get an outside line). In this case you would enter 9,,,0910028190. You may need to experiment
with the number of commas to enter. This is related to the time it takes the PBX to provide a dial
tone after pressing the outside line digit (i.e. 9).
12. Telephone Answering Machine
The VoIP Gateway Software includes a telephone answering machine (TAM) and can be configured to answer
incoming VoIP and PSTN calls. The answering machine can be accessed and configured from the local
telephone handset connected to the VoIP Telephone Adapter as well as remotely by calling into the PSTN
line connected to this VoIP Telephone Adapter. The access is enabled via the VoIP Telephone Adapter
Interactive Voice Response (IVR) system.
The VoIP Telephone Adapter TAM can be used in conjunction with or independent of any VoIP voicemail
service you may be subscribed to. When you access the VoIP Telephone Adapter TAM, you will be able to
access the VoIP service voicemail, if subscribed, as well as the VoIP Telephone Adapter voice messages.

13. Interactive Voice Response – IVR
The IVR system provides access to the VoIP Telephone Adapter TAM for managing recorded messages as well
as configuring the TAM. In addition, the IVR provides access to Toll Bypass (explained in the Toll Bypass
section) and the VoIP service provider Voicemail.
The IVR system can be accessed from the local telephone handset connected to VoIP Telephone Adapter as
well as via calling in remotely (explained in the Remote Administrative Access section). Not all features are
supported in all modes (i.e. local access versus remote access). Diagram below show the detailed flow chart
of the IVR system.
Note:
Don’t simply release your “Pin Code” to anybody. Please keep on changing your “Pin Code”
from time to time for security purpose.
14. Local IVR Access
The IVR is accessed locally by picking up the VoIP Telephone Adapter connected telephone handset, going
off-hook and switching to VoIP dialtone. (if you have pending VoIP service or VoIP Telephone Adapter TAM
voice messages, the VoIP dialtone will have a stutter dial) and pressing the “*” key. At this point the IVR
system will provide all the necessary voice queues for the following:
„
Listen to locally VoIP Telephone Adapter TAM recorded voice mails
„
Delete locally VoIP Telephone Adapter TAM recorded voice mails
„
Access the VoIP service provider voice mail system
„
Configure the VoIP Telephone Adapter TAM (record new outgoing message, restore the factory default
outgoing message, …)
You can press DTMF digits while the menu is being played if you are familiar with the menu options and flow.
There is no need to wait until then end of each voice queue. The same applies for voice messages browsing –
you may repeat the voice message (“1”), delete the voice message (“2”) or skip to next voice message
(“3”), while the voice message is being played. Each menu will be played up to 3 times (5 sec silence
between repetitions), if no user action taken within this time the call would disconnect with goodbye
message.

administrative mode option must be set for the network (Internet and/or PSTN) you would like to call in.
Once enable, you can call in to your PSTN line or your VoIP account to remotely access VoIP Telephone
Adapter. When you call in, you will hear the outgoing message or the call forward message. During the
message, you should press the “*” key followed by the pin code and “*” key again. You have 3 trials to enter
the pin code before the call is disconnected.
Once authenticated you can do the following by listening to and responding to the IVR voice prompts:
„
Make a toll bypass call (explained in the Toll Bypass section)
„
Listen to and/or delete VoIP Telephone Adapter TAM recorded voice messages
„
Change the outgoing message
„
Access the VoIP service voicemail (when calling from PSTN)
Note that your pin code can be between 4 and 8 digits. For security purpose, it is recommended that you
change your Pin Code fro time to time.
16. Toll Bypass
Once authenticated (as explained in the Remote IVR Access section), you can make a call on the other
network. This is referred to as toll bypass. For example, you can call in on the VoIP network and make a
PSTN call or you can call in on the PSTN line and make a VoIP call.
In order to make a call, simply enter the desired number or speed dial number followed by the ‘*’ key and
you call will be placed. If you call in via PSTN and make a VoIP Toll Bypass call, you can terminate the call by
pressing ‘##” (for quick termination) or simply hang up. If you call in via the VoIP network and make a PSTN
Toll Bypass call, you can terminate the call by ending the VoIP session.
