QoS configuration in "Lan Base" image

Level 1
Level 1

Hi community


It was a while since I worked with Cisco hardware. I bough a WS-C2960CX-8PC-L for use at home. I have an agreement with my provider to terminate my own 1/1 Gbit fiber directly into my equipment. I have untagged internet coming as well as TV which is VLAN tagged. Everything is set up and works perfect.


After some reading I can see Cisco IOS is tricky with QoS as QoS has so many different ways regarding configuration. And after some more reading it seems QoS is configured different in different IOS images as well (i.e Lan base vs IP base). I cannot do a simple task as give priority to my TV VLAN. This as it is not a supported config to give priority to VLANs in the IOS "LAN Base" image. And there is no "IP Base"image available to my switch. 


One TV box is sitting directly into an ethernet port in the switch (port prio would solve that). The other TV boxes are connected over a few Aruba IAP 225 APs as the TV VLAN is extended into the APs (must be priority of multicast, MACs or anything orher than ports)


The question is... How do I accomplish to give priority to a VLAN in the switch running "LAN Base"? Or any other suggestion to accomplish this is very much appreciated...


Tnx in advance

Hi @pos42

I am attaching a doc to help you. You need to enable the QoS at interface level.

But keep in mind that QoS is supposed to be end to end so that any tag will be ignored and best effort will be applied on the nest Service Provider devices.
