Prevent Network Congestion with WRED While Using the DiffServ QoS Model

QoS (Quality of Service) is an important mechanism for enterprise-grade information networks. There are multiple strategies for implementing QoS. One of those strategies is called DiffServ. The DiffServ strategy works by the network attempting to reserve capacity at each node in the travel path for packets as they traverse through the network. Despite QoS policies defining traffic requirements, though, the DiffServ model can still experience network congestion if it is not configured properly. One of the ways that network congestion can be avoided while using the DiffServ model is by using the WRED features in Cisco networking equipment.

The DiffServ WRED feature enables WRED to use either the 6-bit differentiated services code point (DSCP) or the IP Precedence setting in IP packets. It uses these to calculate the drop probability for those packets. The DSCP value is comprised of the first 6 bits of the IP type of service. Before enabling WRED in Cisco networking equipment, though, a policy map with the class and bandwidth shape for that class needs to be configured first.
