I am trying to set up some public phones in a site and would like to explore if it is possible to restrict the time of a connected call. This is to prevent users from making calls for too long a period.
Example, a user goes to the IP phone and makes a call. After 10 minutes, the call is forced to drop and another user can use the IP phone next.
Is there any available Cisco feature or 3rd party that has this?
I am really not aware if there is any such configuration parameter on CCM.
However I guess extension mobility can be used for this purpose.
You can have a profile configured with a generic user name and password for ex - guest, 1234.
Whenever a person is required to make a call, user will go to the public phone and login using this username and password. You can configure Maximum Login Time for Extension mobility to 10 minutes, after which the user will be logged out of the phone.
Not sure if an ongoing call would be disconnected. May be you'll have to check this in your lab or wait for other suggestions.
