I'm about to set up a video conference system between branches over our provider's mpls network. It would look like the following:

video equip ( -> (fa0/1) branch (s0/0) -> provider -> (s0/0) corp (fa0/1) -> video equipment (

QoS has been applied at both ends (Branch/Corp) from the provider's viewpoint. I need to know how the best way to handle qos would be. Below is what I'm thinking:

Branch router:

access-list 20 permit host

class Inbound

match ip address 20

class outbound

match ip dscp af41

policy-map Inbound

set dscp af41

policy-map Outbound

bandwidth 512k

int fa0/1

service-policy input Inbound

int S0/0

service-policy output Outbound

This is all from my head above, so I figure the syntax isn't 100% correct. My goal is to ensure that the incoming traffic from the device is marked with AF41. On the Corp side, I would have another policy map INBOUND that states to match on the AF41 and then I'm assuming that I would set my bandwidth statements on Outbound on the Corp fa0/1 side? That's where I'm confused.
