Ring a SIP phone and an ATA at the same time, any issues ?

    I'm setting up 3CX to replace our current phone system (a Samsung Compact DCS II, a digital phone system), and on our shop floor we have a single phone that has an analogue port presented on the rear of it that connects to a bell so that the ring of an incoming call can be heard over loud machinery.

    Now with a SIP phone I can't immediately replicate this setup ?. I'm not aware of any SIP phone that presents an analogue port on the rear (allmost an integrated ATA ?).

    So all I can think of is to install a SIP phone registered to the virtual extension, and then install an ATA which is also registered to the same extension and connected to the bell. Am I correct in thinking that with 3CX more than one device can be registered to a virtual extension so that in theory the above solution would work ?.

    Thanks.

    Yes you can do that.

    Your other choice would be to set up a second extension with the ATA as that 2nd extension and then create a ring group with Ring All and add those two extensions.
