This chapter introduces measurement of network performance in the context of an overall service-level agreement (SLA) framework. Performance measurement is a necessary component of service assurance in a service provider operational function.

QoS implementation within a next-generation network (NGN) is a means of enforcing the basic SLA parameters of the following:

• Delay. Often also referred to as latency, delay is made up of three components: propagation, serialization, and queuing.

Queuing delay is the time a packet spends ...
