VoIP Testing with Cisco Devices

Level 1
Level 1

Hi all,

I have a configuration in the lab right now with a non-Cisco device that can route VoIP calls.  Basically, I have two subnets such that in each subnet I have a non-Cisco device to route the phone call.  There are two phones (1 on each subnet).  The non-Cisco device act as a media gateway for the call.  Furthermore, this device can also interleave voice packets from multiple users into a single packet.  Doing so allows my system to save ALOT of bandwidth.  I am planning to do a similar test on Cisco devices (Call manager, IP phone, etc.).  So my question is, do Cisco devices have support to interleave voice packets from different users into a single packet to save bandwidth?  My company is currently performing this test to evaluate which product to be deployed on our current system.

RTP multiplex is supported with recent IOS.

Also supported on the MX8800, that is a big WAN switch.

Thanks for the reply Paolo.

Quick questions - Does the MX8800 require a Call Manager for SCCP call establishment?  Does it require a gateway for PSTN?  Also, could you briefly describe what RTP multiplexing is?


The MGX is exclusively a service provider device, not used by Enterprise customers.

RTP multiplexing, as the name says, puts media from multiple media flows inside one same packet.
