This section describes how to install a wall mount for the Cisco Unfilled IP Phone 8961, 9951, and 9971.

Figure E-1 Wall Mount Kit for a Single Phone Assembly

The package includes these items:

1 phone bracket

1 wall bracket

4 10-12x1 inch Phillips-head screws with 4 anchors

1 sheet metal screw

2 4-40x1/4 inch machine screws

1 six-inch Ethernet cable

1 key if the bracket includes the optional lock

Before You Begin

You will need these tools to install the bracket:

#1 and #2 Phillips-head screwdrivers

Level

You must also install an Ethernet jack for the telephone in the desired location if an Ethernet jack does not currently exist. This jack must be wired appropriately for an Ethernet connection. You cannot use a regular telephone jack. For more information on phone installation requirements and warnings, see the Setting Up the Cisco Unified IP Phone chapter.

Installing the Bracket

To install the phone on the wall, perform the following steps:

Procedure


Step 1 Mount the wall bracket in the desired location (Figure E-2). You can install the bracket over an Ethernet jack, or you can run the Ethernet network cable to a jack nearby.

a. Use the Level to ensure the bracket is level, then use a pencil to mark the screw holes.

b. Using a #2 Phillips-head screwdriver, carefully center the anchor over the pencil mark and press the anchor into the wall.

c. Screw the anchor clockwise into the wall until it is seated flush.

d. Use the included screws and a #2 Phillips-head screwdriver to attach the bracket to the wall.

Figure E-2 Mounting the Wall Bracket

Step 2 Attach the phone bracket to the IP phone (Figure E-3).

a. Detach the handset cord (and headset cord, if there is a headset), power cord, and any other attached cords from the base of the phone.

b. Remove the label covers that are concealing the screw holes.

c. Attach the phone bracket by inserting the tabs into the mounting tabs on the phone. The phone's ports should be accessible through the holes in the bracket.

d. Secure the phone bracket to the IP Phone with the machine screws.

e. Thread the handset cord (and headset cord, if using one). Reattach the cords and seat them in the clips incorporated into the phone body.

Figure E-3 Attaching the Phone Bracket

Step 3 Remove the handset wall hook in the handset rest, rotate the hook 180 degrees, and reinsert the hook. The hook should have a lip on which the handset catches when the phone is vertical (Figure E-4).

Figure E-4 Preparing the Handset Hook

Step 4 Attach the Ethernet cable to the 10/100/1000 SW network port and wall jack.

If you are connecting a network device (such as a computer) to the phone, attach the cable to the 10/100/1000 Computer (PC access) port.

If you are using an external power supply, plug the power cord into the phone and dress the cord by clipping it into the clips incorporated into the phone body next to the PC port (Figure E-5).

Figure E-5 Attaching the Cables

Step 5 Attach the phone to the wall bracket by inserting the tabs on the top of the phone bracket into the slots on the wall bracket. Ensure that the power cord and any other cable that does not terminate in the wall behind the bracket are positioned in one of the cable-access openings in the bottom of the bracket. The phone and wall brackets' openings together form circular openings with room for one cable per opening (Figure E-6).

Step 6 Use the locking key to lock the phone to the wall bracket.

Installing the Bracket

To install the phone on the wall, perform the following steps:


Note Be sure to connect to connect the Cisco Unified IP Phone to the Key Expansion Module prior to installing the phone bracket.


Procedure


Step 1 Mount the wall bracket in the desired location (Figure E-8). You can install the bracket over an Ethernet jack, or you can run the Ethernet network cable to a jack nearby.

a. Use the level to ensure the bracket is level, then use a pencil to mark the screw holes.

b. Using a #2 Phillips-head screwdriver, carefully center the anchor over the pencil mark and press the anchor into the wall.

c. Screw the anchor clockwise into the wall until it is seated flush.

d. Use the included screws and a #2 Phillips-head screwdriver to attach the bracket to the wall.

Step 2 Attach the phone bracket to the IP phone and key expansion assembly (Figure E-9).

a. Detach the handset cord (and headset cord, if there is a headset), power cord, and any other attached cords from the base of the phone.

b. Remove the label covers that are concealing the screw holes.

c. Attach the phone bracket by inserting the tabs into the mounting tabs on the phone. The phone's ports should be accessible through the holes in the bracket.

d. Secure the phone bracket to the IP Phone with the machine screws.

e. Thread the handset cord (and headset cord, if using one). Reattach the cords and seat them in the clips incorporated into the phone body.

Step 4 Attach the Ethernet cable to the 10/100/1000 SW Network port and wall jack.

If you are connecting a network device (such as a computer) to the phone, attach the cable to the 10/100/1000 Computer (PC access) port.

If you are using an external power supply, plug the power cord into the phone and dress the cord by clipping it into the clips incorporated into the phone body next to the port (Figure E-11).

Step 5 Attach the phone to the wall bracket by inserting the tabs on the top of the phone bracket into the slots on the wall bracket. Ensure that the power cord and any other cable that does not terminate in the wall behind the bracket are positioned in one of the cable-access openings in the bottom of the bracket. The phone and wall brackets' openings together form circular openings with room for one cable per opening (Figure E-12).

Step 6 Use the locking key to lock the phone to the wall bracket.
