I make some test to prepare a move to VOIP in my company and im kind of beginner with this technology.
i have a Switch Catalyst 3524-PWR XL.
and 3 type of ip-phones:
I made my test with 7940g everything was working fine, then i received 2 new models cp7941g and cp7970g-ge. But when i plug the ethernet cable(connected to switch 3524) the phone dont power on.
i checked on some site and try to active power inline auto on some ports.. but it's change anything.
i dont have any power DC48V... :-P
Can anyone please help.
thanks a lot
the CE500 is the cheaper switch with PoE made by cisco. Is not easy to find an alternative, e.g. switches by linksys have PoE for a limited number of ports only, and do not support pre-standard, etc...
hope this helps, please rete post if it does!
