A recent trend in interconnection network technologies is the inclusion of various mechanisms to support a variety of Quality of Service concepts. This has been necessitated by an increasing number of application areas that require some level of performance guarantees from the network for parts of its traffic. In this paper we describe and compare the capabilities and support for Quality of Service of the three most important interconnection network technology standards of today. Equalities between the technologies are explained and differences are clarified.
