Implementing Practical WAN Quality of Service

Version 1

    Intel depends on its WAN circuits to stay efficient and competitive.  To provide global users with smooth application performance over the WAN, Intel IT researched and implemented a Quality of Service capability that controls flow and prioritizes data handling to improve overall performance and prepare for Voice over IP (VoIP).  This white paper shares the extensive lab testing and pilot production deployment to understand the QoS mechanisms and implement a manageable solution.
