Voice - Data Vlan


I have ordered several ProCurve Switch 2650, and wants to use Nortels ip-phones. Is there a possibility to use one Vlan for voice and one Vlan for datatraffic.
On Nortels phone there is a switch

I want to use one port on my proCurve for voice and data.

I have heard that i can creat tagged ports. Does it meen that i can set port 1 for vlan 5 and 6. Tagged traffic (voice) should go to vlan 5, and untagged should go to vlan 5?
vlan 5 for voice
vlan 6 for data
on port 1

I am new to this, a simple configuration example would been nice.

I believe you would untagg the port for vlan6 and tag the port vlan5

The phone should boot to vlan6, realize it belongs in 5 and reboot to vlan5

tag the voice (can tag multiple times)
untag the data (can only untag once)

Check your IP Phones if it can have 802.1Q Tagging.

In this case on the ProCurve Switch, tag the port connecting to the phone to a Voice Vlan, and Untagg it for Data Vlan.

This Scenario if you want to use the the IP Phone to connect to a PC also.

Be sure to update your 2650 to the latest firmware, http://www.hp.com/rnd/software/switches.htm

And give your Voice Vlan a higher Priority.

Good Luck !!!
