Home QoS Cisco QoS Configuration Applying LFI on Multilink PPP for Real-Time Traffic(VOIP)

LFI stands for Link Fragmentation and interleaving is not of QoS mechanism. However, it is help for real-time traffic such as VOIP on small size of link. LFI on Multilink PPP allows large packets to be fragmented into a small size to fit a minimum delay requirement for real-time traffic. Also, interleaving function provides a special transmit queue for the high priority traffic can be sent earlier than others.

1. Configuring LFI on Multilink PPP

Router-LFI-1#conf t
Router-LFI-1(config)# interface multilink 1
Router-LFI-1(config-if)# ppp multilink fragment delay 10 ; 10ms for VOIP delay requirement
Router-LFI-1(config-if)# ppp multilink interleave
Router-LFI-1(config-if)# ip address 1.1.1.1 255.255.255.0
Router-LFI-1(config-if)# bandwidth 1536 ; Specify for auto fragmentation calculation
Router-LFI-1(config-if)# ppp multilink endpoint hostname

Router-LFI-1(config-if)# interface serial1/0
Router-LFI-1(config-if)# encapsulation ppp
Router-LFI-1(config-if)# ppp multilink group 1

 

 

interface Multilink1
 bandwidth 1536
 ip address 1.1.1.1 255.255.255.0
 ppp multilink
 ppp multilink fragment delay 10
 ppp multilink interleave
 ppp multilink group 1
end
 

interface Serial1/0
 no ip address
 encapsulation ppp
 serial restart-delay 0
 ppp multilink
 ppp multilink group 1
end
