It's important to know the safety and security rules for your DECT handset before an emergency occurs. That way, you'll know what to do if you have a power outage, your network gets congested, or a power source issue occurs. You'll also learn about product security.
Safety and Performance Information
Read the following safety notices before installing or using your IP phone.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
This warning symbol means danger. You are in a situation that could cause bodily injury. Before you work on any equipment, be aware of the hazards involved with electrical circuitry and be familiar with standard practices for preventing accidents. Use the statement number provided at the end of each warning to locate its translation in the translated safety warnings that accompanied this device. Statement 1071
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
To see translations of the warnings that appear in this publication, refer to the statement number in the Regulatory Compliance and Safety Information—Cisco IP DECT 6800 Series at the following URL: https://www.cisco.com/c/dam/en/us/td/docs/voice_ip_comm/cuipph/MPP/6825/RCSI/RCSI-0366-book.pdf
Read the installation instructions before using, installing, or connecting the system to the power source. Statement 1004
Voice over IP (VoIP) service and the emergency calling service do not function if power fails or is disrupted. After power is restored, you might have to reset or reconfigure equipment to regain access to VoIP and the emergency calling service. In the USA, this emergency number is 911. You need to be aware of the emergency number in your country. Statement 361
Ultimate disposal of this product should be handled according to all national laws and regulations. Statement 1040
The plug-socket combination must be accessible at all times because it serves as the main disconnecting device. Statement 1019
The following are safety guidelines for using the Cisco IP DECT 6800 Series in specific environments:
Do not use this product as the primary communications tool in healthcare environments, as it may use an unregulated frequency band that is susceptible to interference from other devices or equipment.
The use of wireless devices in hospitals is restricted to the limits set forth by each hospital.
The use of wireless devices in hazardous locations is limited to the constraints posed by the safety directors of such environments.
The use of wireless devices on airplanes is governed by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
Battery Safety Notices
These battery safety notices apply to the batteries that are approved for the Cisco IP DECT 6800 Series.
There is the danger of explosion if the battery is replaced incorrectly. Replace the battery only with the same or equivalent type recommended by the manufacturer. Dispose of used batteries according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Statement 1015
Do not touch or bridge the metal contacts on the battery. Unintentional discharge of the batteries can cause serious burns. Statement 341
Explosion Hazard: Do not charge the phone battery in a potentially explosive environment. Statement 431
To obtain a battery, contact your local dealer. Use only the batteries that have a Cisco part number.
The ability to access emergency service through the phone depends on the base stations being powered. If there is an interruption in the power supply, Service and Emergency Calling Service dialing will not function until power is restored. In the case of a power failure or disruption, you may need to reset or reconfigure equipment before using the Service or Emergency Calling Service dialing.
The radio frequency (RF) for the handset is controlled by the base station. The base station is configured for a specific regulatory domain. If you use this system outside of the specific regulatory domain, the system will not function properly, and you might violate local regulations.
This product is not a medical device and uses an unlicensed frequency band that is susceptible to interference from other devices or equipment.
External Devices Usage
The following information applies when you use external devices with the DECT handset.
Cisco recommends the use of good quality external devices (such as headsets) that are shielded against unwanted radio frequency (RF) and audio frequency (AF) signals.
Depending on the quality of these devices and their proximity to other devices such as mobile phones or two-way radios, some audio noise may still occur. In these cases, Cisco recommends that you take one or more of the following actions:
Move the external device away from the source of the RF or AF signals.
Route the external device cables away from the source of the RF or AF signals.
Use shielded cables for the external device, or use cables with a better shield and connector.
Shorten the length of the external device cable.
Apply ferrites or other such devices on the cables for the external device.
Cisco cannot guarantee the performance of the system because Cisco has no control over the quality of external devices, cables, and connectors. The system will perform adequately when suitable devices are attached using good quality cables and connectors.
In European Union countries, use only external headsets that are fully compliant with the EMC Directive [89/336/EC].
System Behavior During Times of Network Congestion
Anything that degrades network performance can affect phone system voice quality, and in some cases, can cause a call to drop. Sources of network degradation can include, but are not limited to, the following activities:
Administrative tasks, such as an internal port scan or security scan
Attacks that occur on your network, such as a Denial of Service attack

Canadian RF Exposure Statement
THIS DEVICE MEETS THE LIMITS AS REFERENCED BY ISED RSS-102 R5 FOR EXPOSURE TO RADIO WAVES
Your device includes a radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed not to exceed the General populace (uncontrolled) limits for exposure to radio waves (radio frequency electromagnetic fields) as referenced in RSS-102 which references Health Canada Safety Code 6 and include a substantial safety margin designed to assure the safety of all persons, regardless of age and health.
As such the systems are designed to be operated as to avoid contact with the antennas by the end user. It is recommended to set the system in a location where the antennas can remain at least a minimum distance as specified from the user in accordance to the regulatory guidelines which are designed to reduce the overall exposure of the user or operator.
The device has been tested and found compliant with the applicable regulations as part of the radio certification process.
Déclaration d'Exposition aux RF Canadienne
CE PÉRIPHÉRIQUE RESPECTE LES LIMITES DÉCRITES PAR LA NORME RSS-102 R5 D'EXPOSITION À DES ONDES RADIO

Permit to Connect (PTC) General Warning
The grant of a Telepermit for any item of terminal equipment indicates only that Telecom has accepted that the item complies with minimum conditions for connection to its network. It indicates no endorsement of the product by Telecom, nor does it provide any sort of warranty. Above all, it provides no assurance that any item will work correctly in all respects with another item of Telepermitted equipment of a different make or model, nor does it imply that any product is compatible with all of Telecom's network services.
Use of IP Networks with the PSTN
Internet Protocol (IP) by its nature introduces delay into speech signals as each data packet is formulated and addressed. Telecom Access Standards recommends that suppliers, designers and installers using this technology for calls to or from the PSTN refer to ITU E Model requirements in the design of their networks. The overall aim is to minimise delay, distortion and other transmission impairments, particularly for those calls involving cellular and international networks, which already suffer extensive delay.
The Use of Voice Compression Through the PSTN
Because of the extensive delay already experienced when calling cellular and international networks, some of which is already caused by their use of voice compression technologies. Telecom Access Standards will only approve G711 voice technology for use on the PSTN. G711 is an ‘instantaneous speech-encoding technique’ whereas G729 and all its variants are considered ‘near instantaneous’ introducing additional delay into the speech signal.
Echo cancelers are not normally required in the Telecom PSTN because geographic delays are acceptable where CPE return loss is maintained within Telepermit limits. However, those private networks that make use of Voice-over-IP (VoIP) technology are required to provide echo cancellation for all voice calls. The combined effect of audio/VoIP conversion delay and IP routing delay can cause the echo cancellation time of 64 mS to be required.
