This document does not include power inline and quality of service (QoS) configurations. Prerequisites Requirements Ensure that you meet these requirements before you attempt this configuration: IP Phone Configuration Refer to Quick Start Guide Cisco IP Conference Station 7935 or Cisco Unified IP Conference Station 7936 Phone Guide for more information. • Virtual LAN Configuration Refer to Virtual LANs/VLAN Trunking Protocol (VLANs/VTP) - Introduction for more information. • Components Used The information in this document is based on the Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Switch with Supervisor Engine 720 and running Cisco IOS® Software Release 12.2(18)SXD6 and Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Switch with Supervisor Engine 2 and running Cisco CatOS Software Release 8.4(4). The information in this document was created from the devices in a specific lab environment. All of the devices used in this document started with a cleared (default) configuration. If your network is live, make sure that you understand the potential impact of any command. Related Products This configuration can also be used with Cisco Catalyst Switches that run Cisco IOS Software, except Cisco 2900XL and 3500XL series. The CatOS configurations can be used with any Cisco Catalyst Switches that run Catalyst OS Software. Conventions Refer to the Cisco Technical Tips Conventions for more information on document conventions. Background Information This document explains the configuration of the switches that connect the PCs and IP phone Polycom SoundPoint IP 430 on a switch port. This document also explains the configuration of the switches that connect to a Polycom IP Conference Station 7935/7936 switch port. The Polycom IP Conference Station 7935/7936 has a single 10/100BaseTx Ethernet LAN connection to the network through an RJ-45 cable interface and unlike the other Cisco Unified IP phones 7900 Series, it does not have a 10/100BaseTx Ethernet LAN connection in order to connect to a PC. Due to the absence of the provision to connect to a PC with the 10/100BaseTx Ethernet LAN connection on the Cisco 7935/7936 IP Conference Phone, the concept of a voice or auxiliary VLAN does not directly apply and can cause problems. The single 10/100BaseTx Ethernet LAN connection that the Cisco IP Conference Station 7935/7936 has is used in order to connect this device to a switch port. Since this connection carries traffic for only the voice, the switch port should belong to a single VLAN.traffic for only the voice, the switch port should belong to a single VLAN....
