Ring group

A ring group take a group of devices as one object. Firstly the ring group receives a request ( e.g., extensions only dial inside numbers within the group, or switch to the ring group through IVR), then the ring group will ring one or more devices at the same time or one after another.

The ring group and the queue work mostly the same way, but ring group does not need to sign in.
