The official self-study test preparation guide for the Cisco DQOS 9E0-601 and QOS 642-641 exams

This official study guide helps you master all the topics on the DQOS exam, including:

  • QoS concepts, tools, and architectures
  • Classification and marking concepts and tools
  • Queuing in Cisco routers and configuration of queuing tools
  • Traffic policing and shaping in Cisco routers
  • Configuration of congestion avoidance tools
  • Configuration of link-efficiency tools
  • Call admission control (CAC) tools for voice and video connections
  • Cisco QoS management tools
  • QoS design processes
  • QoS on LAN switches

The Cisco IP Telephony Support, Design, and Operations Specialist focused certifications validate proficiency in designing, installing, and supporting a multiservice network solution. A solid understanding of quality-of-service (QoS) features and implementation is essential for all of the Cisco IP Telephony focused certifications and is also a core component of the CCIP(tm) certification.

Cisco DQOS Exam Certification Guide is a best-of-breed Cisco(r) exam study guide that focuses specifically on the objectives for the DQOS exam. Senior instructor and best-selling author Wendell Odom and senior Cisco AVVID consultant Michael Cavanaugh share preparation hints and test-taking tips, helping you identify areas of weakness and improve your QoS knowledge. Material is presented in a concise manner, focusing on increasing your understanding and retention of exam topics.

Cisco DQOS Exam Certification Guide presents you with an organized test preparation routine through the use of proven series elements and techniques. "Do I Know This Already?" quizzes open each chapter and allow you to decide how much time you need to spend on each section. Exam topic lists and Foundation Summary tables make referencing easy and give you a quick refresher whenever you need it. Challenging chapter-ending review questions help you assess your knowledge and reinforce key concepts. The companion CD-ROM contains a powerful testing engine that allows you to focus on individual topic areas or take complete, timed exams that help you prepare for the QoS component of either the IP Telephony or CCIP certifications. The assessment engine also tracks your performance and provides feedback on a module-by-module basis, presenting question-by-question remediation to the text. Well-regarded for its level of detail, assessment features, and challenging review questions and exercises, this book helps you master the concepts and techniques that will enable you to succeed on the exam the first time.
