This article presents a proposal for applying the ITU-T end-to-end QoS control architecture for next-generation networks to the distribution smart grid communication networks. We propose the use of a QoS broker device to enhance the QoS in the smart grid electrical distribution access domains by providing a centralization of QoS management. Our proposal takes decisions based on current network data traffic flows, existing QoS policies and customer service level agreements and facilitates interoperability with other technology domains in order to achieve seamless end-to-end QoS. The key feature of this end-toend QoS control is the mapping of QoS parameters mainly between broadband power line and wireless technologies that principally serve the distribution smart grid but it can be applied to other communication technologies as well.
