How can I pair a CAT-iq 2.0 compatible phone with the XB8 gateway?

The description of the XB8 gateway claims it's CAT-iq 2.0 compatible, i.e., one should be able to pair a CAT-iq 2.0 phone without a base station directly (wirelessly) to the XB8. However, I can't find any way in the admin panels of the XB8 that would allow me to accomplish this. Has this feature even been activated on the XB8?
Thanks for any hints.

Hey there, you should be able to just plug it right in and not need to toggle on any setting. Have you tried setting it up already?

In a footnote, https://www.xfinity.com/support/articles/broadband-gateways-userguides says:

*CAT-iq 2.0: Cordless Advanced Technology (CAT). CAT-iq 2.0 is a digital communication standard, used primarily for cordless phone systems. CAT-iq 2.0 handsets can be paired with the wireless gateway.

But nowhere does it say how to do this.
