So I have an interesting issue it seems. I have an Asterisk 1.6 box with polycom phones talking to it. I can call multiple phones at once, I can page one phone at a time, but paging multiple phones at once does not work.
When I attempt to page multiple phones, all the phones get the alert tone but as soon as the auto answer happens it’s always just one phone that ends up staying on the call. It’s almost like when the auto answer occurs, the first phone to receive it gets the call and the rest get terminated.
It’s almost like I have to force all the phones into a meetme room or something. It would be great if anyone has any ideas, I’m not sure how I will get this working.
Here’s what my dialplan looks like…
;call both phones exten => 3,1,Dial(SIP/Phone&SIP/Phone2) ;page both phones exten => *3,1,SIPAddHeader(Alert-Info: Ring Answer) exten => *3,2,Dial(SIP/Phone&SIP/Phone2) exten => *3,3,Hangup
Here is what is in my sip.cfg for the actual polycom provisioning…
<alertInfo voIpProt.SIP.alertInfo.1.value="Ring Answer" voIpProt.SIP.alertInfo.1.class="4" /> <RING_ANSWER se.rt.4.name="Ring Answer" se.rt.4.type="ring-answer" se.rt.4.timeout="1000" se.rt.4.ringer="13" se.rt.4.callWait="6" se.rt.4.mod="1"/> <RING_ANSWER se.rt.4.name="Ring Answer" se.rt.4.type="ring-answer" se.rt.4.timeout="2000" se.rt.4.ringer="2" se.rt.4.callWait="6" se.rt.4.mod="1" />
It would be awesome if anyone could give me any ideas or insight on this issue.
