I am trying to setup a small lab at work for cisco networking and I am trying to accomode VoIP into it. I am making a list which includes other routing and switching devices. So far on my list for voip, I have 2 FXS VICs, 1 FXO VIC, three 7946 phones and an ATA180.
I also have two 2801 routers on the list. What do they need to support the VICs?
Also, I dont know the cost of call manager or unity, but I dont think we will get the apporval to dump $5k on them. How much do these things really cost. Are there any cheaper options ? How about CME. What does it cost and what would we be giving up by using CME?
Is there anything else you guys would recomend for Voip ?
