I have a query about QoS. I guess this is more the theory of QoS than any actual implementation.
Say we have a CME system with QoS setup to give priority to all phone traffic, this CME system uses a SIP trunk to receive incoming and make outgoing calls. My collegue believes that because QoS is setup for the outgoing queue, what is to stop somone starting off a big download and throttling the downstream from our internet connection.
I was thinking that because acknowledgments sent for the download would be in the queue behind the voice traffic, that this would in effect, alleviate our problem to an extent.
Is our thinking correct? Is there any other way to minimise downloads effecting voice traffic?
