What is Student Services?

Overview

Student Services is an appl ication software pack age for the NEC Open Application
Interface (OAI) environment. It operates on an NEC User Application Processor
(UAP) system, in conjunction with an NEC PBX system.
The Student Services application is designed to meet th e needs of a student housing
facility. It provides a telephone system Administrators interface for feature and
operational scheduling of designated telephone stations and station groups.
The application updates st ation parameters directl y to the premises NEC PBX. The
PBX applies these parameters to the designated stations, providing telephone
service restrictions or service changes based on a defined schedule.
Application &
Functions
Often in a student housing environment, telephone service must be limited and
operational capabilities changed on a scheduled basis. Daily, weekly, and special
term scheduling may be required depending on the facility. Additionally, the
telephone privileges and scheduling may be different for select groups of users.
Student Services provi des a database f or station tele phone funct ions. The database
allows existing stations to be scheduled for special operation according to the
defined parameters of the schedule. Stations can also be grouped in a group
database where parameters can be defined and scheduled over the whole group.
Application
Components
The Student Services so ftware package is comprised of several internal
components that perform the primary application functions:
The Administrator component provides the system administrators inter-
face to Stude nt Services. The interface allows an administrator to add, de-
lete, and modify records in the Student Services databa se files. The inte rface
provides access to event scheduling and immediate event requests, along
with record printing and database find functions.
StationControl is an OAI component that uses PBX components to set
route restriction class, station forwarding, and service feature class. It com-
municates with the PBX and performs the specified actions.
The StopTalk component (also an OAI component) manages the termina-
tion of activ e cal l s when an event is started . It manag es the communication
between the va ri ous Stude nt Serv ices components and the PBX to invoke a
warning announcement to the callers and to activate call termination.
The Override OAI component provides a special function for the adminis-
trator. This function allows an administrator to make calls to stations that
have been restricted from receiving incoming calls by a Student Services
event (ov erriding t he ev ent restriction) . This can be useful in emergenc y and
special announcement situations.
