Like many IP phone companies we install the pepwave routers to provide cellular backup and VPN connections to our two data centers. All non-voice traffic goes out over the WAN. All voice traffic goes over PEPVPN connection on wan/failing to cellular
There are multiple problems with the current available bandwidth management tools:
- You can do QOS by type of traffic, but since the VoIP traffic is going over the VPN it is hidden from the QOS management
- It is not possible to reserve bandwidth for the VPN itself. You can manage QOS for services within the VPN, and outside the VPN, but not between the VPN and other services.
I am requesting a very simple control to reserve specific bandwidth for the vpn itself. i.e. if this location peaks at five calls in progress I only need 500K up/500K down for the VPN. I would like to be able to make a hard reservation of bandwidth for the VPN and leave everything else for all other traffic.
