  • Cisco IP phones and procurve switches...

    We currently have all Cisco switches in our operation coupled with our Cisco VOIP infrastructure. Bossman is looking for a way to cut costs in the future by possibly switching to HP Procurve switches. Our HP rep sent us an HP 2610-PWR to play with to see how we liked it. Unfortunately there is no documentation with it and I know only Cisco configurations. We like to utilize the 1 port per PC/Phone feature on our Cisco switches. In the Cisco IOS its as simple as--

    switchport access vlan xxx (pc vlan)
    switchport voice vlan xxx (voice vlan)
    auto qos voip cisco-phone
    no shut

    And we're done and good to go. Is this even possible to do on the Procurves??? Any help or points in the right direction are appreciated!

    Yes, our Cisco phones are on Procurve switches. The phones utilize LLDP-MED to assing themselves to the auxilary LAN.

    The config looks like this:

    Code:
    vlan 10 
       name "Voice" 
       untagged D12 
       no ip address 
       qos priority 6 
       tagged A1-A24,C1-C24,D1-D11,D13-D24,E1-E24,F1-F24,H1-H24 
       voice 
       exit
    Here's a great doc on it: http://pro-h40060-hpwpux-pro.atlanta...nal-081208.pdf

      Nice. So are the untagged ports for the phones or the tagged port?

        All ports are tagged with VLAN 10 for voice traffic, everything else goes over VLAN 1.

          I suspect that it's possible, however given the current relationship status between the two companies, mixing their devices might cause your network to go nova and create a small black hole in the server room. Nothing says "fun" quite like supermassive singularities.

          Have you asked Cisco or a Cisco partner if Cisco support will speak with you when they find out that their phones are not on a Cisco network?

            We've got lots of customers using Cisco IP phones on a ProCurve infrastructure; including some of our own offices! I can't comment on the level of Cisco support in this configuration - but you should be able to find assistance on the forums.

            A second place to place to look is the HP ITRC networking forum
