This book summarizes the key Quality of Service technologies deployed in telecommunications networks: Ethernet, IP, and MPLS. The QoS of the network is made up of two parts: fault and resource management. Network operation quality is among the functions to be fulfilled in order to offer QoS to the end user. It is characterized by four parameters: packet loss, delay, jitter or the variation of delay over time, and availability. Resource management employs mechanisms that enable the first three parameters to be guaranteed or optimized. Fault management aims to ensure continuity of...

Network synchronization deals with the distribution of time and frequency across a network of clocks often spread over a wide geographical area. The goal is to align (i.e. synchronize) the time and frequency scales of all clocks, by using the communication capacity of their interconnecting links. Network synchronization plays a central role in digital telecommunications as it determines the quality of most services offered by the network operator. However, the importance of network synchronization is often underestimated and how to solve quality-of-service degradation caused by...
