External Speakers for Ring Only
One of our guys in the Maintenance Department wants an External Amplified Ringer for their Cisco 7962 phones. They have 2 Cisco phones in a Mechanic’s Garage with a lot of noise from Air Tools and cannot hear the phone. The phones do flash red when ringing but they still want the external device.
I was hoping there would be something I could plug in to the phone, mount, and not have to use an ATA. In other words, I was looking for something that was a VoIP/Network Solution instead of digital to analog.
Does anyone have a suggestion?
We use the Stinger Ringer (Model 196) from Dees Communications. We have used both an Analog port off a VG or ATA to power this device.This thing is super loud and works well for us. It is "line powered"
Here is a link to the actual doc:
Hope this helps!
I looked for something similar a few years ago. No dice. I had to leverage a "stinger ringer" and an analog port (I used VG224 but ATA VG202, etc.) to accomodate the customer need. I understand this isn't what you are looking for. Just giving you my field experience with this type of question. Hopefully, someone has found a solution which meets your specifications. If they have, I am sure it would be something that involves using a shared/bridged line and not in-line with the phone itself. UNLESS, it is a Cisco manufacturing partner that has been permitted to modify the phone itself.
Good luck with your search.
