|Use Intercom to call any co-worker.|
Intercom gives extension users access to other extensions. This provides the system with complete internal calling capability.
Handsfree Answerback permits an extension user to respond to a voice-announced Intercom call by speaking toward the phone, without lifting the handset. Like Handsfree, this is a convenience for workers who don’t have a free hand to pick up the handset. Incoming Intercom calls alert with two beeps if the extension has Handsfree Answerback — a single beep if it does not.
Forced Intercom Ringing causes an Intercom call to ring the destination extension. You can enable Forced Intercom Ringing system-wide (for all extensions), or a user can dial a code to have their Intercom call ring the destination.
For more on setting up Handsfree Answerback and Forced Intercom Ringing, see Handsfree and Handsfree Answerback for more.
[2.18] An extension can have an Intercom Feature Key. The primary purpose of this key is to enable additional features on the Cordless Lite II and Cordless DECT telephones. The Intercom key allows the cordless user to pick up a call on Intercom Hold. It also allows the user to get Intercom dial tone if they have a Prime Line to an outside line.
