A quality network infrastructure is a user demand for the increment of traffic nowadays. Due to data traffic congestion, a network’s service quality cannot fulfill the user demand, especially for streaming-type traffic. For this, an appropriate queuing method can be a convenient solution for network congestion at the time of picking traffic load. In this paper, a simulation was conducted using the OPNET application to examine the feasibility of three types of queuing methods, namely first in first out (FIFO), priority queuing (PQ), and weighted fair queuing (WFQ). During the simulation, several important parameters such as delay, throughput, and response time are considered as performance metrics and compared among four types of applications as file transfer protocol (FTP), hypertext transfer protocol (HTTP), voice over internet protocol (VoIP), and video conferencing. According to the result, it is observed that WFQ provides comparatively improved results than PQ and FIFO.
