The packet switched data network like Internet, which has traditionally supported throughput sensitive applications such as email and file transfer, is increasingly supporting delay-sensitive multimedia applications such as interactive video. These delay-sensitive applications would often rather sacrifice some throughput for lower delay. Unfortunately, the current packet switched network does not offer choices, but instead provides monolithic best-effort service to all applications. This paper evaluates CBQ (Class Based Queuing), CEDF (Coordinated Earliest Deadline First), WSDRR (Weighted Switch Deficit Round Robin) and RED-Boston scheduling schemes that is sensitive to Quality of Service (QoS) expectations for variety of applications and propose improvements.
