I believe CISCO part number 2811CCME/K9 is the only model of 2811 that includes CME pre-loaded and licensed. One of my peers is using a Cisco 2811-V in my lab and I need to load CME so I can begin to test a SIP trunking application. I have emailed my vendor asking for a quote, but once I get the P.O. to my vendor is it as easy as downlaoding an c2800-ipvoicek9 and cme-124-11XJ.zip, install it on the router, and get busy with configuring? Or do I need to wait for delivery of a license key that would actually activate CME on the box?
I appreciate the help.
There is no license enforcement. So technically you can load CME using the right IOS downloadable from CCO. You will also need to download the CME gui/phone load files.
To legally own and run a router with CME, you need to buy the FL-CCME-SMALL/MEDIUM etc which is the feature set license for CCME.
