This chapter discusses link-specific QoS tools needed on links of a specific type such as Frame Relay or MLP, including the following topics:
RTP header compression
Link Fragmentation and Interleaving
Link-specific tools refer to mechanisms that are enabled in a point-to-point manner on both ends of WAN links. These tools combine Layer 2 and Layer 3 features in their functionality. This chapter covers two types of link-specific tools:
Header-compression techniques—. These mechanisms can reduce bandwidth requirements for both voice and data traffic.
Link Fragmentation and Interleaving tools—. These mechanisms minimize serialization delays common to slow-speed WAN links.
The link-specific tools frequently are categorized ...
