(Original Workshop - January 9, 2013)
A communications network forms the backbone of any successful organization, and quality of service (QoS) is the secret to managing the delay, jitter, bandwidth and packet loss parameters on a network. Different switch models, IOS versions, even other vendors can add a layer of complexity. Figuring out how to manage it all is a common goal of networking engineers.
Join TechWiseTV's Jimmy Ray Purser as he shares some of his tips and tricks for QoS design. This is not a basic intro to QoS, this session deals with the battle tested configs used at customer sites today. The workshop will focus on access (2900-3750) and distribution (4500) switches and on the venerable 6500 at the core. Plus, Jimmy Ray will share a few of his famous "oops” stories.
Video use is growing much faster than bandwidth or new video compression techniques. We have to do something to keep pace, and that something is QoS.
