Cisco switches with Avaya IP phones

Dear All,

We plan to implement Avaya IP phone in our network.right now we have all cisco c2950 switches for user connection. shortly we plan to have cisco POE switches for accomdating Avaya Ip phones.

Does cisco POE switches support Avaya Ip phones?we will be having both Data and Voice vlan configuration in switch port.

If its support can we configure better QOS for Voice traffic?

Thanks

Re: Cisco switches with Avaya IP phones

I work for a company that did this 2 years ago. It works very well now but we had some "burn in" work together with our datacom provider, to ensure that QoS really worked all the way from remote site to central office where the Avaya-ACD (PBX) resides.

We have 3560's to connect the workplace and we connect PC to the Avaya phone (Daisy chain). Works nicely all the way from remote sites some 500 km away.

We also b.t.w have home workers over Inet & VPN, these can't have QoS but it works mostly anyway. We even experiment'd with a small site over VPN. That also worked well (We DO have exellent quality Internet though) ...

So yes, Avaya equippment and Cisco stuff play along and QoS is needed when bandwith hits the roof. QoS is tricky though even for specialists - Its easy to limit by mistake (we did :o) ...

Hope this helps!

Re: Cisco switches with Avaya IP phones

Well, I don't have that much in printing ... What would be interesting?

I'll give it a try:

Typical port config for PC+Phone:

interface FastEthernet0/17

switchport access vlan 10

switchport mode access

switchport voice vlan 110

srr-queue bandwidth share 10 10 60 20

srr-queue bandwidth shape 10 0 0 0

mls qos trust dscp

no snmp trap link-status

auto qos voip trust

spanning-tree portfast

Though it works well -I'm not able to actually "defend" the choosen numbers for shape and share. I know we had problems a while ago, because we had values that unintentionally gave us a roof of 10 Mb on a trunk of 100Mb because we reused params from a 1 Gb trunk! This wasn't easy to remedy - so be mindful!

I sometimes suspect the use of both share and shape is somewhat fishy - but again - it works :o)

3560 general QoS ?

Again - I can't really say why, but heres the config:

!

A lot here is default from what I remeber, but may help to compare with if you get in trouble

Anything else? - I'll try to gather it for you!
