Networking Chapter 6 of Cisco IP Telephony Flash Cards and Exam Practice Pack by Kevin Wallace describes Weighted Random Early Detection (WRED). You'll become familiar with the inner workings of the industry-standard Random Early Detection (RED) approach, in addition to the configuration of WRED. Even though WRED can be configured from interface-configuration mode or as part of a Modular Quality of Service Command-Line Interface (MQC) configuration, these flash cards focus specifically on WRED's MQC implementation. Finally, you need to recall the characteristics and configuration of the Explicit Congestion Notification (ECN) mechanism.
