Quality of Service (QOS) — provides the ability to provide different priorities to different pre-marked packets (applications, users, or data flows) or to guarantee a certain level of performance to those packets across the DISN. It does not provide on customer's traffic a higher priority than another customer's traffic.
SBU Voice services also provide automated access capabilities to the following networks:
- International gateways to the defense networks of our allies for cost avoidance of international commercial calling (e.g., Australia, Canada, North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), New Zealand, and United Kingdom).
- Enhanced Mobile Satellite Services (EMSS).
- Government Emergency Telephone System (GETS).
The following features contribute to the survivability of the SBU Voice:
- No single point of vulnerability will exist for the entire network.
- Transport supporting major installations (e.g., base, post, camp, and station leased or commercial sites/locations) will use physically diverse DISN routes (where possible).
Special C2 users under the current SBU Voice MLPP scheme (Flash and Flash Override) are provided non-blocking service.
SBU Voice is designed with the capability to permit interconnection and interoperation with similar tactical, U.S. Government, allied and commercial networks; all hardware and software in the network must be certified as interoperable and Information Assurance (IA) accredited as specified.
