Paging Group

Paging Group

This section describes how to configure a paging group in a UC2.X network environment.


You have obtained panging from the SIP server administrator.


The following table lists the modes supported by the HUAWEI IP Phone 7920/7960 to implement the paging group.

Voice Broadcast Mode


Requirements on Recipients


The system uses conference resources to invite paging group members and complete unidirectional transmission of voice. The maximum number of recipients is restricted by conference resources.

You have obtained panging from the SIP server administrator.


The system creates a virtual participant, adds the virtual participant to a conference, and uses the IP multicast function of switches or routers to forward RTP media streams to paging group members to implement the voice broadcast function. This mode occupies only one channel of conference resources, which is used by the virtual participant. To use this mode, all switches and routers through which media streams pass must support the IP multicast function.

You have obtained panging from the SIP server administrator.

To use the multicast function, choose Call Settings > Multicast on the phone web page, enable Multicast.

Figure 5-7 shows the basic service scenario of paging group.

Figure 5-7 Basic service scenario of paging group

  • Basic service scenario

    The service process is as follows:

    1. An initiator dials the access code of a paging group, and speaks after hearing a beep.
    2. The voice broadcast players of all FXS members in the paging group play the voice broadcast, and the IP phones of all unicast and multicast parties respond as follows:
      • If a recipient is idle or has not started a call after picking up the phone, the speaker is automatically started and plays the voice broadcast after a beep.
      • If a recipient is in a call, the voice broadcast is played as a whisper in audio mixing mode.
      • If a recipient has enabled the DND service, the system determines whether to play the voice broadcast to the recipient based on the service priority configured for the paging group.
    3. The initiator stops speaking and hangs up. The voice broadcast is stopped for all recipients.
  • A recipient using an IP phone can press the Hung Up soft button, hands-free button, or headset button to stop listening to the current voice broadcast.
  • By default, all members in a paging group are forced to listen to the voice broadcast.
  • A paging group supports only one channel of voice broadcast at a time. If an initiator is broadcasting, other initiators cannot initiate voice broadcasts.
  • When you have joined multiple paging groups simultaneously, you cannot receive any new paging call if you are the calling party, but can still initiate a channel of paging broadcast if you are the called party.

Configuration Methods

You can configure the paging group using four different methods, as listed in Table 5-30.

Table 5-30 Configuration methods




On the eSight management portal, choose Resource > Collaboration Resource > Terminal Device Management > Deployment Management > Configuration file. Select the corresponding configuration file, click , and expand the configuration items. Click the Service Rights Management tab and set related parameters on the page that is displayed.


Log in to the TMS and click the Subscriber/Device Operation tab. In the pane on the left of the window, click Data Model Tree. Deliver the configuration using the data model tree. Alternatively, use the TR-069 script to set related parameters.

DHCP Option 246

Set related parameters in the configuration file and deliver the new configuration file to the IP phone.


On the phone web page, choose Call Settings > Multicast, set related parameters.



Parameter Settings

Table 5-31 lists the paging group parameters that you must set.
