Conferencing Up to Three Guest Headsets

While on a call, you can subscribe up to three guest headsets to your USB adapter for conferencing. As you add headsets to the adapter, an additional headset icon will appear in the Plantronics Control Panel with a number from 1 to 3 indicating the number of guest headsets subscribed to the adapter.

Guests may conference in as described below:

1While you are on a call, place the guest’s headset into subscription mode.

2Short press (less than one second) the subscription button on the USB adapter. The USB adapter light will flash yellow and green.

3The USB adapter light will then turn solid yellow and you will hear a tone in the master headset indicating a guest wishes to join the call.

4If you press the call control button on the master headset within five seconds, the guest is joined to the call.

If you do not press the call control button within five seconds, the request to join the call is rejected and the guest will hear an error tone in their headset.

5Guests may leave the conference call by pressing their call control button.

When they do you will hear a single tone in the master headset as each guest leaves the call.

To see how many headsets are subscribed to the adapter, refer to the lower left-handcorner of the Plantronics Control Panel. The first headset is the master headset and the number inside the next headset is the number of guest headsets subscribed to the adapter. The examples below show 1, then 2, then 3 guest headsets subscribed to the adapter in addition to the master headset.

Range

The Savi W410/W420 is supplied with high range set as the default. Range can be minimized to help with PC buzzing, improve user density, or restrict range of users.

To change the Range default in the software, go to : Start > Programs > Plantronics > Plantronics Control Panel > Device Settings – USB adapter. You can also change the range setting by holding in the subscription button of the USB adapter for three seconds while it is in an idle state. The USB adapter light will flash green for high range, yellow for medium range and red for low range.

When Range is set to HIGH a user will have up to 300 feet of range. When Range is set to MEDIUM a user will have up to 150 feet of range. When Range is set to LOW a user will have up to 50 feet of range.

Auto Answer

The Savi W410/W420 is supplied with auto answer NOT SELECTED as the default. Auto answer saves the user a button press to establish the radio link between headset and adapter.

When auto answer is set to NOT SELECTED you must press the headset call control button to answer an incoming call. When Auto Answer is set to SELECTED an incoming call will be answered when the headset is removed from the charge cradle.

To change the default, go to: Start > Programs > Plantronics > Plantronics Control Panel > Device Settings – USB adapter.

PC Audio Bandwidth

The Savi W410/W420 is supplied with narrowband audio as the default. Wideband audio delivers heightened speech clarity and life-likefidelity. However, wideband audio consumes more battery power and has more stringent access criteria which reduces the number of systems that can be deployed in a small area. All PCs support wideband audio.

Plantronics Savi User Guide

To change the PC Audio Bandwidth default in the software, go to: Start > Programs > Plantronics > Plantronics Control Panel > Device Settings – USB adapter. You also can toggle between narrowband and wideband audio by doing a short press (less than one second) followed by a long press (more than three

seconds) on the USB adapter subscription button while it is in an idle state. The USB adapter light will flash red for four seconds upon entering narrowband mode and flash green for four seconds upon entering wideband mode. When switching between narrowband and wideband audio, you must re-establishthe audio link for the changes to take effect.

Ring Both Headset and PC

This parameter gives you the option to have the PC ringtone played on both the headset as well as the PC speaker.

When this parameter is selected, the PC ringtone will be heard on both the PC speaker as well as the headset.

When this parameter is not selected, the PC ringtone will only be heard on either the headset or the PC speaker based on how the PC audio has been set up.

Microsoft OC/Lync Dial-toneEnabled

If this feature is selected, when a PC radio link is established, Microsoft OC/Lync will assume the user is trying to place a VoIP call and provide a dial tone.

If this feature is not selected, when a PC radio link is established, Microsoft OC/Lync will sit idle.

Audio Sensing Enabled

Audio Sensing is a special feature supported by Plantronics wireless devices that can detect an audio signal at the USB port and automatically establish a PC radio link between the USB adapter and wireless headset without the user having to press the PC call control button. If the parameter “Microsoft OC/Lync Dial-toneEnabled” is selected, then every time a PC radio link is established the Microsoft OC/Lync dial tone will be heard. However, the user may have pressed the PC call control button

to listen to music, etc., and does not want to hear the dial-tone.In this case, if the user selects the “Audio Sensing Enabled” parameter, the radio link will be established automatically when any PC audio is detected at the USB port, thus eliminating the need for the user to press the PC call control button.

Maintain Headset to PC Link

This parameter forces the radio link to the PC to stay active even after the call has ended. This can eliminate the need to re-establishthe radio link when switching between PC audio applications.
