The Station Speed Calling feature provides subscribers the capability to place frequently dialed numbers in a speed calling list for personal use only, or to share with others. This feature can be provisioned at the business group level with a denied option at the subscriber level. The types of station speed calling are: One-digit and Two-digit station speed calling. The types differ in the calls to be placed in a repertory of frequently called numbers.
This feature can be provisioned at the business group level with a denied option at the subscriber level.
The feature supports two types of station speed calling:
One-digit station speed calling:
This feature allows a subscriber to place calls to a repertory of frequently called numbers by dialing a 1-digit speed calling code. Eight numbers can be placed in the list.
Two-digit station speed calling:
This feature allows a subscriber to place calls to a repertory of 30 frequently called numbers by dialing a 2-digit speed calling code.
The administrator provides the speed calling lists to a subscriber:
A private list is used by one subscriber, who can modify any entry.
A shared list is owned by one subscriber, but can be used by many subscribers. Only the owner can modify the list entries.
A subscriber can have both a one-digit and a two-digit list. They can both be private, or one can be private with the other one shared.
After activation of station speed calling the subscriber enters the number associated with the entry. Now the subscriber can select Dial
or the number is automatically dialed after a 4-second timeout expires.
Stations with speed calling should be given standard originating treatment up to the point where the first digit is collected.
Speed calling can be used any time dialing is appropriate. The speed calling entry must supply all dialing information, including applicable access codes.
The feature is sometimes known as speed dial.
SIP endpoints also have local features that simplify the dialing of frequently-used numbers.
