If you are using Cisco Router you could use basically the followings mechanisms:

- (Congestion Management) Low Latency Queueing (LLQ) and CBWFQ

- (Classification) CAR or Service Policy

The recommendation is use a queue with strict priority, as LLQ, to videoconferencing.

The challenge is the identification of videoconference packet because of dynamic negotiation of port. So you have the followings alternatives to identify the videoconference:

- Cisco MCM/Proxy H.323;

- Identify by the IP address of terminal (disadvantage);

- Use the marking provided by some terminal (disadvantage);

- use a range of port provided by some terminal;

If your network supports RSVP, the PictureTel iPower version 3.0 supports RSVP and that is the best.
