Chapter 18. Wireless LAN QoS Considerations and Recommendations

The primary role of quality of service (QoS) in the wireless networks is to reduce the latency and jitter of real-time applications over the wireless media. A secondary role of QoS in the WLAN is to provide application-management for traffic originating on wireless devices, including classification (which may incorporate deep packet inspection), marking, and policing.

Therefore, several of the strategic QoS design principles discussed in Chapter 11, “QoS Design Principles and Strategies,” apply to WLAN QoS designs, including the following:
