Yealink - Multicast Paging (Group Paging)
Posted by Jimmy Fuentes, Last modified by Daniel Diaz on 28 April 2021 10:47 AM
The multicast paging feature allows the IP phones to send/receive Real-time Transport
Protocol (RTP) stream to/from the pre-configured multicast address(es) without involving
SIP signaling. You can specify up to 10 listening multicast addresses on IP phones.
For the phones to be able to send and receive multicast paging we need to do the following:
Please note that this article was written for a Yealink T22P. Not all Yealink support this feature.
Adding a Paging Button (DSS Key)
To configure a multicast paging key (This is to SEND the page) via web user interface:
The valid multicast IP addresses range from 126.96.36.199 to 188.8.131.52 and a port number.
For this example we will be using 184.108.40.206:1008 as the value (#4).
Codec for Multicast Paging
To Configure a codec for multicast paging via web user interface:
Receive the Multicast Page
In order to receive the multicast page, the following must be done.
For this example we will be using 220.127.116.11:1008 as the listening address - #3 (The same address used to send multicast paging).
Configure this setting on all the phones you will be paging. You will then be able to page multiple phones from the phone you configured to page using the line key or DSS Key.
