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.


  • 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
