QoS Design for Wireless LANs
This session will focus on end-to-end QoS design for Wireless LANs. First, we will explore the underlying PHY and MAC layer principles of WLAN QoS, including IEEE 802.11e and WMM. Next, we will look at a systematic approach to designing end-to-end QoS across the WLAN, including the little-known impact CAPWAP QoS has on the underlying IP network. This session will include a discussion how Cisco Wireless LAN controllers can be configured to support differentiated levels of service for mixed use WLANs that use a variety of multimedia applications. This will involve a discussion of QoS tools such as per-SSID and per-user session controls, as well as wireless-based Application Visibility and Control (AVC). We will examine in detail how a systematic design approach can deliver a best-in-class user experience for UC applications like Microsoft Lync and Cisco Jabber.
