Dialing rules describe the way end users dial numbers. Dialing rules convert the numbers from the customer-format to the E.164 format.

The dialing rules wizard helps you create dialing rules that take many different parameters into consideration, such as local and international codes, exceptions, etc.

Fill in the general information about the dialing rule and use the navigation links to open and configure additional options.

Select which customers you create this dialing rule for.

Dialing rules can be of these types:

  • PBX – this is a dialing rule for cloud PBX customers and those who use cloud PBX features such as call parking, call pickup and the like. Here you define national and international codes, a special prefix to access an outside network (e.g., when a user makes a call from within an cloud PBX environment) plus the service codes used within the cloud PBX environment.
  • Residential – this dialing rule emulates the dialing habits of residential customers. In this dialing rule you define the international and national codes plus the special prefixes that residential customers must dial to access the network and make a call.
  • Custom – this type allows you to define your own dialing rules by using Perl regular expressions.

The options below are adjusted depending upon the selected dialing rule type.
