We have an HP 2920-48 port POE switch. We also have 2x HP 2920-48 port NON-POE switches. I was surprised to find today that our new VOIP phones are actually get power when plugged into the NON-POE switch?! Is this possible?? If so, are there possible issues I should consider when configured in this manner. I know we are having issues with the phones losing calls before they can be answered...wondering if related.
