diffrence in 1760 and 1760-V

What is the difference between a Cisco 1760 router and a Cisco 1760-V router?   Can a 1750 be turned into a 1750-V and if so what would you buy/install to do so?

"The two different versions of the Cisco 1760 Modular Access Router, the base version Cisco 1760 router and the Cisco 1760-V router, address the needs of customers who want to deploy transformation technologies such as converged voice and data, IP telephony, or videoconferencing."

A look at Table 2 shows the differences between the 1760 and 1760-V (Multiservice-ready version)

Basically, the "V" version, in addition to the memory comes with 1 DSP module and a different IOS version.

Hope this helps.

Here's a link to the Cisco brochure. 1700 series starting on page 67.


It looks like the "-V" version (Voice) has additional DRAM (from 64-96) other than that they look pretty similar. They probably come with a different version of IOS.

There's a list of avaliable images and products for this model.  Hopefully you can find what you're looking for.

grsteed is correct
The "V" model has the voice codec (DSP), the others do not.

the real answer is a 1760-V It has A dsp in one slot and there is two slots total inside it.   It has more memory both flash and dram.   And the base os for the -V model is a Voice IOS.  So a 1760 CAN  be made into a -V model by adding a dsp and putting more memory in it.
