Add Downstream QoS Priority Rules
The streaming database contains downstream QoS priority rules for common video streaming services. You cannot
change or delete these default services. However, you can add custom downstream QoS priority rules for video
streaming traffic based on the following components:
A specific keyword
A specific device by MAC address
To specify prioritization of streaming traffic, create a policy for a keyword or MAC address and add the policy to the
router's QoS rule table.
Add a Downstream QoS Policy Rule by Keyword
After you enable downstream QoS (see 
 on page 62), you can
add a custom downstream QoS priority rule for video streaming traffic based on a specific keyword.
