Abstract

This paper describes a Quality of Service (QoS) service on an IPv6 domain that aims
to service aggregates of real-time traffic with minimum delay, jitter, and packet loss. It
contains results from the tests that were performed in order to configure and evaluate the
QoSmechanisms.As an actual example of real-time traffic, we have used theOpenH323
project, an open source H.323 implementation that has been ported to IPv6. The QoS
mechanisms in IPv6 networks is still a field that has not been researched adequately,
and we therefore present the results from the experiments in our IPv6 network that
took advantage of the QoS mechanisms. This QoS service uses the Modular QoS CLI
(MQC) mechanism and especially the Low Latency Queue feature (LLQ) in order to
treat packets from real-time applications.
