Static on phone calls

I am in the early stages of troubleshooting users reporting static on the phones when they are on a call. Based on others with the same issues what would be the best place to look for an issue that may cause this. In other words when this happens what is the main reason or reasons for static?

Re: Static on phone calls

Analog lines, or T1 lines ?

Re: Static on phone calls

The users are connected to a Catalyst 4506-E switch which then goes into a 2821 router and comes back to a central location via T-1 MPLS. This is the way most all our offices are setup, we are Hub and Spoke. Not all users are having this issue. They are all Cisco IP Phones (7965).

Re: Static on phone calls

Somewhere, there is one or more telephone lines going to telco, you need to find out that.

Re: Static on phone calls

Sorry me being dense..... T-1 not analog

It has been one of those days.

conf t

network-clock-participate wic 2

network-clock-select 1 t1 0/2/0

Let us know if that fixes the issue, else more questions coming.

Re: Static on phone calls

network-clock-participate wic 2

is already configured...the other is not...

Re: Static on phone calls

Configure for both and the all important -select command.

Re: Static on phone calls

Thank you...

Since I will be asked and I don't configure that everyday. How did you arrive at that and can it have any adverse affects?

Re: Static on phone calls

No adverse effects, we're not here to make you suffer. That will eliminate the slip errors that you can see in show controllers. Who initially configured in the router was not a professional.

Re: Static on phone calls

Thankfully I did not configure...Still learning the VoIP configs...

I will put this in place I just need to run it by the powers in place.. :-)

Thanks for your help.

Mike
