So we are having issues (albeit intermittently) with our voip phones poor quality.  There are times where the calls are quiet, distant, echoey and sometime jittery.
ISP says nothing wrong.
SIP provider says all ok.

Next thing i would like to change is settings on the switch, based on ping tests to the voice and data vlans on the hp poe 2910al switch averaging 4ms, but at times peaking at c150.
My networking is a little limited...

WOuld a rule on the l3 switch help?  Currently has differential setup.
See what i'm thinking attached.

Yes, you need it. If QoS is not set first thing to suffer is telephony since IP voice traffic is sensitive to jitter and delay.
Voice packets must be delivered in the most timely fashion possible, with little jitter, little loss, and little delay.

We have DCSP set up on our switches as type 'differential services' only.  No network prioritisation rules in place for types of service i.e. application port, device, protocol vlan or dscp mapping.

I guess we need to create a rule and specifiy voice or data vlan high or low priority?

Thanks
