Barge In on Calls for Busy Lamp Field Lines

When your phone is registered with the Alcatel-Lucent CTS, you and other contacts can barge in on active calls for Busy Lamp Field (BLF) lines you all are monitoring.

Only one contact can barge in on a call at a time. Contacts can barge in on remote held calls using the Normal barge in mode but cannot barge in on parked calls.

This feature is not supported on VVX 150 phones. Check with your system administrator to find out if this feature is available on your phone.

You can barge in on a call using one of the following modes:
  • Normal (audio and video calls)—Initiates a conference call with you and the contacts currently in the call.
  • Whisper (audio-only)—Enables you to barge in on audio calls only to talk to a contact in the call without the far-end hearing your audio. This mode is not available for video calls.
  • Listen (audio-only)—Enables you to barge in to audio calls only and listen to the other parties' conversation without anyone hearing your audio. This mode is not available for video calls.

Procedure

  1. During an active call, select Barge In.
  2. On the Barge In screen, select a mode.
    If enabled, a tone plays when you barge in to a call using any of the modes.
