ESI Cordless Handset II Repeater The optional ESI Cordless Handset II Repeater extends the coverage area of the ESI Cordless Handset II in all directions, including up and down. If Repeaters are installed so their coverage area overlaps that of the base station, the base station can hand off calls to the Repeaters as the user moves from one coverage area to another. When it’s connected to a Repeater, the ESI Cordless Handset II operates exactly as it does when connected to its base station, and the handoff from the base station to the Repeater occurs seamlessly without disturbing the end user, even during an active call. Each ESI Cordless Handset II base station supports up to six repeaters, regardless of configuration. • Each Repeater supports up to two direct connections to other Repeaters. • No Repeater can be more than three connections — or hops — from the base station. All Repeaters, regardless of configuration, must be registered to the base station. Repeaters that are registered directly to a base station (left), do not require use of the optional Repeater Configurator Kit. These Repeaters can be installed using automatic configuration. However, Repeaters registered to the base station through another Repeater (one example shown, right) do require use of the Repeater Configurator Kit. For detailed information on installing Repeaters, refer to the ESI Cordless Handset II Repeater Installation Manual (ESI # 0450-1248).
Every call on a PRI span is sent with the called number in the setup message. This means you can determine whether to use a number as a pilot number or as a DID number. Pilot numbers are a means of routing a company’s primary published phone number differently from a DID. Each ESI Communications Server has a different capacity for pilot entries, each with its own answer ring assignment; see “Translation tables” in “System capacities” (page B.1). This is important, because the dynamic channel allocation prevents you from routing based on channel. Pilot numbers can be routed to an ID branch, department, extension or mailbox. This varies from DIDs in that, when a DID number is routed to an extension, it is considered answered and follows the busy/ no-answer routing of the extension; but, with pilot numbers, the call will be routed to the extensions for live answer for the designated number of rings, then can be routed to an ID branch in the event of busy/no-answer. If the PRI span is used for outgoing calls, pilot table entry 1 is used for outgoing Caller ID, as well. Because of this, pilot number entry 1 should always be programmed with 10 digits.
The System Administration application is installed on a PC that is connected to the LAN. Only a user on that PC can install the System Administration application. The System Administration application will communicate with the messaging system through its LAN port. Installation of the MERLIN Messaging or PARTNER Messaging System Administration application can be performed from the MERLIN Messaging System Release 4.0 Library CD or the PARTNER Messaging System Release 7.0 Library CD. Depending on your system, you select “PARTNER Messaging System Administration” or “MERLIN Messaging System Administration” under “Install Software” from the main window of the Library CD. This will automatically launch an installation wizard. Follow the instructions in the installation wizard to install the System Administration application.
Cordless Handset II Repeater The optional ESI Cordless Handset II Repeater extends the coverage area of the ESI Cordless Handset II in all directions, including up and down. If Repeaters are installed so their coverage area overlaps that of the base station, the base station can hand off calls to the Repeaters as the user moves from one coverage area to another. When it’s connected to a Repeater, the ESI Cordless Handset II operates exactly as it does when connected to its base station, and the handoff from the base station to the Repeater occurs seamlessly without disturbing the end user, even during an active call. Each ESI Cordless Handset II base station supports up to six repeaters, regardless of configuration. • Each Repeater supports up to two direct connections to other Repeaters. • No Repeater can be more than three connections — or hops — from the base station. All Repeaters, regardless of configuration, must be registered to the base station. Repeaters that are registered directly to a base station (left), do not require use of the optional Repeater Configurator Kit. These Repeaters can be installed using automatic configuration. However, Repeaters registered to the base station through another Repeater (one example shown, right) do require use of the Repeater Configurator Kit. For detailed information on installing Repeaters, refer to the ESI Cordless Handset II Repeater Installation
CO lines An ESI Communications Server can operate either on a station-by-station basis as a PBX or as a combined key/PBX using standard loop-start lines. If a station has line keys programmed, the user accesses the lines by pressing one of these keys or by dialing the line group number 9 (or 8 or 71–76). If a station does not have line keys programmed, the user always accesses CO lines by dialing 9 (or 8 or 71–76). Since the system handles call transfer and auto attendant functions efficiently, operating in the PBX mode provides more programmable feature keys for other uses and the opportunity for glare is greatly reduced. Notes: When a port card is added to or removed from the system — i.e., thus changing the number and configuration of cards in the system — you must reprogram the CO lines. However, if a port card is replaced by the same type of port card (e.g., when you replace a faulty 684 card with a new 684 card1), you don’t have to reprogram the CO lines. As a visual indication of CO line usage, the phone’s display will show on/off-hook line status. All phone programmable keys default to being unprogrammed (except on extension 100, where the first key defaults as a day/night key). Use extension button mapping (Function 35; see page G.36) to assign line keys system-wide. An individual station’s keys can be reassigned using either PROGRAM 2 or “radio-key programming” at that station.
System timing parameters Function 151: Flash hook duration This sets the time (in seconds) that a flash hook will be sent on the current line to the Telco from a digital phone set. The default setting of 1.5 will cause disconnect and fresh dial tone from the CO. Range: 0.2–2.0. Default: 1.5. Function 152: Transfer forward timer This sets the number of times a transferred or DID1 call will ring before following the day/night routing for the extension or department. Range: 1–9 rings. Default: 3. Function 153: Recall timers Function 1531: Exclusive hold recall timer This is the amount of time, in seconds, that a call will remain on exclusive hold before recalling to the extension that initiated the exclusive hold. Range: 5–960 seconds. Default: 60. Function 1532: Hold recall timer This is the amount of time, in seconds, that a call will remain on hold before recalling to the extension that initiated the hold. Range: 5–960 seconds. Default: 60. Function 1533: Hold recall timeout timer This is the number of times a station will recall-ring before being re-routed. Range: 2–40 rings. Default: 6. Function 154: ACD timers Function 1541: ACD exit timer This is the amount of time, in seconds, that a call will remain in ACD department queues before following the department reroute (see Function 33, page G.23). Range: 5–600 seconds (or 0 for no limit). Default: 180. Function 1542: ACD wrap timer This is the maximum amount of time, in seconds, that an agent can remain in wrap mode. If this function is turned off, agents cannot place their stations in Wrap Mode (see the “ACD agent operation” chapter in the User’s Guide). Range: 5–600 seconds (0 for no limit). Default: 0 (no limit). Function 1543: ACD hold recall timer This is the amount of time, in seconds, that a call will remain on hold by a logged-in ACD agent before recall. (A logged-out user will follow the Function 1532 timer when placing someone on hold.) Range: 5–960 seconds. Default: 60.
This manual provides information for completely programming a new DX-80 system from scratch. Comdial also provides you with some tools you can use to reduce your programming time. These tools include: • a series of worksheets for you to plan your system structure, and record the programming for future reference if necessary. For more details, see Appendix A, Worksheets. • copying a base CO line or extension’s setups to several other CO line or extensions thereby eliminating the need to program them individually, and • using one of four standard database programming templates provided with the DX-80 on CD part number DX80UTILCD. You can choose the template that most closely matches your new customer’s site needs, and then add whatever custom changes you need to make. This approach saves you the time of programming the entire system from scratch. For more information on these and other aids the DX-80 provides to allow you to program a system efficiently, see Section 3.1, Shortcuts to Help You Work Faster. When you are programming a new system from scratch, perform the following basic tasks: 1. Set up the system features. 2. Set up the CO lines. 3. Set up call handling. 4. Set up the toll restrictions. 5. Set up the UCD groups. 6. Set up Voice Mail (if applicable).

Use this option to enable or disable themailbox. An extension mailbox is not ac-cessible when it is disabled (even thoughits stored messages and configuration areretained in memory.) If disabled, a userpressing Message initiates a remote logonand is asked to enter their mailbox num-ber. A voice prompt then announces: “Thatmailbox does not exist.”To make programming easier, considerassociating a mailbox number with a sta-tion port. For example, mailbox 1 couldcorrespond to port 1, which in turn corre-sponds to extension 101.Mailbox 1 ~ 64 :1Mailbox 65 ~ : 002Mailbox NumberUp to eight digitsUse this option to select the extensionnumber associated with the mailbox youare programming. Normally, mailbox 1should use Mailbox Number 101, mailbox2 should use Mailbox Number 201, 101etc.To make programming easier, considerassociating a mailbox number with a sta-tion port.

Repeater installation notes To achieve optimum operation from your ESI Cordless Handset II Repeater: • Place the Repeater at least six feet off the ground so it has a clear line-of-sight. • Make sure the Repeater has good reception from the base station (or Repeater to which it is daisy-chained). • Make sure the Repeater location is close to a standard 120 VAC power outlet. • Never install electrical cords across traffic areas where they can cause a tripping hazard (additionally, such cords, if damaged, may create fire or electrical hazards). • Allow at least 35 feet between Repeaters. If you install Repeaters across multiple floors, be sure to allow 35 feet vertically, too. • Install the Repeater away from sources of electrical interference. Examples include audio systems, office equipment, and microwave ovens. • Install the Repeater away from heat sources and direct sunlight. • Install the Repeater away from items that can interfere with radio signals. Examples include metal doors, thick walls, niches, and cupboards. In case of trouble If you have followed the guidelines described herein and still encounter problems with ESI Cordless Handsets, please call ESI Technical Support at 800 491-3609 or e-mail to email@example.com. When contacting ESI Technical Support, be sure to have as much of the following site and usage information as possible: • Square footage of the building. • Layout of building/offices, and locations of base stations and repeaters. This can be a hand-drawn diagram with locations of base stations (you can fax it to ESI at 972 422-9705; be sure to indicate that it goes to Technical Support). The objective is to give the ESI technician an idea of the site’s layout. • Number of Cordless Handsets, whether they are Cordless Handsets II or original Cordless Handsets, and how many are of each type (digital, Local IP, or Remote IP). • How the troublesome Cordless Handset is being used. For example, is it used by a supervisor who travels the entire area of the building many times per day, or by an administrative assistant to go a short distance from an office to a copy room? • Where the problem occurs — e.g., if a Cordless Handset cuts in and out when used in a certain area of the building.
If this option is set to 0, the F-Route table selected is determined only by the digits dialed without any relation to the day or time of the call. If this option is set to 1, the system first refers to PRG 44-10. If there is a match, the pattern defined in that program is used. If not, the F-Route pattern in PRG 44-09 and time setting in 44-08 are used. 02 03 Dial Tone Simulation (V2.0 Added) Tone Kind (V2.0 Added) Conditions None 1 digit (0 ~ 9) *, # cant be used 0 = Internal DT 1 = External DT When first dialed digit matches with the data set in this Program, system send simulated DT to calling party after receiving first digit. Numbering plan for the dial needs to configure as F-Route at PRG 11-01. Set simulated DT kind which can change the tone used at PRG 44-01-02 and PRG 44-02-04.
PRI local number digit length Tells the system whether there is seven- or 10-digit local dialing in the system’s area. If the local calling area uses only seven-digit dialing, set this value to 7 (this tells the system not to wait for additional digits when a local seven-digit number is dialed). Range: 7 or 10. Default: 10 (supports both 10- and seven-digit dialing). Field 8: Dialing off-hold Enables or disables outside callers’ ability to dial off-hold only when MOH 590 (external source) is selected. When this is enabled, CO callers will be able to dial extension, department, and mailbox numbers while on hold. When this is disabled, the system will ignore digits dialed by CO callers. To enable or disable outside callers’ ability to dial off-hold, press a scroll key to make the desired selection and then press # to confirm. Default: Enabled. Field 9: Re-sending of Caller ID in Intelligent Call Forwarding This parameter “turns off” the repeat Caller ID (re-sending) component of Intelligent Call Forwarding. Some service providers — local exchange carriers or inter-exchange carriers — don’t allow repeating the caller’s CID data when making an outgoing call. If re-sending of Caller ID is disabled, the PRI pilot number of the station’s tenant will be sent instead. If re-sending of Caller ID is enabled, CO calls that are forwarded to an off-premises number over a PRI channel will send the original caller’s CID data to the called person. To enable or disable this parameter, press a scroll key to make the desired selection and then press # to confirm. Default: Enabled.
Adding a KSU2 Second Cabinet You can add one KSU2 to a KSU1. The KSU2 adds: • eight digital DX-80 extension ports • four CO line ports • one Power Failure Transfer port • Extension Expansion connectors for two additional DPM8s or one APM4 • Ribbon cable for one APM4 • Ribbon cable for one COM4 Connect the KSU2 to the KSU1 via a designated connector located on the CPM inside the KSU1. To install the KSU2 perform the following steps. 1. Be sure that the entire system is turned off. 2. Remove the KSU cover (four screws at each corner) on both KSU1 and KSU2. 3. Connect a static discharge wrist strap to a suitable earth ground. Be sure that the strap is touching bare skin.
Installation Overview The following steps provide an overview of the installation process. Details on each of these steps are contained in the following sections of this chapter. Be sure to read the detailed instructions before installing the DX-80. 1. Plan the installation, including the KSU1 or KSU1 and KSU2 and Main Distribution Frame (MDF) location, station locations, cable runs, and optional equipment. 2. Assemble the correct tools and supplies: UTP telephony grade cable/wiring, miscellaneous telephony hardware, 66 blocks, modular wall jacks, etc.) 3. Run the wiring for speakerphones, DSS consoles and analog devices (FAX machines, modems, etc.) from the MDF to each location. Wiring topology is referred to as “star-wiring” configuration; no cable should loop from one telephone location to another. 4. Run cable/wiring to any optional equipment, such as external paging equipment, loud bell signaling devices, music sources, etc. 5. Mount the MDF backboard and attach the terminal blocks on the backboard. Use a dedicated MDF with 66 block wiring field to promote full serviceability of the system and connections using proven techniques. If you route extension cables into the KSU, you have to terminate one cable pair into standard crimping modular connectors for each cable.
Setting Up UCD Voice Announce (VA) Groups The DX-80 system provides UCD groups to allow you to handle high traffic using third-party ancillary RADs. Whenever the overflow destinations of a UCD group require you to use more than one RAD to handle the volume of call traffic, you can pool the RADs in a group (available UCD group) for access. If you do this, any of the available devices can handle waiting calls with the same announcement. The following conditions apply. • You must assign all voice announce UCD group members to port type V.A. • You must record all ancillary RAD devices individually for the same announcement. These conditions do not apply when using the DX-80 VP system for UCD Overflow announcements. 8.4.1 PROGRAMMING USING THE DET Note: chg, bksp, save, one, always, del, and ack are interactive LCD button operations. Use the three buttons below the LCD display to actuate the associated operation. 1. Enter Database Administration using the feature code Feature # * and then enter the DB Admin password. 2. Press show. The system displays the DB Item Select screen. 3. First, program the analog extension ports as type V.A. 4. Enter 01-nnn-21, then press save (where “nnn” is the extension number of the analog port connected to an ancillary RAD Device). This advances you to the selected extension Port Type field. 5. Press chg to select VA.
DSS (Direct Station Selection) Console The DSS console is a digitally interfaced component of the DX-80. It connects to the system via any available digital port (408M/E or DPM8 digital port). The DSS is equipped with 60 programmable buttons. Twelve of these buttons are intended for features code storage only and do not have LED indications associated with them. Forty eight buttons are equipped with dual color (red / green) LEDs and may be assigned any system feature code or directory number; these buttons may be assigned for either system features operations or CO line access operations. You can mount the DSS console in one of two positions: lower profile desk position and wall mounted position. DSS consoles are programmed to operate with an associated speakerphone. You can assign up to four DSS consoles per speakerphone. The maximum number of DSS consoles supported by the DX-80 is 12. Each equipped DSS console requires one digital port, therefore the total number (system capacity) of speakerphones possible is reduced by one for each DSS console
CO line connection Note: For greatest simplicity, this section mentions each port card without the use of an “ESI,” “E2-,“ or “CS-“ prefix, as cards otherwise are functionally identical — e.g., we refer to an E2-684 or CS-684 as just a “684.” Local loop An ESI Communication Server’s advanced CO line circuitry provides for open loop detection and the system’s built-in Caller ID interface. Loop start lines are connected via the last 6 pairs on each 66 block on the 612 and 684 cards. Note: Observe correct order of connection to preserve proper rotary hunting of the CO lines. T1/PRI For T1 or PRI applications (only PRI on the ESI-50; it doesn’t support T1), an ESI Communications Server can use a compatible digital line card (DLC)1: • ESI-1000, ESI-600, ESI-200, ESI-100 — DLC and DLC12, each for either T1 or PRI. • ESI-50 — DLC82 for only PRI. Depending on how you configure it, each supports either (a.) a single T1 circuit at 24 DS0 channels or (b.) a PRI circuit supporting 23 “B” (bearer) channels and one “D” (data link) channel. The DLC12 and DLC82 each also support 12 digital stations. The T1 or PRI line is connected via the last two pairs of the industry-standard 50-pin amphenol cable connector on the front of the DLC. Each ESI Communications Server has a different maximum number of system-wide DLCs (see “Port card options,” page A.4). Partial T1 or PRI applications are supported through line programming. Each DLC has built-in CSU functionality. The integrated CSU can be enabled or disabled via system programming2. The following functionality is provided: line, payload, DTE and none (normal operation) loopback modes with the ability to respond back controlled via system programming; alarm conditions, and both ANSI T1.403 and TR 54016 performance messages for ESF only. Important: On the ESI-50, the DLC82 may be installed in only slot 2. If you’re installing more than one T1 or PRI, the DLC in the lowest number slot will synchronize (“slave”) the system with the public network. The system will synchronize to only one clock source. Therefore, ESI strongly recommends that the first DLC in the system be connected to the T1 or PRI that’s connected either to the local CO or the nationwide long-distance provider, either of which typically will provide veryhigh-accuracy clocking (Strata 3). The DLC doesn’t provide master or sub-master clocking for privatenetwork T1 spans.
VRS Fixed Message 02 General Message Number Input Data 0 = Disable (VRS fixed message will not be played.) 1 = Enable (VRS fixed message will be played.) 0 ~ 100 (0 = No General Message Service) Description Enable (1) or disable (0) the system ability to play the fixed VRS messages (such as You have a message). This item assigns the VRS message number to use for the General Message.

If an extension has Personal Greeting enabled and all VRS ports are busy, a DIL or DISA call to the extension waits this time for a VRS port to become free. If a Park and Page is not picked up during this time, the Paging announcement repeats. This item assigns the VRS Message number to be used as Private Call Refuse. When Fixed message is set, VRS message guidance is: “Your call cannot go through.” This item assigns the VRS Message number to be used as Caller ID Refuse. When Fixed Message is set, VRS message guidance is: “Your call cannot go through.” 0 (No Setting) 0 0 0 0 0
While a caller waits for a UCD group member to answer (in queue), several queued call operations are possible. These include the following. • No Answer – Member advancement. Each UCD group has a No Answer Timer. You can set this timer to advance the call from one UCD group member to the next when the ringing member does not answer the call within the time allotted. • Overflow 1 Destination programming. Each UCD group has an overflow 1 timer and destination. You can set this timer to determine how long calls will remain in queue, before being routed to the overflow 1 destination. The destination can be an extension responsible for handling calls that remain in queue too long, or a voice announcement device. You can use recorded announcement devices to play recorded messages to callers waiting in queue, for example, “All agents are still busy - please continue to hold.” The system plays the overflow 1 destination only once. For high traffic scenarios, you can use a recorded voice announcement UCD group to play the same message to multiple callers. • Overflow 2 Destination programming. Each UCD group has an overflow 2 timer and destination. You can set this timer to determine how long calls will remain in queue, following the overflow 1 timer, before being routed to the overflow 2 destination (overflow 1 timer + overflow 1 destination recorded message time + overflow 2 timer.) The destination can be an extension responsible for handling calls that remain in queue too long or a voice announcement device. You can use recorded announcement devices to play recorded messages to callers waiting in queue, for example, “Please continue to hold to reserve your place in queue.” For high traffic scenarios, you can use a recorded voice announcement UCD group to play the same message to multiple callers. • Overflow Count programming. Each UCD group has an overflow count that is associated with the overflow 2 timer. You can set this timer to allow a specific number of times that the system may repeat the overflow 2 timer. For each cycle of the overflow 2 timer, the system plays the overflow 2 destination recording. If a call remains in queue so long that the overflow count counter expires, the system routes this call to the programmed reroute destination. • Reroute Destination programming. Each UCD Group has a reroute destination. You can program this with an extension number the system uses to remove the call from UCD group queue. The system then routes the call for immediate handling. Other features whose programming may affect UCD programming includes the following. • CO Line Ring Assignment • UCD Reroute Destination • UCD Voice Announce Group • UCD Agent Log On/Log Off • Voice Mail - Digital Integration • Recorded Announcement Devices (RADs)

LED functions The unit's various LEDs are designed to provide visual feedback as follows: Power LED The Power LED is located on the right side of the Base Cabinet, and is illuminated when power is being applied to the system. This LED blinks periodically to indicate that the main processor is operational. Port LEDs The Port LEDs are located above their respective connectors on each installed port card. Each LED is illuminated when any port on its associated port card is in use. Note: Disconnecting a connector when its respective LED is lit will disconnect any of its ports that are in use. Upon power-up, approximately five minutes are required for the system to configure. The Power and Port LEDs will blink three times to indicate that the power-up sequence has been completed. Note: When the LED on a DLC1 is . . . • . . . blinking, the T1/PRI circuit is out of service. • . . . not lit at all, the T1/PRI circuit is in service but is idle. • . . . lit solidly, the T1/PRI circuit and/or a station on the card are in use.

Remote connection to the DX-80 system is possible via modem. The optional modem may be purchased allowing remote administration of the DX-80 system database and maintenance operations. The default directory number of the modem is 199. Some working knowledge of modem operation and connection is useful. 188.8.131.52 F10-RS232C This function key is used to setup the PC COM port. To successfully setup the PC COM port you must know how the PC hardware is configured. In this utility you must select the COM Port number (PCDBA supports COM 1 or 2 only) and the baud rate that will be used for the connection. At default PCDBA is setup to use COM Port 1 at 9600 bps. (9600 bps matches the default baud rate set for the DX80 CPM – PC-DBA Port.) While using a modem connection, it is best to set the COM port baud rate at 2400 bps since this is the speed of the DX-80 optional modem; setting this speed can expedite the modem negotiation process since compression link choices will not be attempted.
System Maintenance Maintaining the Comdial DX-80 digital telephone system is a combination of customer database changes, facilities and apparatus moves, adds and changes. These requirements are accomplished by practicing the techniques, illustrations and step-by-step instructions listed in the previous sections of this manual. When properly installed, the Comdial DX-80 is relatively maintenance-free. From time to time the digital telephone instruments may become dirty or dusty and require cleaning. We suggest the use of a clean, dry cotton (or other soft, absorbent) cloth to wipe the instrument clean. The use of chemicals to clean the telephone plastics is NOT recommended since some chemicals can cause permanent damage to the telephone finish. If deep soiling conditions exist, many specialized telephone cleaning solutions will provide satisfactory results. When trying any cleaner for the first time, apply the cleaner to a small sample area on the underside of the instrument. If the expected results are achieved, proceed with cleaning the remainder of the telephone.
Connecting a Serial Cable for SMDR SMDR (Station Message Detail Recording) can be output from the DX-80 system for use with serial printers of collection in call accounting devices. Connection of the SMDR device to the DX-80 is accomplished through the serial data port on the CPM labeled “SMDR.” Connection to serial printers may require customization of the serial cable used to make the connection. CPM“SMDR” serial port connector (straight- (Dedicated means that this AC outlet has no other equipment connected on this circuit breaker. Whenever a call accounting system (third-party device) is deployed, connection is often no more complicated than using a straight-through, 9-pin, female to male, serial cable. (Use Radio Shack model 26117B for good results.) Connection to the PC/call accounting system is made via an available 9-pin serial port connector that is designated as COM1 or COM2 in the PC configuration. Once the cable is linked between the collection device and the DX-80 CPM-SMDR port, the collection device must be programmed for compatible link protocol (baud rate). At default the SMDR port baud rate is set at 9600 bps.
Assigning a Password to the Extension All extensions of the DX-80 system have an associated user password. Passwords are required to use Phone Lock, Call Forward Remote, and Attendant features. Note: Extension passwords can be changed at the extension only by using the Phone Lock feature. Passwords can be from four to eight characters in length. You may want to program the overall system password length before programming individual extension passwords. See Section 4.4, Setting User Password Lengths, Setting Passwords for System Directory Numbers 101, 102, and 108 for more details. Changes to the length of the user password affect existing passwords—the system adds or subtracts one default character to the end of the password. That is, if you extend the length of the password, the system increases all passwords by adding a 0 in the right-most position. If you reduce the length of the password, the system truncates all passwords by one character in the right-most position.
The system prompts “Save Current Setting?” Press Y to save your changes. 9. The system then prompts “File Exists, Override?” Press Y to continue with the save operation. 10. Press Esc to return to the Uniform Call Distribution: Parameter Processing: Hunt Group 24 menu. Press Esc three times more to return to the Database Programming menu. 11. Next, program the voice mail hunt group. Highlight Voice Mail Table, and press Enter. Choose the tenant group you want to program, and press Enter. The system displays the Extension Application—Voice Mail Table: Tenant x menu.
You can add one AAM to the KSU1. The AA Module adds automated attendant functionality to the DX-80 system with 10 integrated announcements. The AAM does not provide voice mail functions. For details on how to program the AAM and its announcements, refer to the DX-80 Technical Manual, Volume II, Programming. Install the AAM onto designated connectors located on the CPM. To install the AAM perform the following steps. 1. Be sure that the entire system is turned off. 2. Remove the KSU cover (four screws at each corner). 3. Connect a static discharge wrist strap to a suitable earth ground. Be sure that the strap is touching bare skin.
Programming Third Party VM, Analog Ports You can connect the DX-80 system to a third-party voice mail system using spare analog ports. Doing so occupies these ports and therefore reduces the number of system ports that you can use for the telephones, FAX machines, modems, etc. Comdial recommends using the DX-80 DX-SO voice mail system, because it is a digital integration and therefore does not occupy valuable analog port space of the DX-80 system. For further details, see Section 9.2, Programming Optional Internal VM, Digital. Using voice mail greatly enhances the use of the DX-80 system. Features accessible when voice mail is installed vary depending upon the third-party product connected. Features that the DX-80 system accommodates include the following. • Automated Attendant • Extension unique voice mailboxes • Call Forward to extension voice mailboxes • Answering Machine Emulation • UCD Queue Announcements • Menu Routing • Voice Record • Automatic Voice Record • Specific CO Line Greetings on Automated Attendant The following conditions apply to analog voice mail. • Voice mail feature operation is limited only by the ancillary voice mail system. • When voice mail ports are used heavily (high call traffic), the system updates message indications notably slower than usual. • When VM messages are waiting, the system flashes the auxiliary lamp green.
Adding a COM4 You can add one COM4 to KSU1 and one COM4 to the KSU2. These modules expand the DX-80 system CO line interface capacity to a maximum of eight CO line ports in each KSU (16 total CO line ports when used in KSU 1 & 2). When adding a COM4 to either KSU, connect to the 408M/E via the COM4 module ribbon cable. This ribbon cable has the logical system address of SLOT 5 in both cabinet 1 (KSU1-408M) and cabinet 2 (KSU2-408E). COM4 modules are installed using four 1.5 cm brass-color standoffs. Always install the COM4 module beneath the CPM module (in KSU1) by first removing the CPM, installing the COM4, and then re-installing the CPM. This is required whenever you install the InSkin Voice Processor.
The 408M is equipped with a heartbeat LED that indicates processing activity on the PCB. (The 408M peripheral processor is operating when the heartbeat LED is flashing.) The KSU1 operation LED (located next to the power switch) is tied to the 408M heartbeat LED. Therefore, when the LED next to the power switch is flashing, the 408M is active. The KSU1-408M has three ribbon cables: • located at the upper right and oriented in a horizontal position, the J1 cable is used to interface a COM4 if required to expand the system CO line capacity. • located at the upper center and oriented in a vertical position, the J4 cable is used to interface the DX-80 CPM. • located at the upper center and oriented in a vertical position, the J5 cable connects to the standard APM4 installed in KSU1. Each CO line circuit incorporates over-voltage protection, ring detector, loop detector, loop/pulse-dial relay, current sink circuit, coupling/isolation transformer (impedance 600:600), hybrid circuit, CODEC & filter, polarity guard circuit and Radio Frequency noise filter. The fourth CO line port is equipped with CNG Fax Tone Detection circuitry. When programmed as a “FAX” line, this circuit will automatically engage the FAX Tone detector. If FAX tone is detected, the system routes the call to the analog port designated as the destination for fax calls.
CPM (Central Processor Module) The CPM module is equipped standard in KSU1. This board contains all circuitry required to control the fully equipped DX-80. The system uses the CPM to perform all digital voice switching and call processing data switching. The CPM has one ribbon cable connector for connection to the KSU1 408M and five (5) connector sockets for connection of the system built-in modem, voice processor, and second cabinet (KSU2). Since the CPM comes installed inside of KSU1 the CPM ribbon cable is already in place and connected to the KSU1-408M J5 socket. Assuming the orientation of the KSU1 cabinet is installed on the wall; the two horizontal connector sockets in the upper right corner of the CPM are for the MDM (Modem Module). The connector socket labeled “2nd Cabinet” is for connection to the KSU2-408E if that expansion is required. The remaining two connector sockets on the CPM, one at the left side, the other at the right side are for the voice processor solution. Note: The voice processor solution can be any of three possible choices: AAM, 7271C, or 7270C.

KSU1 COMPONENTS The CPM (Central Processor Module) is installed inside of KSU1 to the 408M ribbon cable J4 (also labeled “To CPM”). The CPM contains: • Two serial ports, • Two music ports, • One control contact (external paging/LBC/gate control), • One external page equipment interface connection, and • Socket connectors for the KSU2 (labeled “2nd Cabinet”), MDM, and VP modules (AAM, 7271C, and 7270C). The standard 408M (part of 7201) contains: • 4 CO line ports, • 1 power failure transfer port for the first CO line circuit, • 8 digital ports, • a ribbon cable (J1, also labeled “COM4”) for connection to the COM4 module (PN 7210) in KSU1, and • ribbon cable sockets (J2 and J3, also labeled “To DPM8/APM4”) for connection of DPM8 (PN 7220) or APM4 (PN 7230) modules. The standard APM4 (part of 7201) contains four analog device ports (installed on ribbon cable J5, also labeled “APM4”). 1.2.2 KSU2 COMPONENTS The standard 408E contains: • 4 CO line ports • 1 power failure transfer port for the first CO line circuit • 8 digital ports • a ribbon cable (J1, also labeled “COM4”) for connection to the COM4 module (PN 7210), • ribbon cable sockets (J2 and J3, also labeled “To DPM8/APM4”) for connection of DPM8 (PN 7220) or APM4 (PN 7230) modules, and • a shielded cable (J4) for connection to CPM socket JP2 (also labeled “2nd Cabinet”) in KSU1.
Memory Module installation or replacement
Note: The Memory Module has a proprietary formatting scheme — do not attempt to install a non-ESI drive.
Contact ESI for a replacement Memory Module, if needed.
Adding or replacing the Memory Module will require that the ESI-100 be taken out of service.
All of the ESI-100’s configuration data and customer recordings are stored in the Memory Module.
Replacing it, therefore, requires re-programming and re-recording, unless you have previously performed a backup
using ESI System Programmer software. (Prompts stay intact, however.)
Note: Be sure to observe all proper procedures regarding the prevention of electrostatic discharge (ESD) when
performing the following procedures; otherwise, circuit boards may suffer damage.

System Numbering to set the system numbering plan. The numbering plan assigns the first and second digits dialed and affects the digits an extension user must dial to access other extensions and features, such as service codes and trunk codes. If the default numbering plan does not meet the site requirements, use this program to tailor the system numbering to the site. Caution! Improperly programming this option can adversely affect system operation. Make sure you thoroughly understand the default numbering plan before proceeding. If you must change the standard numbering, use the chart for Table 2-1 System Numbering Default Settings on page 2-57 to keep careful and accurate records of your changes. Before changing your numbering plan, use PC Pro to make a backup copy of your system data. Changing the numbering plan consists of three steps: Step 1 : Enter the digit (s) you want to change You can make either single or two digit entries. In the Dialed Number column in the Table 2-1 System Numbering Default Settings on page 2-57, the nX rows (e.g., 1X) are for single digit codes. The remaining rows (e.g., 11, 12, etc.) are for two digit codes. • Entering a single digit affects all the Dialed Number entries beginning with that digit. For example, entering 6 affects all number plan entries beginning with 6. The entries you make in step 2 and step 3 below affect the entire range of numbers beginning with 6. (For example, if you enter 3 in step 2 the entries affected are 600 ~ 699. If you enter 4 in step 2 below, the entries affected are 6000 ~ 6999.) • Entering two digits lets you define codes based on the first two digits a user dials. For example, entering 60 allows you to define the function of all codes beginning with 60. In the default program, only * and # use 2-digit codes. All the other codes are single digit. If you enter a two digit code between 0 and 9, be sure to make separate entries for all the other two digit codes within the range as well. This is because in the default program all the two digit codes between 0 and 9 are undefined.
ACD department programming ACD departments can be programmed to route calls based on several optional parameters. Each ACD station can be logged onto as many as two ACD departments at the same time. Also, each ACD station can be a member of up to 20 ACD departments (i.e., up to 20 log-on keys may be assigned to each ACD station.) Each ACD agent must have a Digital Feature Phone1, IP Feature Phone II, Digital Cordless Handset, or VIP Softphone. Agent log-on keys will be automatically assigned to the lower left programmable feature keys for the stations listed in ACD departments (with wrap keys automatically assigned above them; see “Feature keys,” page G.37). Note: Line keys can’t be used to answer calls ringing Attend departments set in the live-ring list (in Functions 211, 2121, and 2131). ACD overflow Incoming calls that are holding (queued) for an available agent can be automatically forwarded to a new destination if ACD overflow is assigned. ACD overflow can be initiated by exceeding a maximum number of queued calls or by an individual exit timer set for each ACD department. If ACD overflow parameters aren’t assigned, the default action will be to overflow calls based on the system default ACD exit timer only. ACD overflow parameters are: • Queue exit threshold — If the number of calls in queue matches a predetermined queue exit threshold, all subsequent calls to that ACD department will immediately follow that department’s call-forward destination. • ACD exit timer — When a call has been held in queue for a predetermined duration specified for that ACD department, the call will follow the department call-forward destination. If the department’s ACD exit timer isn’t assigned, the system-wide default (for the current operation) will be used. ACD agent priority ACD agents who are simultaneously logged into two departments can have calls to one department take precedence over the other department’s calls. When the ACD station is assigned to each ACD department, the “baseline” priority is set for calls that are directed to that station from that department. ACD call escalation (priority override) An incoming call that has been in an ACD department queue the longest can be forced to ring at the next available agent, regardless of the priority setting of that agent’s station department log-in. A timer that’s set in ACD department programming (see page G.27) triggers this ACD escalation.
Network Keep Alive Setup to set the interval and retry count of the AspireNet networking keep alive message. The keep alive is used for ISDN and IP networking. The keep alive message is automatically responded to by the destination system, if the response is not received the retry count will start. If a response is not received within the number of retries, the networking link will be taken out of service. When the link is taken out of service: • Any calls that are in progress will be released. • Park Hold orbits will be released. • No further Park Hold information will be sent until the link is active. The link will automatically become active when the next keep alive response is received.
SIP Server Information Setup to define the SIP Proxy setup for outbound/ inbound. The 10-29 commands are not used in non-registration mode.If entries are made in Program 10-29-xx for a SIP Server and the SIP Server is then removed or not used, the entries in Program 10-29-xx must be set back to their default settings. Even if 10-29-01 is set to 0 (off), the system still checks the settings in the remaining 10-29 programs.
Daylight Savings Setup to set the options for daylight savings. As the telephone system is used globally, these settings define when the system should automatically adjust for daylight savings as it applies to the region in which the system is installed
Pre-Ringing Setup to enable or disable pre-ringing for trunk calls. This sets how a trunk initially rings a telephone. With pre-ringing, a burst of ringing occurs as soon as the trunk LED flashes. The call then continues ringing with the normal ring cadence cycle. Without pre-ringing, the call starts ringing only when the normal ring cadence cycle occurs. This may cause a ring delay, depending on when call detection occurs in reference to the ring cycle.
To enter programming mode : 1. Go to any working display telephone.In a newly installed system, use extension (port 1). 2. Do not lift the handset. 3. Press Speaker. 4. # * # *. 5. Dial the system password + Hold. Refer to the following table for the default system passwords. To change the passwords,
T1/PRI For T1 or PRI applications (only PRI on the ESI-50; it doesn’t support T1), an ESI Communications Server can use a compatible digital line card (DLC)1: • ESI-1000, ESI-600, ESI-200, ESI-100 — DLC and DLC12, each for either T1 or PRI. • ESI-50 — DLC82 for only PRI. Depending on how you configure it, each supports either (a.) a single T1 circuit at 24 DS0 channels or (b.) a PRI circuit supporting 23 “B” (bearer) channels and one “D” (data link) channel. The DLC12 and DLC82 each also support 12 digital stations. The T1 or PRI line is connected via the last two pairs of the industry-standard 50-pin amphenol cable connector on the front of the DLC. Each ESI Communications Server has a different maximum number of system-wide DLCs (see “Port card options,” page A.4). Partial T1 or PRI applications are supported through line programming. Each DLC has built-in CSU functionality. The integrated CSU can be enabled or disabled via system programming2. The following functionality is provided: line, payload, DTE and none (normal operation) loopback modes with the ability to respond back controlled via system programming; alarm conditions, and both ANSI T1.403 and TR 54016 performance messages for ESF only. Important: On the ESI-50, the DLC82 may be installed in only slot 2. If you’re installing more than one T1 or PRI, the DLC in the lowest number slot will synchronize (“slave”) the system with the public network. The system will synchronize to only one clock source. Therefore, ESI strongly recommends that the first DLC in the system be connected to the T1 or PRI that’s connected either to the local CO or the nationwide long-distance provider, either of which typically will provide veryhigh-accuracy clocking (Strata 3). The DLC doesn’t provide master or sub-master clocking for privatenetwork T1 spans.
The ESI Communications Server supports the 48-Key IP Feature Phone II, ESI IP Cordless Handsets, VIP Softphone, and SIP phones. (See “System capacities,” page B.1, for the maximum number of IP phones that your specific ESI Communications Server will support.) The ESI-50 has a built-in IVC12. It can support up to 12 IP channels, which can be a combination of local IP, remote IP, and Esi-Link channels. The channels are activated in blocks of four for local IP, singles for remote IP, and four or twelve for Esi-Link. Here is an example of some possible ESI-50 IVC12 channel combinations: • 12 all Esi-Link. • 12 all local IP. • Eight Esi-Link, four local IP. • Four Esi-Link, four local IP, four remote IP. When two or more Intelligent VoIP Cards (IVCs)1 and the necessary licensing are installed in an ESI Communications Server, the first IVC (lowest-numbered slot) will be designated as the primary IVC, which acts as a “go-between” to associate a station to its IVC. To each IVC, the system automatically allocates 24 sequential extension numbers, as defined in the dial plan selected in Function 169.2 Therefore, the primary IVC must be connected to the same network as all of the other IVC station cards. If an IVC supports 12 IP stations, only the first 12 extension numbers can be assigned to IP stations. Programming IP stations is similar to programming digital stations, except that additional, IP networking parameters are required for the former. There are three ways IP networking parameters can be assigned to IP stations in an ESI Communications Server: • Via Function 31, as described in the following pages. • Using ESI System Programmer. • Via “setup mode” at an ESI IP Feature Phone II.
Centrex/PBX access code If the system is to be used behind Centrex or another PBX, you must list the dial access code used to gain access to a CO line from Centrex or the PBX, so that toll restriction can ignore the access code digit(s). Users must dial the access code after accessing a line by either: (a.) Dialing 9, 8, 71, 72, 73, 74, 75, or 76. or (b.) Pressing a line key (if programmed). The access code can be one or two digits — e. g., 9, 81, etc. — and must be programmed for each line group. Default: 0. Note: You must set the flash duration in Function 151 (page E.3) for the requirements of the host switch. Function 222: Toll restriction exception tables The system’s toll restriction is based on outbound calls being defined as either toll calls (i.e., calls in the deny table) or non-toll calls (calls in the allow table). Four tables exist for this purpose: 1. Allow exception table (programmable). Up to 100 entries; no entry can exceed 26 digits. Default: No entries. 2. Deny exception table (programmable). Up to 100 entries; no entry can exceed 26 digits. Default: No entries. A number listed in the allow exception table — e.g., a branch office or vendor’s location — will be allowed to all stations, regardless of how they’re set in Function 32 (see page G.19). Conversely, a number listed in the deny exception table (e.g., a “1-900” number) will be denied to all stations. 3. Fixed allow table (not programmable). Default: 1800, 1888, 1877, 1866, 1855, 1844, 1833 and 1822. 4. Fixed deny table (not programmable). Default: 976, 1976, 1xxx976, 900, 1900, 1xxx900, 555, 1555, 1xxx555, 0, 10, 411, 1411 and 11+-digit restriction. In extension feature authorization (Function 321; see page G.19), each extension is set to be toll-restricted one of two ways: TOLL CALLS = Y (yes) or TOLL CALLS = N (no).
