Introduction to NDIS QoS for Data Center Bridging

This section describes NDIS Quality of Service (QoS) for the IEEE 802.1 Data Center Bridging (DCB) interface. Miniport drivers use NDIS QoS for traffic prioritization of transmit, or egress, packets over a DCB-compliant network adapter.

NDIS QoS for DCB was introduced with NDIS 6.30 in Windows ServerĀ 2012.
