As the Internet technology evolves, the number of users enjoying not only communication services but also broadcast services through communication networks increases and the issues on Quality of user Experience (QoE) are on the rise. The convergent services are usually provided in an end-to-end manner via multiple heterogeneous carriers' network. Thus, a Quality-of-Service (QoS) management plan on the interworking section between carriers is needed because each carrier focuses on the QoS management within its own network boundaries. In this paper, the authors analyze the related standard documents and cases of other nations to set up a classification model of providers and scheme for QoS management among providers.
