Priority IP Service

Priority IP Service

Background gives egress queue priority to packets that are marked with IP Precedence 4.

Customer packets are marked with ip-precedence 4 on the closest layer3 device manages. There is too much variety in the local loops provided by all of's members to able to reliably trust and react on customer markings. For example, BCN remarks all packets at layer 3 to ip precedence 0. To mitigate this issue, packets are periodically re-marked inside WiscNet as needed based on known local loop constraints.

Only real time applications such as dedicated video conferencing should be added to the priority IP list can:

  • Add IP addresses to the priority IP service.
  • Verify which IP addresses are on the priority IP service
