Restrictions for Music on Hold

Posted by Andy on May 17, 2009

•IP phones do not support multicast at 224.x.x.x addresses.

•Cisco Unified CME 3.3 and earlier versions do not support MOH for local Cisco Unified CME phones that are on hold with other Cisco Unified CME phones; these parties hear a periodic repeating tone instead.

•Cisco Unified CME 4.0 and later versions support MOH for internal calls only if the multicast moh command is used to enable the flow of packets to the subnet on which the phones are located.

•Internal extensions that are connected through a Cisco VG224 Analog Voice Gateway or through a WAN (remote extensions) do not hear MOH on internal calls.

•Multicast MOH is not supported on a phone if the phone is configured with the mtp command or the paging-dn command with the unicast keyword.
