quick survey of VoIP cabling practices

Seems to me that many shops doing VoIP opt for a 2nd, separate cable and switches for their VoIP equipment. Is this really necessary? How many people do it this way?

It would seem to me that if one sets up propor QoS and VLANs then one cable/network should do, no?

Re: quick survey of VoIP cabling practices

Hi Deigo,

For what its worth no one I work with uses 2 cables and complete separation for their IPT infrastructure. One of the nicer selling points for this service is the elimination of a separate cabling system that was needed in traditional TDM PBX systems. This would be very expensive in large Enerprise rollouts.

There may be people doing this type of thing if they are looking for Gig speeds at the desktop and don't want to forklift in all new GE IP Phones.

Just my 2 cents :)
