1. A method comprising:

  • receiving one or more frames, wherein each frame contains non-Quality-of-Service (non-QoS) header information;

    classifying the one or more frames to associate one or more of the frames with a Quality-of-Service (QoS) circuit based on the corresponding non-QoS header information wherein each frame has an associated QoS requirement that corresponds to one of the QoS circuits; and

    scheduling delivery of the one or more frames based upon the corresponding frame classifications, wherein non-QoS frames in classifications corresponding to Quality-of-Service (QoS) circuits are scheduled in a manner that meets the QoS requirements associated with the QoS circuits corresponding to the frames.
