Overhead Paging

This customer needs to be able to page over the built-in speaker in the 7940 phones. ("Clay call on park 100") so the message is broadcast out everyone's speaker. I know this can be done with an FXS device and a plar, but can it be done with the phones?

Is this currently possible? Anybody know when it will be?

Re: Overhead Paging

In order to do this using the phones rather than an overhead, we would need to be able to support auto answer with the speakerphone. This is not yet available and is planned for a future release.

Re: Overhead Paging

Dave, do you know if the planned auto answer feature will support shared lines? We looked at Berbee's product, but it did not support shared lines. We would like to put the same DN on a bunch of phones and use it as an inexpensive intercom solution.
