We have Centralized network with 4 different location, each location is conected via MPLS cloud..on each site we are using 2600 /2800 routers and 3750 stacked switches.. switches with default vlans are working fine..we also have 20 to 30 IP phone users in same default VLAN...
Now I decide to create a spreat VLAN for voice ..so wot I need to do is access switch..Vlan database
Vlan 2 name IP phones
#int vlan 2
#ip address 10.1.1.1 255.255.255.0
#switchport mode access
#switch port access vlan 2
#ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 10.9.1.1 (GW)
I test this config on simulator which is working fine..but question is do I need to config QoS..Management also want QoS over the MPLS links...
So I am totally confused now..I never touch QoS before..don't know wot to do..
Some 1 help me please ...at least advise on voice VLANs would be highly appreciated....
As for your current design, I recommend configuring your switchport with voice and data as you will connect the IP-Phone to the switchport but this IP-Phone will have a connection to a data device in the back-end. The IP-Phone will serve as a bridge for this data connection.
I am confused here.hope you will remove this confusion..
As I mention erlier we have 4 branches in datacenter we are using 10.1.1.x series via default vlan all L3 switches have i.e. 10.1.1.5 10.1.1.10 etc.. switches are on default vlan say 1 of the switch have 10.1.1.5 IP default-gateway is 10.1.1.1 whichh is the IP for Router where MPLS is terminatin from ISP is in the same switch we are using IP route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 10.1.1.1.
now in other branch same scenario say london branch 10.6.1.1 is router f0/0 and it is connecting with the L3 swicth using 10.6.1.10 on default vlan on the same switch ISDN is terminating phonees are also connected. I decide to create VLAN on all the branches for phones say branch 1 where we are using 10.5.1.x create Vlan 2 name phone use 10.55.1.x range in london create vlan 2 name phone use 10.66.1x in my lab sim I produce the network evry thing is OK excep new vlans..they cannot ping each others i.e. in london when I am creating 10.66.1.1 and user is having 10.66.1.5 ip user is not able to ping gateway which is 10.66.1.1 but from the switch I am able to ping 10.66.1.5 same case with every branch..we are not using management vlans and I don't want to go there to make it more complicated..i think its intervlan routing issue..or technically we cannot ping default vlans..
Will you please advise here what should I do..where i am missing and what points..
A typical switch configuration to support ip-phones would be:
interface vlan 2
ip address 10.1.66.1 255.255.255.0
interface vlan 3
ip address 10.1.6.1 255.255.255.0
switchport mode access
switchport access vlan 3
switchport voice vlan 2
With this design, 10.1.6.x should be able to ping 10.1.66.x. To be on the voice vlan, you must configure the DHCP server with the 'ip-phone dhcp option', you must consult your ip-phone configuration on that.
As for the router being able to ping back to those subnets, you must either have a static route from the router back to those subnets or configure dynamic routing protocol between the switch and the router.
If this does not make sense, I highly recommend getting a consultant to be onsite for this deployment.
I have seen the big mistake in most cases be something easy like a device that does not have routing turned on. I knwo it is silly but I was called into a situation where they were adding vlans to a location that only had 1 default vlan and they never added that critical command IP Routing on the device. Most people will not admit it when they do things like these but it happens!!!!!!!
Totally agree with you, this was the command I stuck googling and reading my CCNA books ...why vlan is not reaching to default vlan..last week I was discussing with my friend and he pointed out this mistake IP routing..I can now reach to my switch from end users with in the vlans to switch but can not ping to the gateway ..I am sure its because my simulator is not recognizing ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0. x.x.x.x(gateway)?? Once I confirm this I'll deploy this in prod enviornment...
