IP Overhead Paging

What are the options for using IP Overhead Paging?

I'm looking at PagePro IPTM, SIP Based Paging Server, Model VIP-201.

Running 8.0.4 and CCA 2.2.5

I know the CCA can't configure a SIP device, but could I set up via CLI?


Re: IP Overhead Paging

Honestly, the best solution would be to hand off paging on an FXS port to the Valcom paging unit.  I'm not sure if the VIP-201 will support that, but I know for a fact that Valcom has an IP solution that you can plug an FXS into, and then use IP based speakers.  I think you can use a VIP-801 to interface with an FXO port, but you need to confirm this with Valcom.  They are usually very helpful if you call their Presales line.

Re: IP Overhead Paging

That won't work as the 2 bldgs are only joined via fiber.

Re: IP Overhead Paging

If you use the VIP-201, you could put it in the server room where the UC500 resides and hand off analog there, then use IP speakers where you need them

Re: IP Overhead Paging

I would imagine all you would need on the UC500 is a SIP dial-peer, something like:

dial-peer voice 1 voip
destination-pattern xxxx
session protocol sipv2
session target ipv4:
codec g711ulaw

xxxx being the number you want to dial for paging

session target ipv4: - this would need to be the IP of the PagePro...

I'm not sure how the Page Pro's configuration is but I bet there is a document regarding Integration with Cisco.
