Topic: Internal (DIALIN) Prefix (7+XXXX) Similar to DIALOUT Prefix (9+NXX-XXXX) for Hotel [Comments: 2]

Is there a way to facilitate the use of a prefix for extensions to call each other (example: 7+XXXX) much like the DIALOUT Prefix (9+NXX-XXXX) would be used for making calls to the PSTN. I thought that it would be configurable in OUTBOUND ROUTES, where you could strip the first digit, then send the remaining digits (the extension number) for an internal match, but the only routes/trunks available are to the CO switch, no "internal" trunk. This would be useful in a hotel style deployment. I do not want to include the 7 as part of the extension number for various reasons.
It seems like this should be very simple and straight forward, but I am stuck. Any suggestions would be very much appreciated. Thank you.
