QoS (Quality of Service)

Published At: March 5, 2024

Quality of Service (QoS) refers to metrics that measure the overall performance of a service. In the streaming video context this often refers to networking, and the ability of a network to deliver video bytes quickly and consistently. Metrics that are often referred to include bandwidth, throughput, latency, and availability.

While Quality of Service metrics measure a service directly, Quality of Experieince (QoE) metrics measure performance from the user's perspective.
