The competencies of network connectivity is determined by means of its capacities to comply equally with diverse technologies, be it IP-Routed Networks, WAN, LAN, Ethernet and 802.1 networks or anything else. This competency is referred as Quality of Service (QoS). Now QoS can be assessed by number of ways— such as jitter in the line, data loss, latencies, unknown noise and many such factors. The QoS technologies are incorporated by VoIPs and ISPs to reduce the factors and improve the quality of the network.
So how do you think this technology works, and what are its priorities to get the traffic flow right? And what to expect from it? Here is a quick guide about it.
The Quality of Service is set of tools or protocols that can manage things like packet loss, and fix jitters, thus reducing delay for sensitive data transmission. The role of the QoS is to build a more favorable traffic, based on importance of data, ahead of network gaming and such trivial activity. Though the QoS won’t bar the network gaming once and for all, but it can set the priorities right for better, but it will speed up the process for the more prioritized data.
So how do the QoS tools differentiate between prioritized and gaming data? Its factors like “Class of Service (CoS) or Differentiated Services Code Point (DSCP) and many other technical assessments, that help determine the category of the data.
So here is the technological Hebrew deciphered: the QoS system can sensor the bulk of media, like text, video and audio based on the character of the data, be it like calling, video streaming or both along with textual content sharing.
Though local ISP networks are answerable about the QoS, the primary application of QoS is more relevant for VoIPs, private networks and/or Corporate LANs. This is because, while ISPs supplying private residences or small areas, have a limited number of people to attend, whereas, in case of Corporate or Campus LANs, or those that serve to an expansive traffic tend to cater to a more widespread usage, and often over usage or misusage so to create diverse unaccounted reasons for network latency and other fallouts, that requires an advanced system to identify them and fix them.
Having sufficient bandwidth is the way to have better quality for VoIP. As categorizing and prioritizing sensitive data streams is now possible, the next step is to use this information to set up the QoS policies, this step is called “queuing”. In the queuing process, your ISP tags the policies into the majority of network bandwidth. With a help of the routing device, the packets of data, can now be moved forward the queue and transmitted ASAP.
