External Phone Ringing?

Hello All,

I was hoping to get some advise on setting up a VOIP phone number to ring a phone as well as lack of a better term, an outside horn. We have a group that does a lot of work outside and they need to know when the phone rings. Can this be done with a c2960 or will I have to use a C1700.

Thanks for the help,

Dan

Hi Dan,

We use the Stinger Ringer (Model 196) from Dees Communications. You will need an Analog port off a VG or ATA (with the IP Phone Directory Number) to power this device.This thing is super loud and works well for us. Here is an excerpt from the documentation;

The Stinger Ringer cuts through the noise of any environment with a powerful 110 dBA. Its intense signal is transmitted in all directions and reaches every corner of an industrial location or home.

The Stinger 90, Model 196, operates directly from Central Office power. It has a modular plug that connects right into a standard telephone wall jack. This unit is equipped with a three position volume switch (hi - med - low).

Here is a link to the actual doc:

Hope this helps!

Thanks for your help. I'll give it a go with the ATA. The Stinger Ringer, wake up the whole golf course.

Hi Dan,

Yes, start off on the Low setting to avoid too many errant Golf Balls :)

Take care,

Re: External Phone Ringing?

Rob, have you actually used these devices on an ATA? I am unsure exactly how to read the power requirements, but I know I tried another external ringer off an ATA and it failed miserably because the ATA could not supply enough current.

Thanks!

Hi Team,

Yes, but only in a "test" environment. We use VG248's in production. The Stinger worked fine with the ATA.

Hope this helps!
