This Authorized Cisco 5-day course gives you the knowledge and skills required to design, implement, and troubleshoot Quality of Service (QoS) on a network.
- Course Outline
This Authorized Cisco 5-day course gives you the knowledge and skills required to design, implement, and troubleshoot Quality of Service (QoS) on a network. The course addresses the essential QoS technologies and applications for both Service Provider and Enterprise networks. Successful implementation of the techniques taught in this course will have a dramatic impact on critical network application performance.
What You'll Learn
- Building blocks of IP QOS
- Configure AutoQoS on WAN routers and on Catalyst access switches and monitor the results
- Configure FIFO and WFQ queuing on WAN routers and measure and analyze network performance
- Configure WRED on WAN routers to control which traffic is dropped during congestion
- Configure CBWFQ and LLQ on WAN routers to provide bandwidth and latency guarantees
- Configure COS-to-queue mapping and WRR queuing on the Catalyst 2950 switch
Network professionals interested in deploying state-of-the-art QoS techniques to support multimedia traffic would benefit from this course.

100% Enhanced Hands-On Labs
Our QoS labs are based on real VoIP and data rather than on simulated traffic. Cisco IP phones are used for voice calls in the classroom.
