Deploying VoIP on ArubaOS-Switch

Greetings!

 

Voice over IP (VoIP) support is a key part of the ArubaOS-Switch platform, and we're constantly developing ways to make deploying IP phones simpler and more reliable.

 

To that end, we've developed a brief white paper that points out some of our VoIP-focused features, with CLI examples.  Take a look, and let us know what you think!

Hi,

 

This whitepaper is almost perfect, It does leave out one step.

 

#device-profile device-type {device type name} enable

 

Nothing will happen untill the above enable is applied. Everything working great otherwise

I've replaced it with a fixed copy. Thank you for pointing that out!

Re: Deploying VoIP on ArubaOS-Switch

Matt,

 

While I have your attention,  I do have an issue,  maybe you can help me with.  The cisco phones I just received seem to be sending out the following lldp oui - Pulled it off a frame from wireshark

 

lldp oui 00120f sub-type 1

 

This problem I am now facing,  this lldp oui also seems to be received from the cisco switch that is uplinking the aruba.  So,  the device-profile ends up being appied to my trunk uplink port.  As you would think,  causes far greater problems.  For the minute I am working around it by setting lldp to tx-only on the uplink port.  Is there better way to do this?  I have a couple switch jumps and it would be nice to have lldp on both ends of the uplink.

 

Thanks

I don't think there is a good solution for this use case.

Are you using authentication? In that case you good assign the voice VLAN using a user-role or tagged VLAN in the RADIUS accept.
Other 'solution' is not to use device profiles.

Would be nice if we can apply the device profile based on the advertised capabilities in the LLDP data.

Re: Deploying VoIP on ArubaOS-Switch

This is curious. I'm not familiar with the specific LLDP OUI I'm seeing; is it coming directly from the phone, or possibly from a device connected behind it?

 

I would recommend opening a TAC case to engage support resources; in parallel, if you could send the switch running configuration and packet captures from the phone and uplink ports showing the offending LLDP packets to me via PM, that would help with the investigation.
