IP Centrex Features
Answer Confirmation
Answer Confirmation allows the user to enable answer validation for all Simultaneous and
Sequential features. The feature is automatically added to all user packages and the default
provision setting is “off”; therefore, you must manually turn it on to activate. It is used in
conjunction with Simultaneous Ring or Sequential Ring features.
When you turn it on and receive a simultaneous ring or sequential ring to a device you have
configured, the caller hears the message, “please push any key to continue this call”. This
message notifies you that you are about to answer an IP Centrex business call. If you press any
key, you are connected to the caller. If you hang up the call without pressing a DTMF key, the call
is disconnected. (Note: This is useful to avoid a mobile phone answering with voicemail.)

to or from another user in the same group, by entering the assigned

only that one call. When a user barges in on an answered call, the call
becomes a three-way call and the user who barged in becomes the

call. Users can prevent having their calls being barged in on by using
the Barge-in Exempt user service.

Party Voice Mail Support service must be assigned to the user's group.
