I have tried to go through existing GTAC KBs and HUB entries, as well as config guides ~ I am not quite sure that the information and my goals are matching properly.

The objective is simple - create a QoS policy that would prioritise all voice traffic in the network over all switches .
Data vlan = 1
Voice vlan = 2
This is what I have enabled on the EOS switches:
set lldp port status both ge.*.*
set lldp port tx-tlv all ge.*.*
set lldp port trap enable
set lldp port med-trap enable
set lldp port network-policy voice state enable tag tagged vid 2 dscp 46 cos 6 ge.*.*
set lldp port network-policy voice-signaling state enable tag tagged vid 2 dscp 44 cos 5 ge.*.*
As I understand it - based on reference 3 and 5, I am now sending the LLDP-MED DSCP and CoS values to the phones in the network - this is working.
My question is, should I then configure a policy (ref. 1 & 2) to ensure that the phones are prioritized over the network or is this already accomplished with the LLDP policy ?
As always, I appreciate any advice,
