This page allows you to set differentiated services code point (DSCP) values for audio, video, content, and signaling coming from your VidyoDesktop and VidyoRoom endpoints to your VidyoRouter. Audio, video, content data, and signaling coming from your VidyoDesktop and VidyoRoom endpoints are assigned corresponding values that you set on this screen.
With these specified values assigned to media types coming from your VidyoDesktop and VidyoRoom endpoints, you can then configure your network router or switch to prioritize the packets as desired.
For VidyoDesktop, QoS tagging is currently only supported on Windows platforms. The following operating systems restrict QoS value tagging in the following manner:
When VidyoDesktop is running as a standard user (not Administrative), the only DSCP values that may be tagged are 0, 8, 40, and 56.
When VidyoDesktop is running as a user with Administrative permissions, all DSCP values (0 – 63) may be tagged.
You may tag packets as a non-Administrative user, if desired, using Windows Group Policy settings. Sites may be able to establish domain policy rules implementing these settings.
For more information about Policy-based Quality of Service (QoS), refer to the following Microsoft TechNet article: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd919203%28WS.10%29.aspx.
When VidyoDesktop is running as either a standard user or a user with Administrative permissions, the only DSCP values that may be tagged are 0, 8, 40, and 56.
You can also configure the media port range and enable use of the VidyProxy on the Endpoint Network Settings page.
To configure quality of service values for endpoints on your tenant:
- Log in to the Admin Portal using your Admin account.
For more information, see Logging in to the Tenant Admin Portal.
The Users page displays by default.
- Click the Settings tab.
The License page displays by default.
- Click Endpoint Network Settings on the left menu.
The Endpoint Network Settings page displays.
- Enter DSCP values for Video, Audio, Content, and Signaling.
Values provided must be decimals from 0 to 63. The values default to 0.
- Enter the appropriate values in the fields in the Media Port Range section.
- Click Save.
A Confirmation pop-up displays.
- Click Yes.
A message displays stating that all endpoints using your tenant must sign in to the system again before values are tagged to corresponding media packets based on your saved changes.
