I don't know how extensively you want to use your training setup, but as far as I know you have quite the same functionality with your softphone as you do with your "hardware" phones.

You would be able to call internally to the different IP phones. However if you also want to call to the outside you would require additional hardware (gateway) to connect your callmanager to the POTS system.

I'm still learning for my CCVP, so I might be a bit off here... but as far as I know then you're all set. The softphone has the same functionality as the IP phones, so that shouldn't be a problem. Just calling through the Callmanager shouldn't be a problem.

You might have a modern environment with all sorts of high-tech equipment, but what makes it worthwhile is how you seamlessly bring together the presentation with audio, video and lighting. The ATEN Control System provides integrated control and system automation.

Hi,

I have played arround with asterisk a lot. If you want to test different features of IP Phones then you can buy Cisco phones, as well as Grandstream IP Phones. But to learn the IP Telephony, Call switching, SIP, RTP, RTCP and other VoIP stuff , softphones are more then enough.

You can make internal calls with the softphones, you will be limited to have one on each PC. You can do most anything in a lab environment with 3 phones.

Let me know if you need any assistance with this and we will take care of it.

What version of Call Manager? Do you have the CIPC or the older softphone?
The CIPC is a fully functioning software version of the 7970 phone.
