The concept of quality of service (QoS) is a new computer technology. Previously, there was a slow internet connection to access the sites and it was slow to send information. But now, it requires speeding up the traffic and increasing the efficiency for audio and video. In this study, we discuss the concepts of QoS provided over the network to achieve these goals. This study aims to compare six algorithms to control the QoS, then, the best algorithm will be selected to improve the traffic. These algorithms are named first in first out (FIFO), priority queuing (PQ), custom queuing (CQ), CQ with low latency queuing (LLQ), weighted fair queuing (WFQ), WFQ with low latency queuing (LLQ), so the behavior of these algorithms can be measured. The results obtained by comparing between them using OPNETsimulation show that the best algorithm is the priority queuing algorithm, followed by CQ, then CQ with LLQ, then WFQ, then WFQ with LLQ and finally FIFO. All these results are plotted in the form of graphs to show the paths of these algorithms for the single state with an operation time of 5 minutes for each algorithm.
