Parking calls (70) to LOTS (71, 72, 73) (using) a mix of Yealink & Fanvil IP endpoints


(sawgood1000) #1

I know to: “ask Yealink” (in progress), but I want to at least run this by people here:

We have a working SangomaOS PBX (installed from .ISO)
The system is working as expected.
We have setup parking (70), and we have (3) parking lots (71,72,73).

GOAL: When a call is PARKED and put in a LOT: have the IP endpoint’s button for the LOT (blink RED)
NOTE: Yealink phones go from solid green to solid red
NOTE: Fanvil phones go from solid green to blinking red


We have (8) phones (local) on the same LAN as the PBX

4 of the phones are: Yealink SIP-T29G
4 of the phones are: Fanvil X6u


We have working parking BLF/DSS keys for the (3) parking lots on all (8) phones

Example:
Yealink (button 5) = BLF / 71 (button is solid GREEN)
Yealink (button 5) = BLF / 72 (button is solid GREEN)
Yealink (button 5) = BLF / 73 (button is solid GREEN)

Example:
Fanvil (button 1) = BLF / 71 (button is solid GREEN)
Fanvil (button 1) = BLF / 72 (button is solid GREEN)
Fanvil (button 1) = BLF / 73 (button is solid GREEN)


When staff PARKS a call to (70) and it is assigned to lot (71):

Yealink phone button for (71) goes from solid GREEN (to) solid RED
Fanvil phone button for (71) goes from solid GREEN (to) blinking RED

No GUI options are available on Yealink phones (to setup what state lights can be in)
NOTE: Only BLF MODE exists (and) none of the options other than mode 1 work

Direct GUI options are available on Fanvil phones (to setup) what state lights can be in
NOTE: The default option for ‘parked’ calls (using the drop down) is to: “blink RED”


Question:
How can we get Yealink phones to “blink” RED (vs) solid RED for “parking lot calls”?

Yealink has no such function in their BLF LED modes

See page 456

The only phone I’m aware of that allows an admin to control the BLF LED behavior is the Sangoma D series (not S series) Phones.

Thanks for your thoughts!

We have a blinking RED BLF light (for parked calls) = when we use Fanvil phones.
This is the default for Fanvil, and in the UI of the phone is a drop-down (to pick) what you would like the buttons to do (blink, solid, etc).

Too bad Yealink does not want to do this.
I’ve tried for years to mention this to them.
