Push to Talk allows users to leverage their SIP Phones as intercoms. By enabling a user to directly contact another extension – and causing the called station to answer automatically, Push To Talk delivers a convenient intercom leveraging equipment already in place.
To allow for customization of the feature, administrators can define white/black lists, as well as define if calls established using Push To Talk are One way or Two Way. To invoke a Push to Talk call, users simply need to off hook their phone (get dial tone), then enter *50, then the extension of the user being called.
To leverage Push to Talk:
- Users must be assigned to an Executive, RetailLine, or Hosted HQ station
- Push To Talk feature must be configured for the user
