We have a room with 5 ethernet jacks and want to use 15 phones. Is there a way to daisy chain the phones together to make them all functional in an enviroment of jack reduction?

If so how can we do this?

I've not yet tried this option, but I think it may work....Add a switch, connect switch to the wall jack and connect phone to the switch.

If you want, you can plug the phones into each other, as long as they're all on the same VLAN.

You'll just lose the PoE capability after the first one, though.
