Cisco recommends the use of MQC and AutoQoS VoIP when deploying voice over the LAN, and AutoQoS Enterprise on router WAN interfaces.

While MQC is much easier to use than CLI, AutoQoS VoIP and AutoQoS Enterprise can simplify the configuration of QoS. As a result, you can accomplish the fastest implementation with AutoQoS.

MQC offers excellent modularity and the ability to fine-tune complex networks. AutoQoS offers the fastest way to implement QoS, but has limited fine-tuning capabilities. When an AutoQoS configuration has been generated, you must use CLI commands to fine-tune an AutoQoS configuration if necessary. (On most networks, fine-tuning will not be necessary for AutoQoS.)
