    Default 2811 Brand new router, what modules to buy?

    Hi, guys, new in Cisco world and in your forums!

    I am willing to buy a 2811 Router, brand new in the box.

    In order to study VoIP, what other modules do i have to buy?

    1x VIC2-2FXO 2-Port FXO
    1x PVDM2-16
    1x Cisco NM-HD-2VE Voice Fax

    Are the above correct?

    Do i need all these to start studying?

    If yes, what firmware i must run on 2811? How i can implement CallManager 4 into the router?

    I already own a 3750 PoE Switch.

    Sorry for all the n00b questions...

    Thanks

    Why not buy something of ebay? I would imagine it would be somewhat cheaper

    Make sure you get a FXO module for PSTN line in, FXS module for analogue phone testing.

    download an ip voice IOS c2800nm-ipvoicek9-mz.124-22.T.bin for example

    I would suggest run with ccm6 installed in a vmware environment.



    Hope this helps.

    You'd need more than one voice router for the CCVP. You'd also want some digital interfaces, and you can't really route any calls over them if you only have one.

    I had looked at getting one, and maybe two 2811s, but they wouldn't give me any more experience then what I got with my cheaper voice router home lab. The prices on the 2811 (unless you work for a Business Partner and get their discount) can be pricey -- and when you add the cost of the newer Voice Interface Cards, they can get outrageous.

    Check out some of the links in the CCVP FAQ

    Thanks for the replies guys...

    I bought a 2811 from eBay, one DSP 8 channel, one VIC2-2FXO and one ISDN BRI card.

    One final question, if i put these equipment in my office enviroment (not a lab) do i have to sign any kind of contract with Cisco so i can be legal? After finishing my study i will put them in a working enviroment with 4 IP Phones.
