Chapter 2: 4600 Series IP Telephone Installation


The 4600 Series IP Telephone product line uses Internet Protocol (IP) technology with Ethernet interfaces. The IP telephones supplement the existing DEFINITY® /MultiVantage™ IP Solutions platform.

The 4600 Series IP Telephones support DHCP and TFTP over IPv4/UDP which enhance the administration and servicing of the phones. These phones use DHCP to obtain dynamic IP addresses and TFTP or HTTP to download new software versions for the phones.

Most 4600 Series IP Telephones provide the ability to have one IP connection on the desktop for both a telephone set and a PC. The 4606, 4612, 4624, and 4630 IP Telephones provide a repeater. The 4602SW, 4610SW, 4620, 4620SW, 4621SW, 4622SW, 4625SW and 4630SW IP Telephones, and the 30A switched hub, provide an Ethernet switch. The 4601 and 4602 IP Telephones, and the 4690 IP Conference Telephone, have neither a repeater nor a switch, and cannot share a port with a PC.

For information on Voice over IP, see the 4600 Series IP Telephone LAN Administrator Guide.

In compliance with Australian law, the following information is provided:

This equipment shall be installed and maintained by trained service personnel. All the input/ output ports are classified as Safety Extra Low Voltage (SELV, in the meaning of IEC 60950). To maintain safety compliance when connecting the equipment electrically to other equipment, the interconnecting circuits shall be selected to provide continued conformance of clause 2.3 for SELV circuits (generally, double/reinforced insulation to 240Vac rms to any primary/mains circuitry and 120Vac rms to any telecommunications network circuitry). To ensure that these conditions are adhered to, interconnect the equipment only with the already approved/certified equipment.

Conference Telephone

Telephone models containing the SW designation have the same appearance, user interface, and functionality as their non-SWcounterparts, with one exception. The phones have an internal Ethernet switch that allows the telephone and a PC to share the same LAN connection, if appropriate. Thus, SW models do not need, or work with, the 30A switched hub interface. The exception to this exception is the4620—boththe 4620 and 4620SW contain an Ethernet switch.

Additionally, the 4630SW IP Telephone differs from the 4630 IP Telephone in two distinct ways. The 4630SW can be LAN-poweredand is FCC and CISPR Class B. The 4630 is a Class A device that does not support LAN powering.

This document describes the installation of these phones. For details about using the features provided by the phones, see the user documentation for each phone. For information about desk or wall mounting any of the 4600 IP Telephone Series, see the instructions boxed with the phone. Wall or desk mount instructions are also available on the Avaya support Web site.


As shipped from the factory, the 4600 Series IP Telephones may not contain sufficient software for registration and operation. When the phone is first plugged in, a software download from a TFTP server is initiated. The software download gives the phone the functionality of an Avaya IP Telephone.

For downloads of software upgrades, the Avaya Media Server provides the capability for a remote restart of the IP telephone. As a consequence of restarting, the phone automatically restarts reboot procedures which result in a download if new software is available.
