How do I configure tagging for VLAN's with IP phones?
Posted on 2013-05-23
I am trying to implement VLAN's in my network. Currently everything is on a flat 192.168.0.0 /24 network, and I am nearly out of IP's. It is definitely time to redesign the network to allow for future growth, and I think the best way to do that is to use VLAN's.
I have Cisco Small Business series switches with PoE, a SonicWall NSA 2400 firewall and Mitel IP phones with integrated switches (1 port for network, 1 port for PC). All Sites are connected via TLS.
I need help in understanding how to configure the VLAN tagging in order to accomplish this. The goal is to have each site's data and voice traffic on it's own VLAN, yet be able to communicate with servers on the management LAN - to have the IP phones get their IP from DHCP on one VLAN, and the connected PC get it's IP from DHCP in another scope. DHCP is from a Windows Server with the new scopes already created and activated.
Again, everything is currently on the 192.168.0.0 /24 network
Here's how I would like it to be:
VLAN 1 - MGMT 10.0.1.0 /24
VLAN 10 - Site 1 Data 10.0.10.0 /24
VLAN 11 - Site 1 Voice 10.0.11.0 /24
VLAN 20 - Site 2 Data 10.0.20.0 /24
VLAN 21 - Site 2 Voice 10.0.21.0 /24
VLAN 30 - Site 3 Data 10.0.30.0 /24
VLAN 31 - Site 3 Voice 10.0.31.0 /24
And so on, for a total of 8 Sites
I wish I could give more than 500 points; looking forward to your advice!
