Medium Priority

Regarding voice over ip, do I need to setup qos on my internal network the same as I would do on the WAN routers? I currently have a voice VLAN configured.

interface Vlan212
 description VoIP
 ip address
 ip helper-address

What else do I need to do or am I ok from an internal network perspective?

I would use the same QOS settings end to end to assure the proper priority is appled enterprise wide.

You likely won't need a ton of QoS on your LAN unless you have a lot of unequal links. QoS for voice is usually a must at the WAN edge, but not really within a small to medium LAN.

all LAN ports are 100Mbps. I have a 4Gbps etherchannel between my core switch and distribution switch.

With those speeds you shouldn't have issues with congestion locally. There could be exceptions if you're running some very high bandwidth applications, but on a normal network it shouldn't be an issue.
