a question about the power dissipation of the 2851 router (a thing I'm not able to extract from the datasheet).

The 360W AC power dissipation indicated in the 2851 datasheet at the voice:'with IP Phone support-IP Phones', to how many IP Phones connected to the router is referred ?

I understand that number represents the total power dissipation of the system composed by the 2851 and a certain number of IP-Phones connected to it and powered via POE directly by the router: is that so ?

Thanks a lot in advance.

Yes, it is so. You can connect for example 36 phones with NMD-36ESW-PWR.
