    With a cloud hosted server it is currently not possible to use multicast paging groups. It would be helpful if this could be setup through the SBC.

    We setup multicast paging in a template change on the yealink config. it works pretty well, and the 3CX server is hosted out in the cloud.

    DocTechAZ is correct, setting up multicast through phone template is the way to go, as an alternative use a multicast paging server like the CyberData Paging Server or ALGO 8301 may work for your needs.

    If 3CX could simply provision the listening address and allow button configuration for multicast, that is all you need. Quite simply, there is no reason why the server needs to be involved in a multicast page. Yealink and Grandstream just need the listening address configured, and a button programmed on the set to initiate a multicast page (which could be provisioned via BLF). As it sits, the only way around this is custom template, which then pulls the sets from being supported by 3CX.
