    I see that you have the book "Cisco Unity Deployment and Solutions Guide." It's not technically part of the CCVP track, but it seems like it would be helpful in understanding Unity. What did you think of the book? Do you think it's essential in the VP track?

    It's definitely a good book but a bit overkill for the CCVP for sure. CIPT1 will test you on the basics of integration, and TUC on troubleshooting integration, but neither go much deeper then the initial setup (so far at least) and @ the CCIE:Voice level, you're going to want to focus on Unity Connection. There are a few PDFs on the Cisco site with step by step details for initial integration with CUCM - those will be helpful from a CCVP perspective for sure.

    I picked up the book used (<$20) because I needed an indepth resource for comparing the pros and cons of a voice mail deployment w/m$ Exchange data store. Long story short, it's still an ongoing project but we're past the voicemial piece and Unity Connection is where it's at

    Now if you have the opportunity to work with Unity - I think that this book would be a must have reference.

    I decided to tweak the lab a little bit so here are the latest (and hopefully final!) updates:

    Replaced the 2 3550 PoEs with 3560 PoEs, replaced BR2’s phones w/7941s, and switched to a single router (2821) PSTN solution. The IAD was nice but I didn’t really need that many analog connections for the IE voice workbooks (still have 8 simulated POTS lines w/the EVM-HD in the 2821).





    (Figured that I’s take pics now while it’s still neat as I just re-cabled everything this w/e)

    It's a 3640 - I'm using it as my Frame-Relay cloud (NM-4Ts on the left) and access server (NM-32A lower right w/the 2 octal cables).

    That looks pretty sick with the 2811s and that 3750. Is that an 877w? Work just bought a couple 881's and they're damn nice for SOHO equipment.

    Where did you get your 3750 and 2811 from? If it's ebay then I dunno how you can afford that, or I guess I dunno how to play the game.

    Default Comparing VWIC's

    Thanks for taking the time to post your lab specs guys. I really appreciate the help in figuring out what I need to build my own lab. The dilemma I have right now is whether to buy used vwic-2mft-t1 or vwic2-2mft-t1. Can the vwic-2mft-t1 and vwic-2mft-e1 cards perform all the channelized PRI stuff necessary for CCIE voice labs?

    Those dang vwic2's are so much more expensive than the vwic's. Also, I am not concerned with buying knock off versions of the cards as long as they work. We need to save as much money as we can... Can anyone recommend a source of them?

    TIA.

    Welcome aboard!

    The general consensus is that the VWIC2s are unnecessary for a CCVP/CCIE:Voice lab. Old post here with comparison:

    http://www.techexams.net/forums/ccvp...c-1mft-t1.html

    As for where to find them cheap, I went the ebay route for almost all of my gear.

    Ebay is the source Neo. less than 100 bucks on used equipment for the vwics. most sellers with high feedback will refund or you replace the card. i had 2 parts doa and got them returned or exchanged. well worth the cost savings.

    also, agreed with Pit.. no need for vwic2/// vwics will do the job just fine.

    Default Back to back

    Thanks again. Can the VWIC-1MFT-T1 cards be connected back-to-back or do they require a CSU?

    If they can be connected back-to-back, what cable would you use please?

    They can be connected back to back. You just need a T-1 Crossover cable:

    You can also try this little tool that will do the "crossover" for you, for $30 that is. Pretty cool looking tool, but more so for a network testing kit, I'm probably going to pick one up. HTH

    That thing looks sweet as hell. I think that (if it works well) I want one. I wonder if there are any throughput issues or anything like that.
