These capabilities provide features that are similar to typical Direct Station Selection/Busy Lamp Field (DSS/BLF)
modules but are not intended to be directly comperable to traditional DSS/BLF modules. The Cisco Unified IP Phone
Expansion Module 7916 is not an operator or attendant console. The primary function of this module is to provide the
Cisco Unified IP Phone 7962G, 7965G, and 7975G models with additional keys for features such as speed dial or
directory numbers. The illuminated buttons provide ease of line status, making the Cisco Unified IP Phone
Expansion Module 7916 an ideal call-coverage tool.
The two illuminated page buttons beneath the display of the Cisco Unified IP Phone Expansion Module 7916 allow
you to shift between the first and second pages of 12 buttons, providing access to all 24 keys, 12 at a time (Table 2).

When Cisco Unified IP Phone 7965G or 7975G models are in power-saving sleep or inactivity mode, the
Cisco Unified IP Phone Expansion Module 7916 is also in sleep or inactivity mode. In addition to the
Display button, any button on the Cisco Unified IP Phone Expansion Module 7916 that is pressed will
cause the displays to awaken. The inactivity period is configured by the system administrator.
