Quality of Service (QoS) in High-Priority Applications
Technologies such as voice over IP and digital video are accompanied by high expectations for reliability and quality, so networks must treat these services as high priority. Unfortunately, the quality of voice or video may deteriorate as a result of over compression, pack loss on the network, and latency delays.
This white paper explores various hard and soft Quality of Service (QoS) approaches that help you improve data traffic management so that top priority traffic will not be compromised. Read this white paper to understand why QoS is an attractive alternative to aimlessly adding bandwidth to the network and how it can help you do the following:
- Prioritize users, segments, and applications
- Reserve and limit the bandwidth for certain users and applications
- Select the applications that can be stopped
