Overrides to Create Page Groups 

The following override will create two page groups; page group 1 is “x" and page group 2 is "y". Devices that include these override settings will be able to send page to these two groups.

  • ptt.pageMode.enable="1"
  • ptt.pageMode.group.1.label="x"
  • ptt.pageMode.group.2.label="y"
  • feature.nonVolatileRingerVolume.enabled="1"
  • np.normal.ringing.toneVolume.chassis="1000"
  • np.normal.alert.messageWaiting.tonePattern="silent"


Override to Receive Pages from a Group

In order to receive pages, individual devices must 'subscribe' to one or more page groups. The following override will allow devices to subscribe to the y group (group 2).

  • ptt.pageMode.group.2.subscribed="1"


Override to Receive Pages from Multiple Page Groups

The following override will allow devices to subscribe to both the x group (group 1) and the y group (group 2).

  • ptt.pageMode.group.1.subscribed="1"
  • ptt.pageMode.group.2.subscribed="1"


Override to Change the Multicast IP Address

The default multicast IP address used by Polycom phones is 224.0.1.116. The default multicast port is 5001. Default values may be changed with the following overrides:

  • ptt.address="224.0.1.117"
  • ptt.port="5003"
