Feature Overview

In today’s business world, fixed-mobile convergence (FMC) isn’t a luxury — it’s a necessity.
With more and more employees working out of the office, it’s becoming increasingly difficult for customers and colleagues to reach these remote workers given the number of different devices and numbers (mobile, office, home) they may be using. In such a disjointed environment, there is a need for a solution that makes communications as seamless as possible — whether an employee is working from the office, on the road or at home.

Multiple Call Forwarding options allow users to route calls to a desired location depending on certain criteria. Below are options that one can use to meet the situation at hand.

Call Forward Always – Enables a user to redirect all incoming calls to another phone number. Users have the option to activate and deactivate the service by dialing a feature access code or configuring the service via their web interface. If activated, a user must specify the forwarding number. An optional status indicator is available to identify whether this service is enabled.

  1. Caller dials the number to the users office phone
  2. The Placetel UC-One network receives the call and begins the routing process
  3. The Placetel UC-One network confirms if the user has activated Call Forward Always
  4. Call is routed directly to the phone number defined by the user for Call Forward Always

Call Forward Busy – Enables a user to redirect calls to another destination when an incoming call encounters a busy condition. This service is set as a default to forward to the user’s voicemail. Users have the option to activate and deactivate the service by dialing a feature access code or configuring the service via their web interface. If activated, a user must specify the forwarding number.

  1. Caller dials the number to the user’s office phone
  2. The Placetel UC-One network receives the call and begins the routing process
  3. The Placetel UC-One network confirms that the user’s office phone is currently in use
  4. The Placetel UC-One network confirms that the user has activated the Call Forward Busy feature and the call is routed directly to the phone number defined by the user

Call Forward No Answer – Enables a user to redirect calls to another destination when an incoming call is not answered within a specified number of rings. This service is set as a default to forward to the user’s voicemail. Users have the option to activate and deactivate the service by dialing a feature access code or configuring the service via their web interface. If activated, a user must specify the forwarding number and the number of rings before forwarding.

  1. Caller dials the number to the user’s office phone
  2. The Placetel UC-One network receives the call and begins the routing process
  3. The Placetel UC-One network sends the call to the user’s office phone. If the call is unanswered after a defined number of rings (defined by the user) then the Placetel UCOne network confirms the Call Forward No Answer settings
  4. Once the defined number of rings is met and the feature is confirmed the Placetel UC-One network will automatically forward the call to the defined phone number
