To administer the voice ports, complete the following procedures in this section:

  1. Create a unique class of restriction.
  2. Create a unique class of service.
  3. Administer the first voice port station.
  4. Duplicate the first voice port for the remaining voice ports.
  5. Change the Extension, Name, and Port fields for each of the duplicated ports.

Use Worksheet A: Voice Port Stations on Host Switch and Worksheet B: Voice Port Extensions, Equipment Locations, and Names in Switch Integration Planning to complete the following procedures.

Create a Unique Class of Restriction

The class of restriction (COR) defines subscriber calling privileges. The COR specifies up to 95 different classes of call origination and termination privileges on the DEFINITY ECS. Create a unique COR for the INTUITY AUDIX system voice ports and hunt groups. Do not use a COR that is also used by any other extension, special-usage ports, or trunk groups.

To create the COR:

  1. Enter change cor COR number on the switch terminal.
  2. See Worksheet A: Voice Port Stations on Host Switch in Switch Integration Planning for the COR number used for the voice ports.

    The system displays the Class of Restriction screen.
     

    Note: The instructions in this section deal only with the fields you need to change for a INTUITY AUDIX system. Do not change the value in any other field unless you are instructed to do so. See the DEFINITY ECS R8 Administrator's Guide, 555-233-502, Issue 2, for more information about the COR screen.
