Cisco AutoQos is a Cisco IOS Software feature that automatically provisions Cisco IOS QoS features for voice traffic for Cisco router and Cisco Catalyst switch platforms.
Cisco AutoQoS automates consistent deployment of QoS features across Cisco routers and switches. It enables various Cisco QoS components based on the network environment and Cisco best-practice recommendations. With the increased prominence of delay-sensitive applications (voice, video, and other multimedia applications) deployed in networks today, proper QoS configuration ensures high-quality application performance.
You must have a thorough understanding of various QoS features (such as queuing, dropping, traffic conditioning, queue-depth, drop thresholds, burst parameters, LFI, and cRTP) and the complexities of configuring many parameters associated with these features. Cisco AutoQoS helps overcome these difficulties by automatically configuring the device for Cisco QoS features and variables with the correct parameters.
Users can subsequently tune parameters that are generated by Cisco AutoQoS to suit their particular application needs.
Cisco AutoQoS VoIP feature is supported only on these interfaces and PVCs:
