Paging Device Limitations

I want to revisit the 25 phone paging device limitation. Is there any creative workaround to extend this limit?

The issue with network traffic is, to me, nonsense on an enterprise-level gigabit network, particularly in a health care facility where a medical code incident must be broadcast to various offices that will never contain paging speakers.

FWIW our previous Cisco UCS system implemented Informacast which could page 250+ phones and our network somehow survived the onslaught every time I tested it. ;-)

Just use multicast and ignore using the RC cloud paging.

If you need cloud paging because you need to page via the app, just register your paging adapter or a speaker, and multicast the rest that way too.

Interesting, could you share one more level of detail on how that's done?

We have a paging adapter as one of the 25, it sends audio to the PA.
