Description

Unique description for the table entry.  Valid entry: up to 64 characters.

Action

Specifies the action to be taken. The action tells the call routing function the next step to take when setting up a call. For example, when Send Alert is selected, the next step in the call routing function is for an alert message to be sent (as part of the Action Set). Default entry: Route Call.

Possible actions include:

ActionDefinition
Route CallCall is routed. If the Timeout field is set, the SBC waits for the amount of time specified in the Timeout field before routing the call. From the Route Table field, select a route for this call.
Send AlertAlert is sent before the call is routed.
Send ConnectConnect message is sent from SBC.
Release CallCall is released. With this option, a Q.850 Cause Code can be configured.
Detect CNGFax call is detected and routed to the appropriate fax endpoint. From the Timeout field, specify the length of time for the SBC to wait for CNG to be detected. See Best Practice - Configuring One Number Fax.
Route Call, Await Connect Timer
SBC routes the call, and waits for the amount of time specified in the Connect Timer field for the call to connect. From the Route Table field, select a route for this call.
Generic TimerEnables a timer used for the SBC to pause before proceeding to the next action. Use this action to get call routing to pause to allow some external event to occur, or delay the call connect process to match the far-end requirements. From the Timeout field, specify the length of time.
Invoke Action SetSpecifies another Action Set to be invoked. When this option is selected, you can choose which Action Set to begin.
