Implementing Cisco Quality of Service (QOS)

Course Description Schedule Course Outline

About this Course

QOS v2.5 includes several updates and aligns to a minimally updated blueprint. In comparison to the previous version, all graphics have been updated and content flow has been changed to reduce the amount of slides covered during course delivery. Several topics have been removed, while some topics, such as Cisco AutoQoS, QoS monitoring, and Campus QoS have been added or expanded. Course content has been adapted to Cisco IOS Software Release 15 and technically updated. Labs were expanded and reflect an updated topology and current networking gear.

Who should attend

The primary target audiences for the course are:

  • Pre- and post-sales technical engineers responsible for designing, implementing, or troubleshooting networks
  • Network architects responsible for designing multiservice networks to carry voice, video, and data traffic in enterprise or service provider environments
  • Advanced Unified Communications Specialization
  • Master UC Specialization
  • Master Telepresence ATP

Secondary target audiences are:

  • CCIE R&S Candidates

What You Will Learn

After completing this course the student should be able to:

  • Explain the need for QoS, describe the fundamentals of QoS policy, and 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 on the network and describe some of the mechanisms used to monitor QoS implementations
  • Use Cisco QoS queing 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
  • Given a low speed WAN link, use Cisco link efficiency mechanisms to improve the bandwidth efficiency of the link
  • Describe the recommended best practices and methods used for end-to-end QoS deployment in the enterprise
