Similar to IEEE 802.1p prioritization at layer-2, IP precedence uses three bits of the eight-bit ToS (Type of Service) field in the IP header to prioritize packets in a layer-3 network. There are eight classes of services (ranging from zero to seven) in IP precedence. Zero is the lowest priority level and seven is the highest.
