In some countries, people are not used to having to dial an access code to place an outbound call. Typically, one would deploy the UC500 in Key System (KTS) mode to overcome this situation, but some important features only available in PBX mode, would not work.
The most important reason why an access code is helpful, is because it allows the separation of overlapping dial patterns. However, some customers may still want to avoid having to use an access code, even if it opens the chance for collisions when calling out.
One way to achieve the above, is by making the internal dial plan exclusive. This can only be accomplished by the addition of a special character that can still be dialed. The following example details how to do that, by adding a suffix to the extensions, the "*" DTMF option (star key) in this case.
So, the recommendation is that if you have an internal dialplan in the "2XX" range, you change it to "2XX*".
This example illustrates what the end user experience would be:
1) Say the caller wants to dial a local number such as 214-555-5555 and there is an internal extension using "214"
2) Under normal circumstances, the caller would never get to the local number, as the extension (being a best match) would always be selected first.
3) By adding a "*" at the end of each 2XX extension, now the caller can get to the local number, because this "*" digit makes the two strings mutually exclusive.
4) If the caller wants to dial the internal extension, he would dial "214*" from his phone.
Unfortunately CUE does not support "*", so we will run into MWI issues if we try to use these for ephone-dn extensions. We can overcome that by doing the following (still using the 2XX example):
1) We translate the numbers for the calls going to CUE to remove the "*" from the string.
2) We prepend the "*" to the called number for the call coming from CUE that lights MWI on and off.

Please note that this configuration requires CLI and that the Out of Band rules for CCA should be honored, in order to avoid conflicts. Also, the corresponding CUE config is not included (this example uses non-standard MWI ON and OFF DN's).
I may be wrong but I sense a lack of robustness in these communities. If one can't elicit a response for a simple question then it's not working very well. Is there a Cisco presence or is this just a web tool going fallow? My impression ...
