Prioritizing Video Traffic Over the LAN.

Can someone advise the best switch for video optimization?  We currently have a Cisco 4948.  The switch handles both video and standard data.  I just don't feel the video traffic is managed properly.  Can someone also direct me to a link explaning some config options?

Thank you

Charlie

Re: Prioritizing Video Traffic Over the LAN.

Hello Charlie,

the C4948 should be good enough for video if configured appropriately.

You look like interested in QoS but multicast configuration may play a role too depending from your own environment, that is your company is delivering video traffic as multicast sessions or unicast flows.

a good source of information is in the Solution Reference network designs

http://www.cisco.com/go/srnd

there is section also for Video.

see

Hope to help

What Cisco Catalyst offers COS and has the ability to effectively prioritize traffic?  We currently are running a 4948 model.

Thanks,

Your 4948 is perfectly capable of prioritising traffic, it has a full QOS feature set ie. marking/policing/queueing etc. See this config guide to get you started -

http://cisco.com/en/US/docs/switches/lan/catalyst4500/12.2/46sg/configuration/guide/qos.html

note the config guide is for the 4500 but they share the same features as the 4900.
