Hi,

For the home LAB with 2801 router, is the 1xPVDM2-8 is enough or should I put another 1xPVDMP2-16 with him.

    Couldn't you have asked this in the thread you already created about that lab? icon_lol.gif

    You could do what I do and just get what seems feasible at the moment, and then grow your lab to bigger scales as your labs require.

    What VICs/VWICs are you using? The second PVDM2 will certainly come in handy when you get to things like conferencing and transcoding - which require a single DSP chip alone. Alternately you could remove all voice cards to free up the DSP, practice conferencing/transcoding, and replace but that's the messy method ;)

    Also, if you haven't already, check out the DSP calculator on Cisco.com:

    just do your conferencing at the HQ and beef up that one with a pvdm2-32...

    you can get by with remote sites with the pvdm2-8 ..

    fractionalize your HQ to each site and that will give u 4 sites total with 7-8 channels per site with g.711 .. that will vary with other codecs

    edit: thats if your planning on doing more than 1 site in your home lab (ccnp-v etc)
