learning objectives Extend the theory of communication networks (as provided in course 5JJ90) towards Quality of Service (QoS) in Multi-Service Data Networks. With a sound knowledge of QoS principles and approaches students should be capable to make proper architectural design decisions for QoS-capable networks. A brief introduction into the tools for network performance analysis should facilitate students to deal with simple network dimensioning problems
contents After a brief summary of IP networks, QoS basics will be discussed in terms of definitions of QoS, typical QoS requirements of application classes, and procedures and mechanisms for QoS provision, e.g. scheduling, buffer management, routing. The Integrated Services and Differentiated Services concepts will be introduced as frameworks for QoS in small and large scale IP networks. Then the particular QoS mechanisms for traffic characterisation as well as for scheduling and queuing will be presented. Finally, appropriate tools for network performance analysis will be introduced including a short excursion int network calculus using Min-Plus algebra.
