Qos Router Cisco With Firewall Fortigate

I have qos in 4 router cisco  connected by metroethernet, and i have one firewall connected in the same metroethernet.

The config in router cisco is:

policy-map QoS
class Trafico-Voz-Out
  priority 1000
  set cos 5
class Signaling-Voz-Out
  bandwidth 96
  set cos 3
class class-default
  fair-queue
  random-detect
policy-map QoS-Metro
class class-default
  shape average 6000000
  service-policy QoS


I can implementate QOS in firewall fortigate, and work without problem, or i  need install another router beteween router and firewall, and connected the router direct to metroethernet with qos. What you recommend?.

Re: Qos Router Cisco With Firewall Fortigate

You probably need to assess how much traffic will be going through the firewall performance of your firewall, i presume your firewall will be performing NAT/ACL/Packet-Filtering (Layer3-4) is it acting as an application gateway as well? and implementing QoS on the firewall might just overkill. If your firewall is capable of QoS and is a high performing device should be fine to implement QoS on your firewall itself.
