AVVID over Cable infrastructure possible?

Is it feasable to deploy AVVID over a cable infrastructure using ip phones through cable modems through a CMTS? What are the drawbacks? I know for one that inline power doesnt seem feasable. Thanks.

It should work but you’re not in control of the bandwidth being used over a public network so you may have some quality issues. Anyone else think of issues they might experience?

Re: AVVID over Cable infrastructure possible?

As Lisa said it should work but it will be a lot of administration.

How are you going to get the phones to find the server? statically configure every phone? if you do this then you need a router, not just a cable modem to handle nat'ing all the remote addresses.

Make sure you set the firewall up correctly to pass all the traffic.

I'd just stick to the good old local bell (I believe that's what you american types call the phone company) and tell whoever had the idea that it's just not possible.

If your provider is decent both at the source (work?) and your ISP - (even better if you can persuade your place of business to set up a peering agreemenet with such a local provider) then a local power block and a VPN should be all you need. Done all the time - with varying degreees of success of course - but with the right peering agreement - or simply really good connectivity between the two end points - a properly setup VPN should ride you home...
