Quality of Service (QoS) in Microsoft Teams

Microsoft Teams has played a protagonist role in the past two years. Having millions of users daily, organizations should prioritize and ensure the service they’re providing to their employees is constantly optimized. That is when Quality of Service (QoS) steps ahead.

Why Quality of Service in Teams?

Microsoft Teams, being a hub that incorporates video, phone, chats, document storage, compromises daily with many activities, departments, and people. It is a possibility that, depending on your bandwidth, you may experience network delays, especially in voice or video streams. However, your workers don’t have to suffer the inconvenience of this, since this situation may affect their workflow. This is when QoS enters the panorama, making video streams and voice features “cut in line” in front of other traffic that might not be urgent as missing content in a call, difficulty understanding, or delayed information in a conference.
