    Default CCNA Voice Lab - suggestions wanted

    Hi, this new CCNA Voice seems very interesting. Yes I'm putting the cart before the horse since I haven't completed my CCNA but I was wondering if anyone is running Call Manager and what it takes from a software and hardware perspective. I'd have to test it out on the cheap. I am currently able to download it from Cisco per our partnership agreement and was wondering what it would take to run it in a small lab.

    Thanks!

    Silly question but would anyone mind telling me which downloads I need specifically so I can get thsi up and running?

    There is the Cisco Unified App Env.

    The Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express (CCME) :
    Cisco Unified CallManager Express & SRST
    Unified Communications 500 Series (UC500)

    Cisco Unified CallConnectors

    Cisco Service Node Software

    Cisco Unity Express Software

    etc.

    Needed to say I'm confused as all hell lol.

    Thanks in advance!

    Your partner discount should bring down the price to a reasonable level for a Cisco Unified Communications 500 Series for Small Business.

    Your other option would be to cobble together this functionality using ISR or older lower cost voice routers
    Code:
    Components of the Cisco Unified Communications 500 Series include:
    
    • Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express for call processing 
    of Cisco Unified IP phones, providing a phone system rich in features
    
    • Cisco Unity® Express for voice messaging and Automated Attendant,
    to help improve communication among employees and with customers
    
    • An integrated 8-port Power over Ethernet (PoE) local-area network 
    (LAN) switch
    
    • Network security functions including Cisco IOS Firewall, which protects 
    the wide-area network (WAN) entry point into your network, and virtual 
    private network (VPN), which gives up to 10 remote users highly secure 
    access to your network
    
    • Optional integrated wireless LAN (WLAN) capability on some models or 
    external access points and Cisco Wireless LAN Controller Modules, to 
    enable mobile networking, which can help increase employee flexibility 
    and productivity
    
    • Cisco Configuration Assistant so you can easily configure devices and 
    technologies including unified communications (phones and software), 
    switching, routing, security, and wireless
    
    • Optional remote system-monitoring capabilities
    And you still need a few other items either way....

    Code:
    CIsco Unified Communications 500 Series also supports (sold seperately):
    
    • Cisco Unified IP phones, including wireless handsets and Session Initiation 
    Protocol (SIP) phones
    
    • Cisco Unified CallConnectors for integration with Windows PC applications 
    including Microsoft Outlook, Internet Explorer, Microsoft Dynamics CRM, or 
    Salesforce.com CRM
    
    • An ability to expand switching capabilities through a connection to Cisco 
    Catalyst® Express 520 Series Switches, which provide an additional 8 to 
    24 ports
