Does a new 8832 Conference phone supposed to come with a LAN or power injector. We are POE,however doesn't it need some sort of Ethernet injector or brick? The phone I received had nothing in the box with it. Is the injector/brick ordered separate?.....Thanks,
● Power over Ethernet (PoE): A Cisco IP Conference Phone 8832 Ethernet Injector is required. Please order CP-8832-K9, CP-8832-W-K9, CP-8832-EU-K9, CP-8832-EU-W-K9 or CP-8832-NR-K9, which includes the Ethernet injector inside the base package.
Ensure that you have the latest firmware version installed on your Cisco Unified Communications Manager. Check for updated device packages here:
|Step 1||Choose the power source for the phone:
For more information, see Ways to Provide Power to Your Conference Phone.
|Step 2||Connect the phone to the switch.
Hope this helps!

I don't think that answers the question.
I think what you are saying is the "spare part" model doesn't include a power source of any kind, for example:
CP-8832-EU-W-K9 is bundled with an Ethernet injector or an 18W power adapter (to be determined at order time)
CP-8832-EU-W-K9= has just the unit itself
The problem is that the datasheet doesn't really make it clear what the different adapters do or what regions they are necessary for. I assume that most folks already have switches supplying 15w for 802.11af class 3, so presumably no wall power socket is necessary. Some photographs on the datasheet would help.
I'm in a position to buy all the options and hopefully find out, but it's a bit wasteful.
Yes, I also noticed that on CCW, ordering the non-spare part code forces you to buy a power source, but I'm still bewildered by what each component does. These are the part codes mentioned on the datasheet:
PWRCLIP-EU -> Snap-in wall power adapter for continental EU (not sure about Switzerland)
The user guide provides some diagrams on four possible ways to power these phones, but the terms "PoE Injector", "Ethernet Injector", "Non-PoE Ethernet Injector" and "Ethernet Injector with the Ethernet power option" don't really help.
Since the majority probably have switches supporting 802.3af/Class3 (15.4w), I believe no wall-power is necessary (unless daisy-chaining two units). Do you know what would be the correct part codes for this case?
P.S. My assumption is that the CP-8832-POE is for those who have 802.3af/Class3 capable switches and a regional combination of CP-8832-ETH-WW plus PWRCLIP-EU is for those without poe capable switches.
