Our Next Meeting - Wednesday September 7, 2016

QoS - From Best-Effort to Priority: Everything you wanted to know plus some things you didn’t

In a networking world that’s demanding 100% availability and minimized latency, there’s no topic more dreaded and more necessary than QoS.

We’ll breakdown “What is QoS?” into easy-to-understand ideas and examples, as well as dive into best practices, design, and even the physics behind what’s happening underneath the covers. We’ll even go through “Talking intelligently to your Telco” so you can get that better understanding of what’s going on from the other side of the fence and better negotiate or design your QoS policies.
