You can create a paging group so that users can send an audio message to a person, a department, or a team. When someone sends a message to a paging group, the message plays on all devices in the group.

  
Before You Begin

 
  •  

    Paging requires multicast routing using the IP address 239.192.16.240. Make sure that IP address is free for multicast routing only.

      

  •  

    Check that the extensions you plan to assign to a paging group are available and unassigned.

      

  •  

    Paging groups need to have more than one member, and each member needs to have at least one registered device. If someone pages a group with no registered devices they'll hear a busy signal.

      

  •  

    Paging groups only work with the Cisco IP phone 7800 or 8800 series, not analog telephone adapters (ATAs).
