Quality of Service (QoS) relies on the shaping of preferential delivery services for applications in favour of ensuring sufficient bandwidth, controlling latency and reducing packet loss. QoS can be achieved by prioritizing important broadband data traffic over the less important one. Thus, depending on the users’ needs, video, voice or data traffic take different priority based on the prevalent importance within a particular context. This prioritization might require changes in the configuration of each network entity which can be difficult in traditional network architecture. To this extent, this paper investigates the use of a QoS-based routing scheme over a Software-Defined Network (SDN). A real SDN test-bed is constructed using Raspberry Pi computers as virtual SDN switches managed by a centralized controller. It is shown that a QoS-based routing approach over SDN generates enormous control possibilities and enables automation.
