1. A method for personalizing quality of service for network traffic comprising:
assigning a user priority to a specific user and an application priority to a type of application;
adding, to at least one packet from a client device associated with the specific user and the type of application, a header comprising at least a Differentiated Services Code Point value to generate at least one modified packet, wherein the at least one Differentiated Services Code Point value is based on a combination of the user priority associated with the specific user and the application priority;
based on the at least one Differentiated Services Code Point value, sorting, by the specific user, the at least one modified packet and a plurality of other packets; and
forwarding the at least one modified packet end to end through a network that is personalized to the specific user and the type of application by mapping a treatment policy to the identifier.
