Skip to Available Dates

Learning Objectives

At course completion students will 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 requirements, classify and mark network traffic to implement the policy
  • Use Cisco QoS 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
  • Given a low speed WAN link, use Cisco link efficiency mechanisms to improve the badwidth efficiency of the link
  • Describe the recommended best practices and methods used for end-to-end QoS deployment in the enterprise
