In order for the phone to receive the voice vlan info from the switch, it would need to support CDP (Cisco proprietary). I don't think Toshiba phones would support CDP. That being said, it may be possible to configure the vlan info directly on the phones and use them with Cisco switches.
Check with your phone vendor to see how they recomment setting up the switch port. Third party phones typically use an 802.1Q port setup with DHCP. The phone first comes up on the native VLAN (the data VLAN in this case) and requests an IP confuguration from DHCP. The DHCP scope would include the voice VLAN information that the phone needs to operate.
The majority of our locations use a central controller that hooks to digital phones throughout the branches. The central controller uses VoIP to connect to the other locations in the phone network. Would this work the same for them?
This is correct. The phones connect back to the PBX. The PBX connects to the other PBX's that we have on our WAN. I am trying to seperate my voice traffic from my data traffic. The PBX box is on the same network as the PC's and printers. I have been doing research on the voice VLAN to see if using it would work with my Toshiba phone systems. So I guess my question is, "Can I put my Toshiba phone system traffic into the voice VLAN and it work?"
Only the PBX used VoIP to communicate with other PBXs? Are any of the phones VoIP? I'm going to assume not for this response.
Yes you can place the VoIP interface of the PBX into a voice VLAN. You need to create a voice VLAN at each site. Then you need to establish VLAN to VLAN routing accross the WAN so that the PBXs can talk to each other via IP. You will need either a layer three switch for the routing or use a router with a dot1q Ethernet interface configuration.
PBX VLAN-----\ /-----PBX VLAN
DATA VLAN----/ \----DATA VLAN
Does this make sense?
ps - the Ascii diagram looked much better before posting. Copy it to notepad to view.
The VLAN name and number can be different at each site but I usually try to keep them the same for sanity sake. The VLAN won't actually cross the WAN unless you enable bridging which you really do NOT want to do. You would use routing instead.
Also keep in mind that the voice and data traffic will mix while on the WAN link. It is important that you have a QoS policy to prioritize the voice traffic.

The short answer is that you don't.... That isn't entirely true while at
the same time it kind of is, but for the most part you don't configure
the softkeys. You enable or disable them via TCL. Here is the long
