Prerequisites

Completion of Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices (ICND) or Cisco Certified Networking Associate (CCNA). The Configuring BGP on Cisco Routers course (BGP) or equivalent is recommended because some BGP background is assumed for the QoS course.

Course Objectives

Upon completing this course, you will be able to meet these objectives:

  • You will be able to identify, describe, and correctly implement the appropriate QoS mechanisms required to create an effective administrative policy providing QoS

Course Content

Implementing Cisco Quality of Service (QOS) v2.5 provides learners with in-depth knowledge of QoS requirements, conceptual models such as best effort, IntServ, and DiffServ, and the implementation of QoS on Cisco platforms. The curriculum covers the theory of 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 learners to apply the concepts from the individual modules to real-life scenarios. The course also gives learners design and usage rule for advanced QoS features. This gives the learners the opportunity to design and implement efficient, optimal, and trouble-free multiservice networks.
