My IP Phones are Finally Alive!

I finally configured basic DN's for my IP Phones on both my HQ and my Branch router. I also configured a simple VoIP dial-peer so that I can place calls between the two sites. I can even dial my analog phone at the HQ site from all of IP Phone too without any issues. I'll be wrapping up Chapter 3 in the CVoice book by this weekend and then it's on to the Dial Plan chapters. I'll be configuring my PSTN router to emulate the PSTN finally as well. I'm estimating that I'm about 50 hours deep into my studies so far. Probably another 70 hours or so in and I'll probably be at the point were I'm prepping to sit for my first ever Cisco Professional level exam!


  1. Awesome! I can't wait to read the Cisco Voice book as well! I am scouring the web and books to try and learn this stuff myself. I work in a CUCM 8.5 environment and I am trying to learn as much as I possibly can about it.

    If you want someone to read/step through the book/labs and give you notes, I would be glad to do so.

  2. Yea finding the material was a challenge in itself, it sucked a lot. I finally gave in and just got a Safari subscription. I don't know if I'm going to create another lab book but I will probably throw up all the flash cards I made for download.
