Infrastructure of the Axxess

Our Inter-tel Axxess 7.0 Phone system server has the likeness of the PC, except the it is slightly larger. It has a motherboard with slots, a power supply, similar I/O ports like RS-232, DB-15, PS/2, RJ-11, VGA, and a parallel port. The system has 8 slots (1 – 7 and the eighth is for the systems CPU card). When we bought the system, it came with 6 cards (two DKSC16 cards, an OPC card, a LSC-D card, a EVMC card, a CPU64 card, and a power supply card).

The DKSC16 is a digital key set card with the ability to connect 16 stations. On the front of the card, it has a 50 pin amphenol port which a 25-PR CAT 3 is connected to. Only 32 out of the 50 wires are being using for the DKSC-16 card.

The LSC (which stands for Loop Start Card) is for the incoming and outgoing telephone lines on the trunk group. It has the ability for 4 lines in the trunk, but the LSC-D has the ability for 8 lines in the trunk group.

The OPC card is the options card, which has the ability to add some features like call holding music and caller-id.

The EVMC card is for the voice mail system and the CPU64 card is for where the system processing is done and has the ability to have up to 64 devices.

From the manual, we put the DKSC16 cards in slot 1 and slot 2, the OPC card in slot 3, the LSC card in slot 4, the EVMC card in slot 7 and the CPU64 in the CPU slot. In order to get the voice processor or voice mail system to work you need to connect one of the three RS232 ports to the EVMC card where is says on the EVMC card “RS232-C TO CPU” and PCM port on the EVMC card to the one on the CPU64 card. If the RS-232 ports (which are RJ-45 ports) are not connected the card, then On-Line LED would be blinking approximately at rate of two blinks a second.
