BT Offers 6 Classes of DiffServ

BT announced the launch of a new Six Class of Service Differentiated Services Code Point (6 CoS DSCP) service that guarantees the performance of applications by prioritizing packets into six distinct classes of service. DSCP is tailored specifically for modern networks and enhances QoS solutions by enabling customers to choose the performance level needed on a per packet basis by marking the DSCP field within the packet IP header to a specific value. This is an enhancement of BT's previous 3CoS offering. BT's new 6CoS DSCP model runs throughout the core and the edge of its network. The company said its 6CoS DSCP model offers greater flexibility and scalability for converged applications.
