one of our customers plans to connect alcatel ip phones "ip touch 4038" (with pcs connected to the phones) to cisco Cat4500 switches. Also normal pcs should be connected directly to the 4500.
So I think the phones would be connected with vlan trunk and the pcs with normal access port configuration.
To insure an easy switch administration we are looking for one (!) common switchport configuration which allows the connection of phones and also pcs. As far as I know with cisco phones we could use dtp so that the switchports dynamically uses trunk or access configuration depending on the connected device (phone or pc).
Does anybody know how we can fulfill this requirement with alcatel phones?
If there exist best practise documentation concerning ip phones (trunks, voice vlan etc.) it would also be fine if somebody could tell me the url.
Many thanks in advance,
