The System Speed Calling feature provides administrators the capability to create centralized speed calling lists that are available to an entire business group.
Lotus Sametime Unified Telephony supports up 10,000 system speed calling lists with a combined total of one million entries. For each business group two lists can be assigned at the same time (out of the 10 available lists), with up to 1000 entries per list. Each one of the two lists is accessed through an access code (e.g. System Speed 1 and System Speed 2).
A system speed calling list entry can contain up to 30 characters, which can be a combination of digits, the pound (#), and the asterisk (*). Because of this, a list entry can contain access codes and account codes, in addition to the dialed party number itself.
The Lotus Sametime Unified Telephony-based 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.
To dial a system speed calling list entry, the subscriber can use two ways:
Direct access by the access code associated with System Speed 1 or System Speed 2, followed by the speed list entry number.
The entry number can range from 0 to 999; it can consist of one, two, or three digits.
Suffix dialing is also allowed after the “#” character, in the case that a List Entry Data includes only part of the DN. For example, if a List Entry Data includes an Office Code, a subscriber can dial System Speed 1 (or 2) access code, followed by the List Entry ID, followed by “#”, followed by the remaining digits (eg. DN's extension).
By entering redial or selected dialing key set up for System Speed 1 or System Speed 2 (if present), followed by the speed list entry number.
After selecting list entry the subscriber can select Dial
or wait the number is automatically dialed after a 4-second timeout expires.
Speed calling entries also support suffix dialing. In this case the subscriber is prompted to enter a PIN after Lotus Sametime Unified Telephony executes the speed calling entry.
The feature system speed calling is sometimes known as BG speed dial.
The optiPoint 410 S and optiPoint 420 S also provide a functional interface that permits the subscriber to press a function key that presents a menu of available indexed numbers. When one is selected, the number is immediately dialed.
SIP endpoints also have local features that simplify the dialing of frequently-used numbers.
