Extending IP QOS to ATM network

Extending IP QOS to ATM network

Extending IP QOS to ATM network

Hello All,

As a newly hired engineer I have been tasked with extending our QOS across our private ATM network comprised of Cisco 8510 MSR. I am having trouble finding any info on QOS over the ATM network. Lots of generic documents say it is coming, or is now available but very limited discussion on configuration. Has anyone here implemented QOS on the ATM switching?

I have seen some guides that tell how to implement QOS at the edge of the network for inboiund or outbound traffic, (At subinterface level for a PVC) but I am not sure how to either;
1. Extend this feature from a 6509 where it can be configured, into the ATM switch so the switch will honor DSCP values or map them to ATM COS.
2. Configure any kind of QOS on an link that is using tag-switching or is an SVC.

Any help, sample configs, or just a general overview from someone who has done it or seen it done would be sincerely appreciated.
