Parameter group

Channel Group

Access level


Possible values

A 1- to 6-character string (0 through 9, A, B, C, and D) or blank




Specifies the area code prefix for all channels in this group. The area code can be used to start the correct voice application in response to an incoming telephone call. (For more information about how area code is used, see Channel identification.)

The way Blueworx Voice Response uses the value of Area Code depends on the value of the Call Information Type parameter for the Channel Group (see Call Information Type for details).

This value can be any number that you select to identify with all the channels in a channel group, up to six characters long. The valid characters are the digits 0 through 9 and the letters A, B, C, and D.
