Usage Guidelines

The max-ephones command limits the number of Cisco IP phones supported on the router. The maximum number you can set is platform- and version-dependent. Use CLI help to determine the maximum number of ephones you can set, as shown in this example:

Router(config-telephony)# max-ephones ?

<1-48> Maximum phones to support

Cisco CallManager Express/Cisco Unity Express Configuration Example

Hope this helps!

The maximum phone and DN for CME will be based upon your platform and software version, and CUE will be based on the licensing.
