Being able to use the same sip extension on two devices

Hello everyone, is it possible to use the same extension on two devices, and if a call comes in, I can answer from either of the two devices?

If you use PJSIP, you can increase the maximum contacts and register more than 1 device.

With that being said, it is recommended to rather create an additional device under the same extension than using multiple contacts.

What are the advantages? Thanks.

  1. You can provision each device
  2. You can have different device profiles, very useful when one device is behind NAT and the other isn’t.
  3. You can set different dispatchable locations per device.
  4. You can control which device should ring for incoming calls

I’m sure that there’s more…
