Hi Experts,

My understanding is that the cisco switch will tell the cisco phone which vlan to tag the voice traffic via CDP (correct me if i got it wrong), so when deploying cisco IP phone using non-cisco switch, what is the typical approach to instruct the phone which vlan to tag the voice? Thanks for advise.

The typical approach would be to manually assign the vlan on the phone under settings.

You cannot assign the voice vlan via static settings.

You can only assign the administrative vlan that is not the same thing and to be honest with you I never got to understand what really is.
