Feature Servers

The VOCAL system supports the following features:

  • Call Blocking

  • Caller ID Blocking

  • Call Forward All Calls

  • Call Forward No Answer Busy

  • Call Return

  • Call Screening

  • Voice Mail

  • JTAPI server (see its later section)

For more information about how to assign features to users, see Chapter 4.

For more information about how features are used by subscribers, see Chapter 13.
