Implementing Cisco Quality of Service QOS v2.1

5 days


The Implementing Cisco Quality of Service (QOS) v2.1 course provides students with in-depth knowledge of IP QoS requirements, conceptual models using Differentiated Services (DiffServ), Integrated Services (IntServ) and Best Effort (over provisioning), and the implementation of IP QoS on Cisco IOS switch and router platforms.


Each participant will leave with a recognised certificate

Course Outline

  • The curriculum covers the theory of IP QoS, design issues, and configuration of various QoS mechanisms to facilitate the creation of effective administrative policies providing QoS. Case studies and lab exercises included in the course help students to apply the concepts mastered in individual modules to real-life scenarios.
  • The course also gives students design and usage rules for various advanced IP QoS features and the integration of IP QoS with underlying Layer 2 QoS mechanisms, allowing them to design and implement efficient, optimized, and trouble-free multi-service networks
  • After completing this course, the student should be able to:
  • Given a converged network, explain the need to implement Quality of Service (QoS) and explain methods for implementing and managing QoS
  • Given a converged network, identify and describe different models used for ensuring QoS in a network and explain key IP QoS mechanisms used to implement the models
  • Given a converged network, explain the use of MQC and AutoQoS to implement QoS on the network
  • Given a converged network and a policy defining QoS requirements, successfully classify and mark network traffic to implement the policy
  • Given a congested network, use Cisco QoS queuing mechanisms to manage network congestion
  • Given a converged network, use Cisco QoS congestion avoidance mechanisms to reduce the effects of congestion on the network
  • Given a network, use Cisco QoS traffic policing and traffic shaping mechanisms to effectively limit the rate of network traffic

Thinking about Onsite?

If you need training for 3 or more people, you should ask us about onsite training. Putting aside the obvious location benefit, content can be customised to better meet your business objectives and more can be covered than in a public classroom. It's a cost effective option.

Submit an enquiry from any page on this site, and let us know you are interested in the requirements box, or simply mention it when we contact you.
