My company have signed up for BT Business Broadband. We have IP Phones supplied by an external company. We have been led to believe that BT Business Broadband blocks IP Phones other than their own. Is this true?
Also, we have foolishly bought a switch for 28 computers/phones, but didn't think of PoE (Particularly handy for cable management). To be honest Web Development is more our bag and we know base network stuff.
Anyways, The 28-port switch, We are thinking of noting down each port the IP phone is plugged into, and then route that to a switch with PoE capabilities. Would this then power the phones, or would the original switch need to do that?
