I am trying to see if we are doing QoS to best practices. We use Avaya phones, which tag the traffic themselves. On our Cisco switches, I have trust dscp on every switchport. Is this correct? ( I used the auto voip command as well)

The router is matching on dscp ef and dscp af, but I don't think we need to match on af according to Cisco. Can someone look at the code and let me know if we should be doing something different?

Thank you

ps: All our voice traffic is on subnet. Thats why the ACL is matching on it
