Application Driven QoS is a service which enables applications to dynamically change the quality of service (e.g. bandwidth) available on end user network connections. Changes in QoS may be applied on either a temporary basis (i.e. for a defined period of time), or as the default QoS to be applied for a user each time they connect to the network.
Applications will govern the quality of service available to the end user by requesting that pre-defined QoS Feature profiles are applied on the end user's connection. It is the responsibility of the Service Provider to define these QoS Features and share them beforehand with application providers, along with a clear indication as to which of these can be used as temporary QoS Features and which can be used to set the default QoS on an end user connection.
