Title: Technology Overview

Technology Overview Quality of Service
  • Quality of service (QoS) measures applications
    performance across a wide area network
  • Class of Service configurations are used to
    improve application performance
  • What jeopardizes applications performance?
  • Jitter
  • Latency
  • Throughput
  • QoS is only needed when congestion is present
  • On the ingress connection from your premises
  • On the egress connection from the network to your
  • Within the network

Qwest iQ Networking QoS- Four Queues
Standardized QoS Across All Access Types
Priority 1 Traffic Priority 2 Traffic Priority 3
Traffic Priority 4 Traffic
MPLS Provider Edge (PE)
  • Customers can segment and prioritize traffic
    based on business needs. Supports time-sensitive
    application through MPLS/IP QoS mechanisms
  • Customer CPE or application is responsible for
    marking and prioritizing IP traffic prior to
    sending it into the MPLS network
  • The prioritization occurs when the egress PE has
    more data to deliver than the customer-subscribed
    bandwidth can handle

Qwest iQ Networking QoS - Templates

Queue IPP Values that go into this Queue
Priority 1 5
Priority 2 4,6,7
Priority 3 2,3
Priority 4 0,1
  • ¹This is the default template
  • ²Queuing option C not available on Frame Relay or
    ATM access (Dedicated or Partner)

Qwest iQ Networking QoS - Queuing Methods
  • Queuing Option A First in, first out (FIFO)
  • Recommended if you dont need to prioritize one
    type of traffic over another
  • Queuing Option B Unlimited P1 bandwidth
  • Recommended only if you have a sophisticated
    understanding of your traffic types and flows and
    the implications of queue starvation that may
  • Queuing Option C P1 low latency
  • Recommended if you are using voice or video, but
    also have a need to conserve a minimum amount of
    bandwidth to other applications. This option
    should be considered the standard option if you
    have voice or video traffic and DIPA local loops
  • Option C is similar to Option B. The difference
    is this option limits the amount of bandwidth the
    P1 queue can consume to the percentage assigned
    to P1
  • Queuing Option D No special P1 queue treatment
  • Recommended for general use if you have Frame
    Relay and/or ATM access, including voice and/or
    video traffic. It is also recommended for use
    with DIPA where P1 should be allowed to burst to
    port speed

Queuing Options A, B and D are available with
Private Port and Enhanced Port, all access types.
Queuing Option C is available with Private Port,
Dedicated IP Access only.
