A basic understanding of IP networks is assumed

Outline and Objectives:

The basic IP protocols are unable to give guarantees or even management of Quality of Service (QoS) of the type required to carry many applications successfully. With the adoption of IP as the end-to-end protocol of NGN, a combination of techniques to augment the basic behaviour of IP is required, both at the IP layer itself, and in the underlying layer 2 technologies.

Who Should Attend:

This course is suitable for anyone working with IP networks or services, and who needs to understand the limitations of IP in delivering QoS, and how these limitations can be overcome.

Course Contents:

  • IP Networks and their QoS Behaviour
  • Transport Protocols and QoS
  • Queuing and Forwarding Techniques in Routers and Switches
  • IP Over Ethernet: 802.1p/q Tagging
  • The Pure IP QoS Approaches: Intserv, Diffserv, Overcapacity
  • Native MPLS QoS: MPLS-TE and DS-TE
  • Integrating IP and MPLS QoS
  • Integrating IP and Carrier Ethernet QoS
  • End-to-End QoS Policy and Enforcement Using COPS, PDP and PEP
  • QoS-aware Applications: IMS Example
