Question: CO Line Functionality

Recommended Posts



I was just wondering if the Shared Line/ co line functionality will be making a return in the new version 62?


I remember reading in one of the blog posts that the shared line will cease to exist in version 60+, but i can see from the new button list in version 61 that there is allocation for co lines.


Provisioned a 320 with the buttons being co lines and accounts co1, co2, co3...etc Similar to how it's described in your wiki: https://doc.vodia.com/trunk_colines, but doesn't work like the older versions. Just to recap, in the past people would press a shared line and the button lit up on every phone to indicate the line is in use. On version 61.1 the button provisions it as a BLF that enables monitoring, but  the line can't be selected so this does not have much usage. The value is provisioned as sip:co1@test@testdomain;user=phone>|*87.


I'm guessing the value is provisioned in such a fashion to push for the usage of park orbits.


Thank you

Well lets face it - shared lines are a dinosaur like like the prefix that got killed with Kari's law this year. There is simply no such thing as a line in the world of SIP trunks. We still have something that shows the state of a CO line account, but it is not the same like a original TDM CO line. It would be much easier to just use a park orbit or use the hold/transfer features that practically every VoIP phones offers today. We had many clients that came from CO-line world and they did not cry a single tear dropping the concept and more on to park orbits or handling the calls locally on their phones.
