The ACR (Anonymous Call Rejection ) feature provides subscribers the capability to reject calls from parties who have a privacy feature active (such as caller ID blocking) that prevents the delivery of the calling number to the called party.
The administrator specifies whether the feature is always active, or if the subscriber is permitted to activate and deactivate it.
When anonymous call rejection is activated, Lotus Sametime Unified Telephony checks incoming calls to determine if the presentation of the calling party's DN is allowed. This check is performed regardless of whether the subscriber's extension is offhook or idle.
If presentation is allowed or if the presentation status is unavailable:
Lotus Sametime Unified Telephony completes the call. Screening of calls, however, may depend on the precedence of other features that a called party has active on the line.
If presentation is restricted:
Lotus Sametime Unified Telephony does not complete the call and the subscriber does not receive alerting for the call. Instead, the caller hears a denial announcement that informs the calling party that the system cannot accept the call unless the calling party information is made public. If the calling party does not hang up within 10 to 12 seconds of completion of the announcement, the system automatically disconnects the call.
Different anonymous call rejection traffic measurements are maintained on a per-SPCS basis.
Maintenance measurements can be available on demand for number of incoming calls, number of activations and number of deactivations.
Call detail recording (CDR) is provided.
The Anonymous Call Rejection feature is known as anonymous caller rejection.
