Lotus Sametime Unified Telephony can distinguish between OScAR-Pro ( Alarm and Response - Professional, formerly known as DAKS) and subscriber Intercom Calls. If an Intercom Call originates at OScAR-Pro, it shall be delivered to the idle called subscriber without restrictions. In particular, the called party's Community Group is ignored.
OScAR-Pro has a broadcast intercom feature, for example, to make an emergency announcement by invoking Two-way Intercom calls.
Future releases of OScAR-Pro will support One-way Intercom as well.
OScAR-Pro makes outgoing calls over SIP-Q to a pre-defined list of users. It is possible for OScAR-Pro to make a conference call, i.e., where two people are involved in the intercom call with OScAR-Pro.
OScAR-Pro plays an initial tone in-band to the called party equipment. A periodic tone can be provided by the terminating system. At the Telephony Control Server Assistant, the insertion interval can be set with the DAKS Periodic Tones system-wide property.
For details, please refer to the OScAR-Pro Documentation.
