IVC Card Features and Support
Chapter 1
Integrated Voice Services
The Integrated Voice Services™ (IVS) feature provides interactive voice response (IVR)
functions without expensive IVR hardware. IVR functions include the generation of prerecorded messages and prompts for caller input. Callers usually provide input through
dual-tone multi-frequency (DTMF) tones, which IVS collects and analyzes.
The IVS provides a front-end for Automatic Call Distribution (ACD). It can request
caller input (through phrases such as "please enter your account number"). Caller input
helps ACD route calls and helps agents respond more effectively. IVR functions can:
•
Reduce costs
•
Improve access to information
•
Reduce data errors
•
Enhance customer retention
•
Improve productivity
The hardware that provides IVR functionality is either an Integrated Voice Controller
(IVC) card or module. See "IVC Cards and Modules" for details. PointSpan 1.0 or later
(with Deluxe ACD functionality) supports IVS. IVS requires an Ethernet Open
Application Interface (OAI) to receive phrase files from an interconnected PC. See "IVS
Phrase Management."
ACD call guides control core IVR functions, including phrase generation, prompts, digit
collection, and call routing based on user input. For detailed information, see "Call Guide
Support for IVS."
Table 1 describes core IVS capabilities.
Table 1. IVS Capabilities

Capability
Description
Integrated Announcement
The full IVR capability that combines IVS phrase
generation and digit collection.
IVS Phrase Generation
IVS provides many audio files that contain speech,
tones, music, or other forms of audio. It can play
these phrases to a caller.
Digit Collection
Using a Digit Collection Template and the Get
Digits call guide command, IVS can collect DTMF
digits as input from a caller.
M

Chapter 1, Integrated Voice Services
Capability
Description
Caller Directed Routing
Based on caller input (typically in the form of
DTMF digits), IVS routes calls to appropriate
agents or related systems to provide more effective
call processing and responsiveness.
Phrase Management
The IVS Phrase Manager™ is a PC application
that records, uploads, organizes, and manages
audio files for use by an IVC card or module.
Any third-party software can record the audio files,
but the IVS Phrase Manager must upload them
(across an OAI channel) to ensure that they play
at a safe volume.
The Phrase Manager stores audio files in “mu-law”
format (8 KHz, 8-bit), a telephony standard.
Support for CLASS Services
IVS can support CLASS (Custom Local Area
Signaling Services) features, including:
• Selective Call Forwarding
• Anonymous Call Rejection
• Automatic Recall
• Remote CLASS Feature Access
• Caller Identification with Name and Number
Port Sharing
Several callers can share the same IVC device
(IVC card port), which improves the efficiency of
port use.
Diagnostic Testing
An IVC card can, with proper configuration,
perform diagnostic tests.
This functionality allows an IVC card to replace a
Diagnostic Test Interface (DTI) card in a system.
2
M
M
Intelligent Queuing
IVS can give each caller an anticipated wait time
before an agent will answer the call. Intelligent
Queuing helps a caller decide whether or not to
continue to hold.
Play IVS Phrase
A user of an ACD station (such as an ACD agent
or supervisor) can listen to IVS phrases.
Whisper Messaging
IVS can play audio messages on a destination
phone (such as an ACD agent station) before the
switch connects the incoming call. A whisper
message typically provides information about the
inbound call.

Description
IVS Group
A group of IVC cards (associated by a common IVS
group number).
IVS Phrase Group
A set of IVS phrases (associated by a common IVS
phrase group number). PointSpan supports up to
500 phrase groups.
IVS Phrase Identifier (Phrase ID)
A number that identifies a particular phrase within
an IVS phrase group.
IVS Phrase
An audio phrase played by an IVC device
(identified by an IVS phrase ID and an associated
IVS phrase group number). A phrase can include
speech, tones, music, or other forms of audio.
Call guide commands control the generation of IVS
phrases. See "Call Guide Support for IVS."
IVC Device
A port on either an IVC card or module. Each card
or module supports up to 72 ports or devices. The
addition of more IVC cards or modules increases
the number of available IVC devices. Each port on
the IVC device can play IVS phrases and collect
digits from callers.
Each IVC device is associated with one IVS group.
All IVC devices that are associated with the same
group can access the same set of announcements
and audio phrases.

IVS Phrase Management
Phrases (audio files that contain speech, tones, music, or other forms of audio) are
fundamental to Integrated Voice Services (IVS). Many third-party recording applications
allow you to create phrases for your call center. The IVS Phrase Manager, a PC
application, transfers phrases across an Open Application Interface (OAI) channel to an
IVS phrase database on the hard drive of a PointSpan switch. To make the phrases
available for use by IVS, switch control software stores the phrases on one or more
Integrated Voice Controller (IVC) cards or modules.

IVC Card Features and Support
Beyond creating, loading, and assigning phrases, phrase management requires a detailed
call center architecture, including how call guides use phrases and the assignment of
different phrases and IVC devices (ports) to IVS phrase groups. Within a switch, the IVS
phrase database maintains the relationships between IVC groups, IVS phrase groups, IVS
phrases, and IVC devices. Efficient phrase management, however, cannot rely entirely on
the switch database. Good phrase management begins with detailed call center planning
and effective call guide design.
System Phrases
Although a PointSpan switch cannot know the content of your system's unique phrases, it
offers some assistance in creating meaningful combinations. The Speak IVS Data step
plays a single variable or value to a caller, translating data values into audio phrases. For
example, it can translate 6000 into "six, zero, zero, zero." To support this Speak IVS Data
function, you must record all the system phrases, such as "one" and "six," that your
system's ACD call guides will generate. Then, assign all these system phrases to a single
phrase group and download them to an appropriate IVC card or module.
Table 3 shows the phrase identifiers that enable the system to properly translate Speak
IVS Data values into audio. The switch processes all of the phrase identifiers shown.
Your system, however, only requires phrases that its call guides will actually generate.
The exact translation of data depends on how your call guides define the data.

Phrase Combination
Although a single phrase can contain up to 1.5 hours of audio, many phrases are very
short, even single words or sounds. See "System Phrases" for examples. Sequences of
Speak IVS Phrase and Speak IVS Data call guide steps allow you to combine such short
phrases into longer, more meaningful announcements. How you record and combine
phrases is critical.
Example
Assume that the system needs to generate the following message:
"The queue depth for pilot six-zero-zero-zero is currently three hundred forty-eight."
In this example, the phrase "The queue depth for pilot" is phrase number 1 in phrase
group 40. The value 6000 is in variable V1; "six" and "zero" are system phrases in phrase
group 8. The phrase "is currently" is phrase number 2 in phrase group 40. The value 348
is in variable V2; "three," "hundred," "forty," and "eight" are system phrases in phrase
group 8. Phrase groups 8 and 40 are both in IVC group 7.
The following call guide steps combine the phrases:

IVC Card Features and Support
Chapter 2
IVC Cards and Modules
The hardware that supports Integrated Voice Services (IVS) and provides interactive
voice response (IVR) functions is either an Integrated Voice Controller (IVC) card or
module. Each IVC card or module supports up to 72 ports for a PointSpan switch. Each
port (also called an IVC device) plays IVS phrases and collects dual-tone multi-frequency
(DTMF) digits. An IVS phrase can contain speech, tones, music, or other forms of audio.
A PointSpan switch supports over 65,000 IVS phrases. With more IVC cards or modules,
a switch increases the number of IVC devices that are available.
Each IVC card or module supports up to 89 minutes of pre-recorded audio. The hard
drive of a PointSpan system can store up to 190 minutes of pre-recorded audio. You can
distribute the audio on the hard drive to many different IVC cards, as needed to support
IVS groups, IVS phrase groups, hardware partitions, and system capacity.
Each IVC card resides in one of the 16 universal slots in a PointSpan Interface Shelf,
Interface Module, or Fiber Extended Node (FXN).
Slot 16 of an FXN Fiber Exchange Link (FXL) shelf, however, cannot support an IVC
card, because that slot does not support 72 ports.
Connectors with latching levers on the front edge seat the card securely in corresponding
backplane connectors. A 3-amp fuse (F9) protects the card's +5 V dc circuit.
The rear edge of the card provides the following interface connections:
•
A control and interface link connector (P1)
•
An 8-pin power connector (P2)
•
Two 10BaseT data connectors (P3 and P4)

IVS Groups
An Integrated Voice Services (IVS) group represents a collection of IVC cards
(associated by a common IVS group number). An IVS group allows different IVC cards
to share common IVS phase groups and phrases. An IVS group contains a list of
associated phrase groups and a list of all IVC cards with circuits assigned to it. The IVS
group database maintains the relationships between phrase groups and IVC circuits.
The combination of a phrase identification number and an associated phrase group
number uniquely identifies each phrase in the switch database.

IVS Phrase Manager
The Integrated Voice Services (IVS) Phrase Manager is a PC application that records,
uploads, organizes, and manages audio files for use by an Integrated Voice Controller
(IVC) card or module. Any third-party software can record the audio files. However, to
ensure that they play at a safe volume, the IVS Phrase Manager must upload them across
an Open Application Interface (OAI) channel to a PointSpan switch. The Phrase Manager
supports audio files in "mu-law" format (8 KHz, 8-bit), a telephony standard. You must
convert files of other audio formats (such as .wav and .snd) before importing them into
the Phrase Manager database.
Each audio file contains speech, tones, music, or another form of audio and represents
a single phrase. Although a phrase can contain up to 1.5 hours of audio, most phrases are
very short, often a single word or sound. The IVS system allows you to combine phrases
from the same phrase group to create longer, more meaningful announcements. For more
detail, see "IVS Phrase Management," "System Phrases," and "Phrase Combination."
Table 5 describes the core capabilities of the IVS Phrase Manager.
Table 5. Phrase Manager Capabilities
Capability
Description
Record, Save, and Store Phrases
The Phrase Manager can record phrases and save
them to an audio database. Each phrase must have a
unique combination of phrase identification and
phrase group. (For example, phrase 4 of group 1 and
phrase 4 of group 2 are different phrases.)
As an option, the database can associate other
information, such as a description, with each phrase.
It stores all phrases in "mu-law" format (8 KHz,
8-bit), with a .au extension.
When the Phrase Manager imports audio files
created by other programs, pressing a "volume"
button reduces the volume of files that are too loud.
The Phrase Manager can print the contents of its
audio database.

Call Guide and Digit Collection Template
Call guides and digit collection templates are two extremely important constructs that
support the Integrated Voice Services (IVS) feature.
Call Guide Support for IVS
ACD call guides control core interactive voice response (IVR) functions of Aastra's
Integrated Voice Services (IVS) feature. See the ACD Call Guide User Manual (2545nnn) for complete information on call guides and how to create them. The following call
guide features, however, specifically support IVS:
•
Announcement Pause step
•
Get Digits step (which requires a digit collection template)
•
End Get Digits step
•
Speak IVS Phrase step
•
Speak IVS Data step
Announcement Pause Step
An Announcement Pause (APAU) call guide step inserts silence between two
announcements or Integrated Voice Services (IVS) phrases. An Announcement Pause
call guide step has the following parameters.
Parameter
Function
IVS Group
Assigns an IVS group, by number, to play the pause.
Allowable Parameter Types
Fixed value, user-defined constant
Phrase Duration
Defines the length of the pause, from ten milliseconds
to ten minutes, in millisecond increments, rounded to
the nearest ten millisecond. For example, a value of
1000 indicates a pause of one second and a value of 502
indicates a one-half second pause.
Allowable Parameter Types
Fixed value, user-defined constant, user-defined
variable, system variable, pre-defined function
Aastra - 2489-005
M

Chapter 7, Call Guide and Digit Collection Template
Parameter
Function
Agent Available Interrupt
When this option is enabled, the system can interrupt
the silent pause to route the call to an available agent.
Otherwise, when this option is not enabled, the system
must complete the silence for its entire phrase duration
before routing the call to an available agent. By default,
the system enables this option.
Allowable Parameter Types
Fixed value, pre-defined constant, user-defined
constant, user-defined variable, system variable,
pre-defined function
If the system cannot process an Announcement Pause step (because no IVC device is
available or for any other reason), it immediately skips the step and processes the next
step in the call guide. It does not perform error handling.
Get Digits Step
A Get Digits (GDGT) call guide step initiates the collection of one or more digits from
a caller and passes the collected digits to a variable. Collected digits can be either a digit
string or an integer. The system passes each digit string (such as an account number or
pass code) directly to a string variable. The system converts digits that represent an
integer value (such as a monetary value) and passes them to an integer variable.
An End Get Digits step must always follow a Get Digits step. The following steps,
however, can occur between a Get Digits and End Digits step:
•
Speak IVS Phrase (with the same IVS group as the Get Digits step)
•
Speak IVS Data (with the same IVS group as the Get Digits step)
•
If / Else / End If
•
Announcement Pause
•
Set
The system groups all steps between a Get Digits and End Digits steps, playing them as a
single prompt announcement after it begins collecting digits.
An Administrative Console does not prompt for an IVS group for any steps between a
Get Digits and an End Get Digits step. Such steps inherit the IVS group from the Get
Digits step.
A Get Digits step has the following parameters:

Speak IVS Phrase Step
A Speak IVS Phrase (SPHR) call guide step plays a phrase from an IVC device to a
connected caller. An IVS phrase can provide speech, tones, music, or other forms of
audio. Many third-party recording applications allow you to create phrases for your call
center. To make phrases available for inclusion in a call guide, switch control software
stores them on one or more IVS cards or modules. Sequences of Speak IVS Phrase and
Speak IVS Data steps can combine phrases to create announcements with more meaning
than a single phrase. For complete details on IVS phrases and their functionality, see
"IVS Phrase Management," "Phrase Combinations," and related sections in the IVC Card
Features and Support manual (2489-nnn).
A Speak IVS Phrase call guide step has the following parameters:

Chapter 7, Call Guide and Digit Collection Template
Special Handling of IVS Phrases, Data, and Pauses
During call guide processing, an Aastra switch groups the following steps when they are
sequential and use the same IVS group:
•
Announcement Pause step
•
Goto step
•
If / Else / End If steps
•
Set step
•
Speak IVS Data step
•
Speak IVS Phrase step
A switch stops grouping steps whenever it encounters any other step or one of these steps
with a different phrase group.
To prevent possible delays between phrases, a switch collects all phrases, data, and
pauses for sequential steps that share a common phrase group before instructing an IVC
device to play them. Without grouping, an IVC device could complete the first of two
related phrases before it receives the second phrase. The switch proceeds to another call
guide step after an IVC device finishes playing all the collected phrases, data, and pauses.
If an IVC device fails to play any of the collected phrases, data, or pauses, the switch
skips to the alternate call guide step that Speak IVS Phrase and Speak IVS Data steps
define for times when an IVC device is unavailable.
Be careful when changing variables with a Set step. A Set step within a group of
sequential steps that share a common phrase group can change variables that previous
steps in the group use. For example, a Set step can change a system variable that a
preceding Speak IVS Phrase step uses to define the phrase identifier. Because the system
does not play phrases until it processes all the steps in the group, the Set step could cause
the Speak IVS Phrase step to refer to an incorrect or invalid phrase.
Digit Collection
The collection of input from callers, usually in the form of dual-tone multi-frequency
(DTMF) digits, is a primary capability of IVS. Digit collection requires a digit collection
template, a construct that defines the characteristics of the caller input to be collected.
Each Get Digits step in a call guide uses a digit collection template. Different Get Digits
steps can share the same digit collection template.

Chapter 8
IVS Support for CLASS Features
CLASS (Custom Local Area Signaling Services) features are a bundled set of telephony
capabilities provided by PointSpan. Although these features have been readily available
in public markets for many years, PointSpan supports them in private networks where
they are otherwise unavailable. The Interactive Voice Services (IVS) feature supports
CLASS features by providing interactive voice response (IVR) functions. IVR prompts
efficiently guide users through process directions and collect digits for access codes,
authorization codes, and other information. Enabling IVS to support CLASS features
requires you to properly configure interactive voice controller (IVC) cards.
The CLASS features that IVS supports include:
•
Selective Call Forwarding (SCF)
•
Anonymous Call Rejection
•
Automatic Recall
•
Remote CLASS Feature Access
•
Caller Identification with Name and Number
(The more technical name for this CLASS feature is Type II Analog Calling Name
and Number Delivery)
For detailed information on CLASS features, see the following:
•
PointSpan Station Database Procedures (2512-nnn)
•
PointSpan System Database Procedures (2513-nnn)
•
PointSpan Features and Enhancements (2536-nnn)
•
PointSpan CLASS Feature Set Users Guide (2548-nnn)
•
PointSpan CLASS Feature Set Quick Reference Guide (2549-nnn)
IVS Support for Selective Call forwarding
IVS can support the Selective Call Forwarding (SCF) CLASS feature. With SCF, users
can forward incoming calls from specific telephone numbers to a single forwarding
destination. Each SCF subscriber can create a screening list that defines up to ten
telephone numbers. When the subscriber's directory number receives a call from any of
the numbers on its associated SCF screening list, the system forwards the call to the
subscriber's SCF forwarding destination.
Aastra - 2489-005
M
M
67
Chapter 8, IVS Support for CLASS Features
IVS Support for Anonymous Call Rejection
IVS can support the Anonymous Call Rejection CLASS feature. When a user activates
Anonymous Call Rejection, the system blocks any incoming calls for which the calling
party number is "private." Callers who have blocked their numbers from Caller ID will
hear an announcement that the user does not accept anonymous calls. The announcement
recommends that the caller remove blocking and call back. When the system blocks an
anonymous call, the user’s phone does not ring. The system accepts calls that present a
calling party number or have an unavailable calling party number (for reasons other than
blocking). For such calls, the user’s phone rings.
IVS Support for Automatic Recall
IVS can support the Automatic Recall CLASS feature. With Automatic Recall, a user can
(by pressing *69) automatically redial the last incoming number without having to know
the calling party number of that call. When Automatic Recall requires confirmation, the
system can speak the caller's number. When Automatic Recall lacks confirmation, the
system cannot speak the caller's number.
IVS Support for Remote CLASS Feature Access
IVS can support the Remote CLASS Feature Access capability. This CLASS feature
allows a user to access the following CLASS features from a line other than their primary
line:
•
CLASS Service Call Forward
•
Anonymous Call Rejection
•
Selective Call Forwarding
With IVS support, the Remote CLASS Feature Access capability generates audible voice
prompts for the user during the activation process.
IVS Support for Caller Identification with Name and Number
IVS can support the Type II Analog Caller Name and Number Delivery feature. This
CLASS feature provides Caller Identification (Caller ID), when the IVC card supports a
Frequency Shift Keying (FSK) application.
To support this CLASS feature, PointSpan must include the PRI ANI application with
name and number calling party identification (CPID) enabled for analog and digital
trunk-to-station and station-to-trunk calls. This feature applies for station-to-station,
station-to-trunk, and trunk-to-trunk calls. It works on both analog and digital stations.

Aastra – 2489-005
IVC Card Features and Support
Caller ID, which identifies the original subscriber line, provides the following
information for the originating call:
•
Calling party's number
•
Calling party's name (the name, if available, associated with the directory listing)
•
Date of call
•
Time of call
The system sends the calling party information on the destination subscriber loop
between the first and second rings. It sends the information serially as two tones in FSK
mode. The first tone represents logic-1 (mark) and the second tone represents logic-0
(space). Caller ID uses the same frequencies, modulation type, and data format as Bell
type 202 modems.
The Caller ID message contains a Channel Seizure string, followed by a Mark string,
followed by the caller information. Caller information is in either Single Data Message
Format (SDMF) or Multiple Data Message Format (MDMF). SDMF does not include the
calling party's name.
The calling party's number is either a directory number, a seven-digit Network
Numbering Plan (NNP) number, or a number provided by the public switched telephone
network (PSTN). See "Calling Party Number Format" for details.
To enable IVS to support Caller ID and Call Waiting, you must configure an Integrated
Voice Controller (IVC) card with an FSK application that can generate call information
in MDMF. The FSK IVC is a shared resource in the PointSpan system. With the System
Parameters (SPAR) command, you can assign each of the card's 72 ports to an FSK
Group (FSKG). With the SPAR command, assign one FSKG to each switching partition
that supports Caller ID. You must equip every FSKG port in a partition. For any call,
caller information is sent by an FSK circuit that belongs to the FSKG assigned to the
partition for the destination station.
See "Enable IVS Support for Caller Identification" for an overview of the process.
Table 7 describes the conditions that determine the calling party number.
A calling party's number is either:
•
A directory number
•
A seven-digit Network Numbering Plan (NNP) number
•
A number from the public network

Assign an appropriate IVS group to each partition that supports stations with
CLASS features. See "Assign an IVS Group to a Partition" for a procedure.
3
Assign all appropriate phrase groups to CLASS features user groups. See
"Assign an IVS Phrase Group to a CLASS User Group" for a procedure.
Table 8 shows all of the system phrases required to support CLASS features. It includes
the identification number for each phrase and the specific CLASS features that use each
phrase. This set of phrases includes some of the standard IVS support phrases (see
"System Phrases") and adds other phrases specifically for CLASS features.
You can modify some phrases slightly, but must ensure that the resulting messages from
combined phrases still provide the intended meanings.

Port Sharing
The Integrated Voice Services (IVS) Port Sharing feature enables several callers to
share the same Integrated Voice Controller (IVC) device (port), which improves
the efficiency of port use. With this feature, multiple calls can access a port to allow
different callers to listen to the same message at the same time. IVS messages can be
requested by either a command (step) in a call guide or by the Whisper Messaging
function.
An IVS message consists of one or more phrases. Two messages are identical if they
contain the same IVS phrases in the exact same order. IVS Port Sharing activates when
two or more calls request an identical message from the same IVS group.
The IVS Port Sharing feature requires a delay between the time a first call requests a
message and when an IVC device plays the message. The delay allows a window of
opportunity for other calls to request the same message. After the delay, a single IVC
device plays the same message for all calls that requested it.
Port sharing is not possible for a port that, based on the call guide for a current call, must
collect digits.
IVS Port Sharing Parameters
Two IVS group parameters enable and control IVS Port Sharing. See "Create an IVS
Group" or "Modify an IVS Group" for a procedure to define these parameters.
Aastra - 2489-005
Port Sharing Parameter
Description
Share Wait Time
The duration that the PointSpan switch waits for other
requests for an identical message before having an IVC
device play that message. The value of this parameter can
be from 1 to 60,000 ms or "None," which disables Port
Sharing. The default is 200 ms.
Maximum Count for Share
The total number of calls that can share a single IVC
device. Upon getting requests for a single message from
that number of calls, the PointSpan switch immediately
stops waiting and has an IVC device play the message to
all of the calls. The value of this parameter can be from 1
to 1000 or "None," which allows each single IVC device to
support unlimited calls at the same time. The default is 5.
M
M
83
Chapter 9, Port Sharing
An IVS message can be requested by either a call guide command (step) or the Whisper
Messaging function.
If an IVC device is immediately available, the system delays for the duration defined by
the Share Wait Time value to allow other calls to request the same message. During this
delay, if a number of calls equal to the Maximum Count for Share value request the same
message, the IVC device immediately plays the message.
If an IVC device is not immediately available, the system waits for one. If a call guide
step makes the request, the system waits for as long as specified in the call guide. (If an
IVC device is not available within that time, the switch proceeds to the next step in the
guide.) If Whisper Messaging makes the request, the system waits for the duration
specified by the Whisper Device Wait Time (WDW) parameter in the associated User
Group (UGRP). If a port is still not available when the WDW time expires, the system
removes the request from the queue. If a port becomes available within the WDW time,
the system continues to delay for the remainder of the Share Wait Time duration, if any,
or until the number of calls waiting for the message reaches the Maximum Count for
Share value.
Delays between phrases can effect the IVS Port Sharing function. See "Special Handling
of IVS Phrases, Data, and Pauses."

Diagnostic Testing
An IVC card can, with the proper configuration, perform diagnostic tests. In this way,
an IVC card can replace a Diagnostic Test Interface (DTI) card. An IVC card contains a
DTI circuit that supports many, but not all, diagnostic tests. For example, an IVC card
does not support Trunk Gain tests or other tests that require the test bus. See "Diagnostic
Tests Supported by IVC" for descriptions of the supported tests. For more information,
including procedures to run the tests, see the PointSpan System Diagnostics manual
(2499-nnn).
To enable the system to use the DTI circuit on an IVC card, follow the procedure in
"Configure an IVC Card to Support Diagnostic Testing."
Diagnostic Tests Supported by IVC
The following table describes the diagnostic tests available through an IVC card.

Intelligent Queuing
The Integrated Voice Services (IVS) feature provides optional Intelligent Queuing, in
which the system gives each caller an anticipated wait time before an agent will answer
the call. Intelligent Queuing helps a caller decide whether or not to continue to hold. If
the wait time is short, they may stay on longer than they would if they did not know the
wait time.
The system calculates and maintains the following Intelligent Queuing information:
•
The pilot queue depth when a new call enters a pilot
•
The estimated time until answer for a new call entering a pilot
•
The current pilot queue depth (allowing Intelligent Queuing to maintain changes to
queue depth during a call)
•
The estimated time until answer for a call that is still in queue (allowing Intelligent
Queuing to update the estimated time until answer for each call)
•
An average Queue Passage Rate for each pilot (extrapolated over one hour periods)
Enable Intelligent Queuing
The following table shows the activities to enable Intelligent Queuing.
Stage
Description
1
Establish an Intelligent Queuing Sample Interval for each pilot. See "Create an
ACD Pilot," "Modify an ACD Pilot," and "ACD Pilot Parameters" in the ACD
Administration Procedures manual (2542-nnn).

Configure the associated Prefix Digit Table (PDT) to outpulse the following:
• The pilot queue depth when a new call enters a pilot
• The estimated time until answer for a new call entering a pilot
• The current pilot queue depth (allowing Intelligent Queuing to maintain
changes to queue depth during a call)
• The estimated time until answer for a call that is still in queue (allowing
Intelligent Queuing to update the estimated time until answer for each call)

Whisper Messaging
Integrated Voice Services (IVS) can play audio messages on a destination phone (such as
an ACD agent station) before the switch connects the incoming call. A whisper message
typically provides information about the inbound call.
Table 9 describes the three different types of whisper messages.
Table 9. Whisper Message Types
Whisper Message Type
Description

Level
Dialed Number
Identification Service
(DNIS) whisper message
A whisper message for incoming calls
to any destination with a user group that
supports DNIS.
1
Automatic Call Distribution A whisper message for incoming calls to
(ACD) whisper message
an ACD pilot.
2
The system plays ACD whisper messages
only for calls to the ACD pilot. It does not
play whisper messages for direct calls to an
agent station.
Incoming trunk call
whisper message
A whisper message for incoming calls
from a specific trunk group.
3
The switch plays whisper messages based on the highest priority level applicable to
an incoming call. A DNIS message takes precedence over an ACD pilot message. Both
DNIS and ACD pilot message take precedence over a trunk message.
Table 10 shows the sequence of events for whisper messaging.

Description
IVC Device
When playing a whisper message from
an IVC device, the system identifies a
message by its unique phrase group and
phrase ID combination. The system
acquires the device from a specified IVS
group, connects the destination phone to
the device, and plays the appropriate
message.
Announcement
Trunk
When playing a whisper message from an
announcement trunk, the system may send
it optional information from a Prefix Digit
Table (PDT). The PDT information can
include a message number, digits, or both.
If it receives PDT information, the trunk
will play the message and any digits
specified by the PDT. If it does not receive
optional PDT information, the trunk
simply waits for the duration of the Voice
Response Unit (VRU) message time.

Broadcast Trunk
When playing a whisper message from a
broadcast trunk, the system connects to a
trunk that continuously repeats the same
message. The caller hears the message in
progress (not necessarily from the
beginning). The switch connects the call to
the trunk for the duration of the broadcast
announcement length (BAL).
Broadcast trunk group
The BAL is a Group (GRPS) parameter.
Source Not Available
If, when the system tries to play a whisper message, an appropriate source is not
available, the system waits for the duration of the whisper device wait (WDW) time. The
WDW time is a User Group (UGRP) parameter. If a source becomes available within the
WDW time, the system plays the whisper message. If a source does not become available
within the WDW time, the system plays a zip tone at the destination station and connects
the call.
