CVoice lab setup

I found in CCVP by (Kevin Wallace) the (CCVP Lab Equipment Recommendation) document and it very useful, but my question is should I need all this stuff to setup my CVoice lab, it is very expensive.

    Since you've already done QoS, I wouldnt bother with the 3750. For CVoice you really dont need any specific switch, but PoE is nice.

    The AIM2-CUE is a faster version of the AIM-CUE, but for a lab it doesnt matter. Come to think of it, is a CUE needed at all for the CCVP?

    You can get by with non ISR routers for most (all?) things CCVP. Especially the 2811....2801 is fine.

    The PVDM2's can be adjusted accordingly as well. Although that config is ideal, it won't be a deal breaker if you cant support quite that many voice channels.
