Analysis of the Quality of Service (QoS) in the UMTS (Universal Mobile Telecommunications System) network has been done using different parameters. UMTS is a universal telecommunication service which is more popularly known as 3G. It uses Wideband Code Division Multiple Access (WCDMA) techniques inculcating internet protocol, urban terrestrial and radio air interfaces. Thus, resources used here also allow lower generation services. It provides better speed, security, bandwidth utilization etc. Quality of Service is analyzed by changing the value of the precedence bit of the CBR application. The values of the precedence bits that have been taken are 0, 1, 4 and 6. The comparison has been done on the basis of throughput, average end to end delay etc.
