Paging 180 phones consisting of a group of wifi enabled J129/J179's on a IP500v2.

Paging 180 phones consisting of a group of wifi enabled J129/J179's on a IP500v2.

(OP)
A school wants all wifi phones, Approx 180 J129/J179 wifi phones and they want to be able to page them all at once. Assuming their wifi network is up to it, is this possible on a IP500v2. Any limitations on the IP500v2 or J1xx phones & wifi for paging groups?

RE: Paging 180 phones consisting of a group of wifi enabled J129/J179's on a IP500v2.

IIRC, you are limited to 64 phones in a single paging group on an IPO 500V2 system.

J129 and wifi?

Yes, the J129 can do wifi - but its a bit of a joke since it also needs PoE - even if that's done using just an injector, since it doesn't have a socket for a plug-top power supply. So basically it ends up a bit of a Frankenstein unless you can go for a true PoE connection in which case why the wifi. At least the J179 can be powered using a plug-top supply so can be effectively used as a wifi connected device in locations where a LAN ports aren't handy.

Stuck in a never ending cycle of file copying.

Buying all parts, putting all together and configuring that is probably as expensive as buying J179 directly

Wasn't aware of the no 5v plug on the J129, POE only. Yep J179 all the way. Thx for the info!
