Voice Over IP for the Cisco 3600 Series Configuration Examples

The actual Voice over IP configuration procedure you complete depends on the actual topology of your voice network. The following configuration examples should give you a starting point. Of course, these configuration examples would need to be customized to reflect your network topology.

Configuration procedures are supplied for the following scenarios:

  • FXS-to-FXS Connection Using RSVP

  • Linking PBX Users with E&M Trunk Lines

  • PSTN Gateway Access Using FXO Connection

  • PSTN Gateway Access Using FXO Connection (PLAR Mode)

These examples are described in the following sections.

FXS-to-FXS Connection Using RSVP

The following example shows how to configure Voice over IP for simple FXS-to-FXS connections.

In this example, a very small company, consisting of two offices, has decided to integrate Voice over IP into its existing IP network. One basic telephony device is connected to Router RLB-1; therefore Router RLB-1 has been configured for one POTS peer and one VoIP peer. Router RLB-w and Router R12-e establish the WAN connection between the two offices. Because one POTS telephony device is connected to Router RLB-2, it has also been configured for only one POTS peer and one VoIP peer.

In this example, only the calling end (Router RLB-1) is request RSVP. Figure 3 illustrates the topology of this FXS-to-FXS connection example.

Linking PBX Users with E&M Trunk Lines

The following example shows how to configure Voice over IP to link PBX users with E&M trunk lines.

In this example, a company wants to connect two offices: one in San Jose, California and the other in Salt Lake City, Utah. Each office has an internal telephone network using PBX, connected to the voice network by an E&M interface. Both the Salt Lake City and the San Jose offices are using E&M Port Type II, with four-wire operation and ImmediateStart signaling. Each E&M interface connects to the router using two voice interface connections. Users in San Jose dial "8-569" and then the extension number to reach a destination in Salt Lake City. Users in Salt Lake City dial "4-527" and then the extension number to reach a destination in San Jose.

Figure 4 illustrates the topology of this connection example.

Note This example assumes that the company already has established a working IP connection between its two remote offices.

Note PBXs should be configured to pass all DTMF signals to the router. We recommend that you do not configure store and forward tone.

Note If you change the gain or the telephony port, make sure that the telephony port still accepts DTMF signals.

PSTN Gateway Access Using FXO Connection

The following example shows how to configure Voice over IP to link users with the PSTN gateway using an FXO connection.

In this example, users connected to Router SJ in San Jose, California can reach PSTN users in Salt Lake City, Utah via Router SLC. Router SLC in Salt Lake City is connected directly to the PSTN through an FXO interface.

Figure 5 illustrates the topology of this connection example.

Note This example assumes that the company already has established a working IP connection between its two remote offices.

PSTN Gateway Access Using FXO Connection (PLAR Mode)

The following example shows how to configure Voice over IP to link users with the PSTN Gateway using an FXO connection (PLAR mode).

In this example, PSTN users in Salt Lake City, Utah, can dial a local number and establish a private line connection in a remote location. As in the previous example, Router SLC in Salt Lake City is connected directly to the PSTN through an FXO interface.

Figure 6 illustrates the topology of this connection example.
