Cisco Medianet Quality of Service Design Guide for Enterprises

January 21, 2011

This document provides an overview of quality-of-service (QoS) tools and design recommendations relating to enterprise medianet architecture. It includes high-level answers to the following questions:

  • Why is Cisco providing new QoS design guidance at this time?
  • What is Cisco's QoS tool set?
  • How can QoS be optimally deployed for enterprise medianets?

QoS has proven to be a foundational network infrastructure technology required to support the transparent convergence of voice, video, and data networks. Furthermore, QoS has been proven to complement and strengthen the overall security posture of a network.

However, business needs continue to evolve and expand, and as such, place new demands on QoS technologies and designs. This design guide examines current QoS demands and requirements within an enterprise medianet, and presents strategic design recommendations to address these needs.
