Why study this course

Implementing Cisco Quality of Service (QOS) v2.5 provides learners with in-depth knowledge of QoS requirements, conceptual models such as best effort, IntServ, and DiffServ, and the implementation of QoS on Cisco platforms. The curriculum covers the theory of QoS, design issues, and configuration of various QoS mechanisms to facilitate the creation of effective administrative policies providing QoS.

Case studies and lab exercises included in the course help learners to apply the concepts from the individual modules to real-life scenarios. The course also gives learners design and usage rule for advanced QoS features. This gives the learners the opportunity to design and implement efficient, optimal, and trouble-free multiservice networks.

Digital courseware: Cisco provides students with electronic courseware for this course. Students who have a confirmed booking will be sent an email prior to the course start date, with a link to create an account via before they attend their first day of class. Please note that any electronic courseware or labs will not be available (visible) until the first day of the class.
