Automatic Off-Hook Call Placement Parameters

As shown in the following table, you can specify an off-hook call contact, enable or disable the feature for each registration, and specify a protocol for the call.

If you are provisioning the VVX 500 series, 600 series, or 1500 phones, you can specify whether the automatic call uses the SIP (audio only) protocol or the H.323 (video) protocol.
