QoS Lab

I will be taking the Implementing QoS 642-642 exam in a couple of days from now and wanted to assemble an easy topology and integrate some of the QoS tools. I’ll take it slow as it’s the first time QoS and make it interesting at the same time.

This scenario proposes a Headquaters office and a Branch office. Phones have been getting regstered at the HQ CME (R1) just fine. However there are concerns for the QoS across the WAN since this is the first time IP phones are deployed at the BR. HTTP, HTTPS, FTP traffic to the HQ servers will compete for bandwidth with VoIP. Shapping, policying, LLQ, Fragmentation, RTP header compressiong, NBAR, will be deployed on this LAB.
