Abstract

See full text

The present invention provides a system for placing a telephone call using a telephone number and an extension. The system includes an origination device that receives a telephone number and an extension associated with a destination device and initiates the establishment of a communication path to the destination device by issuing the telephone number. In addition, the origination device determines whether a condition to issue the extension has been satisfied and issues the extension to complete the establishment of the communication path if the condition has been satisfied. The destination device includes a first destination device and a plurality of second destination devices. The first destination device can be contacted based on the telephone number and also receives the extension to complete the establishment of the communication path by selecting the appropriate second destination device to which to place the telephone call.
