QoS Common Objects

QoS (Quality of Service) is the prioritizing of different types of traffic to optimize traffic forwarding through a network. In a classifier map, you can map traffic to Extreme Networks QoS classes by service type, by specific MAC OUIs, by individual SSIDs, and by priority numbers in various standard QoS classification systems (802.11e, 802.1p, and DSCP). The Extreme Networks device then prioritizes, processes, and forwards the incoming traffic as determined by the Extreme Networks QoS level to which it is mapped.

QoS Common Objects Description Summary

Classifier Maps: You can add, modify, clone, and delete classifier maps. APs use a classifier map to assign various types of incoming traffic to specific classes in the Extreme Networks QoS classification system. The mapping can be based on criteria such as network service types, source MAC OUIs, and the Ethernet interfaces or SSIDs through which the traffic arrives.

Marker Maps: You can add, modify, clone, and delete marker maps. Marker maps can be assigned to SSIDs and specify user profile-based data forwarding rate limits and weights. The classification system used to map an Extreme Networks class to outgoing traffic is IEEE 802.1p, or DiffServ.

Rate Control & Queuing: You can add, modify, and delete a variety of configuration settings for rate control and queuing objects on this page including determining how the traffic queue per user is managed by scheduling type. Extreme Networks devices can apply QoS (Quality of Service) to traffic originating from members of user profiles to determine the prioritization of various categories of traffic. Through these settings, you can set rate limits and traffic forwarding mechanisms for each Extreme Networks traffic class.
