Understanding Headset Terminology

Quick Disconnect: Out of the box this is the name of the cord that's on your Cisco compatible headset that connects to the direct connect cable. Direct Connect Cable: This cable connects from your Cisco headset to the headset port of your Cisco phone. Electronic Hook Switch: Otherwise known as an EHS cable, this accessory connects from a wireless headset charging base to your Cisco phone. Allowing you to answer/end calls when away from your phone.
