Fixed line subscribers will now be able to know the number from which a second call comes in when they are already on a call.

Currently, when a subscriber has an activated Call Waiting service on the fixed line telephone, a tone is sounded when there is a second incoming call. With this extension of the CLIP service to call waiting, customers will be able to see the telephone number of the origin of the second call.

Mohammed Al Fahim, Executive Vice President- Marketing, Etisalat, said: "All our customers on the fixed line network across the Emirates will automatically receive this service, at no charge."

"There have been significant developments to the fixed line network. Etisalat has been at the forefront of the development of this sector in the region. With the imminent launch of NGN (Next Generation Network), customers will be able to benefit from features like video calling and high-speed Internet," he added.

UAELAB has approved three telephone sets that support this new enhancement, and these are the CYBIOLINK 9000 from Metel Trading, IRIS 6015 from Intracom Middle East and the PANASONIC KXTSC11 from Al Futtaim Panatech LLC. These equipment are also available at Etisalat Business Centers, at the vendor outlets.

Etisalat currently serves over 1.2 million subscribers on the fixed line network.
