Voice enabled router and CME

Answered Question
Aug 25th, 2010

Hi all experts. This may sound a bit dumb question but i always had this confusion.

Is there a difference between voice enabled router and CME router ? i mean is it possible that a router doesnt have CME in its IOS but still is called a voice enabled IOS ? what functionality of voice can it support without CME ?

I have this problem too.

John,

To add onto what Rob stated, CME is just a subset of the voice features within IOS. The IOS version must be one that includes the voice feature set to run CME but CME does not need to be enabled to run other voice features.  Below is a link to most of the features. It's not a comprehensive list but it's pretty close.

Cisco IOS Voice Configuration Library

For a full list, use the IOS feature navigator,

Hi John,

Not a dumb question at all my friend

One example of a Voice Enabled Router that does not run CME

is a Router with IOS Voice Digital (T1/E1) Interfaces.
