Paper Abstract

This paper aims to analyze the QoS performance of two main technology mechanisms, Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) and Differentiated Services (DS). The introduction of both mechanisms to support throughput and delay sensitive real-time media traffic will have an impact on critical applications with respect to QoS and traffic engineering. MPLS is a traffic forwarding mechanism that allows traffic to use multiple paths and DS is a mechanism that provides for aggregate traffic to be classified and conditioned at the edge of the network routers. The two modeled techniques and their performance will be evaluated with respect to their end-to-end delay. The QoS will be incorporated in both the MPLS and DS mechanisms while preserving the efficiencies of the backbone structure of the Internet, and also the performance is compared with the existing IP routing algorithms.
