Remote IP Handset

Handset Types

Any of the below IP Handsets can work remotely, ie from Home. They require power when they are not connected to the POE switch in the office, see below instructions for each handset type and what is required to get them working from home.

9000 Series IP and Digital Handset
8000 Series IP Handset
Yealink Hosted Handset

Power supplies

There are a few different types of power supplies and power injectors, A standard power adapter just needs to plug into the wall power point and the back of the phone handset. A POE Injector like the TP Link below needs to plug into the wall and then provides power to the phone via the ethernet cable, in this case the POE port connects to the phone and the LAN port connects to one of the LAN ports on the modem.

Yealink Hosted Handsets

The Yealink handsets just require internet, so will work automatically from home as long as it is plugged into the modem/router LAN port and connected to power or a POE injector.

 

LG iPECS 8000 Series IP Phone

To work remotely the iPECS phones require some port forwarding on the office modem/router, this can be organised by Focus and/or your IT provider, please send us an email to arrange this.

 

Once the handset is powered on and connected to a LAN port on the modem you can do the following:

Wait until the phone screen displays Local No ACK (or something similar)

Press * to enter programming

Enter the password 147*

You should see MFIM #[1/2]? Press # to change the profile and press hold/save - If you want to use the phone in the office you can then just change this back by only doing this step.
