New and Changed Features
BLF Call Pickup Feature
If you configure the BLF call pickup function on a programmable line key, the user can select any registering line key explicitly to pick up the call, regardless of the "vid" setting.
For example: On UUT, register Ext 1 and 2 to server, and map line key 1 and 2 to Ext 1 and 2 respectively. On sidecar, set < Unit 1 Key 1 > = "fnc=sd+cp+blf;email@example.com;nme=1000;vid=1”.
When number 1000 receives an incoming call, line key 1 on UUT sidecar will keep flashing. The call can be answered on UUT ext 1 if user presses line key 1 directly.
If user selects UUT line key 2 (phone changes to dialing status) and presses sidecar line key 1, UUT will find a idle call appearance of Ext 2 to pick up the call. If no idle call is found on Ext 2, UUT uses the Ext line specified by "vid" to find the idle call, and the next behavior is the same as in 7.5.5.
SSLv3 disable by default
The Enable SSLv3 feature allows the user to enable or disable the SSLv3. By default SSLv3 is disabled. SSLv2 is always disabled.

Behavior During Times of Network Congestion
Anything that degrades network performance can affect voice and video quality, and in some cases, can cause a call to drop. Sources of network degradation can include, but are not limited to, the following activities:
Administrative tasks, such as an internal port scan or security scan
Attacks that occur on your network, such as a Denial of Service attack
To reduce or eliminate any adverse effects to the devices, schedule administrative network tasks during a time when the devices are not being used or exclude the devices from testing.
