Free Phone Number
The Free Phone Service (FPH) is based on the concept of reverse charging added with many new
features of useful capabilities. Users have to dial 11 (Eleven) digits number 1800 345 ABCD, (1800345 common prefix, ABCD unique last four digits). The phone line used for making such calls will not
be charged; instead the call charges will be billed against the company or individuals subscribing to
the FPH service. The FPH subscriber assigns actual phone lines to receive FPH calls and a routing
plan describing call routing based on origin of the call, time of the day, type of the day etc. For the
same FPH no. thus it is possible to assign several destination phone nos. It can handle much more
calls without any degradation in service.
Subscribing to an FPH number is very convenient as a first hand contact number and is very suitable for
obtaining general information, booking complaints etc. The service is popular with the business
community as by providing an FPH number an user with the casual interest can be provided with
relevant information about any product and services, or book an order – all without being burdened
by any phone call charges to be paid

company users are then included into the company’s PNP (Private Numbering Plan).
Multi-site management
The company may be a group located on several different sites: the VPN service makes it possible for each site to have its own Private
Numbering Plan, and calls between sites are considered as calls on private networks.
Private Numbering Plan
The Telecom Manager assigns private extensions to the site’s VPN users of the site users. Each VPN user can have more than one company line.
Thus, a VPN user can call another VPN user in the same company by simply dialing a unique reduced number of digits.
The Telecom Manager can define PABX (Private Automatic Branch Exchange) ranges or/and individual PABX extensions in a site. Private
extensions can be defined independently from of a PABX range.
The Private Numbering Plan may be either a structured or an unstructured PNP for all the sites of the group.
Preferred External Destination –
This feature allows a subscribing company to integrate non-VPN lines as preferred external destinations (for instance, partnerships, suppliers,
customers, etc) by defining Preferred External Destination (PED) numbers (also called ABD) in the site’s Private Numbering Plan of the site. A
PED number is associated with a complete public directory number (fixed or mobile) or a PABX range.
Group Hunting
The aim of Group Hunting is to manage the mobility of a VPN user by defining a list of numbers that, that can be called to reach the VPN user.
This feature allows routing incoming calls according to a sequential examination of the numbers in a Hunting List. It is activated either for
company incoming calls or for incoming calls from an outside company when a VPN user is busy, or does not reply, or is not reachable.
A default hunting list, including the four user’s four lines and the voice mail is used if no dedicated hunting list or hunting list was specified for
the VPN user
.

IN Call forwarding
Call forwarding is a routing feature managed dynamically by a given VPN user or operator when he/she wants to specify
an alternative destination to for reaching him/her. Call forwarding has the priority over Group Hunting. This means
that if a given VPN user activates call forwarding, the forwarded number is used to call him/her, even he/she has a
Hunting List.; Group Hunting is processed when call forwarding is not activated.
Call forwarding can be processed in mobile or fixed networks or in company PABXs.
There are two types of call forwarding:
Call Forwarding Conditional (CFC): on busy, no reply or not reachable conditions.
Call Forwarding Unconditional (CFU): no condition.
CFU overruling
This feature enables some privileged calling parties (e.g. secretary or family member) to overrule Call Forwarding
Unconditional (CFU) in order to call directly a given VPN user directly.
Voice mail management
Each VPN user can have a voice mail in the mobile or fixed network, or in the PABX. The voice mail can be used as a
final destination in the management of IN call forwarding or Hunting Lists.
Exception lists
This feature allows the screening of incoming and outgoing calls of company users based on two types of lists - named
called exception lists - containing “allowed” or “not allowed” numbers.
VPN lines
A VPN user can have more than one VPN line (e.g. PABX extension, mobile, a fixed phone in home etc). Up to four
company lines can be defined for each VPN user. Each line may have its own extension (unstructured numbering) or
may be identified by a line code before a unique extension (structured numbering).
In the framework of a structured numbering plan, this feature allows a given VPN user to call another VPN user by
indicating the called line. Thus, the call is routed according to the used line code directly to the line of the concerned
called party’s concerned line. If no line code is dialed, the default destination is used to route the call.

On-net and Off-net calls
On-net calls
are private calls made by VPN users to call other VPN users in the same group.
Off-net calls are calls made by VPN users towards the public network For making Off net calls PIN verification is
there.
On-site and Off-site calls
On-site call: a call is said to be on-site when the cell phone is inside his the user’s site area.
Off-site call: a call is said to be off-site when the cell phone is outside his the user’s site area.
Forced on Net, Virtual on Net
The VPN service provides for two options regarding private rate charges for calls to public numbers:
Forced on Net: enables telephone calls to private numbers in the plan (fixed or mobile), dialed using the public format,
to be charged at private rates.
Virtual on Net: enables telephone calls to Preferred External Destinations outside the company to be charged at private
rates.
Account code
This feature enables you to mark calls made by VPN users of a given group in the company account according to the
company activities and organization.
Dual invoicing
This feature allows you to bill calls made by a given VPN user either on the corporate account or on his/her personal
account.

Group short numbers
Group short numbers can be defined in the PNP (Private Numbering Plan) at company level.
Group short numbers enable VPN users of different sites to access public directory numbers or other PNP short numbers
(except another short number of the same group) by just dialing the short number.
Welcome number
Welcome numbers are public directory numbers enabling external people (not belonging to the subscribing company) to
make calls to dedicated VPN users (for instance, customer information service, technical support, etc). The welcome
number is translated into a private number (for instance, group short number, extension or site short number) and is
handled by the VPN service as a call made by a CMM user.
Remote access
With the Remote Access (RMTA) feature, VPN users can access the Private Numbering Plan of their site from any handset
not belonging to the VPN group (in a national or international context), and take advantage of the VPN services (voice
mail access, PED numbers, etc). This access is provided by means of a dedicated service code VPN Service Access
Number and authentication.
Substitution
With the substitution feature, VPN users can access the Private Numbering Plan of their site from any handset of another
VPN user of their group, and take advantage of the VPN services and to the rights granted to the said member line
(voice mail access, PED numbers etc). This access is provided by means of a dedicated service code and
authentication.
Follow-on call
With the follow-on call feature, VPN users can initiate, under some certain conditions, a new call without authentication
after a remote access, substitution or dual invoicing call, or a new call after a call to the account code service without
having to redial the account code.
Inter-working with co-operating VPNs This feature enables the VPN platform to inter-work with co-operating VPNs by
routing to them or receiving company calls from them.
The sites of a group (i.e. a subscribing company) can be dealt with by several co-operating VPNs in different countries.
