Learn how traffic management can improve your quality of service
Designing and implementing a port scheduling solution for a packet switch
Traffic Management functions of shaping, scheduling, and policing, impact the quality of service, rate limiting, and relative flow priority of important network functions. Correct implementation of these functions has a major impact on the quality of service provided by the network and on the overall traffic engineering within the network. Although execution of traffic management functionality is done by the switching device, appropriate traffic management for the network and the networking applications requires substantial high-level design and proper programming of the switching device.
This white paper, the first of three white papers covering traffic management, focuses on scheduling, provides an overview of the three functions to put the scheduling function in context.
