Traditional Data Networks were optimized to carry data traffic. New features are being implemented in modern routers in the backbone of the network, that enable them satisfy the requirements of wide range of applications, by tailoring the allocation of resources, like buffers and bandwidth, based on the requirements of these applications. This provides the level of predictability and control beyond what is provided by traditional routers. These features are a part of a framework, called Quality of Service (QoS) framework, which attempts to satisfy the requirements of different applications injecting traffic into the network. This paper provides an overview of the features, called QoS features, which should be present in core routers as a part of Quality of Service (QoS) framework of the network.
