Mounting the base station

You can mount the base station on a wall or ceiling, or set on a flat surface. Prior to mounting the base station, consider the following:
  • A location that is higher than cubicle wall height provides better coverage.

  • The base station must be readily accessible for resetting and registration procedures.

  • The base station receives power through PoE, so the base station must be within range of the Ethernet cable providing the power.

Beware of metal surfaces or concrete thickness greater than 3 feet (1 meter) that might cause signal interference.

Note that multiple base stations in the same location must be at least 17 feet (5 meters) away from each other.

Ensure that you register the appropriate repeaters prior to mounting the base station in the environment. Registering repeaters prior to mounting the base station helps to avoid signal disruptions and unnecessary traveling between repeater and base station. See Repeater registration.

Standing the base station on a flat surface

  • To stand the base station on a flat surface, first plug the Ethernet cable into the slot on the back of the base station until you hear it click.





Mounting the base station on a wall or ceiling

To mount the base station on a wall or ceiling, use the following procedure. Note that you will not require the base attachment.

Before you begin

Refer to the following diagram to determine the required mounting space for the base station, which is 12 cm (4.7 in) by 20.3 cm (8 in).



Procedure

  1. Screw the mounting screws directly into the wall or ceiling, or using the wall anchors provided. Install the screws 8.3 cm apart vertically, in a space that has 4.5 cm clearance above the top screw, 6 cm clearance to either side, and 7.5 cm clearance below the bottom screw.

    Leave the screw heads about 2 mm out from the mounting surface.

  2. Plug the Ethernet cable into the slot on the back of the base station until you hear it click.
  3. Ensure that the cable is securely attached and not disrupted, then mount the base station on the screws installed in step 1.

Next Steps

After installing and connecting the base station to IP Office, register the handsets and install the appropriate repeaters for that base station.
