Benefits and options
AT&T Dynamic Traffic Management
$10 per month/per user
Qualified enterprise and government customers can receive priority treatment for data on the AT&T 4G LTE network. This prevents non-critical apps from impeding business critical apps which is valuable during times of high network demand.
|App||Connect to priority treatment with the tap of a button or set a geofence and get a reminder to start a session when you enter the location radius.|
|Preselect specific apps||Pre-select which apps are business critical by maintaining an application list also known as a manifest and receive priority treatment on the 4G LTE network anytime you launch those apps.|
|Packet marking||Not all packets are equal. Mark your IP packets (DSCP) and make sure your packets get the class of service they need, even when on the mobility network.|
|Limits||No limit on throughput rate for prioritized data.|
|Compatible solutions||AT&T Virtual Private Network, NetBond®, AT&T Enhanced Push-to-Talk as well as real-time interactive apps, business apps and machine-to-machine apps.|
What is wireless “Class of Service"?
Class of Service (CoS) or Quality of Service (QoS) manage multiple traffic profiles over a network by giving certain types of traffic priority over others. For example you can give voice traffic priority over email or http traffic.
What Classes of Service are offered with AT&T Dynamic Traffic Management?
AT&T Dynamic Traffic Management includes two premium classes of Service: Critical Data and Interactive Data. Critical Data Class of Service (CoS) is best suited for medium bandwidth, low latency business applications. Interactive Data CoS is best suited for real time, interactive applications.
What is Priority Access?
Priority Access allows the device to connect to the LTE network with a higher priority than a non-priority customer.
Is Priority Access available for all AT&T Dynamic Traffic Management Offers?
No. Priority Access is only available in the Public Safety offer and is restricted for use by qualified First Responders or companies and agencies classified as Critical Infrastructure.
How does data prioritization work with AT&T Dynamic Traffic Management?
AT&T Dynamic Traffic Management uses 3GPP standard methodologies to apply a priority Class of Service to specific application data as identified by the customer. Customers can specify one or more applications via Manifest or IP Packet Marking (Differentiated Services – DSCP) for prioritization.

AT&T Dynamic Traffic Management only supports qualified, business/mission critical applications. NOTE: AT&T Dynamic Traffic Management excludes broadcasting video application and general consumer application such as Netflix, YouTube or Facebook.
How is AT&T Dynamic Traffic Management applied to a customer’s application data?
There are two methods of applying AT&T Dynamic Traffic Management:
- Customer IP Packet Marking
A manifest is an application list unique for each customer. The customer provides application details such as Name, Application Server information (IP Address, Port and Protocol) to Mobility Technical Engineer (MTE). MTE creates the manifest for the customer and assigns the appropriate Class of Service for the specified application(s).
Customer IP Packet Marking
The customer must ensure their data traffic is marked with DSCP (Differentiated Services). If you have your own router, you are able to edit/identify the DSCP values. Additionally, certain applications may mark the data packets with DSCP. We recommend you consult with the MTE’s about your type of data traffic.
