QOS Implementing Cisco QOS

The Implementing Cisco Quality of Service (QOS) course provides delegates with in-depth knowledge of IP QoS requirements, conceptual models using Differentiated Services (DiffServ), Integrated Services (IntServ) and Best Effort (over provisioning) and the implementation of IP QoS on Cisco IOS switch and router platforms.

The curriculum covers the theory of IP QoS, design issues, and configuration of various QoS mechanisms to facilitate the creation of effective administrative policies providing QoS.

The course also gives delegates design and usage rules for various advanced IP QoS features and the integration of IP QoS with underlying Layer 2 QoS mechanisms, allowing them to design and implement efficient, optimised, and trouble-free multi-service networks.

Learning Objectives

After you complete this course you will be able to:

  • Explain the need for QoS, describe the fundamentals of QoS policy, identify and describe the different models that are used for ensuring QoS in a network.
  • Explain the use of MQC and AutoQoS to implement QoS on the network and describe some of the mechanisms used to monitor QoS implementations.
  • Given a converged network and a policy defining QoS requirements, classify and mark network traffic in order to implement the policy.
  • Use Cisco queuing mechanisms to manage network congestion
  • Use Cisco QoS congestion avoidance mechanisms to reduce the effects of congestion on the network.
  • Use Cisco QoS traffic policing and traffic shaping mechanisms to effectively limit the rate of network traffic
  • Use Cisco link efficiency mechanisms to improve the bandwidth efficiency of low-speed WAN links
  • Describe the recommended best practices and methods used for end-to-end QoS deployment in the enterprise.

Pre-Requisites

  • Completion of Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices (ICND) or Cisco Certified Networking Associate (CCNA). Additionally The Configuring BGP on Cisco Routers course (BGP) is recommended because some BGP background is assumed for the QoS course.
  • Interconnecting Cisco Network Devices (ICND)
  • Configuring BGP on Cisco Routers (BGP)
  • or Cisco Certified Networking Associate (CCNA)
