The integration of voice and data networks is creating a fundamental change in the telecommunications and data industries. This change means better phone service, lower prices, new features, less maintenance, and more choices, leading to a complete convergence of the data networking and telecommunications industries into a single community. With all of this growth and change, network engineers and managers need specific information on how to integrate and configure packetized voice networks. Integrating Voice and Data Networks
is designed as your one-stop shop for learning how to integrate traditional voice technology into existing Cisco data networks.
Integrating Voice and Data Networks is both a conceptual reference and a practical how-to book that bridges the gap between existing telephony networks and the new world of packetized voice over data networks. Underlying technologies are explained in a non-product-specific manner that gives a holistic understanding of voice/data integration. You’ll then follow a complete process to design and implement a variety of network scenarios, leveraging author Scott Keagy’s extensive experience with real voice/data networks. Integrating Voice and Data Networks focuses on the implementation of Voice over Frame Relay (VoFR), Voice over ATM (VoATM), and Voice over IP (VoIP) using Cisco IOS voice gateways, including the Cisco MC3810, Cisco 2600/3600/7200/7500 series routers, and AS5300/AS5800 Access Servers.
