Interactive Voice Response¶
The IVR (Interactive Voice Response) (or Phone Tree) provides callers with a menu and options for call routing.
Callers dial-in and select an option on the number pad that maps to an extension for a specific department or group within the company.
These extensions route to different Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) addresses, Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) numbers, internal extension numbers, other IVRs, conference bridges, groups, and Class 5 applications.
When you create an IVR, you specify a 1:1 mapping for all the possible keys on the keypad.
