Separate vlan for wireless voice

Hi all, I'm about to embark on reconfiguring my home lab, at present I have just 2 vlans which are for VoIP and data, I'm going to split my network so I have the following:

Data VLAN for our home PC's

Voice VLAN for phones

1 wireless VLAN for home laptops

1 wireless VLAN for games consoles

1 wireless guest access so I don't have to give out my own ssid credentials

1 Management VLAN

My question is do I have a separate VLAN for wireless VOIP or do I just use the same Voice VLAN?

Regards

Separate vlan for wireless voice

Martyn:
Both solutions are valid. You can use the current voice VLAN or create a new VLAN.

If you create a new VLAN you need to apply needed QoS to wired side as well.

If your current Voice VLAN is already configured for QoS then using it for wirelss voice is easier.

So the preffered option is to use your current voice VLAN for wireless voice as well.

Re: Separate vlan for wireless voice

You should use a separate VLAN for voice as well. Otherwise you may have issues talking to devices that are in the wire.

Separate vlan for wireless voice

Steve,

I think Martyn has already a separate VLAN for wired voice. He is just wondering if he can use same voice vlan that is running already on his wired infrastructure as a voice vlan for wireless or he needs to create new voice vlan for wireless that is separated than the wired voice vlan.

Re: Separate vlan for wireless voice

Yes. I'm just saying you want a separate VLAN for voice as well on the WLC. Otherwise you can get some weird issues as the WLC doesn't like to bridge traffic for a dynamic interface.

Hi Steve,  I have the same

Hi Steve, 

 

I have the same scenario where voice VLAN is the same for wired and wireless and I would like to better understand why is it better to create separate VLAN's for wired voice and wireless voice from a WLC point of view. Thank you.
