I see that the BE6KS supports 50 users/groups of paging, my question is the following. Is this supported as is out of the box or do I need to add the license? or are they the same basic license as the BE6K?
Out of the box, BE6S supports the "Basic" feature-set of the InformaCast Paging software (same as the BE6M/H). Remember, the basic software only allows for phone-to-phone paging. You'll need to purchase the Advanced licensing if you're looking to incorporate the "Advanced" feature set, such as integration with overhead paging systems, text to IP phone, etc.
Here's Cisco's doc stating what's included:
Cisco Paging Server provides paging capabilities for all users. It supports basic and advanced paging features. Basic paging features require no license and allow point-to-point or group audio paging between groups of up to 50 Cisco IP Phones. An advanced paging license allows unlimited paging groups. It also makes possible other advanced functions, including paging to overhead analog and IP speakers, bell scheduling, prioritizing emergency notifications with the call-barge option, prerecorded and text-only pages, integration with social media sites for notification, email and Short Message Service (SMS) mass notification and all-number monitoring, Emergency Services alerting, and integration with Jabber clients.
