Configuring outbound call routing consists of instructing Office Communications Server how to route calls from Enterprise Voice users to phone numbers on the public switched telephone network (PSTN) or a Private Branch Exchange (PBX). These instructions are embodied in an Enterprise Voice Route. An Enterprise Voice Route consists of:
- A unique name and optional description that identify and
describe the route.
- One or more regular expressions that specify target phone
numbers that can use this route. Numbers that do not match the
pattern of the target number cannot use this route.
- One or more phone usage records that must be present in a
caller's voice policy in order for that caller to place calls to
target phone numbers associated with this route. If a user's voice
policy does not include a phone usage record associated with this
route, the user is not authorized to place calls to those numbers.
- One or more media gateways that are to be used for this route.
For detailed information about planning call routes, see inthe Planning and Architecture documentation.
