The article focuses on ways for Internet service providers to achieve an end-to-end quality of service (QOS). Complete QOS covers four chapters: (1) traffic classification; (2) traffic classification; (3) bandwidth management; and (4) traffic monitoring. QOS over multi-protocol label switching requires multiple vendors (MPLS). To achieve QOS-over-MPLS is a challenging assignment that requires understanding the whole QOS story without skipping any of the four chapters. Although achievable, true end-to-end QOS-over-MPLS demands careful integration and tuning of components from multiple vendors. INSET: Review Of Existing Solutions.
