1. Protocol Selection - Circuit type, Channel type, Protocol Type 2. Phone Numbers - Phone numbers for call routing 3. Channel and Path Confirmation - Path confirmation type, Tone levels, Switch and Terminating Side variances

4. Partition and Timing - Scripts to run on each group, and Call time parameters5. Starting and Stopping a TestAnalyze Assure AccelerateTM

Addresses of channels associated with selected tab Available for subscriber, exchange, or switch channels One phone number is associated with each channel on Abacus 5000 Sequential, 4155551001 Destination numbers that will be dialed by the associated channels Available for subscriber or exchange channels One phone number is associated with each channel on Abacus 5000 File, Trunkgateway.phn (Phone Book)25

External Phone Numbers

Step 2A. Phone Numbers: PRI T1 Ex Continued1. Select Phone Book type:Sequential or File

Sequential Phone Numbers -- specify start numberFile --Used for nonsequential phone numbers, multiple area code, special IP Addressing.

2. Defines how each number appliesto each line

Each channel Separate phone number for each Channel Each Circuit Same phone number for entire circuit (Hunt Group)

3. Put checkmark if duplicate phonenumbers allowed in files (e.g., for ACD groups)
