Coverage starts with a review for readers new to voice technologies and continues with in-depth information on implementation, concepts and protocols, call control models available, roadblock and troubleshooting strategies, and QoS issues. The book also expands beyond the curriculum to cover topics such as WRR, AutoQoS on a Catalyst switch, LFI, using MQC to configure classification, marking, LLQ, WRED, policing, and shaping. How does the book differ from the previous edition? It includes updated coverage of voice technologies, IOS version 12.3 updates including AutoQoS, H.323 enhancements, MGCP enhancements, and SIP enhancements, and practical editorial elements like hands-on lab exercises and configuration examples are given greater emphasis.
