Multilevel Hierarchical Hunting

Idee: Filip Lauwyck, B-Vladslo

The invention enables to reach accesses with different customer equipment's, inclusive PBX's andsubgroups, as a group with own group features, independent of the existing features on theseaccesses.

This feature is today partly realised by replacing all accesses by a PBX, with multi line huntinggroup, CFW, with series completion and overflow PBX. All today's solutions have strongdisadvantages:

1.     Replace all accesses by a PBX:In order to group all accesses into a hunting structure, all subscriber lines and PBX-lines areremoved and put into one large PBX. This solution, however, implies that a new hardwareconfiguration is needed and that the existing investments are lost. Therefore, this solution is notacceptable.

2.     Multi line hunting group:For subscriber: the lines of the hunting group consist out of subscriber-like connections. Theprofile for A-side calls is the combination of the profile on group level and the profile onmember level. The profile for B-side calls depends on the used directory number, if the groupnumber is used than group profile applies, if the individual line number is used a combinationof both profiles (Group and member) is used.For PBX: all lines of the involved PBX's are put together in one PBX. The profile for A-sidecalls is the combination of the profile on group level and the profile on member level. Theprofile for B-side calls depends on the used directory number, if the group number is usedthan group profile applies, if the individual line number is used a combination of both profiles(Group and member) is used.However, this solution can not handle a mixture of subscribers and PBX's.

3.     Series completion:For subscriber: not possible.For PBX: all PBX's are chained. The profile for A-side calls is the profile of the individualPBX. The profile for B-side calls depends on the used line. The profile of the PBX directnumber to which the line belongs is used.However, this solution can not handle a mixture of subscribers and PBX's.

4.     Overflow PBX:For subscriber: not possible.
