VoIP Hardware

By gary5500 ·
Since I trust my "peers" more than salesmen, I have a question to all of you regarding VoIP hardware. Can I have full QoS optimization if my architecture is as follows: Phones to the Hub, Hub to the Qos Switch, QoS Switch to the IP PBX? Or shouldthe phones be connected to individual ports on QoS switches that are daisy chained together? If this question should be posted in another area, please let me know.

Thanks

No. Hubs have no place in a VoIP network.

QoS can be progammed to a port on a switch, depending on the manufacturer of the soft switch and the ethernet switch. Mix and match of switch vendors doesn't always work and will require extra work on your part.

Daisy chaining Switches will increase latency, every hop from switch to switch takes time. PBX to ethernet switch, every other ethernet switch should be homed to this switch as much as possible.

Don't skimp on cable installation or your equipment. Ask for a demo at an existing location.
