Hi all. In our company we are going to implement VoIP in our regional offices were all the networking equipment is Cisco. We were thinking of using Huawei 8 port PoE switches to which we would connect our Cisco phones and then connect the Huawei switch to the Cisco switch using a trunk.
I was wondering if anyone has experience connecting Cisco and Huawei switches? Are there known problems interconnecting these switches and what should I pay attention to on the Cisco side of things?
We mostly deal with Cisco equipment in our company so connecting/configuring Huawei switches is something new for us.
Thanks in advance for any help.
Thats a pretty rare switch , doubt you will find too many users . You would have to do your investigation on the Huawei support page on how to do trunking. Cisco normally uses pvst+ while most others use single spanning tree . There might be something on CCO on how to connect to other switches like that.
