To apply QoS parameters effectively, identify application traffic types, bandwidth requirements, and sensitivity to latency or packet loss. With these requirements known, you can now prioritize specific application services using QoS management and queuing tools, classify traffic and direct flow as desired. Set QoS parameters using user experience, network quality, and application requirements to help eliminate bottlenecks of high-priority applications and their data.
Technologies like SDN improve network quality of service because the architecture supports various routing algorithms rather than the typical "open shortest path first" approach. Simple self-service tools increase scalability, ease of use, QoS, and security policy management, reducing the time required to manage your network.
Banks are an excellent example of an environment where user experience is critical and affected by network quality of service. In this case, view each banking branch as an edge computing “node.” Each node, or banking branch, supports various stakeholder applications, including business and consumer customers. In this setting, SDN with Internet Dedicated Services and wireless backup provides an always-on, dedicated connection with QoS to prioritize critical applications, robust service-level agreements, and optimized speeds.
