Suppose that an organization has deployed the speed-dialing scheme illustrated for reference in Figure 15-6 and detailed in the following list:

  • The CEO speed-dials 1 to talk with the COO.
  • The CEO speed-dials 2 to talk with the VP of Marketing.
  • The COO speed-dials 1 to talk with the VP of Marketing.
  • The COO speed-dials 5 to talk with the CEO.
  • The VP of Marketing speed-dials 7 to talk with the CEO.
  • The VP of Marketing speed-dials 9 to talk with the COO.

Table 15-2 provides another view of the Telephone Speed-Dial Network.

Table 15-2
Table 15-2: Telephone Speed-Dial Configuration Table

Site A Site B A -> B Speed Dial B -> A Speed Dial
COO Marketing VP 1 9
COO CEO 5 1
CEO Marketing VP 2 7
CEO COO 1 5
Marketing VP CEO 7 5
Marketing VP COO 9 1

For the CEO to speak with the COO, the CEO will press speed-dial 1 on the telephone set. However, the COO will see speed-dial 5 on the telephone because that is the local speed-dial assignment given to the CEO, as the speed-dial 1 local assignment on the COOs telephone set is assigned to the VP of Marketing.

If the COO presses speed-dial 1, the VP of Marketing will answer the phone and speed-dial 9 will show on the Marketing VPs phone because that is the local assignment given to the COO.
