Cisco 7911g - group listen feature



I have a problem with a 7911g phone. I cannot use the group listen feature (european style)with my ccme 4.0. (It doesn't work, or I didn't find the right command...)

I tried with a CCM5, and everything worked fine.

So the phone is working, but I have to make it work with a ccme 4.0. Is there a special command to make it work?

Hi Kern,

What is group listen (european style)? Do you mean group paging?

I want to be able to use the group listen feature (European-style speakerphone using the handset and the chassis speaker together).

No, with CME the "monitor" softkey just toggles between handset and speaker. It would be a nice to have feature.

Is Group Listen Supported on CUCM Business Edition?

Hello Guys,

Another quick question.

Is this feature supported on 7931 phones? or just for 7906/11?


On the 7931, you don't really need that. The full-duplex speakerphone is good enough to enable anyone in the same room to participate in a conversation.

I run into this feature fairly often on legacy systems. Customers use a 'listen-in' feature that allows them keep the handset active, while setting the speakerphone to 1 way monitor. This allows other people in the room to 'listen-in' on the phone conversation. On the CM it's the group listen function, but only supported on a couple of phones. Any ideas to have the same function on a higher end phone with a full duplex speaker phone?
