How to use QOS to prioritize bandwidth.

 

      

 

Skip to comments.

Quality of Service (QoS) provides a way to control how available bandwidth is allocated. QoS should be applied in cases where you want to divide available bandwidth between competing requirements. 

How to allot maximum bandwidth to a single device:

  1. Log into your BUC appliance at http://192.168.10.1
  2. Go to Firewall > QOS (Upload)
    • Enable QOS
    • Under Add New Classification Rule:
      • Check Source IP
        • Enter the IP of the device(s) you want to prioritize over all others
        • How to find the IP
      • Set Service Class To: Fast
    • Add Rule
  3. Save Changes
  4. Now go to QoS (Download) and create the same rule.

​See example.

How to prioritize VoIP:

For this example we'll prioritize VoIP traffic over all other traffic. For example if you want your VoIP phone(s) to work correctly while downloading videos and playing XBOX.

How to create a QOS VoIP Rule:

  1. Log into your BUC appliance at http://192.168.10.1
  2. Go to Firewall then QOS
  3. Enable Quality of Service
  4. Create a SIP rule
    • Under Add New Classification Rule check Destination Port(s):
    • Type 5060
    • Set service class to VoIP
  5. Add New Rule
  6. Save Changes
