Meeting Room PIN in Dial String

Hi everyone,

We are wanting to enforce PINs for dialing in to meeting rooms, however for external users we would like the ability for this PIN to be in the dial string so they do not need to use a keypad to enter in DTMF tones. For example, if a user is to dial in to meeting 1111 and use a pin of 9999 it would be great if they could use something like 1111*9999#@10.11.12.13.

 

Is this possible?

 

We are utlising a VCS-Control and VCS-ExpressWay with a 8510 MSE MCU.

 

Thanks,

Mark

Currently it's not possible

Currently it's not possible to do what you're looking for, endpoints don't know how to call or handle that type of dial string.  There is another discussion of the same question that confirms it here: dialing-codian-mcu-password.  I've tried it myself just now various different methods that I could think of, and none worked.

The main issue is that there

The main issue is that there is not a standard for doing so, so even if one endpoint or device type supports it a different one might use different strings or does not support it at all.

 

If its only a hand full of systems on the outside, maybe using TMS to book conferences and dial them up can be a workaround. Maybe pre configured participants as well, or simply get the remote users to enter the pin ;-)

As the other two have posted,

As the other two have posted, there is no standard for this, nor any way I've seen on any equipment to make this happen.

Automatically including the PIN also seems to defeat the purpose of having one in the first place.  Perhaps you only need to really have one for the chairperson, and not for all the normal participants?

Alternately, you could have different "rooms" for Internal and External uses, where the Internal ones required PINs, and the Externals don't.

Anopther option is that you could also have the External participants join to a concierge type room where an operator could then move them to the desired conference.

Or you could have someone dial-out from the MCU to the external participant(s) rather than them dialling in.

There are lots of options available as a workaround to what you're trying to achieve, you'll just need to work out which one works for you and your users.
