TZ270 Deployment Concerns in Regard to new VoIP System

In my scenario, only 2 of the 5 static IPs would be used, 1 for the SonicWall and 1 for the Edge Router.

Also not sure if this question was best to post here or on the Ubiquiti forums so I posted it in both.

Thank you for taking the time to read my post!

    You have the correct idea, and this is (unfortunately) a very common setup.

    In general, phone people don't know firewalling and won't work with IT people to set it up so they force clients into having multiple firewalls.

    Heh, you're not wrong but I was more going for the 'if you hard set the phone switchport to a specific VLAN, then plugging a PC in to the phone will put the PC on the phone VLAN' thing.

    Another thing most phone people don't 'get' is VLANing... VoIP phones are computers, treat it like one, not like an analog / digital phone! A managed switchport can do so much more than a FXS port on a PBX.
