Distinctive Ringing allows the installer or keyset extension user to customize keyset ringing. This permits the user to determine the type of call just by listening to their keyset ring. Distinctive Ringing provides:
Distinctive Ring Configuration at Each Keyset
A keyset user can follow intuitive soft key menus to set up distinctive ringing for their phone. Their phone will even play back the new ring tones as the distinctive rings are being set up.
Line Override (Distinctive Ringing by Line and Ringing Mode)
Each line can have its own distinctive ringing for each ring mode (day, night, or delay). This allows a keyset user, for example, to easily differentiate between new ringing calls and calls that are ringing their phone after a delay.
Extension Ring Override
Each keyset extension can additionally override a line’s distinctive ringing with the extension’s own unique settings. Extension Ring Override helps identify ringing phones in large, open work areas. (This is a default ring set that has already been saved into system programming.)
Key Ring Override
A keyset extension can set up unique ringing for each of its Call Coverage, Group Call Pickup, and line keys. If a user needs to know what type of call is ringing their phone, Key Ring Override will help.
Unique Ringing for UCD Groups and Ring Groups
UCD Groups and Ring Groups can have their own distinctive rings. This allows a user to tell the difference between Intercom calls ringing their phone and UCD or Ring Group Calls.
This means that Line Override will replace the default ringing assigned by the system. Extension Ring Override will in turn replace ringing set by Line Override. Finally, Key Ring Override will replace ringing set by Extension Override or ringing set by Line Override.
The Ring Types determine how different types of calls rings extensions. Each Ring Type sounds unique because it uses one of the 10 available ring tones. The first four Ring Types are assigned by default (see the table below). The last two (B and C) are unassigned by default but you can assign on your phone using Extension Override and Key Ring Override.
|The Ring Types|
|Ring Type||Call Type|
|Group||Ring Group and UCD Group ringing|
|Ring “A”||Type A ringing
|Ring “B”||Type B ringing
|Ring “C”||Type C ringing
