BYOC Cloud trunk support for TGRP and DNIS

In addition to fully qualified domain name (FQDN), trunk group routing protocol (TGRP) and dialed number identification service (DNIS) are now available. For more information, see Configure SIP routing for a BYOC Cloud trunk. 

PBX passthrough for BYOC Cloud trunks

The new PBX passthrough feature allows a PBX connected to a BYOC Cloud PBX trunk to pass calls intended for the PSTN directly through PureCloud. This feature improves call efficiency. For more information, see Configure PBX passthrough for a BYOC Cloud trunk.

Contact center managers can now see four new agent and queue performance metrics: Average Dialing, Average Contacting, Total Dialing, and Total Contacting.
