RTP communications occur on an even UDP port, VoIP traffic uses a well-known UDP port range, 16384-32767. While the actual ports used are dynamically negotiated between end-devices or gateways, For UDP and similar protocols, RTP uses an even port number and the corresponding RTCP stream uses the next higher (odd) port number.


access-list 100 permit udp any any range 16384 32767


Class-map test

match protocol rtp audio

here is the RFC for RTP.

So far now you should understand which traffic shall you classify, the next step is which Qos method will you use, Legacy, MQC...etc
