Traffic Measurement (telecommunications)

Measurement of traffic within a network allows network managers and analysts to both make day-to-day decisions about operations and to plan for long-term developments. Traffic Measurements are used in many fundamental activities such as :

  • Identification of traffic patterns and trends
  • Calculating the traffic intensity in a specific circuit or group
  • Monitoring the service
  • Dimensioning and managing the network
  • Calculating tariffs
  • Performing forecasting
  • Dimensioning and managing the SS7network
  • Checking the performance of the common channel signalling network

The following sections will answer some fundamental questions about Traffic Measurement, such as: What should be measured; when should it be measured; what assumptions are made; and what errors can occur?

Famous quotes containing the words traffic and/or measurement:

    Too much traffic with a quotation book begets a conviction of ignorance in a sensitive reader. Not only is there a mass of quotable stuff he never quotes, but an even vaster realm of which he has never heard.
    Robertson Davies (b. 1913)

    That’s the great danger of sectarian opinions, they always accept the formulas of past events as useful for the measurement of future events and they never are, if you have high standards of accuracy.
    John Dos Passos (1896–1970)
