What is Hegaco Context!
"Hegaco context" is a logical entity that corresponds to a
call within a virtual H6W [vH6W].
When a call is routed through a vH6W, a "Hegaco context"
has to be created.
II multiple vH6Ws are involved during a call, several
Hegaco contexts need to be created.
Required # oI Hegaco Context is:
