Configuring SGE2000P to use Cisco IP Phones

Answered Question

Hello , I need to know if it's possible to configure the Cisco SGE2000P switch so I can use a Cisco 7945 IP Phone for Voice and Data.

The configuration is easy with other 3560 switches we got but, a colleague bought this switch to install it in a warehouse with 10 IP Phones and we cannot make it work with separate vlans (one for voice and one for data)


Any Ideas?


Thanks a lot.

Hi Jose,


Considering there is not CDP within the switch itself,  you will probably have to tell the phones which VLAN they belong to.


I assume as a pre-requisite that the switch has configured both tagged and untagged vlans assigned to all ports, even the uplink ports.


Now assuming that is setup correctly, goto the phones themselves ;

1. press the settings button

2. unlock them with the keyboard command **# 

3. set their Admin. VLAN Id to the tagged vlan number that is used for voice traffic.  You will have to find that option , most likely under the Network Configuration settings.


Save those changes. See if that makes a  difference.


regards Dave
