The Cisco IP Phone 7940G features high-quality,
speakerphone technology. It also includes an easy-to-use speaker on/off
button and microphone mute buttons. These buttons are lit when active.
The internal Cisco two-port Ethernet switch allows for a direct
connection to a 10/100BASE-T Ethernet network via an RJ-45 interface
with single LAN connectivity for both the phone and a co-located PC.
The system administrator can designate separate virtual LANs (VLANs)
(802.1Q) for the PC and Cisco IP Phones providing improved security and
reliability of voice and data traffic.
A dedicated headset port eliminates the need for a separate
amplifier when using a headset. This allows the handset to remain in
its cradle, making headset use simpler. The Cisco IP phone's convenient
volume control button provides for easy decibel-level adjustments for
the speakerphone, handset, headset, and ringer. The handset is Hearing
Aid Compatible (HAC) and meets FCC loudness requirements for Americans
with Disabilities Act (ADA). Section 508 loudness requirements can be
achieved using industry standard inline handset amplifiers such as
Walker Equipment W-10 or CE-100 amplifiers.
The dial pad is also ADA compliant.
The footstand of the Cisco 7940G is adjustable from flat to 60
degrees to provide optimum display viewing and comfortable use of all
buttons and keys. The footstand is keyed to match standard wall jack
configurations for wall mounting. Two optional wall mount brackets are
also offered as noted below.
The Cisco IP Phone 7940G can also receive power down the LAN from any of the Cisco inline power-capable blades and boxes.
For added security, the audible dual-tone multifrequency (DTMF) tones are masked when the speakerphone mode is used.
