+==== Full example of QoS for osmo-bsc downlink QoS
+In the below example we will show the full set of configuration required
+for both DSCP and PCP differentiation of downlink Abis traffic by osmo-bsc.
+What we want to achieve in this example is the following configuration:
+.DSCP and PCP assignments for osmo-bsc downlink traffic in this example
+|Traffic |DSCP|PCP
+|A-bis RSL | 56| 7
+|A-bis RTP | 46| 6
+|A-bis OML | 34| 5
+. configure the osmocom program to set the DSCP value
+. configure an egrees QoS map to map from priority to PCP
+.Example Step 1: add related VTY configuration to `osmo-bsc.cfg`
+ ipa ip-dscp oml 34
+ ipa socket-priority oml 5
+ ipa ip-dscp rsl 56
+ ipa socket-priority rsl 7
+.Example Step 2: egress QoS map to map from socket priority to PCP values
+$ sudo ip link set dev eth0.9<1> type vlan egress-qos-map 0:0 5:5 6:6 7:7 <2>
+<1> make sure to specify your specific VLAN interface name here instead of `eth0.9`.
+<2> create a egress QoS map that maps the priority value 1:1 to the PCP. We also include the
+ mapping 6:6 from the osmo-mgw example (see <<userman-osmomgw>>) here.
+NOTE:: The settings of the `ip` command are volatile and only active until
+the next reboot (or the network device or VLAN is removed). Please refer to
+the documentation of your specific Linux distribution in order to find out how
+to make such settings persistent by means of an `ifup` hook whenever the interface
+comes up. For CentOS/RHEL 8 this can e.g. be achieved by means of an `/sbin/ifup-local
+script` (when using `network-scripts` and not NetworkManager). For Debian or Ubuntu,
+this typically involves adding `up` lines to `/etc/network/interfaces` or a `/etc/network/if-up.d`
