This paper presents an application of Markov Decision Process (MDP) into the provision of traffic prioritisation in the best-effort networks. MDP was used because it is a standard, general formalism for modelling stochastic, sequential decision problems. The implementation of traffic prioritisation involves a series of decision making processes by which packets are marked and classified before being despatched to destinations. The application of MDP was driven by the objective of ensuring the higher priority packets are not delayed by the lower ones. The MDP is believed to be applicable in improving the traffic prioritisation arbitration.
