Wired Voip and Wireless Data Performance
Posted on 2011-05-05
I have question about the performance of running a wired VoIP phones and wireless data lan concurrently using the same WAN connection.
I have a wireless LAN that connects to a SonicWall TZ200 firewall for routing and UTM. The firewall connects to 10/2 mb cable modem for internet access. I have 5 client PC's and 3 printers connected to the wireless network. Response time is very good up and down.
We are installing VoIP Phones. The plan is to connect these via ethernet cable to a PoE Switch, Then connect the SonicWall Lan X0 cable to the switch.Any suggestions you have regarding how best to do this and what kind of perfromance I might expect will be appreciated
Also, I need to purchase a PoE switch any suggestions as to type or model. The phones are Voip Astra and will transmit/receive calls via the internet to home office PBX/IP in the same city.
