Configuring 802.1p Class of Service

The 2900 XL and 3500 XL switches provide QoS-based IEEE 802.1p class of service (CoS) values. QoS uses classification and scheduling to transmit network traffic from the switch in a predictable manner. QoS classifies frames by assigning priority-indexed CoS values to them and gives preference to higher-priority traffic such as telephone calls.

How Class of Service Works

Before you set up 802.1p CoS on a 2900 or 3500 XL switch that operates with the Catalyst 6000 family of switches, refer to the Catalyst 6000 documentation. There are differences in the 802.1p implementation, and they should be understood to ensure compatibility.
