The connected warfighter: Best QoS strategies for keeping communications open
For the warfighter, communication no longer means two-way radios and semaphore; a global military requires global, on-demand communications, from HD video feeds and Voice-over-Internet-Protocol (VoIP) to simpler services like email. But this enhanced need for digital communication means more strain on communication networks, especially at forward operating bases and other locations in theater. So how can the modern warfighter leverage the latest in communications without completely overrunning the network? The answer lies in implementing Quality of Service by utilizing technology as old as IP itself: the rarely used Differential Service Code Points (DSCP) bits that are included in every IP packet header.
