Private Line Service
PTT line appearances on Meridian phones - Equivalent to Mitels Direct Trunk Select.
Here is some background information, and a limited programming overview, on how to program a PTT line as a key appearance on a Nortel multi-line set. Nortel calls it PVN/PVR, Private Line Non-Ringing/Ringing).
- LD 16 - Add a Private Line trunk route - (TKTP=cot, PRIV=yes, ICOG=iao)
- LD 14 - Add Private Line trunks to the route (PRDN=xxxx)
- LD 11 - Add Private Line Service key (PVR/PVN=xxxx) to set(s).
When adding a trunk to a Private route (one with PRIV=YES), you will be prompted for Private Line DN (PRDN). This is a special DN which directly accesses the trunk from the set. Multiple trunks can be added to the same route, each one with a different PRDN.
When adding a Private Line Service key to a Digital set, use:
KEY xx PVR <PRDN for trunk>(ringing) or:
KEY xx PVN <PRDN for trunk>(non-ringing)
LD 11 - Example:
|TYPE:||aaaa||Telephone type, where: aaaa = 2016, 2616, etc.|
|TN:||l s c u||Terminal Number (loop shelf card unit -or- card unit)|
|KEY:||xx PVN yyy...y||Private Line non-ringing key (yyy...y is the same as for PRDN prompt in LD 14)|
|xx PVR yyy...y||Private Line ringing key (yyy...y is the same as for PRDN prompt in LD 14)|
For an Analog set: DN <PRDN for trunk>
- PVN/PVR should not be placed on Key 0 if Primary Directory Number (PDN) already exists.
- Key 7 cannot be used if the Feature Key "Program" resides in that position (Key 7).
- Call Forward on Private Lines is not forwarded to a second appearance of its own DN.
- A software PRDN is not meant to be dialed directly.
- Hunting does not apply to Private Line service.
- A hot line key cannot be to a PRDN.
