GENERAL DESCRIPTION 1.1
GENERAL DESCRIPTION
IVX®, an integrated voice exchange, is an advanced small
business telephone system with built-in voice processing,
automated attendant and voice-mail capability. The system’s combined functions are controlled by a single processor and by a single set of proprietary operating system software. Its combined features/functions include:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
A 16 x 34 Digital Telephone System
10 Ports of Voice Mail
Full Automated Attendant
Automatic Call Distribution (ACD)
Message on Hold
Caller ID
Call Traffic and Activity Reports
BACKGROUND
Virtually all other
telephone/voice mail systems
involve connecting two or
more separate systems (usually from different manufacturers). Call processing by these
different “boxes” must transfer
callers back and forth from
system to system, with each
performing its operation only
during the time that it is connected to the caller.
IVX IS DIFFERENT
IVX is a single system that performs ALL of these functions as one– by a single processor, storage medium and
voice processing DSP. With no boundaries between these
once separate tasks, IVX delivers the greatest possible efficiency and cost effectiveness.
1.2 GENERAL DESCRIPTION
IVX
SYSTEM CABINET
The compact, wall-mounted cabinet houses the processor,
memory, and station interfaces. It is powered by a small
external wall-mount transformer. The base unit is capable
of supporting up to eight CO Lines, 16 Feature Phones,
and two Analog Ports. A piggy-back expansion cabinet
for an additional 8 x 16 configuration is easily added
without increasing the system’s “footprint”.
FEATURE PHONES
The proprietary feature phones provide advanced call
handling features, an LCD Display, and built-in speaker
phone capability.
IVX ADVANCED FEATURES
TOTAL INTEGRATION
IVX provides seamless operation and call processing – no
hookflash or call progress monitoring required, resulting in
the fastest call processing available.
SIMPLIFIED SET-UP
Installing separate systems require that different programming techniques and data be interfaced creating potential
problem isolation issues. IVX’s combined functions
require NO interface. IVX’s programming incorporates
interactive voice and LCD display prompts that virtually
eliminate ambiguity and guesswork for the installer,
administrator or user.
VERBAL USER GUIDETM
The combination of voice prompts and LCD Display interaction guides users through station and voice mail feature
programming and operation.
VERBAL HELP KEYTM
The HELP Key provides interactive voice and LCD explanations of user programming requirements and all commonly used phone features – virtually eliminating the
need to consult the printed user guide.
IVX
GENERAL DESCRIPTION 1.3
VOICEMAIL KEY
A unique fixed key that provides for one-stroke immediate interface to the user’s voice mail features. Direct
access to a voice mail box is accomplished by pressing the
VOICEMAIL Key from an idle station. Transferring an
outside caller directly to a user’s mailbox is as simple as
pressing the VOICEMAIL Key followed by the appropriate station key.
LIVE RECORDING
During any conversation, a user can press the REC Key
and record the conversation for later retrieval. Users can
record personal reminders simply by lifting the handset
and pressing the REC key on the phone -- and any recording can be further handled the same as any other regular
message.
QUICK GROUPSTM
A user can leave a message in several user’s mailboxes
without having to create and manage the traditional
group mailboxes. Simply press the VOICEMAIL Key,
press the desired Station Keys (up to 16) to receive this
message and record the message.
LIVE CALL SCREENING (MESSAGE MONITOR)
Allows a user to handle incoming calls in the same way as
a home answering machine. If the user activates Monitor
Mode, a call presented to the station will ring at the station
(including during the personal greeting being played to
the outside caller). When the caller begins leaving a message, his or her voice is also output to the user’s speaker,
giving the user the option of intercepting the call by simply lifting the handset or allowing the message to be completed to the user’s mailbox.
MESSAGE-ON-HOLD (MOH)
MOH allows for traditional announcement / music to be
continuously played to callers while on hold. Three
generic messages-on-hold are permanently stored on disk
– or, up to five custom recordings can easily be downloaded for use.
1.4 GENERAL DESCRIPTION
IVX
ON-HOLD DIALING
Because the MOH source is being generated by the system, DTMF receivers are able to continuously monitor the
line – allowing callers on hold or in ACD queue to dial
other options such as menu selections or the operator.
PERSONAL GREETING REMINDER
Users typically activate this feature to automatically play
their personal greeting the first time the phone is used
after extended absence – ensuring removal of outdated
greetings. They do have the option to keep as is, or to
change it.
REMOTE SYSTEM SOFTWARE UPDATING
System updates are accomplished via a high-speed, builtin Modem. System software or built-in voice prompts can
be factory updated via dial-up rather than by costly and
time-consuming EPROM replacement. Dealers can also
use the Modem port for remote real-time monitoring of
system activity, debug, or update of configuration data.
GUEST EXTENSIONS
Employees that work outside of the office can be assigned
Guest Extensions making it appear as if they have a live
station in the office. Example: the normal extensions are
numbered 100 to 115. Three outside sales reps are
assigned Guest Extensions 301, 302, and 303. An outside
caller dialing 301 at the main greeting would be forwarded directly to mailbox 301. Additionally, an inside user
can transfer a caller directly to 301's mailbox by pressing a
station key programmed for “extension” 301.
ACD CAPABILITY
Department Groups can be set up to provide sophisticated
Automatic Call Distribution (ACD) features. Calls are
presented to the longest Idle ACD agent or, if all agents
are busy, callers can be held in queue and presented as
agents become available. Possibilities include: Up to 10
agent groups with up to 16 agents in a group.
IVX
GENERAL DESCRIPTION 1.5
LCD DISPLAY
Display for users and idle agents indicates number of new
and old messages waiting in voice mail. During retrieval
of messages, the display shows the phone number (*if
Caller ID is active) associated with the message being
heard – plus a countdown display of the message duration. The display shows real time activity to ACD agents
indicating how many calls are holding and the length of
the longest holding call.
CALLER ID
With Caller ID service activated with the service provider,
the name and/or number of the calling party will be displayed on incoming calls and during call waiting.
Additionally, the Caller ID will be displayed with messages to facilitate automatic callback to the calling party.
Note: Some limitation based on the service provider and
the local dialing patterns may exist.
VISUAL PARK KEYS
These unique keys allow simplified “park & page” to
lighted park keys appearing on all stations. No need for
confusing park and retrieve codes. In addition, a dedicated hold key provides for exclusive hold.
911 ALERT
This feature provides immediate line access if any station
dials 911 to report an emergency. A message will be sent
via the serial port indicating the start date, time, station
number, and end-time of the 911. Additionally, a warning
tone will sound at the operator station and the LCD display will show “911 CALL FROM X102 JOHN JAMES".
1.6 GENERAL DESCRIPTION
IVX
STANDARD FEATURES
AUTO ATTENDANT
Auto Attendant is like having an extra staff member on
board -- or, it may allow freeing up an existing employee
for other duties. Efficient call handling is assured by up to
six menu levels, 40 audiotext branches, directory,
Day/Night/Holiday modes, and primary and secondary
answering capability.
However, selected stations (such as lobby phones, top
executives, etc.) can be blocked from receiving calls directly from the Auto Attendant.
AUTOMATIC MAILBOX CREATION
From the moment an IVX system is up-and-running, mailboxes are automatically created with generic greeting and
forwarding default values for all users -- there’s no waiting
for users to record personal greetings. However, at that
point, users are able to easily create their own custom
greetings.
CALL STATISTICS
IVX tracks call activity by Line, Extension, Department,
and System. Summary Reports that are easy to read and
interpret are easily printed by the System Administrator.
CALL FORWARD: BUSY/NO ANSWER AND ALL CALLS
The Installer can easily control Call Forward Busy/No
Answer for each station on the system -- in both Day and
Night Mode. In addition, individual user control their
own Call Forward All Calls.
CALL PICK-UP
Pressing the dedicated PICK-UP Key and a user’s Station
Key or dialed extension number allows a user to intercept
a ringing department or station -- minimizing caller
aggravation caused by unanswered ringing.
CALL TRANSFER (LIVE)
Both supervised and blind transfers are accomplished by
pressing the destination Station Key-- or by pressing the
TRANS Key and the destination extension number.
IVX
GENERAL DESCRIPTION 1.7
CALL WAITING
A second call (indicated by an audible tone and a display
indication) to an in-use station can be handled by the user
much the same as they do at home with call-waiting...simply press the FLASH Key to toggle between calls – or
hang-up and the other call will ring. Inside personnel can
manually alert someone on his phone that a call is waiting
or someone is waiting in the lobby, etc.
CLASS OF SERVICE
Service or features programmed for individual stations
can be custom programmed from two levels -- the Installer
level, or the Administrator level. The Installer level carries
the most authority and flexibility.
LINE GROUPS
Each outbound Line can be assigned to one of three
groups (9, 8, or 7). Icons on a user’s LCD display shows
how many lines exist, whether or not each line is in use,
and which line the user has accessed.
COMMON AUDIBLE
One of the system’s Analog Ports can be designated to
provide common audible (e.g. bell, chime, etc.) ringing to
provide simplified line pick-up from any station.
CONFERENCE / ADD-ON
Up to 12 parties can be in conferences at the same time–
up to four parties in a single conference. However, the
originating extension must remain in the conference.
DAY / NIGHT OPERATION
Day/Night Main Greeting and call processing can be easily programmed for automatic operation. Alternatively,
the operator can manually change between Day/Night/
Holiday/Automatic with the press of a key.
1.8 GENERAL DESCRIPTION
IVX
DELAYED RINGING
Delayed ringing options allow flexibility in how unanswered incoming calls are processed. For example, an
incoming call intended for a sales person or department
may be progressed to an administrator – and ultimately
to a chime for any available person to answer. The feature
can be programmed on a Line-by-Line basis to a live operator or for Auto Attendant answer as well as
day/night/answer, or clock/calendar control.
DO NOT DISTURB (DND)
This function can be allowed or denied on a station-bystation basis by the System Administrator. If allowed, a
user activates the feature with the single press of the DND
key while the phone is idle. The DND Key also controls
Wrap Time for ACD agents.
SOFT FEATURE KEYS
These sixteen lighted, programmable keys provide onetouch transfer to stations, mailboxes, or departments;
direct line keys; speed dial; or other feature access.
EXTERNAL PAGING INTERFACE
CO Line connection or one of two pre-assigned analog
ports also can be used for simplified connection to external overhead paging equipment.
FAX TRANSFER (AUTOMATIC)
If a FAX tone is detected upon answer by the Auto
Attendant, the call will automatically be transferred to the
analog port set as a FAX extension.
FLASH CONTROL
System programming of the flash duration provides for
flexible usage behind Central Office switches, Centrex, or
PBXs.
HANDS-FREE ANSWER
Station users also have the option to program their phone
for hands-free answer (voice announce) for station-to-station calls.
IVX
GENERAL DESCRIPTION 1.9
HOLD RECALL
This feature gives flexibility in the amount of time that
elapses between placing a call on Park or on Hold and
when that party is recalled.
LAST NUMBER REDIAL
If an attempt at an outside call is unsuccessful, (e.g., a busy
signal), simply press the single RDL Key for one or more
subsequent attempts.
LINE PICK-UP MODE
Pressing the PICK-UP Key and 0 to answer a ringing Line
or common audible bell.
LINE QUEUING
Should a call be attempted when all outside lines are busy
– users can elect to be called back and advised by voice
announcement as soon as a line becomes available.
LINE / INTERCOM OFF-HOOK ASSIGNMENT
User control of station off hook preference for access to
intercom or assigned Line Group dial tone.
DURATION DISPLAY
As a message is played, the LCD display shows its duration from the beginning of playback and counts down to
message completion.
MESSAGE WAITING INDICATION
The unit will automatically activate the phone’s message
light and provide a real time display on LCD of type and
number of messages.
MODEM (BUILT IN)
A built-in 14.4 kb Modem provides for system update and
real time programming and debug.

GUEST / INFO MAILBOXES
Mailboxes numbered from 300 to 499 can be either a Guest
or Info Mailbox. To create a new mailbox, input the mailbox number and select type: Guest or Info by pressing the
PARK 3 Key.
GUEST MAILBOXES
Guest Mailboxes are designed to be used by personnel,
such as outside sales or manufacturing personnel, who do
not have an extension assigned to them. A Guest Mailbox
requires no programming other than the name assigned.
Once created here, a personal greeting must be recorded
to turn the mailbox on.
Note: A Guest Mailbox can be handled like a regular
extension (i.e. listed in the directory, assigned a Soft
Feature Key, etc.).
A Guest Mailbox cannot have a message light. Messages
are retrieved by dialing * and the mailbox number at the
Main Greeting if calling from the outside; or after pressing
the Voicemail Key, *, and the mailbox number if calling
from a Feature Phone.
INFO MAILBOXES
Info Mailboxes can be used to give callers information on a
variety of different subjects by “publishing” these mailbox numbers for them to access. Info mailboxes are identical to Guest Mailboxes except that the caller will not be
given a record tone after the personal greeting (the information to be played). Instead, the caller will be call forwarded as programmed in this function (default is the
caller will be disconnected after the information is
played). The maximum length of the record time is 14
minutes.

GROUP MAILBOXES (INCLUDING BROADCAST)
GROUP MAILBOXES
Up to 16 Group Mailboxes (501 to 516) can be assigned.
These can be used by anyone who knows the password to
leave messages for all users listed as members of that
group. The Administrator or Group Mailbox “owner(s)”
may set, or change the list of Group Mailbox members.
A Group Mailbox is turned “on” (able to record and playback messages) only when a mailbox greeting has been
recorded by the user, such as “This is the Group Mailbox
for East Coast Regional Sales”, etc. Deleting the Group
Mailbox greeting will turn “off” the Group Mailbox. Any
outstanding messages will remain in its members' mailboxes until erased by each member.
To enter Group Mailbox 510 as a user, dial 510 and enter
the password. This will allow the Group Mailbox owner or
anyone with the password to record a group message.
Press the VOICEMAIL Key, *, 510 to hear/delete any group
messages that remain in the mailbox. Press the PROGRAM/HELP Key, *, 510 to program the Group Mailbox.
Note: If “0” is programmed as the password, anyone can
leave group messages or program the Group Mailbox.
BROADCAST MAILBOX
Mailbox 500 is a special Group Mailbox which can be used
to leave messages for users who have their mailboxes
turned on (who have recorded a personal greeting). The
Broadcast Mailbox cannot have its user list edited. Guest
Mailboxes are not included in the Broadcast group.

and number of times each is to be paged before the next
paging number is added are programmed in this function.
Up to three paging numbers of up to 24 digits each can be
programmed by the user to be paged whenever a new
message is taken in the mailbox. The system will page the
first paging number (for the number of times listed) and
then add the second paging number (for the number of
times listed) and then add the third paging number and
will continue to page all three pagers until the message
has been retrieved. The period of minutes between pages

RE-RECORD SYSTEM PROMPTS
The following system prompts are to be played to an outside caller at different points in the call routing or mailbox
functions. These system prompts have been pre-recorded
at the factory but may be re-recorded if preferred in a different voice or with different instructions. The Auto
Attendant branch prompts (such as the Main Greeting or

menu selection or input an extension number. Default is:
"One moment please".
Q / Z PROMPT
534
The Q/Z Prompt may be played to the caller when he has
selected an Alphabetic Directory. The caller is instructed
to use the number 1 key for the letters Q or Z since these

use the key number 1".
NO NAMES MATCHED PROMPT 535
This prompt is played to the caller if, in a directory
branch, the first letter he selected does not have any
names associated with it; or he has listened to all of the
names played and has not made a selection. After this
prompt is played, the system will forward the call to the
Extension, Branch or Mailbox as programmed in call forward no response. Default is: "No names matched, one
moment please.”

press 0 or to leave a message begin recording at the tone. Press
1 when finished".
END OF RECORDING PROMPT 537

MESSAGE ON HOLD PROGRAMMING
MOH can be either live music (with an external music
source connected to the MOH input connecter), or prerecorded music/messages can be stored on the disk and
played continuously to a caller on hold. Three generic
MOHs are stored as Prompt 591, 592 and 593. Prompt 591
is three minutes of uninterrupted music (for use with
ACD if desired), Prompt 592 has periodic prompts to
“Please continue to hold”, while 593 has periodic prompts to
continue to hold or to dial 0 for the operator or dial an
extension number if known. Five custom MOHs can be
recorded via the MOH connector as prompts 594-598.
Note: These will be played as a loop since callers may be
connected to MOH at different times during its continuous playback.
