CM or CME ?


I'm new with Cisco.

We are completly rebuilding our sites and we look to use VOIP.

We have 3 sites :

- 1 in Belgium : approx 50 users

- 2 in Frans : 5 users. (and all call from Belgium to anywhere in Frans transit via one of them)

Between these sites, a mpls (with Qos and all we need)

I contact 2 cisco partners and receive 2 very different possible configuration

- First Config : 3 router with CME (1* 2851 + 2* 2811)

- Second config : CM on main site and SRST on the 2 others sites.

Is it possible to have other point of view on this forum ? What is the "best" solution ?

I think that CME is enough for us, we have 50 users, and think to grown in future to max 70 users. and CM same to be more difficult to manage.

Re: CM or CME ?

Im agree CME will be enough the CM cluster solution for you will be too expensive and you wont have any difference , I have a couple of scenarios like you have and if you want to discuss my scenario maybe we can setup a conference call someday.
