Is Orbi dynamic QoS able to prioritize VoIP packets? (ORBI RBK852)

Hi everybody,

 

I was wondering if it is possible to connect an ATA VoIP or a VoIP phone like Gigaset C530A to the Orbi (RKB852 - Router Mode) in order to be able to use VoIP. In addition I would like to know if there is the possibility to priorize the VoIP system in order to have the best quality as possibile during phone calls. Furthermore, does Orbi dynamic QoS recognize and prioritize VoIP packets itself?

 

Thank you

 

Sorry for my English but I'm Italian.

I upload GB files on fridays for work and not noticed any issues with having two VPNs running, Teams video calls and the uloads all going at the same time. So I Think the connection and RBR does well to handle all the traffic. 

 

Something you can try out and see if it works for you. I beleive you'll be fine. 

 

I'm on DOCSIS 3.1

Actually I get 950mbit/s in download and 170mbit/s in upload. I should get 200mbit/s in upload but the ISP router reserves almost 20mbit/s for VoIP. The ISP router prioritizes the voice VLAN and VoIP packets. 

 

I think I have enough bandwidth but I'm afraid that uploading files during phone calls would reduce their quality.

 

I really want to get rid of the ISP router and using the Orbi as router would be the best solution for me (since it won't make me buy another router).

Let’s see if anyone knows more. An IT expert told me that the Orbi could do a great job recognizing and prioritizing VoIP or that it couldn't. He simply didn't know how Orbi works with QoS. 

 

P.S do you have a fiber or a DOCSIS connection?

It should connect. You might try it first and see how it goes. Orbi systems have automatic QoS so theres nothing to configure manually.

Hi and thank you for your replying. I'm looking for a confirm because I don't want to buy the gigaset and having issues while calling and uploading files. I really don't know what Orbi priorites with its QoS.

I presume it should however I can't confirm as I don't have that kind of device. I do have a ATT micro cell and works fine with out 3 phones connected to it. 

Whats your ISP speed UP and Down? Voice communications may not need much priority as voice doesn't take up that much band width. Would only be a consideration if your ISPs speeds UP and down are fairly low. I'm on a 1Gb/50Mbps plan here. 2 VPNs all day during work days, no problems here.

Orbi does not mention anything in reqards of QoS. There is also no settings to change this. This means all traffic is equal. So the answer to your question is no.
