Polycom SoundPoint IP 650 – Connect Network & Power

You have two options for network and power source connections for your Polycom SoundPoint IP 650. Your System Administrator will advise you on which one to use.

You can use one of the following methods:

AC Power Option.

Connect the supplied network cable between the LAN jack on the phone and the LAN port on the wall or hub/switch device port. Connect the DC plug on the power adapter to the DC 24V jack marked on the phone. Connect the country-specific AC cord to the power adapter.

Power over Ethernet (PoE) Option.

Using a regular CAT5 cable (optional accessory from Polycom), the phone can be powered from a PoE (IEEE 802.3af) compliant switch or hub.
