I have a simple switched network containing only Layer 2. The switch is a good commercial product. I use only 8 ports. The traffic offered is 4 Mbps for VoIP while all other data gets 1 Mbps (with some control traffic).[o:p][/o:p]
Out of these two configs, 100BASE-TX (full) or 10BASE-T (half-duplex), do I need Layer 2 QoS for each configuration? Is there a general rule of thumb to decide when QoS is required for my network?[o:p][/o:p]
