Create a site under BYOC Premises

A site is a list of rules for routing calls. Objects such as phones associated with a site share the same rules. When a user makes a call from a phone, the system looks up the site and the call type in order to route the call to the best outbound phone line, or endpoint. Phones that are associated with a site are usually located in the same general area and have the same general purpose.

Note: When creating sites, each Edge that you add to a site must have a similar call capacity to ensure proper load balancing. For more information, see Concurrent call capacity for Edge models.
