I have a customer that have none cisco softphones installed on thier laptops. In the softphone application we set the DSCP to use for RTP traffic to 46 to comply with Cisco medianet. This works well as long as the client is wired. Problem comes with wireless.
WMM and 802.11e states that class 6 and 7 is voice. WMM maps DSCP 48 to class 6 and 56 to class 7 both these classes end up in AC_VO. DSCP 46 on the other hand maps into class 5 witch maps into AC_VI (Video).
The result is that all traffic from the softphone client is treated as video over the wireless and exiting the AP on the wire the traffic is marked with DSCP 34.
I can handle remapping DSCP 34 to DSCP 46 (EF) after the WLC but the question is: Do the APs treat the traffic correctly over the air?
I have tried to find a way to modify the settings in the clients wireless nic so that DSCP 46 maps to WMM class 6 but no go. I have also tried to find any specs on the differences in trestment of AC_VI and AC_VO in Cisco Lightweight AP to see if it's accceptale but info is very sparse.
Anyone got any ideas how to deal with this beside just changing the softphone settings to send traffic with dscp 48?
Some hard facts:
