With the rapid development of network applications and the advent of P2P and VoIP applications, the traffic patterns in networks have changed dramatically. The traditional best-effect service model cannot meet the service quality requirements of critical applications and key users. QoS is designed to provide differentiated services to different applications, such as providing dedicated bandwidth, low packet loss, low delay, and low jitter. Centralized QoS management is required for guaranteeing end-to-end QoS.
QoS Manager (QoSM) is an IMC-based, end-to-end QoS management solution that uses the industry-standard SOA architecture. QoSM provides a GUI for you to define, deploy, monitor, and optimize QoS for routers, switches, and WLAN devices.
QoSM at a glance
QoSM is an important component in IMC. IMC uses a distributed, cross-platform, and open architecture where different components run. IMC provides management, monitoring, and report functions for the components. With QoSM, you can use a GUI for configuring QoS, simplifying configuration and shielding the configuration differences among different devices.
After QoS configuration is deployed, you can use the SLA tool to obtain delay, jitter, and packet loss data and output graphical reports.
On the open architecture, QoSM can seamlessly integrate with other IMC components, such as ACL management, Network Traffic Analyzer (NTA), and Intelligent Configuration Center (iCC).
