Understanding Quality of Service (QoS).

Before we dive into Dynamic QoS, at its core, Quality of Service (QoS) is a technology designed to manage network traffic effectively. It prioritizes essential applications over less critical ones, ensuring that important network activities, like video calls, receive precedence over lower-priority tasks, such as streaming videos on Netflix.

Goals of QoS

    • Minimize Latency: Decreases the delay before a transfer of data begins following an instruction.
    • Eliminate Jitter: Avoids variations in packet delay at the receiving end, important for quality in real-time communication

The Evolution of Dynamic QoS

Traditional QoS systems operate on predetermined rules that allocate bandwidth to prioritized applications and create virtual queues for data packets. This method follows a basic first-in-first-out principle, where bandwidth is reserved for prioritized traffic.

Transition from Tradition:

  • Dynamic QoS transcends these limitations by utilizing intelligent software to monitor and adjust traffic rules dynamically for optimized performance. Here’s how Bigleaf elevates this process:
  • Intelligent Identification: Bigleaf identifies application traffic dynamically.
  • Real-time Adjustment: Continuously adjusts QoS policies based on current network conditions to ensure high-priority traffic like VoIP, SSH, and Remote Desktop is not hindered by ISP congestion.

The Business Case for Dynamic QoS

Without effective QoS, network traffic can become chaotic, akin to rush-hour traffic with non-functioning traffic lights, leading to significant performance degradation. Bigleaf automates the identification and prioritization of traffic, eliminating the need for constant manual monitoring.

Benefits for your business:

  1. Enhanced Productivity: Optimizes latency, allowing employees to remain productive and focused.
  2. Improved Reliability: Prevents disruptions in VoIP calls, video conferences, and VPN sessions, ensuring smooth, reliable communication.
  3. Cost Efficiency: Rather than upgrading to more expensive internet lines, Dynamic QoS provides a cost-effective solution by better managing existing bandwidth.

Optimizing Internet Performance with Bigleaf Networks

Many businesses attempt to improve slow internet speeds by increasing their service plans. However, Bigleaf Networks proposes a more strategic approach through Dynamic QoS, which ensures that cloud and SaaS applications perform optimally, regardless of the internet provider or location.
