The NCS1002-K9 Cisco QSFP+ Network Convergence System (NCS) is a high-performance, carrier-grade router that supports Quality of Service (QoS) and traffic management capabilities to ensure that network traffic is handled efficiently and effectively.
QoS allows the NCS to prioritize different types of traffic, such as voice, video, and data, to ensure that mission-critical applications receive the bandwidth they need to function properly. This is achieved through the use of classifiers, which are used to identify different types of traffic and assign them to different queues for processing.
Traffic management is also an important feature of the NCS. This includes the ability to shape and rate-limit traffic, as well as to perform traffic policing and congestion management. These capabilities allow the NCS to control the amount of traffic flowing through the network, ensuring that resources are used efficiently and that network performance is not degraded.General Information about this Cisco NCS1002-K9
