Q: I need to determine the available number of digital station ports in our organizations Siemens Hicom 300 phone system. How do I go about accomplishing this?
A: To determine the number of equipped digital ports, log-in to the Hicom 300 system and in direct AMO dialog type dis-bcsu:tbl,; jot down all the slmo and slmr addresses that have a “nom board” and “actual board” entry that match, with a “bd status” that equals “ready”.
Now type dis-sdsu:all,,pen,per3,x,y,z,; (where x is the node, y is the shelf and z is the slot of the address obtained from the list of hardware you retrieved with the bcsu command). This will show you the status of each channel.
- A status of nogen means the channel is free to be programmed.
- A status of ready indicates a channel programmed and inservice.
- Any other status should be investigated to determine if any channel is defective or has been deactivated.
Other status results will show if a phone has been unplugged, or if a fault in cable connectivity to your pbx has taken the phone out of service. Take note of the effected channels.
Determining the actual status of these phones and associated pbx address channels may add to your spares count. Note that the slmo board types have 24 channels each, while slmr board types have 16 channels. Please give us a call if you have any questions or need additional support determining the available number of digital station ports in your Siemens Hicom 300 phone system .
