Re: Saving channels by collapsing a call instead of bridging?
I am not very familiar with the Dialogic product and cannot comment about
the function of the Dialogic IVR. But I think that your approach is the
wrong one. Instead of messing with ISDN on the Dialogic product, you should
just get remove it. You should move the IVR function to the 5300. Unless
your IVR is "very" complicated, the 5300 will have no problem with it. It
will also be lots more simple to program. This way you can have the PRI
back and use it to connect to the Avaya or the PSTN.
