How Build CCNA Voice Home Laboratory?

How Build CCNA Voice Home Laboratory?

Hello CCNA Voice Enthusiast,

     I am planning to build a CCNA Voice Home Laboratory, with
these router, and already have 2 pieces 4941G IP Phones,
however I read some articles it says to add the following.

1. VIC2-2FXO
2. VIC2-2FXS
3. AIM-CUE - is this necessary?
4. PVDM2-8 - is this necessary?
5. Does need more DRAM?

Any hardware that you may add for references and planning.
This CCNA voice lab is also for future use in CCNP Voice.


Note: My 2801 IOS is IPBASE is not voice bundled,so what I am doing is trying to convert it for IOS Voice Features.

Router info:

Cisco 2801 (revision 6.0) with 117760K/13312K bytes of memory.
Processor board ID FCZ104213DH
2 FastEthernet interfaces
1 Virtual Private Network (VPN) Module
DRAM configuration is 64 bits wide with parity disabled.
191K bytes of NVRAM.
62720K bytes of ATA CompactFlash (Read/Write)
Configuration register is 0x2102

RE: How Build CCNA Voice Home Laboratory?

Think it will depend on the path you take for CCNA Voice.  I took the CVoice exam, and was able to get through without the AIM-CUE, and the PVDM2.  I used some 2611XM routers running CME, and a couple of mc3810 routers that had built in FXS ports.

RE: How Build CCNA Voice Home Laboratory?

Be careful buying an AIM-CUE, I bought one and the software on it was for CUCM not CME so It is effectively useless to me for CCNA Voice. I only keep it because I intend to do the CCNP-Voice soon!
