SIE Key for ACD Groups
Any Multiline Terminal can have SIE keys for ACD Groups. When a call comes into a covered ACD Group, the SIE key will ring immediately, ring after a delay or just flash (depending on system programming and user-set options). The Multiline Terminal user can answer the call by just lifting the handset and pressing the SIE key. ACD SIE keys help maximize ACD service during high traffic periods or when agents are unavailable.
The covering extension does not have to be a member of the ACD Group. In addition, an extension can have SIE keys for as many ACD Groups as it has available programmable keys.
An ACD Group SIE key also allows for one-button Transfer to an ACD Group.
SIE Key for ACD Groups
ACD offers extensive overflow options for each ACD Group. For example, a caller ringing in when all agents are unavailable can hear an initial announcement, called the 1st Announcement. This announcement can be a general greeting.
1st Announcement: Thank you for calling. All of our agents are currently busy helping other customers. Please stay on the line and we will help you shortly.
If the caller continues to wait, you can have them hear another announcement, called the 2nd Announcement.
2nd Announcement: Your business is important to us. Your call will be automatically answered by the first available agent. Please stay on the line.
If all the ACD Group's agents still are unavailable, the call can automatically overflow to another ACD Group, offsite via a speed dial bin, Ring Group, or the Voice Mail. If all agents in the overflow ACD Group are busy, Lookback Routing automatically ensures that the waiting call will ring into the first agent in either group that becomes free.
You can assign an ACD Group with any combination of 1st Announcement, 2nd Announcement and overflow method. You can have, for example, a Technical Service group that plays only the 2nd Announcement to callers and then immediately overflows to Voice Mail. At the same time, you can have a Customer Service group that plays both announcements and does not overflow.
The following overflow options are available:
No Overflow (Mode 0)
A call waits in queue indefinitely for an available agent without an announcement. If no agents are logged in when the call rings the group, the caller hears ringback until they hang up or an agent logs in.
Overflow with No Announcement (Mode 1)
If all agents are unavailable, a call to the ACD Group will overflow (i.e., reroute) to another ACD Group, offsite via a speed dial bin, Ring Group, or the Voice Mail after a programmed interval. The caller does not hear any messages as the call is rero

WHAT IS ACD?
1.1 Equitable Distribution of Calls Among Agents
Automatic Call Distribution (ACD) uniformly distributes calls among member agents of a programmed ACD Group. When a call rings into an ACD Group, the system automatically routes the call to the agent that has been idle the longest. Automatic Call Distribution is much more sophisticated and comprehensive than Department Calling and other group services – it can accurately judge the work load at each agent and distribute calls accordingly. Automatic Call Distribution operation is further enhanced by:
ACD Announcements (which play to incoming callers) ACD Call Queuing ACD Overflow
Agent Log In and Log Out Services Flexible Time Schedules
Setting Up ACD for the First Time
When setting up ACD for the first time, perform the following procedures in the sequence listed below.
1. Arrange Extensions into ACD Groups. 2.Set up Work Schedules and Work Periods. 3.Assign Extension to ACD Groups for each Work Period.
4. Arrange Trunks into incoming Ring Groups.
5. Determine Trunk Work Schedules. 6.Assign incoming Ring Groups to ACD Groups.
SECTION 1 ARRANGE EXTENSIONS INTO ACD GROUPS
Your first step in setting up ACD is to find out how many ACD Groups you need and which extensions should be in each group. Use the Sample ACD Group Worksheet on page 2-3 to arrange extensions into ACD Groups.
ACD requires that the CPU-B1 have the ACD license.
There are 2 ACD Groups, 16 ACD Agents Max per group, and 36 Trunks.
1.Select the ACD Group Number.
The system allows up to 2 ACD Groups. You can have up to 16 ACD agents per group. You can put any agent in any group. In addition, an agent can be logged into only one group at a time, but a SIE key can be programmed for other groups. This allows, for example, a Technical Service representation to answer Customer Service calls at lunch time when many of the Customer Service reps are unavailable

Automatic Call Distribution (ACD) uniformly distributes calls among agents of a programmed ACD Group. When a call rings into an ACD Group, the system automatically routes the call to the agent that has been idle the longest. Automatic Call Distribution is much more sophisticated and comprehensive than Department Calling and other group services – it can accurately judge the work load at each A agent and distribute calls accordingly. The system allows up to 2 ACD Groups and 16 ACD agents.
The ACD Master Number is the extension number of the whole group. Calls directly ringing or transferred to the ACD Master number enter the group and are routed accordingly. Although the master number can be any valid extension number, you should choose a number that is out of the normal extension range.

The WebPro software is installed on the Aspire NTCPU PCB - there is no separate software installation. This means that when the Aspire system software is updated, the WebPro software is updated as well.
Make sure the SW3 switch on the Aspire NTCPU (switch just above the serial port connector) is set to OFF (down).
The Aspire system (Program 10-21-02) and the Dial Up setting must be set to use the same baud rate (19200 by default).
Make sure the PC is connected to the serial or USB port on the Aspire NTCPU with a null modem (cross- over) cable. For LAN connections, use a straight-through cable if connected through a hub. If connected directly to the Aspire S/Aspire LAN connector, use a cross-connect cable.
The WebPro software provides a Help system if you experience difﬁculty in using the program. Simply press the ‘F1’ key.
1.Make sure the required cable (USB, serial, LAN) is connected from the PC to the Aspire S/Aspire system. 2.When using a LAN connection, skip to Step 5.
When using a connection other than a LAN, you must first connect to the Aspire using the dial-up connection. If not already connected, click on START SETTINGS NETWORK CONNECTIONS select the dial up connection to be used to connect to the Aspire system.
3.In the window that appears, if the user name and password are acceptable, click CONNECT or DIAL depending on your connection type.
Only one person is allowed in programming mode at a time. An error message will be received if trying to log in while another user is already in programming mode.
4.If the PRE-DIAL TERMINAL SCREEN option was selected in the dial-up setting, when it appears, left click on the black area of that screen. Type AT and press ENTER. Once OK has been displayed, click on CONTINUE and wait for the computer to connect to the Aspire system.
If an OK does not appear on the screen, continue to type AT and then press enter until you get an OK on the screen.
5.Once the connection has been established, with either Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator installed, open the internet
6.Enter the IP address of the Aspire system (example: http://22.214.171.124). This address is selected based on the type of con- nection to the Aspire.
Serial Connection 126.96.36.199 Fixed - cannot be changed.
(For an Aspire S system with an ENTU PCB installed, the LAN IP address can also be used for this connection.)
USB Connection 188.8.131.52 Fixed - cannot be changed. ISDN Connection 184.108.40.206 Fixed - cannot be changed.
LAN (Ethernet) 172.16.0.10 This setting is defined in Program 10-12-01 and can be changed.
For information about how to program your telephone system for voicemail, please refer to your telephone system manual, or contact the manufacturer of your telephone system. Make sure you assign all the voicemail ports to a hunt group and that the type is set to voicemail (this will usually enable system integration).
Note: Whenever you see the phone icon call Amanda SOHO Flash.
1) Unpacking the System
Carefully unpack the Amanda SOHO Flash system from the box. Also unpack the power source for the unit and put it aside.
2) Mounting the System
Find a good place to mount the SOHO Flash unit on the wall near the telephone system. Carefully mount the system to the wall.
3) Connecting Ports
Connect four analog extensions from the telephone system to ports 1 through 4 on the Amanda SOHO Flash unit. Ports 1 through 4 are labeled lines 1-4.
Ports 1-4 are RJ11’s and each use only the center pair for each port (tip & ring / the green and red pair).
Note: Port 4 is the notification port. All message notification will be dialed this port. If you don’t have four analog ports available on your telephone system, make sure port 4 is one of the active ports. For example, if there are only 3 extensions available, connect ports 1, 2, and 4.
4) Powering the System On
The system does not have an on/off switch. Connecting power and removing power will turn the system on and off. Power the system on by connecting its power source to it. The system will take approximately 2 minutes to boot up.
5) Logging into a Mailbox
Amanda SOHO Flash is programmed using a touch-tone telephone. Mailbox 999 acts as the system administration mailbox, and is used to program Amanda. Mailbox 999 has a special administration mode that none of the other mailboxes have. To program Amanda SOHO Flash you’ll need to become familiar with the login process.
SIP trunks IP office Essential Edition - PARTNER® Version mode can support SIP trunks through its LAN connection. These are configured using IP Office Manager, they cannot be managed through phone based administration.
In order to support SIP trunks, the system must include the following resources:
· SIP Trunk Licenses
These licenses are used to configure the number of simultaneous SIP trunk calls supported, up to a maximum of
20. A IP Office Essential Edition - PARTNER® Version mode system supports 3 channels without licenses.
· Voice Compression Channels
These are required to convert between the audio compression methods used for IP telephony and those used for analog and digital trunks. Each IP500 Combination card, up to a maximum of 2 cards, installed in the system provides 10 voice compression channels for the system. One voice compression channel is used for each SIP call.
An Announcement Mailbox plays a recorded announcement to Automated Attendant callers without providing dialing options. The Announcement Mailbox is typically set up to provide information to callers and then route back to the Automated Attendant. See the following example:
• The Automated Attendant instructs the caller to dial a digit for company directions.
- Record this in the Instruction Menu message for the active Call Routing Mailbox. See Instruction Menu on page 2-122 for more information.
- Set the dialing options in the Dial ActionTable associated with the active Call Routing Mailbox. See Dial ActionTable on page 2-49 for more information.
• The caller dials the digit and listens to the recorded Announcement Mailbox message for directions.
• After playing the directions, the caller routes back to the Automated Attendant for additional dialing options.
- See the Hang Up on page 2-106 and Next Call Routing Mailbox on page 2-167 options in Programming below.
By default, there are 24 Announcement Mailboxes (Routing Mailboxes 9 ~ 32). However, you can assign any of the 32 Routing Mailboxes as an Announcement Mailbox.
The Next Call Routing Mailbox Options
The following Mailbox Routing charts show how an Announcement Mailbox handles Automated Atten- dant calls.
• The first chart explains what happens when the outside call is directly answered by the Announce- ment Mailbox. This happens when the AnswerTable uses an Announcement Mailbox for routing instead of a Call Routing Mailbox.
• The second chart explains what happens when the outside call is answered by a Call Routing Mail- box and then routed to the Announcement Mailbox. This can happen, for example, when a caller dials a digit to hear an announcement of company directions.
• See AnswerTable on page 2-14 for more set up information.
