Hello. I have a question about using Netgear switches at a remote location.
The system will be a UC560 at the main office.
An SA520-K9 at the remote office and 5 SPA504G phones.
The remote office has Netgear switches (not sure of Model numbers) already.
Will these switches work to pass the voice traffic along with the data to the phones and PC's?
Thank you, Paul Santabarbara
No easy to answer without knowing whether the switch is CDP transparent and can apply QoS properly. This is not a supported configuration as we cannot ensure the right QoS is set to the voice. Strongly suggest to go for the ESW switch to ensure QoS.
The switches aren't supported, but might work. Cisco switches run CDP which allows the phone to learn about the voice and data vlans. What device are you going to use on the remote site to setup an IPSEC tunnel with?
