(For many routers.)


class-map match-any payload

match dscp ef46


class-map match-any signalling

match dscp af21


policy-map simple


class payload

priority . . .


class signalling

bandwidth . . .


interface ?

service-policy output simple

Unsure what you're asking. If you're wondering about the " . . . ", that's where you specify the bandwidth allocations. Syntax depends on IOS version and how you desire to specify bandwidth; value depends on what your VoIP traffic needs.

According to the following, http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps10030/products_qanda_item09186a0080a36a8e.shtml#qa3, G729 uses 24 Kbps per call.


Somewhere on Cisco's site, I recall there's better documentation for bandwidth requirements, but unable to find it at the moment. Hopefully such documentation would also provide bandwidth needed for signalling, although generall that's not too much (10% to 20% of the bearer bandwidth?)

what kind of qos would this be called, just priotising, or is it policing ?

For the voice bearer traffic, both. (The sample config I provide uses CBWFQ and places the voice bearer traffic into LLQ, which sends its traffic first, but also polices the maximum bandwidth when there's congestion.)


For the signally traffic, bandwidth reservation. (Normal CBWFQ classes, should guarantee a minimum defined bandwith when there's congestion, although more might be used.)
