    Configure UADM2 Software System Parameters Parameter Description (continued) Fixed Length User IDs The fixed length of a User ID is based on its first digit. Maximum digits GVPH expects when a caller dials a User ID beginning with zero. There is only one User ID mailbox that can have zero as its first digit, and that is User ID 0.
  • Page 42 Configure UADM2 Software System Parameters Parameter Description (continued) Maximum digits GVPH expects when a caller dials a User ID beginning with five. When changing this value, make certain that it is still possible to log in and send messages to all existing User ID mailboxes that begin with this digit. For example, if there are five digit User ID mailboxes that begin with this digit, then you should not fixed_len5 set the value of this parameter less than five.

    Configure UADM2 Software SMDI Integration SMDI Integration GVPH enables Simplified Message Desk Interface (SMDI) protocol to provide backplane integration with Strata CIX40. SMDI is the most efficient way of integrating GVPH with a telephone system. SMDI is the only integration available for use with the GVPH and cannot be Important! changed.
  • Page 44 Configure UADM2 Software SMDI Integration Table 2-3 SMDI Parameters Parameter Description Some SMDI installations use logical terminal numbers that do not begin with 1 (for example, if it uses the extension or physical number to define the terminal). In these situations, you must define the extension number where port 1 is connected.
  • Page 45: Test Smdi

    Configure UADM2 Software SMDI Integration Test SMDI After the SMDI feature has been enabled in GVPH and the link has been established with the backplane, the SMDI link can be tested. Initial testing can be done by making test calls into GVPH. Program a User ID with default options.

  • Page 103: Chapter 5 - Token Programming

    Token Programming Strata CIX40 Voice Processing System’s Token Programming Language consists of commands, or tokens, that instruct voice processing what actions to perform. The tokens that are generally used are simple and perform standard expected actions such as dialing an extension.
  • Page 104: Singular Tokens

    Token Programming Singular Tokens Singular Tokens Singular Tokens are single character commands that perform a single action that cannot be modified. For example, the token performs the action of playing DTMF 1. Table 5-1 Singular Tokens Token Syntax Description Suppress normal process—prevents voice processing from normally processing an Extension or Method field.
  • Page 105 Token Programming Singular Tokens Table 5-1 Singular Tokens (continued) Token Syntax Description Return to transferring User ID if Extension field number busy—if entered after a number in the Extension field, performs a partially supervised transfer. If ringing is returned, the system hangs up for a blind transfer. If busy is returned, the voice processing retrieves the call to be processed by the transferring User ID.
  • Page 106: Replaced Or Variable Tokens

    Token Programming Replaced or Variable Tokens Replaced or Variable Tokens Replaced or Variable Tokens are specified with a preceding sign and cause voice processing to replace the token given with the value associated with the token. For example, The token would be replaced with the current number of messages for the current User ID being accessed.

  • Page 109: Defined Tokens

    Token Programming Defined Tokens Defined Tokens Defined Tokens are expressed with left and right parentheses surrounding one or more definitions that determine how the token should work. For example, the Goto token only G( ) takes one definition. Voice processing immediately “goes to” the User ID specified for processing.
  • Page 110 Token Programming Defined Tokens Table 5-3 Defined Tokens (continued) Token Description Examples I("111",<,"222",1000) Immediately continues processing at User ID 1000. I("111",>,"222",1000) Does not continue processing at User ID 1000 and instead continues with the next token. I("%S1",=,"1234",2000) Continues processing at User ID 2000 only if %S1 has the value 1234. I("%S1",=,"SPANISH",2000) Continues processing at User ID 2000 only if %S1 = SPANISH.

Example @KM KN( ) NOT SUPPORTED Creates a recording—if the destination is an existing User ID, voice processing inserts the recording into that mailbox as a new message.
  • Page 113 Token Programming Defined Tokens Table 5-3 Defined Tokens (continued) Token Description Audiotex menu—the M( ) token enables you to specify fast single-digit entry for audiotex menu selections. While voice processing processes this token, it plays (or says) the specified greeting while waiting for a single DTMF digit to be pressed by the caller.
  • Page 114 Token Programming Defined Tokens Table 5-3 Defined Tokens (continued) Token Description N( ) Examples (continued) Suppose an ASCII file contains a listing of dealers, available parts, and orders on those parts. You could use the R( ) token to obtain information about how many parts the dealer wants to order and then use the N( ) token to update the database.
  • Page 115 Token Programming Defined Tokens Table 5-3 Defined Tokens (continued) Token Description Play—the P( ) token enables you to communicate information in a variety of ways to a caller or to a user when used in a Notify record’s Method field. While voice processing is playing, the skip (*, #) and volume (8, 0) keys on the telephone work.
  • Page 116 Token Programming Defined Tokens Table 5-3 Defined Tokens (continued) Token Description Question and answer (Voice Forms)—the Q( ) token enables you to ask a caller a series of questions and store all the caller’s responses as a single message or multiple messages in the current User ID. Record each question as a greeting.
  • Page 117 Token Programming Defined Tokens Table 5-3 Defined Tokens (continued) Token Description Read DTMF from a caller—the R( ) token enables you to obtain caller information while prompting the caller with the specified recorded greeting. The token plays the greeting specified for the current User ID and enables the caller to make DTMF entry which is stored in the specified %S variable.
  • Page 118 Token Programming Defined Tokens Table 5-3 Defined Tokens (continued) Token Description Search for value—the V( ) token searches the specified file, in the specified field, for the value given by item. If voice processing finds the value, it stores the contents of the second field into variable %Sn.
  • Page 119 Token Programming Defined Tokens Table 5-3 Defined Tokens (continued) Token Description Wait (pause) for event—general wait token that enables voice processing to wait for confirmation of specific events. It is useful for confirming dial tone and for notification to confirm that the appropriate answer has occurred.
