Feature Hardware Ergonomic design Customization The phone offers a highly usable and intuitive arrangement of lines, features, and calls. Transfer, Conference and Hold appear on hard keys to reduce the number of presented softkeys to a maximum of 4 per call state. You can order this model in Arctic White or Charcoal Gray. Handsets are available internationally as slimline (140g) or standard (170g); you can mix and match them with other users within your work environment to enable a feeling of customization and ownership among your group. The phone offers a VGA presentation for calling, video calling, and applications; a 5-inch (10-cm) graphical TFT color display; 24-bit color depth; and 640 x 480 effective pixel resolution with backlighting. The display also supports localization requiring double-byte Unicode encoding for fonts. An internal 2-port Cisco Ethernet switch allows for a direct connection to a 10/100/1000BASE-T Ethernet network through an RJ-45 interface with single LAN connectivity for both the phone and a co-located PC. The system administrator can designate separate VLANs (802.1Q) for the PC and phone, providing improved security and reliability of voice and data traffic. A USB port accelerates the usability of call handling and applications by enabling accessories such as the Cisco Unified IP Phone Color Key Expansion Module and wired headsets.
