QoS for VoIP WiFi on the wired side

We are testing some Cisco wifi VoIP phones. Following the recommendations on Chapter 30 for Aruba OS 5.0 I have an SSID for VoIP configured. I could not find any info on best practices for QoS on the wired side connecting the APs and controller to the network.
Question is:
- Do we need QoS on the switch port connecting the AP to the network?
- De we need QoS on the switch port connecting the Controller to the network?

Thanks,

No

The short answer is normally no.

Re: QoS for VoIP WiFi on the wired side

But I guess we should at least trust the DSCP values on the switchports connecting to the controller to retain the QoS labels end to end?
