The Software for the Harris range of systems has a 3 section structure. Each having a well defined function within the system.

1. OPERATING SYSTEM - this is PROM based and supplies the basic telephony function of the switch. Thus, even if the Moves and Changes (MAC) processor and/or the CFP fail the system will still work as a basic PABX.

2. CUSTOMER CONFIGURATION - this runs the MAC processor. It is EEPROM based, configurable and is loaded from an IBM compatible P.C. The IBM compatible P.C. is owned by the customer. It must have at least 256K of RAM and the software can be supplied on S* or 31 inch floppy disc.

3. CUSTOMER FEATURE PACKAGE - this runs the Customer Features Processor (CFP). It is RAM based and can be loaded via tape or disc. If FP3 or FP5 it is installed and edited via the TTY. If FP6 or FP7 it is edited via an IBM compatible P.C.
