PBX: Call Control
The CommuniGate Pro Signal component can use Automated Rules
to process calls and other Signals.
If the Administrator granted you a proper right, you can create and modify Signal Processing Rules for your Account.
To simplify this process, the WebUser Interface and XIMSS clients
allow you to set so-called Simplified Rules. The Simplified Rules have predefined conditions and actions, and you simply
enable or disable them, and provide some basic parameters.
This section explains how you can set your Simplified Signal Rules using the "stock" WebUser Interface. To set these
Rules, log into your Account using the WebUser Interface and open the Call Control page.
You need to specify "addresses" to tell your Automated Rules where to send the call to.
You can specify an address as:
- a simple name or a number (in this case, this address will be interpreted as an address in your Domain),
- a fully-qualified addresses (name@domainName),
- a complete SIP URI (such as <sip:name@domainName;parameters>)
You can specify several addresses if you separate them using the comma (,) symbols.
You can direct a call to an application, using the application name prefixed with the
hash (#) symbol as an address (#applicationName).
The following section specifies the most popular PBX functions and explains how these
functions are implemented in the CommuniGate Pro environment.
- If this option is selected, then the voicemail application will be started after the specified period of time, or
immediately, if your Account has no registered device.
- On Busy
- If this option is selected, then the voicemail application will be started if any of your devices return the "busy" (486)
or "busy everywhere/DND" (600) or "Declined" (603) code.
- On Error
- If this option is selected, then the voicemail application will be started if the call fails for any reason other than
"no answer", "no response", "busy", "busy everywhere", "declined".
See the Voice Mail section to learn how the Voice Mail application works.
You can configure your Account to ring additional devices, persons, or applications.
- Simultaneous Ringing
- When this option is enabled, the incoming calls causes your registered devices to ring. If you do not answer
for the specified period of time, the call is "forked" to some other address (device, person, application), while
your devices continue to ring. The call is connected to any device that answers it, and at this moment calls to
all other devices are canceled.
- Use this option to specify for how long the system will ring your own devices before it starts to "fork" to other addresses.
- Fork to:
- Specify one or several phone numbers or E-mail addresses to direct the incoming call to.
You can use this feature to "fork" your calls to your mobile phone, to your assistant, etc.
If your Account has no registered device, and this option is enabled, the call is immediately "forked" to the specified addresses.
You can configure your Account to redirect or reject incoming calls based on certain conditions.
