QoS for softphone

Hi,

We will like to prioritize voice traffic for all softphones.

The PBX is hosted at vendor's site, so we connect the softphone to an external IP of the PBX.

I have scripted something below but not sure how to apply to interfaces as softphones are installed on user computers.

Softphones and PCs are on same subnet.

ip access-list extended QoS-ACL-01

permit ip 0.0.0.0 0.0.1.255 9.9.29.1

class-map match-all QoS-CM-01

match access-group name QoS-ACL-01

!

policy-map QoS-PM-01

class QoS-CM-01

  set dscp ef

!

interface ???

service-policy input QoS-PM-01

Do I have to apply "service-policy input QoS-PM-01" to all interfaces?

Cheers,

Hannah

You might, if the softphone is incapable of marking packets itself.

Other possible options might be to mark on egress uplink and/or mark in ingress vlan.

Hi Tomas,

9.9.29.1 is the PBX host, traffic destined to 9.9.29.1 is only for VOICE.

What is voice RTP?

What if I just implement on uplink?

QoS for softphone

If you implement this policy as input policy, then it should be implemented on all interfaces (subinterfaces in case of VLAN) from where "policied" traffic is expected to arrive.

Looking on your ACL, there is a little bug... the rule should be more like this:

   permit ip 192.168.0.0 0.0.1.255 host 9.9.29.1

Be aware, this rule will mark all traffic to host 9.9.29.1 as EF, even other then VOICE packets... you can try to use NBAR to recognize just voice traffic and mark just voice RTP packets as EF.

I have applied "service-policy input QoS-PM-01" to the uplink interface and notice there is no packet matching to the policy.

But I do have packets matching the ACL for destination host 9.9.29.1.

Can someone explain what is going on?
