Quality of Service is a general term for classifying and prioritizing traffic
throughout a network. That is, QoS enables you to establish an end-to-end
traffic priority policy to improve control and throughput of important data.
You can manage available bandwidth so that the most important traffic goes
first. For example, you can use Quality of Service to:
Upgrade or downgrade traffic from various servers.
Control the priority of traffic from dedicated VLANs or applications.
Change the priorities of traffic from various segments of your network as
your business needs change.
Set priority policies in edge switches in your network to enable traffic-
handling rules across the network.
