Quality of Service (QoS) -
Issues & their Resolution in evolved 3G and Next Generation Networks

Some of your questions that will be answered by this book:


  • Why is it so difficult to achieve and provide QoS in packet-switched networks?
  • Why is sophisticated packet network engineering becoming more and more important
    nowadays and in the future?
  • How do all these QoS-terms like QoS-profile, QoS-attribute and QoS-class or traffic class
    relate to each other?
  • Which QoS-attributes are required in a QoS-Profile?
  • How do VoIP compare to legacy voice services, considering resource consumption and
    requirements? What can we do to optimize our network accordingly?
  • What are the settings of these QoS-attributes to provide suitable performance for different
    service types?
  • How do QoS-related functions like policing, admission control and traffic shaping relate to
    each other?
  • What are the differences between the QoS-architectures DiffServ, IntServ and MPLS and how
    do they operate in detail?
  • Which parameters are used in different layer 1 / layer 2 environments like for instance
    WIMAX- or UTRA-networks to tag certain QoS-levels?
  • How do these layer 1 / layer 2 environments interact with other protocols that need to
    simultaneously operate e.g. for session setup or user data transfer?
  • How does an end-to-end scenario look with full QoS-provisioning?
  • Is it possible that a DSL-modem / WLAN-router at home provides QoS? If yes, how does this

Who should acquire this book?

  • The book is mainly targeted at network operator staff who need to upgrade today’s networks to become QoS-aware.
  • However, the book is also a must for everybody on the vendor side who involved in one section of the overall network to design QoS-aware equipment.
