    Default CCNA Voice help needed please

    So, I have been busting my hump for months now to get my CCNA so that when a field engineer position opened up at my job, I would be a fully qualified candidate. I got word today that when they start looking for the next engineer, they are also going to be looking for some sort of voice knowledge. I have not touched any voice so I'm looking for some sort of advice. Has anyone taken this test yet? Should I build a lab for this or is it something a SIM will work for? Anyone have any recommended reading? I'm starting from ground zero and I'm not sure the best route to take.

    I can't imagine you getting by (or at least, being prepared for the work place) without actual equipment. The Cisco Press book isn't out until November 10th, but you can read it online at http://safari.oreilly.com

    1760V's and VWICs are fairly reasonable on eBay.

    Go to CBT nuggets buy the Cvoice 6 and CIPT 4.1

    get a 1751 V with some FXO and FXS ports

    You will be a voice beast in less than 3 months. Jeremy Ciora is the best Cisco Instructers I have ever heard.

    8 months ago I was clueless when it came to voice, now I can set up callmanager with multiple servers (publisher and subscribers), Unity 4.2, FXO configuration, FXS config, T1 Cas, T1 CCS, MGCP, H323, difference between analog and digital ports. Dial-peers(voip and pots), SRST and CCME

    There's a decent tutorial for setting up a virtual voice lab here:

    And I have to second the CBT Nuggets suggestion. Jeremy definitely keeps the Cisco videos interesting and easy to learn. I haven't had a chance to look at the CiscoPress CCNA Voice book, but I'd guess that would be a great place to start.

    I found a WIC on Ebay(VWIC 2MFT-T1-DI Interface Module), I was going to buy a 2600 series router on ebay for my starter NP lab anyways, would this WIC work in this router? Is this the FXO and FXS ports you guys were talking about?

    2600 series routers do not support voice natively. You will have to buy carrier modules NM-V or NM-2V in order for you to use the FXO's, FXS, and the T1's

    WARNING voice labs can be very expensive. I will advice you to get a 1751V or 1760V and practice with that. They are less expensive
