Busy Lamp Field (BLF) Indicators


Status indicators which show the status of a programmable buttons associated feature or function.


Indication of when a button or associated feature is active.


Avaya digital and IP phones have programmable buttons which can be assigned to various features. When those buttons include some form of BLF indicator, the button can also be used to indicate when the feature is active. For example, a button associated with another user will indicate when that user is active on a call. A button associated with a group will indicate when the group has calls waiting to be answered.

The directory entries in one-X Portal for IP Office and the speed dial icons within the IP Office Phone Manager and SoftConsole applications also act as BLF's. When the icons are associated with internal users, the icons will change to indicate the current status of the users.

one-X Portal for IP Office shows these conditions:






The normal state for a user showing that their work extension is not in use.



The normal state for a user showing that their work extension is currently on a call.

Logged Out


The user has logged out from their phone. Calls to them will most likely go to voicemail if available.



This icon is used when the status is not known.
