Multimodal Performance Measurement for Internet Access Profiling
Measuring the performance of an Internet access, whether it is fixed or mobile, is a common claim from both subscribers and network operators.
While users expect a versatile tool that is available on a wide range of platforms and accessible any time and any place, to get an easy-to-understand quantitative picture on the subscribed Internet access, operators may have various management scenarios (e.g., testing a new deployment, handling performance issues and claims, forecasting, etc.) to perform measurements ad hoc or scheduled.
The key feature of our measurement system is the integrated concept that incorporates a multimodal measurement engine concurrently supporting both web-based and dedicated HW-based clients. This design concept accommodates flexibly to the requisites of both parties. Furthermore, the implemented measurement methodology complies with and extends the related proposals of EU BEREC.
KEY SYSTEM FEATURES
- Web- and hardware-based measurements within one system
- Measurement range: 1 Mbps - 1+ Gbps
- High precision: < 3% web-based measurement error (typically)
- Measured access QoS parameters: DL/UL bitrate (TCP throughput/goodput), packet loss (3 methods), RTT, RTT jitter, TCP retransmissions, and performance statistics
- Wide OS support: Windows 7/8/8.1/10, Linux, OSX, Android, iOS
- Wide browser support: Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Apple Safari
- Web technologies: HTML5/JScript (no browser plugin is required)
- Low resource requirements on client-side
- Portable dedicated HW clients (optional)
- Scalable performance: builtin server-side load balancing
- Measurement service differentiation: concurrent public (crowdsourced) and internal (technical) measurements
- Meets and extends IETF and EU BEREC methodology proposals
