Direct Inward Station Dialing

Direct inward station dialing (DISD) allows an external party to call an intercom station directly, with no assistance from the attendant. The attendant must provide callers with the following information.

Give the caller a DISD line number the extension number associated with the station desired. When a caller makes a DISD call from an outside line, the system will answer with a continuous dial tone. At this point the caller should enter the extension number.

If the station is idle, the called station rings. If another station user answers the call, the caller may ask to be transferred to the desired station. If ringing stops and the dial tone sounds again, the caller may dial another extension. If the called station is busy, the call is placed on hold and camped-on at the busy station. If the call is not answered within a specified time frame, the busy tone is given, followed by a DISD dial tone. The caller may be returned to the DISD dial tone a total of three times and then the line is dropped.

If the called station is busy and is part of a hunt group, the caller is routed to an idle station in the hunt group when available. If an invalid extension number is dialed, an error tone sounds and the DISD dial tone is returned. If the extension number is not dialed within the programmed dial time limit, the call is routed to the DISD assist station if available. Otherwise, the line is dropped.
