Bias-Free Language

The documentation set for this product strives to use bias-free language. For the purposes of this documentation set, bias-free is defined as language that does not imply discrimination based on age, disability, gender, racial identity, ethnic identity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, and intersectionality.

The Cisco® IP Phone 8811 is a cost-effective, business-class collaboration endpoint that delivers high-fidelity, reliable, secure, and scalable voice communications for small to large enterprise businesses.

Cisco® IP Phone 8811

With the Cisco IP Phone 8811, you can increase personal productivity through an engaging user experience that is both powerful and easy-to-use. The IP Phone 8811 combines an attractive new ergonomic design with wideband audio for crystal clear voice communications, “always-on” reliability, encrypted voice communications to enhance security, and access to a comprehensive suite of unified communications features from Cisco on-premises and hosted infrastructure platforms and third party hosted call control.

The Cisco IP Phone 8811 supports five programmable line keys. You can configure keys to support either multiple directory numbers or calling features such as speed dial. You can also boost productivity by handling multiple calls for each directory number, using the multicall-per-line feature. Fixed-function keys give you one-touch access to applications, messaging, directory, as well as often-used calling features such as hold/resume, transfer, and conference. Backlit acoustic keys provide flexibility for audio path selection and switching.

Additionally, Cisco has adopted circular design principles in its products by pioneering the use of post-consumer recycled plastic. The 8811 is one of the models that now reduces the use of natural resources while closing the loop with its own electronic waste. Learn more about what this means by visiting the Cisco’s Circular Economy website.

Other key features of the phone follow:

     The Cisco IP Phone 8811 offers a 5-in. high-resolution (800 x 480) widescreen backlit grayscale display. Localized language support, including right-to-left on-screen text, meets the needs of global users.

     The phone supports a built-in Gigabit Ethernet switch for your PC connection.

     Support for Cisco EnergyWise technology makes the Cisco IP Phone 8811 more energy-efficient and ecofriendly; the phone is qualified by the Energy Star organization.

     An optional wall-mount kit is orderable separately for customers seeking this capability.

Features and benefits

Table 1 lists features and benefits of the Cisco IP Phone 8811.

Table 1.           Features and benefits of Cisco IP Phone 8811



Hardware Features

Ergonomic design

  The phone offers an easy-to-use interface and provides a traditional telephony-like user experience.

Graphical display

  The 5-in., 800 × 480 resolution, grayscale display provides scrollable access to calling features and text-based XML applications.


  The handset is a standard wideband-capable audio handset (connects through an RJ-9 port).
  The standard coiled cord has a custom end for concealed cable routing beneath the phone (cord length is approximately 21 in. [55 cm] coiled and up to 72 in. (183 cm) extended).
  The handset is hearing aid-compatible (HAC) and meets Federal Communications Commission (FCC) loudness requirements for the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). You can achieve Section 508 loudness requirements using industry-standard inline handset amplifiers such as Walker Equipment W-10 or CE-100 amplifiers. The dial pad is also ADA-compliant.

Speaker phone

  The full-duplex speakerphone gives you flexibility in placing and receiving calls with hands free. For added security, the audible Dual Tone Multifrequency (DTMF) tones are masked when the speakerphone mode is used.

Analog headset

  The analog headset jack is a standard wideband-capable RJ-9 audio port.

AUX port

  You can use an auxiliary port to support electronic hookswitch control with a third-party headset connected to it.

Ethernet switch

  An internal 2-port Cisco Ethernet switch allows for a direct connection to a 10/100/1000BASE-T Ethernet network (IEEE 802.3i/802.3u/802.3ab) through an RJ-45 interface with single LAN connectivity for both the phone and a co-located PC.
  The system administrator can designate separate VLANs (IEEE 802.1Q) for the PC and phone, providing improved security and reliability of voice and data traffic.


  The phone has the following keys:
   Line keys
   Soft keys
   Back and release keys
   Four-way navigation and select keys
   Hold/Resume, Transfer, and Conference keys
   Messaging, Application, and Directory keys

Backlit Indicator

  The phone supports backlit indicators for the audio path keys (handset, headset, and speakerphone), select key, line keys, and message waiting.

Replaceable bezel

  The phone includes a black bezel; an optional silver bezel is also available separately.

Dual-position foot stand

  The display is easy-to-view and the buttons and keys are easy-to-use. The two-position foot stand supports viewing angles of 35 and 50 degrees; you can remove the foot stand for wall mounting, with mounting holes located on the base of the phone.


  You can install the phone on a wall using an optional wall-mount kit (available separately).

Physical security

  The phone is compatible with the Kensington Security Slot (K-Slot) antitheft system.
