Receiving and Making Calls with Video Addresses Outside Your Company Network

 

It’s really simple to search all the Meeting rooms in your company through the Rooms # page, or view individual contacts via the Contacts page. However, in addition you have the capability to dial out to, as well receive calls from, video addresses outside of your company network.

Using the app you can call any external video address that uses standards-based SIP/H.323 video protocols. But just to stop any confusion and maintain privacy, this service is intended for contacting people you’re already familiar with, so their full video address is required in order for you to call them. Your external contact should share this with you before trying to contact them.

Making Outgoing Calls

Once you have the complete video address of the person or meeting room you would like to call you should type this into the Search field:

  • for Android you can do this from any page in the app
  • for iOS, you can open the Contacts page first and then type the address
  • If you type only a partial address your search will display No results found. You must enter the full video address

As soon as you’ve typed out the full address, if the contact uses our service but is outside your network, they will be displayed underneath the search field.

A green light next to the contact indicates your in luck and they’re online at the moment!

 

Simply tap on the contact to take you through to the dialing screen:

  • you now have the option to place a video call by tapping the Video icon
  • or use audio-only data calling by tapping the Phone icon
