Course Objectives

Cisco ONT 1.0: TCP and QoS Traffic Management and Mechanisms

  • recognize how TCP, in conjunction with RED, WRED, and CBWRED, manages the traffic flow between two hosts.
  • recognize how CBWRED is configured and monitored.
  • recognize Cisco class-based traffic-policing and class-based traffic-shaping operations and basic configuration.
  • recognize Cisco class-based header compression operations and basic configurations.
  • recognize the purpose and basic configuration of QoS preclassify for traffic going over IPsec and GRE tunnels.
  • configure QoS preclassify in a given scenario.
  • identify the elements of IP QoS SLA, the typical network requirements within each functional block in an end-to-end network, and the best-practice QoS implementations.
  • recognize QoS implementations and requirements on WAN customer edge and provider edge routers, and how the control plane and CoPP are deployed.
