VLAN when VOIP and Data share same drops
Posted on 2013-10-22
We are new to VLAN configuration and need some guidance in the setup of our relatively simple network. We have a network where each of 9 workstations drop runs from our Dell Powerconnect 3524 POE switch to an Aastra 6757i VOIP phone which is then connected to Desktop Computers. There is a file server and a separate application server on the LAN. Our Edgemarc 4550 router is configured for separate voice (192.168.65.x on router port 2) and data networks (192.168.59.x on router port 3). The data network has a VLAN ID of 1 and the VOIP network has a VLAN ID of 30. We have the router configured to provide DHCP for the VOIP phones (192.168.65.x) and the file server to provide DHCP for the data network.
We are unsure as to how to configure the switch and phones so that we separate the VOIP and Data traffic onto the separate router ports. We have the data network terminating on port 1 of the switch, and the VOIP network terminating on port 2. Do we set up tagging on the phones? Do we need trunking? How do we configure the 3524 switch.
