Linked stations

Linked-Pair Station Description A station can be logically linked to a primary station so that the two stations function  as a single station.  When linked,  the two stations effectively act as  a single  station with  the station attributes of  the primary  station.    The status of one station is reflected in  the status of  the other and features activated at one are active at the other.    All  internal or external calls to a linked pair station will ring both stations. All features available to the primary station are available  and controllable by the  secondary station, one  station  may activate Call Forward  and the other may cancel the  forward.    The displays of  the linked stations will  display the  status of  the linked  pair.    If one  of  the linked stations is  busy, the LCD of the other station  will display “IN USE AT  LINK STA”.    When a linked  station is busy, the other idle  linked  station will not  receive ring for CO lines, transferred ring or intercom calls. Consideration   A station can be linked  with only one station.    Any combination of DKTs and SLTs may be assigned  as Linked pairs.   A DSS Console, Door Phone Box  or Port Blocked Station may not  be assigned  as  a linked pair  station.   Linked pair  stations are  treated as having a single station number for all features including LCD displays, station programming,  ADMIN access, ACD statistics, SMDR, etc.   Intercom calls to the Linked stations always signal in the Tone ring mode and cannot be changed using the Forced Hands-free feature.   The station attributes of  the secondary station  will follow attributes of the primary  station, i.e. Day/Night COS, CO Warning Tone, CO Auto Hold, CO Call Drop, DID Call Waiting, Speed Access, Alarm, VMIB Access, DND, FWD,  Paging, CO Access, CO Ring, etc.   An Attendant station  can  be linked with another  station but, the linked station cannot  use attendant features (refer  to Ref. D).   Calls can be  placed or transferred between the stations of  a  Linked pair  using the primary station number.
