Quality of Service (QoS) in Microsoft Teams


Microsoft Teams has undeniably emerged as a protagonist in the digital landscape over the past two years, boasting millions of daily users. As organizations increasingly rely on this collaborative platform, it becomes paramount to prioritize and consistently optimize the services provided to employees. This is precisely where Quality of Service (QoS) takes center stage.

Why Quality of Service in Teams?

Microsoft Teams, functioning as a centralized hub for video conferencing, phone calls, chats, and document storage, juggles myriad activities, departments, and users. Depending on your bandwidth, network delays, particularly in voice or video streams, may pose a challenge. However, there’s no need for your workforce to endure the inconvenience, as such disruptions can significantly impact workflow efficiency. Enter Quality of Service (QoS), a solution that ensures video streams and voice features are given priority over other non-urgent traffic, preventing disruptions in calls, ensuring clear communication, and eliminating delays in conferences.
