I need some help here on the express system with hunting. I need to be able to do parallel hunts without converting to SIP. Also, i cannot use the same extension on every phone due to complications of the system.
I need this feature in order for BLF to display properly.
7961's, 4 BLF speed dials on each phone, 2 CO lines to ring on each phone. When a user goes off hook, the BLF displays their status. When an incoming call from the PSTN arrives and is answered, the BLF does not work due to a different extension picking up the call. All phones have primary extensions on buttons 1 and 2, with an overlay of extension 350 (my fake parallel hunt group).
So the voice port would plar opx 350, which would ring every phone. If the voice port were to ring a hunt group, and all of the members were a part of the hunt group, the BLF would display properly due to their own extensions ringing.
Basically what am after is, can the system do the hunting via TCL script or something else. If it cannot, how complex would it be to run SIP/SCCP phones side by side. And a better question, is that possible? Thanks in advance. I appreciate any input on this matter.
Yes, you can use a TCL/IVR service I wrote for "blast calling":
Note: most applications can be achieved with shared DNs also, but due to the intricacies of that I understand the need for a such a service.
Hope this helps, please rate post if it does!
