Network Traffic Prioritization

There are many names to describe the process of prioritizing network traffic depending on what model of firewall or router you use. Bandwidth Management (BWM), Traffic Shaping, Quality of Service (QoS) are a few. Below you'll find the steps to enable those functions to ensure that your Voice over IP phones have the network priority that they need to maintain a good connection to the Weave communication servers.

This list is always a work in progress, so if you don't see your specific device, or there is no configuration linked below, please contact our customer support department and we may be able to help you enable those settings.
