Console.NET Installation & User Guide
Chapter 1: Introduction
Introduction
With the competitiveness of business today, the need to differentiate your company
from the competition is crucial. Organizations using a live Attendant to answer calls
rely on the Attendant to present the image of the company to the caller.
Today’s Attendant requires a sophisticated, yet simple-to-use tool to help meet this
challenge. Console.NET provides the capability for Attendants to answer and direct
callers in a more informed and professional manner.
Console.NET displays a directory of extensions and their real-time status. The
Attendant can organize the extensions by groups such as Sales or Support.
Extension buttons may be viewed by extension #, extension name, or both. Extension
detail can also be added to inform the Attendant of information such as; caller ID
name and number, DNIS/DID, target line name, line used, call duration plus much
more.
Color is used extensively to allow the Attendant to quickly identify both line and
extension status. Calls on Hold, Ringing and Parked calls are all quick and easy to
distinguish between. Extension buttons also change color depending upon their
condition including; Idle , Active, Do Not Disturb, Ringing and Message Notification
and Out Of Service phones are all easily identifiable.
Access to Console.NET is via a web browser such as Microsoft's Internet Explorer.
Developed with Microsoft.NET, Console.NET utilizes leading edge technologies such
as Web Services, XML, HTML and SOAP. Benefits of these new technologies are;
ƒ
ƒ
ƒ
ƒ
ƒ
ƒ
Browser Access, no installation is required on the Client PC
LAN or Web access
Multi language
Extension status of remote/networked Norstar or BCM systems
Standards based
Quick and simple installation
Console.NET provides a number of advanced features including;
ƒ
ƒ
ƒ
ƒ
Page 4
Text Messaging allows the Attendant to send a text message to the display of a
Nortel telephone to notify a busy employee of a call.
Sticky Notes is a feature that allows the Attendant to attach a new or predefined message to a call. This assists an Attendant when having to go back to a
caller who has been Parked or placed on Hold.
Message Notification allows the Attendant to add a note to an extension viewed
on the screen for quick information regarding the specific person. For example, a
Notification message could read "sick today".
Telephone Messaging allows any telephone set to select a message that will be
displayed to Console.NET users and other telephones within the office.
Chapter 1: Introduction
ƒ
Call Waiting allows the attendant to send a call waiting to the desired extension
along with a text message to notify the recipient of details about the call. The
recipient can choose from three possible options;
o Take the call
o Send to Voice Mail
o Join as a Conference
From anywhere you have LAN or Web access; you have access to your Norstar or
BCM phone system. If you are using a Nortel Networks BCM, add an IP telephone
and begin answering and directing calls remotely.
Owners and Managers of an organization may login from home or half way around the
world to monitor call activity along with viewing Console.NET call reports.

Chapter 2: Nortel Prerequisites
Norstar CTA Installation
(Norstar Only)
Nortel Networks Norstar phone systems require two Nortel products in order for
Console.NET to operate. Norstar’s Computer Telephony Engine (CTE) is the
software component which allows a computer to communicate with a Norstar KSU
and the Norstar Computer Telephony Adapter (CTA) is the hardware component that
provides the hardware interface between a PC and the Norstar KSU. Norstar CTE is
installed by ConverTec’s PBX Manager after the installation of Console.NET. Norstar
CTA device is available from your Nortel Networks Dealer and must be connected to
the PC that Console.NET is being installed on.
There are 2 different models of CTA devices available from Nortel Networks and
compatible with Console.NET. The CTA 100 is the most affordable, compatible and
easy to install. There are no performance advantages between Norstar CTA devices.
The CTA 200 is also compatible but only using the serial output.
NOTE:
•
At the time of writing, Nortel did not have a CTA device with USB
connection compatible with operating systems required by Console.NET
NOTE:
• As a precaution, un-install any previous versions of Nortel CTA 100 and
Norstar CTE Toolkit from "Add/Remove Programs"
ƒ After un-install is complete, reboot the PC
ƒ Insert the Console.NET installation CD. If the CD fails to auto-launch, click
on Launch from the main directory.
ƒ Click on the choice for Norstar Prerequisites
ƒ Follow the installation of CTA/CTE as described later in this section
ƒ After installation of Norstar Prerequisites and reboot is complete you can
continue to Install Console.NET
Installing the CTA device involves two steps:
1. Connect the supplied serial cable (supplied with CTA 100 from Nortel) to the
serial port on the CTA device and a free serial port on the Console.NET server
NOTE: Since newer computers may not be equipped with serial ports, you
may have to purchase a USB to Serial adapter for connecting a CTA 100
and 200
2. Connect one end of a telephone cable to a live Norstar jack and the other end to
the jack labeled "Line" on the CTA. If the jack you plugged the CTA into originally
had a Norstar phone plugged into it, the Norstar phone can now be plugged into
the jack labeled "Phone" on the CTA. Plug the CTA adapter in to a continuous
120v power outlet
Page 9
Console.NET Installation & User Guide
NOTE:
•
•
The Norstar CTA 100 does not require a dedicated Norstar jack but can
share an existing jack used by a Norstar phone. If you have a Norstar
phone in close proximity to the Console.NET server, the CTA can use this
same Norstar jack as the Norstar phone while maintaining the use of the
phone
You can confirm a Norstar jack is live by plugging a Norstar phone directly
into the jack you intend to use for the CTA. The display on the Norstar
phone will briefly blink and may take up to a minute before the time and
date appears on the Norstar display
CTA 100/200 Serial Port Connection Diagram
BCM LAN CTE Client Installation
(BCM Systems Only)
The BCM’s Local Area Network, Computer Telephony Engine (LAN CTE) Client
provides the interface for Console.NET server to communicate with the BCM(s). The
client is downloadable from the BCM. The LAN CTE Client should be installed on the
same computer designated as the Console.NET server. LAN CTE clients are only able
to communicate to the BCM(s) provided there is an available LAN CTE Desktop Client
license installed on the respective BCM(s).
NOTE:
•
•
Page 10
As a precaution, un-install any existing Nortel Networks LAN CTE client
from "Add/Remove Programs" to ensure the latest version gets installed
All Versions of BCM may require a specific LAN CTE patch to be installed
on the BCM prior to downloading and installing the LAN CTE client. LAN
CTE Patch installations are not documented or supported by ConverTec
and should be performed by an Authorized Nortel Dealer
Chapter 6: Reports
•
•
Confirm you have at least one LAN CTE License before continuing. See
Appendix A
Confirm you can Ping the BCM from the computer you are installing
Console.NET and LANCTE on. See Published IP address in Appendix A
Multiple BCM Installation Note:
One LAN CTE client is capable of communicating to several BCM’s providing the Client
used is compatible with all BCM versions and network communication is established. If
you are connecting Console.NET to multiple BCM’s, install the client from highest BCM
version.

Norstar DN Discovery
In order for Console.NET to function properly, all active extensions (DN’s) must be
monitored. For systems with Voice Mail, all B1 and B2 voice mail DN’s must also be
monitored. Norstar systems are unable to send a list of active extensions to
Console.NET so they must be added manually.
To assist with installation of Norstar, enter the known lowest and highest extension
numbers for automatic discovery of active extensions. Discovery is only required
during initial installation or if many extensions have changed numbers or been added.
Discovery takes about 1 minute for every 20 extensions searched. If there is a wide
difference between extension ranges, you can enter many ranges or individual
extensions to reduce the time involved in discovery. When discovery is complete, PBX
Manager will automatically determine what extensions are active in the range or
individual entries and enter them in the database.
Directory number range entry
• Enter the range lowest number in the "From" column and the highest number in
the "To" column
• Continue adding ranges or individual extensions if required
• Click on "Apply to Service" button to complete

Chapter 6: Reports
Note: The following items highlighted in RED are pre-configured by the PBX
Manager wizard during the installation. Remote Norstar installations require
manual entry.
Add, Delete, Save
• Add new allows manual adding of other system(s) for Console.NET to connect
to. Add new should only be used by experienced users. ConverTec suggest that
the PBX wizard is used for adding new systems.
• Delete will delete the current system selection along with all currently configured
extensions within that system
• Save must be selected in order to make any changes permanent with the
exception of Delete.
Switch Type
This is only displayed when adding a new server. The choices available are Norstar or
BCM. BCM or a single local Norstar switch Type is automatically configured using the
PBX Manager wizard. When adding remote Norstar systems, Norstar must be
selected after clicking "Add New"
Current Switch Name
Lists systems already installed and allows entry of a new switch name when the "Add
new" button is selected. Clicking on the drop down arrow on the right side of the field
allows selection of other installed systems in order to edit the respective system
options.
TCP Address
This is mandatory value and should not be changed without involving ConverTec
support. This is the IP address for PBX service that Console.NET uses to
communicate to the appropriate phone system. For BCM installations, all
communication can take place through the Default address. Remote Norstar
installations require the IP address of the computer running at the remote site.
Port number
This is mandatory value and should not be changed without involving ConverTec
support. Each system connected requires an independent PBX server for
communication. Each PBX server installed on the same system requires a different
Port number. The PBX wizard will assign all port numbers for all PBX Services
running on the same computer. Since remote Norstar installations require manual
entry, enter port 9000.
Use outside Line Prefix
Check this box and add digit(s) that may be required prior to dialing a phone number
from Console.NET. This is typically used for Central Office lines called Centrex where
a digit 9 or 8 may need to be sent in order to get dial tone.
Page 27
Console.NET Installation & User Guide
Note: This setting is not used for access to PRI or Analog line pools
Primary Voice Mail Extension
This extension is determined by pressing "Feature 985" from an idle telephone. This
extension is required in order for Transfer to Voice Mail to function within
Console.NET. If centralized voice mail is used for multiple sites, this value may be the
same for all Systems.
Feature Code
The default Feature Code "990" is used for the optional "Telephone Messaging"
functionality. This feature code is set by the PBX wizard and may be different if a
conflict was detected during the installation. This code should not be changed unless
instructed to do so by ConverTec Support.
Access Codes for PRI Pools
If using Digital Trunking (T1 or PRI), enter the digit required to make an external call in
the Access Codes
Wait Timeout
Determines the time it takes for calls sent to an extension as Call Waiting to ring back
to the attendant if unanswered. The Default timeout is 30 seconds and can be changed
to any time increments of 10 seconds.
Assist DN
Is an extension dedicated to the use of Console.NET for advanced features such as
"Remote Voice Mail Transfer" and "Call Waiting"
Run in Debug Mode
Should only be selected under the supervision of ConverTec support personnel for

Directory Number / Configuration
Page 32
Chapter 6: Reports
This section is used to enable Console.NET user(s) and configure their options as
well as set some security options for specific extensions. Extension numbers & names
are initially imported as they are programmed on the telephone system(s). Names can
be changed within Console.NET but will have no bearing on the names as displayed
on the telephones themselves. If you do not want to see all extensions in
Console.NET, Do NOT delete them from here. If only specific extensions are to be
viewed, set them in a group as described later in this section.
NOTE: (Norstar Systems only)
It is important that a Directory Number discovery is initially performed using PBX
wizard. Extensions added to the phone system at a later date must be manually
updated in Directory Number configuration or a discovery must be re-performed
using the PBX wizard from the server. Dealer Note: For manual entries, please be
sure that all Voice Mail B2 channels (extensions) are entered
Creating Users
Console.NET users can be created using the PBX wizard or manually within
Console.NET "Directory Number Configuration". For manual configuration simply
assign a password to the extension(s) you wish to designate as the Console.NET user.

stored in this field, Console.NET will display and sort the extension using the last
name then first name order
Note:
•
If you want to display names by order of first name but you also want the
last name or initial displayed, enter the first and last name in the First
Name field
•
Unlike the seven character limit of the telephone system, Console.NET
allows up to 14 characters combining first & last name including spaces.
Page 34
Chapter 6: Reports
•
Long names will use more space in the main window and may introduce a
scroll bar. For optimal display usage, try to keep the total characters for
First & Last name to ten characters or less
Company Name
• Company name can be entered for the extension. This field is not displayed or
utilized by a Console.NET user
Extension
• This is a mandatory field displaying the extension number of the system
Voice Mail Box
• This field is for the mailbox associated to the telephone extension. If the entry is
not used or invalid, transfer to Voice Mail will not for that particular extension
Email
• email address of the user (not required, planned for future use)
Password
• A password must be created for every extension that intends on using
Console.NET. Licensing controls the number of concurrent users. The password
must be unique and is a case sensitive. The minimum number of characters in a
valid password is 1. Any DN that does not have a password will automatically be
disabled from logging into Console.NET.
Lines to Monitor
• By default Console.NET will display all calls that appear and/or ring (both
intercom & external) at this specific extension, which is based upon the
configuration of the user’s telephone. If there are specific lines which do not
appear and/or ring on the specific user’s phone, you can force a line(s) to appear
in the Active Call window of Console.NET allowing the Attendant to see activity
on those lines
User Type
• This setting only applies to Console.NET users that have a password assigned.
When a user logs in to use Console.NET they will have limited configuration
access by default (Attendant). By selecting the Administrator radio button, the
selected user will have full access to configuration. The following defines access
rights;
Attendant
ƒ
ƒ
ƒ
Companies and Contacts
Messages
Groups
Administrator
Page 35
Console.NET Installation & User Guide
ƒ
Provides the user with full access to all configuration menus. The
rights are the same as logging into Console.NET as the
Administrator using ext 0 and the passwaord 12345
Line Pools
• Select the appropriate analog or digital line pool to enable the attendant to dial
external calls. The Norstar or BCM phone must be programmed to have access
to the selected line pool
Security
• Security options can be set for any extension that requires specific privacy
settings. Typically these options would be used for the company management
and/or executive employee’s that wish to have greater privacy. Selections
include;
o Hide Dialing Number; when selected, no other Console.NET users can
see what number this specific DN is dialing
o Hide Incoming Number; when selected, no other Console.NET users can
see incoming caller ID name, DID or DNIS information for this specific DN
o Hide Target Line name; when selected, the target line name will not be
displayed on the Console.NET interface for this specific DN
Note: Additional services from your local phone company may be
required to provide Caller ID, DID or DNIS services
Feature Button Settings
• Select any of the listed features that the specific Console.NET user would like to
have access to on the Console.NET button bar in the main user window. Ten
buttons may be displayed at one time. Selecting one of the three button tabs will
display all selected buttons. The following feature buttons are displayed by
default: Hold, Call Queuing, Park, Park/Page
Note: Dial and Rls buttons cannot be removed from the user interface
Page Settings
• The Default Page button is configured based on a combination of both Page
options and Speaker options and can be configured differently for each user. For
example, if a user only pages the warehouse through the external paging port,
you can configure the Page button to be external page only. Default settings will
page all zones for internal telephone speakers.
Database Integration
• This is a very powerful feature, particularly for Business or Executive Centers.
Console.NET comes with a built-in Customer/Contact database allowing you to
display information pertaining to your customer prior to and/or after answering a
call. Both Screen Pop and Call Preview features can be used independently or
together to provide the Console.NET Attendant the most informed and prepared
call handling capabilities
Page 36
Chapter 6: Reports
Database screen pop with quick transfer phone links
o
Screen Pop; when selected and after a call is answered, a separate
window will pop on top of Console.NET displaying Customer details
including the notes field. Phone numbers from the customer database
appear as links to provide single click external call transfers. (see
Chapter 7 - Using Console.NET for more information on how to transfer a
call to an external number)
Note: The popup window does not close automatically. If popup is
selected, a new popup window will open each time a call is picked up
whether from the initial ring or from a hold or park state. Each window
must be closed manually
Inbound ringing call with "Call Preview" enabled
Page 37
Console.NET Installation & User Guide
o
Call Preview; when enabled, prior to a call being answered, caller
information is displayed including; the Customer/Company name,
Contact, company phone numbers and the first 80 characters of the notes
field. For example, in a Business Center environment, you could have
the company the caller is calling along with a script of how to greet the
caller. For general business, Call Preview can assist an Attendant by
displaying the Customer/Company name along with the sales rep’s they
usually deal with.
NOTE: Any changes made to a logged in user will not take affect until
they exit and log back in or after refreshing Console.NET by pressing
(F5) from the keyboard
Pop-up Method
• Pop-up method is used in conjunction with Call Preview and Database Screen
pop’s. The specific call information used to perform a search are;
o By Calling Number; this method will use the Caller ID number
information to search the customer database
o By DNIS; this method will use the number the person dialed to search the
customer database
o By DID; this method will use the Direct Inward Dialed number the person
dialed to search the customer database
o By Line Number; used in conjunction with analog lines, this search
method links the physical Norstar or BCM line to a database record. This
is used primarily in a Business Center environment.

ring. Right click on the on the Extension Button and click on Voice Call. To
terminate the Voice Call, click on Rls
NOTE: Phone system programming can prevent Voice Call from working at a

particular extension, that extension will ring
Camp-On
• While on a call, right click on the extension button and select Camp-on. The
extension that the call is Camped to will hear intermittent audio beeps coming
from the Nortel phone and the phone display will briefly display the Camped Call.
Call Waiting (via Camp On)
• Call Waiting is an exclusive feature found only in Console.NET. It is similar to
the "Camp on" feature, however functionality has been added to allow for the
recipient to interact with the call that is waiting for them.
• To activate "Call Waiting", a message must be present in the Console.NET
message field when the "Camp On" option is selected from the right click options.
The message will scroll across the display of the recipient’s telephone and a
beep is sounded through the speaker. The following options are available to the
recipient using soft keys on a two line display phone, or using digits on a single
line display phone;
o Answr- Will retrieve the call waiting and place any current call on hold.
There must be at least two intercom keys available. If the telephone has
only one intercom available, the set will display "Need 1 intercom" and the
answer will not take place. In This case, the current call must be parked
or disconnected to get the call waiting
o VMail- Sends the Call Waiting directly to the recipients Voice Mailbox if
activated
o Join- This option is only available if there is an active call at the telephone
that the call is waiting. Join will conference the "Call Waiting" to the
current active call. For Norstar systems, the Join is available for all calls
waiting but will only work if a call is active
NOTE: If no options are selected at the recipients telephone, the Call waiting
will timeout and return to the Console.NET attendant. The call Ringback will
identify the ringing call with the Ringback Message as entered in Global
Page 61
Console.NET Installation & User Guide
Options Configuration. By default the Ringback would look as follows: "Call
waiting Unanswered, Ron 242".
Using Console.NET Messaging
Console.NET provides three messaging schemes to enhance communication within an
office. All messages are initiated through the Messaging Window in Console.NET. The
Message Configuration allows a Console.NET Administrator to predefine messages so
that they may be quickly accessed. The three types of messaging are;
Text Messaging
Text Messaging allows the Attendant to send a scrolling message to the display of a
phone. This type of messaging is particularly useful if the receiver of the message is on
a call since the phone audibly beeps as the message is displayed. Messages will
automatically time out after a period of 5 minutes.
•
To send a Text Message, click into the Text Messaging window and either type
your own message or use the pull-down list to select one from the pre-defined
list. Right click on the extension button you want to send a message to and click
on Text Message. The message will be sent immediately. New messages will
override any previous messages.
To clear a message from the telephone
•
•
The user selects the Clear option on the phone soft key
Re-send a message containing a spacebar entry only and the previous message
will be cleared
NOTE:
•
•
•
Page 62
Messages containing 15 characters or less will display a constant
message. Messages over 15 characters will scroll across the display
from right to left.
A text message sent to a user checking their voice mail will interrupt the
session
Text messages sent to a telephone will override the display of any
previous information on the telephone display
Chapter 8: Appendices
Sticky Messages
A Console.NET user can attach a message to a call to assist in identifying calls that are
placed on Hold or Parked. For example, if a caller has to be placed on Hold, a
message can be attached to the call which helps identify who the caller is waiting for.
The sticky note remains attached to the call until the all is terminated.
•
While on a call type the appropriate message and click on the Yellow Envelope in
the upper right corner of the message window. The Sticky Message is now
applied to the call and will show when the call is on Hold or Parked in the active
call window.
A Parked Call with a Sticky Message "Sales Inquiry" attached
Message Notification
Message Notification allows a Console.NET Attendant to add a message on the
extension button of a particular user. Along with a message, the colour of the
extension button changes to light blue helping to quickly identify an extension with a
notification message set.
•
•
•
•
To set a Notification message for a particular extension, click into the Text
Messaging field and either type your own message or use the pull-down list to
select one from the list
Right click on the extension button you want to set a message for
Click on Msg Notification
If Details is enabled, the message will appear on the extension button and the
button will turn light blue. If Details is not enabled, hover your mouse over a blue
extension button to see the Notification message
NOTE: Messages applied by the Console.NET user will be retained on
subsequent logins. Each new message will override any previous message
Telephone Messaging
• Telephone Messaging is an optional feature purchase. By entering an assigned
Feature Code from any telephone, one of 99 messages can be selected
representing the status of the employee. For example, if a message indicating "In
a Meeting" was selected, that message would be displayed as a notification for
the appropriate extension in Console.NET. In addition, the message is also
displayed for any telephone on the same system calling the set with the active
Page 63
Console.NET Installation & User Guide
message. The Feature code is assigned in Console.NET Server Configuration.
The messages are set in Config/ Server/ Message Notifications.
NOTE: Programming the feature code to a telephone button beside an LCD
display offers a convenient and quick method to enable and disable
messages. The associated LCD indicator will blink as a reminder that a
message is active. While active, pressing the feature button will display the
current message and allow cancellation or changing of the message
Since only one message can be displayed at a time for an extension in Console.NET,
new messages will override previous messages. For example, If a Console user has a
message applied to a particular extension indicating they are on lunch and the person
at that telephone applies a new Telephone message, the new message will replace
the one that the Console user had set.
