Outbound dialing rules and dial plans
Dialing rules and dial plans are device specific rules that are processed before a VoIP end point (desk phone or soft phone) sends the numbers dialed to InfoFlo Talk. Dial plans can be used to modify how a number is to be dialed, for instance adding a 9 in front of any 10 digit number to access an outside line. Depending on the hardware manufacturer of the VoIP endpoint, having no dialing rules can imply that digits are simply send out when clicking the call button or that no digits are sent when calling because no dialing rule has been matched. Also, some default dialing rules will allow 10 digit numbers but not a 3 digit extension to be dialed. If you purchased a Polycom phone from us then we have pre-programmed all required dialing rules and the phone is ready for use as soon as its plugged in. Below is an example of what dialing rules config looks like on a Polycom VVX phone, as mentioned above these setting do differ by manufacturer. Please refer to phone specific user guide for more details.
