    DSCP-to-CoS Mapping

    jeff New Member

      - The default DSCP-to-CoS mapping for CoS 5 is DSCP 40

       

      - My VoIP traffic is marked with DSCP EF (46), if I want DSCP EF mapped to COS 5, I will need to change the DSCP-to-CoS Mapping from 40 to 46 correct?

       

      - The traffic that is tagged with a COS 5, will that traffic retain the COS 5 between Ethernet switches.

          Jeff:

           

          Thank you for asking this question in the support community.  I will try to answer your questions as best as I can.  Also, please review this guide for additional information about Ethernet Switch QoS Configuration.

           

          CoS values can be determined based on the packet’s DSCP value (if DSCP-to-CoS mapping is enabled using the qos dscp-cos command). If DSCP-to-CoS mapping is enabled, CoS values are altered when specified DSCP values are detected on inbound traffic.  On most of the switching platforms DSCP-to-CoS mapping is disabled by default.  However, when DSCP-to-CoS mapping is enabled, then by default the mapping is shown in the table below:

           

          DSCP08162432404856
          CoS01234567

           

          If you want DSCP 46 to be mapped to a CoS of 5, then you will need the following commands:

           

          (config)# qos dscp-cos

          (config)# qos dscp-cos 46 to 5

           

          When the CoS is tagged with a value of 5, that value will be retained throughout the switching network--as long as the other switches are configured to trust CoS values.

           

          I hope that makes sense, but please do not hesitate to reply with any additional questions or information.  I will be happy to help in any way I can.
