PROTON 206/308 V1 System Manual 11
Features and Facilities
Abbreviated Dialing
Whats this?
Frequently called numbers can be stored in the system. These numbers can be dialed using specific codes.
This is called Abbreviated dialing. It is also known as Memory Dialing.
This helps save time while dialing frequently used numbers.
An abbreviated number is dialed through its directory index.
The PROTON 206/308 offers two types of Abbreviated Dialing: Personal Abbreviated Dialing and Global
Abbreviated Dialing.
Each user is allocated memory space called personal memory to store 10 numbers of his own choice. This is
called Personal Abbreviated Dialing. These numbers are dialed out using access codes 800-809.
Besides personal memory, 90 numbers can be stored in a common memory space called global memory.
These numbers are dialed out using access codes 810-899. This is called Global Abbreviated Memory.
Personal Abbreviated Dialing
The numbers stored in the personal memory of a user are dialed out.
Each user can store up to 10 numbers of his choice in his personal memory.
User can change these numbers anytime from his station without consulting the System Administrator or the
System Engineer.
The location codes for Personal Abbreviated Dialing are 00-09. Hence the access codes are 800 to 809.
Personal Abbreviated Dialing is allowed to all the users.
The system checks Trunk Access for daytime/nighttime and Toll Control allowed list and denied list before
dialing the Personal Abbreviated number. Hence for Personal Abbreviated Dialing, Trunk Access for
daytime/nighttime, Toll Control allowed list and Toll Control denied list should be programmed properly.

How to program Personal Abbreviated Dialing?
In the above command
Directory Index is from 00 to 09.
Trunk is 1, 2, 3, 0 or 5 (Here 0 and 5 are interpreted as trunks from group 0 or group 5 and not trunk 0 and 5)
Number is the telephone number, which is to be abbreviated.
How to use Personal Abbreviated Dialing?
Example:
To program telephone number 0265-2630555 at directory index 00 with trunk access code 2, dial
18-00-2-02652630555.
Once this location is programmed with the number, dial 800 to call the number.
Global Abbreviated Dialing
The numbers stored in the global memory of the system are dialed out.
Global directory can be programmed either by the System Administrator or the System Engineer.
The global directory is common for all the users.
Maximum 90 numbers can be stored in the global directory. Location codes for global directory are from 10 to
99. Hence the access codes for global abbreviated dialing are 810 to 899.
Global Directory is divided into two parts i.e. Global Directory part 1 and Global Directory part 2.
A user can dial these numbers irrespective of his Toll Control. However these numbers can be dialed only if
the user is allowed this feature from Class of Service and it is given Trunk Access.
Telephone numbers of fire, police, branch offices or such other places can be stored in global directory part 1
and its access be given to all the users so that any user can access this facility.
Long distance numbers can be stored in global directory part 2 and its access be given to selected users.
In case of long distance numbers, complete numbers with preceding codes should be entered.
How to program?
Use following command to program a telephone number in Global Directory:
8-Directory Index-Trunk-Number-#/Flash
Where,
1 Lift handset. Dial tone
2 Dial 18-Directory Index-Trunk-Number-#/Flash. Confirmation tone
1 Lift the handset. Dial tone
2 Dial 8-Directory Index. Number dialed out

Allowed and Denied Lists
Whats this?
Allowed and Denied lists is a group of number strings. The PROTON 206/308 uses these lists to support two
different features viz. Toll Control and Dynamic Lock.
Association of Allowed and Denied lists with Toll Control:
When the number is dialed from a station, the PROTON 206/308 compares the dialed number string with the
number strings in allowed and denied lists.
Association of Allowed and Denied Lists with Dynamic Lock:
If the user locks the station and thereafter dials a number from his station, the PROTON 206/308 compares the
dialed number string with the number strings in allowed and denied lists for the locked status.
How it works?
Maximum 10 Allowed and Denied Lists (level) can be formed.
Each level accommodates 12 allowed strings and 12 denied strings.
Each number string can have maximum of 16 digits.
Number string can be a complete telephone number, area code or few initial digits of a telephone number.
An allowed-denied list (a level) should be assigned to each station depending upon the requirement.
Level Allowed String Denied String
0 Num0, Num1, Num2. Num11 Num0, Num1, Num2. Num11

Answering Calls
When your station rings, lift the handset. The ring stops and you get connected to the calling party. You may
start-talking immediately. The PROTON 206/308 offers a facility to identify the caller before answering the call. If
the caller is a station then the station rings as Trin......Trin.....Trin.... This is called single ring. If the caller is an
external caller the station on which the trunk call lands rings as Trin...Trin...........Trin...Trin... This is called double
ring. These two types of rings differentiate an internal caller and an external caller.

Auto Call Back
Whats this?
The PROTON 206/308 offers two types of Auto Call Back viz. Auto Call Back-On Busy and Auto Call Back-On
No Reply.
Auto Call Back-On Busy
Whats this?
Station user need not keep dialing busy station repeatedly.
Station user can request Auto Call Back by dialing 2 during busy tone.
When the requested station becomes free it rings. Simultaneously station that requested Auto Call Back also
starts ringing. Whosoever answers first gets ring-back tone, whereas other end keeps ringing. Once the ring
is answered, ring-back tone stops and speech is established.
Auto Call Back can also be requested on busy trunk.
To Set ACB-On Busy
If Auto Call Back ring is not answered within 30 seconds, it stops and Auto Call Back request gets cleared. This
is called Auto Call Back Ring Timer and is programmable.
To Cancel ACB-On Busy
1 Dial Number. Busy tone
2 Dial 2. Confirmation tone
1 Dial Number. Busy tone
2 Dial 102. Confirmation tone

Example:
Station 23 is busy. To enable Auto Call Back, dial 2 during busy tone. If you have wrongly dialed 23 and want to
cancel Auto Call Back request, dial 102 to cancel it.
Auto Call Back-On No Reply
Whats this?
Station user need not keep trying no-reply station repeatedly.
Station user can set ACB-No Reply.
When the station user for whom ACB request was made returns to his desk and picks up the handset the
station that requested ACB rings.
Both the stations come in speech when the station that requested ACB answers the call.
To Set ACB-on No reply
To Cancel Auto Call Back
How to program?
Please refer Class Of Service (COS) for details on how to allow Auto Call Back to a user.
Important Points:
Only one ACB-On Busy request is entertained at a time.
Only one ACB-On No Reply request is entertained at a time.
The last ACB request supersedes all other previous ACB requests.
ACB-On Busy and ACB-On No Reply can be used simultaneously.
Timer of Relevance:

Auto Redial
Whats this?
Many times when we make a call, we find that the called party is busy. Hence we have to try the same
number again and again to contact him. This is very frustrating and time-consuming. Auto Redial rescues us
from this sheer wastage of time. The system gives ring to the station user that requested Auto Redial, when
the call goes through.
The PROTON 206/308 offers two types of Auto Redial. Low priority Auto Redial and High priority Auto
Redial.
Generally the system should be programmed in such a manner that in low priority type the number of trials
made by the system is less (count) and the time gap between two trials (timer) is more whereas in high
priority type the number of trials is more and the time gap between two trials is less. This enables us to give
Auto Redial facility to senior officials as well as staff persons.

20 PROTON 206/308 V1 System Manual
If the system detects ring back tone, it gives ring on your station. When you lift the handset, you get
connected with the desired party.
The system uses the same trunk type you used to make a call. If you dialed the number using trunk access
code 5, the system takes one of the free trunks from this group for Auto Redial. If you tried out the number on
a selected trunk, the system uses that particular trunk only.
Auto Redial will suspend if there is any activity (ringing or dialing) on your station. It resumes as soon as your
station becomes free.
Auto Redial does not work in following cases:
If the trunk lines do not support standard tones. Frequency and timings are critical for auto redial to work.
Trunk condition is poor and various tones cannot be detected properly.
Called party lifts within 3 seconds after the ring starts on his phone.
Behind the PBX applications where Matrix trunks are connected to stations of some other PBX which do not
support standard tones.

Barge-In
Whats this?
When your message is urgent and you cannot wait for the called person to become free, you can land in his
conversation after intimating him.
While landing, you get music and the called person gets beeps of internal call waiting tone.
During the beeps, the called person can dial Flash-1 to answer your call. In this case the third party is put on
hold and gets music and hence cannot listen to your conversation.
If the called person does not dial Flash-1 then speech is automatically established after time = barge-in
timer.
Replace your handset once your talk is over. This will automatically restore his original speech with the held-
up party.
How to use it?
Example:
Station 23 is busy. To give a very urgent message to him, dial 33 on busy tone.
How to program?
Please refer Class Of Service (COS) for details on how to allow Barge-In to a station.
Timer of Relevance:
Barge-In Timer-Time after which the speech is established.
Command : 217-12-Timer
Default : 05 seconds
Valid Range : 01 to 99 seconds.
Important Points:
Barge-In can work only if the destination is in speech.
Barge-In works even when the destination is talking on the trunk line.
1 Lift handset. Dial tone
2 Dial Number. Busy tone
3 Dial 33. Music. The destination gets beeps.
4
The system connects you to the destination after
5 seconds. Start talking after the music stops.
PROTON 206/308 V1 System Manual 21
Barge-In can also be done by keeping one party in hold. Suppose a trunk call is to be transferred to a busy
station then you can keep the caller in hold mode and Barge-In the destination to inform him about his call.
This is most advantageous feature for the operator.
However, Barge-In will not work when the destination is in threeparty mode or in dialing state or ringing.
It will also not work if any station is having call privacy from Barge-In.

Behind the PBX Applications
Whats this?
Many times, small and medium range PBX systems are connected behind some bigger PBX systems. Such
applications are used mainly to expand the existing capacity of the big PBX already in use. Stations coming from
the big PBX are used as trunks of the small PBX. There could also be some PSTN trunks coming directly on the
smaller PBX. Such configurations are known as Behind the PBX application.
In such situations, it is not easy to implement toll control restrictions.
Consider a simple event
Station 21 of PBX B in the figure above is not given long distance dialing facility. It has access to all the trunks.
Now when he wants to use T2 or T3, which are directly coming from PSTN, he dials 0. He gets PSTN dial tone
and dials the number.
But when he does similar procedure on T1, he gets error tone. Because, in this case when station 21 grabs T1
by dialing a code, he gets dial tone of the PBX A. Now when he again dials 0 to grab PSTN dial tone, PBX
understands it to be a long distance call and since station 21 is not allowed long distance calls, the system
rejects dialing on trunk and gives error tone to station A.
Hence now if station 21 of PBX B is to be allowed external dialing through T1, he should be given long distance
dialing access. If this is done then station 21 may make long distance calls on T1, T2 and T3.
The PROTON 206/308 solves this problem by providing programmable PBX Expansion count for each trunk.
This count is the number of digits to be ignored before toll control check is begun. The PBX Expansion count is
same as the number of PBXs connected between the main PBX and the last subscriber.
In the figure shown, the PBX Expansion count of T1 should be kept 1 and for T2 and T3, it should be kept 0.
22 PROTON 206/308 V1 System Manual
CAUTION!
For all normal applications, keep this PBX Expansion count to 0 for all the trunks. Otherwise, outside dialing may
be hampered. The PROTON 206/308 supports PBX Expansion count for each trunk.
How to program?
Use following command to program PBX Expansion count for a trunk:
54-Trunk-PEC Count
Trunk is from 1 to 3.
PEC Count is from 0 to 9
By default, PEC for all the trunks is 0.
Example:
To program PEC=1 for trunk 1, dial 54-1-1.
Boss Ring
Whats this?
This feature helps the user to identify the caller. A person in the organization having higher hierarchy can be
assigned this feature. Whenever a person having access to Boss Ring calls any other person in the
organization, the called station rings differently. This helps the called party to identify the caller.
How to program?
Boss Ring is a programmable feature. It can be allowed or denied to a station user. This feature is associated
with feature Raid. Whenever a person having access to Raid makes a call the called station gets Boss Ring.
Please refer Class Of Service (COS) for more details.
Important Point:
Boss Ring is same as Alarm Ring.

Busy Hunting Group
Whats this?
In some applications, it is desirable that if the called station is busy, the call should ring on the near by station
instead of giving busy tone to the caller.
How to use it?
Desired stations can be programmed in one group. If the called station is busy then the call will be diverted to
next free station in the group.
How to program?
Use following command to program a station in a busy hunting group:
304-Station-Busy Hunting Group
Where,
Station is from 21 to 28
Busy Hunting Group is from 1 to 9
Use following command to program all stations in a busy hunting group:
304-*-Busy Hunting Group
PROTON 206/308 V1 System Manual 23
Where,
Busy Hunting Group is from 1 to 9
By default, all stations are in Busy hunting Group 0.
Example:
To program stations 202, 206 and 208 in hunting group 1.
304-202-1
304-206-1
304-208-1
With this program, on calling 202 if 202 is busy then the call will be diverted to 206 and if 206 is also busy then it
will be diverted to 208.
Important Points:
This facility may appear same as our feature Call Transfer-On Busy but they are different. If the said feature
is used then calls can only be transferred to any other single station and not to a group of stations. If this
facility is used then chaining of Call Transfer-on busy gets enabled i.e. the system hunts for free station in
the group you have programmed.
All stations can be programmed in one group.
9 such groups (from group 1 to group 9) can be programmed.
If any station is programmed with group value 0, that station will not be included in any group.
This feature is applicable for only internal calls and not for incoming calls.
Call Duration Control
Whats this?
Call Duration Control (CDC) helps the customer to restrict the duration of the calls whether, incoming or outgoing
external calls. This feature disconnects incoming or outgoing external calls after a set time. People tend to talk
about sports, movies, politics and such other subjects over telephone. Now, these topics are generally not
related to business. Moreover, such topics tend to take more time than the business talk for which the call was
originally made. If duration of each call can be restricted, people will talk to the point and not drift to other
unproductive talk. There are many advantages:
Reduction in telephone bills.
Trunks will be easily available for other outgoing calls. More business calls can be made during working
hours leading to more business.
Your trunks remain free for incoming calls. More customers can call.
People spend more time on the actual job on hand rather than on telephone. This means increased
productivity.
Call Duration Control can be set for each station.
Call Duration Control for Outgoing calls can be enabled/disabled for local calls, STD+ISD calls and incoming
calls separately.
How it works?
Local calls, STD calls and incoming calls can be disconnected at set times.
Local calls, STD calls and incoming calls can be disconnected for different timings separately.
24 PROTON 206/308 V1 System Manual
If CDC is activated, then system gives warning beeps after time = CDC warn timer. After the warning tone,
the system waits for time = CDC good-bye timer before releasing the connection forcefully.
CDC can be activated on selected stations.
CDC can be activated for either day, or night, or both.
In case of transferred call, the CDC timer gets reset and starts again afresh on the transferred station.
It is also possible to just warn the user without disconnecting his call. In this case, the user gets the beeps
after the programmed time but his call does not get disconnected.
If Barge-in/Raid feature is used on a station on which CDC is activated then the time for which Barge-In/Raid
was done will not be counted.
How to program?
Step 1: Enable/disable CDC for local calls using command 3331.
Step 2: Enable/disable CDC for STD call using command 3332.
Step 3: Enable/disable CDC for incoming calls using command 3333.

Call Forward
Whats this?
In an organization people might move from one place to another to accomplish a job. They do not sit at fixed
places. A user might go to his colleagues desk to work on a project they are doing jointly. A manager might go
on the production floor or remain in conference room for few hours. In such situations, a user cannot afford to
miss his calls. He would like to attend his calls from his new location. To fulfill this requirement, the PROTON
206/308 offers a facility called Call Forward.
Access to Call Forward is programmable and hence can be allowed or denied to a user. Please refer topic
Class Of Service (COS) for details on how to enable this feature on a particular station.
The PROTON 206/308 offers three types of Call Forward:
Call Forward-All Calls
Call Forward-If Busy
Call Forward-If No Reply
Call Forward-All Calls
Whats this?
You can use this feature when you are not available on your place for some time and you wish to divert all
your calls on some other station.
Whenever you wish privacy or want to attend to uninterrupted discussion or thinking, you can use this
feature. Once invoked, all calls on your station will go to the station where the calls are forwarded.

How to use it?
Example:
My station is 23. I am busy in meeting. I want my calls to go to station 24, dial 131-24.
Call Forward-If Busy
Whats this?
This feature is useful for a group of people performing same type of job. In such a case you can divert your
calls to your colleague while you are already busy over phone.
The external calls can only intimate you by giving beeps but they wont be transferred to the specified station.
How to use it?
Example:
My station is 23. I am busy over phone most of the times. To forward all my calls to station 24 in such condition,
dial 134-24.
Call Forward-If No Reply
Whats this?
The system diverts the call to some other station if the destination does not answer the ring in time = Ring
Back Timer: transfer on no-reply.
You and your colleague can use this feature. In your absence, the caller automatically gets diverted to your
colleague who can take messages for you.
How to use it?
Example:
I have two stations, 23 and 25. I am busy over station 23 and the call comes on station 25 at that time only. I
want that if my existing call gets finished in some time, I can attend the call on station 25 but if could not attend
the call then it should be diverted to station 24 after some time. To forward the call to station 24 but only after few
rings, dial 133-24 from station 25.
Cancel Call Forward (all calls/if busy/if no reply)
Important Points:
If the call is important, your secretary (the station where your calls are forwarded) can dial you and transfer
the call back to you.
You can continue making calls from your station.
The station dial tone changes to feature tone if its calls are forwarded.
If your station is 21 and if you have forwarded all your calls to station 24 under no-reply condition then all
calls which are transferred to station 21 will land on station 21 for time = Ring Back Timer: Transfer on no-
Reply and then will land on station 24.
Trunk calls also get diverted if not answered.

Call Park
Whats this?
You can park the current call and attend to another call.
While a call is parked, you may use other system features like Call Pick-Up, Call Follow-Me, attending a call
ringing on other station without losing current call. While the call is parked the parked party gets the music.
If you dont retrieve the call within time equal to call park timer, the call comes back to you automatically. Your
station starts ringing. In case you are in conversation, you get beeps to remind you of the parked call.
How to use it?
To retrieve the parked call:
Example:
My station is 23. While talking with one party, I got external call waiting tone (double beeps). To attend the
waiting call; I should park the present call. When my talk is completed with this call, I want to retrieve the parked
call. To do this, I should

Call Splitting between a station and a trunk
Important Points:
Only one of the two persons will be in conversation with you at a time. The third person is on hold. He gets
music and cannot hear your conversation.
When in speech with a station and getting external call waiting tone, you can dial Flash-1 to answer the trunk
call. The station is put on hold and gets music. Now, you can split between the two persons.
Interrupting station can also be answered very much in the same way as described above. Your current call
is put on hold and speech with the interrupting station is established. Once again, you can split between the
two persons.
Conference can be invoked to include both the parties by dialing Flash-0.
A station user having access to Call Hold can only do call splitting.
How to program?
Please refer Class Of Service (COS) for details on how to allow Call Hold to a user.

Important Points:
Internal station calls can also be transferred to some other station.
While waiting for the station to answer, you can abandon the transfer by dialing Flash. The ring on the station
is stopped and you get connected to the person on hold.
Call Transfer-While Ringing
Whats this?
Transfer a call without waiting for the destination to answer.
An operator can use this feature when there are other calls pending and she cannot wait for the station to
respond to intimate the call.
This is also known as Wait For Ring Transfer.
How to use it?
Important Points:
Internal station calls can also be transferred to some other station.
If the called station does not respond to the ring within 45 secs., the call comes back to the station that
transferred the call. This is same as Ring back tone timer.
If the station that transferred the call is free at the time of call return, caller gets ring.
If the station that transferred the call is busy at the time of call return and if it was an internal call transfer then
the caller gets busy tone.
Call Transfer-On Busy
Whats this?
Transfer a call on a station already in speech with some other person.
Operators can transfer calls without even checking for the status of the destination station.
This is also known as Blind Transfer.
The busy destination station gets intrusion tone. He can speak to the calling person by dialing Flash.
How to use it?
Important Points:
Internal station calls can also be transferred to some other station.
A call can be transferred on busy station only if it is not programmed with call privacy from trunk call.
If the called station does not respond to the intrusion tone within 45 seconds, the call comes back to the
station that transferred the call.
If the station that transferred the call is free at the time of call return, caller gets ring.
If the station that transferred the call is busy at the time of call return and if it was an internal call transfer then
the caller gets busy tone.

Call Transfer-Trunk-to-Trunk
Whats this?
An external call can be transferred on another trunk line.
The operator need not remain in speech. Two external persons can speak through the PROTON 206/308.
How to use it?
Important Points:
In case a colleague has not come to the office, his incoming calls can be transferred on his residences
phone line or on his mobile.
In case a remote colleague is not having long distance or international dialing facility from his present
location. He can dial his office and request the operator to connect him to the desired number.
A warning tone is given after DOSA inactivity timer. To extend the call, either of the person has to dial a digit
in tone (DTMF). Dialing of ## terminates the call and both the trunks get released.
Single/Double Ring on Trunk Call Transfer
Whats this?
The PROTON 206/308 can be programmed to give single/double ring on trunk call transferred on another
station.

Class Of Service (COS)
Whats this?
From the viewpoint of utilizing the features of a PBX, all users in an organization are not equal. Some users are
important and their time is more valuable. Further, their nature of job also differs. Keeping this diversity in mind,
it is imperative that the features they need from a system differ from person to person.
The feature requirements can also vary from time to time. For example, the features required during day time
and during night time need not be the same.
It is the systems responsibility to allow or deny a feature access to a user depending on his needs. The system
should support flexible allocation of features to different users. This accessibility of different features for a user is
known as his Class of Service (COS).
How it works?
The PROTON 206/308 supports very flexible COS programming. Each user can be assigned different COS
depending on his and the organizations needs. All the features supported by the system are presented in form
of a list.
Each feature in the list is identified with a 2-digit number (Feature Index).
Following table lists all the features with feature index to be used during programming:
Feature Name Feature Index
Internal Dialing 00
Call Hold + Call Park 01
Call Transfer 02
Conference 03
Call Pick Up 04
Hot Outward Dialing 05
Dynamic Lock 06
Alarm 07
Call Forward 08
Call Follow Me 09
PROTON 206/308 V1 System Manual 37
Relevant features from this list can be selected and put in a group. One can make few feature access groups
depending upon the requirement. First group contains none of the features. Second group contain only internal
dialing. Third group contain very common features like Call Pick Up, Call Transfer, Internal Dialing etc. Fourth
group contain more advanced features and so on. Once programmed, COS groups may look like:
By default, in all the 10 COS groups a set of features is allowed based on common requirement. Default
COS groups chart is attached herewith:
Now, these groups can be allocated to the users depending upon the hierarchy of the user in the organization. A
user can be assigned different COS groups for day time and night time. Once these groups are assigned to the
users, the users COS table looks like:
Auto Call Back 10
Interrupt Request + Barge-In 11

Conference
Whats this?
The PROTON 206/308 offers the facility of 3-party conference. 3-Party conference can be conducted at a spur
of the moment without much prior planning. If a user is talking to some one and he feels he should include a third
person in his present talk and have a conference, he can do so without disconnecting his present talk. All he has
to do is to hold present person, dial the third person and then dial conference code.
Following three combinations are allowed in 3-party conference
All three stations
Two stations and one trunk
One station and two trunks
How to use it?
It is possible to have Conference-Unsupervised.
This feature enables the operator to connect two trunks through the system and get herself free from the
discussion.
Suppose you are at city A. Your two colleagues are at city B and city C. Now using this feature, you being at City
A can make conference with City B and City C and once in conversation, if you disconnect then City B and City
C can talk to each other.
How to use it?

Continued Dialing
Whats this?
Modern trunk exchanges support many advanced features like Call waiting, Call Forward, etc. This requires
dialing of codes during speech. The dialing of codes does not create problem when you are dialing on the trunk
directly, but the PBX between you and the TELCO exchange, the TELCO codes clash with the PBX codes. This
leads to difficulty in accessing TELCO features while in speech. However, Matrix supports access to all codes
from any station. In essence, you have to inform the PBX that you need to dial some code on the trunk. Dialing
Flash-# precisely does this. Once this code is dialed, you can dial any code within 10 seconds.
How to use it?
1 3-way mode as described in call splitting.

Day and Night Modes
Whats this?
The PROTON 206/308 can be programmed to work differently during daytime (working hours) and nighttime
(non-working hours). This makes management of trunk calls efficient and avoid misuse of features and facilities.
Generally following features/facilities can be programmed differently for day and night times.

This feature is very helpful in offices. The PROTON 206/308 can be set to night mode (non-working hour) at the
close of the day. The next morning it can be set to day mode (working hours).
How to use it?
Use following command to switch day/night mode:
151 : System goes in day mode.
152 : System goes in night mode.
This command is allowed from SA and SE Mode.
By default, the system is in Day Mode.
Default the Configuration
Whats this?
Every system comes with pre-defined set of variables like stations flexible numbers, timers and other
parameters. These pre-defined settings are called default settings. The default value of each programmable
parameter is mentioned in the respective section. If the default setting suits your requirements then you may not
even program the system and the system will work according to default settings.
When to use it?
Many times it happens that due to some programming error, the system goes haywire and you are unable to
analyse the problem. During such situation, it is advisable to software default the system. However software
default of the system can be done from the programming mode and hence programming password should be
known. If you forget the password then software default cannot be done and in that case hardware default of the
system should be done.
How to use it?
Enter Programming Mode.
Dial 18-Programming Password.
The system restarts
Important Point:
Software default of the system will change all system parameters, system timers, system passwords and all
the parameters set related to various features and facilities to default values.

Demonstration of Tones
Whats this?
Different types of tones generated by the PBX to indicate different status like error tone, dial tone, etc. can be
heard by giving following commands. When a customer purchases an PBX, he feels to get acquainted with
different types of tones given by the system. Unless one is familiar with these tones, he would not understand
their meaning. If a group of people wants to hear these tones, a hands-free phone can be used.
42 PROTON 206/308 V1 System Manual
How to use it?
Following commands can be used to hear different types of tones. (These commands should be given from the
programming mode).
Timer of Relevance:
Demonstration Tone Timer-This time specifies the duration of for which tone while demonstrated.
Command : 217-18-Timer
Default : 20 seconds
Valid Range : 01 to 99 seconds
Department Call
Whats this?
A common number can be assigned to a group of persons doing same kind of job.
This feature is very useful in service industry where few homogenous groups of persons performing similar
type of work are formed. Now for the caller, it is not important to talk to a particular person only, rather he
wants solution for his problem. Now to get solution he has to dial a station, if that station is busy, he has to
again dial another station and this may go on if more people of the group are busy. Instead, if there is a
common code for this group, it would be easy for the caller to dial a code and call goes to any of the free
stations of that group. This feature precisely satisfies this need. Here you have to dial a code and the call will
land on first of the free stations from the group.
However, if required a particular person can also be contacted by dialing his station number.
Maximum 10 groups can be defined. Each group has a unique code. The access codes for group 0 to 9 are
from 3980 to 3889.
How it works?
You can program maximum 8 stations in a group.
Maximum 10 such groups can be formed.
A station can also be put in any group.
A station can also be kept out of all groups.
Once station can be programmed in more the one group.
When a fresh call is made on a group, the system locates first free station in a group. The call is routed on
this station. Accordingly, incoming traffic will be more on the first few stations in a group.
A new incoming call will go on later station if all previous stations are busy.
Group call can be made even from DID.
If groups are not programmed, we get error tone when we make a department call.
No group of stations is defined by factory default; hence one cannt access any station by dialing group code
unless it is programmed.

Station1...Station8 are stations from 21 to 28 to be defined in a group. (If less than 8 station are required in a
group, use # to terminate the command).
Example:
To program stations 21, 25 and 28 in a group to be accessed with code 3980.
Use following command:
251-0-21-25-28-#
Program station 21, 25 and 28 in a group to be accessed with code 3981.
251-1-21-25-28-#
Important Point:
Department group 9 is used as VMS group. Hence if VMS is interfaced with the PROTON 206/308 and if the
VMS ports are assigned a group, group 9 cannot be used for Pilot Call.

Direct Outward System Access (DOSA)
Whats this?
DOSA enables the user to use the system resources for making outgoing call from anywhere outside the office.
This facility is generally used to make long distance calls.
How it works?
PROTON 206/308 V1 System Manual 45
To make one DOSA call, minimum two trunk lines are used (L2 and L3 in figure). Hence, these should be
connected to the PBX. However, in all four trunk lines are (L1, L2, L3 and L4 in figure) used while using this
facility as shown below.
When a caller dials a DOSA activated trunk, two trunk lines (L1 and L2) are used. Then the caller grabs the
third trunk (L3) and dials a telephone number where fourth line (L4) is used.
In DOSA call, speech quality may deteriorate since the length of the path increase.
How to use DOSA facility?
Dial a DOSA activated trunk.
On getting PBX dial tone, dial 1-Station Number-User Password. You get DOSA dial tone. (Short beeps)
On getting DOSA dial tone, dial 0, 5, 61, 62 or 63 to grab another trunk to get P & T dial tone.
On getting P & T dial tone, dial the telephone number.
Dial any digit except # to continue the talk.
Dial # to disconnect the call.
You are still logged in the system. You can make another call by grabbing P & T line.
Dial # to end the DOSA session.
How to program DOSA facility?
Step 1: Enable/disable DOSA on trunk during day time and night time using command 45.
Step 2: Enable/disable DOSA on a station using command 35.

Important Points:
DOSA facility can be enabled on one or more trunks.
DOSA can be enabled/disabled for Day and Night times independently.
DOSA inactivity timer is the time for which a line remains active even after the call is finished if the user
forgets to log out by dialing #. Hence it is advisable to program this timer for optimum period.
Because of poor line conditions, it is possible that DOSA facility may not work.
DOSA facility allows remote users to make long distance calls. It is advisable for all the users to
understand the power and cost implication of this facility and hence enable this facility very carefully. It
is strongly recommended to protect this facility with a unique password.

Please refer Call Forward for more details.
Dynamic Lock
Whats this?
A user can lock his station to avoid misuse of local and long distance dialing in his absence.
When a user locks his station, his toll control changes to limited dialing or no dialing.
The lock operates with a 4-digit password. Each user has his personal password called User Password.
Station can be locked manually or automatically.
If manual lock is selected, then user should lock the station while leaving his work place by dialing the
required code. On returning back to work place, he can unlock the station.
If automatic lock is selected, the system locks the station after a set time automatically.
The timer starts from the time when the station is unlocked.
How to use it?
To Select Auto or Manual Lock

External Call Forward (ECF)
Whats this?
It is possible to divert the calls on your personal trunk line to your residence or your mobile number. This facility
of diverting your incoming trunk calls is known as External Call Forwarding or ECF in short.
How to program?
Step 1: Decide the trunk of which the calls are to be forwarded.
Step 2: Assign a destination trunk for the ECF trunk.
Step 3: Assign the destination number where the calls are to be forwarded.
Step 1
Use following command to enable/disable ECF on a trunk:
521-Trunk-Day Time-Night Time
Where,
Trunk is from 1 to 3 of which the calls are to be forwarded.
By default, ECF is OFF on all the trunks.
Step 2
Use following command to assign destination trunk to forward the calls of a trunk:
522-Trunk-Destination Trunk
Where,
Trunk is 1 to 3 of which the calls are to be forwarded.
Destination trunk from 1 to 3 or 0 or 5. It signifies the trunk to be used by the PBX to dial out the telephone
number. If 0 or 5 programmed as destination trunk then any of the free trunks from group 0 or group 5 would be
used for out dialing.
Step 3
Use following command to assign destination number where the calls are to be forwarded for a trunk:
523-Trunk-Telephone Number-#
Where,
Trunk is 0, 5, 1, 2, or 3 of which the calls are to be forwarded.
Telephone Number is the number (maximum 16 digits) where the calls are to be forwarded.
Example:
Program ECF on trunk 1 during night time. Destination trunk can be any free trunk from group 0. The calls are
to be forwarded to 2359695.
521-1-0-1
522-1-0
523-1-2359695-#
Day Time Night Time Meaning

call and after that the system dials the telephone number.
Command: 217-32-Timer
Default: 03 seconds
Valid Range: 01 to 99 seconds.
Important Point:
ECF calls are same as DOSA calls. The ECF call shall get disconnected after time = DOSA Inactivity Timer +
DOSA Wait Timer. Hence to continue as ECF call, it is mandatory for the user to dial any digit after the
warning beeps.

Whats this?
Please refer Call Forward for more details.
Flash Timer
Whats this?
While transferring a call, one uses the hook switch or the Flash key provided on the telephone instrument or
digit 1 if the telephone instrument is in pulse mode.
Many times it happens that while transferring the call, the call either gets disconnected or is not transferred. This
happens due to mismatch of time for which the hook switch is pressed, if used for transferring the call hence it is
advisable to use Flash Key of the telephone instrument. This problem may occur with Flash Key also, if the timer
for the Flash Key on the telephone instrument and the flash timer of the system are not set properly.
Few telephone instruments have flash timers set to 800 ms. In such case the call does not get transferred
because the flash timer of all stations is set at 600 ms by default. In such cases the flash timer of the station
where the cordless phone is connected should be increased to 800ms.
Use following command to set Flash Timer:
36-Station-Count
Where,
Station is the software port number is from 21 to 28.
Count is from 2 to 9. (count 1 implies 100 milliseconds)
By default, Flash Timer is 6 (600 milliseconds).
Use following command to set same Flash timer on all stations:
36-*-Count
Example:
To set the flash timer 800ms on station 23, dial 36-23-8.
Important Point:
Flash timer should be changed very cautionsly.
PROTON 206/308 V1 System Manual 51
Flexible Numbers
Whats this?
The PROTON 206/308 offers flexibility to assign a code of your choice to access a station. This code is called
flexible number. For example, to access first station one has to dial 21. It is possible to change this code to any
other number of your choice.
The system loads default flexible numbers to all the stations on first power ON. Later the stations can be
assigned desired flexible numbers.
Following table shows the flexible numbers assigned to the port is default state.
How to program?
Use following command to program the flexible number for a station:
37-Port Number-Flexible Number-#/Flash
Where,
Port Number is from 01 to 08.
Flexible number can be of 1, 2, 3 or 4 digits.
Terminate the command using #/Flash, if flexible number is of less than four digits.
Use following command to assign default flexible numbers to all the ports:
37-*-0
Use following command to clear flexible number for a particular station:
37-Port Number-Flash
Where,
Port Number is from 01 to 08.
Use following command to clear flexible numbers for all stations:
37-*-Flash
Example:
Port 01 to 04 should be assigned flexible numbers as 31 to 34 and port from 05 to 08 should be assigned flexible
numbers as 21 to 24.

Important Points:
Flexible numbers are the codes dialed from dial phase to call another station. These flexible numbers should
be unique and should not match with any other station or any of the features available from the dial phase.
It is possible to have single digit, 2-digit, 3-digit and 4-digit flexible numbers.
It is also possible that few stations have single digit, few have 2-digit, few have 3-digit and remaining have
four digit flexible numbers.
Flexible number having common digits cant be assigned to another station. For example if 3101 is used then
310 cant be used/programmed. Same way if 3111 is used then 311 cant be used/programmed.
Same flexible number cannot be assigned to two different stations. For example, if you have used 211 for
one station then 211 cant be assigned to any other station if both the stations are in the same tenant group.
It is possible to clear the flexible number of all the stations.
When the flexible number of a station is cleared, one cannot call that station. However the station with null
flexible number can make calls as usual.
Use flexible numbers for all the features used from User mode. Software port numbers are to be used only
during for SE mode or SA mode.
If any flexible number starts with a digit used for feature code then the feature can be used after preferring it
with *. For e.g. if a station is assigned flexible number 44 then code for Raid becomes *4.

Hotline
Whats this?
The PROTON 206/308 offers three types of hotline viz. Hotline-Trunk, Hotline-External Number and Hotline-
Internal.
Hotline-Trunk
You get connected to a trunk, the moment you lift the handset.
This feature is useful when you are making more number of trunk calls compared to internal calls. Once this
feature is enabled, as soon as you lift the handset you get the trunk dial tone after the set time.
This feature is also called Hot Outward Dialing (HOD).
If 0 or 5 is used as trunk, then any of the free trunks from group 0 or 5 will be given to the station user the
moment he picks up the handset.

To set Hotline-Trunk
1 Speech with one station/external caller.
2 Dial Flash. Station goes on hold and gets music. You get dial tone.
1 Lift the handset. Dial tone
2 Dial 151-Trunk. Confirmation tone
PROTON 206/308 V1 System Manual 53
Example:
To simulate dialing of trunk 2 immediately on lifting the handset, dial 151-2.
Hotline-External Number
You get connected to a desired external number the moment you lift the handset.
This feature is useful when you are making call to a particular external number many times in a day. Once
this feature is enabled, as soon as you lift the handset, the system dials the telephone number and you get
connected to the external person.
This feature is also called Hotline with Number.
To set Hotline-External Number:
Example:
Let us activate Hotline for external number 0265 2630555. Let us assume group 0.
Dial following code to set this feature:
152-0-02652630555-#
Hotline-Internal
Hotline-Internal helps avoiding repeated dialing of a station number.
Simply by lifting the handset, the caller gets connected to the programmed station.
In an office environment, it is found that a boss calls his secretary or his co-worker frequently. This feature
could be of great help to him.
This feature is also called Boss-Secretary feature.
To set Hotline-Internal
Example:
The boss needs to speak to his secretary (station number 22) many times in a day. He can avoid repeated
dialing by activating the Hotline-Internal feature from his station:
153-22
Delayed Hotline
After lifting the handset you do not get connected to the station immediately but get regular dial tone. If the user
does not dial anything during this short dial tone, the PBX places the hotline call to the station. This delay timer
allows the user to dial other numbers without cancelling hotline.
To Set Hotline Timer:
The default value of hot line timer is 5 seconds and its range is 1-9 seconds.
The hot line timer cannot be set to 0 seconds.
Cancel Hotline:
1 Lift the handset. Dial tone
2 Dial 152-Trunk-Number-#*. Confirmation tone
1 Lift the handset. Dial tone
2 Dial 153-Station. Confirmation tone
1 Lift the handset. Dial tone
2 Dial 154-Seconds. Confirmation tone
1 Lift the handset. Dial tone
2 Dial 150. Confirmation tone
54 PROTON 206/308 V1 System Manual
Please note that the cancellation code must be dialed from the PBX dial tone. If the Hotline timer is 1 second,
you have to be very quick in dialing the code.
How to program?
Refer Class Of Service (COS) for details on how to allow Hot line to a user.
Important Point:
Only one type of Hotline can be activated on the same station at the same time.

Internal Call Restriction
Whats this?
The PROTON 206/308 offers a feature that helps restrict calls to a particular station/group of stations.
How it works?
The PROTON 206/308 offers three types of groups viz. Solo Group, Party Group and Universal Group.
Solo Group (Group 0) has only one station.
Maximum 8 Solo Groups can be formed.
A station in Solo Group can call any station in the Universal Group but he cannot call any other station in any
Party group or Solo group.
A station in a Party Group can call any station within his group and any station in Universal group. However
he cannot call a station in any other Party group or any station in Solo group.
A station in Universal Group can call any other station within Universal Group or any station in any of the
party groups or any station in Solo group.
Following diagram depicts this logic:

Power Down Mode
Whats this?
During power failure, it is desirable to have trunk lines available directly on few stations. This is known as Power
Down Mode. When mains power returns, normal operation resumes. Change over from normal to power down
operation and back is automatic.
During power down mode, by default, Trunk 1 gets connected to station 21, Trunk 2 gets connected to station
22, whereas Trunk 3 gets connected to station 23. At the time of Power failure/Power return ongoing calls gets
disconnected.
During power failure condition, calls can be made from these stations. Also the incoming calls lands on
respective stations. This way, your link with the outside world is retained even during dark-outs.

Privacy
Whats this?
While two stations are in speech, it is desired that no third person can listen their talk i.e. privacy of their
conversation in maintained.
However if few important stations are allowed to use features like interrupt request, barge-in and raid, they can
intrude others conversation. Also if DID is activated, outside caller can reach a station or if there is a call from
another trunk line, it will interrupt your conversation by giving intrusion tone. Some times this is very annoying
and undesirable. The PROTON-308 provides privacy against all these types of intrusion. This is known as
privacy.
These are three types of intrusions against which a user might wish privacy:
Privacy from Interrupt Request/Barge-In and Raid
Privacy from Trunk call routing beeps
Privacy from DID calls
How to program?
Use following command to program the station for call privacy:
303-Station-Privacy from IR/BI/Raid-Privacy from Trunk call routing beeps-Privacy from DID calls.
Where,
Station is from 21 to 28.
Use following command to program call privacy on all the stations:
303-*-Privacy from IR/BI/Raid-Privacy from Trunk call routing beeps-Privacy from DID calls
Example:
To program call privacy from Raid and DID calls on station 23, dial 303-23-1-0-1. With this, no station can raid
station 23. Also DID calls will not disturb station 23.
Important Points:
The feature Transfer-on Busy will not work if call privacy from trunk call routing beeps is enabled.
By default, Privacy for Trunk Call routing beeps is enabled on all the stations. Whereas, privacy for Interrupt
Request/Barge-In and Raid and DID call is disabled on all the stations.
Private Trunk
Whats this?
The PROTON 206/308 offers a flexibility to assign a dedicated trunk to a station.
On programming a trunk as Private trunk for a station:
All the incoming calls land directly on the assigned station.
HOD gets activated on the trunk.

Protecting the System
The PROTON 206/308 does not work in isolation with the environment. It is connected to the environment in
following ways:
Power is fed to the system for functioning of the system.
Being a PBX system, trunk lines and stations are also connected to the system.
The system should be protected from static charges that could find their way through the system
components.
If the system is protected from these interfaces, 100% satisfactory and trouble free performance of the system is
guaranteed.
Protecting the system from heavy voltages from the Mains:
The PROTON 206/308 is designed to work with input voltages ranging between 90-265VAC. To protect the
system from abrupt changes in the input voltage, use of CVT is recommended. CVT of 100VA is recommended.
Protecting the system from heavy voltages on the trunk lines and the overhead stations:
The PROTON 206/308 can get damaged if heavy voltages enter the system from trunk lines or from overhead
stations.
These heavy voltages could be due to:
Heavy voltage line falling on the CO line or on the overhead stations cable.
Thunderbolts.
Short-circuit of trunk lines or overhead station cables with electric cables. It is necessary to protect the
system from these voltages. The protection can be in the form of some protection devices like GDTs, MOVs,
Fuses, etc. These protection devices are inbuilt for each trunk in the system.
These devices work satisfactorily only if they are properly earthed. It is recommended that the PROTON 206/
308 is provided a separate telecom earth. A dedicated terminal marked ETH is provided on the MDF of the
system to which the telecom earth should be connected. Telecom earth is a dedicated earth only for the PBX.
The advantage of having a dedicated earth is that there is no risk of back voltage. There are chances that if the
earth is not perfect, instead of providing protection to the system, it may damage the system.
Protecting the system from static charges:
While installing the system or servicing the system, care must be taken to provide a path to the static charges. It
is advisable for the system engineer to touch a grounded object before touching the system before installation or
maintenance.
Protecting the system from Lightning:
Protecting the system from high current surges is achieved by installing primary protection device. A lightning
protector is a primary protection device which is used to prevent a dangerous surge from entering the building
and damaging the system. For equipment installed in a more exposed environment, it is necessary to protect the
system with primary protectors such as PPMs. With the development of electronic equipment, problems due to
lighting surges have increased. A dangerous surge can occur if a telephone line comes in contact with a power
line. A lightning protector should be installed on an outside (CO) line to prevent a dangerous surge from entering
the building and damaging the system. The best place for the insertion of the primary protection is the cable
entry point of the building, shelter or equipment housing.
66 PROTON 206/308 V1 System Manual
This is not always possible but every attempt should be made to place the primary protection as close as
possible to the entry point of the cables into the building, shelter or equipment housing. Hence, the system
should be installed with lighting protectors. In addition, grounding (connection to earth ground) is very important
to protect the system.
Surge Protective Device (SPD):
A device that is intended to mitigate surge overvoltages and overcurrents of limited durations. It may consist of a
single component or have a more complex design, where several functions are integrated. It contains at least
one non-linear component. Primary protection is applied using an SPD to protect an interface of the equipment,
at the location where it diverts most of the stressful energy from propagation into the equipment. The SPD must
be accessible, removable and connected to equipotential bonding. The cost of using Gas Discharge Tube(GDT)/
Metal Oxide Varistor(MOV)/Fuses for equipment protection will be far more economical than the equipment
downtime and potential damage that could result from being improperly protected. Surge protection device
creates a short circuit and shunting the surge voltage to ground, when a preset voltage threshold is exceeded.
Inherent Protection:
Inherent protection is that protection which is provided at an equipment interface either by virtue of its intrinsic
characteristics, by specific design or by suitable protection components. Inherent protector is not a subsidiary
but an essential device because it usually operates earlier than the primary protector and protects the
components.
Raid
Whats this?
Without knowledge of the called busy station, one can enter his conversation by using this feature.
The raided station does not come to know that it has been raided unless the person who has raided speaks
something.

Receiving Incoming Calls
The PROTON 206/308 is very flexible in directing trunk calls. Whenever there is a ring on the trunk, the
PROTON 206/308 senses it and directs it to one (or more) stations.
Different stations can be programmed to receive incoming calls-one during normal office hours (day time) and
other during after office hours (night time).
Programmed station can receive incoming call when it is free or even when in speech with some other station.
If the programmed destination is free, it starts ringing. To answer the ring, just lift the handset and start talking.
If the programmed destination is in speech with some other station or trunk, it gets trunk call waiting tone
(repeated double sharp beeps) over his speech. The station can get connected to the ringing trunk/station by
dialing flash. The other station/trunk is put on hold and gets hold on music.
A trunk can be made to land on a station in four different ways. This is called hunting scheme. For more details,
please refer Trunk Landing.

Remote Alarm
Whats this?
Secretary can set alarm for the boss from his own station.
At the set time, the telephone of the boss starts ringing.
When he lifts the handset, he gets music.
If the boss does not answer the call for time = Alarm Ring Timer 1 then bosss station and operators station
starts ringing for time = Alarm Ring Timer 2.
How to use it?
Station is the station on which remote alarm to be set. Minutes is from 00 to 99.
Example:
Set a duration alarm of 5 minutes on station 23 from station 26. Issue following command from station 26.
1 Lift the handset. Dial tone
2 Dial 164-Station-1-Minutes. Confirmation tone
3 Replace the handset.

Remote Lock
Whats this?
The SE/SA can lock/unlock a station for outgoing calls remotely.
The SE/SA can lock/unlock a station for all outgoing calls/selective outgoing calls from any station without
changing the Toll Control of a station.
How to use it?
To Unlock a station remotely:
Use following command to unlock a station (command should be issued from SA/SE mode):
3*1-Station-1
Where,
Station is from 21 to 28.
Or
3*3-Station-1
Where,
Station is from 21 to 28.
On issuing either of the above commands, the station shall allow outgoing calls as per Toll Control programmed
for the station.
To Lock a station remotely:
Use following command to lock a station remotely (command should be issued from SA/SE mode):
3*1-Station-0
Where,
Station is from 21 to 28.
Or
3*3-Station-0
Where,
Station is from 21 to 28.
On issuing either of the above commands the station allows outgoing calls as per the Toll Control programmed
for the locked condition of the station. It also cancels any private trunk set for the station.
1 Lift the handset. Dial tone
2 Dial 160. Confirmation tone
3 Replace the handset.
PROTON 206/308 V1 System Manual 69
Important Points:
This command should be issued very cautiously as outgoing calls will be hampered.
On issuing this command the station will be assigned a solo group automatically and he will be able to talk to
only the stations in the universal group.
Remote Programming
Whats this?
One can program the PROTON 206/308 from any remote location. The remote user can program the system
using the same commands as used by a normal local station to program the system.
How it works?
Often customers do not have time to read the system manual and program the system at their own, they can
ask the dealer to program the system from his office as per your needs.
Customer makes a call to the dealer. Alternatively, dealer can also call the customer. Dealer is the remote
end.
Once in speech, customer should dial Flash-3999. Dialing Flash puts the remote end on hold. Dialing
3999 again establishes the speech between the customer and the remote end.
The customer or the dealer may dial the password. Dialing correct password gives programming beeps. Both
the parties can hear programming beeps.
Now the dealer can start programming from his office. Alternatively the customer can also dial the codes on
request from the dealer.
Dealer or the customer should dial 0 to exit from programming mode.
The customer may disconnect when programming is over.
Important Points:
All the steps and codes are same as in local programming.
User can dial his own secret password. Remote end need not know the password.
It is mandatory to establish speech and remain connected with one station throughout the programming
session. They can continue talking while entering programming codes. This makes the whole process
interactive.
Remote end must dial in tone (DTMF) mode.

Restart the System
Whats this?
The PROTON 206/308 supports a command from the SE mode to restart the system. This command gives
same effect as switching off the system and switching it on again. Many times if is difficult to physically walk to
the system and restart it. It is convenient if we could do the same from a station. This command precisely
provides this facility.
How to use it?
Use following command to restart the system:
10
Important Point:
This command does not alter any programming parameters. However, all active conversations will be
disconnected and the ports in use will be released.

Selective Trunk Access
Whats this?
This feature helps to access a particular trunk. It is useful in a case in which all the trunks are not identical in
terms of services they offer. It is useful in case you have a hotline connection from the P&T exchange.
How to use it?
Example:
To grab trunk 1, dial 61.
To grab trunk 2, dial 62.
To grab trunk 3, dial 63.
Important Point:
You would not get the P&T dial tone by dialing 61 or 62 or 63 if the trunk is not physically connected to the
system.
Station Parameters
Whats this?
In an organization, all the stations cannot have same characteristics. Each station differs from the other in one
respect or the other like Flexible number, Toll Control, Class of Service, Flash Timer, Station Name, etc.
Following parameters should be programmed along with above mentioned parameters for smooth functioning of
the system:
Internal Digit-Digit (Inter Digit) Timer-Time for which the system waits for next digit while in dial phase.
Command: 217-08-Timer
Default: 05 seconds

Toll Control
Whats this?
Toll Control can:
Restrict dialing all local telephone numbers.
Restrict dialing certain local telephone numbers.
Restrict dialing telephone nos. starting with 95.
Restrict dialing certain areas (area codes 03 and 04).
Allow dialing only certain telephone number. (2630555)
Allow dialing only certain area code.
Allow dialing only those telephone numbers starting with particular digit. (1)
How it works?
The PROTON 206/308 uses Allowed and Denied Lists to support this feature.
When a call is made, the PROTON 206/308 compares each digit of the dialed number string with the number
strings in allowed and denied list.
If the dialed number string matches with any of the number strings available in allowed list, the PROTON
206/308 dials the number on the trunk, else compares with the number strings in the denied list.
If the dialed number string matches with any of the number strings available in denied list, the PROTON 206/
308 restricts dialing the number and gives error tone to the station user.
If the dialed number matches with a number string that is available in both allowed and denied lists then
allowed list is given priority and the dialed number is dialed on the trunk.
How to use it?
By default, few number strings are available in the allowed and denied lists. If these number strings satisfy
the requirement then these should be assigned to the station for day time and night time.
If the requirement is not met by default allowed and denied list then customized allowed and denied lists
should be programmed.
The number strings which are to be allowed should be programmed as allowed strings.
The number strings which are to be denied should be programmed as denied strings.
One such allowed-denied list (level) should be assigned to each station for day time and night time
individually.
If customized toll control is to be provided then customized numbers should be programmed as allowed
strings and denied strings. For example, the requirement is that station 21 can make a call to Mumbai (022)
but should not make any other long distance call. In this case, number string 022 should be programmed in
one of the locations of the allowed strings and number string 0 should be programmed in one of the
location of denied string and this allowed/denied list (level) should be assigned to station 21.
One such allowed-denied list (level) should also be assigned to the station for the locked condition.
Once the station has been locked, the station user can make calls as per the allowed-denied lists (level)
assigned to the station for the locked condition. This is called Dynamic Toll Control.
Allowed-Denied list 0 (level 0) is assigned in locked condition by default.

Use following command to assign same toll control to all stations:
32-*-Daytime Level-Nighttime Level
Few examples:
Station 28 is to be restricted from dialing all STD numbers except to branches at Calcutta and Bangalore.
Calcutta branch number is 033-23456789 and Bangalore branch number is 080-29876543. Use level 3 for
this Toll Control.
Station 25 is to be restricted from calling mobile phone, short distance calls (95), STD and trunk booking
services (181) in day time. But it should be allowed to dial all these numbers in night time.

Trunk Landing
Whats this?
An incoming call on a trunk can be made to land on desired stations. It is possible to direct different trunks on
different stations during daytime and nighttime.
The PROTON 206/308 offers four different hunting schemes:
Hunting Off: Only the programmed destination will ring. The trunk ring will not be diverted to any other
station. It will continue to ring as long as there is ring on the trunk.
Round Robin: Try one station after the other if programmed destination does not answer the call in 15
seconds (hunttimer). All five stations are tried starting from the programmed station. Each station gets ring
for 15 seconds.
Trunk Access Code '0 'Meaning
0 Trunk cannot be accessed by dialing '0'
1 Trunk can be accessed by dialing '0'
Trunk Access Code '5 'Meaning
0 Trunk cannot be accessed by dialing 5'
1 Trunk can be accessed by dialing '5'

Trunk Parameters
Whats this?
A trunk can individually be enabled or disabled. When the PROTON 206/308 is being used with only one
trunk line the other trunk port must be disabled. This can be useful when a particular trunk goes out of order
and should be stopped from being allocated to a user when he dials common trunk access code 0.
A trunk can be programmed as Tone type and Pulse type.
How to program?
Use following command to Enable/Disable the trunk and set Dial type:
41-Trunk-Enable/Disable-Pulse/Tone
Where,
Trunk is 1, 2 or 3.
By default, all trunks are enabled and programmed as tone type.
Use following command to Enable/Disable and set Dial type on all trunks:
41-*-Enable/Disable-Pulse/Tone
Timers of Relevance:
Class of Service Delay Timer-It is the time after which you get P&T dial tone on dialing 0 or 5 or 61 or 62 or
63. This ensures dialing and storage of complete string of telephone number by the PBX.
Command: 531-Trunk-Seconds
Default: 01 second.
Enable/Disable Meaning
0 Trunk is disabled
1 Trunk is enabled
Pulse/Tone Meaning
0 Trunk is programmed as Pulse type
1 Trunk is programmed as Tone type
PROTON 206/308 V1 System Manual 79
Valid Range: 1 to 9 seconds.
Pause Timer: In old type of P&T exchanges, dial tone comes a bit late which may lead to a condition in which
case the system may dial out the number without waiting for the P&T dial tone. Because of this few initial digits
may not reach the P&T exchange resulting in false dialing. To avoid such mismatch, delay is inserted by the
system before the number is dialed. This ensures proper dialing only after getting dial tone on the trunk. This
delay is known as Pause Timer.
Command: 215-Timer
Default: 03 seconds
Valid Range: 01 to 99 seconds
Trunk First Digit Wait Timer: It is time before which the station should dial the digits on the trunk line after
grabbing the trunk. If the outside telephone number is not dialed during this time, the system gives error tone.
This is a global timer and is applicable to all the First Digit Wait Timer of the trunk.
Command : 217-09-Timer
Default : 15 seconds
Valid Range : 01 to 99 seconds.
Trunk Digit-Digit Wait Timer: It signifies the time for which the system waits for next digit during dialing phase
while dialing on trunk.
Command : 217-33-Timer
Default : 06 seconds
Valid Range : 01 to 99 seconds.
Example:
Enable trunk 1 as tone type and trunk 3 as pulse type:
41-1-0-1
41-3-1-0
Trunk Reservation
Whats this?
A station user can reserve a particular trunk for sometime.
In big offices, the number of users is more but the trunk lines are less. In such cases, at any given time most
of the trunks are busy and a station user might not get his turn to make a call. This feature helps a station
user in such case. He can reserve a trunk for time = trunk reservation timer. During this period, no one else
can access this trunk except the station that has reserved this trunk.
How to use it?
To reserve a trunk:
Example:
To reserve a trunk 2, dial 112-2.
To cancel Trunk Reservation
How to program?
Please refer Class Of Service (COS) for details on how to allow Trunk Reservation to a station user.
1 Lift handset. Dial tone
2 Dial 112-Trunk. Confirmation tone
1 Lift handset. Dial tone
2 Dial 1120. Confirmation tone
80 PROTON 206/308 V1 System Manual
Timer of Relevance:
Trunk Reservation Timer: It specifies the time for which the trunk remains reserved. On expiry of this timer, the
trunk is freed and other stations can use this trunk.
Command : 217-31-Timer
Default : 3 minutes
Valid range : 1 to 9 minutes
Important Points:
Once your call is over, do not forget to cancel the reservation. This will enable other station users to use the
trunk.
A station can reserve a trunk only if it is given access to that trunk.

Universal Service Number
Whats this?
Whenever a station dials universal service number, the call goes to the service station of that particular group.
This feature could be of great use in following type of situation: Suppose more than one office boys (helping
hands) are working in an office. Each one of them is working for a group of people. The requirement is that when
any person dials 8, the office boy corresponding to that set of people should be accessed. Following figure
explains it in more details.
In simple words, the requirement is that when any of the stations from 21, 22 and 23 dials 8, the call should land
on station 27 and when any of the stations from 24, 25 and 26 dials 8, the call should land on station 28. This
can be accomplished using Universal Service Number.
How to program?
Step 1: Take a paper pad and pen.
Step 2: Make a group of all stations to be programmed within one group using command 305.
Step 3: Assign a service station to each group using command 2042.
Step 4: Assign unique code to be used as universal service number using command 2041.
Commands
Step 1

User Security (User Password)
Whats this?
The PROTON 206/308 provides security to the user by way of a Password. This helps to avoid any
unauthorised use.
Each station of the PROTON 206/308 has a password. This password helps the user in using following
features
Call follow me
Dynamic lock
DOSA.
Walk-In Class of Service
Please refer respective features for better understanding.
User password is a 4-digit password. It cannot have either less than or more than 4 digits.
User password can be changed only from the station.
The default User password is 1111 for all the station users. (However, in case the user has forgotten his
password, the system engineer (SE) can clear the password for any user).
82 PROTON 206/308 V1 System Manual
How to program?
Use following command to change the User password from the station (simply after lifting the handset):
144-Old User password-New User password.
Where,
New password is a number string of 4-digits.
By default, User password is 1111 for all the stations.

Virtual Stations
Whats this?
A station is a real (physical) port on the system. Compared to this, virtual station is not a real physical port
whereby a telephone instrument is connected. It is a station virtually connected to the system. Any person
given this facility becomes a virtual station.
PBX can be used as unmanned STD/PCO booth. The owner of the booth should give a station number and
a secret password to the customer and, should explain the procedure of making a call from the customers
residence. The customer becomes the virtual station.
In fact, it is same as a DOSA call except that the station number is pre-defined.
Only few dedicated station numbers i.e. 3900 to 3979 are allowed for this facility to be used. Since these
numbers are used for this purpose, no station can have any of these numbers as their station numbers.
Maximum 80 virtual stations can be defined.
How to use it?
Make a list of customers to whom you have to give this facility. Allot a station number and a unique password
to each customer. This will avoid unauthorized use of this facility.
Give the unique station number and the corresponding password to unique customer.
Explain the steps to use this facility to each customer.
All the steps are same as in DOSA except that here virtual station number and the virtual password is used
instead of the station number and the user password.
How to program?
DOSA should be made ON on the trunk/s. For more details, please refer section DOSA.
No other special command is required to use this facility.
However it is advisable to change the password for all the virtual stations to avoid any unauthorized use.
Use following command to change virtual station password:
306-Virtual Station-Virtual Station Password
Where,
Virtual Station is from 3900 to 3979.
Virtual Station Password is maximum upto 4-digits.
Example:
To change the password of virtual station 3900 to 8085.
306-3900-8085
PROTON 206/308 V1 System Manual 83
Important Point:
Maximum 80 virtual stations are possible.
Voice Mail Integration
Whats this?
Any VMS/Auto-Attendant can be integrated with a PBX. However this integration works well if the exchange of
information between the two is perfect. Generally, this integration works on two protocols: Tone Sensing and
Gateway. Tone Sensing relies on sensing of various Call Progress tones. Gateway uses DTMF digits to signify
various Call Progress events. Gateway is a PBX feature that is used by VMS/Auto-Attendant for a firm
integration. PROTON 206/308 provides this Gateway.
How to connect a VMS/Auto-Attendant to a PBX?
The port of VMS/Auto-Attendant should be connected to the station port of the PBX using a single pair
telephone cable. The figure given below shows connection of a VMS with a PBX where only two VMS ports are
interfaced with the PBX.
How it works?
As shown in the figure, VMS is connected on two stations of the PBX. If all the calls are to be routed through
VMS, the PBX should be programmed such that all the incoming calls land on VMS. Alternatively, PBX
should be programmed such that incoming calls land on other stations.
When an incoming call lands on the VMS, the VMS processes the call and guides the caller to reach the
desired station.
As stated earlier, integration of PBX with VMS or an Auto-Attendant works on two protocols viz.Tone Sensing
and Gateway.
Tone Sensing relies on sensing of various Call Progress tones. For example, when a VMS is interfaced with
the PBX, it senses the incoming ring and answers the call. It prompts the caller to dial an station number,
subsequently senses the dialed station number, keeps the caller on hold and dials the station number of
the PBX where the call is to be diverted. Then the VMS waits for the ring back tone. It first senses the ring
back tone and then waits for it to stop. As soon as the ring back tone stops the VMS transfers the call to the
dialed station number. All this process involves sensing of various tones like ring back tone, hold tone, etc.
and hence is commonly called tone sensing. However this method is not accurate.
To overcome this problem, Matrix PBXs (PROTON-206/PROTON-308) offers Gateway feature. However, for
latest knowledge on which model provides this feature, please call our channel partner or the Matrix Support
desk.
Gateway uses DTMF digits to signify various Call Progress events. With Gateway mode, in the above
example when the VMS receives an incoming call, it answers the call. Then it prompts the caller to dial an
station number. It senses the dialed station number, keeps the caller on hold and dials the station number of
the PBX where the call is to be diverted. On successful receipt of the dialed station number, the PBX sends
a defined code (signifying ring back tone) to the VMS. Depending upon the transfer type set for the VMS, it
either transfers the call or waits for the called party to respond. In the latter case, when the called party
answers the call, the PBX again sends a defined code (signifying successful speech connection). The VMS
detects this code and transfers the call to the dialed station.
84 PROTON 206/308 V1 System Manual
Since codes (defined string of characters) are used for the transfer of information, this method is very much
reliable and near to perfect.
Table given below shows various call progress events:
The PROTON 206/308 offers two features associated with VMS integration viz. Message Wait and
Conversation Recording. Please refer Message Wait and Conversation Recording for more details.
How to program?
Step 1: Define a station port as VMS port using command 393.
Step 2: Group all the VMS ports in one group using command 251.
Step 1
Use following command to define station port as VMS port:
393-Station-Code
Where,
Station is from 21 to 28.
By default, Station Port as VMS port is 0.
Step 2
Use following command to group all the VMS ports in one group (Pilot Group 9):
251-9-Station1-Station2-..-Station8
Where,
Station1, Station2, , Station8 is from 21 to 28 to which the VMS is connected.
Use # to terminate the command if less than 8 stations are to be programmed in the group.
Example:
Program the PROTON 206/308 for following constraints:
Two ports of VMS are connected to station 27 and 28 of the PROTON 206/308.
Use following command to define station 27 and 28 as VMS port:
393-27-1
393-28-1

Walk-In Class of Service
Whats this?
A station user can use his toll control from any station.
This feature is very useful for managers when they move away from their seat. Normally they have highest-
level toll control. Now when they go on the shop-floor (where the Toll Control is normally of low level) and if
they wish to use their Toll Control, this feature comes to their help. Using this feature, they can make calls as
per their Toll Control from any station. This facility is password protected hence its misuse can be avoided.
How to use it?
Example:
Station user 23 who is allowed 95 calls is at station 25 who is denied 95 calls. Station user 23 wants to make 95
calls from station 25. To accomplish this station user 23 should use Walk in Class of Service from station 25.
Important Points:
Only one call is allowed at a time using this feature. i.e. to make two calls one after the other, you will have to
dial the code to make first call and then again to make second call.
Walk-In Class of Service is allowed to all the station.
Walk-In Class of Service is not allowed with default dynamic lock password.
