Polycom 430 ring volume

We need to increase the ring volume at some of our satellite locations.  The noise at these sites prevents people from hearing the ring volume on the 430 phones.  Is there a way to increase this ring volume?  Or is there an additional device that could be a loud ringer..

In the past we have used an ATA with a Krown K-RA05 external ringer/strobe. Both are low cost, simple to setup and work well together.

The Krown ringer works with an analog telephone line. The Analog Terminal Adapter or ATA, allows you to interface the analog line with SIP. The box connects to the network and is programmed to register to the server like your Polycom does. The Krown then connects to the analog port of the ATA to the Krown. Now the way we have used them in the past was to place a plain old phone on the wall next to the ringer and run the phone line to both the ringer and the phone. This was done mainly because the warehouses and such that we have used these in really didn't need a nice phone.

If you wanted to use the Krown in connection with the Polycom, you may need to create either a follow-me or a ring group to ring both the Polycom and the Krown together.
