Seperating data and phones using VLANS when PC's use IP phone for their network connection
Posted on 2008-10-31
Currently 50% of users are obtaining a network connection to their PC's from the network port on the IP 2002 phone due to lack of network ports. Currently we have only one subnet (.0) which runs the data and phone system.
To increase performance we would like to seperate the phone from the .0 subnet to it's own subnet, say .3 using VLANS. I suppose my main question is how to configure the BCM and switches to achieve this whilst allowing PC's connecting via the phone to obtain data from the .0 subnet?
I have read a bit on ADAC which seems to create a Voice VLAN, but need to know that PC's can still operate on the .0 subnet. The core switch will be a HP Procurve 2610 with 3 VLANS, and they will be use tagging so they an be spread to the Nortel switches.
Hope I've made sense of what we're trying to achieve, any advice and details would be greatly appreciated.
