Troubleshooting tips: 

1. If paging is not working, try adding Alert-Info: Answer-After = 0 to the Extension's configuration under the Custom SIP Header.

2. Ensure that the Extension is registered only on one device. 

3. Ensure that auto-answer and intercom are enabled on the phone itself. 

the SNOM phones will need some manual configuration for Speakerphone Paging to work. In phone's web interface under Advanced -> Behavior, you will need to set:

Enable Intercom - On
Type of Intercom Answering - Handsfree
'Answer after' Policy - Always
