QoS in Virtual Connect?

Is there a known way, how to implement Quality of Service on VC Flex-10 FW2.32 ?
Eg. if there is a voice Network (VLAN) also running through a shared uplink set and there should be implemented QoS on that VLAN?
Or is only way to put Voice VLAN on dedicated Uplink in tunnel mode and trust Virtual connects speed?
Thanks for tips

hi Peter,

QoS can only be implemented on the host in this case, not on the VC. They plan to make this feature available in the future.

Check page 14 of this guide for more details:

good luck, we appreciate points if the answers help!

Thanks for reply!
But that FAQ I read before I wrote the question.
Are there any known roadmaps in which version QoS will be supported?
Customers are asking and they are wishing to know when features will be implemented.
In the meantime the only way is to trust the VC speed. And hopefully buffers and queue sizes in VC are large enough to avoid dropped frames.

Sorry Peter, "future" is as detailed an answer as I can provide...

Dedicated uplinks and/or enabling QoS on the first upstream switch port seem like reasonable solutions though.
