Broadening the criteria for QoS performance and guaranteed service through reputation systems hinge on trust and belief. As the Internet matures in promptness, reliability, accessibility and foremost security for a certain targeted QoS level, this is termed as ‘Generalized QoS level’. GQoS includes emphasis on security, reputation and trust. Invoking economic design principles in the present day Internet have provided measurable ingredients for QoS as they identified performance criteria such as average response time, maximum response time, throughput, application failure probability and packet loss. QoS can be affected by various factors, both quantitative (i.e., latency, CPU performance, storage capacity etc.) and qualitative that proliferate through reputation systems hinging on trust and belief .As the Internet matures in promptness, reliability, availability and foremost security for a certain quality service level targeted, it embraces a GQoS. level.
