Class Based Queuing

A queuing algorithm used in routers to manage packets with different traffic characteristics. Incoming packets are classified on such variables as the DSCP (Differentiated Services Code Point) in the IP header. Each class of traffic is assigned to a specific FIFO (First In First Out) queue, each of which is guaranteed some portion of the total bandwidth of the router.
