Video QoS on PC6248 and PC5548

Hi

Maybe a stupid question but here it goes..

I have a 6248 with 4 vlans. 3 vlans are for regular data traffic and one vlan for video traffic. The three vlans for data are routable with IP interfaces so they talk to each other. The vlan for video is isolated and only a video communication system goes here.

My question is since the only traffic flowing in this vlan is the video traffic, do I need to configure QoS on this vlan? Users are experiencing really poor video quality with a lot of packet drops. In that case how do I apply QoS  on that vlan.

The 6248 is trunked with a 5548 where the video equipment is attached.

If the video vlan shares links with data vlans, it's a good idea to set up QoS.
The exact setup would depend on your video devices, but a possible option is:
- enable global CoS on both switches at QoS/CoS Global/CoS Settings
  - CoS: enable
  - Trust: COS (802.1p)
- set a default priority on the 5548 on the ports connecting to video devices at QoS/CoS Global/Interface settings

If you know that the video devices mark their traffic with DSCP, that would be better than trusting COS/802.1p, if possible.

Hi thanks for the reply.
Do you have some sample config for the PC6248?

On the 6248, I think you are good with a simple
qos trust cos

Open in new window

if you do the COS marking on the 5548.

Any info regarding QoS handling from the manual of the video gear would be helpful.
If we know it marks traffic with DSCP, then life is simple, as we don't even have to mark on the 5548.
