This section describes the creation of a basic numbering plan using the Telephony Control Server Assistant tool.
- The first step in defining the subscribers within a Lotus Sametime Unified Telephony is defining a block (or blocks) of E.164 numbers for these subscribers. A given subscriber may or may not be reachable from the PSTN via a personal DID number. Regardless, every subscriber must have a number within the E.164 numbering plan. These numbers are assigned using Telephony Control Server Assistant. E.164 is the ITU-T document which defines the international public telecommunication numbering plan used in the PSTN.
- After the E.164 number blocks are defined for Lotus Sametime Unified Telephony, the definition of subscribers can begin. Before a subscriber line can be defined, the administrator must define at least one BG. Every subscriber line must be assigned to one (and only one) BG.
- Each BG must be assigned a default (common) numbering plan. The number plan must be given a name before the BG is defined, so that the assignment the numbering plan can be made as the BG is created. Whereas the global E.164 numbering plan can be used by any number of BGs, a BG-specific numbering plan cannot be shared between BGs.
If desired, the administrator can define additional unique numbering plans for the group. A single BG can utilize multiple numbering plans.
- Before the subscriber can be defined, the administrator must define a feature profile, which is the set of default features that each subscriber will be given.
Once the BG and associated feature profile and numbering plan have been defined and selected, subscribers (business group lines [BGLs]) can be created.
