Add Voice to any CCNA or CCNP R&S or Security Lab Kit!
If you already have your CCNA or CCNP Routing & Switching or a Security lab kit and want to add voice to it, or you are purchasing one of our other Lab Kits and want to add voice to it, we created this add-on kit just for you!
Utilizing your Cisco 2800 or 3800 series of routers, this kit adds the necessary Digital Signal Processors and interface cards (MFT-T1’s) to those routers for voice.
Then we include a 3750v2 PoE layer three switch which provides power to your IP phones.
To make calls over the Internet, you can get a VoIP provider that provides a SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) and make calls over the Internet for a very low cost. We can provide you this service too!
To simulate a PRI Voice T1 line, a VWIC-2MFT-T1 Multi-fractional serial card and a pair of VWIC-1MFT-T1 cards are included. These cards can send voice, data, or both over a T1 simulated connection. Two T1 crossover cables are provided to connect these cards.
Plenty of phones are included in this add-on kit. One Cisco 7962 IP phone and two 7941 IP phones.
The CCNA Certification (formally separate Voice and Video certifications) requires two exams to be passed to become collaboration certified. The first exam (210-260 exam) covers many topics including CME (Call Manager Express), CUCM (Cisco unified CallManager), CUE & Unity (Voicemail) CUPS (Cisco Unified Presence) and more. We include all the (demo license) Cisco software you need to learn CUCM, CUC, CUPS, SDM, CCP, Cisco Communicator and others with your purchase of this Lab Kit. We also provide you with backup copies of the Cisco IOS’ plus additional software including a TFTP server and other utilities. Demo software is provided via access to our download server for all of the voice demo files such as CUCM, CUC, UCCX and much much more. HOWEVER, we highly recommend that you purchase one of our SATA drives with all this software loaded on it. This will save days of downloading. You can find that drive at: Voice hard drive
The second exam (210-265) tests your skills to implement various Cisco Video endpoints in converged Cisco video infrastructures. It also tests a candidate’s ability to implement and troubleshoot Cisco Unified Communication and Collaboration, TelePresence, and Digital Media Player in different Cisco business video solution architectures. However, this test does not need a lab to study for as most questions are on the equipment specifications, features, and very little on configuration or setup. But, if you want a pair of Cisco 9971 color video IP phones with camera to help you study the video side of the exam, we offer an add on option at Video Phones add-on.
Voice and video training is provided by the Cisco Press CCNA Collaboration book set and you can configure the labs in the books on your lab gear. The book has quizzes, test preparation guidelines, and practice questions. Our staff used these books to help earn their CCNA Collaboration certification this year.
OPTIONALLY, we can offer you a special discount on CCIE Kevin Wallace’s CCNA Collaboration course with the purchase of this Lab Kit. Check out his training for free at https://courses.kwallaceccie.com/users/checkout/auth.
This is a BYOS Lab Kit, (Bring Your Own Server) to run the Cisco CUCM and other demo software. If you have a server with at least 12GB of RAM and 500GB or harddrive space, you can load VMware ESXi 6 (its FREE at https://my.vmware.com/en/web/vmware/evalcenter?p=free-esxi6) then install your Cisco Demo software and start learning. Another option is to purchase VMware Workstation and load it onto your PC to run the demo software. You may need to add more RAM to your PC depending on how much you currently have and what additional programs you wish to run at the same time.
If you do not have a spare server or want to run the software on your PC, you can purchase one of our voice servers with everything pre-loaded on to it from us. See below for server options.
We provide you with UNLIMITED FREE technical support for each certification lab you purchase. We’re just an e-mail or phone call away ready to help you.

To configure the routers and switches, you need a computer with a DB9 serial port to use with the console cable. However, most of today’s computers do not have this port. You can solve this problem by purchasing a USB to serial adapter like the one we offer below. Please note that when resetting a password on some Cisco devices, you need to press CTRL-BREAK while the unit is first powered on. Many of the “cheap” USB to serial adapters do not pass this code, ours does!
At the bottom of this page you will find a link to our USB to serial adapter as well as many other great accessories.
Please visit our Shipping Policy page for information if you are not located within the continental United States including AA, AE, and AP shipments before you order online.
