Description: Call a remote exchange within an AlphaNet.

To reach a station (or feature) in a remote exchange, dial area code followed by local directory number. The area code is recognised locally, while the remaining dialling is forwarded to the remote exchange for interpretation. This is in contrast to the Global Numbers, which transfers the digits to the remote exchange.

The Area Code feature always establishes an audio link to the remote exchange. The initiating station becomes temporarily "local" to the remote exchange, and can basically do whatever a local station to that exchange can do.

Dialling one’s own area code is allowed.
