VoIP Requirement

Hello,

I am trying to setup a VoIP lab and would like to know the specifics of what I need to do that. Also what are the specific requirement for a small startup VoIP carrier/provider. All articles I have read are too general/vague and do not specify any equipment model.

Thanx.

I would greatly appreciate a checklist.

Re: VoIP Requirement

You can look into Ebay for cheap hardware for your lab, basically you can get everything on it. But read carefully items descriptions.

You also need to consider for your lab some IP phones, with SIP support. Ethernet switch, i.e. Catalyst 2900 series.
