Cisco® Implementing Cisco® Quality of Service (QOS)

Course Overview

This course provides students with 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 switches.

Who Should Attend

Channel Partner / Reseller Customer Employee

Course Objectives

At course completion students will be able to:

  • Understanding the components of the Cisco Unity system, describing their standard and optional features, and explaining how they integrate into a unified messaging system
  • Implementing Quality of Service (QoS) and methods for implementing and managing QoS
  • Managing network congestion and reducing the effects of congestion on the network
  • Traffic policing shaping mechanisms to effectively limit the rate of network traffic, and efficiency mechanisms to improve the bandwidth efficiency of the link
  • Providing QoS using Cisco best practices Technical Features of this course include the following:
  • MQC and AutoQoS
  • MQC and NBAR
  • RED, Weighted RED
  • QoS for Security Associated Certification: CCIP (QOS exam is 642-642)
