I need to guarantee bandwidth, how?

Unanswered Question

We have a ISR 3945 servicing our 100Mbps internet connection, used for everything (web surfing, mail, vpn, etc).  We are putting a new video bridge behind it in our dmz, and I want to guarantee that the bridge has 10Mbps reserved for it.  I don't care about the other traffic, I just want to ensure that the video pipe has what it needs.   Can I accomplish this somewhat simply with the 3945?  Or do I essentially have to classify everything?  We were hoping for a quick "save 10Mbps for the video" .... guessing thats not the case

You may want to contact the service provider and ask about QOS options. You have no control of the bandwidth outside your network. Once you talk to the provider you could then mark packets appropriatley.
