After the phone connects to the network, the phone startup process begins, and the phone registers with the server.

After the phone connects, it determines if a new firmware load should be installed on the phone.

1

Choose the power source for the phone:

  • Power over Ethernet (PoE) deployment with a Cisco IP Conference Phone 8832 PoE Injector

  • Non-PoE Ethernet deployment with a Cisco IP Conference Phone 8832 Non-PoE Ethernet Injector

2

Connect the phone to the switch.

  • If you use PoE:
    1. Plug the Ethernet cable into the LAN port.

    2. Plug the other end of the Ethernet cable into either the Cisco IP Conference Phone 8832 PoE Injector or the Cisco IP Conference Phone 8832 Ethernet Injector.

    3. Connect the injector to the conference phone with the USB-C cable.

  • If you do not use PoE:
    1. Connect the power adapter to the Cisco IP Conference Phone 8832 Ethernet Injector using a USB-C cable.

    2. If you are using the Cisco IP Conference Phone 8832 Ethernet Injector, plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet.

    3. Connect the power adapter to the Ethernet injector using a USB-C cable.

      OR

      If you are using the Cisco IP Conference Phone 8832 Non-PoE Ethernet Injector, plug it into an electrical outlet.

    4. Plug the Ethernet cable into the Ethernet injector.

    5. Plug the Ethernet cable into the Non-PoE Ethernet injector or the Ethernet injector.

    6. Plug the Ethernet cable into the LAN port.

    7. Connect the Ethernet injector to the conference phone using a second USB-C cable.

    8. Connect the Non-PoE Ethernet injector or the Ethernet injector to the conference phone using a USB-C cable.

3

Monitor the phone startup process. This step verifies that the phone is configured properly.

4

Allow the phone to upgrade to the current firmware image.

5

Make calls with the phone to verify that the phone and features work correctly.
