Cisco PTP - External CSU/DSU moving Internal - QOS to follow

To Whom It May Concern:

I have a fully functioning point-to-point using old cisco routers with an external CSU/DSU (MCK units to be exact). I have purchased two new routers with internal CSU/DSU (CISCO1841-T1 to be exact). More ... I will require QOS in the near future.

Note: The current point-to-point is spliting the T1 into 12 channel voice and 12 channels data. The new configuration will be using 100% data.

Question 1: I was told that the IOS that comes with the router will not do QOS/traffic prioritization and that I would need to get a IP_VOICE IOS from Cisco? Is this true?

Question 2: The following configuration is being used for the point-to-point routers (with an external CSU/DSU). I now have an internal CSU/DSU and I'm not sure what changes need to be made to the configuration (clocking, framing, etc), please assist.

Question 3: Hopefully after you make the necessary corrections to the configurations for the internal CSU/DSU you can explain the following:
a. If you are adding the segment controller T1 1/0, what is this used for and when is it used?
b. You will notice that the current point-to-point configuration doesn't have an encapsulation on S0, why?
c. What type of cable will connect from the wall jack with the live circuit to S0/0 on the router? Cisco specific I imagine.

Regards,

Mike

Question 1: I was told that the IOS that comes with the router will not do QOS/traffic prioritization and that I would need to get a IP_VOICE IOS from Cisco? Is this true?

Your T1 will have data only? Then you can configure it with IOS you do not need IP_VOICE IOS.


Question 2: The following configuration is being used for the point-to-point routers (with an external CSU/DSU). I now have an internal CSU/DSU and I'm not sure what changes need to be made to the configuration (clocking, framing, etc), please assist.

What have you set on the external CSU/DSU for clocking, framing etc.? Please provide it and we can recommend the changes.

Question 3: Hopefully after you make the necessary corrections to the configurations for the internal CSU/DSU you can explain the following:
a. If you are adding the segment controller T1 1/0, what is this used for and when is it used?
b. You will notice that the current point-to-point configuration doesn't have an encapsulation on S0, why?
c. What type of cable will connect from the wall jack with the live circuit to S0/0 on the router? Cisco specific I imagine.

Will answer once we have more information from Q2.

Question 2:

I'm not very familar with the external CSU/DSU and it only a very small LCD. The routers will be connected to a new point to point circuit. Since the desired configuration will not include the external CSU/DSU or the prior circuit, can we make the assumption that no clocking or framing has been set and proceed to the configuration?

You can get the information from carrier, they will be able to provide it to you.

If you can provide us with the model number of external CSU/DSU, we may be able to get the information from it.

Cisco has defaults for framming etc., which may or may not be same as the external CSU/DSU. So not setting them may not work.

The cisco wic has an internal csu/dsu and is quite handy... I've got several of these set up in a p2p situation.

I'm asuming location 1 has a different subnet than location 2 (good network design practice dictates this...)
I'm going to give you 2 configs, because one router will have an extra line in it, and if both get that line, then it will not work....

If this doesn't work for you, let me know, as it's 2:30am and I'm a bit on the tired side, so i'm not as sharp as usual.

oops... just noticed I used different ips and subnets than your config, but if you alter the config with them. it should work fine.
Keep me posted.

I noticed that your configuration uses ppp encapsulation and mine uses HDLC. Can I still use HDLC encapsulation?

mattbcsCommented:
Yes, HDLC encapsulation will work just fine!
