Chapter 3. Establishing Network Connectivity and Understanding IP Phone Registration

In both Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express (CUCME) and Cisco Unified Communications Manager (CUCM) environments, phones need to connect to the network to receive services such as IP addresses from DHCP, VLAN assignments for voice traffic, IP information on where to register, and Network Time Protocol (NTP) packets. This chapter focuses on establishing those services.

In this chapter, you will set up a voice network for the fictitious company Shiny Objects Incorporated (SOI). Before phones are connected, you must establish network connectivity and configure needed services.
