Catalyst 4224

Anyone have experience using the 4224 at a remote office location with CallManager 3.1? Any issues, bugs or unpleasant experiences?

Re: Catalyst 4224

Although I have not used it as a customer, two things I would caution you about - make sure you use the latest IOS software available, and also note that there are only 6 DSPs in the chassis, which is enough for 24 total voice channels. So that includes any PRI and analog cards that you use, plus the 8 port FXS that comes in the box. So make sure you plan voice channel capacity appropriately.

Unless you need the FXS port density, I would reccomend a 2600 and a 3524 over the 4224. We have some issues with the two we deployed in August, but TAC promises new IOS releases in December will fix our issues.

Re: Catalyst 4224

We have problem with a 4224 running 12.1(5)YE2 - if you connect a fax to an fxs port the port no longer works properly - outgoing calls you just get dropped backed to dial tone every time you press a digit, incoming calls is setup ok but you get one way audio which is badly distorted. Need to reload the 4224 to clear the problem. (Anyone else seen this problem)

Re: Catalyst 4224

Are you using MGCP or H.323? It seems like while using MGCP I ran into this problem, but I am working fine with H.323 and dial-peers on the 4224 with version YE2.

Re: Catalyst 4224

We have three deployed. Two work just fine, however one had an issue with the PRI coming in from telco. Everytime a call would come in, the 4224 would reset. I'm running on a development version of the IOS and it is working better now, but we are still hammering out a few bugs. Like I said, out of three, two worked as advertised without any problems.

FYI, although I have not used a very wide deployment scenario (since I have no actual customer installations), we have done some work with the 4224 and found YE3 code to be much better than previous versions.
