English translation:ROLLOVER = si una linea esta en uso, la llamada se pasa a la proxima linea disponible
Explanation:
para no perder llamadas ni dejar a alguien colgando mientras se oye la senal que indica que la linea esta ocupada. Se usa mucho en oficinas que tienen varias personas que reciben llamadas frequentemente. En ingles se llama "switchboard" si una persona es designada a contestar por todos, o en oficina chica se usa un telefono que tiene botones correspondiente a queda persona.
Ojala te sirva esta explicacion, suerte! Awatts

Gracias. Fue dificilícimo escojer, pero su explicación me ayudó mucho. Además, he buscado "rollover lines" y encontré, entre otros, un sitio de telecomunicaciones de Vanderbilt University que dice lo siguiente:
Forwarding rollover lines to Voice Mail
"By fully utilizing the lines programmed on your phone (main line and rollover) and voice mail, you can achieve a higher level of productivity and customer satisfaction. When calling your main line customers will either reach you or your voice mail. They will never receive another busy signal or ring no answer."
Gracias
