The Audible Ringing on Rollover Lines feature permits lines to audibly signal new incoming calls while the subscriber is active on the keyset. This feature is also known as rollover ringing.
For OpenStage or optiPoint keyset telephones, the system administrator specifies the following:
Whether the ringer option is enabled. Rollover ringing only applies to lines that have this option enabled - that is, rollover ringing only takes place if the applicable line otherwise rings when it is idle.
One of the following rollover ring options for each keyset:
No ring when active on the telephone
Alert ring when active on the telephone
Alert beep when active on the telephone
Standard ring when active on the telephone
The selected option applies to all line appearances on the keyset. The user controls the volume of the rollover ring. The rollover ring option is used by the telephone when any line appearance other than the one in use is in the ringing state. When the telephone is idle, normal ringing is applied.
If the user at an idle telephone answers one incoming call on a line appearance while other lines are still ringing, the ringing changes from normal ringing to rollover ringing. Likewise, if the user releases a call and returns the phone to idle while rollover ringing is active, it changes to normal ringing.
Rollover ring is not applied for lines that are set for alerting only. These lines do not ring even if the phone is idle.
