I am Jay Kishan. I work in an organization as a Network Associate. We are using VoIP to communicate with our remote office branchs. There is a little question that i need to make. How can we apply advance QoS on the ethernet interface of the router through which the remote sites are connected. We were using serial interface for some time for the connectivity and with that MLP was working fine for advance VoIP QoS. But with ethernet MLP doesnt work and therefore we are facing problems with voice qualirt. Please suggest some thing. Thanks in advance.
I believe I got the point Jay is talking about as I'm facing a similar issue.
In summary, we've around 12 sites connected via a provider MPLS cloud (check the attachment). The resources are centralised in one main site which has the biggest throughput -acting logically as a hub site. Its current link size is 50Mb connected to the MPLS cloud via a "Fast Ethernet" interface.
Also there's an output policy map (Gold-RT(15%, gold10%, silver35% and bronze leftover%), but the Main Site is bursting to the remote sites more than they can handle -as each class has a bigger bandwidth than the remote sites classes- ending up by the provider dropping the traffic at the remote site edge. All remote sites have QoS deployed -for output traffic, using similar classes of the Main Site-, making sure that each class is bursting a specific amount of data.
How can we limit the Main Site so it doesn't send more traffic than the remote sites can handle (it would be straight forward if we were using sub-interfaces) and at the same time making sure that each class -at the hub site- doesn't oversubscribe its limit as the sum of bandwidth for all sites is slightly bigger than 50 Mb. .
To answer the first point I'm thinking of using hierarchical traffic policy. In other words create one service policy with 11 classes (the number of sites) and under each class apply another service policy where we match on the destination of the subnets to that site and use MQC to prioritise different type of traffic:
interface FastEthernet 0/1
service-policy output QOS-OUT
service-policy output Site01
service-policy output Site02
service-policy output site11
match access-group name Site01-Subnets
The extended ACL Site01-Subnets will match âanyâ as source with destination being all Site01 subnets
And where âservice-policy output Site01â is a mirror of the service policy applied on output direction at Site01 MPLS router
But then how can I respond to the other challenge? That's the total Main Site bandwidth is less than the sum of all sites bandwidth! Then how can I limit the sum of all classes -of different service policies- of one type to a certain percentage in Main Site?
Is this achievable or do you think we need a dedicated hardware to achieve this design (packeteer or similar technology)
Thanks for you help. But let me describe the situation in a bit detail. We are connected to all of our remote sites through VSAT's iDirect technology. In this setup our router gets connected to the iDirect equipment through ethernet. But the problematic thing is that the link's speed is of 64-128 KB only. And on that little link all of the services such as voice, email, fax, SAP etc work. If we could apply Advance QoS on that ethernet port, things will go fine. Due to company's some stupid policy we cant increase the bandwidth, so we will have to stick with the Advance QoS solution in any case. Please advice a workable solution. I was looking for the solution and saw something like RSVP. Do you think this will work in my situation. And if yes please advice some example configuration and a little more details that i need to look into. Thanks in advance.
what you need is a service-policy with shaping and nested LLQ. Example:
class-map match-all voice
match dscp ef
shape average 128000
interface ethernet X/Y
service-policy output shaping
What this does, is first to shape all output on ethernet to 128Kbps that is you supposed uplink speed (actual speed can be even lower), the within this constrain, voice packets (that normally have DSCP set to EF), will be given absolute priority, up to a maximum of 25 Kbps (enough for a single compressed voice call in g.729).
You can define other service-polices and classes, apply them under policy map "shaping".
If you have voice going over the satellite, I suggest you investigate the possibility of using the iLBC codec that is the only one specifically designed for packet networks where delay/jitter and packet loss are present.
The short answer is that you don't.... That isn't entirely true while at
the same time it kind of is, but for the most part you don't configure
the softkeys. You enable or disable them via TCL. Here is the long
