Connecting Your Phone


Connecting Your Phone


Your system administrator will likely connect your new Cisco IP Phone to the corporate IP telephony network. If that is not the case, refer to the graphic and table below to connect your phone.

1

Network (Ethernet) port (10 BASE T)

2

Handset port

3

DC adaptor port (DC48V)

4

Power supply with DC output connector (Optional. Required only if power is not supplied through an Ethernet connection.)

5

Power cable with wall AC plug. Provided if your phone uses external power

   


Caution If you plan to power your phone locally (instead of receiving power thorough the Ethernet connection), use only a Cisco 48 volt power supply designed to work with a Cisco  IP  Phone.

Adjusting the Handset Rest

When you connect your phone, you might want to adjust the handset rest to ensure that the receiver will not slip out of the cradle. See the table below for instructions.

1

Set the handset aside and pull the square plastic tab from the handset rest.

2

Rotate the tab 180 degrees.

3

Slide the tab back into the handset rest. An extension protrudes from the top of the rotated tab. Return the handset to the handset rest.


Registering with TAPS

After your phone is connected to the network, your system administrator might ask you to auto-register your phone using TAPS (Tool for Auto-Registered Phones Support). TAPS might be used either for a new phone or to replace an existing phone.

To register with TAPS, pick up the handset, enter the TAPS extension provided by your system administrator, and follow the voice prompts. You might need to enter your entire extension, including the area code. After your phone displays a confirmation message, hang up. The phone will re-start.
