Hi all, I am soon to implement qos, can anyone tell me the difference between qos and cos, is cos used on older switches? and on most new devices is it all qos ? also when running this, does it have to be on every port on every switch btween the connection ?
Quality of service refers to control mechanisms that can provide different priority to different data flow.
Ex. At the ethernet layer i.e Layer2 the frame uses the Class of Service in 802.1p and ISL. Qos can be used to place frames in different Queues based on the priority set in 802.1p. This allows each queue to have different service levels. Each queue can have a threshold set. The thresholds act as the starting point for the packet to be dropped.
At layer 3 we have the ToS(Type of Service or IP Precedence). Many implementations provide for the mapping of the ToS to CoS. This provides for an end to end priority for the traffic flow.
Hi everyone, I would like to thank you in advance for any help you can provide a newcomer like myself!

I am going to design and build an LAN network under a tunnel underground with long distance between the switches.
I will have 2 Catalyst switches and 8 Industrial IE3000, and they will be connected with fiber.
