This week I’ve started setting up a VOIP lab to explore the technology and when I’m done, I plan to integrate it into my home network. So far I’ve purchased the following for my lab…
- c1760-V 192D/48F PVDM-12 VIC-2FXO VIC-2FXS running c1700-ipvoicek9-mz.124-15.T7 and CME 4.1
- c1760 64D/32F with VIC-2FXS running c1700-ipvoicek9-mz.124-15.T7
- Cisco 7960G VOIP Phone
- 2x Analog Phones
I’ve also purchased a NM-32A to replace the Cisco Pro 2511 that I was using in my lab as an access server. My ONT studies have continued over the past couple days, and I hope to take the test in the next week or two. I’ve discovered that QOS on Cisco is so simple when compared to Linux tc. But I digress..
My goal for setting up my equipment is to terminate two lines onto the router, one for the house, and one for my office. I’d like to use the 7960 as my office phone, and be able to answer either line from it. I imagine this will be pretty simple once I get everything here.. Any suggestions?
