Form 4a -- Digital Configuration for the 1608 IP Set

The digital display will show the following:

  • Normal mode: this displays any information regarding the incoming/outgoing call. The OUS links will provide the name/description associated with any phone on any of the seven switches throughout our system. Calls made through QWEST trucks will provide subscriber information (providing that information is not blocked).
  • Inspect mode: this displays information about the next incoming call while you are on the current call. This information may tell you enough to either continue with the current call (and have the incoming call follow the Call Coverage Path to Voice Mail) or tell your current call that you will call them back and go directly to the incoming call. This feature is very nice for someone who is expecting important calls and needs to connect immediately.
  • Date/Time: Displays the current date and time directly from the switch.
  • Timer: You now have your very own egg time built into the set!

Buttons common to most digital sets include:

  • Hold Button -- places a line on "hold"
  • Transfer Button -- assists in the connection link of transferring a call (either incoming or outgoing) to another line and dropping the user out of the link.
  • Conference Button -- assists in the connecting link of a user with a call (either incoming or outgoing) to another line and maintaining the link between all three parties.
  • Drop Button -- associated with ACD features, ignore it.
  • Message Waiting Light for the primary line.

Messages from Displays and their meanings:

a= Information on current call. May be from any OUS switch or passed through from QWEST trunk lines.
b= The call you are receiving is a coverage call from an extension that is either busy or in use.
C= The call you are receiving is a coverage call from an extension that has Permanent Send All Calls coverage.
Cover The extension you called is being answered either through coverage or by call pick up (i.e. you will be answered by someone or Voice Mail rather than the extension you originally called).

f= The call you are receiving is to an extension that is forwarded to you.
Forward The extension you called is forwarded somewhere else.
Hunt The extension you called is busy and your call is hunting to the next available line.
p= The call you are receiving is being answered using "call pick up".
