simple QOS config question

I have been asked to set up qos/ priority queuing and have a question about the best way to handle it.

A traditional PBX is converting voice to ip packets and sending it across a WAN link to another PBX. The PBX is making the signaling as DSCP 48 and the voice as DSCP 40.

At any given time the PBX will allow 4 calls max across the WAN at roughly 48k per call.

The WAN links are T1, and we are told bandwidth utilization is low.

Here are my proposed router config additions:

class-map match-all voice

match ip dscp 40

match ip dscp 48

!

policy-map LLQ

class voice

priority percent 40

class class-default

fair-queue

interface Serial0/3/0

service-policy output LLQ

Are my match ip dscp statements correct?

Is this sufficient to give us basic QOS?

Thanks,

Andy

Re: simple QOS config question

Hi

First it's more 'standard' to use DSCP 46 (ef) for voice streams, and 24 (CS3) for signalling... however this doesn't really matter as long as you prioritize what the PBX is marking.

Secondly, it's recommended that you provision the required amount of bandwidth for media streams in the policy using a 'priority' command, and then allocate some seperate bandwidth using the 'bandwidth' command for your signalling traffic.

This would require creating two classes - one for media, one for signalling...

Otherwise it looks OK.

Re: simple QOS config question

Thanks for the quick response Aaron. I'll set a second class up and seperate the signal and voice and use a priority cmd to set the voice.
