This book discusses the theory of Quality of Service (QoS) mechanisms in packet networks and shows how to apply them in practiceQOS-Enabled Networks: Tools and Foundations provide s an understanding of the theory of QOS mechanisms in packet networks and how to apply them in practice. It explain s QOS management features found in modern routers used by Internet Service Providers ( ISP) and large companies. The goal of this book is to provide the background and tools to help network managers and engineers configure production networks for providing services with quality of service (QOS) guarantees. The authors underline the bookrs"s focus on providing an understanding of network behavior…
