
start trunks work with T1 only.
By configuring lines as ground start, the system will be able to
recognize when a call is released at the far end.
Tips - You cannot change the trunk mode for a ground
start trunk on a DTI. It always has disconnect supervision.
A DTI can provide a maximum of 24 ground start trunks.
Analog ground start trunks are not supported.

Trunks and target lines / 91
DID trunks
DID trunks give you direct inward dialing (DID) from the

92 / Trunks and target lines
When a call comes in on a DID trunk, the Norstar system
interprets the incoming digits in one of the following ways.
•
If the digits map onto a target line, the call is routed to all
telephones with an appearance of that target line.
•
If the digits map onto the DISA DN, the caller hears
stuttered dial tone. They must enter a six-digit Class of
Service (COS) password from a DTMF telephone to hear
system dial tone.
They can then enter a:
— target line number
— line pool access code
— remote feature code
If the digits map onto the Auto DN, the caller hears system
dial tone. They can then enter:
•
— a target line number
— the DISA DN, which will prompt for a Class of Service
password
— a line pool access code
— a destination code
— a remote feature code from a DTMF telephone
Tips - Each DID Trunk Cartridge can provide four DID
trunks. Each DID Trunk Cartridge also has four DTMF
receivers dedicated to those trunks. A DTI can provide up to 24
DID trunks.
You cannot configure a DID trunk as the prime line for a
Norstar telephone or a Business Series Terminal.
The capabilities available to a remote caller are determined by
the remote filters and remote package assigned to a line, or by
the set restrictions, line restrictions and remote package
assigned to the Class of Service password.
Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide
N0130943 01
Trunks and target lines / 93
Analog loop start trunks
Loop start trunks give you incoming and outgoing access to
the public network. Loop start trunks can be configured as
manual-answer or auto-answer. The answer mode determines
how the system handles incoming calls.
When a call comes in on a manual-answer loop start trunk, it
alerts at all telephones with that line appearance.
When a call comes in on an auto-answer loop start trunk that
is configured to answer with direct inward system access
(DISA), the caller hears a stuttered dial tone. They must enter
a six-digit Class of Service (COS) password from a DTMF
telephone to access system dial tone.
Once the caller has system dial tone, they can then enter:
•
•
•
a target line number
a line pool access code
a remote feature code.
By default, auto answer loop start trunks are configured to
answer with DISA, and are used to provide controlled access
to Norstar system resources.

Configuration tips
•
Loop start signaling is supported by Loop Start Trunk
Cartridges, Call Information (CI) Trunk Cartridges and
Digital Trunk Interfaces (DTI). Each Loop Start Trunk
Cartridge or CI Trunk Cartridge can provide four loop start
trunks. A DTI can provide up to 24 loop start trunks. If you
wish to configure your loop start trunks as auto-answer,
the trunks must have disconnect supervision.
•
For Loop Start or CI Trunk Cartridges installed in a Trunk
Module, you will also need one E&M/DISA Trunk
Cartridge for every two loop start trunks that you configure
as auto-answer. The E&M/DISA Trunk Cartridge provides
two DTMF receivers to receive the incoming digits from
the central office. An auto-answer loop start trunk can give
you the same kind of direct inward dialing function as a
DID trunk.
•
If your system includes both loop start trunks and DID
trunks, you would typically use loop start trunks for
outgoing calls and DID trunks for incoming calls.
•
You may configure a loop start trunk as the prime line for
a Norstar telephone or a Business Series Terminal.
•
The capabilities available to a remote caller are determined
by the remote filters and remote package assigned to a line,
or by the set restrictions, line restrictions, and remote

BRI trunks provide a fast, accurate, and reliable means of
sending and receiving data, images, text, and voice
information. Using BRI lines allows for faster transmission
speeds and the addition of a variety of powerful business
applications, including remote LAN access, video
conferencing, file transfer and Internet access.
For more information, see Welcome to ISDN on page 53.
Note Profile 2: European BRI trunks can only be EURO
trunks.
PRI trunks
PRI trunks are used for incoming and outgoing calls over an
ISDN network. PRI trunks are automatically set to autoanswer.
Incoming calls are routed to system telephones through
assigned target lines. Outgoing calls are made using the
intercom key assigned to a PRI line pool, or by entering a
destination code to which a route has been defined using PRI
line pools. You cannot assign a PRI line directly to a
telephone.
PRI SL-1 lines also can provide MCDN network functionality
over a private network between other Norstar systems,
Meridian 1 systems, or Business Communications Systems, if
the appropriate keycode has been installed. Private networking
is described in Networking with Norstar on page 109.

Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide
98 / Trunks and target lines
Target lines
A target line is an internal communication path that is reached
by means of digits received from an incoming trunk. Target
lines are assigned to answer direct-dial incoming calls but they
cannot be used to make outgoing calls.
You can program auto-answer trunks to map to target lines to
provide for attendant bypass, which allows the call to go
directly to a department or individual, and to create line
concentration, where one trunk can map onto several target
lines.
No target lines are automatically assigned to telephones,
except if the DID template has been applied to the system.
Target lines are configured using line numbers 157-380
(mega) or 157-284, in the same way as physical lines.
Privacy issue
You can set a target line to Private (default is
Public), however, such features as Call Pickup
can still answer these lines at other telephones in
the group.

N0130943 01
Remote system access
The remote access feature allows callers elsewhere on the
private or the public network to access a Norstar system by
dialing directly into the system without going through an
attendant. Once in the system, the remote user can use some of
the system resources. The remote access must be enabled in
programming before callers can use it.
Norstar systems support remote system access on the
following trunk types, which may require the remote caller to
enter a COS password for direct inward system access (DISA):
•
•
•
•
auto-answer loop start trunks
auto-answer E&M trunks
DID trunks, by means of the DISA DN
PRI trunks, by means of the DISA DN
The system resources, such as dialing capabilities, line pool
access and feature access, that a remote user may access
depends on the Class of Service (COS) assigned to the user.
See Class of Service on page 103, COS pswds on page 412 and
the Modular ICS 7.1 System Coordinator Guide for more
details.
Use system features during a remote call
To use features on a Norstar system during a remote call-in,
press •, followed by the feature code. Even if you are calling
from another Norstar system or from within a private network,
press • instead of ≤.
N0130943 01
Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide
100 / Remote system access
Remote access on loop start and E&M trunks
Loop start trunks provide remote access to Norstar from the
public network. E&M trunks provide remote access from a
private network. Each must be configured to be auto-answer to
provide remote system access.
A loop start trunk must have disconnect supervision if it is to
operate in auto-answer mode. E&M trunks always operate in
disconnect supervised mode.
When a caller dials into the system on a line that has autoanswer, the system answers with system dial tone and no COS
password is required. In this case, control over the system
capabilities available to the caller is provided only by the
restriction filters assigned to the line.
When a caller dials in on a line that has auto-answer with
DISA, the system answers with stuttered dial tone. This is the
prompt to enter a COS password. The password used by the
caller determines which system capabilities are available to
the caller.
Remote access on a private network
Nodes on the private network deliver the last dialed digits to
the destination Norstar node, for interpretation by the
destination Norstar node. The destination Norstar node either
matches the digits to a target line or interprets the digits as a
remote feature request. The call is either routed to the specified
target line, or the remote feature is activated.
By default, E&M trunks are set to answer with DISA. For
auto-answer E&M trunks connected to a private network,
change the default so that the trunks are not answered with
DISA. If an auto-answer E&M trunk is configured to answer
with DISA, the system tries to interpret any received digits as
a COS password.
Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide
N0130943 01
Remote system access / 101
The DISA DN and the Auto DN allow auto-answer private
network and DID calls, in the same way that calls on
auto-answer loop start and auto-answer E&M trunks can be
answered, with or without DISA. These DNs are described in
System prgming under Access codes.
Remote access on Direct Inward Dial (DID) trunks
Remote system access on DID trunks is similar to that of E&M
trunks connected to a private network.
The main differences are:
•
•
•
a remote caller is on the public network dialing standard
local or long-distance telephone numbers
the digits received are delivered by the central office
DISA cannot be administered to a DID trunk
As with a private network, the dialed digits may be
programmed to match those of a specific target line DN, the
DISA DN or the Auto DN.
Remote access on PRI trunks
Remote system access on PRI trunks is similar to that of E&M
trunks connected to a private network.
The main differences are:
•
a remote caller is on the public network dialing standard
local or long-distance telephone numbers
•
•
the digits received are delivered by the central office
answer with DISA cannot be administered to a PRI trunk
since PRI trunks are set to autoanswer.
As with a private network, the dialed digits may be
programmed to match those of a specific target line DN, the
DISA DN, or the Auto DN.

Controlling system access
Modular ICS programming provides several ways of
protecting your Norstar system from unauthorized access or
use. These features are used in combination to provide control
both to users and to lines.
Class of Service
Class of Service (COS) refers to the capabilities that Norstar
provides to users who access the system from the public or
private network. A password defines which set of capabilities
the user has access to.
The COS includes:
•
•
filters that restrict dialing on the line
an access package defines the set of line pools that may be
accessed and whether or not the user has access to the
paging feature
The COS that is applied to an incoming remote access call is
determined by:
•
•
the filters that you apply to the incoming trunk
the Class of Service password that the caller used to gain
access to the Norstar system
In cases where DISA is not automatically applied to incoming
calls, the remote caller can change the class of service by
dialing the DISA DN and entering a COS password.
To program COS passwords, see Passwords on page 412 and
the Modular ICS 7.1 System Coordinator Guide.
N0130943 01
Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide
104 / Controlling system access
Restriction filters
Restriction filters can be used to restrict the numbers that may
be dialed on any external line within your Norstar system. Up
to 100 restriction filters can be created for the system.
A restriction filter consists of up to 48 restrictions with
associated overrides.
To restrict dialing within the system, you can apply filters to:
•
outgoing external lines (as line restrictions)
•
telephones (as set restrictions)
•
external lines on specific telephones (as line/set
restrictions)
Restriction filters can also be specified in Restriction
Service, for times when the system is operating according to
a Schedule. See Services on page 381 for more details.
Dialed digits must pass both the line restrictions and the set
restrictions. The line/set restriction overrides the line
restriction and set restriction. Refer to the following diagrams.

remote access, you can apply restriction filters to incoming
external lines, as remote restrictions.

Restrictions on page 349 and the Modular ICS 7.1 System
Coordinator Guide.
Direct inward system access (DISA)
To control access from the public or private network, you can
configure auto-answer trunks to answer with DISA. Remote
callers hear a stuttered dial tone and must then enter a COS
password. The password they enter determines what access
they are allowed in the system.
Auto-answer loop start and E&M trunks are configured to
answer with DISA by default. For DISA programming
instructions, see Ans with DISA on page 370.
Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide
N0130943 01
Controlling system access / 107
Tips - You must have one E&M/DISA Trunk Cartridge to
provide DTMF receivers for every two auto-answer loop start
trunks on Loop Start or CI Trunk Cartridges.
DID and PRI trunks cannot be configured to answer with
DISA. If you want incoming DID or PRI calls to be answered
with DISA, configure the system with a DISA DN. Incoming
calls that map onto the DISA DN are then routed to a line that
has DISA.
In addition to public network connections, Norstar Modular
ICS can be integrated into an existing private network, or to
other Norstar or Meridian 1 systems to form a corporate
telecommunications network.

Networking with Norstar
There are a number of ways you can network Norstar systems
together, or network Norstar systems with other Nortel
systems into private networks. What types of lines you use to
perform the networking will determine the type of services
that can be shared between systems.
Keep in mind that each node (Norstar system) is considered an
external system by every other node within the network, even
though, to the users, it appears to be all one system. This
affects how you configure call transfer and call out features on
each system. On the home node, all features are configured as
local numbers. On all other nodes, all features directed to the
home node are configured with external numbers.
As well, each node must have a unique identifying code. What
this code will be, and how it is configured for the user, depends
on what type of trunks and dialing rules you choose to use. If
the network has a Meridian as part of the network, the
Meridian administrator will determine identification codes for
the systems.
This section describes various configurations of private
networks. The general settings that are required to set up the
home node for each system are provided to give you a sense of
what is required for each type of network.
The common goal is to provide the user with the sense that the
network is one large system that provides common access to
colleagues in other buildings, cities, or countries. In some
systems they may need to enter a destination code before the
local number to route the call to the correct system. In other
systems, using a common dialing plan allows users to dial
colleagues at any location simply by entering the same number
of digits they would use to dial a colleague at the next desk.

Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide
112 / Dialing plans
Dialing plans
Dialing plans allow users to enter consistent dialing
information to call other systems, or out to a public network
through another system. The type of network determines what
kind of dialing scheme is required.
The Norstar system has routing features that allow you to set
up a transparent dialing plan with other systems in a public or
private network. In a private network, you can choose to use
either a uniform dialing plan (UDP) or a coordinated dialing
plan (CDP) to determine how the system recognizes private
network dialing strings.
A networked system uses the Public DN length to determine
the number of digits that must be collected before the call is
dialed outside each node on the system. Calls routed over
private networks using CDP also use the public DNs in concert
with a destination code that determines the routing of dialed
DN. With CDP, the node identifier is included in the dialed
DN string and is unique to each node.
If you create a network-wide dialing plan using CDP:
•
all telephone DNs across the network need to be the same
length (Public DN length)
•
the first digit of the DN must be unique to each system, i.e.
node A has DNs 2222 to 2999, node B has DNS 3222 to
3999, and so on.
•
you indicate that you are using a coordinated dialing plan
(System Programming/Dialing Plan/Private
network)
Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide
N0130943 01
Dialing plans / 113
•
you create access codes that are routed out on auto-answer
lines connected to the other sites (Access Codes and Call
Routing)
•
a telephone can be reached using the access code and the
telephone number, regardless of where the call originates
in the network
Calls routed over private networks using UDP require a
private DN length, since each node requires an identification
code in the dialing string, which makes the DN length different
than for a public-routed call.
If you are networked using UDP:
•
you indicate a private DN length, which is the number of
digits required to access sets in the system (System
Programming/Dialing Plan/Private network)
•
each system has a unique location code (System
Programming/Dialing Plan/Private network)
•
you indicate that you are using a UDP dialing plan
(System Programming/Dialing Plan/Private
network)
•
you set up private access codes (Access codes/Private
access codes)
•
a telephone in another node is accessed using the access
codes, the location code, and the telephone DN.
Any programming for routing and access codes should be
carefully planned using the tables supplied with the
Programming Record. The settings for routing and destination
codes are fully explained in Services on page 381.
Note: Network access codes must not conflict with access
codes used for other purposes.

114 / Dialing plans
Dialing plan using public lines
Installer password required
For example, imagine that you have a system in a network of
three offices such as New York, Toronto, and Santa Clara.
If there is no routing, callers would have to dial this way:
•
A Norstar user in New York would have to select a line
pool and dial a number such as 1-416-555-3227 to reach
telephone 3227 in Toronto (416).
If there is routing:
•
you could create a destination code of 3, and create a route
that uses the proper line pool and DialOut. In this case, the
user simply dials 3227, the receiving telephone DN being
227.
In the DialOut, P stands for pause, a host system signaling
option. Press ≤‡° to insert a 1.5-second pause in the
dialing string. See the Modular ICS 7.1 System Coordinator
Guide for information about other signals.
Destination code numbering in a network
Because the system checks the initial digits of a call against the
routing tables, each type of internal or external call must begin
with a unique pattern of digits. The following table gives a
sample plan for how initial digits are assigned in a network of
systems with three-digit DNs.

In the table, 4 is used as the initial digit for the Coordinated

purpose.
For PRI you need to define a route with a routing code
(destination code), then assign that code to the telephone.
Dialing plan using E&M lines
Installer password required
By properly planning and programming routing tables and
destination codes, an installer can create a dialing plan where
E&M lines between Norstar systems are available to other
systems in the network
The following figure and programming chart shows how to
configure a transparent dialing plan for a network of three
Norstars over E&M lines.
•
Each system must be running the same version of
MICS 7.1 or MICS-XC 7.1 software.
•
Each system must be equipped with target lines and a
Trunk Module with an E&M/DISA Trunk cartridge or an
ICS with a DTI with at least one E&M line.

code 6, which places the call using Route 001.
There is no DialOut change to the number from New York, so
the call appears on the auto answer line on the Norstar in Santa
Clara as 6-221.
Because 6 is also a destination code on the Santa Clara system,
another call is placed using route 002 from Santa Clara. This
call arrives at the Toronto system, where the digits 6-221 are
interpreted as a target line received number. The call will now

example, system A, B, and C are all within the same area code.
System A has a line pool to Santa Clara, System B has a line
pool to Montreal, and system C has a line pool to Miami.
A Norstar user in system A can reach Miami by calling system
C and using that line pool to Miami.
To simplify access between Norstar systems, all line pools that
go to the same destination should have the same line pool
access code. For example, system A and system B both have a
line pool to Ottawa. You can configure both systems with the
same line pool access code for the Ottawa line pool.
A dialing plan similar to the one in the following figure allows
you to create a company directory that uses line pool access
codes and unique DNs of a uniform length.
For instance, the person on system A at telephone 234 can
press an Intercom button and dial 7434.
This means that telephone 234 has dialed the line pool access
code of the trunk to system C, and will receive the dial tone of
system C. The digits 434 then map to the Received number
434, and ring telephone 434 with an appearance of the
associated target line.
Tips - Network calls that use routes are subject to any
restriction filters that are in effect.
If the telephone used to make a network call has an
appearance of a line used by the route, the call will move from
the intercom button to the line button.
The telephone used to make a network call must have access
to the line pool used by the route.
Routes generally define the path between your Norstar switch
and another switch in your network, not other individual
telephones on that switch.

outgoing calls to the public network. In addition, employees at
each office often have to call colleagues in the other office. To
reduce long-distance costs, and to allow for a coordinated

handle inter-office traffic.
N0130943 01
Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide
122 / Dialing plans
If call-by-call services were not used, each Norstar system
might have to be equipped with the following trunks:
•
12 DID lines needed to handle peak incoming call traffic.
•
eight Tie (E&M) lines needed to handle inter-office calls.
•
eight lines needed to handle outgoing public calls
The total required is 28 lines. If the Norstar systems were using
T1 trunks, then two T1 spans would be required at each office.
Note that the total of 28 lines represents the worst case value
for line usage. In reality, the total number of lines in use at any
one time will generally be less than 28. For example, during
periods of peak incoming call traffic, the demand for outgoing
lines will be low.
With PRI call-by-call services, it is not necessary to configure
a fixed allocation of trunks. Each of the 23 lines on the PRI can
be used for DID, Tie, or outgoing public calls. This
consolidation means that it may be possible for each office to
use a single PRI span, rather than two T1 spans.
With PRI call-by-call services, the only limitation is that there
are no more than 23 calls in progress at any one time.
The dialing plan at each Norstar site is configured to determine
the call type based on the digits dialed by the user. If a user in
Toronto wishes to dial a colleague in New York, they dial the
four-digit private DN (such as 6221). The dialing plan
recognizes this as a private network DN, and routes the call
using Tie service with a private numbering plan.
Incoming Tie calls are routed to telephones based on the digits
received by the network, which in this case will be the fourdigit private DN.
If a user in either location wishes to dial an external number,
they dial 9, followed by the number (such as 9-555-1212). The
Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide
N0130943 01
Dialing plans / 123
dialing plan recognizes this as a public DN, and routes the call
using Public service.
Incoming DID calls will be routed to telephones based on the
trailing portion of the digits received by the network. For
example, if a public network user dials an employee in the
Toronto office, the network will deliver digits 4167632221.
Norstar will route the call using the last four digits, 2221.

PRI dialing plan example for two-way DID
The following list shows the steps involved in configuring a
dialing plan for two-way DID which uses a Public service. In
this example the user dials the prefix 8 to place a call over a
PRI line.
Note: Call-by-call is not needed to have two-way DID.
•
in Hardware programming, configure the DTI card (PRI)
to use a Public protocol
•
for incoming calls you need to program target lines to
match the DID digit that is being received on the PRI
interface
•
set Dial Out to None
•
select PRI-A as the line pool
•
set SrvcType to Public
•
in Services programming access Routing Service to
enter a Destination Code (8 in this example)
•
set the Absorb Length to All
•
the telephone that you are dialing out from must have
access to the PRI Pool (programmed in Terminals/Sets)
N0130943 01
Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide
126 / Dialing plans
•
define rec’d digits for target lines
•
define limits for incoming and outgoing public calls. Refer
to Programming Call by Call Limits on page 475
Static DID and two-way DID
When configuring static DID with two-way service, the
channels programmed as DID at the CO must be the lowest
B-channels on the PRI. On your Norstar system, the BchanSeq
mode must be set to descending. In this configuration, all
calls on the PRI must be Public service.
For example, channels 1 to 4 are configured as DID at the CO.
The CO uses ascending mode for B-channel selection, and the
ICS uses descending mode.

N0130943 01
Private networking using PRI SL-1 / 127
Private networking using PRI SL-1
You can use PRI SL-1 lines to tandem a number of Norstar
units into a private network. This creates a Private Network
Tandem Calling (PNTC) configuration. Refer to Private
Network Tandem calling on page 129.
You can also use PRI SL-1 lines to link one or more Norstar
systems to a Meridian 1 system, or to create a network that
includes one or more Business Communications Manager
systems. This creates an Advanced Private Network (APN)
where the MCDN protocol can be used to provide network
control features that allow network calls to be delivered and
transferred with optimum efficiency. If you also use a central
voice mail system or central Auto Attendant system off the
Meridian, MCDN provides system-wide Auto Attendant
features and line redirection. Refer to Advanced Private
Networking on page 138.
Tip - For Modular ICS 7.1 you require both a PRI software
key (profile 1, 3, and 4 only) and an MCDN software key to
perform SL-1 networking.
All Norstar systems in the network also must be running
MICS 7.1 or MICS-XC 7.1 or greater software.
SL-1 networking features
•
common dialing plan using a Uniform Dialing Plan
(UDP), or a Coordinated Dialing Plan (CDP)
Note: If Norstar voice mail or Auto Attendant is used as
the centralized voice mail system, CDP must be used.
•

•
no usage costs when placing remote calls over private

•
PSTN lines connected to one of the nodes in a network can
provide local public service, at local rates, to all nodes in
the network, regardless of location
Features specific to Advanced Private Network
•
centralized voice mail provides call waiting indications on
the receiving telephone
•
centralized voice mail provides common messages, callforwarding and transfer options to all networks. If you are
using the Meridian attendant system, the attendant console
on the Meridian system can use system-wide call parking
(camp-on) and break-in features.
•
if you have trunk route optimization (TRO) turned on, the
system optimizes call routing of redirected calls over the
private network
•
the Meridian PBX can handle both UDP and CDP, thus
providing more flexibility and less reprogramming when
networking existing systems. The Norstar Voice mail
system requires a CDP dialing plan when it is being used
for central call handling.
•
Trunk Anti-tromboning (TAT) provides network rerouting
that provides more efficient routing of calls to prevent
unnecessary tandeming and tromboning of trunks.
•
ISDN Call Connection Limitation (ICCL) piggybacks on
the call initiation request and acts as a check at transit PBX
points to prevent misconfigured routes or calls with errors
from blocking channels.

NCRI count allows a call to be forwarded in the network
up to five times before the system releases the call as
undeliverable. However if TAT or TRO occur, the counter
gets reset, as well. This counter is hard-coded.
Private Network Tandem calling
Tandem networking is a chained network established between
two or more MICS systems. All the systems are connected via
PRI SL-1 lines.
In the network example shown below, nodes A, B, and E are
in one location, Nodes C, D, and F are in a second location.
The two systems are tied together between nodes A and C.
Nodes A and C are also connected to the local public network.

Routing for tandem networks
In tandem networks each node needs to know how to route
calls that do not terminate locally. To do this, you set up routes
for each connecting node by defining destination codes for
each route.
If the node is also connected to the public network, the usual
routing is required for that connection.
The following examples show the routing tables for Node A
and Node C for externally-terminating calls.
Note: The PRI lines are enbloc lines, so all dialed digits are
collected before being dialed out.

138 / Private networking using PRI SL-1
Advanced Private Networking
There are two ways of setting up dialing plans for an
Advanced Private Network (APN).
•
The first method uses routing tables to interconnected
systems. This type of network may use SL-1 lines, but it
does not use the MCDN protocol, even though the MCDN
keycode is required to allow the use of PRI SL-1 lines.
•
The second method allows you to network among other
Norstar systems, Meridian systems, and Business
Communications Manager systems using SL-1 lines and
the MCDN protocol. This system uses the private dialing
plans in the same way as the Private Network Tandem
Calling network does. However, if you are using a Norstar
to support your central voice mail or call attendant, you
must use a CDP dialing plan. The MCDN protocol
provides additional features that support the central voice
mail/Auto Attendant as well as system call routing.
Networking using routing codes
If you have a simple private network, composed of one central
Meridian 1 and two smaller sites with Norstar systems, you
can use routing codes to direct calls. The following example
shows a Meridian 1, representing the head office, connected to
several smaller branch offices.
In this network, only the head office has trunks connected to
the public network. The branch offices access the public
network via the private connection to the head office. This
configuration allows for cost savings by consolidating the
public access trunks. Users at all three locations access the
public network by dialing 9, followed by the public number.
Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide
N0130943 01
Private networking using PRI SL-1 / 139
For example, a user in the west end branch might dial 9-5551212 (for a local call) or 9-1-613-555-1212 (for a long distance
call). These public calls are routed to the Meridian 1 by the
Norstar routing table. Routing tables at the Meridian 1 will
then select an appropriate public facility for the call.
Private network calls are made by dialing a four-digit private
network DN. For example, if a user in the west end branch
wishes to call a user in the east end branch within the private
network, they dial 6221.

Additional Configuration
In this example, outgoing public network calls dialed from a
Norstar telephone are passed to the Meridian 1, and the
Meridian 1 is responsible for seizing a public trunk. For this
reason, the 9 prefix is left in the number passed to the
Meridian 1.
This necessitates modifying the Public DN lengths table on
each Norstar to account for the extra leading digit. Essentially,
the eight pre-configured entries are modified to include a
leading 9 in the prefix digits, and the length value for each
entry is increased by one.
The new entries are listed below.

Carrier codes:
If a system has a different long-distance service from the local
service, or if the long-distance service changes within the
schedules, the routing tables can be set up to include a carrier
code. You define the code under System Programming/
Access codes/Carrier codes. You then refer this to the
routing tables in Services/Routing Service/route/

Carrier codes where you define it as part of the destination
code, or part or all of the DialOut string when you set up a
routing service schedule.
Meridian M1 Configuration:
•
Meridian M1 is the timing master for the private network
PRI connections.
•
Meridian M1 uses descending mode for PRI B-channel
selection.
•
The Meridian M1 must recognize calls dialed to 2xxx and
6xxx numbers, and route the call over PRI to either the
East or West end offices. The same applies to incoming
DID calls from the public network.
•
The Meridian M1 must recognize numbers starting with 9
as public numbers, whether the numbers are dialed by
Meridian M1 users or by Norstar users.

MCDN Private Networking
When you use MCDN on your private network, you gain the
advantages of being able to use a central voice mail/Auto
Attendant system to service the entire network, as well as
gaining advanced system network features, which keep
network traffic flowing along the most efficient paths.
MCDN networking uses PRI SL-1 lines and the MCDN
protocol firmware. You need keycodes for each of these
features.
To set up calling over an MCDN network, you define a dialing
plan that allows the user on any system to experience
consistent dialing strings for internal and external calls. For
this type of network, the DNs need to be the same length, but
they do not have to be unique to the entire network.
If your network is connected to a Meridian 1, and it is the
Meridian that you are using for centralized voice mail and
Auto Attendant, you can use either a UDP or CDP dialing
plan.
•
If you use UDP, you dial a unique location code with the
local telephone DN range.

In the case of CDP, the first digit of the DN range denotes
the node and is unique to each system.
However, if you are using a Norstar voice mail/Auto
Attendant for your centralized voice mail, you must create the
calling protocols on the network using CDP. This is a private
dialing plan where the first digit of the extensions for each
system is unique to that system, and all DNs on all systems are
the same length.

Network Call Redirection Information
NCRI builds on the following call features:
•
•
External Call Forward
Call Transfer
•
Call Forward
NCRI adds the ability to redirect a call across an MCDN
network using Call Forward (all calls, no answer, busy) and
Call Transfer features. The call destination also receives the
necessary redirection information. This feature allows the
system to automatically redirect calls from within a Norstar
system to the Meridian Mail system, which resides outside the
Norstar system on a Meridian 1 or another Norstar.
The figure below shows an example of this situation, where
user A calls user B on the same Norstar system. If user B is
busy or not answering, the call automatically gets transferred
to a Meridian Mail number (user C) across an MCDN link
between the Norstar system and the Meridian 1 system (or
another Norstar system) where the mailboxes are set up.

ISDN Call Connection Limitation
The ICCL feature piggybacks on the call initiation request and
acts as a check at transit PBX points to prevent misconfigured
routes or calls with errors from blocking channels.
This feature adds a transit/tandem counter to a call setup
message. This counter is compared at each transit PBX with a
value programmed into the transit PBX, in a range from 0 to
31. If the call setup counter is higher than the PBX value, the
call will be blocked at the PBX and cleared back to the
network. This prevents calls from creating loops that tie up
lines.
Norstar configurations:
•

Trunk Route Optimization
TRO finds the most direct route through the network to send a
call between nodes. This function occurs during the initial
alerting phase of a call.
Business Communications Manager configurations:
•
Under Network Settings, MCDN, set TRO to Y(yes).
•
Configure call routing for all optimal routes.
•
Configure Call Forward (All Calls, No Answer, Busy) or
Selective Line Redirection to use the optimal routes.
This feature avoids the following situation: A call originating
from a Norstar system may be networked to a Meridian
system, which, in turn, is networked to another Meridian
system, which is the destination for the call. If the call routes
through the first Meridian (M1) to reach the second Meridian
(M2), two trunks are required for the call. An optimal choice
is a straight connection to M2. TRO finds these connections
and overrides the less-efficient setup.
The following figure shows two call paths. The first route,
through the Meridian, demonstrates how a call might route if
TRO is not active. The second route, that bypasses the
Meridian, demonstrates how TRO selects the optimum routing
for a call.

Camp-on
A call received by the Meridian attendant can be assigned to a
telephone anywhere in the MCDN network, when the
following situations are valid:
Attendant tip - If the target telephone is busy, and is
not forwarded to a prime telephone, the attendant receives a
tone. If the camp-on is successful, there is no tone. However,
due to the delay within the target system in determining if the
telephone is busy and if the call will be transferred to a prime
set, the Meridian attendant needs to wait about five seconds
after attempting to camp a call before hanging up. Otherwise,
the call will be lost if the telephone is busy.

•
choose to reject the call, using F814
•
indicate Do Not Disturb, using F85.

Break-in
The Meridian attendant can break into an on-going call from a
telephone in the Norstar system, if these situations are valid:
Break-in can occur when these situations are valid:
•
Target Norstar telephone is busy but still has a free
intercom or line key.
•
•
There is no camped call on the target telephone.
DND busy is turned on, although the attendant can
override a busy signal, if it is turned off, by pressing the
BKI key.
•
Prime set is also busy, with no free key, and with DND
turned on.
•
Attendant capability (intrusion) is high (2), and higher than
either the target telephone or the caller the target telephone
owner is busy with.
A warning tone occurs for both parties on the call before the
actual break-in occurs.

You can set a level of priority that will determine if a telephone
will allow an attendant to break in. This is referred to as setting
the Intrusion level.
How the intrusion hierarchy works:
•
Break-in is allowed if Attendant telephone is High and
caller telephone is Medium.
•

Central voice mail and Auto Attendant with
Norstar
You can use Norstar voice mail (NVM) and Auto Attendant
running on a Norstar Application module (NAM) platform as
the central voice mail/auto attendant node for your MCDN
network. However, this configuration does not allow
centralized camp-on or break-in, since these are Meridianvoicemail-based features.
Using NVM requires that all nodes on the network are set up
with the CDP dialing rules. You can have a maximum of 10
nodes on a Norstar-based network if you use all three DTI
cartridges.
Note: Ensure you have the latest version of NVM if you want
to set up this type of centralized system.

Using centralized voice mail
If you use NVM, ensure that you provide the correct user cards
for system access. Users with telephones connected to the
Meridian or Norstar unit on which NVM is installed, use
internal voice mail feature codes to use the system
(FEATURE 981, and so on). Users on other nodes of the
system, use the remote access codes, which are similar to the
codes they would use if the central voice mail system was the
Meridian-based system.
Note: Meridian mail and Norstar voice mail can co-exist on
the same Meridian, however, users can only be
configured for one of the systems.
Configuring Centralized Auto Attendant (CAA)
System configuration for centralized Auto Attendant depends
on where the NAM is connected. The system with the NAM is
configured using the CAA DN and a target line. The systems
that are remote to the NAM are configured through the

186 / ETSI, MCDN and Network features
ETSI, MCDN and Network features
If your system is running Profile 2, and you are using ETSI
PRI lines with SL-1 MCDN protocol to network your systems,
your network has access to all the MCDN features described
in the preceding sections, starting with "Private networking
using PRI SL-1" on page 127. MCDN features are set up under
Network Features, MCDN.
In addition, ETSI lines can provide the following CO network
features. Availability of these features is first determined by
your service provider, and secondly by turning on the features
under Network Features, ETSI.
TIP - In version 6.1 or newer software you do not
require a PRI keycode to use ETSI PRI lines, however,
if you want to the line to use the ETSI MCDN features,
you must obtain and enter an MCDN keycode.
Network Call Diversion
Norstar Network Call Diversion (NCD) is a network function
that allows forwarding and redirection of calls outside the
Norstar network when using an ETSI ISDN line. Functionality
is similar to that of External Call Forward (ECF).
NCD redirects calls using the same line on which they arrive.
Call forward is efficient since there is no need for additional
outside lines.
Forwarding calls externally from an extension requires the
user to enter either a Destination Code or Line Pool Access
Code, and the number to which calls will be forwarded.
Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide
N0130943 01
ETSI, MCDN and Network features / 187
Examples of NCD include:
•
redirecting all calls from an extension to a mobile phone
•
forwarding calls to an external destination (rather than to
voicemail), when an extension is busy or the user is
unavailable.
Allowing NCD
Installer password required
To use NCD, you must turn the feature on in Network
Services.
1. Press ‘ until the display reads System
prgrming.
2. Press ≠. The display shows Hunt groups.
3. Press ‘ until the display shows Network
Services.
4. Press ≠. The display shows Netwrk
Redirection: N.
5. Press CHANGE and set to Y (yes).
Feature description
NCD is available only over ETSI ISDN lines. It can be
invoked when calls are presented to Norstar/BST extensions
over ISDN lines. The user must program the selected
extension. Refer to External call forwarding on page 61
NCD is integrated with the following existing Norstar Call
Forward features:
•
N0130943 01
Call Forward Unconditional (CFU)—implemented on
Norstar Call Forward All Calls (CFAC) ≤›, and
Selective Line Redirection (SLR) ≤ ° ›, also
Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide
188 / ETSI, MCDN and Network features
referred to as Line Redirection. This is programmable by
the user.
•
Call Forward on Busy (CFB)—implemented on Norstar
Call Forward Busy.
•
Call Forward on No Response (CFNR)—implemented on
Norstar Call Forward No Answer.
Programming and restrictions
NCD features are accessed through existing Norstar features.
Extensions requiring redirection must be programmed
individually to either CFAC or SLR. CFB or CFNA must be
set during programming. Allow redirect must be set to Yes
for each extension, in Terminals&Extns/Capabilities.
Note: Any other programming applied to specific lines and
extensions take precedence, for example
Restrictions(extns) under Terminals&Extns.
NCD is used as long as the affected lines are ETSI ISDN, and
the affected DIA lines are accessible via ISDN lines. Incoming
calls are diverted back to the ISDN. If NCD fails due to
network errors, ECF is invoked. If ECF cannot be executed,
the incoming call is routed to the prime extension for the line.
ATTENTION!
If a line is configured to appear on several
extensions with redirection programmed,
predicting which extension will divert the call is not
possible. This should be considered during system
configuration.
An extension with CFB, CFNA and CFAC programmed will
give priority to CFAC for diversion.
Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide
N0130943 01
ETSI, MCDN and Network features / 189
Selective Line Redirection
Selective Line Redirection (SLR), also referred to as Line
Redirection, is enhanced for use with digital lines and operates
in conjunction with NCD.
Diversion by SLR takes precedence over diversion by CFAC.
An SLR line cannot be diverted by CFAC. If the call arrives
on an extension with SLR programmed, a ring splash will
sound (if programmed).
For information about SLR restrictions, refer to Selective Line
Redirection on page 189. For information about redirecting
lines, see Line Redirection in the Modular Plus System
Administration Guide.
Programming Extensions
The User Interface for programming NCD is the same as for
ECF.
Different types of Call Forward are available depending on the
extension being programmed. Programming an extension to
forward calls externally requires the user to enter a destination
code or line pool number, in addition to the external phone
number. Therefore, care should be taken to identify your
network line types and record the available codes and line
pools.
Enhanced Caller ID
When a Norstar/BST extension which has Call Line Identifier
(CLID) active receives a redirected call due to NCD, the user
will see the DN for the Calling Number. This is followed by a
“>” and the redirecting number. This is displayed for as long
as the call is active (alerting or answered) at that telephone.
N0130943 01
Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide
190 / ETSI, MCDN and Network features
If the alerting extension is not the CLID extension for that line,
the line appearance can be pressed to briefly display the
information. Pressing ≤°⁄⁄ or INFO while the call is
active invokes Call Info. Call Info on MCDN SL-1 displays
the redirecting number and the reason for the redirection.
Note: When Norstar requests that an incoming call be
redirected by the distance network, Norstar does not
inform the network of the redirecting DN. In this case,
the diverted-to party will not see the diverting party
DN.
Malicious caller identification (MCID)
The MCID feature allows you to use ≤°·‡ to have
call information recorded on the central office system for an
incoming call on a specific line (EURO ISDN lines, only).
The user must invoke the feature code without hanging up, and
within 30 seconds (time varies on different networks) after the
caller hangs up.
Note: This feature must be supplied by your service provided
and allowed in network programming to work. Check
with your system administrator.
The following information registers on the network:
•
called party number
•
•
calling party number

desktop ISDN terminals.
•
Desktop conferencing: ISDN allows computer users in
distant locations to share and edit any image, data or text
file on their own computer screens while they discuss the
information.
•
File transfer: The ISDN network allows you to transfer
files containing data, text, images, data, or audio clips,
faster and cheaper than with a conventional modem.
•
Telecommuting: Convenient retrieval, processing and
storage of files is possible for the employee working at
home by using ISDN lines to give high-speed access to
information resources at the office.

•
Remote LAN access: ISDN provides an affordable and
fast means for employees at remote sites, such as at home
or in branch offices, to access local area networks (LANs).
•
Leased line backup: Essential backup for leased lines can
be provided using ISDN, as required, rather than
duplicating costly permanent leased lines.
•
LAN to LAN bridging: Local area network (LAN)
bridge/routers allow flexible interconnection between
LANs using ISDN, with charges only incurred when
information is actually transmitted.
•
Internet and database access: The fast call set up and
high bandwidth of ISDN are ideal for accessing
information services such as the Internet and databases.

Planning the installation
Only qualified persons should service the system.
The installation and servicing of this unit is to be
performed only by service personnel having
appropriate training and experience. It is critical that
installers have the necessary awareness about
hazards to which they are exposed in performing a
task, and of the measures required to minimize the
danger to themselves or other persons.
Electrical shock hazards from the telecommunication
network and AC mains are possible with this
equipment. To minimize risk to service personnel and
users, the ICS must be connected to an outlet with a
third-wire ground. In addition, all unused slots should
have filler faceplates installed and the doors should be
in place at the completion of any servicing.
Service personnel must be alert to the possibility of high
leakage currents becoming available on metal system
surfaces during power line fault events near network
lines. A risk point on the ICS is the power cord earth
ground pin. These leakage currents normally safely
flow to Protective Earth ground via the power cord.
Therefore, it is mandatory that connection to a
grounded outlet is performed first and removed last
when cabling the unit. Specifically, operations requiring
the unit to be powered down must have the network
connections (central office lines) removed first.

Upgrading your Norstar system
What procedure you use to upgrade your Norstar system will
depend on the version of MICS software to which you are
upgrading.
Upgrade note for MICs 7.1: Direct upgrades to MICS 7.1 are only supported from
systems running MICS 6.1 or 7.0 software.
Upgrade notes:
•
When you are upgrading from a 4.1 or later system, ensure
that you have a release version 2 NVRAM cartridge.
•
When making simultaneous hardware and software
upgrades (e.g. 12-port expansion plus a MICS 7.1 software
upgrade), upgrade your software release before making
your hardware upgrades.
•
Ensure that you power up the system after the new
software has been installed, but before any new hardware
is added. Upgrading in this order maintains your 0X32 ICS
programming data for use with MICS 7.1 and
MICS-XC 7.1.
•
If you are upgrading to 6.0 or 6.1 software, note that line
renumbering will occur. Refer to the wiring charts in
Wiring charts on page 260 for changes. This renumbering
will also affect DN and mailbox numbering for any voice
mail or CallPilot applications you have running on your
system.
N0130943 01
Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide
208 / Planning the installation
•
When you upgrade to a 7.1 system, target lines are
increased on mega systems by 32. Also on Mega systems,
you can now install digital telephones on station modules
installed in ports 13 and 14. Each slot supports 16 new
terminal numbers.
When upgrading, Call Log information may be
lost.
During a system restart, Call Log information is
not saved. Make sure to notify users if a system
restart is planned so any log information can be
recorded first.
A loss of UTAM information occurs when
upgrading US MICS-XC systems.
UTAM Recovery Codes are required. If you are
upgrading the system to include Companion
components.

software, with the following exceptions:
• all system passwords are returned to the
system defaults
• ATA ans timer setting is returned to the system
default setting
There will be line renumbering on systems
upgraded from software versions previous to 6.0.
When upgrading from MICS 1.1, note that the
Call log space has increased in newer
versions.
Reallocate log space after upgrading.
Ensure that you maintain an accurate record of your existing
system programming so that you can plan your new system
programming appropriately.
If you have a Norstar system with a Modular 8X24 Key
Service Unit (KSU), you cannot upgrade your software with
the Upgrade Tool. If you want to upgrade to MICS 7.1, you
must replace your older Modular 8X24 KSU with the current
0X32 ICS (Integrated Communication System), and then
program the system.

Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide
210 / Planning the installation
If you have a Norstar system with a Modular 0X32 ICS, you
can use your ICS with the new MICS 7.1 and MICS-XC 7.1
software.
About the MICS NVRAM cartridge:
Do not install a MICS NVRAM cartridge from
other MICS 7.1 systems. This will cause all the
programming to be lost.
Do not attempt to use the MICS NVRAM
cartridge as stored data transfer. This will cause
the system to cold start.
The NVRAM assembly cartridge has a slot for a credit-card
size PC-card, which are also referred to as Flash cards. These
cards contain the system software and accommodate future
system memory requirements and software downloading.
Upgrade systems previous to MICS 6.1 to 7.1 using the
upgrade tool
To maintain your system information during the upgrade, you
need to use a two or three-step upgrade process using the
Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide

upgrade tool kit.Note: The MICS 7.1 software cartridge is
not part of this tool kit.
Warning: If you do not run the upgrade tool
If your system is running ICS software prior to
version 6.1 and you do not use the appropriate
upgrade tools before you insert the ICS version
7.1 software cartridge, the upgrade will not
complete and all the sets connected to the system
will flash indefinitely. To upgrade MICS version
1.0 through 4.0 use the 4.1 upgrade tool. To
upgrade MICS 4.1 through 6.1 only the 6.1
upgrade tool is required.
Warning: If you do not use the correct system
variant of upgrade tool and 7.1 software
If you do not use the correct variant of upgrade
tools and 7.1 software, the system will cold start
and you will need to reconfigure your system.
When making simultaneous hardware and software upgrades,
upgrade your software release first, before making any
hardware upgrades. Ensure that you power up the system after

Trunk and Station Modules
If you are not adding digital T1 trunks to your system, or
expanding to a mega configuration, you may reuse your
existing copper Trunk and/or Station Modules with the
Modular 0X32 ICS in MICS 7.1/XC 7.1. One 6-port copper
expansion cartridge can be supported on the maxi
configuration.
If you are adding digital T1 trunks to your system or
expanding to a mega configuration, you must replace any
copper Trunk and/or Station Modules with the new modules
that have fiber connectors, and use a new fiber Expansion
Cartridge in the ICS. You can reuse your old Trunk Cartridges
in the new Trunk Module with fiber connectors.
Trunk modules cannot be installed on the second expansion
(6-port) cartridge. You must relocate station modules to the
second expansion cartridge to free up ports on the first 6-port
expansion cartridge.

Off-core DTI card
MICS 6.0 introduced the opportunity to expand the number of
DTI cards in a system running Profile 1 or 4 by adding a DTI
card to the expansion modules in a midi or maxi system. The
card must be installed in either module 3 or 4 on a midi system.
On the maxi system, the card can only be installed in module
7 or 8. One DTI card requires the entire module resources, so
it is installed in the first slot of the module, and the other two
slots must be left empty. Ensure these slots are covered with a

11. If your system includes Trunk Modules and or Station
Modules with DS-30 copper connectors, reconnect the
fiber interface cables to the Expansion Cartridge.
12. Power up the system.
13. Reconnect your 50-pin connector for internal telephones to
the internal telephone connector on the ICS.
14. Reconnect your external line and auxiliary equipment
wiring according to the procedures and wiring charts in the
Installation on page 227. You cannot reuse your original
50-pin connector for external lines and auxiliary
equipment, because the pin-outs have changed (unless
connections are rewired).
DNs on Station Modules will change
If you simply reconnect the 50-pin connector for
telephones on the ICS, and leave your Station
Modules telephone connectors alone, your
directory numbers will change.
The new 0X32 ICS can accommodate 32
telephones. The old 8X24 KSU connected only
24 telephones. Port numbering has been
changed accordingly.
To preserve existing directory numbers consult
the wiring charts in Connecting the wiring on
page 255 and change the DNs using Change DNs
in System prgrming.

Trunk module line numbering
In MICS 6.0/MICS-XC 6.0 software, the line numbering for
all profiles was adjusted to accommodate the Profile 2 ETSI
requirement of 30 lines. The chart below shows the line
numbering transitions between the various versions of
software. Note also that target lines have been renumbered.
If you are upgrading to version 7.1 from a 6.0 system, no line
programming changes are required, however, note that an
additional 32 target lines have been added for Mega systems.
However, if you are upgrading from a system version previous
to 6.0, you will need to note the line changes and make the
programming adjustments.
Note: Line numbering varies, depending on the profile you
choose for your system, which type of trunk module
you are using, or what protocol you choose for the
module (DTI). Refer to TrunkMod on page 507.

Upgrading ILG functionality with hunt groups
In MICS 4.0, Hunt groups replaced ILG functions from
previous versions of MICS. The hunt group broadcast mode
contains the equivalent of ILG functionality.
Hunt groups allow the following call programming:
•
calls can be queued when all the members in a hunt group
are busy
•
call forwards are overridden by the hunt group routing,
allowing calls to be distributed to other members in the
hunt group in a way that does not depend on the busy
situation of its members
•
the ring / call distribution pattern can be programmed to
determine who receives what call and in what order
•
an overflow position can be programmed to another hunt
group
•
sequential and rotary modes are also available to provide
versatility to hunt group configurations

Planning Hospitality functions
MICS 4.1 introduced the Hospitality feature, which allows
businesses such as hotels to monitor and set room conditions
and status, and to program alarms from both an administrative
telephone and individual room telephones.
Hospitality features allow the following programming:
•
Administrative telephone (password access)
– monitor and set room condition
– monitor and set room occupancy
– monitor and set or cancel alarms
•
Room telephone
– Allow staff to set room condition (password access)
– Allow guests to set or cancel wakeup alarms

Installation
Only qualified persons should service the system.
The installation and service of this unit is to be
performed only by service personnel having appropriate
training and experience. It is critical that installers have
the necessary awareness about hazards to which they
are exposed in performing a task, and of the measures
required to minimize the danger to themselves or other
persons.
Electrical shock hazards from the telecommunication
network and AC mains are possible with this equipment.
To minimize risk to service personnel and users, the
ICS must be connected to an outlet with a third-wire
ground. In addition, all unused slots should have filler
faceplates installed and the doors should be in place at
the completion of any servicing.
Service personnel must be alert to the possibility of high
leakage currents becoming available on metal system
surfaces during power line fault events near network
lines. A risk point on the ICS is the power cord earth
ground pin. These leakage currents normally safely flow
to Protective Earth ground via the power cord.
Therefore, it is mandatory that connection to a grounded
outlet is performed first and removed last when cabling
to the unit. Specifically, operations requiring the unit to
be powered down must have the network connections
(central office lines) removed first.

Testing the ISDN BRI network connection
Before you install a Norstar system which uses BRI cards you
should test your connection to the ISDN network.
If you are installing a system which connects to the network
using BRI-ST cards, the network connection must be equipped
with an NT1. See the ISDN chapter and the wiring information
in this chapter for more information about installing an NT1.
To test the ISDN BRI connection:
1. Connect ISDN terminal equipment (TE) that conforms to
Bellcore standard to your central office ISDN jack or NT1.
U interface TE can connect directly to the central office
jack. S interface TE connect to the central office through
an NT1.
2. Program the TE with the appropriate switch type, service
profile identifier (SPID), and Network directory number
(DN) using the instructions that come with the TE.
3. Check for dial tone, then place a call and verify the quality
and clarity of the connection. If there is a problem, contact
your service provider.
4. Repeat steps one through three for each network
connection.

be supported for that Trunk Module.
Terminating resistors on BRI-ST Cards
The standard ISDN user-network interface wiring requires
terminating resistors at each end of the loop for point-to-point
operation. This ensures correct timing of the signaling circuits.
Loop termination can be provided at either the point where the
ISDN terminal is attached, or by the device attached to the
loop which has built-in termination. Because the Modular ICS
is usually at one end of the loop, the BRI-ST card is shipped
with termination built-in for each ISDN loop. It is ready to be
used where the ICS is located at one end of the loop, as in the
following illustration:

Using the fiber cable management system
To facilitate the installation of systems using fiber cables, the
Fiber Cable Management System ensures that power cords are
located outside of the cable tray. It also ensures that a 2.6 cm
(1 in.) space exists between the ICS module and other
modules.
The following hardware components are used in the Fiber
Cable Management System:
•
Fiber Comb (one per system): The Fiber Comb, is
installed, using an adhesive back, on the ICS, below the
fiber expansion cartridges. The Fiber Comb keeps the fiber
cable in place and prevents the cables from being pinched
between doors. Use the comb to keep fiber cables
organized as they are routed to each Station Module, as
shown in the 12-port example below.

system.
Connecting the wiring to the distribution panel
1. Route the cables through the hole in the ICS cable trough
to the distribution panel.
2. Bundle the cables with cable ties and secure them to the
wall to support their weight.
3. Connect the telephone and auxiliary equipment wires to
the appropriate pins on the distribution block (refer to the
wiring charts).
Note: If you are installing M7324+CAP module central
answering positions (CAPs), install the four-wire cable
that comes with the SAP for each instance this is required.
4. Cross-connect the ICS telephone and auxiliary equipment
wiring.
5. Connect the Station Module telephone wiring to the
corresponding station pins.
6. Using a single pair of wires for each telephone, connect
each of the telephones according to the wiring charts.
Note: If you are installing M7324+CAP module CAPs, the
SAPS connects to the second pair of wires in the four-wire
pair provisioned for each CAP that requires SAPS support.
7. Cross-connect the external lines to the distribution block
— loop start, E&M, DID, BRI. Refer to the wiring charts.
8. The DTI is equipped with an internal channel service unit
(CSU). You can connect the DTI directly to the
termination point provided by your T1 or PRI service

provider. If you disable the internal CSU, you can connect
the DTI to an external CSU or multiplexer.
The DTI does not provide the DC connection required for
through-fed repeaters. If through-fed repeaters are used on
the T1 or PRI span, disable the internal CSU and connect
the DTI to an external CSU.

Wiring charts
Port numbering on the wiring charts
The port number listed on the wiring charts is useful in
tracking down faults during a maintenance session where error
codes appear on the alarm telephone display. Refer to Alarm
codes on page 548.
The port numbers (for example: XX12) on the Trunk Cartridge
and Station Module wiring charts have two components:
•
•
XX corresponds to the number that appears on the face of
the Expansion Cartridge port that the Trunk Module or
Station Module is connected to.
digits (for example, 01 or 12) identify an individual port
number associated with that module.
For example:
The code 812 appearing as part of an error message for a Trunk
Module indicates that the problem is with Expansion Cartridge
port #8 and internal port 12. The corresponding Trunk Module
pins on the distribution block are pin 47 (violet-orange) and
pin 22 (orange-violet).
Integrated Communications System (ICS)
In the charts on the following pages, notice that the ICS has
two internal modules, ICS #1 and ICS #2. ICS #1 handles
telephones and auxiliary equipment. ICS #2 handles lines.
B1 and B2 directory numbers
The terms B1 and B2 correspond to channels on Norstar for
transmitting voice and data. Each DN port number has a
B1 DN and a B2 DN. Devices such as the Norstar and
Business Series telephones use only the B1 DN. Other devices
may need both B1 and B2 channels, requiring B1 and B2 DNs.

Tips - Depending on your system configuration, BRI-ST,
BRI-U2, and BRI-U4 cards can only reside in certain trunk
modules.
On a Midi system, the cards must be in trunk modules 03 or 04.
On a Maxi or Mega system, the cards must be in trunk modules
07 or 08. The cards can reside in the ICS regardless of system
size.
The Mega system can support up to 10 station modules on the
12-port expansion module. Note that the port numbers on
modules 13 and 14 also start with 12, even though they are on
separate ports.
Port 3 is the bottom fiber cable port on both the two-port and
the six-port Expansion Cartridge in slot 2. Port 9 is the bottom
fiber cable port located on the left most expansion card in slot
1.
(continued)
B1 and B2 directory numbers reflect the default numbering
scheme.
If you expand your system after initial installation and
programming, there may appear to be gaps in your B1 DN
numbering. This is because the system has already assigned
DN numbers to B2 channels. You can correct these gaps by
performing Startup programming and resetting the system
memory, or by changing the individual DNs. See Change DNs
under System prgrming.
Startup programming erases the system
memory.

BRI Wiring charts
A BRI Card in Slot 4 uses loops 201 through 204. A BRI card
in Slot 3 uses loops 225 through 228 (profile 1, 3, or 4) or 231238 (profile 2). Because a BRI-U2 Card has only two loops, it
only uses the first two loop numbers 201-202 and 225-226,
(profile 1, 3, or 4) or 231-232 (profile 2) when it occupies an
ICS slot.
The loops appearing on a BRI card may be automatically
assigned lines, or you can assign one or more ISDN DNs under
N0130943 01
Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide
270 / Connecting the wiring
Hardware. If the loop is configured as T or NT, lines are
automatically assigned. If the loop is configured as S or LT,
you can assign one or more ISDN DNs to the loop.
The emergency telephone connections (ET2 and ET1) cannot
be used if a BRI card is installed in Slot 3 or Slot 4.
For more information about configuring BRI cards refer to
BRI Card on page 65 in Welcome to ISDN and BRI card on
page 511 in Hardware.

BRI U wiring is not polarity sensitive.
Wiring the BRI network interface
A network interface provides the connection between the
ISDN network and the Modular ICS.
If the card in the ICS is configured as a T-loop, the ICS is
wired to the network connection using an NT1.
See T reference points on page 68 for more information about
the NT1.

Connecting the wiring / 277
The Modular ICS supplies the NT1 functionality to a U-NT
loop, allowing a direct connection to the network. The
connection may use a plug and jack, or may be directly wired.

T and R represent station connections and should not be confused with Tip and Ring on external lines. Station connections are non-polarized.
For an explanation about port numbering, see Port numbering on the wiring charts on page 260.
Note: Central Answering Positions (CAPs) that require a station auxiliary power supply (SAPS) must be connected with
a four-wire cord, as the SAPS is connected to the second wire pair. This includes any 7324 digital phone and CAP module combination, and any 7316E digital phone attached to more than 4 KIMs. Refer to the SAPS installation card for detailed installation instructions.
Nortel Networks Digital Mobility Controller 080/085 only require a maximum of eight pairs on a digital connector. The
remaining pairs can be connected to other digital system telephones.

E&M/DISA Trunk Cartridge wiring chart
Use the table, Trunk Module with E&M/DISA Trunk
Cartridges, on page 282 when a Trunk Module has only
E&M/DISA Trunk Cartridges.
If the Norstar system is being connected to another Norstar
system or private branch exchange by connecting two RJ2HX/
CA2HA distribution blocks together, use the following table
to determine the required cross-connections.

Tips - When installing a mixture of E&M/DISA, DID, BRI,
or Loop Start Trunk Cartridges, it is important to crossconnect the wiring for each type of TC to a separate
distribution block.
To verify the operation of the Norstar E&M cards and the
target lines, wire the two E&M lines on the Norstar E&M back
to back.
The cross-connections to each distribution block must always
begin at pins 26 and 1. To retain emergency telephone function
(when it is available on the trunk module), install a Loop Start
Trunk Cartridge in the left-most slot (slot 1) of the TM.

For an explanation about port numbering, see Port numbering on the wiring charts on page 260.
For CCI connections in Service column: NC1 stands for the normally closed relay and Com1, the common relay.
CCI signaling is not supported by all carriers. For carriers or installations that do not use CCI signaling, the CCI and ET
connections should be treated as “no connection”. CCI wiring is a non-standard wiring arrangement which has been
submitted to the DOC.
DID supervisory signaling
This equipment returns supervisory signals to the public
switched telephone network (PSTN) when the DID calls are:
•
•
•
•
answered by the called telephone
answered by the attendant
routed to a customer controlled recorded announcement
routed to a dial prompt
This equipment is designed to return supervisory signals on all
DID calls forwarded through the system back to the PSTN
within 20 seconds of call forwarding being initiated.
Emergency transfer conditions
Every DID Trunk Cartridge has a Control Circuit Interface
(CCI) which should be connected directly to the central office
for monitoring purposes.
If the Norstar system loses power or the microcontroller on the
DID Trunk Cartridge malfunctions, the CCI signals the central
office that it can no longer handle DID calls. The central
N0130943 01

286 / Connecting the wiring
office, by prearrangement, then forwards the DID lines to
other numbers.
Connect the CCI com1 connection to a ground connection.
Connect the CCI NC1 connection to the central office
demarcation.
Tips - CCI signaling to report power loss or malfunction
of the DID Trunk Cartridge is not supported by all carriers.
For carriers or installations which do not use CCI signaling,
the CCI and ET connections are treated as not connected.
Wire each CCI independently to the central office. If the
connections are wired in parallel, any CCI trouble disables all
DID Trunk Cartridges. If the connections are wired in series,
all DID Trunk Cartridges must fail before the central office
recognizes the trouble condition.

Emergency telephone / 291
Emergency telephone
You can connect an emergency telephone to an ICS or Trunk
Module (TM) with a Loop Start Trunk Cartridge to provide
emergency service when there is no power to the ICS. The ICS
has emergency telephone connections for lines 002 and 026
(profile 1, 3 and 4) or 002 to 030 (profile 2). Each Trunk
Module has one emergency telephone connection.
These versions of the Global Trunk module
do not support emergency telephones:
NTBB1202 TM With Auto Ranging power supply.
NTBB20AD-93 UK Class B TM
NTBB20AE-93 Australia TM
NTBB20FD-93 Eng/Fr TM
NTBB20FF-93 Cala TM
NTBB20FG-93 International TM
1. Wire a modular jack or equivalent to each set of
emergency telephone pins on the 50-pin distribution block
for the ICS or Trunk Module external lines.
Refer to Wiring charts on page 260 for the pin numbers.
2. Connect a single-line telephone (500/2500) to the modular
jack.
3. Prepare to test the emergency telephone by removing the
Trunk Cartridge from the slot (slot 3 or 4 on the ICS, and
slot 1 on the TM).
4. Connect the power, then connect the central office lines to
the ICS.
5. Pick up the emergency telephone receiver and listen for
dial tone.
N0130943 01
Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide
292 / Emergency telephone
6. Disconnect the central office lines, then remove power
from the system.
7. Replace the Trunk Cartridge in the left slot.
8. Continue with procedures for powering up the system.
Tips - The emergency telephone connections on the Trunk
Module will not work if there is an E&M/DISA, a BRI-ST or
BRI-U card, or a DID Trunk Cartridge in the first slot of the
Trunk Module. The emergency telephone connections on the
ICS will not work if DTIs or PRIs are used.
Tips - system digital telephones cannot be used as offpremise telephones (OPX). For OPX applications, use the
Norstar Analog Terminal Adapter (ATA2) and a single-line
telephone. Refer to the ATA Installation Card for details.

N0130943 01
Moving telephones / 293
Moving telephones
You can move a system telephone to a new location within the
Norstar system without losing the programmed settings.
When Set relocation is enabled in system programming,
the internal numbers, autodial settings, and personal speed dial
codes remain with the telephone when it is unplugged.
To move a telephone, simply unplug it and plug it in again at
another location. It may take up to 45 seconds for the ICS to
recognize the telephone. Automatic telephone relocation is
disabled by default.
Tips - Relocate the disconnected system telephone before
connecting a new telephone into the vacated jack. This allows
the moved telephone to retain the programmed settings.
If a new telephone is plugged into the vacated jack before the
old telephone is reconnected at a new location, Norstar will
give the current telephone information to the new telephone.
The old telephone will no longer be recognized by the system.
When reprogramming the internal number of a telephone, wait
one minute after Automatic Telephone Relocation.
When you relocate a telephone, the telephone must remain
installed and connected in the new location for at least three
minutes for the programming relocation to be complete.
Moving the telephone again before the three-minute period
may result in losing the programming on the telephone.

S or T extension wiring configurations
The last connection on any ISDN S or T extension wiring must
have terminating resistors to ensure correct timing of the
signaling circuits. Failure to install terminating resistors will
degrade performance. Terminating resistors should not be
connected on a TE which is not the last connection on the loop.
Terminating resistors are provided on terminal equipment. See
the instructions that come with your TE for information about
how to enable or disable the termination, as required.
The maximum length of spur and ISDN connection cord
(the extension from the main line or bus) is 10 m (30 ft).
Refer to S reference point on page 67 and T reference points
on page 68 in the Welcome to ISDN chapter for information
about wiring arrangements for ISDN terminal equipment (TE)
on an S or T loop.
Additional power
A Norstar S or T-loop does not provide power on Power
Source 1 (PS1), Power Source (PS2), or Power Source or
Sink 3 (PS3). If you are installing ISDN terminal equipment at
the S-reference point, and the equipment requires additional
power on PS1, PS2, or PS3, then you can install a suitablyapproved power supply unit. See ANSI T1.605 or the
documentation that comes with your TE for details.
The Modular ICS does not require power on PS3.
Wiring arrangements using side circuits, also called phantom
circuits, may affect loop performance when they are used to
provide power to the TE (PS1). You must account for any
effects. For example, you may need to reduce the number of
TEs on a passive bus.

Powering up the system
1. Double-check all wiring before turning the system power
on. Ensure all outlets where you will plug in the modules
are non-switchable, third-wire ground AC outlets.
Do not connect central office line cables to the
modules until after the system power is on.
2. If you are installing a modular mobility system, ensure that
all base stations are installed and connected to the
appropriate modules.
3. Route the module power cords through the lower shelf of
the cable trough and out through the bottom of the ICS
cable trough.
4. Route the ICS power cord through the bottom of the ICS
cable trough.
Companion: Install Base Stations before powering
up the MICS-XC system.
5. Connect each power cord to an electrical outlet.
If you are using a power bar, plug the power cords into the
power bar, and then connect the power bar to the
AC outlet.
Do not fasten power supply cords.
Do not fasten the ICS power supply cord or module
power supply cords to any building surface, including
the backboard.
Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide
N0130943 01
Powering up the system / 301
Close and lock the ICS door.
Close and lock the ICS door after installation is
complete to avoid accidental shock and to provide
containment in the event of fire.
Check the power
After the power is supplied, the ICS power supply LEDs will
light up green. If a BRI cartridge is installed, the LEDs on the
faceplate of the cartridge will flash for up to five minutes.
Telephones and lines also may take up to five minutes to
initialize.
1. Check that the power LEDs of the power supply, the TMs,
and the SMs are on.
2. If none of the LEDs are on, verify that power is present at
the outlet. If there is power at the outlet, see Problems for
network or remote users on page 621.
Tips - During system initialization, the system performs a
self-diagnostic test on the hardware configuration size and
expansion cartridge installation.
Once the system is initialized and the telephone displays read
Jan 1 1:00 am, you have 15 minutes in which to perform
Profile, Dialpad, and Startup programming. After 15 minutes,
access to Startup programming is denied.
Tips - After system startup, you can turn the power off and
on and retain any system data that has been entered. This is
considered a warm start. A warm start takes approximately
5-10 minutes. However, if you run Startup again, the default
programming will be reestablished.

Programming
The installer or the customer service representative programs
settings for the entire Norstar system, plus settings for
individual telephones and external lines.
Most of the settings can also be programmed by a system
coordinator who has a SysCoord+ password. The SysCoord+
password should only be used by individuals who are capable
of programming the Norstar ICS. Further, this level of access
should only be distributed to System Coordinators who are
more experienced in programming the Norstar ICS.
Programming affects system operation.
Only a qualified installer or customer service
representative should perform startup, installation and
maintenance programming. Some of the settings affect
the correct operation of the system.

access, Capabilities, User prefernces, Restrictions
and Telco features and will copy only the settings included
in the subheading.
If you press COPY in one of these subheadings, you will not be
asked to decide if user data will be copied. Otherwise, the
procedure is the same.
Tips - To copy to a group of telephones which are not part
of a range, follow the steps for making a single copy and keep
entering new numbers at the Copy to: display.
Depending on the activities going on in the system, a copy may
not take effect immediately. The brief display you see once you
have finished a copying session does not indicate the process
is complete.
You can leave the programming session even if the copy has
not been completed. If you exit programming, the system
continues copying, uninterrupted, until it is complete.
Event messages capture both the start and completion of the
copying process. For more information, see Event messages
on page 555.
Tips - Some programming settings allow you to choose a
delay according to the number of rings. The ring counts used
are based on a North American standard of six seconds per
ring cycle. The actual delay time may be different for a device
other than a Norstar telephone.

Profiles and Dialpads
Use Profile programming to determine which types of trunks
are supported, and which are supported on and off core.
Use Dialpad programming to define how your system will
handle the letters Q and Z from the dialpad.
You must perform this procedure BEFORE you
run Startup, within the first 15 minutes after you
plug in your KSU.
If you run this program after Startup, you will lose
your settings.
Profile programming
If your system is outside of North America, you may require a
slightly different operating profile for your system. You must
choose these parameters before you perform your system
startup programming.
If your system is in North America or you know that you want
to run that profile, you do not need to run this program.
Profile parameters
Each market profile setting supports a different selection of
trunk cards. In your situation you may require NI (primarily
North America and some parts of South America) or ETSI
(Europe, Asia, and some parts of South America) ISDN.
Analog to digital expansion and compression rates can be
either a-law or mu-law, as well. The tables in the following

Changing the starting DN
You can change the starting number for your telephone
directory numbers (DNs). This is helpful when your system is
part of a network and you want to use a uniform series of
directory numbers for all telephones in your network.
With the display showing the current template.
1. Press ‘.
The display shows the current start DN.
2. Press CHANGE.
3. Enter the new directory number you want as the starting
DN, and press OK.
The display shows the new range of DN numbers.
4. Press ‘ to store the programming.
The display shows Applyng template.
This process takes a few minutes. When it is complete, the
indicators begin to flash. When the set displays Jan 1 1:00 am.
the initialization is complete.
The length of the directory number that you enter sets the
length for all directory numbers. Target line received numbers
are set to the same length when using the DID template. DNs
can be from three to seven digits. If your system is part of a
network, the DN length must be the same as all other systems.
A DN length change, if required, should be the first
programming change on a newly-installed Norstar system.
N0130943 01
Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide

Changing the DN length
If you reduce the length of the directory numbers in
DN length in System prgrming, the starting DN number is
reset to the default value (221).
If you increase the length of directory numbers in DN length
in System prgrming, each increase in length places the digit
2 in front of any existing DN. For example, if DN 3444 was
increased to a length of 6, the new DN would be 223444.
If the new DNs clash with the direct-dial digit, park prefix, or
line pool codes or destination codes, those numbers are
overridden and set to None.
Do not disable or enable ports in Maintenance programming
during the first two minutes after Startup programming.

Entering programming for system coordinators
The person on staff who is in charge of making changes on the
Norstar system is called the system coordinator. The everyday
programming done by system coordinators is described in the
Modular ICS 7.1 System Coordinator Guide.
Some system coordinators need to be able to program more
advanced settings and functions in order to carry out the dayto-day requests and upkeep of the Norstar. These coordinators
are usually dedicated communications specialists who work
with large Norstar systems or other telephone systems like
PBX or Centrex.
By using a special password, a system coordinator can see and
change many, but not all, of the programming settings used by
an installer. In this guide, programming that can only be
changed by an installer is marked in the heading. If you are
programming using the System Coordinator plus password,
you will not see these items when you move through the
menus. This level of access is documented in the Modular ICS
7.1 System Coordinator Guide.
1. Enter the System Coordinator plus codes on a
programming set by pressing
≤••Ç؈ÏÈÌ, which is the same as
≤••¤flfl‹››.
The display shows Password:.
2. Enter the System Coordinator plus password.
The default password is SCPLUS (727587).

Entering programming using other passwords
A set of the most often-used headings and subheadings is
available by using a System Coordinator password. Refer to
page 307. This level of access is designed for the average user
who takes care of the day-to-day changes to the Norstar
system, but who is not interested in more advanced
programming. The default password is ADMIN (23646).
There is also a Basic password that can be used to perform a
few programming tasks. The default password is BASIC
(22742). By using this password, a system coordinator can
delegate some responsibilities, and at the same time, keep
secure more sensitive programming features. For more
information, refer to Modular ICS 7.1 System Coordinator
Guide.

Terminals&Sets allows you to assign settings to each
telephone.
This is the first heading that appears after you enter your
password.
1. Press ≠.
The prompt displays: Show set:
2. Enter the set number of the telephone you would like to
program.
3. Press COPY to duplicate the programming for the telephone
and apply it to another telephone, a range of telephones or
all the telephones on the system.
For more information about copying set programming,
refer to Copying telephone programming on page 316.
Line access
Line access allows you to assign lines to individual
telephones. When you are finished programming Line access
settings for one telephone, you can copy those settings to other
telephones.
PRI lines can only be configured as direct inward dialing
(DID) lines. Therefore, PRI lines are always Auto Answer and
cannot be Manual Answer.
N0130943 01
Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide
336 / Terminals&Sets
Tip - When you assign line access for BRI loops which
have only one SPID, make sure that the programming for the
two lines on a BRI loop is identical. For example, if line 001
on BRI loop 201 appears at a DN, line 002 on the same loop
should appear at the DN as well. See the ISDN chapter for
more information about programming BRI lines.
In general, auto-answer loop start trunks and auto-answer
BRI trunks are not assigned to telephones. If assigned, they
are used for monitoring incoming call usage, or for making
outgoing calls.
Line assignment
This setting allows you to assign physical trunks and target
lines to each telephone. Target lines are assigned and removed
in the same manner as other lines.
1. After you have chosen a set number, press ≠ and
enter the line number.
2. Press CHANGE to change the setting for each line to one of
the following: Unassigned, Ring only, Appr&Ring, and
Appr only.
Telephones that are grouped together, and that are assigned
multiple target lines, can be set to allow ringing at all
telephones simultaneously (Broadcast ring).
Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide
N0130943 01
Terminals&Sets / 337
Appearances
This setting only applies for direct inward dial (DID) digits
mapped onto target lines.
The Norstar system can handle simultaneous calls to a
telephone with multiple target line appearances (157 to 284 for
MICS, 157 to 380 for XC). The number of target line
appearances depends on the line assignment setting, which
include: Appr&Ring, Ring only, and Appr only.
If Appr&Ring or Appr only is chosen, you can have as many
simultaneous DID calls as there are target line key
appearances. If Ring only is chosen, you can have as many
simultaneous DID calls as you have intercom keys.
Users cannot access PRI lines directly
through line appearances or line pools. All
outgoing PRI calls are dialed through the
intercom button, using destination codes.
When a trunk card is changed to PRI, all existing line
appearances for that card are automatically removed.
Telephones without line buttons, telephones connected
through an ATA2, portable telephones, and BRI ISDN
S-terminals cannot process more than two simultaneous calls.
There is a suggested limit of four line keys per telephone. You
can program more than four keys on a telephone by
programming less than four on other telephones. For instance,
you might program 20 keys on a receptionist telephone
equipped with a CAP and only three keys on the 20 telephones
connected to the CAP.

In general, auto-answer loop start trunks, auto-answer E&M
trunks, and DID trunks are not assigned to telephones. If
assigned, they are used for monitoring incoming call usage, or
for making outgoing calls (auto-answer loop start and E&M
trunks).
In general, fixed data channel trunks are not assigned to
telephones. If assigned, they are used for monitoring call
usage.
You cannot assign a line that is private to another telephone.
Each line assigned to appear at a telephone must appear at a
button with an indicator on that telephone. The maximum
number of line buttons are eight for the 7208 digital phone, 10
for the 7316 and 7316E digital phones.
If you set a line to Ring only, incoming calls appear on an
intercom button.
The 7100, 7000 digital telephones and the Digital Mobility
phones have no line buttons or intercom keys, but can be
assigned any number of lines. However, only two calls can be
received at a time. Ensure that the lines assigned to these
telephones are assigned to ring; otherwise, you cannot detect
incoming calls on the lines.
Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide
N0130943 01
Terminals&Sets / 339
TIPs - CAP line programming: A central answering
position (CAP) with eKIMs, can provide extra line buttons if
more than 10 (7316E digital phone) lines are assigned to the
telephone attached to the modules. The extra lines
automatically overflow onto the buttons on the module, as they
are programmed. Note that new line assignments may
overwrite existing programming on the eKIM.
Note: The eKIM must be set up under System prgrmng, CAP/
KIM assgn to accommodate line buttons. If the modules are
not set up in system programming to be CAPs, the lines will
remain assigned to the 7316E, but will not show up on a button
on that telephone.
Line pool access
This setting allows a telephone to access one or more of the 15
line pools available (A to O). When you assign a given line
pool, the telephone being programmed can access any lines in
that line pool.
Press ≠, then press ‘ to scroll through the
settings and display the line pool you want to program access
to. Press CHANGE to select the setting: N (No) and Y (Yes).
There can be a maximum of two on-core DTI cards (PRI) on a
Norstar system, regardless of profile.
Four line pools are available for PRI lines for profiles 1 and 4,
which support two on-core DTI cards and one off-core DTI
card (Off-core DTI card on page 219). The four possible line
pools are PRI-A, PRI-B, PRI-C, or PRI-D.
•
Only PRI lines can belong to a PRI pool. PRI lines cannot
belong to Line Pools A through O.
•
All lines on a single DTI card (PRI) belong to the same
pool.
N0130943 01
Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide
340 / Terminals&Sets
•
Lines from multiple DTI cards (PRI) can belong to the
same pool if they are configured with the same protocol.
•
PRI lines are assigned to pools with the Line type setting
under Lines programming.
Prime line
This setting assigns a prime line to the telephone. A prime line
is the first line that is automatically selected when the handset
is lifted.
Press CHANGE to select one of these settings: None,
Pool (A to O), or I/C (intercom). Only assigned lines and line
pools appear.
PRI pools are not valid selections for a Prime line.
Tips - An assigned prime line is not associated with the
assignment of a prime telephone.
• An external line must be assigned to the telephone in
Line assignment before it can be assigned as the prime
line to the telephone.
• A line pool must be assigned to the telephone in line pool
access before a line pool can be assigned as the prime
line to the telephone.
• A target line cannot be a prime line for a telephone
because it is incoming-only.
• A DID line should not be assigned as the prime line for
a telephone. If assigned, it is treated as if no prime line
has been assigned. The message Select a line appears
when the receiver is lifted.
Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide
N0130943 01
Terminals&Sets / 341
Remember that if you set prime line to I/C (intercom), you may
wish to assign loop start lines to the first line pools. When the
system searches for an outgoing line, it begins at line pool A
and chooses the first available line.
By assigning a line pool as a prime line, a telephone can be
made to search automatically for an idle line in a pool. This is
described in the section on programming Line type (Trk/Line
Data).
Intercom keys
This setting assigns the number of intercom buttons to a
telephone. Intercom buttons provide a telephone with access to
internal lines and line pools.
Press CHANGE to select the setting: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, or 8.
Tips - Each intercom button assigned during
programming automatically appears on the telephone. The
buttons start with the lower right-hand button, or one button
above, if the handsfree/mute feature is assigned to the
telephone.
A telephone needs two intercom buttons to be able to establish
a conference call with two other Norstar telephones.
Only one intercom button may be required if the button will
only be used to make and receive internal calls, and to access
line pools.
Two intercom buttons are required if a telephone has several
lines assigned to ring only.
The model 7000 and 7100 digital phones and the Digital
Mobility phones default to two intercom positions. This allows
the user to have two active calls at once, with one of them on
Hold.These intercom assignments do not appear on buttons on
the telephone.

Answer DNs
Calls for other system telephones can appear and/or ring and
be answered at the telephone being programmed. The DNs of
the other telephones are referred to as Answer DNs.
This is commonly used when twinning wireless handsets to
allow mobile users to have one phone number that reaches
them either at their desk or elsewhere within radio range.

You cannot assign Answer DNs to a single-line telephone
connected to an analog module or to an Analog Terminal
Adapter.
•
The maximum number of Answer DNs is eight per
telephone.
•
More than one telephone can have an Answer button for
the same DN. In this way, more than one telephone can
provide call alerting and call answering for any calls
directed to that DN.
•
When a call to a system telephone is received via Call
Forwarding, the Answer DN for that telephone will not
alert.
•
A private line does not generate alerting at an Answer DN.
OLI #
Some ISDN devices may require the network Called Number
digits, called the outgoing line identification (OLI), to be able
to accept a call. The OLI as called # parameter, available
only for Profile 1 and 4, permits the OLI digits to replace the
internal DN digits of the ISDN device during call setup. To
enable this capability, set the OLI as called # parameter to Y
for all DNs used by the device.
1. At Terminals&Sets, press ≠ and enter the
ISDN set number.
The set displays 221:221.
2. Press ≠ twice to reach Line Assignment.
3. Press ‘ until the display shows OLI#s.
4. Press ≠. The displays shows OLI as called #:N.
5. Press CHANGE to select Y to allow for OLI substitution.
N0130943 01
Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide
344 / Terminals&Sets
6. Press the ® button to exit programming.
For PRI, the OLI# is based on the set number. However, when
you make an outgoing call on a BRI line, the Call Display
information which appears on the telephone you are calling is
usually based on the first Network DN associated with the
service profile identifier (SPID) and line.
If the SPID and line have more than one Network DN, you can
program a DN to use a Network DN other than the first one for
the outgoing Call Display information. When you program the
alternate Network DN as the 10-digit OLI number, and you
make a call using the line associated with the Network DN, the
OLI number appears on the telephone you are calling.
If an outgoing call is made using a SPID and line that are not
associated with the Network DN number used as the OLI
number, the network ignores the number and the default
Call Display information is displayed. This is the first or only
Network DN associated with the SPID and line.
1. At Terminals&Sets, press ≠ and enter the
ISDN set number.
The set displays 221:221.
2. Press ≠ twice to reach Line Assignment.
3. Press ‘ until the display shows OLI#s.
4. Press CHANGE and enter the 10 digits used for the OLI.
5. Press CLR to choose None.
Note: If your system is equipped with a mixture of digital line
cards, program the telephones to use line pools when
making calls. If line pools are not properly configured,
a telephone may use a line with a network range that
does not include the calling line ID for the telephone,

causing the network to present an incorrect CLID to the

Restrictions
Restrictions prevent a user from making certain kinds of calls
from a telephone or from lines that are available at the
telephone. It also restricts some features.
When you are finished programming restriction settings for
one telephone, you can copy those settings to other telephones
by using COPY at the Restrictions ˆ display.
For ISDN PRI, all line restriction changes are applicable to all
lines.
For more information about copying set programming, see
Copying telephone programming on page 316.
Filters
Restriction filters group call restrictions and overrides in
packages that allow you to make restriction assignments to
lines and sets with just one package indicator.
In addition to restricting telephone numbers, you can prevent
people from entering dialing sequences used by the public
network to deliver special services and features. Some public
network features provide the caller with dial tone after they
have entered the special code, usually £ or •, so users may
have an opportunity to bypass restrictions. To prevent this
from happening, you should create filters that block these
special codes.
You create a filter by defining the dialing sequences that are
denied.
N0130943 01
Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide
350 / Terminals&Sets
There will also be variations of each sequence that you will
want users to be able to dial. Sequences that can be dialed are
called overrides.
Once you create the filters, you can assign the restrictions to a
telephone (Terminals&Sets), to a line (Lines), to a
particular line on a telephone (Terminals&Sets), and to
remote callers (Remote access).
1. Press ≠ and enter the number of the restriction
filter you want to program, or press ‘ to move
through all the available filters.
2. Press ≠ to see the first restriction in the filter.
The first four digits of the number that will be denied are
included in the display. The full number can be seen by
pressing ≠ again.
3. Use ADD, the dialpad, and OK to program a restriction for
each filter.
4. Press ‘ when the full restricted number is on the
display (it shows Deny: and the number) to see any
overrides to the restriction.
5. Use ADD, the dialpad, and OK to program overrides for each
restriction filter.
6. Press ANY to enter a wild card character that represents any
digit in a sequence of numbers when denying numbers or
creating overrides.
7. You can press REMOVE to delete a restriction.
The overrides will be deleted as well and the restrictions
will renumber to fill the gap.

Default filters
Filter 00 permits unrestricted dialing and cannot be changed.
Filter 01 is pre-programmed with five restrictions and some
associated overrides.
In Filter 01, restriction 02 and override 005 allow long
distance directory assistance calls. Filter 01 reflects the fact
that area codes can now have any digit as a second digit. This
is designed to be used with the North American dialing plan.
The dialing string 911, the number for emergency assistance in
North America, is included as both a restriction and an
override in filter 01. This arrangement prevents anyone from
blocking calls for emergency assistance on lines or sets using
the default filter.

allocated to the 100 programmable filters.
The maximum length of a restriction is 15 digits. The maximum
length of an override is 16 digits.
A single dot (•) in a dialing sequence is a wild card (stands for
any digit). It is inserted by pressing ANY.
Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide

Terminals&Sets / 353
You can use • and £ in a sequence of numbers in either a
restriction or an override. These characters are often used as
part of feature codes for other systems or for features provided
by the central office (the public network).
When restricting the dialing of a central office feature code,
remember to create separate restrictions for the codes used for
DTMF and pulse lines. Examples of dialing strings that may be
restricted for this reason are *67 and 1167. Do not string
together a central office feature code and a dialing sequence
that you want to restrict. Create a separate restriction for each.
You can use COPY and the dialpad to copy restrictions and
overrides from one filter to another.
Any restriction or override can be used in any number of
filters. Each time it is used, it counts as one entry. For example,
if restriction 411 exists in filters 01, 02 and 03, it uses up three
entries of the 400 entries available.
Removing a restriction from a filter has no effect on the
contents of other filters, even if the restriction was copied to
them.
You cannot delete a filter. Removing the restrictions
programmed on a filter makes it an unrestricted filter, but the
filter itself is not removed.
Removing a restriction changes the
identifying number of the restriction.
Removing a restriction also removes the
overrides associated with it, and changes the
identifying number of the restriction. For
example, if you remove restriction 01, restrictions
02 to 08 are renumbered as 01 to 07.

Line/set restrns
Line/set restrns allows you to assign a restriction filter to a
specific line that can be used for outgoing calls at a specific
telephone. This type of filter replaces any line or set restriction
filters which might otherwise apply. It restricts the numbers
you can dial on a line, but only from that telephone. The same
line on another telephone can have different restrictions.
As with set restrictions, you can apply a different line/set
restriction for normal service and for each of six schedules.
Use ≠, CHANGE and the dialpad to enter the number
of the filter to be assigned as the line/set restriction for each
schedule. There are no default line/set restrictions.
Tips - A maximum of 255 line/set restrictions may be
applied to lines at telephones.
If a line/set restriction is assigned to a line at a particular
telephone, it overrides any line restrictions or set restrictions
which might otherwise apply.
If no line/set restrictions have been defined, the numbers are
checked against the set restrictions and the line restrictions, if
either of these have been defined. The numbers may be
rejected by either restriction.

Telco features
Telco features can program the way the Norstar works with
features and services that are based in the public network or
other outside source. Norstar is designed to work with two of
these kinds of services: Call Display and an external voice
message service.
When you are finished programming Telco features settings
for one telephone, you can copy those settings to other
telephones by using COPY at the Telco features... display.
For more information about copying set programming, see

Feature assignment (CLID alignment)
If you subscribe to Call Display (Caller ID) services, external
calls are identified on the display of telephones which have
been programmed to display CLID. You may also have a
message indicator from an external voice mail service show on
the display. Feature assignment programming allows you to
customize how this information is used.
Press ≠ and enter the number of the line you want to
program with feature settings for the telephone.
Caller ID set
Caller ID set allows you to specify if a telephone displays the
Call Display information when a call is ringing on an external
line. After the call is answered, Call Display information is
always shown at the telephone that answered the call.
The Caller ID set for target lines is the same telephone that has
appearance on that target line. Press CHANGE to select the
setting: N (No) or Y (Yes).
N0130943 01
Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide

Tip - In order for a telephone to display the Call Display
information for calls on an external line, it must also be
programmed to appear and ring or ring for that line.
For systems that subscribe to Call Display services, Caller ID
can be viewed on any telephone by entering the Call
Information feature code ≤°⁄⁄. See the Telephone
Feature Card or Modular ICS 7.1 System Coordinator Guide
for more information.
Call information does not automatically appear when the
telephone has an Answer DN, or belongs to a Ring group
activated by Ringing Service. Call information is still available
for these calls by pressing ≤°⁄⁄.
Call log set
When you choose the Line variable for Call log under Featr
settings (Call log on page 436), you can use this heading to
determine which lines will log calls. The assigned lines do not
have to be ringing lines, but they must have an appearance on
the telephone.
For each assigned line, press CHANGE to select the setting: N
(No) or Y (Yes).
Extl VMsg set
If you subscribe to an external voice message service or central
voice mail system that is not directly connected to your ICS,
you can access that service through your Norstar system. The
external voice message setting controls where the indicator
shows up when there is a voice message waiting on a particular
line. The line must be assigned to appear on that telephone.

Lines
This chapter describes the settings that allow you to determine
how the lines coming in and going out of the system will be

Lines, whether physical or virtual, are the connecting threads
that allow users access into and out of the Norstar system to the
public network or to other private networks.
Lines can be pooled so a number of telephones have access to
more available lines, or they can be assigned specifically to
one telephone. There are also a number of ways that a
telephone can be configured to access line pools and special
lines like tie lines and private network lines.

Copying Trunk and Line data
At the Trk/Line data display COPY appears. This allows you
to copy programming from one line to other lines.
Tips - In copying data from a physical trunk to a target
line, or the other way around, only the data in common is
copied. For example, copying a target line to an E&M trunk
copies only the Line data settings because there are no Trunk
data settings for a target line.
You cannot copy programming between lines on different types
of Trunk Cartridges. If you try to copy line programming
between lines on different types of Trunk Cartridges, the
display shows Incompatible Cd, then returns to
Show line: _.
The Received number of a target line is a unique number and
cannot be copied.
Trunk type
The Trunk type heading shows Loop, DID, PRI, BRI-ST, BRIU4, BRI-U2, E&M, Ground or Fixed.
You can only change this setting for lines connected to a DTI.
For all other lines, such as analog lines and BRI lines, the trunk
type is determined by the Trunk Cartridge type. The system
simply displays the trunk type; you cannot change it. To
change the Trunk Cartridge or BRI Card, see Hardware on
page 495.
Changing the settings for a trunk type on a
system that is in use, may cause calls to be
dropped.

A Public line can be accessed by more than one telephone.
•
A Private line can be assigned only to one telephone and
the prime telephone for that line. Use CHANGE and the
dialpad to enter the internal number of the telephone.
Pool assigns the line to one of the line pools. If a line is
assigned to a line pool, but is not assigned to any
telephone, that line is available only for outgoing calls (for
example, PRI lines).
•
Tips - Line pools must never contain a mixture of loop
start lines and E&M lines. All E&M lines in a given line pool
should go to the same location.
Try to avoid putting unsupervised loopstart lines in a line pool.
These lines can become hung, especially when a remote user
uses the line pool to make an external call.
Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide
N0130943 01
Lines / 365
There are two more programming settings that must be
assigned before a line pool can be used:
•
•
You must assign line pool access to telephones in
Line access programming.
You must assign system-wide line pool access codes in
System prgrming for line pools A to 0, and/or routes and
destination codes. PRI line pools can only be accessed by
being assigned to routes and destination codes.
Tips - A telephone can be administered to search
automatically for an idle line from several lines appearing on
the telephone. Assign a line pool as the prime line
(in Line access) and all the lines in the line pool must
appear on that telephone.
When the user lifts the receiver or presses the handsfree
button, any one of the lines, if idle, can be selected by
Automatic Outgoing Line selection.
This is not available for PRI line pools.
Line connected to a DTI
The Line setting shows the trunk type for a line.
For lines connected to a DTI, press CHANGE to select one of
these settings: Loop, E&M, DID, Ground, Fixed, PRI.
•
Loop is used for loop start trunks
•
E&M is used for the first two line numbers on E&M trunks
Tips - E&M Trunk Cartridges have two E&M lines and
two DTMF receivers (instead of four lines, as in a Loop Start
Trunk Cartridge). For example, if an E&M Trunk Cartridge
has the range of line numbers 049 to 052, numbers 049 and
050 are E&M lines, and numbers 051 and 052 are the DTMF
receivers. The display for line 050 appears as Line050:E&M
and for line 051 appears as Line051:DTMF.
N0130943 01
Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide
366 / Lines
•
•
•
DID is used for direct inward dialing trunks
ground is used for groundstart (T1) trunks
PRI is used for ISDN-PRI, which includes the SL-1
MCDN protocol for networking.
Tips - Changing the settings for a trunk type on a system
that is in use, may cause calls to be dropped.
When assigning lines to line pools, consider your network
configuration. You may be able to create a unified dialing
plan by assigning lines to the same location to the same line
pool on each of your systems. For example, if system A and
system B each have tie lines to system C, assign the tie lines to
pool D on each of the systems.
If you plan to program the prime line as I/C (intercom) for
some telephones, you may wish to assign loop start lines to the
first line pool. Remember that when the system searches for an
outgoing line, it begins at line pool A and chooses the first
available line.
Assigning a single E&M trunk to a line pool allows features
like Ring Again to help manage access to a shared resource.
You cannot assign target lines (157-248/380) to a line pool.
Dial mode
Dial mode allows you to specify whether dual tone
multifrequency (DTMF) or pulse signaling is used on the
trunk.
Press CHANGE to select the setting: Tone or Pulse.
Tips - For DID and E&M lines connected to a DTI, the
Tone setting does not appear if Signal is Immediate.
Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide

Rec’d #
The Received number setting applies only to target lines.
Target lines are: 157 to 248 for systems running MICS version
7.0 and newer software, and 157 to 380 for systems running
MICS-XC version 7.0 and newer software. It allows you to
specify the digits which make a specific target line ring. The
default value is None.
Use CHANGE, and the dialpad to program the digit string for
each target line.
Tips - A Received number can be from three to seven digits
long. It is programmed under System prgming. The default
length is three for all systems.
A received number cannot be the same as, or be the start digits
of a line pool access code, a destination code, the DISA DN or
the Auto DN.
If you are configuring auto-answer BRI trunks to map to target
lines, the received number should be the same as the
Network DN supplied by your service provider. The call will
be directed to the prime telephone for the incoming line if the
Network DN is not used.
If busy
When a call is received on a target line that is already busy,
you can choose if the caller gets a busy tone or if the call is
forwarded to the prime set.
Busy tone only works for PRI and BRI trunks on target lines.
Programming is done in Trunk/Line Data under Lines.
Press CHANGE to select one of these settings: To prime or
BusyTone.

Prime set
This feature allows you to assign a telephone to provide
backup answering for calls on the line. Unanswered calls are
redirected to the prime telephone.
Use CHANGE and the dialpad to enter the internal number of the
prime telephone.
The default prime set for each line on a system with three-digit
DNs is 221.
Tips - For auto-answer trunks, calls ring only at the prime
telephone for a trunk, and only when overflow call routing is
active.
Each line can be assigned only one prime telephone.
Auto privacy
This feature controls whether one Norstar user can select a line
in use at another telephone to join an existing call. The default
setting is Privacy on, so that nobody with a Norstar telephone
can press a line appearance on their telephone to join a call in
progress at another telephone.
Press CHANGE to select either: Y (on) or N (off).
Tips - Users can change a line privacy setting for an
individual call using the Privacy feature (≤°‹).
Note: This feature does not work on target lines or PRI lines.

Trunk mode
Trunk mode allows you to specify either disconnect
supervision or unsupervised. Disconnect supervision, also
referred to as loop supervision, releases an external line when
an open switch interval (OSI) is detected during a call on that
line. This prevents the line from remaining unavailable for
other Norstar users.
Press CHANGE to select the setting: Unspr or Super.
•
•
Unspr (the default) turns disconnect supervision off for the
line.
Super assigns supervised mode, if supported by the line.
otherwise, the line functions as unsupervised.
Tips - The duration of an open switch interval (OSI) before
Norstar disconnects a call is programmed by the Discon
timer setting under Hardware.
Disconnect supervision is required for loop start trunks to
operate in auto-answer mode or with DISA. It is also required
to conference with two external callers. The line must be
equipped with disconnect supervision from the central office
for the Super option to work.
Ans mode
The Answer mode setting appears on the display during
programming for loop start and BRI lines with a Trunk mode
setting of Super, for groundstart (T1) lines, and for E&M
lines. Press CHANGE to select the setting: Manual or Auto.
Tips - If loop start lines are set to Auto, you will require
an E&M card for the DTMF receivers to function properly.
N0130943 01
Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide
370 / Lines
Tips - Remember that disconnect supervision is required if
loop start trunks need to operate in auto-answer mode.
You should change the Answer with DISA setting to N for E&M
trunks in a private network operating in auto-answer mode.
The default, Y (Yes), causes the system to expect a Class of
Service password after it automatically answers a trunk.
Ans with DISA
When activated, the Answer with DISA setting specifies that a
trunk is answered with stutter dial tone. This feature is only
active if Ans Mode is set to Auto.
Press CHANGE to select the setting: Y (Yes) or N (No).
Tips - For loop start and E&M lines this setting only
appears if Answer mode is Auto.
Set Ans with DISA to No for E&M lines on an enhanced
switched network (ESN) to operate properly in auto-answer
mode.
Tips - When an incoming call comes in on an auto-answer
loop guarded or Earth calling line that is not configured to
answer with DISA, the caller hears system dial tone. They can
then enter a DID line public received number to dial direct to
an extension, a line pool access code to break out, or a remote
feature code from a DTMF telephone if a suitable remote
access package has been assigned.
To program DISA on PRI trunk, see Programming Direct
Inward System Access (DISA) on PRI trunks on page 82.

Link at CO (loop trunks only)
Some exchanges respond to a Link signal (≤‡⁄) by
providing an alternative line for making outgoing calls.
•
When Link at CO is set to Y (Yes), the system applies the
restrictions on outgoing calls to the digits dialed after the
Link signal, and the call on the alternative line will be
subject to all restrictions.
•
Setting Link at CO to N (No) prevents a Link signal from
resetting the Norstar restrictions in cases where the host
exchange does not provide an alternative line.
Press CHANGE to select the setting: Y (Yes) or N (No).
For more information about host signaling options, refer to
Modular ICS 7.1 System Coordinator Guide.
Aux. ringer
This setting allows you to turn the auxiliary ringer on or off.
An auxiliary ringer can be programmed on a line or a
telephone. When programmed on a telephone, the auxiliary
ringer rings every time a call is received. When programmed
on a line, the auxiliary ringer does not ring when a transferred
call is received.
Press CHANGE to select the setting: Y (Yes) or N (No).
Tips - The auxiliary ringer is an optional device that
should be connected by the installer.
If you have an auxiliary ringer programmed to ring for calls
on an external line, and you transfer a call on that line without
announcing the transfer, the auxiliary ringer will ring for the
call transfer.
N0130943 01
Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide

Tips - An auxiliary ringer can also be programmed in
Services to ring for a line placed into a scheduled Ringing
service. See the Modular ICS 7.1 System Coordinator Guide
for more information.
Full AutoHold
Full AutoHold on idle line is a variation of the Automatic Hold
feature. If you select an idle line, but do not dial any digits, that
line is automatically placed on hold if you select another line.
Press CHANGE to select the setting: N (No) or Y (Yes).
The line you first selected is held until you press the line
button. The line is not available for use by anyone else.
Tips - The Full AutoHold setting appears only during loop
start trunk programming. Full AutoHold is always in place for
E&M trunks, but it has no meaning for incoming-only DID
trunks. Only change the default setting if Full AutoHold is
required for a specific application.
LossPkg
Loss Package allows you to select the appropriate loss/gain
and impedance settings for each line. The setting is based on
the distance between the ICS and the terminating switch, and
the terminating switch type. When measuring the distance
from ICS to CO and from ICS to PBX, use 600 ohms as the
termination resistance setting.
A loss of 4 dB corresponds to a cable length of approximately
2700 m (9000 ft.).

Programming distinctive ring patterns
When lines are configured on your system, they can be
assigned one of four distinctive ring patterns (DRP). The
default for all telephones is 1. The default for lines is None,
which is the lowest priority.
Call ringing: When multiple calls are presented to the
telephone, the call with the highest priority DRP setting will be
the call that rings at the telephone.
Call answering: When multiple calls are presented to a
telephone, and the user picks up the handset, the call with the
highest priority DRP setting is the call that is presented.
TIPs - External calls always have a higher priority than
internal calls.
If the ring type is changed on a telephone after the DRPs are
set on the line, the line DRPs are overwritten by the telephone
settings.
If the line DRPs are set after telephone programming, then the
telephone ring programming is overridden by the DRP. Refer
to the Modular ICS System Administrator Guide for details
about setting ring types on a telephone.
If Hunt group DRP has a higher priority than the line DRP, the
system will use the Hunt Group DRP within the Hunt Group.
(Refer to Allowing/disallowing an auxiliary ringer on page
427.)
Note: Digital Mobility phones do not have access to this
feature.

Restrictions
Restrictions are used to prevent a user from accessing a line for
making certain kinds of calls. For example, users should not be
able to make long-distance calls on lines used exclusively for
local calling.
Restrn filters
Restriction filters are groups of dialing restrictions and dialing
overrides for external numbers or feature codes. By packing a
set of restrictions and overrides in one group, you can assign
them to a line in one step, as a single package.
You can make changes to restriction filters under both
Terminals&Sets, and Lines. Any changes will take effect
for any telephone, line, or line on a telephone, regardless of
where the programming was changed.
See the description and procedures in Restrictions on page
378.
Line restrns
Specify the filter to be applied to this line to restrict the
numbers that can be dialed on it. You can assign a different
restriction filter for normal service and for each of the six
schedules. See Services on page 381 for more information
about the schedules.
Use ≠, CHANGE and the dialpad to enter the number
of the restriction filter to be assigned as the line restriction for

Services
Using Services, you can control three types of service using
the time of day and the day of week:
•
•
•
alternate call ringing, see page 385
alternate dialing restrictions, see page 389
alternate call routing, see page 389
You can customize services in general under Common
Settings. Refer to Common settings on page 382.
Within each type of service, you can customize six schedules.
For example, you may want to combine alternate call ringing
with alternate dialing restrictions for lunchtime, evenings, and
weekends (Schedules 1, 2, and 3). Then you may want to run
alternate call routing using three separate schedules.
Tips - Once you have programmed the different services
and schedules, you can turn each of the services on separately.
For example, the Night schedule might control both Ringing
service and Restriction service. But you can turn on just the
Ringing service part of the Night schedule if you wish.
You can activate the services from the designated control
telephone for each Norstar telephone and line in your system.
You can have one control telephone for the whole system, or
different control telephones for different Norstar telephones
and lines.
If you want to have several services active at the same time,
simply program them on for the same schedule.

Common settings
Services share the settings for control telephones, schedule
names, and schedule times.
Control sets
A control telephone turns Services on and off for the lines and/
or telephones assigned to it. You can assign several control
telephones for your system.
A control telephone for lines controls Ringing service,
Restriction service and Routing service for its assigned lines.
A control telephone for telephones controls Restriction service
and Routing service for its assigned telephones. Assign a
control telephone for each external line and telephone.
Use ≠, ‘, CHANGE and the dialpad to
program the internal number of the control telephone for each
line and each telephone.
Control set configurations for both lines and telephones can be
copied from one set/line to another set/line or to a range of
sets/lines, or to all sets/lines, using the COPY softkey.
Tips - External lines and telephones must be programmed
with a control telephone to use the three kinds of Services. You
can assign a control telephone to more than one external line
or telephone, but a line or telephone cannot be assigned to
more than one control telephone.
One recommendation is to have one control telephone for all
lines and a different control telephone for all telephones.
Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide
N0130943 01
Services / 383
Tips - A service can be turned on manually or
automatically for all external lines and telephones controlled
by a given control telephone, but you cannot combine
schedules. In other words, a service can only be active as
normal service or one of the six schedules at any one time. You
can have several schedules active, as long as they are using
different services.
The default control telephone for all lines and telephones is
221 (for systems with three-digit DNs).
Schedule names
The schedule name is shown on the display of the control
telephone when the schedule is turned on. It identifies the
active schedule.
Use ≠, ‘, and CHANGE and the dialpad to
program the name.
Tips - The default names of the six possible schedules are
only suggestions and may be changed to any other name.
A schedule name can be one to seven characters long. It is
recommended that you reserve certain schedules (4, 5, and 6)
exclusively for alternate call routing (Routing service).
Schedule times
Schedule start and stop times are set at times you are most
likely to want each service to be active.
Use ≠, ‘, and CHANGE and the dialpad to
program the start and stop times for each schedule, on each
day.

Tips - It is only necessary to program start and stop times
for schedules that are activated automatically. See the
instructions with Ringing service for information on
activating schedules.
The time may be entered in either 12 or 24-hour format. If the
display is in English, and the hour entered is less than 13, the
display prompts you to specify AM or PM.
If you assign identical start and stop times for a schedule, for
example, 04:00 start and 04:00 stop, the schedule is in effect
all day. The only exception to this is a start and stop time of
00:00. In that case the schedule is off for the day.
You may assign overlapping times. For example, if schedule 1
is assigned from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm, and schedule 2 is
assigned from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm, then the start time of the
second schedule is treated as a stop time for the first schedule.
Tips - This is also true if two schedules have the same
start time but different stop times. In that case, the stop time
of the shorter schedule is treated as the start time of the longer
schedule.
If one schedule starts and stops within the times of another
schedule, the first service temporarily ends when the second
service starts. The first service then resumes when the second
service has ended.
Some schedules start and stop at the same times each day. Use
COPY to copy the start and stop times from one day to the next.
Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide
N0130943 01
Services / 385
Start and stop times cannot span days.
When you program a schedule to start in the
evening and stop in the morning, it does not carry
over into the next day. For example, if you
program Night service for Friday (22:00 to 06:00),
the system turns on Night service from midnight
to 6 am on Friday, and then again from 10 pm to
midnight on Friday.
Ringing service
At certain times or in certain situations, you may want
additional telephones to begin ringing for incoming lines. The
most common use of this feature is when a security desk
telephone begins to ring for incoming lines after 5:00 p.m., a
practice often called night service.
These features are programmed under Ringing service.
Ringing groups
Ringing groups allows you to define groups of extended
ringing sets. A group can be assigned to any line for any of the
schedules. You can create up to 100 ringing groups composed
of up to 30 sets for each ringing group.
To define a ringing group use ≠ and enter the number
of the group you want to program (01-100).
Once you define a ringing group, the display will prompt you
to enter the number of the telephone you want to assign to this
ringing group. You can use SCAN to display the sets that are
assigned to the ringing group.

You can still start and stop the service by entering the
appropriate Services feature code at a control telephone.
Manual — allows you to turn the service on and off at any time
from a control telephone using the Ringing service feature
code.

ExtraDial telephone allows you to assign an additional
direct-dial telephone in the Norstar system for each schedule
you use.
Use CHANGE and the dialpad to enter the internal number of the
extradial telephone.
Tip - The extradial telephone is activated during a schedule
by entering the Ringing service feature code from a direct-dial
telephone. This does not activate the Ringing service unless
the direct-dial telephone is also a control telephone.
Line settings
The ring groups and auxiliary ringer for Ringing service is
programmed for each line individually.
Ringing group
You can assign a predefined ringing group to a line for each
schedule. See Ringing groups on page 385 to create groups of
extra ringing telephones.
Use the dialpad to enter the line number to see which ringing
group is assigned to the line.
To choose a different ringing group assignment, press CHANGE
and enter the new ringing group number (01-100)
N0130943 01

Tip - Only one ringing group can be assigned to a line for
each schedule. To combine groups of ringing telephones, you
must create a new ringing group which contains all the
telephones you want to ring and assign the group to the line.
Aux. ringer
Indicate whether the auxiliary ringer, if installed, also rings
when Ringing service is on.
Press CHANGE to select either: Y (Yes) or N (No).
Tips - The default ringing telephone is 221 (for systems
with a DN length of 3). This means that all lines ring at
telephone 221 when Ringing service is on.
You can use COPY and the dialpad to copy Ringing set and
Auxiliary ringer programming from one line to another.
If you have an auxiliary ringer programmed to ring for calls
on an external line, and you transfer a call on that line without
announcing the transfer, the auxiliary ringer will ring for the
call transfer.

For information about using schedules, refer to the Modular
ICS 7.1 System Coordinator Guide.
Tips - A schedule must be active for overflow routing to be
in effect. Overflow routing is not available in normal mode.
You must create an overflow route to be used with each
destination code. In this way, every route used with a
scheduled mode that has overflow service must have an
alternate route in normal service.
See Ringing service on page 385 for descriptions of the three
activation settings.
See Restrictions under both Terminals&Sets and Lines
to assign dialing restrictions for telephones, lines and remote
users to the schedules.
Routing service
The programming for routing decides what path an outgoing
call takes using the digits that are dialed. It is sometimes called
Automatic Route Selection (ARS).
When you select an internal line and dial, the numbers you
enter are checked against the routing tables. If the number you
dialed starts with a destination code, the system uses the line
pool and dials out digits specified by the route assigned to that
destination code, and then dials the rest of the number that you
dialed.
N0130943 01
Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide
390 / Services
Plan your routing service before doing any
programming.
Routing affects every call placed in the system
and must be carefully planned to avoid conflicts
and gaps in the programming. Use the tables in
the Programming Record to design routes and
destination codes, then check for potential
problems before you start programming.
Routing service replaces a number of tasks that otherwise have
to be done manually, including:
•
•
•
entering a line pool code
dialing an access code for a long distance carrier
deciding which line pool to use according to the time and
day
The installer can set up routing to take advantage of any leased
or discounted routes using information supplied by the
customer. The system itself cannot tell which lines are cheaper
to use.
For Call by Call service selection (PRI only), the installer
defines destination codes for various call types over PRI lines
(e.g. Foreign Exchange, Tie Trunk, and OUTWATS). This
information is then recorded in the routing and dialing plan
section of the Programming Record for the PRI-A pool (and
PRI-B, PRI-C or PRI-D if there are two or more PRI cards).
The user simply dials a number via the intercom button
without entering any special information. For more
information see, Programming Call by Call service selection
on page 474.
How to use routing to create a uniform dialing plan (UDP) or
coordinated dialing plan (CDP) is explained in Dialing plans
on page 112.

Routes and destination codes
Installer password required
Programming for a route makes use of:
•
destination codes (maximum of 500 available, with a
maximum of 12 digits per code)
•
a three-digit route number (000-999)
•
a line pool
•
•
DialOut digits (up to 24 digits)
a schedule (programmed in Services), which allows three
alternate routes per schedule
Routing table modifications
Changes to the routing tables can only be made
during low-activity periods or on an idle system.
Plan to program the routing tables when user
activity is at a minimum.
Alternatively, Norstar Remote Utilities (NRU) can
be used to back up, modify and restore these
tables.
Tips - To dial a telephone number which does not match
any of the programmed destination codes, the user chooses a
line and dials the number. For long distance dialing, area
codes in the North American numbering plan can be
programmed as destination codes.

Auto DNs (Auto DN on page 459)
For instance, if your park prefix is 1, and you want to start your
destination codes with 1, you must change the park prefix first.
If your line pool code for the local PBX is 9, and you want to
start your destination codes with 9 to allow routing to the local
PBX, you must create a destination code that includes the line
pool for the PBX and delete the line pool code for 9.

To make the digits available for use with destination codes,
you must change the DN length of B1 and B2 DNs, depending
on your system size. This can be done either at system startup
or in System prgrming. The examples shown above use a
three-digit DN length, unless stated otherwise.
Wild card character
When programming destination codes, you can use wild cards
as the last number in a destination code string. By using wild
cards, you can reduce the number of destination codes
programmed in the system, maximizing the distribution of
destination codes in the system.
The wild card character is added to the destination code by
pressing the ANY key as the last digit of the code. This
character represents any digit from 0 to 9, except for digits
already programmed or used by other numbering plans.
Should there be a conflict with other digits already
programmed or used with by numbering plans, the digit will
not be allowed.
The wild card character can only be used to group destination
codes that use the same Route and Absorb Length.
Given the routes shown in the table below, the following two
tables show you how to set up destination codes with or
without wild card characters.

Setting up a route for local calling Installer password required
An office may have different suppliers for local and long
distance telephone service. By programming a destination
code, any call that begins with 9, the most common dialout
digit, will automatically use lines dedicated to local service.
The first step is to build a route (under Services/Routing
Service/Routing).
1. At Show route: enter 001 (or any other available route
number)
2. Press SCAN to view defined routes and press CLEAR to erase
a defined route.
3. Choose the line pool that contains the lines for local
calling.
4. Enter the DialOut digits (if any) which are needed to direct
the call once it is connected to an external line.
Note: For local calls only, there are no DialOut numbers.
Compare this with Setting up a route for long distance
calling on page 401.
5. Now you need to set up a destination code that will use this
route during the various schedules. Since users will dial 9
to make an external call, 9 should be the destination code.
(Services/Routing Service/Dest Codes)
6. At Show DstCode: press ADD and enter 9.
Tips - If entering a code other than 9, a valid destination
code must be used. See Dest codes on page 395.
To view existing destination codes press ‘ before
entering a new code.

Setting up a route for long distance calling
Installer password required
An office may have leased lines or E&M trunks which make it
cheaper to call long distance.
The routing should take place automatically when the number
of the outgoing call begins with 1.
The first step is to build a route (under Services/Routing
Service/Routing).
1. At Route:, enter 002 (or any other available route number)
2. Choose the line pool where the discounted lines for calling
long distance have been placed. Example: Line pool B.
3. Then you need to assign the route to the destination code
and to the destination code schedules. (under Services/
Routing Service/Dest Codes)
4. At DstCode: enter a valid destination code.
Example: 1403
Refer to Dest codes on page 395.
Tip - To view existing destination codes press ‘
before entering a new code.
Tip - The destination code can use a different route
depending on which schedule is being used. Refer to Services
in the Modular ICS 7.1 System Coordinator Guide for
information about using schedules. In the above example, the
system uses Route 002, which uses Line pool B, to take
advantage of the lower cost when the system is in normal
mode.

6. Press CHANGE and enter the defined route number 002.
7. Press ≠.
The AbsorbLength prompt appears. The default is All.
8. Press CHANGE to choose the number of digits that need to
be absorbed before dialout. In this case, it would be 0, as 1
needs to be dialed out before the rest of the digits.
Tips - The digit absorption setting (AbsorbLength) only
applies to a maximum of two schedules.
Setting AbsorbLength to 0 (zero) minimizes the effort
involved in preparing destination codes. With a 0 setting, the
actual digits dialed by a caller are preserved in the dialout
sequence. Programming a DialOut sequence as part of the
route is not necessary.
Tips - If rates change depending on the time of the day or
week, a different route can be used for the same destination
code 1 when a particular schedule is in use. See Programming

based on the digits dialed. Digits dialed must match an entry in
the second dial tone table to enable a second dial tone. Dial
tone occurs on the line until another digit is dialed, a timeout
occurs, or the user hangs up.
Up to 10 separate entries can be stored in the second dial tone
table. The maximum digit length for each entry is four. Each
entry must be unique and cannot conflict with:
•
Internal DNs

when the Call Transfer feature is activated.
Adding a long distance carrier access code
Installer password required
In many cases, long distance service uses the same lines as
local service but the call is switched to a specific carrier using
an access number. This number is sometimes called an equal
access code. Programming for routing can include this access
number so users only need to dial the set number, as described
below:
1. Create a route that uses a line pool containing local lines
only.
2. Program the route to use a line pool containing the lines
used to access the long distance carriers.
a. Enter the DialOut digits, which are the same as the
carrier code digits. For example, if the access code was
10222, the DialOut digits would be 10222.
Carrier codes are defined in Carrier Codes on page 461.
b. Create a destination code 91.
9 (for outside access) and 1 (for long distance). Refer to
Dest codes on page 395 to determine a valid code.
Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide
N0130943 01
Services / 405
c. Set AbsorbLength to 1.
The 9 is only used internally and should be dropped.
The 1 is needed to direct the call to the public carrier
network.
Tips - The destination codes 9 and 91 used in the examples
cannot be used together. If the destination code 91 is needed to
direct long distance calls, you must create a separate set of
codes that use local calling routes. These codes would be, for
example, 90, 92, 93, 94, 95, 96, 97, 98 and 99. See Wild card

It may be cheaper to use another long distance carrier at
another time of day.
Continuing with the example used in the previous flowchart,
the lines that supply local service in Normal mode will also be
used for long distance service after 6 p.m. because that is when
rates become competitive. For the system to do this
automatically, another route has to be built.
1. At Route: choose Route 007 (or any available route).
2. Press ≠.
3. At DialOut, press CLR to choose No numbr.
4. Press ≠.
5. Choose Line pool A, or the pool with the local service

13. Set AbsorbLength to 1.
The 9 will be absorbed before the number is dialed out to
the network. This means, that when the Night schedule is
chosen, either automatically by time, or manually from a
control telephone, the calls dialed with 91 will dial out to
the long distance network without requiring a special
access code.
To set up multiple alternative routes, refer to the next section,

Overflow routing
If all the lines used by a route are busy when a call is made, the
mode may be programmed to overflow to the route used for
normal mode. If this happens, the telephone will sound a
warning tone and display the message Expensive route. The
caller can then release the call to avoid using the Normal route,
or continue with the call.
Also refer to the section on Multiple least cost routing on the
preceding page.
Overflow routing is turned on or off for each schedule when
you program the destination codes schedule.
Press CHANGE to select the setting: Y (Yes) or N (No).
Refer to the Overflow call routing section of the Modular ICS
7.1 Coordinator Guide for details about how to set up
overflow routing.
Tips - A schedule must be active for overflow routing to be
in effect. Overflow routing is not available in Normal mode.
You must create an overflow route to be used with each
destination code. In this way, every route used with a
scheduled mode that has overflow service must have an
alternate route in Normal service.

Using dialing restrictions with routing
Installer password required
Routing service can be further customized by adding dialing
filters to lines in line pools. Filters restrict the use of the line to
specific area codes. See Restriction filters on page 104 and the
Programming chapter of the Modular ICS 7.1 System
Coordinator Guide for more information.
Tips - You can also use routing as an alternative method
for a direct-dial number. For example, create a destination
code 0 and program the number of the internal or external
destination as the DialOut. Digit absorption should be set to 1.
Because overflow routing directs calls using alternate line
pools, a call may be affected by different line filters when it is
handled by overflow routing.
Tips - Host system signaling codes can be part of the
DialOut. See the Modular ICS 7.1 System Coordinator Guide
for details on host system signaling codes.

Sys speed dial / 411
Sys speed dial
System speed dial allows you to configure speed dial codes
(001 - 255) that can be used by any telephone on the system to
dial pre-programmed numbers.
If you specify a name with the speed dial entry, an incoming
call on a CLID line with a dialed number that matches the
speed dial entry will display the name as part of the CLID
display on the receiving telephone or when ≤°⁄⁄ is
invoked to display call information. This method of using the
system speed dial entries for CLID display is called
Alpha tagging.
Note: Alpha tagging is only invoked when the CO line service
does not supply a name for the incoming call. It will
only occur on telephones that have Caller ID set turned
on (Telco features on page 357).
The CLID Match setting (CLID match on page 446) determines
how many digits of the received number must match the
system speed dial number to be accepted as a CLID match to
allow the name display to occur.
For more information about using and programming System
speed dial, refer to the Modular ICS 7.1 System Coordinator
Guide.
For information about configuring the system so that the name
displays first, refer to 1stDisplay on page 359.

Passwords
COS pswds
Class of Service (COS) passwords permit controlled access to
system resources by both internal and remote users.
When you enter a COS password at a telephone, the restriction
filters associated with your password apply instead of the
normal restriction filters. Similarly, when a remote user enters
a COS password on an incoming auto-answer line, the
restriction filters and remote package associated with their
COS password apply instead of the normal restriction filters
and remote package.
COS pswds allows you to define individual passwords and
determine the restriction filters and remote package associated
with each.
Tips - The Class of Service passwords for a system should
be determined randomly and should be changed on a regular
basis.
Users should memorize their COS passwords. COS passwords
should be deleted when an employee leaves the company.
Tips - Typically, each user has a separate password.
Alternately, several users can share a password or one user
can have several passwords.
A system can have a maximum of 100 six-digit COS passwords
(00 to 99).
You can use COPY and the dialpad to copy the restriction
filters and remote package from one COS password to
another. COS passwords must be unique.

System prgming allows you to set up features and settings
which are not associated with any specific line or telephone.
Hunt groups
The Hunt groups feature allows a group of telephones to be
called by a single directory number, ensuring that calls are
easily routed to the appropriate group.
The default setting for Hunt groups is Broadcast. Hunt group
statistics are available under Usage Metrics on page 583.
Hunt groups can be used to route calls to a support service such
as a Help Line for a software company. Specialists dealing
with Product A can be in one group. Specialists dealing with
Product B can be in another group. Incoming calls will target
a specific group and hunt for the next available telephone in
the group. If no telephone is available, the call can be placed
in a queue or can be routed to an overflow telephone.
The Hunt groups subheading in system programming is the
area that programming changes are made to the following:
•
•
•
•
•
•
members of a group
member position in a group
what lines are assigned to a group
how incoming calls are distributed
how long the system looks for available agents
where a call goes if all agents are busy
Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide

The hunt group setting impacts other features:
•
Call forwards set on telephones that are members of a hunt
group are overridden by the hunt group routing.
•
Telephones which are members of a hunt group can
temporarily leave a group by activating the DND feature.
•
Wireless twinning can be enabled if a hunt group appears
on the portable as well as the set.
•
Priority calls to a hunt group will be rejected
•
Hunt group set numbers cannot be in a ringing group.
•
Hunt group set numbers cannot be in a page zone.
•
Hunt group member line keys take precedence over Hunt
group key, therefore, it is recommended that you do not
assign any lines to telephones which are part of the hunt
group. If you do assign lines to a hunt group telephone,
ensure they do not duplicate any of the lines assigned to the
Hunt Group DN (Upgraded systems: 707-736; 7.1
systems: 739-768).
Note: Do not program videophones as members of a hunt
group. Hunt groups allow one B channel connection at
a time and videophones use two B channels.
Adding or removing members from a group
•
Members of the group can be any system telephone, ISDN
telephone, or portables.
•
A telephone can be in more than one hunt group, but is
considered a member in each hunt group, increasing the
total number of members in the system.
•
There will be only one appearance of the same hunt group
on a telephone, regardless of how many lines are assigned
to the hunt group. The appearance can be set to:
Appr&Ring, Appr only, or Ring only.

Tip - You must program the DNs for telephones you want to
use for hunt group members outside the hunt group DN range.
•
If you want the enhanced central answering position
(eCAP) to display Hunt Group appearances in order to
monitor activity, the 7316E digital phone must be a
member of the hunt group. Hunt group appearances can be
moved from the main telephone to the extended key
indicator modules (eKIMs) using ≤•°⁄. Refer to

Setting the distribution mode
There are three modes of call distribution:
•
Broadcast — rings each telephone in the group
simultaneously. Calls are handled one at a time, other calls
are queued. As soon as a call is picked up, the call next in
the queue is presented to the hunt group without waiting
for queue timeout.
•
Sequential — starts the call at the first telephone in the
hunt group. Distribution is complete when the first free
telephone is found. This telephone is the only one that
rings for this call. Simultaneous calls can be presented.
Distribution is order based, so ensure your hunt group
members are listed in priority. Refer to Moving members
of a group on page 423 and Setting the hunt delay on page
425.
Rotary — the call starts at the telephone after the one
which last answered a call. Distribution is complete when
the next free telephone is found. Simultaneous calls can be
presented. Distribution is order based, but this mode
ensures that all members of the group are receiving calls,
rather than one person receiving the majority of calls.

each telephone record to indicate which lines will log calls.
Refer to Call log set on page 358.
Ensure that the user has adequate space for the expected call
logs. Each user can also activate autobumping, to ensure that,
when the log is full, old logs are deleted to allow room for new
records.
WARNING: If you change this value on a
configured system, all existing logs will be
deleted.
Call log space
Call log space programming customizes how log space is
allocated to telephones in the system.
Reset all logs allows you to reallocate the Call log space
equally to all telephones in your system.
1. Press YES and use the dialpad to enter the space allocation
for the Call log at each telephone.
You must use a three-digit number (for example, 020 to
give each set 20 spaces).
2. Press YES to accept the settings and end programming. The
system automatically reallocates Log space.
N0130943 01
Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide

Press NO to keep existing settings.
Tips - Use this heading only if you want to allocate an
equal amount of log space to all the telephones in your system.
If you want to assign specific log space to individual
telephones, see the information under Terminals&Sets in the
Modular ICS 7.1 System Coordinator Guide.
Reallocating Call log space may destroy Call log data at
telephones that lose space.
There are 600 Call log spaces available in the system. There
are no spaces allocated by default.
Changing the space allocation using Log Defaults defines the
log space available to all telephones in the system. Any
remaining unassigned log space is available in a log pool, and
can be reallocated under Terminals&Sets in Telco
features.
Host delay
Host delay allows you to assign the delay between the moment
an outgoing line is selected to make an external call, for
example, by lifting the receiver off the telephone, and the
moment that Norstar sends dialed digits or codes on the line.
Press CHANGE to select the setting: 200, 400, 600, 800,
1000, 1200, 1400, 1600, 1800, or 2000 milliseconds.
Tips - Host delay is provided to ensure that a dial tone is
present before the dialing sequence is sent. Minimizing this
delay provides faster access to the requested features.

number, autodial settings, personal speed dial codes, and any
programming for that telephone.
Press CHANGE to select the setting: N (No) and Y (Yes).
Tips - It is advisable to activate Set relocation after the
telephone installation and programming is complete. This
provides you with more flexibility in testing equipment.
Warning
If this feature is deactivated while a telephone is
moved, the internal number and programming
data for that telephone remain with the physical
port on the ICS, and the telephone does not
receive the original programming when it is
reconnected elsewhere.
If you plug a new telephone into the original
location before you reinstall the moved
telephone, the programming moves to the new
telephone and the moved telephone must be
reprogrammed.
Msg reply enh
The Message reply enhancement feature allows for the
message waiting indicator on analog telephones connected to
an Analog Station Module (ASM) to be deactivated
automatically if the reply call from the analog telephone to the
designated direct-dial telephone is answered, no matter where
the call is answered from by the user.
Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide
N0130943 01
System prgrming / 441
This feature also functions if the user invokes the Call Pickup
feature to answer the reply call from the analog set. It does not,
however, work with the Retrieve Parked Call feature.
Press CHANGE to select the setting: Y (Yes) and N (No).
Tips - Direct-dial telephones are the only telephones that
can send messages (using ≤⁄) to analog telephones
connected to an Analog Station Module (ASM). The directdial telephone must be the designated direct-dial set for the
analog telephone receiving a message.
Answer key
Up to eight answer DNs can be assigned per telephone. The
Answer key setting in Featr settings allows you to
determine what types of calls will alert at the telephone for the
Answer DNs assigned to any telephone.

answer keys will ring for overflow call routed calls
(special case of Prime set call capture)
Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide
442 / System prgrming
•
answer keys will not ring for line transferred calls
The Extended setting allows all call types to ring, except
priority calls and voice calls.
Phantom DNs
A Phantom DN is the term used to describe a situation where
a line is programmed to appear and ring on a telephone that
does not physically exist. It allows you to create an Answer
Key for the line that does not exist on an existing telephone.
You would use a phantom DN in the case where you have
taken a line out of service, such as a customer-response line,
but you still get calls to that number. To handle the calls, create
an answer key using the phantom DN on the telephone where
you want these calls to be taken.
Setting SWCA controls
On the system, under Feature Settings, SWCA Cntl you
define how incoming calls get associated to System-wide Call
Appearance (SWCA) buttons and how Hold will handle these
calls.
Tips - Since SWCA buttons use the Park feature, ensure
that you have Park turned on for your system by specifying a
Park prefix (Access codes), and a park timeout setting
(System programming, Featr settings).
Describing SWCA control functions
The Auto Associate settings determine if answered calls will
automatically be associated to SWCA buttons, and for what
duration.

an available SWCA button/code. The user must still press
the SWCA button or enter the SWCA code to park the call.
The call remains assigned to that code until the call is
terminated.
Auto ASSC I/C (Y, N): If set to Yes, calls that arrive assigned
to the intercom button are automatically associated with a
SWCA code. If the user presses ≤•fi¤‚ (park on
next free SWCA code), the call parks on the assigned code.
The Invoke by Hold setting determines if a SWCA call put on
Hold can be picked up from other extensions in the group.
Note: These settings do not apply to the 7000 and 7100 digital
phones and the Digital Mobility phone.
•
If you want the call to be available to be picked up by other
members of the groups when you put a call on Hold, set
Invoke by Hold: to Y. A flashing indicator appears beside
the SWCA key when the call assigned to that key is put on
Hold.
•
If you want calls to remain on Hold only at the telephone
where the call is received, set Invoke by Hold: to N. Even
if you set this field to N, users can still put selected calls on
SWCA hold, by pressing a free SWCA key rather than the
Hold key to camp the call.
N0130943 01
Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide

SWCA hold I/C (Y, N): If set to Yes, calls that arrive on the
intercom button, that are put on hold by the user, are
automatically associated with a SWCA code and are available
to other uses with access to that code once the call is parked.
Note that Invoke by Hold must also be set to Yes for this
feature to work.
Refer to the DN record section of this guide for information
about assigning non-visible SWCA call groups (Capabilities

Overview about assigning SWCA codes to telephones
You can either assign SWCA codes as a feature to physical
buttons with indicators on a telephone through Button
programming (Terminals&Sets, User prefernces) or by
assigning them to a memory key at the telephone.
You can also assign SWCA codes to the telephone that are not
connected to a button on the telephone. This is performed
using the SWCA call group heading under Capabilities for
each telephone record. This type of assignment is particularly
apt for 7000 and 7100 digital phones and to the Digital
Mobility phone. Refer to Capabilities on page 345.
Non-button SWCA assignments are controlled by feature
codes ≤•fi¤⁄ to ≤•fi‹fl.
Refer to the SWCA User Card for details about using SWCA
assignments.
Tip - Software versions previous to MICS 7.0 use the
feature range ≤•fi¤‚ to ≤•fi‹fi.
N0130943 01
Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide
446 / System prgrming
Tip - Users can assign calls to any SWCA code. However,
they can only retrieve calls using codes that are assigned to
their telephones. Auto assign conditions will only assign calls
to codes assigned to the telephone receiving the call.
CLID match
This setting determines the minimum number of digits that an
external call must match to an existing system speed dial

Direct-dial
Direct-dial allows you to dial a single system-wide digit that
can be used to call a specific telephone, called a Direct-dial
telephone. The most common example of a Direct-dial
telephone would be telephone for an operator, a receptionist,
or an attendant.
D-Dial1
For the direct-dial telephone, indicate whether it is an internal
or external number. A total of five Direct-dial telephones can
be programmed on the system.
Use ≠ and CHANGE to select the setting: Intrnl,
Extrnl, or None.
Intrnl/Extrnl#
Enter the internal or external number that the system will
automatically dial when someone enters the direct-dial digit.
Use ≠, CHANGE, and the dialpad to enter the
telephone number.
The default number for the direct-dial telephone is 221, on the
default three-digit DN system.
Line selection
If you assign an external number as a direct-dial telephone,
you must indicate which line to use for the call.
Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide
N0130943 01
System prgrming / 449
Use ‘, CHANGE, and the dialpad to select the line for
the external number.
Tips - There is just one direct-dial digit for the entire
system.
The Norstar system cannot verify that the number you assign
as an external direct-dial telephone is valid. Check the
number before assigning it, then call the direct-dial telephone
after you’ve assigned it to test it.
You cannot forward calls to any direct-dial telephone that is
outside your Norstar system. For more information, refer to
the Modular ICS 7.1 System Coordinator Guide.
CAP/KIM assign
Installer password required
This setting designates a telephone as an enhanced central
answering position (eCAP). A maximum of five designated
eCAPs can be installed in a Modular ICS system. The system
can support more CAP configurations that are not designated
in programming as eCAPs. Refer to the Tips below for
information about the difference between OKIMs and eKIMs.
•
Key indicator modules (KIMs). KIMs that are attached to
7316E digital phones that have been designated as eCAPs
are called eKIMs.
A 7316E+KIM which is not assigned with the DN of the
telephone under CAP/KIM assgn, is called an ordinary
KIM (OKIM). OKims support memory button
programming, only.
•
Legacy hardware: Existing systems may have 7324 digital
phones attached to CAP modules.
The eCAP can be used to:
•
N0130943 01
monitor the busy/not busy and Do Not Disturb status of
system telephones
Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide

eKIMs can also support multiple appearances of a target
lines and Hunt group designators.
Use ≠, CHANGE and the dialpad to enter the internal
number of the telephone.
Press ‘ to scroll through the five CAP/KIM
positions.
Tips - A SAPs is not required for 7316E digital phones with
four or fewer KIMs. If the KIMs are designated as eKIMS, you can
only attach a maximum of four modules to a 7316E. Add a SAPS
if more than four OKIMs are added to the 7316E.
If you replace a legacy 7324+CAP unit with a 7316E+KIM, only
the line assignments are copied to the new telephone, but not to the
KIM. The telephone programming will revert to the default
settings. If you move an OKIM from one 7316E to another, the
KIM will retain memory button programming. However, if you
move an eKIM from one 7316E to another, programming will not
follow
Dialing Plan
Installer password required
The dialing plan acts as a system directive that determines how
a number will be dialed out by the system. This feature works
with enbloc dialing, and, therefore, is only used for PRI lines.
The Dialing Plan has these features:
•
allows public or private routing for network calls
•
private routing allows the choice of either the uniform
dialing plan (UDP) or a coordinated dialing plan (CDP)
Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide
N0130943 01
System prgrming / 451
•
allows enbloc dialing by buffering user-dialed digits until
a complete DN has been dialed. Enbloc dialing is the
default for PRI. However, you can specify Overlap Dialing
where you require a break in a dialing sequence to wait for
a PRI line-generated dialtone.
•
provides the ability to map user-dialed digits to a service
type on a Call by Call basis
•
allows incoming calls to be routed according to the service
type and the digits received
DN lengths (enbloc dialing)
The Private DN Length must be set to the number of digits
users dial to reach other nodes in a private network. The
Private DN Length parameter is used by the PRI trunk to
determine when a complete number has been dialed. The
PSTN DN Length Table is used by the PRI trunk to determine
when a complete PSTN DN has been dialed. Entries in the DN
Length table consist of two fields: Prefix and DN Length.
TIP - You do not need to use a Private DN Length if you
are using the coordinated dialing plan (CDP), as the system
identifier is part of the set DN.

Dial Timeout
Dial Timeout (interdigit timeout) specifies how long the ICS
will wait between user-dialed digits. This value allows the ICS
to determine when the user has stopped dialing. The value is
programmed under System progrming, Dialing Plan.
The user can also use the # key to tell the ICS that they are
finished dialing. However, this is not usually required, except
for international calls where the number of digits dialed for
country codes varies.

Line pool codes
Installer password required
This setting allows you to assign a line pool access code for
each of the 15 line pools (A to O). These codes are used to
specify the line pool you want to use for making an outgoing
external call.
If your system is installed without expansion cards, the DN
default is two digits. Therefore, B1 DNs will be from 21 to 52
N0130943 01
Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide
456 / System prgrming
and the B2 DNs are assigned from 53 to 84. The B2 DN range
is 80 to 84. Therefore, the single digit 8 is not available for a
line pool access code.
Use ≠, CHANGE, the dialpad, and OK to program the
access code.
The default access code is 9 for Line Pool A, and None for
Line Pool B to O.
For ISDN-PRI line pool settings, see Line Pools on page 474.
Tips - The code can be one to four digits in length.
A line pool access code can be the same as an external line
access code. In this case, the line pool access code takes
priority over the external line access code, and a line from the
line pool is selected.
A line pool access code cannot conflict with:
•
the Park prefix
•
the Direct-dial digit
•
the first digit of any Received number
•
the first digit of any DN (including the Auto DN or
the DISA DN)
•
the first digit of a destination code.
To avoid a conflict, refer to the table of default settings in the
description of External code.

that must be entered to retrieve a parked call. If the Park prefix
is set to None, calls cannot be parked.
Press CHANGE to select the setting: 1 to 9, None, or 0.
Tips - The Park prefix cannot be the same as:
• the Direct-dial digit
• the External Line access code
• the first digit of a DN
• the first digit of a line pool access code
• the first digit of a destination code
If DN length is changed, and the changed DNs conflict with
the Park prefix, the setting changes to None.
Tips - Other programmable settings may affect which
numbers appear on the display during programming.
Although the numbers 0 to 9 are valid Park prefix settings,
some may have been already assigned elsewhere by default or
by programming changes. To avoid a conflict, refer to the
table of default settings in the description of External code.

The Auto DN cannot be the same as a line pool access code or
a destination code.
DISA DN
Installer password required
For calls answered with DISA, the system presents a stuttered
dial tone to prompt a caller to enter a valid password. The
Class of Service (COS) that applies to the call is determined by
this COS password.
Once a remote user is on the Norstar system, the DISA DN can
be used to change the existing Class of Service. This gives you
greater flexibility when you create access privileges. For
example, you may want to have a shared DN for remote access
and separate COS passwords with different dialing out
privileges for individuals.
Use CHANGE and the dialpad to enter the digits to be received
from the auto-answer trunk.
Press CLR to set the DISA DN to None.

Carrier Codes
Installer password required
If you are routing calls with different carriers as you change
schedules, you need to be able to define the access codes for
each carrier you use.
A multi-digit Carrier Access Code (CAC) contains an Equal
Access Identifier Code (EAIC) followed by a
Carrier Identification Code (CIC). The CIC identifies the
carrier to be used to handle the call. The Carrier Access Code
table stores the CAC digit pattern that you define for your
region.
In most cases it is not necessary to change the default values.
The capability is there to modify overall patterns, if required.
•

•
•
you can define up to five entries
two entries will be pre-defined in North America, but you
can remove these defaults
each entry consists of an EAIC prefix (one to six digits)
and a CIC length (one digit, 1 - 9)
each entry is identified by the prefix digits themselves
This code becomes part of the External Number field in Route
programming that will be used to access the carrier. Refer to

Rec’d # length
Installer password required
The Received number length setting allows you to change the
number of digits received on auto-answer trunks. These digits
are used to identify target lines, Auto DNs, and DISA DNs.
Press CHANGE to select the setting: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, or 7. Then,
press ‘ to make the change.
Tips - The target line number (for example, line 052) and

Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide
N0130943 01
System prgrming / 465
Tips - A DN length change, if required, should be the first
programming change on a newly-installed Norstar system.
Each increase in length places the digit 2 in front of any
existing DN. For example, if DN 234 was increased to a
length of 4, the new DN would be 2234.
If the DN length is changed so that a conflict is created with
the Park prefix, external line access code, direct-dial digit, or
any line pool access code, the setting for the prefix or code is
changed to None, and the corresponding feature is disabled.
Do not change DN length immediately after a
system startup.
You must wait for at least two minutes after a
system startup before you change the DN length.
Data devices which use the B2 channel drop calls
when the DN length is changed. Digital phones
retain their calls because they only use the B1
channel.
The DN length change is completed within two
minutes, depending on the size of the installed
Norstar system. System response may briefly
slow down during this time. You cannot re-enter
programming during this time. If you enter the

Network Call Diversion
Norstar Network Call Diversion (NCD) is a network function
that allows forwarding and redirection of calls outside the
Norstar network when using an ETSI ISDN line. Functionality
is similar to that of External Call Forward (ECF).
NCD redirects calls using the same line on which they arrive.
Call forward is efficient since there is no need for additional
outside lines.
Forwarding calls externally from an extension requires the
user to enter either a Destination Code or Line Pool Access
Code, and the number to which calls will be forwarded.
Examples of NCD include:
•
redirecting all calls from an extension to a mobile phone
•
forwarding calls to an external destination (rather than to
voicemail), when an extension is busy or the user is
unavailable.
Feature description
NCD is available only over ETSI ISDN lines. It can be
invoked when calls are presented to Norstar/BST extensions
over ISDN lines. The user must program the selected
extension.
NCD is integrated with the following existing Norstar Call
Forward features:
•
Call Forward Unconditional (CFU)—implemented on
Norstar Call Forward All Calls (CFAC) ≤›, and
Selective Line Redirection (SLR) ≤ ° ›, also
referred to as Line Redirection. This is programmable by
the user.

•
Call Forward on Busy (CFB)—implemented on Norstar
Call Forward Busy.
•
Call Forward on No Response (CFNR)—implemented on
Norstar Call Forward No Answer.
Programming and restrictions
NCD features are accessed through existing Norstar features.
Extensions requiring redirection must be programmed
individually to either CFAC or SLR. CFB or CFNA must be
set during programming. Allow redirect must be set to Yes
for each extension, in Terminals&Extns/Capabilities.
Note: Any other programming applied to specific lines and
extensions take precedence, for example
Restrictions(extns) under Terminals&Extns.
NCD is used as long as the affected lines are ETSI ISDN, and
the affected DID lines are accessible via ISDN lines. Incoming
calls are diverted back to the ISDN. If NCD fails due to
network errors, ECF is invoked. If ECF cannot be executed,
the incoming call is routed to the prime extension for the line.
ATTENTION!
If a line is configured to appear on several extensions with
redirection programmed, predicting which extension will divert
the call is not possible. This should be considered during system
configuration.
An extension with CFB, CFNA and CFAC programmed will
give priority to CFAC for diversion.

Selective Line Redirection
Selective Line Redirection (SLR), also referred to as Line
Redirection, is enhanced for use with digital lines and operates
in conjunction with NCD.
Diversion by SLR takes precedence over diversion by CFAC.
An SLR line cannot be diverted by CFAC. If the call arrives
on an extension with SLR programmed, a ring splash will
sound (if programmed).
For information on SLR restrictions refer to Malicious call
identification (MCID) on page 485. For information on
redirecting lines see Line Redirection in the Modular ICS
System Coordinator Guide.
Programming Extensions
The User Interface for programming NCD is the same as for
ECF.
Different types of Call Forward are available depending on the
extension being programmed. Programming an extension to
forward calls externally requires the user to enter a destination
code or line pool number, in addition to the external phone
number. Therefore, care should be taken to identify your
network line types and record the available codes and line
pools.
Enhanced Caller ID
When a telephone which has Call Line Identifier (CLID)
active receives a redirected call due to NCD, the user will see
the DN for the Calling Number. This is followed by an arrow
icon (>) and the redirecting number. This is displayed for as
long as the call is active (alerting or answered) at that
telephone.
Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide
N0130943 01
Network Services / 485
If the alerting extension is not the CLID extension for that line,
the line appearance can be pressed to briefly display the
information. Pressing ≤°⁄⁄ or INFO while the call is
active invokes Call Info. Call Info on DPNSS displays the
redirecting number and the reason for the redirection.
Note: When Norstar requests that an incoming call be
redirected by the distance network, Norstar does not
inform the network of the redirecting DN. In this case,
the diverted-to party will not see the diverting party
DN.
Malicious call identification (MCID)
The MCID feature allows the user to press ≤°·‡ to
have call information recorded on the central office system for
an incoming call on a specific line (ETSI PRI lines, only).
The user must invoke the feature code either during the active
call or within 30 seconds (time varies on different networks)
after the caller hangs up. The feature will not work once the
called party hangs up.
Note: This feature must be allowed in network programming
for your PRI lines from your service provider.
The following information registers on the network:
•
called party number
•
calling party number
•
local time and date of the invocation in the network serving
the called user
•

provided by calling user)

Setting up the modules for ONN blocking
To utilize ONN blocking, the CO is alerted by two methods,
either the Vertical Service Code (VSC) or the suppression bit
method. Each method depends on the type of trunk involved in
placing the outgoing call.
Analog trunks use a dialing digit sequence called VSC. Most
COs use the suppression bit method for ONN. You will need
to use the VSC ONN if your CO does not support the
suppression bit method. The VSC differs from region to region
and must be programmed.
•
Analog trunks with both tone and pulse dialing trunks can
have separate VSCs.
•
BRI trunks support one VSC.
•
PRI trunks do not utilize the VSC.
The second method used to alert the CO is by a suppression bit
packaged within the call setup message. BRI trunks can use
either method.
Note: PRI trunks only support the suppression bit method
of signalling the CO to block the outgoing Name
and Number to the calling party, therefore, no
additional programming is required.
When you program ONN blocking on a BRI module, you must
indicate which method the BRI trunk will use. The module
loop setting supports two ONN states. You must program the
BRI loop to match the method supported by your service
provider.
•
If SrvcCode is programmed, then the VSC programmed
under Telco Features is used.
•
If SuprsBit is programmed, then the suppression bit will
be packaged in the call setup message.

Received Digits to find a target line.
For example, the incoming calling party number is
800-555-1234. The received digit number length is 4.
Therefore, 1234 is used to route the call.
Depending on the protocol and the service, alternate routing
maps may be defined.

digits. In all cases, the received digits are used to find a
target line or to activate Remote Access.
None — No mapping is applied. The received number
length determines the number of digits of the Called Party
Number which will be used as received digits.
If there is no called party number, which may occur with
some FX calls, the call will ring at the incoming trunk
Prime set.
All — Allows you to define the received digits used for all
calls with this service type, regardless of the called party
number or service identifier (SID). For this option, all calls
with this service type on this PRI will ring the same target
line.

No SPIDs assignd
T and NT loops can be assigned a system profile identifier
(SPID) as supplied by your service provider. No SPIDs are
assigned by default.
When the loop type is T, calls on the loop are handled for a
network connection only. If any other ISDN equipment is
connected to the loop, it must be configured as an S loop to
ensure proper call handling.
1. Press ADD and enter the first or second SPID assigned to
the loop.
If there are two SPIDs already assigned to the loop, ADD
will not appear until one is removed.
2. Press REMOVE to clear a SPID.
Note: Profile 2 loops do not require SPIDs.
# of B-channels
Press CHANGE to select the number of B-channels that are
associated with the SPID: 1 or 2.
When you order an ISDN capability package that supplies two
B-channels, you may receive one or two SPIDs from your
service provider.
•
If you receive one, it usually means you will configure the
SPID to use two B-channels.
•
If you receive two, it usually means you will configure
each SPID with one B-channel. Check with your service
provider if you are not sure about the proper configuration.

Network DNs
1. Press ≠ to display the DNs which are used with
the SPID.
2. Press ADD and enter the appropriate number to assign
additional Network DNs to the SPID.
The Modular ICS can have a maximum of 128 Network DNs
for the system. There is no limit to the number of Network
DNs for each SPID, but you cannot exceed the limit of 128
Network DNs for the system.
If the Network DN you try to enter is already assigned to a
SPID with a call type of Both, you will not be able to assign
the DN again.
If the Network DN you enter is already assigned to a SPID and
the call type is Voice or Data, it will be automatically
programmed with the unused call type. For example, if the DN
has Call type set to Voice in the previous SPID assignment, it
will be automatically set to handle Data calls when the same
DN is added to the other SPID.
Call type
Press CHANGE to select the call type of the Network DN:
Voice, Data, or Both.
CHANGE will not appear if the Network DN is already in use by
the system and the call type will be automatically programmed
with the unused call type. For example, if the DN has Call type
set to Voice in a previous SPID assignment, it will be
automatically set to handle Data calls when the DN is entered
the second time.

Clock Src
Installer password required
Systems with digital interfaces need to synchronize to the
network in order to function. Synchronization is performed in
a hierarchical way, where each device/switch obtains the
network clock from the device/or switch above it in the
synchronization hierarchy and passes the network clock to the
device/switch below it in the synchronization hierarchy. The
synchronization levels are referred to as strata.
Norstar systems are stratum 4E equipment and are usually
used as termination points in a network.
For each on-core DTI, choose one of the following settings:
•
Primary reference: The DTI obtains the timing reference
from the network, to which the system synchronizes. This
is the default value for the DTI in slot 1 in the ICS. If the
system is configured with a DTI card that has been
configured as PRI, the setting should be set to Primary.
•
Secondary reference (Secndry): The DTI acts as a
standby reference. If there are excessive errors on the
primary reference T1 link, or the DTI designated as
primary reference fails, this DTI will obtain the timing
reference from the network, which the system
synchronizes to. This is the default value for the DTI in slot
2 in the ICS.
•
Timing master (TimeMst): The DTI does not obtain
timing from the network, but transmits the systems timing
to equipment connected to it.
WARNING: An
off-core DTI needs to be left
on free run
N0130943 01
Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide
518 / Hardware
Tips - If a BRI card becomes clock source, it will have up
to four clock sources available (T, S, U-NT, NT loops only).
Only when all four clock sources have an alarm will the card
cause a switch to the secondary or hold-over state.
BRI -T, S, and U-NT interface loops may be autonomously
powered down by the network. This will be treated as a loss
of clock source on that loop.
The installer should ensure that clock source loops are
either not powered down or are among the last to be
powered down.
If BRI cards are used only for S-loops, a Service Card is
required only if the DTI is T1. However, a Services Card is
recommended when a T1 is not used, since the card improves
clock accuracy and performance.
If BRI cards are used off-core, they still require a connection
to the network, which requires the SC, and an on-core digital
clock source.
For more information about network synchronization,
consult the appropriate private digital network
synchronization standards.
The following illustrations show some typical network
configuration and the appropriate clock source settings for
your DTIs.

Tips - In most T1 network configurations, you need one
DTI or DTI card configured as PRI in your ICS to act as a
primary reference. The only application where you might not
have a DTI or a DTI card configured as PRI designated as
primary reference is in a network where your Norstar system
is connected back-to-back with another switch using a T1 link.
If the other switch is loop-timed to your Norstar system, your
DTI or DTI card configured as PRI can be designated as a
timing master.
Tips - (continued) If your Norstar system has two or more
DTIs, you cannot assign more than one DTI as primary
reference or all of the DTIs as secondary reference.
You can only have one primary reference and one secondary
reference per system. See T1 or ISDN-PRI configurations for
more information.

Event messages / 555
Event messages
Event messages appear as items in the System administration
log or the System test log of the Maintenance session. Most of
these event messages can only be caused by an unusual
combination of events, and should rarely occur.
Each event is assigned a severity number. An S preceding this
number, S4 for example, may appear in the event message.
S9 is the most severe. If the log is full, new event messages
with a higher severity number replace existing event messages
of a lower severity. For this reason, you should check event
messages at regular intervals. You can then deal with all
messages before they are replaced.
Dealing with event messages
For every event message that you see:
1. Record the event on the appropriate Maintenance record.
2. Refer to Significant event messages.
3. To see if the event caused the Norstar system to
automatically restart, consult the table on Event Message
on page 561.

Displays
You should rarely see any event messages that are not
described in the Significant event messages on page 556. If
you do see one of these event messages, the Norstar system has
followed its normal recovery from an unusual combination of
system events. Although the problem is not a serious one,
repeated occurrences of the event number should be reported
as soon as possible.
As a result of some events, the Norstar system automatically
restarts itself. The table on the next two pages lists all the event
numbers and tells you which of these events are associated
with Norstar system restarts.

Provisioning BRI and PRI lines
This section discusses how you put BRI and PRI lines into and
out of service.
BRI and T1 lines
Installer password required
Provisioning applies to BRI and T1 loops and lines. It allows
you to place loops and lines in or out of service, either before
or after the BRI Cards have been installed in the ICS.
When you provision a loop, ISDN terminals on the loop can be
used to make outgoing calls or receive incoming calls
(S or U-LT loop).
Loop lines are also available for use by the devices attached to
the system (T, S, or U-NT loop). When you are configuring a
T, S, or NT loop, you must also provision each line on the loop
to place the lines in service.
Cd1-ICS
The card type will appear with the setting. If no card has been
installed, you can change the card type under Hardware.
1. Press ≠ to display the loops found on the card.
2. Press REMOVE to take the loop out of service.

566 / Tests
Tests
Norstar allows you to run tests which verify the integrity of the
installation wiring for the telephones.
In addition, you can evaluate the transmission quality of a BRI
loop through your service provider using a loopback test to
evaluate different aspects and segments of the T1 digital
transmission path. You can only run one loopback test at a
time on any one DTI.
Choose an appropriate time to run tests.
Do not run the loopback tests while ports are
being disabled or during the first two minutes
after Startup programming. If you do, the tests
may stop running with ports still disabled. To
recover from this, unplug the ICS from the power
outlet, then plug it in again.
The loopback tests disrupt service. Do not run
tests during busy user times.

The line loopback test loops the full 1.544 Mbps signal
received from the network back to the network. The looped
signal is regenerated without any change in the framing format
and without the removal of any bipolar violations. The line
loopback test can also be invoked and stopped remotely using
the in-band signal or via the facility data link (FDL) in
extended super frame (ESF) format.
The line loopback test must be run in coordination with the T1
or PRI service provider. Some test patterns can cause the DTI
to reset. To avoid this, start the line loopback test from your
system before the T1 or PRI service provider begins their test,
and stop the line loopback test from your system after the T1
or PRI service provider ends their test.

574 / CSU stats
CSU stats
Each DTI is equipped with an internal channel service unit
(CSU). When enabled, the internal CSU monitors the quality
of the received T1 signal and provides performance statistics
and diagnostic information.
DTIs must be individually programmed to establish
parameters for collecting and measuring transmission
performance statistics by the CSU.
Statistics
Installer password required
The CSU provides both performance and alarm statistics.
Three performance parameters are accumulated:
•
errored seconds (ES-P)
•
severely errored seconds (SES-P)
•
unavailable seconds (UAS-P)
These parameters are defined as per TIA-547A. Errored
seconds are enhanced to include control slip (CS) events.
The parameters are stored for the previous 15-minute interval,
the 15-minute intervals in the last 24 hours, and the previous
24-hour interval. Only near-end performance data is recorded.
The internal CSU continuously monitors the received signal
and detects four types of transmission defects:
•
any active carrier failure alarms (CFA) — loss of signal
LOS, out of frame OOF, alarm indication signal AIS,
remote alarm indication RAI
•
the number of bipolar violations that occurred in the last
minute
Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide
N0130943 01
CSU stats / 575
•
any defects that occurred in the last minute — loss of
signal LOS, out of frame OOF, alarm indication signal AIS
the number of milliseconds of short term alarms in the last
minute — loss of signal LOS, out of frame OOF, alarm
indication signal AIS, remote alarm indication RAI.
A shortterm alarm is declared when the detected defects
persist for tens of milliseconds.
•
A carrier failure alarm (CFA) is a duration of carrier system
outage. CFA types reported can be mapped to CFAs defined in
TIA-547A and TR62411 as follows:

Electrical shock hazards from the telecommunication
network and AC mains are possible with this equipment.
To minimize risk to service personnel and users, the
ICS must be connected to an outlet with a third-wire
ground. In addition, all unused slots should have filler
faceplates installed and the doors should be in place at
the completion of any servicing.
Service personnel must be alert to the possibility of high
leakage currents becoming available on metal system
surfaces during power line fault events near network
lines. A risk point on the ICS is the power cord earth
ground pin. These leakage currents normally safely flow
to Protective Earth ground via the power cord.
Therefore, it is mandatory that connection to an
grounded outlet is performed first and removed last
when cabling to the unit. Specifically, operations
requiring the unit to be powered down must have
the network connections (central office lines)
removed first.
Where more than one procedure is given, the procedures
represent different options from which you can select one.

Problems with telephones / 593
Running a Maintenance session to test a dead
telephone
1. Run a Maintenance session to ensure that the telephone is
not disabled. See Port/DN status on page 530.
2. Disable the port to which the telephone is connected, using
Port/DN status.
3. Enable the port to which the telephone is connected, using
Port/DN status.
Replacing a telephone
In a powered-up system, an existing telephone can be replaced
by a new telephone. A new telephone is one that was not
previously in service within the system.
Replacing telephones of the same type
If an existing telephone is unplugged, and a new telephone of
the same type is then plugged into the same jack, for example,
replacing a 7208 digital phone with another 7208 digital
phone, the new telephone acquires the programming and the
internal number of the old telephone. This is normally done to
replace a defective telephone.
Replacing telephones of different types
If an existing telephone is unplugged, and a new telephone of
a different type is plugged into the same jack, the new
telephone keeps the old internal number. The new telephone
receives a default profile for a telephone of its type. You then
need to program the terminal as described in the Modular ICS
7.1 System Coordinator Guide.
If the telephone being replaced has more lines than the new
telephone, automatic outgoing line selection may not work
with the handsfree feature. A line must be selected manually.
N0130943 01
Modular ICS 7.1 Installer Guide
594 / Problems with telephones
Status of a telephone that was replaced
The old telephone that was unplugged and replaced by a new
telephone loses its programming and internal number. The
internal number of the old telephone has been given to the new
telephone. The programming has either been removed or given
to the new telephone when it was plugged into the old jack.
The replaced telephone, if it is plugged back into the system,
is now treated by the system as a telephone not previously in
service.
Note - 7316 and 7316E digital phones have
different default settings on systems running MICS 6.0
and newer software. Therefore, if you replace one type
with the other, all user-programmed settings are lost
and the line numbering changes to reflect the default
numbering for the new telephone.
Emergency telephone dead
1. Verify that the power at the ICS or Trunk Module is not on.
2. Verify that the trunk module allows support for emergency
telephones. Refer to Emergency telephone on page 291.
