011049 SIP Call Button


The SIP Call Button is a reliable solution for a one-touch programmable call to an IP phone or page announcement. It can be mounted under a desk, on a wall, or in a discrete location. During an event, the button is pressed and automatically makes a call to a pre-set phone or extension number. When the call is answered, the Call Button plays and repeats a stored audio file. This stored audio file is uploaded by the administrator to meet the needs of the installed location.

In an InformaCast environment, the SIP call button registers to the Cisco Call Manager as a third party SIP endpoint. When the Call Button is pressed it makes a call to the Cisco Call Manager, and InformaCast detects that call to initiate an event.
