Dial Patterns of Outbound Route
To make outbound calls from the PBX, users need to dial according to dial pattern settings of the outbound routes.
A dial pattern is a unique set of digits that will select this route and send the call to the designated trunks.
|Pattern ||Description |
|Refers to any digit between 0 and 9. |
|Refers to any digit between 2 and 9. |
|[###] || |
Refers to any digit in the brackets, for example  is 1 OR 2 OR 3.
Ranges of numbers can be specified with a dash ([136-8]) would match the numbers 1,3,6,7 and 8.
. matches one or more characters.
! is used to initiate call processing as soon as it can be determined that no other matches are possible.
|Refers to any digit between 1 and 9. |
The strip is an optional setting, it defines how many digits will be stripped from the front of the dialled number before the call is placed.
If you set Pattern as
9. and set Strip as
If a user wants to call number 1588902923, he/she should dial 91588902923. The PBX will strip one digit from the dialled number, and call the number 1588902923.
Prepend is an optional setting. The prepend will be added to the beginning of a successful match. If the dialled number matches the Pattern, then this will be prepended to the number before placing the call.
Example: If a trunk requires 10-digit dialling, but users are more comfortable with 7-digit dialling, this field could be used to prepend a 3-digit area code to all 7-digit phone numbers before the calls are placed.
