The process of starting up the phone and registering it with the server does not begin until after the phone has successfully connected to the network.
As soon as the phone is connected, it examines the phone to see if it needs a fresh load of firmware and then installs it if necessary.
1. Determine the type of power supply that will be used for the phone:
- Implementation of Power over Ethernet (PoE) using a Cisco IP Conference Phone 8832 PoE Injector
- Using a Cisco IP Conference Phone 8832 Non-PoE Ethernet Injector for a deployment of Ethernet without Power over Ethernet
2. Establish a connection between the phone and the switch.
- If you are utilizing PoE, ensure that the Ethernet wire is plugged into the LAN port.
a. Connect the other end of the Ethernet wire to either the PoE Injector on the Cisco IP Conference Phone 8832 or the Ethernet Injector on the Cisco IP Conference Phone 8832.
b. Make the connection using the USB-C cable that comes with the injector and the conference phone.
c. Connect the power adapter to the Cisco IP Conference Phone 8832 Ethernet Injector using a USB-C cable if you do not want to utilize PoE.
- If you are
a. utilizing the Cisco IP Conference Phone 8832 Ethernet Injector,
b. ensure that the power adapter is plugged into a working power source.
c. Make the connection between the Ethernet injector and the power adapter using a USB-C cable.
Plug the Cisco IP Conference Phone 8832 Non-PoE Ethernet Injector into a power source if you are using it with a device that requires it.
d. To use the Ethernet injector, you must first connect the Ethernet wire to it.
e. Connect the Ethernet cable by inserting it into either the Ethernet injector or the Non-PoE Ethernet injector.
f. Connect the Ethernet cable to the LAN port on the device.
g. Utilizing a second USB-C connection, join the Ethernet injector to the conference phone in order to use it.
h. Using a USB-C cable, link the conference phone to either the Ethernet injector that does not support PoE or the Ethernet injector itself.
3. Keep an eye on the procedure by which the phone boots up. At this stage, we check to see that the phone has been set up correctly.
4. Give the phone permission to upgrade its firmware to the most recent version.
5. To ensure that the phone and all of its capabilities are functioning properly, try making some calls with it.
