How does it work?

Click to call uses a hyperlink that sends a command to initiate two phone calls at the same time: one directed to the VoIP user's phone and the other to an outgoing number. A click to call widget can be used by the VoIP user or by a potential or existing customer visiting a website.

Pressing click and calling is possible thanks to the session initiation protocol and, normally, it does not require any download of the software. A click from a hyperlink on a website starts a session and the command is sent to dial your SIP address and outgoing number. The SIP proxy sends an invitation to the two users, and then drops the call after the connection is established.
