New Zealand Telecom Network
The following is a list of warnings applicable when this equipment is connected to
the New Zealand Telecom Network:
The grant of a Telepermit for any item of terminal equipment indicates only that
Telecom has accepted that the item complies with minimum conditions for
connection to its network. It indicates no endorsement of the product by Telecom,
nor does it provide any sort of warranty. Above all, it provides no assurance that
any item will work correctly in all respects with another item of Telepermitted
equipment of a different make or model, nor does it imply that any product is
compatible with all of Telecom's network services.
Reverse Numbering (decadic signalling)
Decadic signalling should not be used as it is being progressively phased out of
the network. DTMF dialling is 100% available and it should always be used.
Line Grabbing Equipment
This equipment is set up to carry out test calls at pre-determined times. Such test
calls will interrupt any other calls that may be set up on the line at the same time.
The timing set for such test calls should be discussed with the installer. The timing
set for test calls from this equipment may be subject to 'drift'. If this proves to be
inconvenient and your calls are interrupted, then the problem of timing should be
discussed with the equipment installer. The matter should NOT be reported as a
fault to Telecom Faults Service.
D.C. Line Feed to Other Devices
During dialling, this device unit does not provide DC voltage to the series port
connection and this may cause loss of memory functions for the terminal devices
(local telephone) connected to T-1, R-1.
General Operation (Ringer Sensitivity and Loading).
This device only responds to Distinctive Alert cadences DA1 and DA2.
