Hello everyone!
This is my first post.

Today I get my CCNA Voice (CVOICE) and i wanna go to CCVP, so i buy some equipment (waiting come) and i need ideas to topology with this equipments and what more i will need to simulate a PSTN network in my home lab.

I have this:

2 x 1760 w/ PVDM-256K-4, WIC-1DSU-T1, WIC- 1ENET, VIC-2FXO and VIC-2FXS (I thinking remove ENET and put E&M card, its necessary?)
1 x 1721 w/ 2 WIC-2T ( I will remove one and put in another router but i don't know where i will put, sugestion are welcome)
1 x 2520 ( 4 serial ports)
1 x 2611xm w/ call manager express (i'm thinking put one NM-1V w/ one VIC-2FXO, thats a good idea?)
1 x Catalist 2950 12 ports (need upgrade IOS to QoS, what is better)
1 x Catalist 2950 24 ports
1 x Catalist WS-C3524-PWR-XL-EN
1 x Phone 7960
1 x Phone 7960G
some analog phones to FXS ports

I have too CUCM 7 in VMWARE to integrate w/ topology

Well that is.

Forgive the long post and many questions, and excuse the typos.

Thanks for all!

    First off = Welcome to the madness :)

    Might want to start out with a quick forum search for "PSTN". You'll find that the majority of us around here are fans of using Cisco routers to simulate the PSTN. Lots of examples, spanning every budget, from clusters of inexpensive MCS3810s, to single router 2800s, and everything in between (2600XMs, lots of 1760s, and so on).

    Good discussion here:
