The Definitive Guide
- Vinod Joseph, Juniper, UK
- Brett Chapman, Cisco Systems
Deploying QoS for IP Next Generation Networks: The Definitive Guide provides network architects and planners with insight into the various aspects that drive QoS deployment for the various network types. It serves as a single source of reference for businesses that plan to deploy a QoS framework for voice, video, mobility and data applications creating a converged infrastructure. It further provides detailed design and implementation details for various service deployments across the various Cisco platforms such as the CRS-1, 12000, 7600 & 7200 series routers that are widely deployed in most Carrier Networks.
The book covers architectural and implementation specific information plus recommendations for almost all the popular line cards across the various hardware platforms widely used in the market. It also addresses QoS architecture and deployment on the Cisco CRS-1 platform and is considered as a unique selling point of this book.
In short the books serve as an "On the Job Manual" which can also be used as a study guide for Cisco specialist certification programs (CCNA, CCIP, CCIE)
This book will includes detailed illustration and configurations. In addition, it provides detailed case studies along with platform specific tests and measurement results. A link to a detailed tutorial on QoS metrics and associated test results will be available at the book's companion website in order to ensure that the reader is able to understand QoS functionality from a deployment standpoint.
Primary Audience: Network Designers, Architects, Technical Leads, and Business Managers involved in designing and deploying a QoS framework for Quad play services (Voice, Data, Video, Mobility). Secondary Audience: Study guide for those pursuing Cisco Career Certification in the areas of Routing & Switching, Service Provider, and Voice (CCNA, CCIP, CCIE). [Note: This book is not a certification exam preparation guide but it does go into great detail about the latest Cisco hardware and software platforms related to QoS implementation and therefore will be of interest to those who are planning to take or who have taken the certification exam.]
