So I have a seemingly stupid question; before I start selling this thing everywhere, I was wonering what the pbxnsip definition is of "Intercom"... On all the TDM systems I have sold, "Intercom" is defined as a call from internal phone to internal phone. "Hands-Free" or "Voice-Call" is defined as a call from internal phone to internal phone, without the recipient having to physically touch the phone....

 

I was wondering in pbxnsip, which one is defined as wich, as I have a client who wants to test a system at a tiny branch office, but the system is fairly useless as the base license does not include intercom; ie calls from extension to extension.... hmmmm

For pbxnsip, "intercom" means extension calling without having the other party picking up the call. That means the call immediately gets connected, it is two-way audio. Typical scenario is the James Bond ordering the 3 PM tea from Mrs. Monneypenny. "Monneypenny, where is my tea?" - "Immediately, Mr. Bond".

 

It depends a little bit on the handset type if that works or not. Not all SIP phones support this.

That is one of the best answers I have ever gotten.... I will have to get started with pbxnsip right away then....

 

Thanks Guys!
