I have done some reading online trying to understand the difference between DMVPN phase 1 and Phase 2, but still cannot tell the difference other than  IPsec configuration added for phase2
 
Any clear explanation will be very much appreciated.

Thanks

Crudely...

Phase1 is where IKE authenticates the VPN session, ensuring that a common set of security association protocols are used.  Phase 2 is where IPSec sets up the encryption.

I believe you are talking about DMVPN phase I, II, III which is a little different.

DMVPN Phase I: This phase involves configuring a single mGRE interface on the hub, and all the spokes are still static tunnels so you won’t get any dynamic spoke-to-spoke connectivity. The only advantage of the phase I setup is the fact the hub router’s configuration is much simpler.

DMVPN Phase II: This phase involves everysite being configured with mGRE interface so you get your dynamic spoke-to-spoke connectivity, no more static tunnel destination’s will be configured.

DMVPN Phase III: This phase expands on the scalability of the DMVPN network. This involve summarizing into the DMVPN cloud to provide (Remember EIGRP allows us to summarize out interfaces and BGP allows us to advertise aggregate addresses to neighbors). Along with configuring NHRP redirects and NHRP shortcut switching. NHRP redirects tells the source to find a better path to the destination it is trying to reach. NHRP shortcuts allow DMVPN to learn about other networks behind other DMVPN routers (kind of like ARP for DMVPN). However Phase III will get it’s own post later on.

Perhaps you can clarify whether you're talking about DMVPN specifically, or just the IPSec VPN part (which also applies when configuring DMVPN)?

In the world of WAN, QoS is a pretty important topic for most, if not all, networks. Some WAN technologies have QoS mechanisms built in, but others, such as some L2 WAN's, don't have QoS control in the provider cloud.
Let’s list some of the technologies that enable smooth teleworking.
