Alexander: The problem with a server based solution like Cyberdata's is that it creates a delay in a live page. If the listener can hear both paging from the telephone speaker AND the (delayed) overhead PA system, the combination of live and delayed would be garbled. Unacceptable. Thanks for your reply. BTW: We attempted to contact the 2 companies listed in your thread and carefully read their web sites, after difficulty finding them. Both were hard to contact and the replies received were uninformative.

What about the impedance mismatch between the speaker output and the Hi-Z or mike level input of the PA amplifier? How does it sound? We too are EXTRAORDINARALY disappointed that Cisco would let this issue go unresolved for several years -- - FXO or FXS ports cannot be added to a paging group. I just passed Cisco's Certification, this is our first UC5xx sale, and our customer wants their old Avaya reinstalled, over this issue. IT IS IMPORTANT, CISCO... because that's how every other phone system works. "All Page" means all! Someone, please direct me to a little interface box, with a Skinny IP telephone protocol, that will let me connect an external analog PA system to the Paging Group, OR would Cisco be so kind as to add this function to CCA -- so an FXS port can be added to a paging group. Then I can use my regular Bogen TAMB2 interface. Please hurry. Bruce Wagenberg Broadcast Engineering Services Co. (Cisco Partner) 847-835-0223 email@example.com
