Implementing Cisco QOS (QOS)
Length: 4 Days
Price: $2,195.00

This course describes the need for QoS mechanisms in IP networks. It describes the two conceptual QoS models (Integrated Services and Differentiated Services), basic technologies, Classification and Marking, Queuing Mechanisms, Traffic Shaping and Policing, Congestion Avoidance, Link Efficiency, Signaling Mechanisms, MQC, and IP over ATM. The course focuses on the DiffServ model.

You will learn to:
Describe the need for QoS mechanisms in IP networks
Describe the two conceptual QoS models Integrated Services and Differentiated
Describe the building blocks of IP QoS mechanisms available in the Cisco IOS
Describe the mechanisms that can be used to classify and mark IP packets
Describe and configure the queuing mechanisms that can be used on output
Describe the two options for limiting bandwidth available to traffic classes
Configure mechanisms that support traffic shaping and policing
Configure congestion avoidance mechanisms
Describe and configure alternative approaches to handle congested links
Describe the classification properties of the Modular QoS CLI (MQC) that provide a new approach to classification for various QoS mechanisms
Describe Modular QoS CLI (MQC) service policies
Describe the available QoS mechanisms that can be used on ATM interfaces of
Cisco routers.
Describe the available QoS mechanisms that can be used in MPLS-enabled networks

Recommended for:
The course is targeted at pre - and post-sales technical engineers responsible for designing, implementing, and/or troubleshooting QoS on a network. Also, those individuals that are working toward their CCIP certification.

The student should possess work experience and configuration skills for Cisco routers and LAN switches. These skills are best demonstrated through the Cisco career certification Cisco Certified Networking Associate (CCNA). Previous exposure to internal routing protocols and LAN/WAN technologies allows the student to fully benefit from the topics discussed in various parts of the curriculum.

Prerequisite courses are Interconnecting Cisco Network Devices (ICND) and Building Scalable Cisco Internetworks (BSCI) course.
