We are running into an issue trying to equip one of our larger conference rooms with a VoIP phone. We tried to use a 7937G with satellites, but the cables that come with the mic kit are too short. We came up with a couple of ideas, but we do not know if they are doable.
#1 - Does Cisco offer longer cables for the satellites? We not only need to reach farther with the cables, but we also need to âhideâ the cable under the tables.
#2 - Is there a way to tie 3 standard IP phones together to operate as one? (Example: Person at the head of the table hits the speaker button & starts dialing, the other phones' mics and speakers activate and operate as one.)
Are any of these doable? Are there any other options or ways to equip conference rooms?
Cisco does not make longer cables for the satellite microphones; however, they are using standard RJ9 I believe so you could wire up additional length as needed.
There is no native way to have multiple phones work together like that. I suspect you would have difficulty with feedback if you did it. In theory though, you could use CUAE or JTAPI directly to do CTI control of multiple phones. The phones would have to dial into a conference bridge. CUAE or JTAPI could then add an external participant to the conference.
I think you need to look at "installed audio" for this type of situation. You would typically mic the whole room and use a centralized muxing unit that registers to UC Manager as an H.323 or SIP end point.

The below trick might come handy when you have to add a new node to a cluster but you don't have or is unsure of the security password for the publisher. This procedure has been around for ages.
