2851 Router

I have a 2851 router getting ready to be installed for VoIP(using the 2 48 port PoE switches), what I'd like to do is incorporate my Firewall, IDS and maybe Voice Recording in the same device...any suggestions or recommendations on this idea?


Re: 2851 Router

Are you going to be using callmanager express (CME) on the router? If so how many phones are you going to connect to those 2 switches? You seem to be setup to use the max 96 phones.

I believe you'll be able to do basic FW and IDS on the router. From what I gathered following a couple of threads on the voip forums, voice recording is not as easy as you might think.

Re: 2851 Router

Yes, CME running on the router with a max of about 50 phones over the 2 switches. Correct again, I've found some information about the recording and it does seem to be getting a little more complex than I thought.

THanks for the help.
