Every effort was made to ensure that the information in this book was complete and
accurate at the time of printing. However, information is subject to change.
Preventing Toll Fraud
“Toll fraud” is the unauthorized use of your telecommunications system by an
unauthorized party (for example, a person who is not a corporate employee, agent,
subcontractor, or working on your company's behalf). Be aware that there may be a risk of
toll fraud associated with your system and that, if toll fraud occurs, it can result in
substantial additional charges for your telecommunications services.
Avaya Fraud Intervention:
If you suspect that you are being victimized by toll fraud and you need technical assistance
or support, call the Technical Service Center's Toll Fraud Intervention Hotline at 1-800643-2353.
Providing Telecommunications Security
Telecommunications security (of voice, data, and/or video communications) is the
prevention of any type of intrusion to (that is, either unauthorized or malicious access to or
use of your company's telecommunications equipment) by some party.
Your company's “telecommunications equipment” includes both this Avaya product and
any other voice/data/video equipment that could be accessed via this Avaya product (that
is, “networked equipment”).
An “outside party” is anyone who is not a corporate employee, agent, subcontractor, or
working on your company's behalf. Whereas, a “malicious party” is anyone (including
someone who may be otherwise authorized) who accesses your telecommunications
equipment with either malicious or mischievous intent.
Such intrusions may be either to/through synchronous (time-multiplexed and/or circuitbased) or asynchronous (character-, message-, or packet-based) equipment or interfaces for
reasons of:
• Utilization (of capabilities special to the accessed equipment)
• Theft (such as, of intellectual property, financial assets, or toll-facility access)
• Eavesdropping (privacy invasions to humans)
• Mischief (troubling, but apparently innocuous, tampering)
• Harm (such as harmful tampering, data loss or alteration, regardless of motive or
intent)
Be aware that there may be a risk of unauthorized intrusions associated with your system
and/or its networked equipment. Also realize that, if such an intrusion should occur, it
could result in a variety of losses to your company (including but not limited to, human/
data privacy, intellectual property, material assets, financial resources, labor costs, and/or
legal costs).
Your Responsibility for Your Company’s Telecommunications Security
The final responsibility for securing both this system and its networked equipment rests
with you - an Avaya customer's system administrator, your telecommunications peers, and
your managers. Base the fulfillment of your responsibility on acquired knowledge and
resources from a variety of sources including but not limited to:
• Installation documents
• System administration documents
• Security documents
• Hardware-/software-based security tools
• Shared information between you and your peers
• Telecommunications security experts
To prevent intrusions to your telecommunications equipment, you and your peers should
carefully program and configure your:
• Avaya-provided telecommunications systems and their interfaces
• Avaya-provided software applications, as well as their underlying hardware/software platforms and interfaces
• Any other equipment networked to your Avaya products.
Federal Communications Commission Statement
Part 15: Class A Statement. The 302A, 302B, 302C, and 302D consoles have been tested
and found to comply with the limits for a Class A digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the
FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful
interference when the equipment is operated in a commercial environment. This equipment
generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in
accordance with the instruction manual, may cause harmful interference to radio
communications. Operation of this equipment in a residential area is likely to cause
harmful interference, in which case the user will be required to correct the interference at
his own expense.
Part 15: Class B Statement. The 302D console has been tested and found to comply with
the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits
are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential
installation. This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio-frequency energy and, if
not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference
to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in
a particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or
television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user
is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:
• Reorient the receiving television or radio antenna where this may be done safely.
• To the extent possible, relocate the receiver with respect to the telephone equipment.
• Where the telephone equipment requires ac power, plug the telephone into a different ac outlet so that the telephone equipment and receiver are on different branch
circuits.
Part 68: Network Registration Number. This equipment is registered with the FCC in
accordance with Part 68 of the FCC Rules. It is identified by FCC registration number
AV1USA-43023-MF-E.
Part 68: Answer-Supervision Signaling. Allowing this equipment to be operated in a
manner that does not provide proper answer-supervision signaling is in violation of Part 68
rules. This equipment returns answer-supervision signals to the public switched network
when:
• Answered by the called station
• Answered by the attendant
• Routed to a recorded announcement that can be administered by the CPE user
This equipment returns answer-supervision signals on all DID calls forwarded back to the
public switched telephone network. Permissible exceptions are:
• A call is unanswered
• A busy tone is received
• A reorder tone is received

About this document
This document contains basic telephony procedures for using a 302-series
attendant console on a DEFINITY® Enterprise Communications Server (ECS) or
an Avaya IP600 Internet Protocol Communications Server. These procedures are
done by the attendants or front desk personnel.
All office staff personnel that operate the attendant console or do console
operations at a backup telephone should be familiar with these procedures. If you
need extra copies of this document, contact your Avaya representative or order
more copies as described on the inside cover of this document.
Assumptions
It is assumed throughout this document that the user is familiar with the basic
operation of telephones and attendant consoles. If users have access to a
multimedia personal computer, there is training available on CD-ROM for basic
console and telephone operations.

Conventions
The following conventions are used in this document:
■
Buttons you press on the console are shown as follows:
RELEASE
button
The buttons shown in this document use label designations provided with
the console. Since the button labels can be customized for each site, some
button labeling may have different designations.
Some button labels on the console, such as Serial Call, span two lines.
Because of line spacing in this document, they are shown across one line of
text, such as SERIAL CALL.
■
The term “dial keypad” refers to the touch-tone keypad where you dial
(enter) telephone numbers and feature access codes.
■
When referring to lamps, the reference is to one of two types of lamps
found on the attendant console: the status lamps next to the dial keypad and
the lamps associated with feature and trunk buttons. The status lamps next
to the dial keypad have fixed meanings. Those lamps are shown as follows:
Position Available
Lamps associated with feature and trunk buttons are identified by their
button label (such as NORMAL MODE).
■
Messages appearing on the display are shown as follows:
a=
CONFERENCE 2
rc
When the display examples show a value within “arrows” (< >), this
represents a variable that will differ for each example.
■
The term “attendant console” signifies the Model 302 or PC console that
usually is found at the front desk. The term “backup telephone” signifies
either a Model 6408, 6424, 8410D or 8434 telephone with attendant-type
feature buttons. Other multiappearance telephones can be used, but the
preferred models are the 6408, 6424, 8410D or 8434.
■
When a procedure refers to a “extension,” the procedure is referring to the
extension number of a user or guest. A guest’s room number and extension
are not always the same.
■
You will hear the following tones during normal operation:
— Dial tone — a steady tone you hear when you select an idle call
appearance.
— Ringback tone — the normal ringing tone you hear after you dial an
extension or outside number.

Console operations
■
DXS/BLF buttons — These are known as the direct extension select/busy
lamp field (DXS/BLF) buttons. They are used with the hundreds group
select buttons to place calls to extensions and to determine the status of
extensions.
— If the lamp is dark, the extension is idle.
— If the lamp is lighted, the extension is in use.
— If a station has the Send All Calls feature active and is busy, the
lamp remains steady until the station is no longer busy. At that time,
the lamp goes to a flashing mode.
■
DXS hundreds group select buttons — These buttons on the DXS selector
console are assigned the first digit or the first two digits of each group
of 100 extensions. For example, if you have extensions numbered
from 7000 to 7099, there will be a button labeled 70.
Status lamps
The buttons on the console have status lamps associated with their use. These
status lamps come on, go off, or flash as you use the console features. When the
lamps come on, the feature is active. When the lamps go off, the feature is
inactive. When the lamps flash 3 times, you cannot access the feature at this time.
There are also some status lamps not directly associated with buttons, and they are
located next to the dial keypad.

console’s individual extension number and the call is in queue to be
answered.
■
Alarm — This lamp lights when the switch has detected a failure. Follow
local procedures if this lamp is lit.
■
Alarm Reported — This lamp lights when an alarm prompts the switch to
dial up the remote maintenance center, report the alarm, and the
maintenance center acknowledges the alarm. For some installations, this
remote alarm reporting is not available.
■
Position Available — This lamp lights when the console is available to
handle a call.

Feature operation
This section contains user operation for features used from an attendant console or
from a backup telephone.
Attendant Backup
The Attendant Backup feature allows you to access most attendant console
features from one or more specially-administered multiappearance telephones.
When calls terminate at the attendant console during normal operation, users at
the backup telephones can answer overflow calls by pressing a button or dialing a
feature access code. You can then process the calls as if you are at the attendant
console. Procedures for basic feature operation are documented in the quick
reference guides for each telephone.
NOTE:
The Attendant Backup features cannot be used from extensions
administered as “client” extensions even if they have a multiappearance
telephone.
When the attendant console is in day mode (the Night lamp is off), you cannot
answer overflow calls at the backup telephones until the number of calls waiting
in the attendant queue has reached an administered threshold. Until the threshold
is reached, the only indication the backup telephones receive about calls waiting
in queue is when the Queue Calls and the Queue Time lamps go on. You can press
the QUEUE TIME button to see how long the call has been waiting, but you cannot
answer the call. The Queue Time lamp starts flashing when the time in queue
warning level has been reached (this is usually set for 15 seconds). When the calls
waiting in queue threshold has been reached, the backup telephones will beep
every 10 seconds as long as the number of calls waiting stays above the threshold.
You then can answer calls using the Trunk Answer Any Station (TAAS) feature
access code _____ or an automatic dialing button administered with that feature
access code.
When the attendant console is in night mode (the Night lamp is on), all calls to the
attendant console immediately beep at the backup telephones and the Queue Calls
and the Queue Time lamps go on. You then can answer calls using the TAAS
feature access code _____ or an automatic dialing button administered with that
feature access code.

DEFINITY ECS Console Operations Quick Reference
Feature operation
The following is a typical scenario for answering overflow attendant console calls
from a backup telephone:
1. The Calls Waiting In Queue threshold is reached.
■
The backup telephones beep and will beep every 10 seconds until
the calls in queue go below the threshold or you shut the ringer off
by pressing the RINGER CUTOFF button.
■
The Queue Calls lamp starts flashing.
■
If calls remain in the queue for 15 seconds, the Queue Time lamp
starts flashing.
2. Press either the QUEUE CALLS or QUEUE TIME button.
■
The display shows how long the calls have been waiting in queue
and how may calls are in queue:
OPERATOR
Qtime 00:24
calls:5
3. To answer the first call in queue, dial the Trunk Answer Any Station
feature access code _____ or press the automatic dialing button
administered with that feature access code.
4. When finished with the call, hang up.
In addition to answering overflow calls, you can use the backup telephones in a
hospitality environment to handle guest requests such as wakeup calls. To do this,
the following feature buttons must be administered on the backup telephone(s):
■
Automatic Wakeup
■
Check-In
■
Check-Out
■
Do Not Disturb Extension
■
Night Service (a NIGHT button can be assigned on only one backup
telephone)
■

Busy Verification
The Busy Verification feature allows attendants and backup telephone users to
make test calls to see if a trunk is actually busy or out of service.
To use the Busy Verification feature:
1. At the attendant console or a backup telephone, press the BUSY VERIFY
button.
2. Dial the trunk access code followed by a specific trunk number (such
as 01, 02, and so on). One of the following occurs:
■
If the trunk is busy with an active call, you are bridged onto the
active call. All parties on the active call receive a warning tone
(2-second burst of 440 Hz tone) to let them know that you are
bridging onto the call. A half-second burst of warning tone repeats
every 15 seconds, as long as you remain on the call.
■
If the trunk is out of service, the busy verification is denied. You will
hear reorder tone.
■
If the trunk is idle and it is an outgoing trunk, you will hear dial
tone. You can make a call on that trunk to verify that it is in working
order. If the trunk is an incoming trunk, you hear a confirmation
tone which indicates that the trunk is available for use.
3. Press the RELEASE button to end the call from the attendant console, or go
on-hook from a backup telephone.

Call Forwarding
There are two Call Forwarding features you can activate and cancel for any
extension: Call Forwarding - All Calls, and Call Forwarding - Busy/Don’t
Answer. Call Forwarding - All Calls causes calls to an extension to be forwarded
immediately to a different telephone number. Call Forwarding - Busy/Don’t
Answer causes calls to an extension to be forwarded to a different telephone
number only if no one answers or if the line is busy. This feature is used when the
user will be away from their telephone and wants the calls redirected.
! SECURITY ALERT:
Call Forwarding - All Calls, and Call Forwarding - Busy/Don’t Answer are
not recommended for use to extend calls to “off-premises” sites due to the
potential for toll fraud. Reliable call disconnect from your local service
provider's central switching office may not always be possible, thus,
allowing dial tone to be returned to the caller and toll fraud to occur.

Loudspeaker Paging
The Loudspeaker Paging feature allows you to access loudspeaker paging
equipment. Nine paging zones and a paging zone to activate all paging zones at
the same time can be provided. Attendants can page individuals by pressing
PAGE 1 through PAGE 9 or PAGE ALL, if provided, or by dialing an access code (the
trunk access code that is administered for the equipment installed for each paging
zone). An allowable paging time limit is administered on the system. If the
administered time limit expires while an announcement is being made, the call is
disconnected and intercept tone is heard.
You can combine Loudspeaker Paging with the Call Park feature (refer to ‘‘Call
Park’’ on page 27) to connect a caller with a paged party. The paged party can
retrieve the call by dialing the Answer Back feature access code and the parked
extension.

! SECURITY ALERT:
Social Engineering — “Social Engineering” is a con game that hackers
frequently use. It is sometimes referred to as “Operator Deceit.” The success
of this con requires gullibility or laxity on the part of the operator or
employee, of which the hacker takes full advantage. For example, hackers
call an employee, claim to have the wrong extension number, and ask to be
transferred back to the operator. To the operator, the call appears to be an
internal call. The hacker then asks for an outside line. Often, because
operators are not trained about toll fraud, they will connect the hacker to an
outside line. Another example of social engineering is when a hacker calls
the operator and pretends to be a telephone maintenance repair person.
They make statements such as: “This is Avaya testing your lines. Please
transfer me to 900 or 9#,” or “I need to verify your DID number range.” An
untrained operator may provide the requested transfer or information,
giving the hacker more ammunition with which to crack your system.
You can transfer calls to an extension or to an outside number. Some of the
reasons to transfer a call include the following:
■
A person on an incoming call wants to be connected to a user on the
system.
■
A user calling the attendant wants to be connected to another user, but they
does not know the extension.
■
A user wants to be connected to an outside number.
■
A person on an incoming call wants to be connected to an outside number,
on another trunk.

Trunk Identification
The Trunk Identification feature allows you to use the attendant console or a
backup telephone to identify a specific trunk being used on any trunk call,
incoming or outgoing. This can help you find faulty or noisy trunks so you can
report them to your local telephone company, thus providing better service to your
users.
To use the Trunk Identification feature from the attendant console or from a
backup telephone:
1. While on a trunk call where you are experiencing a bad connection, press
the TRUNK ID button.
■
The display shows a number sequence. The first number is the trunk
access code, and the second number is the trunk identification
number. Write down the trunk information.
2. Continue with your call.
Give this information to your administrator to determine which physical trunk is
connected to that trunk group. Relay this information to your local telephone
company to report bad trunks.
