Quality of Service Traffic Manager
Agency / Branch:
DOD / ARMY
The Quality of Service Traffic Manager (QTM) software tool provides ability to actively change QoS policies and packet priorities based on characteristics of transmitted packets or priorities imposed by Commanders. QTM bridges the communication gap between applications, services, and network configuration components. The QTM technical approach leverages Referentia's Smart Data Flow (SDF) software based QoS monitoring and policy configuration management tool for Cisco routers and switches. SDF's capability to configure QoS, manage routing layer, provide visibility into network flow, and send synthetic traffic between Cisco routers to measure traffic conditions will be integrated into QTM. QTM development risk benefits from SDF's QoS and NetFlow capabilities that are at TRL 7. SDF will be upgraded to expand network device support beyond Cisco to include bandwidth appliances found in WIN-T. Furthermore, SDF's built-in QoS capabilities will include webservices and application control to meet the QTM requirements. The webservices API will determine message destination and bandwidth conditions (i.e. bandwidth, jitter, latency, and loss). During congestion events, QTM notifies applications to automatically throttle traffic based on priority levels corresponding to the commander's intent. This solution meets the pressing need for efficient battlefield utilization, optimal data throughput, on-the-move critical information exchange, and rapid infrastructure modernization.
