The Future
So far, we've concentrated on cable telephony QoS. However, these QoS principles are equally applicable to video conferencing, gaming, or other multimedia services. Unfortunately, these services may degrade network throughput since they siphon bandwidth from lower-priority applications. Therefore, MSOs should quantify the performance impact of a new QoS-based feature before it is deployed.

Although cable networks are capable of transporting large quantities of data, they have weaknesses when used for telephony. Two of the most notable limitations are shared bandwidth and broadcast communication. The CMTS circumvents these limitations by allocating bandwidth, enforcing bandwidth caps, and providing QoS to high priority applications.

The importance of the CMTS will increase as it expands its role from data monitor to QoS enforcer. After this transition is complete, HFC networks will be a robust platform for cable telephony.
