[VoiceOps] Hunt Group "as a Service"

You could use Cisco’s Tropo voice APIs and script your own solution pretty easily. Wouldn’t have a pretty UI, but if it is for internal use it may work?

We evaluated Hosted VoIP service from AT&T and it has that functionality, as would any of the hosted SMB service offerings based on Broadsoft or Cisco.  HVS may be a decent option if you already use AT&T MPLS.  Not sure if you'd consider that an "in band" solution.  We didn't select HVS however b/c management preferred a traditional ACD for our environment having 2000 agents.  Looked like HVS could have supported it, I guess we'll never know.

Would the following satisfy your 'out-of-band' requirement?: If your requirements are modest, you could provide a SMB voice gateway (Cisco CME, SONUS SBC 1000-2000), terminate your DID(s) to it, register some SIP phones to it, and use the internal hunt group functionality to distribute calls.  Call Manager Express is mature & time-proven for this purpose with a small number of phones and would be my recommendation.  Thanks

We use pagerduty.com<http://pagerduty.com> for just this reason. It allows for tiered
schedules and the user has to enter something into the phone to accept
it. This way we don't accidentally have something go to someones
voicemail and miss the notification.
