In a previous tutorial, i had showed how to use Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express (CUCME) Graphical User Interface(GUI) in order to configure Unified CME in GNS3. Here, i will show you step-by-step how you can setup Unified CME router in GNS3 using telephony-setup wizard. I have used Cisco IP Communicator (CIPC ) in this tutorial.You can integrate different IP phone’s (SIP IP phones e.g X-lite , SJphone ) with SCCP based IP Phones using CME router in order to setup a full-blown Small-Office Home-Office (SOHO) environment.
If you want to have ability to use multiple SCCP phones to test on your XP/Vista machines, you can use CIPC as well as IPblue’s VTGO-PC softphone. VTGO has added advantage that it offers ability to run multiple instances of SCCP phone so,you have more flexibility at your disposal.
