Cisco 2911 ISR with CME and UE

We have installed a Cisco 2911 ISR with CME and UE.

Currently the incoming lines are via two 4 port FXO Cards and I have one 2 port FXS card for the two fax machines on site.

After hte fact, the customer asked me about linking the paging into the system.  They have a standard analog paging system in house and they want to be able to dial extension 2050 and send a voice page to the separate analog amp.

So, the official question is:

Can this be done through one of the FXO ports? I have read it can be done through the FXS.

If it can be done through the FXO then please offer some advice or instruction as to how I can do it on Voice-Port 0/1/3

If it cannot be done through the FXO port then can you offer guidance as to how it can be done through voice-port 0/2/1 the FXS Port.

If it cant be done through either FXO or FXS, can you offer advice as to how it can be done, module to buy, etc?

    Accepted Solution

    If it's a multi-zone paging system then this would be accomplished thru FXO.  If it's a single zone then FXS will be used.

    here is the example for an FXO integration with a pots dial-peer and a destination pattern of 2050

    dial-peer voice 2050 pots
    destination-pattern 2050
    port 0/1/3

    Hello EyeNoVoIP

    The system is a single analog paging amp to 8 paging horns.  I only have FXO ports free on the router.   If I understand multi-zone to single-zone correctly, my environment is a single zone.

    If I understand your response correctly this means the FXO will not work and I need to buy a second FXS card to accomplish the goal?

    Please let me know if my understanding is correct.  Sorry for the delay in response :)

    That's correct, you will need an FXS port to configure this. The Dial Peer EyeNoVoIP has provided is correct where "port 0/1/3" is the FXS port connected to the paging system.
