Need help with CCIE Voice Lab Equipment

Hi guys,

My company plans to invest in CCIE voice equipments for employee so the budget is somewhat not a problem but I have no idea what are all required equipments for the lab after july 2006.

Here is what state on cisco web site, lab exam equipment and IOS version.

1 Cisco CallManager 4.1 (3) with latest SR

2 Cisco Unity 4.0 (5)

3 Cisco Unity Express 2.1 (2)

4 Cisco Customer Response Server /IP Contact Center Express 4.0 (1)

Please correct me if I'm wrong, in my understanding the above software can run on fast Xeon based server . they can be downloaded from cisco web site and they comes with demo license. But with new software version, Are they still be able to run on non-mcs box ? and What is the require license for each software to fulfill the lab requirement ?

5. Catalyst 6503

What line cards feature, ram , flash are required ?

6. 3725 Routers (WAN, Gatekeeper, Gateway, PSTN Emulation)

What line cards feature, ram , flash are required to make this router perform all those functions ?

7. 2651XM H.323 Gateway

What line cards feature, ram , flash are required to make this router perform this functions ? and how may routers ?

8. VG248 Analog Phone Gateway

Does it need to add more stuffs or just buy plain box ?

9. ATA186 Analog Telephone Adapters

Does it need to add more stuffs or just buy plain box ?

10. CAT3550 PWR

My company has this one.

11. IP Phones

What model and how many ?

12. Cisco Unity Express Network Module (NM-CUE).

At what router this line card should be put on,

3725 or 2651xm ?

Your valuable experience will definitely be totally uesful for other candidates. I wish you can donate your spare time to write "How to build actual CCIE Voice Lab"

I greatly appreciate your help.

Thank You

Re: Need help with CCIE Voice Lab Equipment

5. 6503 with a sup 2 should do.

use hybrid software on the sup

you will need a 6608 line card for t1 or e1 on this chassis.

also a 6148 or 6348 - 48 port inline power blade is preferred.

8. VG248 - You can get this box as such. You will need a amphenol connector and a patch panel to break out the RJ21 interface to rj11.

9. ata186-i1-a

11. 7960, 7940 should do.

12. you can use NM-CUE on either routers.

you may also need to get nm-16esw.

Check with IPExpert or Trinet for sample lab diagrams that they use in their lab workbooks.

Good luck.
