Description: You were hired as a network engineer for a small firm that had
just recently implemented a voice-over Internet protocol (VoIP) solution in its
converged network, which had replaced all of its analog lines. During your
first week on the job, you hear a lot of complaints about the quality of the
voice calls, and you have also noticed this yourself on a few occasions. You
started an investigation to identify and resolve the root cause. You noticed
that both voice and regular data traffic are using the same virtual local area
networks (VLANs), and there was no priority given to the traffic.You have heard
of the term quality-of-service (QoS) and know that this could be implemented to
prioritize traffic flow as it moves across the network. You do not have all of
the details about how QoS works, but want to because you believe it could help.
Using all available resources, complete research on QoS. In 4–6 pages,
addressed the following: Describe quality-of-service. Describe why you believe
it is important to have this technology configured in a network. Provide at
least 1 example of how it could be beneficial. Describe a time that you have
utilized quality-of-service in your job. If you have not utilized QoS, describe
a situation where you believe it would have been beneficial. Be specific with
details in your discussion.
