CME hardware questions

Unanswered Question
Jul 1st, 2009

Hi there,

I'm thinking about doing a CME install using one of the Bundled packages Cisco offers. The package I was looking at is the C2851-35UC-VSEC/K9, which is the 2851 router with CME, CUE, a PVDM2-48, and 35 user licenses. I have an existing PRI, so I would need the VWIC2-1MFT-T1/E1 card.

Can anybody help me with the licensing I would need to get up to 60 users on this system? Also, if I wanted to use an existing analog phone line to test the system before switching to the PRI, what voice interface card would I need -- FXS, FXO, or something else?

Thanks advance,


I have this problem too.

Analog lines to PSTN requires FXO interfaces.

Do not use that for any serious business use, too much troubles and lack of features.

Thanks for the reply. So just to verify, I could use an FXO interface hooked up to the PSTN and call into my system to test it before I actually move it over to the PRI, correct?
