Backhaul Evolution – Integrated QoS Management

This document aims to develop a framework for “Integrated Quality of Service Management” for mobile backhaul as part of the wider “Backhaul Evolution” project. This stream is focused mainly on service flow classification and inter-layer Class of Service alignment, continuing previous work started in NGMN project OSB (Optimized Solutions for mobile Backhaul). A further topic for analysis is the use of integrated QoS management mechanisms involving both radio and transport nodes, but this is out of scope of the current document, as will be detailed below.
