NDIS QoS Architecture for Data Center Bridging
This section describes the various components that are part of the NDIS Quality of Service (QoS) architecture for IEEE 802.1 Data Center Bridging (DCB). These components are shown in the following diagram.
The unshaded boxes in the diagram represent components that the Windows operating system provides, including components that support DCB. For more information about these components, see System-Provided DCB Components.
The shaded boxes in the diagram represent DCB components that independent hardware vendors (IHVs) and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) provide. For more information about these components, see Vendor-Provided DCB Components.
