Voice Dashboard Terms
Disconnected By Description
Disconnected Party can be either the Calling Party hung up, the Called Party hung up, or Other. Other is a call processing error occurring in either the calling party’s system, the called party’s system, or within IntelePeer’s Network.
Below are the reasons why a call may have disconnected; however, these values are subjective based on which party disconnected the call.
- Busy – Called Party’s phone line is occupied and unable to complete the call.
- Call Successful – The call completed without error. This does not necessarily mean that the calling and called parties were connected. For example, if a given call status is ‘incomplete’ but the disconnect description shows ‘Call Successful’ the calling party hung up before the call connected to the end user.
- Forbidden – Access prohibited, or authentication required error. IntelePeer doesn’t accept device registrations.
- Not Found – Calling Party is attempting to dial a number that does not exist or is unallocated.
- Service Unavailable – 503 – Error occurs when a server in the call stream is unavailable, due to a resource constraint. This could be in the caller, called party, or IntelePeer network.
- Timeout – Error occurs when a server in the call stream fails to respond to a request within a time frame. This could be in the caller, called party, or IntelePeer network.
- User Abandon – Calling Party hung up before being connected to the Called Party or a voicemail system.
- Other – Represent multiple error codes that don’t often occur. If you are experiencing a large percent of incomplete calls with the Other disconnect reason, please contact customer support (Incomplete calls can be found on the Call Completion Status widget and the reason for the incomplete calls in the Disconnect Reason Widget of the Voice Services Dashboard).
Check out Disconnect Reason Codes to learn more about the numeric codes corresponding to each disconnect reason.
