I am new to QOS, and am looking for the easiest way to give the highest priority to all VoIP traffic between two routers (connected via serial T1).
I have read about DSCP / IP Precendence / COS / WFQ / ....
but I am not sure which comes into place when I am only worried about router to router communication. Eventually I will want to configure QOS on the LAN (through our catalyst switches), but for now I just want to get the WAN traffic dialed in.
I am assuming I will need two policies per router (one for inbound, and one for outbound), is it as simple as:
On a serial interface, you only need to put QOS on the outbound traffic. We have found something like the following to work well:
class-map match-all VoIP
match access-group 100
class-map match-all Video
match access-group 101
access-list 100 permit ip any any dscp ef
access-list 100 permit ip any any precedence critical
access-list 101 permit ip any any dscp af41
access-list 101 permit ip any any precedence flash-override
Put the command "service-policy output QOS-T1" on the serial interfaces and set your bandwidth commands appropriately for the compression type you are using and the number of simultaneous calls. You may also want to look at classifying your call control traffic as well, although not as high as the actual voice traffic.
You'll want to use WRED on your ethernet side of the router, which is enabled through the use of the random-detect command.
Finally, pay close attention to the revision of IOS you are using. The config I showed is considered class-based weighted fair queuing (CBWFQ) and is only supported on newer code.
We are pleased to announce availability of Beta software for 16.6.3.
16.6.3 will be the second rebuild on the 16.6 release train targeted
towards Catalyst 9500/9400/9300/3850/3650 switching platforms. We are
looking for early feedback from customers befor...
