François graduated in electrical engineering from Polytechnique Montreal.
With the introduction of 5G, NFV, SD-WAN, operators are looking for more precise and accurate tools to ensure carrier-grade performance. The working group of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) on IP Performance and Metrics has developed the RFC-5357 called Two-Way Active Measurement Protocol (TWAMP). The TWAMP protocol is a standards-based and highly effective performance monitoring process that expands upon the One-Way Active Measurement Protocol (OWAMP) specification with the addition of the performance measurement of round-trip and two-way metrics for IP-based networks.
Is TWAMP capable of bringing value for existing and future network deployment? Can it gather accurate performance statistics that truly reflect the end-to-end performance of any IP service?
This webinar will walk you through the TWAMP test and explore various use cases of real-time active monitoring using TWAMP. Important threshold metrics and requirements will also be discussed.
