This article allows resellers to associate a Cloud PBX to a customer company.
The Cloud PBX, associated to WebRTC gateway, offers business telephony services to company members:
- Calls between Rainbow users and public network
- Integration of telephone device (IP deskphone) with Rainbow
- Voice mail
- Telephone welcome with greetings and opening/closing hours
- Group telephony
The Cloud PBX and the WebRTC gateway are fully integrated into the Rainbow Hub infrastructure, and do not require any deployment or operations to be performed at the customer premises.
- At least one Voice Business license is assigned to the customer company. This license is required to display the Cloud PBX in the list of equipment that can be associated to the customer company.
- The settings of the public SIP trunk used to connect the Cloud PBX to the public network have been provided to ALE International. A public SIP trunk profile is built and can be selected when associating the Cloud PBX to the customer company.
Before beginning, you must know the following information:
- Voice prompts language
- Customer dialing information (outbound prefix)
- Internal numbering plan
