Features of your Cisco Unified IP 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, call forward, and more.
In addition, because conference stations connect to your data network, they offer enhanced IP telephony
features, including access to network information and 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.
