Re: QOS or more bandwidth

So, what problem is QoS solving?

QoS is about choosing the packets that you are willing to drop or delay
when congestion arises. If you aren't willing to drop/delay any of them,
then you must over-provision.

Regarding the existant thread, adding engineers and equipment will not
give you more bandwidth, but instead it allows you to be more efficient in
your packet disposal routines. They are not a substitue for pipe.
