I have not used Avaya IP Phones but I did come across a thread with an answer to these questions from Kleo. There is Switchport and QoS recommendations for Avaya phones using Cisco Switches (**it looks like Switchport mode access is the recommended config);
I am in the process of deployong an Avaya IP Office phone system. The config you have is designed to allow voice traffic on one VLAN and data traffic on the other. The Switchport access is the data VLAN and the switchport voice is the voice VLAN. This is based upon the documentation I have been reading. I will know today of that is not correct as the rest of the phone system hardware should be connected and configured today.
Thanks for the info .. everyone has been a help. The deployment from an IP standpoint has been relatively smooth. The issue has been with folks having hubs/switches in their offices. Is working fine attaching the hubs to the data port on the IP phones.
