8.2 Recommendations
The following recommendations will assist you with planning, ordering, and installing
your telephones:
Select your telephones based on user requirements, your wiring infrastructure, and
system objectives.
Order your telephones early. If you need a large quantity of them, you will need to
order them several weeks in advance.
Have your cabling contractor place and test all your telephones. Have the
contractor unpack, assemble, place, and test every telephone so that you can avoid
this simple but time-consuming task.
If the telephone you choose requires local power, make sure there is an available
outlet at each location.
8.3 Application Considerations
8.3.1 General Users
Typically, most users will be satisfied with a standard desk telephone that has a
speakerphone and mute button, and supports Caller ID and Message Waiting. ShoreTel IP
phones are fully featured and appropriate for most uses. IP phones come with the ShoreTel
features available on preprogrammed buttons, and they can be deployed in areas where
there are no computers to run the Personal Call Manager.
