Traffic Shaping for VoIP (Video)


In this video, you will learn how to configure priority VoIP traffic shaping with your FortiGate. You will give VoIP communications a high traffic priority with a guaranteed bandwidth to ensure Quality of Service.

To achieve high quality real-time voice transmissions, VoIP traffic requires priority over other types of traffic, minimal packet loss, and jitter buffers. You will use a traffic shaper to limit bandwidth consuming services, like FTP, and another shaper to provide a consistent bandwidth for day-to-day email, web, and other traffic. First, you will customize three existing traffic shapers—high priority, medium priority, and low priority—and then create a separate security policy for each service type.

The recipe for this video is available here.
