Building a PCA
Personal Call Assistant - PCA
Calls to a DN automatically, and simultaneously, call a second (mobile) telephone. The call can be answered on either device. Personal Call Assistant (PCA) requires package 398.
Example: 2222 calls 3333, which is configured with PCA. The PCA extends the call to a second DN, and the call rings on 3333 and 555-4444 simultaneously. The first to answer assumes control, and the other set stops ringing. If the call is not answered, any redirection treatment on either set is invoked (voice-mail).
Note: PCA passes the originator's Calling Line Identification (CLID) to both called party's. The PTT must allow this!
LD 15 - Enable PCA at the Customer Level
|TYPE||FTR_DATA||Features and Options Data Block.|
|PCA||ON||Enable Personal Call Assistant.|
LD 11 - Build a PCA by entering the following:
|REQ||NEW||New... (or CHG to edit)|
|TYPE||PCA||Personal Call Assistant|
|TN||l s c u||PCA's are built on virtual superloops (LD 97)|
|SCPW||XX||Station Control Password. Not prompted if SCPL = 0 (LD 15).|
|TGAR||XX||Assign an NCOS and TGAR to allow the external call|
|KEY||0 SCR XXXX||Users desk phone DN. Must not be MARPed to this TN|
|KEY||1 HOT P X YYY||X length, YYY number, including access code, of the associated device.|
Optionally, end the number with # (end of string) to speed up out-dialing.
LD 57 - Configure the Flexible Feature Codes:
|REQ||CHG||Change FFCs, or PRT.|
|TYPE||FFC||Feature Flexible Code.|
|FFCT||(NO) YES||Flexible Feature Confirmation Tone.|
|CODE||PCAA||Code to activate PCA or change the HOT P DN.|
|CODE||PCAD||Code to deactivate PCA.|
|CODE||PCAV||Code to verify the status of PCA.|
Use the three Flexible Feature Codes (FFC) to activate, deactivate, or change the target DN on a PCA from the set.
- To activate or change PCA, enter the PCAA FFC.
- To deactivate PCA, enter the PCAD FFC.
- To verify the current status of PCA, enter the PCAV FFC.
Enter the prime DN of the terminal, followed by the Station Control Password (SCPW), and #. Listen for a confirmation tone.
This tone indicates that the password and extension match and the procedure was successful. If you hear a fast busy tone, the procedure failed and you must hang up and try again. The confirmation tone is provided only when FFCT = YES in LD 57.
