The term QoS stands for the Quality of Service in a local network. It is a technology which is used in the local area networks to manage the data usage to minimise the packet loss, latency, jitter etc. This technology is used to manage or defining the priority for the usage of the network resources. It can also be used to define limits on the specific data types in a network Therefore this technology is very useful in the local networks. Many of the modern DSL broadband routers now support this technology. Here we will discuss more in relation to this technology. Hence the users must check the article to get these details.
Parameters of Quality of Service
There are various parameters on which the Quality of Service in a local network depends. Some of the parameters are as follows.
- Packet Loss: Here the packet loss situation arises when the routers or switches starts droping the data packets which can result in Jitter in the communication.
- Jitter: It occurs due to congestions in the network resulting in degradation of Voice & Video Quality in Communication.
- Latency: This parameter signifies the time taken by a data packet to reach destination from the source.
- Bandwidth: It can be understood as the maximum limit of data that can be transferred from one point to another. This protocol ensures the priority of the data resources for the various types of works.
How to enable Quality of Service on the Router?
The network admins can only enable this technology. Thus the admins must follow the procedure as given below.
- Connect the device with router & access the admin panel of router or check 10.0.0.138 Admin Login.
- Now go to the internet connection settings.
- Open link to QoS.
- Click on enable & then click on save.
This procedure will help the admins to activate this protocol very easily.
