A generic destination is a physical location in the telephone or IP network that contains a prioritized collection of routes that can be used to arrive at that destination. This is the starting point for finding a free trunk when allocating trunks for an outgoing call.
The generic destination table supports reaching the same E.164 destination code through different types of routes. This allows routing of calls to overflow among gateways and gatekeepers. This table is used for create, delete, and display operations on generic destinations.
Each destination points to the route list that contains the highest priority routes to that destination.
Once the subscriber has created and defined destinations in the Lotus Sametime Unified Telephony system, he/she can assign these destinations to E.164 DN (Directory Number) Codes. In addition, the subscriber can assign destinations to Carrier Routes, to associate the destinations with specific carriers.
