Softphones LAN QoS

Hi,

I'll appreciate if anyone out there could send me a QoS Layer II config when Cisco softphones are being used in a big way with every PC having softphone installed on it.

Thanks

Re: Softphones LAN QoS

We also have a large IP Communicator deployment....

Here is a good doc. http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/voicesw/ps5475/products_administration_guide_chapter09186a008020ad96.html

Yet i don't know if it is quite enough. Do recall that IP Communicator uses CDP and traffic is automatically marked. You can then trust this marking at the switch and router and treat it appropriately when going out over your WAN etc.

Another thing to remember (as many forget) is that since the IP Phone will strip all CoS from the PC and remark its own traffic....if you are doing this as a sample or test environment, you must not have IP Communicators on PC's running behind phones. It will defeat the purposes of the Communicator's traffic marking.

Hope it helps.
