Unanswered Question

Was just wondering if anyone has an elegant way of getting a Third Party SIP phone to initiate a MeetMe?

I have this problem too.

SIP phones can participate in a meet-me conference, but they can't initiate a meet-me conference. Only SCCP phones can initiate a meet-me conference via a softkey.

Well that's not entirely accurate; a Cisco SIP phone can initiate a MeetMe conference.

If you look in the SIP Profile on UCM, I believe there is a setting for this. I've never done it but you'd need to configure the SIP phone to send the xcisco-??? message in the invite probably. Hopefully that'll move you in the right direction at least.

At the moment we use a SCCP Handset to initiate the MeetMe conference and then dial into it with our 3rd Party SIP Conference phone.
