How do I make a PSTN simulator to use in my voice lab?
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.
(watch the word wrap)
The dial plan for this PSTN config is in here:
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:
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.
