Now, with all the unified communications, voice, video and data are in the same device, and I try to give priority to voice and some applications, but in the WLC I can not find the way to mark all that kind of packets.
Is it possible to do that? like in a LAN making the marking as voice, signaling and any kind of application? as I marked in all the LAN.
Follow me here i want to make sure i understand....
1 laptop with a soft phone and web browser example...
The app would mark the traffic as EF. It does it 802.11e magic. Hits the AP. The AP translates the EF and marks the CAPWAP packet. It hits the WLC which is marked at 6 and the packet hits the wire at 6.
The browser traffic wouldnt be marked. It goes across the wireless. The ap gets the frame and sees no markings and doesnt mark the capwap. The packet hits the WLC and then marks it as 6 as well?
Am I understanding that right ?

For the soft phone scenario, if the app only marks the packet as EF, the AP doesn't do anything about it. Only when the WLC releases the packet on the LAN will the packet be prioritized with its layer 3 EF tag.
Serious soft phone applications will particulary mark the frame with 802.11e tag 5 (voice) so the wireless drivers really sends it with priority over other data frames. The AP receives it and puts the corresponding EF on the capwap packet.
Softphones who send with the 802.11 tag5 obviously also mark the layer 3 as EF for later on in the network ...
I think what most people don't realize is that there is a difference with Wireless Qos.
Wired QoS = When receiving the packet, the network device will treat that packet in priority when it is tagged
Wireless QoS = Tagged packets actually use more aggressive timers (that would normally violate the medium access rules of normal non-qos 802.11) so that statistically a voice packets will be sent most of the time before anyone else can send a data packet. The goal is that, since it's a shared medium and you maybe have 10 hardcore downloaders doing FTP, you want to cheat a bit by sending your voice packets before they had a chance to send their data packets.
So Wireless QoS adds the opportunity for a voice packet to be sent before any other data packet on a shared medium.
