Your StarLeaf endpoints are connected to the StarLeaf platform. This means that from a StarLeaf endpoint, you can call anyone who has a standards-based video device connected to the public Internet and they can call you. If you want to video-call someone who does not have a StarLeaf device, send that person a guest invite from the StarLeaf app or a StarLeaf room system.
Depending on your account settings, you might also be able to call out to the public telephone network.
