Hi Walid,


The number of supported phones is based on the Router platform and Memory (like you have correctly noted). You will need to purchase a new box :(


For example: Here is the number for a 2811,2821 and 2851 with CME;


Cisco 2811

Maximum Total IP Phones 36


Cisco 2821

Maximum Total IP Phones 48

Cisco 2851

Maximum Total IP Phones 96


From this good CME doc;

Hope this helps!

Rob

Rob gave the official numbers.

Here the actual ones, that are larger because Cisco in their grace, gave customers a little of slack:


SCCP SCCP SIP SIP

Phones DNs Phones DNs

1751 (CME 3.2) 30 150 100 N/A

2801 30 150 24 144

2811 42 144 36 144

2821 ?? ?? ??

2851 96 288 96 288

3825 168 500

3845 240 700

You cannot increase the limit for ephones on a router and no upgrades are available.


However, if you can live with the differences and limitations, you could add an equivalent number of ephones, because the software does not enforce the sum of SCCP and SIP phones against the maximum supported.


That would be a unsupported configuration, of course.


Hope this helps, please rate post if it does!
