I have a client that requests the ability to initiate a broadcast intercom to all other telephones simultaneously at the site. Telephones are 7942G and 7962G. System version: 18.104.22.1687-1. The requirement includes the ability to initiate the intercom session from any telephone to all other telephones simultaneously. They had this ability with the Nortel Norstar system that we just replaced. I have Intercom buttons set up in a test environment. I can initiate intercom sessions between two telephones. I tried to set up all intercom buttons with the same intercom DN but Communications Manager didn't allow this. The thought was to initiate intercom sessions to a common number that is on all telephones. Is there a way to set up an intercom group that will broadcast to all intercom DNs within the group? Does anyone have other suggestions to satisfy this client?
This feature (Broadcast Intercom/Paging) is not built-in to any CUCM version (including 7.x, unlike CME) but is most possible (via IP Phone speaker and Overhead) using these highly rated Third party products (among others);
Hope this helps!
