we are looking at installing video over IP throughout our infrastructure and will be trialing it soon. We have been told by the supplier that it will need about 2mbps bandwidth, so we have arranged to have 2 of our existing links to be increased by 2Mbps. What we'd like to do is to prioritise and limit the video over IP traffic to 2Mbps to verify that it is indeed ok to run on 2Mbps. For the trial only we don't want the Video over IP traffic to go over 2 Mbps.
I've attached our QoS settings on our core router and was wondering if you kind folks could fill in the gaps for video over IP? I'm trying to find out DSCP values and stuff so place an XX or something instead of what will be the real value if that makes sense?
I've looked at "shape peak" or "police CIR" but I don't understand both enough to decide if any will suite what we want.
thanks for your time and patience.
Actual tranmission is always at the speed of the interface. A shaper may queue some packets to maintain an average rate, a policer may drop somes packets to maintain an average rate. So yes the shaper will limit the bandwidth to your desired bandwidth of 2 Mbps but based on an average. For what you're trying to accomplish, this should be "good enough".
