QOS design issue in WAN Aggregation Router


                   Hi there, we are planning to deployment voice and we have multiple sites connected to the datacenter via BGP with WAN carrier's cloud. Since there is no separate subinterface or tunnel connecte to each site. how can I apply LLQ, to porvide multiple priority queue for separat Voice traffic to each sites?  I know that there is only one direction one priority queue allowed in cisco router. is any other way to go around?  thanks in advance. Roy

Does your WAN provider support egress QoS from their cloud?

If they do, you configure QoS policies on your devices as they egress your device toward the WAN cloud, and you insure the ToS markings conform with the provider's QoS cloud policies. (For example, your policy might insure your VoIP obtains LLQ if there's congestion on the interface to the provider's cloud, and the provider insures packets marked with, perhaps DSCP EF, obtain LLQ throughout their cloud, especially upon cloud egress [a common bottleneck].)

If they do not, your device QoS policies can shape for destination's bandwidth.  This works fairly well if your traffic flows are logically hub and spoke not multipoint.  If traffic flows are multipoint, in theory, you might shape everywhere, and manually allocate bandwidth allocations, but such an implementation "wastes" bandwidth and is very difficult to manage for more than a few sites.  (NB: manual allocation with shaping means if a site has 5 Mbps, you would need to insure the aggregation of all other sites that might send traffic to the site doesn't exceed 5 Mbps.  You can proportion the 5 Mbps, between all the other sites, anyway you think you need.)
