We are looking to purchase a complete cisco phone system. We are getting
hung up on the compatibility of the phones. Two vendors are saying two different things
and both declare they are correct.
We have nearly 20 WS-C3750G-48PS switches. We would like to purchase the 7965G and 7945G
phones and use PoE for them.
One of our vendors is quoting the 7961G and 7941G. They are stating the the 7965G and the
7945G are class 3 power devices (which is true) compared to the 79X1 devices they are
quoting which are class 2 (also true).
The issue is whether or not the Switches will support the power requirements of the 7945G
and 7965G devices.
We require 1Gig connection to the desktop and know that the 7941G and 61G do not support
it. Only the 7941G-GE and the 7961G-GE meet the Gig requirement, but they too are class 3
So, can you help shed any light on this puzzle
