Yup. We have a 7960 plugged into each of our PSTN simulators. :)

Yes, that PSTN config uses CME.

I tried to post the config in here, but it wont let me due to size limitations. Here's a link to the PSTN config we use.

The dial plan for this PSTN config is in here:

Steve,

You could use a 3640, 3700 series, 2800 series router, etc. Any router which will take voice modules should work. If you use a 3640 or 3700 series router, you will need NM-HDVs with PVDMs on them. If you use a 2800 or 3800 series router, you'll need PVDM2s on the mother board.

I use a Cisco 2811 router with the following modules:

VWIC-2MFT-T1

VWIC-2MFT-E1

VIC2-2FXO

VIC2-2FXS

NM-4A/S

Don't forget about the PVDM2s so the router will recognize the voice modules. I have the NM-4A/S in there so that this PSTN simulator can also act as the frame-relay switch simulator. It's a great combo.

thanks,

Sweet! That's what I am looking for. Do you have a configuration for the PSTN simulator you are using?

It looks like you are using CME is that true?

I'll give it a try after I purchase a router.

SteveDexter Sun, 11/18/2007 - 19:50

That makes sense. It looks like I will need a 7960 phone as well. Is this correct?
