Course Objectives

The Design of Cisco QoS Solutions

  • identify the benefits gained from utilizing quality of service (QoS) technologies in an enterprise.
  • distinguish between the Best-effort, Integrated Service, and Differentiated Service QoS architectures, and identify the classification and marking components of a Cisco QoS solution.
  • distinguish between the congestion avoidance, congestion management, traffic conditioning, and link efficiency mechanisms of a Cisco QoS solution.
  • differentiate between the QoS design guidelines for data, voice, and video applications.
  • identify the QoS roles performed throughout an enterprise network.
  • associate specific QoS tools with the appropriate modules in an enterprise network for a given data, application, and network scenario.
  • determine the QoS design solution for a given enterprise network scenario.
