prioritizes traffic by specifying a port and priority level

–          VLAN-based

prioritizes traffic by specifying a VLAN and priority level

·       Class of Service (CoS)

sets the IEEE 802.1p priority tag based on IP address, IP Type of Service (ToS), Layer 3 protocol, TCP/UDP port number, source port, and DiffServ
