With the integration of voice, video, and data over networks, quality of service has become a hot topic recently. A number of solutions have been proposed at various standards bodies including IEEE 802.3, IETF, and ATM Forum. ATM Forum has designed service categories; IEEE 802.3 is incorporating priorities in LANs; IETF initially worked on integrated services and RSVP and recently moved on to differentiated services for IP users.

The strength and weeknesses of each of these approaches will be discussed in this presentation.
