BVI Interface on voice gateway

I have a 2801 with a PRI and 2 Fast Ethernet interfaces. We want to dual-home the gateway to separate core switches, with one Fast Ethernet interface to each switch.

My question is what is the best way to do this? I was thinking of putting both interfaces into a BVI interface, but is that ok to use for voice? Or would it be better to use a /30 on each interface, and then use the loopback IP as the routed IP?

The BVI works fine with voice. And the routed approach also. If you have a voice vlan to be connected directly to the router, the first solution is probably easier.

Hope this helps, please rate post if it does!

The gateway is only for the Voice VLAN, so we'll likely be using the BVI interface. Thanks for the input!
