This paper presents some experiences with class of service (CoS) translation in IP and MPLS based networks. IP provides CoS in the form of eight priority classes that can be used to distinguish between a variety of traffic types. Since most of the layer-2 technologies provide support for strict QoS, an appropriate translation from the coarse grained IP CoS to the fine-grained layer-2 QoS is fundamental to obtaining desired end-to-end throughput. Multiprotocol label switching (MPLS), residing in… CONTINUE READING
