For the attached topology, I've assigned 347.76 kbps as a total bandwidth including overheads for 4 simultaneous calls, I need to assign high priority bandwidth for ftp traffic. Also I should give suitable priority to the routing protocols. How can i assign priority for it, can someone please guide me, Thanks

Considering this is your assignment, I believe it's up to you to read through the documentation that has already been linked and put together a solution for yourself. The people here will typically be happy to review whatever you put together, or help if you get stuck on a particular topic or question.

The links for how to do this have already been provided.

I would do something like this:

class-map voice

match ip dscp ef

class-map match-any sig

match ip dscp af31

match ip dscp cs3

class-map ftp

match protocol ftp

policy-map wan-edge

class voice

priority 348

class signaling

bandwidth perecent 5

class ftp

bandwidth percent ???

class class-default


Put in whatever percent of bandwidth you want for FTP where the ???'s are. Then apply to the interface

interface serial 0/0/0

service-policy output wan-edge

Please rate if this helped.
