Intel® IXP400 Software VLAN and QoS Application: Guide, V1

1.0 Introduction
1.1 Scope and Purpose
The purpose of this document is to provide high-level technical design information for the Intel® IXP400 software VLAN and QoS Application. Based on Intel IXP400 software V1.4, this example code is provided to implement IEEE 802.1Q virtual local area networks (VLAN), IEEE 802.1p User Priority to Traffic Class (TC) mappings, and Ingress Quality of Services (QoS) functionality for IPv4 traffic using the Intel IXP400 software.

This document covers the high-level functionality of the various modules, and describes their behavioral links. For a more complete understanding, you should review the API reference information and the VLAN and QoS Application V1.0 user interface and source code.

It is assumed that you are familiar with IEEE 802.1D Ethernet bridging and IEEE 802.1Q/p VLAN and Priority functionality.
