Problem Details

Programming of the repeater.

System Requirements

Depending on the method used:

A. Kirk Service Tool

1) Repeater incl. PSU

2) Repeater Programming Kit (cable & splitter)

3) PC with serial port

4) Kirk Service Tool

B. without PC and Tools

1) Repeater incl. PSU

2) handset

Configuration

Method A – Service Tool

Download the Kirk Service Tool from http://downloads.polycom.com/voice/KIRK/Repeater/ServiceTool_4_19_6_35.zip and install the application.

Start the Service Tool and klick “help” in the menu bar.

Read the documentation carefully to avoid wrong setups and follow the instructions.

For repeaters used in multi cell systems, like IP1500 and IP1200 (multi cell) take a closer look at this point:

Repeater programming - system 1500 / 1.8GHz

You will need the following data for the setup:

1. System ARI

a. could be found on the info screen

2. ID of the base station/repeater to synchronize on

a. on the IP1500 the base station id belongs to the connected cable, check your wiring or use the handset deployment mode to gather this information

b. on the IP1200 check Configuration->DECT->Radio->Radio-ID

3. ID for the repeater itself

a. choose an id between 1 and 255, add a gap of 64 between sync id and repeater id to get faster handovers

The programming of repeaters used in single cell systems, like IP600 and IP1200 (single cell) take a closer look at this point:

Repeater programming - system 500 & KCS system

You will need the following data for the setup:

1. System ARI

a. could be found on the info screen

2. ID of the base station/repeater to synchronize on

a. on the IP600 the base station id is always 1

b. on the IP1200 check Configuration->DECT->Radio->Radio-ID

3. ID for the repeater itself

a. choose an id between 2 and 7

Method B – without PC

You can use these instructions for alternatively configuration method (if you do not have access to the tool and a PC)

1) Turn on the base station and a subscribed handset.

2) Turn on the Repeater (WRFP) for more than 1 second and less than 5 seconds (note 1). Turn off the WRFP and turn it on again. The WRFP is now in subscription mode. This is indicated by a flashing LED immediately after power is switched on. In this mode the WRFP is searching for a Fixed Part in subscription mode. This mode is active for maximum 5 minutes. If the subscription procedure is not completed within this time, the WRFP restarts in normal mode with previous subscription data.

3) (if the base station is an innovaphone IP1200: skip 3) and go to 4)) Start subscription mode in the base station. The usual procedure is pressing the button on the base station for some seconds. This is the mode normally used when subscribing a handset to the base station (note 2).

4) The WRFP is synchronised with a base station in subscription mode. This is indicated by a fast flashing LED.

5) Verify that the WRFP is synchronised with the requested base station. This is done by pressing the Hook-key or INT-key on the handset. The LED on the WRFP (visible at the front center of the WRFP) should light up steadily. If the LED does not light up after pressing the Hook-key or INT-key a few times, the WRFP is probably synchronised with another base station. If this is the case the subscription procedure has to be repeated from step 2.

6) Select Radio Part Number (RPN). Hook off and press a number on the handset in the range 000-250 (note 3). When the number is accepted by the WRFP this is acknowledged by the LED flashing the number of times corresponding to the digit. Digits may be entered several times. Only the last accepted digit is recorded.

If you are using more WRFPs on the same base station they must have different RPNs.

7) Accept subscription identities by hook off and pressing the *-key.When the key is accepted by the WRFP the LED indicates that the key is turned off for 2 seconds. Alternatively the subscription can be accepted by pressing the #-key (note 4).

8) The WRFP now restarts with the new subscription identities in normal mode. The LED is turned on steady for 5 seconds and the WRFP is then ready to use.


Note 1: In normal operation mode the LED will light up steadily for the first 5 seconds after powering up.

Afterwards the LED is flashing when the WRFP is un-synchronised and the LED becomes steady when synchronised to a base station.

Whenever a connection is established via the WRFP a short flash appears on the LED.


Note 2: Subscription mode is indicated by broadcasting wireless FP-Capabilities (bit a44=1)

Note 3: When the Base Station is a residential single Base Station the valid RPN is in the range 2 - 7. When the WRFP is used on the PBX or public system the RPN may be in the range 0 - 255. In this case the WRFP accepts up to 3 digits to be entered. The last 3 valid digits are recorded only. So: Single Cell installation: RPN: 2 - 7 (1 is the Base station); Multi-Cell Installation: RPN: 000 - 250.

Note 4: If the #-key is used to accept the subscription identities an inspection tone is enabled. The WRFP will then, when relaying connections, insert a short tone every 2 seconds in the audio path to Handsets. This feature can be used for inspection and verification of the WRFP placement. When the operation has been verified the inspection tone should be disabled. Performing step 2 only of the subscription procedure will disable the inspection tone. When the LED has started flashing in subscription mode, just turn off the WRFP and then on again. The WRFP is then back in normal mode without affecting the subscription identities and the inspection tone has been disabled.
