Digital and analog phones in Tandem

Digital and analog phones in Tandem

Digital and analog phones in Tandem

Trying to tandem up a 2030 digital phone and a DECT analog phone and having them both ring at the same time,having the ability to answer from either phone, however when either of these phones is being used then the extension is busy and will give an engaged signal if someone else trys to call.
Covering extension handles the first part of the problem, but leaves the digital on hook and available if answered on the DECT.
I have a setup as listed below:

Graham main phone....extn 740
Graham DECT..........extn 840
coverage on 740 is extn 840

740 is the listed number for Graham

someone rings Graham on 740 and he can answer it from either 740 or 840, however when he answers it from 840 another call can come in to 740. Graham does not want this!!

I guess all I am wanting is true tandem meaning if either extn is busy..both are busy. Is this possible???

At this point the only way I can see is with an analog desk phone hard wired to an analog dect port. But the customer wants 2030 deskphones.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

You need the dect Integration Licence & the dect integration application supplied on the admin CD

Hey Grahem A fellow Kiwi, as the gooroo says we have sites in Auck that use the Dect Integration, works really well.
