Fix Recommendation

Configure the network elements supporting VoIP services to interconnect redundant uplinks following physically diverse paths to physically diverse network elements in the layer above. Configure the network elements to support the full bandwidth handled by the network element using routing protocols facilitating failover.

Check Contents

If the network elements do not support a minimum of 96 instruments, this is not applicable. If the network elements are deployed in a LAN that covers an extremely small geographical area in a single physical location, this is not applicable. To meet the applicability for a geographical area, most users must be within 100 meters cabling distance of the core equipment, and the access layer switches must not be separated from the single central core location.

Confirm the network elements configuration supporting VoIP services to interconnect redundant uplinks following physically diverse paths to physically diverse network elements in the layer above with support for the full bandwidth handled by the network element using routing protocols facilitating failover.

If the network elements supporting VoIP services do not connect redundant uplinks following physically diverse paths to physically diverse network elements in the layer above, this is a finding. If the network elements configuration does not support the full bandwidth handled by the network element using routing protocols facilitating failover, this is a finding.
