Re: Maximum no. of calls for VGC

Hi Lester,

Unfortunately there is no way around this parameter :( You can configure up to 200 calls for a line on a device in a cluster, with the limiting factor being the device. As you configure the number of calls for one line, the calls available for another line decrease. Cisco IP Phones that support the multicall display (such as a Cisco IP Phone 7960) support up to 200 calls per DN and 2 calls per DN for non-multicall display devices (such as VGC Analog phone or Cisco IP Phone 7905). This is really due to the fact that there is no way to properly handle more than 2 calls at a time on these type of phones.

From this good doc;

Hope this helps!
