On the settings of the directory number, look for "Auto Answer" and select "Auto answer with speakerphone".

To use the intercom to multiple handsets, configure the directory number on several phone.

Thank you for your response, I tested this config, but with this, Always respond the first telephone that answer the call, others get idle besides that, I need a second line in each phone to implement the feature, so I can not do this with 7911/06, etc...or any model of phone that has only one line available....

This is easy to configure in CallManager Express but I can not understand why Cisco does not have the same in CallManager....

Hi Gustavo,

Are you able to share how you were able to do it on CME?


This is an example with CCME 4.2:

In this example, paging calls to 2000 are multicast to Cisco Unified IP phones 1 and 2, and paging calls

to 2001 go to Cisco Unified IP phones 3 and 4. Note that the paging ephone-dns (20 and 21) are not

assigned to any phone buttons.

ephone-dn 20

number 2000

paging ip port 2000

ephone-dn 21

number 2001

paging ip port 2000

ephone 1

mac-address 3662.024.6ae2

button 1:1

paging-dn 20

ephone 2

mac-address 9387.678.2873

button 1:2

paging-dn 20

ephone 3

mac-address 0478.2a78.8640

button 1:3

paging-dn 21

ephone 4

mac-address 4398.b694.456

button 1:4

paging-dn 21

That is a pretty neat feature. I didn't know about the paging-dn command.

You are right. I have not heard about any such feature in CCM other than looking at 3rd party applications.
