The Model 8600 requires either an individual power supply unit or a centralized
power source to power the endpoint. Check with your system administrator about the
specific power requirements for your endpoint.
Before connecting a power supply unit, make sure it is compatible with your end-
point. The following individual power supply units are compatible with the Model
Inter-Tel Power Supply Unit (Part Number 806.1114/806.1117 in Europe)
Red Hawk Single Port PowerSense

Your system may be configured to use a centralized power source (power over Ether-

point uses power over Ethernet, do not connect an individual power supply unit to the
The Model 8600 endpoint has a jack located on the back of the endpoint used to con-
nect a handset or headset. In addition to the handset/headset jack, the Model 8600 has
a LAN connector required for an IP endpoint. Two light-emitting diodes (LEDs) on
the LAN/Power jack indicate link status and the speed of the connection.
The Model 8600 endpoint connectors include:
Headset/Handset Jack: Connects to a headset or handset.
LAN/Power Jack: Connects to a network hub or a switch.
For more information about your endpoint's connectors, power supply, and supported
ethernet devices, contact your network administrator.
