Anyone knows about extended QCI in 4G?
Can we specify a specific bandwidth for a specific UE?
Carriers can provide differentiated QoS to subscribers who access the same service but have different priorities. High-priority subscribers can have preferential QoS in terms of access, resource allocation, and scheduling. Subscriber-class-based QoS control ensures that high-value subscribers have better user experience.
By extending standard QCIs (ranging from 1 to 9) to multiple extended QCIs, each representing a subscriber class, carriers can distinguish roaming subscribers from local subscribers and categorize local subscribers into gold, silver, bronze, and free-of-charge subscribers.
