Cisco Router - Priority for VOIP traffic / Bandwidth reservation que

Hi All

We have the following senario

Cisco 1721K9 Router (off board VPN)

We will have 3 Fast ethernet interfaces

Interface 1 - WAN Connection to the Internet (3 x VPN connections to other sites - low traffic from 2 of those)
Interface 2 - Internal VOIP network
Interface 3 - Internal Data Network

What is the best method to prioritise voice over data in and out to the ITSP (not over VPN)
Can we reserve a certain amount of bandwidth to be certain we will have enough for a few incoming voice calls no matter what ?

Thanks for your help

You can reserve bandwidth for outbound traffic using a number of different queuing methods. But only your ISP can reserve bandwidth for your inbound traffic- they have to prioritize what they send you.

The easiest way is to flag interface 2 as having higher priority over 3

I a bit tired to write code, but I found you cisco docs that tell you exactly how to do it...to diferent ways actually:

Priority By Interface:

Priority By Protocol:

If you have questions, or want me to write some code, let me know. :)
