Classification, prioritization on WAN routers (instead of Packeteer)

Unanswered Question
Feb 9th, 2008

Folks, I have been using Packeteer shapers in order to do classification, prioritization and reporting on my WAN.

Question:Is there any roadmap which could let me do same QoS on my WAN routers? I know I can do QoS today, but my technicians and management really need a rich set of graphical interface instead of command line output. Why spend money with expensive packet shapers if I can get that done in the router.

I have this problem too.

I've only read the vendor literature on some advanced "QoS" products, but they often seem to offer features beyond what's available on many Cisco WAN routers. So, even if you find a nice GUI interface, you might also carefully check the underlying features too.
