Indoor Cisco IP Phone Loud Ringer for Cisco Call Manager

There are multiple examples of when the End User may require a Loud Phone ringing device. Two of the most popular examples, specifically for the Cisco IP Phone Loud Ringer: Office and Warehouse buildings.

With your installed Cisco IP Phones, there is only a certain maximum volume level you can utilize. If your location has a lot of background noise or is generally loud, you may be missing calls. In today’s environment we can’t afford to be missing calls. A missed phone call, could be related to new business or potential new customer. Likewise, it could be a colleague with some important information. This is where the Cisco Loud Phone Ringer comes in handy. Specifically designed for Cisco environments and a Cisco Call Manager architecture.

Quite simply, when your Cisco IP Phone (or other) rings, this Loud Bell Ringer plays a ringtone or call out message. In this post we are going to explain how easy the hardware installation is. We are going to cover the main features. More importantly, we are going to show you how to register the device to Cisco Call Manager.

Cisco IP Loud Ringer: 2 x SIP Lines

Like all our Cisco SIP endpoints, the Indoor Loud Ringer features 2 x SIP lines (extensions). One extension will always be used. The first extension is assigned to the Cisco IP Phone or Call group you want the loud phone alter for. The optional to use, 2nd SIP extension can be assigned to your Public Address Paging System.

So, that would go something like this: Assign the mandatory 1st SIP extension to your IP Phone you want to be notified is ringing. Assign the 2nd SIP extension to your event and emergency notification system. The 2nd is optional to use.

If a live page or pre recorded PA broadcast (multicast) was initiated over the PA Tannoy system, it would be broadcast over the Cisco IP Phone Loud Ringer. It would achieve this, through the 2nd SIP extension.

All Cyberdata devices feature dual SIP lines. Including the Cisco VoIP Door Entry Phones.

Cisco SRST Embedded

This is another optional to use feature. It falls into the technical side of things (a little). So, have you heard of the Cisco Fail-over and backup feature, its called Cisco SRST. It stands for Survivable Remote Site Telephony.

Let’s say, you had your Loud Ringer in a office location where there was no centralised Call Manager Server. How would you back your new device up ? For example, what would happen if any on-site hardware equipment, or phone lines failed ?

Not everyone is overly concerned about Fail-over features. However, CyberData is the only 3rd party SIP device (in the world), that Cisco have allowed the use of their own fail-over feature (SRST).

This is very easy to set up. If you see the image below, you will see a tick box for “Cisco SRST”. Simply put a tick in the box, then enter the remote back-up servers details. You can learn more about Cisco SRST, on this external site.

See this video below on SRST. Remember, this feature is optional to use.

This image shows how to implement SRST. Just tick a box and add the server details.

Easy and fast Installation

The great news is: The Loud Phone Ringer is extremely easy to set up. There is no great technical expertise needed. If you was installing, say one the Cisco SIP Door Phones, they are a little more tricky. You need to wire up the Integrated dry relay contact. However, with this device it’s all really straight forward. lets take you through a step by step guide.

  • Connect to the Internet
    Its protocol is IP right, so anything that’s an IP device, requires a network connection. Find your nearest network point, router or switch. Connect a cat5e cable to the Ringer, then run the other end to your network point: For this you will need a long patch lead. For very long cable runs, you made need to make a long patch lead. Remember, typically you run around 300 feet on cat5e/cat6 data cable.
  • Access it’s Web-page
    The product requires no running software. It has a web-page which is accessed through its IP address. Here you complete the configuration settings.
  • Connect it to Cisco Call Manager
    The Loud Phone ringer is SIP compliant. It registers direct to CUCM as an approved 3rd party SIP extension.
  • Set up a New User and Extension
    Log into your Cisco UC administration panel. Set the approved 3rd party device up as a new user and extension number. This is no different than adding a new IP Telephone.

User-uploadable ring and audio files

You can store your own audio files within the ringers web-page. An audio file could be a designated ring-tone. It could also be a audio call out message.

Product Recap: The IP based Indoor Loud Office Ringer is directly certified by Cisco. The manufacturer (who we distribute for) has been a technology partner to Cisco since 2008. It connects to your network switch and uses Power Over Ethernet.

You assign its SIP extension to the IP Phone(s) you want to alter the office are ringing. Your phone rings, the Loud Ringer rings. You can upload your own ring-tones.

The entire set up, mirrors that of an IP Phone. No great technical expertise is required.
