A general survey of how wide area networks are being deployed to provide quality of service (QOS) to business customers. QOS implementation in a variety of environments is discussed and the prioritization of data traffic using QOS capable devices is explored. Telecommunications consultant Black assumes a background in voice and data communication, Frame Relay, ATM networks, and the Internet protocol suite.show more
