Having in mind picture of future all-IP network, as well as fixed-mobile convergence, interworking between Universal Mobile Telecommunication System (UMTS) and external networks is crucial for providing end-to-end Quality of Service (QoS). For the purpose of achieving QoS in all-IP mobile networks, particularly for broadband multimedia services, Differentiated Services (DiffServ) mechanism should be applied to UMTS technology. This paper proposes using of Low Latency Queuing (LLQ) scheduler, with the main idea of mapping voice and video telephony in two different QoS classes and virtual queues, but at the same time using Priority Queuing (PQ) within LLQ for both voice and video telephony over all other QoS classes.
