Quality of Service The network wants low congestion for better performance. The user needs a good quality of service. Show Fig. 5-30 In delay, “Low” means low sensitivity to delay (or jitter), not low delay (or jitter). “High” means high sensitivity to delay (or jitter).

The biggest type distinction is real time vs. non-real time communication. In real time communication, data must arrive by a certain deadline, or it is useless. In non-real time communication, such as file transfer, there is no precise deadline, though shorter transfer time is desirable. QUALITY FACTORS: # cell loss probability # ability to maintain a specified average rate # ability to accept data burst amounts up to some length # average packet delay # packet delay variation

Quality of Service Techniques Overprovisioning - more than enough bandwidth, buffer capacity. Buffering - reduces chance of packet loss, but increases delay. Priorities could be given to real-time traffic. Extra delay to playout can smooth jitter. Traffic shaping - regulate average rate coming from sender while allowing for bursts.
