Safety and performance information
The following sections provide information about the impact of power outages and external devices on your
Cisco Unified IP Phone.
Power outage
Your access to emergency service through the phone depends on the phone being powered. If there is a power
interruption, Service and Emergency Calling Service dialing will not function until power is restored. In case
of a power failure or disruption, you may need to reset or reconfigure the equipment before using the Service
or Emergency Calling Service dialing.
External devices
Cisco recommends using good quality external devices such as headsets, cables, and connectors that are
shielded against unwanted radio frequency (RF) and audio frequency (AF) signals.

Preface
Cisco product security overview
Note
Not all Cisco IP Telephony products support external devices, cords or cables. For more information,
consult the documentation for your phone.
Depending on the quality of these devices and their proximity to other devices such as mobile phones or
two-way radios, some audio noise may still occur. In these cases, Cisco recommends that you take one or
more of these actions:
• Move the external device away from the source of the RF or AF signals.
• Route the external device cables away from the source of the RF or AF signals.
• Use shielded cables for the external device, or use cables with a better shield and connector.
• Shorten the length of the external device cable.
• Apply ferrites or other such devices on the cables for the external device.
Cisco cannot guarantee the performance of external devices, cables, and connectors.
Caution
In European Union countries, use only external speakers, microphones, and headsets that are fully compliant
with the EMC Directive [89/336/EC].

CHAPTER
2
Features of your Cisco Unified IP Conference
Phone
The Cisco Unified IP Conference Phone 8831 is a full-featured single line conference station that provides
voice communication over an IP network. It functions much like a digital business phone, allowing you to
place and receive calls and to access features such as mute, hold, transfer, speed dial, and call forward. In
addition, because conference stations connect to your data network, they offer enhanced IP telephony features,
including access to network information, network services, and customizable features and services.
The conference station provides a backlit LCD screen, support for up to ten speed-dial numbers, and a variety
of other sophisticated functions. Optional microphone extension kits provide enhanced room coverage that
can be further expanded by linking two units together.
In addition to basic call-handling features, your conference station can provide enhanced productivity features
that extend your call-handling capabilities. Depending on configuration, the conference station supports:
• Access to network data, XML applications, and web-based services.
• Online customizing of conference station features and services from your User Options web pages.
• Buttons and hardware, page 5
• Phone screen, page 13
• Phone connections, page 14
• General IP Phone information, page 17
• Feature availability, page 18
Buttons and hardware
The Conference Phone has two primary components:
• Display Control Unit (DCU)
• Sound Base
In addition, the following optional extension kits can be added to or used with the conference phone:

Features of your Cisco Unified IP Conference Phone
LED state definitions
• Wired Microphone Extension Kit
• Wireless Microphone Extension Kit and Charger
For your conference phone to work, it must be connected to the corporate IP telephony network.
LED state definitions
LEDs on the Sound Base and DCU provide information about the state of the conference phone.
For example, green flashing lights on the Sound Base and on the DCU Call button indicate that there is an
incoming call. If the conference phone is on mute, then an incoming call will still flash green on the Call
button, but the LED for the DCU mute button is solid red, the sound base LEDs are solid red, and the mute
button on the Sound Base is also solid red.
The following table is a guide to the behaviour of the LEDs on the sound base and the DCU.

Microphone. IC: 2461B-MICWR0776
Wired extension microphone kit
The optional wired extension microphone kit includes two wired omni-directional microphones. Connecting
a microphone kit enhances the room coverage of the conference phone. The sound base has two wired
microphone ports and you can connect one or both wired microphones.
If the conference phone is connected to another sound base in Linked Mode, the primary base station supports
one or two wireless microphones, or it supports one wired microphone. The secondary unit supports only one
wired microphone; a wireless microphone cannot be connected to a secondary Sound Base. You cannot mix
microphone kits: if you plan to connect a microphone to both sound bases, they must both be wired microphones.
Note
Wired and wireless microphones cannot be used at the same time, and the wireless microphones have a
higher priority. Attempting to connect a wired microphone to a conference phone that has paired or
connected channels results in a warning to the user that the wired microphone is disabled. To solve this
problem, unpair any paired or connected wireless microphones before connecting a wired microphone.

General IP Phone information
Power-saving mode
Your conference station supports the Cisco EnergyWise (EW) program. Your system administrator sets up
sleep (power down) and wake (power up) times for your conference station to save energy. In the sleep state,
the LED for the sound base Mute button becomes solid gray, and the DCU powers off.

Features of your Cisco Unified IP Conference Phone
Feature availability
Ten minutes before the scheduled sleep time, you receive a message that the conference station will power
down at a specific time. If the power-saving mode is enabled by your system administrator, you hear your
ringtone play. The ringtone plays according to the following schedule:
• At 10 minutes before power down, the ringtone plays four times
• At 7 minutes before power down, the ringtone plays four times
• At 4 minutes before power down, the ringtone plays four times
• At 30 seconds before power down, the ringtone plays 15 times or until the phone powers down
If your conference station is inactive (idle) at the sleep time, it powers down. If your conference station is
active (for example, on a call), it waits until it has been inactive for a period of time before removing power.
After the conference station goes to sleep, press the Mute button on the sound base to wake the conference
station up. You cannot wake the conference station using the DCU. After the conference station is inactive
for a period of time, it goes back to sleep. At the set wake time, the conference station powers up.
Wake and sleep times are also linked to the configured days that you normally work. If your requirements

Linked Mode
Two conference phone Sound Base units can be linked together to expand the audio coverage area. One Sound
Base acts as the primary device, and the other unit acts as the dependant or secondary device.
In Linked Mode, the primary base station supports either one wireless or one wired microphone. The secondary
unit supports only one wired microphone. You cannot mix microphone kits: if you plan to connect a microphone
to both sound bases, they must both be wired microphones.
The voice, dial tone, ringer, and base LED features synchronize between the two devices when linked together.
You can link two sound bases while a call is active.
When Linked Mode is active, the linked mode icon displays in the idle and the call screens.
The following table summarizes the best practice to follow when deploying your conference phones in Linked
Mode. If the devices are linked in this manner, the system software automatically detects which device is to
be used as the primary and which is the secondary one.

When using a Sound Base in Linked Mode, the primary base unit must be connected using the
CP-PWR-CUBE-3 external power supply.
If two devices are linked after both are registered, the user can select which is the primary device.
A secondary device receives upgrades to firmware seamlessly from the primary device.

Use a daisy cable to connect two sound base units in Linked mode. This procedure describes the best practice
for connecting the two units.
Procedure

Connect the power cable to the primary device and plug into a wall plug.
The secondary Sound Base does not need to be plugged into external power, but in Linked Mode the primary
unit must be connected to external power.
Step 4
Use the provided daisy cable to connect the primary unit to the secondary sound base.
Voice, dial tone, ringer and base LEDs synchronize between the two units.

Answer
Answer allows you to answer the oldest call that is available on the conference station, including Hold Reversion
and Park Reversion calls that are in an alerting state. Incoming calls always have priority over Held or Park
Reversion calls.
When you get a call, you see a notification on the conference station screen. The call notification remains
visible for a preset amount of time. If there are multiple, simultaneous incoming calls, an incoming call list
window is displayed, and you can select which call to answer.
To answer a call, press Answer or press the Call key.
If an incoming call has been call forwarded from another phone or conference station, you may see additional
information to identify that the call has been forwarded. Your system administrator controls the amount of
additional information displayed. Additional information can identify the person who forwarded the call to
you and the caller information.
When you receive a call, the phone number that displays on the screen contains the string of digits that you
can dial to contact the caller. The digit string can contain the following digits, if required:
• Code to obtain an outside line (for example, if you have to dial 9)
• Long-distance code
Cisco Unified IP Conference Phone 8831 User Guide for Cisco Unified Communications Manager 9.0

Call Back
• Area code
• City code
• Telephone number
The conference station saves the complete digit string in the call history and you can save the number in your

• Unconditional call forwarding (Call Forward All): Applies to all calls that you receive.
• Conditional call forwarding (Call Forward No Answer, Call Forward Busy, Call Forward No Coverage):
Applies to certain calls that you receive.
If configured, you can set up Call Forward All from the conference station. Call Forward All can also be
accessed remotely from your User Options web pages. Conditional call forwarding rules can only be accessed
from your User Options web pages.
When forwarding calls from your conference station:
• Enter the call forward target number exactly as you would dial it from the conference station. For
example, enter an access code or the area code, if necessary.

If multiple calls are available for pick up, the conference station picks up the oldest call first.
• Group Pickup: Allows you to answer a call on a phone that is outside your call pickup group by:
◦Using a group pickup number that is provided by your system administrator.
◦Dialing the number of the ringing phone.
• Other Pickup: Allows you to answer a call that is ringing on another phone within in your call pickup
group or in an associated call pickup group.

Enhanced Room Coverage
Enhanced Room Coverage
Optional microphone extension kits provide enhanced room coverage that can be further expanded by linking
two units together in Linked Mode. This feature allows you to use the conference station in a larger room, or
to enhance the audio and voice experience for larger groups of in-person attendees.
When two conference station base units are linked together to expand the audio coverage area, one conference
station acts as the primary device and the other sound base is the dependant or secondary device. In Linked
Mode, the primary base station supports one or two wireless microphones, or it supports one wired microphone.
The secondary unit supports only one wired microphone; a wireless microphone cannot be connected to a
secondary Sound Base. You cannot mix microphone types on the devices. Consult the following tables for
allowable configurations.
