This paper presents one of the features of DS (Differentiated Services) architecture, namely the queuing or congestion management. Packets can be placed into separate buffer queues, on the basis of the DS value. Several forwarding policies can be used to favor high priority packets in different ways. The major reason for queuing is that the router must hold the packet in its memory while the outgoing interface is busy with sending another packet. The main goal is to compare the performance of

The research is empirical and qualitative, the results are useful both in infocommunication and in education.
