is it possible to use an intercom line directly to several phones and not only to one phone.
At the reception phone there is an intercom line configured. When pressing this intercom button at all specified phones the speaker will be activated and the person at the reception phone can make an announcement to all of the phones at the same time.
Is this possible with an intercom line or is there any other feature to use?
There is no "built-in" phone to multi-phone paging support within CUCM. You would need a 3rd party product
many thanks for the answer.
Would it also be possible to call with the intercom line instead of a phone a DN of a hunt group in which then several phones are?
My bad! I didn't see your reference to CME as compared to CUCM (which I assumed )
and you know what happens when you assume
Here are the config steps;
Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express System Administrator Guide
many thanks .
That means with configuring paging at CUCM 8.6 I can solve this problem?
It`s a Cisco Callmanager 8.6.2 not a CME.
Sorry to be so unclear
This can be done with CME not CUCM. With CUCM you need the 3rd party products.
Too bad that there is no way to configure this directly in CUCM 8.6.2 like CME.
I think a 3rd party product we don`t buy only for such a function.
Do you know why this feature "paging" is not available in CUCM and only in CME?
sorry it`s me again.
Rgd. this page "https://supportforums.cisco.com/docs/DOC-4194" it would be possible to configure paging with CUCM and a Cisco router configured as a H.323, or?
We have the CUCM in the Headoffice and in the location where we want to use the audio paging we have as a voicegateway a Cisco 2921 router which is configured as a H.323 gateway at the CUCM.
Is it possible to use paging via this Cisco 2921 router?
Many sites with an existing PBX also have a paging system, allowing users to call an extension on the PBX that forwards the audio broadcast to overhead loudspeakers. This concept is useful in workshops, parking lots, and open plan areas where a called party is not near a telephone handset. PBX manufacturers may provide dedicated line cards that interface with external paging amplifiers.
The Cisco CallManager needs the Cisco 2610 router to be configured as an H.323 gateway device. The extension number for the paging port is defined under the Cisco CallManager Route Pattern configuration page, pointing to the Cisco 2610 H.323 gateway.
When the number for the paging system is dialed, a VoIP call is made between the IP handset to the E&M port on the gateway router. The voice port goes off hook. This is indicated by the E lead on pin 7 going from open circuit to closed circuit (with respect to the ground on pin 8). This off hook condition activates the pager system's control input, and the audio is sent on pins 4 and 5 of the voice port
Rob is based in Canada so won't be around for a couple of hours, so I'll try and help out.
The attached article shows how to integrate a 3rd party paging system with CUCM. Some of the 3rd party systems have analog interfaces (E&M or FXS) so need to be attached to a gateway that is H.323 / SIP attached to CUCM so that they can be dialled from an IP Handset. These are commonly used in factory / warehouse environments with roof mounted speakers.
Rob is correct (+5!) and that you need to use a 3rd party system to use paging with CUCM. It's just one of those things that CUCME that CUCM can't. The 3rd party systems break into two different types - those that use the Cisco IP phones to deliver the paging function, and those that rely on external amps / speakers. It's the latter than the article above applies to.
