Qbone is an Internet2 initiative that is testing quality-of-service capabilities across the Abilene backbone. The tests are meant to demonstrate a network that can provide guaranteed low packet loss, low delay, and low jitter. The Qbone implements edge routers that provide priority tagging via Diff-Serv protocols.
