This paper focuses on the modeling and performance analysis for IPv6 traffic with multi-class QoS in virtual private networks (VPN). The multi-class QoS is implemented on a differentiated service basis using a priority scheme of 4 bits defined in the packet header of IPv6. A VPN-enable IP router is modeled as a tandem queuing system in which each output link consists of two parallel priority output queues. The high-priority queue is used to carry the delay sensitive traffic while the low-priority queue is used to carry the delay insensitive traffic. Multiple thresholds are deployed on each queue, respectively, for loss priority control. The performance analysis is done using fluid flow techniques. The numerical results obtained from the analysis show that the differentiated service based on the priority schemes defined in IPv6 is able to effectively satisfy the multi-class QoS requirement for supporting multimedia services in the VPN. The performance trade-off between the delay sensitive traffic and delay insensitive traffic in terms of traffic throughput, packet loss probability and end-to-end delay in VPN networks is presented
