Feature Access Codes enable subscribers to control Mobility Features from their endpoints. A Feature Access Code can either be dialed or it can be assigned to a function key on the subscribers' phones, providing seamless access to server-side features.
The required access codes are usually created during the initial installation of the Lotus Sametime Unified Telephony system; however, additional codes can be added at any time.
Technically, a Feature Access Code is a special instance of a PAC (Prefix Access Code), defining a sequence of keys (0-9, #, *) that enable callers to invoke a specific server-side feature. It can be created either globally (i.e. in the Global Numbering Plan) or locally (i.e. in a Private Numbering Plan). In Lotus Sametime Unified Telephony Assistant such a "Feature PAC" has to be created with
Prefix Type: Vertical Service
Nature of Address: Unknown
Destination Type: Service
and one of the available Service destinations.
In a multiple branch environment it is strongly recommended that the PACs (Prefix Access Codes) for remotely accessible services such as Simultaneous Ringing are the same for all NPs (Numbering Plans). Otherwise the remote access DNs for each NP must be provisioned to ensure that the call arrives from the PSTN via a gateway in the same NP.
