|Call Waiting helps busy extension users know when they have additional waiting calls. It also lets callers wait in line for a busy extension without being forgotten.|
With Call Waiting, an extension user may call a busy extension and wait in line (Camp-On) without hanging up. When the user Camps-On (by dialing 2), the system signals the busy extension with two beeps indicating the ﬁrst waiting call. (The busy extension can be on a handset or Handsfree call.) The call goes through when the extension becomes free.
If an extension has more than one caller waiting, they queue on a ﬁrst-in/ﬁrst-out basis (FIFO). The extension will not hear Camp-On beeps for additional waiting calls.
Off-Hook Signaling also alerts the user when unanswered calls are waiting to get through. Turn to Off-Hook Signaling for more.
