Automatic Disaster Recovery Routing is a function that allows the inbound call platform to place the call to alternative destination/s number/s, this works effectively on isdn2 or isdn30, (including DDIs), PSTN or standard single or multi-line/s.
This clever pre-line test (perfect for anticipating & automatically reacting to a line fault/disaster) is not 100% going to detect every fault unfortunately so therefore a separate disaster recovery plan is still required, which can be applied manually once the fault is identified. Some types of line faults that cannot be detected by this line test feature.
This is a very useful feature if used correctly that actually detect certain line faults (before placing the call to that destination line/number) & therefore this pre-test line response by the platform can then have rules set applied to instruct the routing of calls to the virtual number, so that the call can be better placed somewhere else in the event of receiving this response. This is then an automatic response built in to the inbound call plan. In a similar way you can set the complex plans to route calls elsewhere on the event the first destination is engaged or unanswered. This is either after a number of rings or after a timed period.
This useful pre-line fault test feature can be used in conjunction with:
Or many other inbound features to achieve the full inbound call control you require.It is always better to make your Disaster recovery on-net i.e on the actual phone number, rather than building any plan on your phone system only.
