Network applications demand quality of service for enhanced call quality and increased user satisfaction. Hence, implementing queuing discipline at switches and routers in a network will govern the way packets are buffered while waiting for transmission. Queuing disciplines like first-in first-out (FIFO) queuing, priority queuing (PQ), weighted-fair queuing (WFQ), custom queuing and modified weighted round robin are more prominently deployed in network applications. These queuing disciplines help to control and manage network resources by fixing priorities for specific types of data on the network. The paper aims to analyze the quality of service parameters for various real time applications like File transfer protocol(FTP), email, database, Voice over IP(VOIP), video and web browsing,etc., and helps to optimise the use of available network resources. Moreover the quality of the network is compared using different QoS parameters such as end-to-end delay, throughput, jitter and Mean Opinion Score (MOS). This paper focuses on various queuing disciplines with low and high network traffic.
