Q. What is Headset Remote Call Control?
Remote Call Control is the ability for the end user to hear their softphone ring in their Plantronics Headset and answer the softphone call by pressing the call control button on the device. The user ends the softphone call by pressing the same button. Without Remote Call Control users are forced to use the softphone interface to answer and end the call which can be complicated and varies across UC softphone applications. In addition, if the user is using a wireless solution they can still answer and end the softphone call while away from their PC with a touch of a button on their headset.
