Cisco IP Phone 8800 Series-Easy to Use & Manage, High Secure

Cisco IP Phone 8800 Series

Cisco IP Phone 8800 Series includes five models to support a wide variety of users: the IP Phone 8811, 8841, 8851, and 8861 models and the IP Conference Phone 8831.

With the Cisco IP Phone 8800 Series, it all begins with voice communications. The IP Phone 8800 Series are the best audio performing IP phones Cisco has delivered. Wideband (G.722) audio is supported on all five models and the 8811, 8841, 8851, and 8861 models are hardware-enhanced for higher performance on echo cancellation, meeting European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) compliance. In addition, vibration isolation of the hardware has been applied to both speakers and microphones, resulting in a higher-quality communications experience.

Although not a feature of Intelligent Proximity because the IP Phone 8851 and 8861 models offer USB support, you can even charge your personal mobile devices from the USB ports on these phones as an added convenience. Select models of the Cisco IP Phone 8800 Series support multiple-call-per-line appearance. With multiple-call-per-line appearance, you can take advantage of more sophisticated call-navigation capabilities with support for multiple call sessions on a per-line basis. For example, you can be on an active call and navigate to pick up a second incoming call on the same line, while the first call is automatically placed on hold. You can then switch back and forth between these two call sessions, as required. This capability offers your organization sophisticated and powerful communication options that are not typically available from other communication systems.

Common user features to the IP Phone 8811, 8841, 8851, and 8861 models follow:

  • Support of up to five lines and multiple-callper-line appearance for added flexibility in call management
  • More intuitive, easier-to-use user experience with the highest-resolution, backlit, graphical widescreen VGA, 800- x 480-pixel displays in the Cisco IP Phone portfolio (grayscale or color is model-dependent)
  • Increased productivity with easier navigation of menus and call transaction states using the five-way navigation cluster and four context-sensitive soft-label keys
  • Enhanced tactile feel and reduced errant dialing with rounded ergonomic fixed keys
  • Fixed keys for commonly used functions including messaging, directory, services, transfer, conference, mute, headset, speakerphone, hold, and release.

IT features common to the IP Phone 8811, 8841, 8851, and 8861 models include:

  • Flexible deployment options with support from Cisco communication servers, whether on-premises or based in the cloud
  • Support for 802.3af/at Power over Ethernet (PoE) to reduce installation and infrastructure costs by eliminating or reducing the need for local power supplies.
  • Gigabit Ethernet integrated switches on all models to reduce IT administration and cabling costs at the desk while efficiently and effectively processing the traffic from a collocated multimedia PC.
  • Integrated VPN client to help keep conversations private.
  • Reduced energy costs and carbon footprint in off-work hours with support from Cisco EnergyWise technology.
