Course description and objectives
This course introduces architectures and mechanisms to support Quality of Services in packet switched networks. It will start with an overview of the current Internet protocols. It will then present the overall architecture to support QoS over an IP network. After that, mechanisms to achieve predictable per-hop behavior, including traffic classification, queuing methods, and scheduling algorithms, will be introduced. The course will then focus on the challenges and mechanisms for end--to--end QoS provision. Three emerging service models, Integrated Services (IntServ), Differentiated Services (DiffServ), and MultiProtocol Label Switching (MPLS), will be detailed. The signaling protocol to support QoS, Resource reSerVation Protocol (RSVP), will be presented. The relation between IP QoS and traffic engineering will be discussed. The impact of different link technologies on QoS provision will be examined.
In this course, you are expected to:
