IP-availability and SLA

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference article in proceedingsScientificpeer-review

    Abstract

    We study possible Service Level Agreement (SLA) objectives corresponding network service availability in packet switched networks, focusing on IP networks. Service availability is looked from ISO-OSI reference model layers and cross-layer point of view. Both IETF and ITU-T metrics and definitions are discussed. We define IP network service availability, briefly IPavailability, as a set of metrics and consider the feasibility to measure these metrics. Regarding to a possible SLA, we also consider whether it is possible to affect or control a given single domain network in such a way that the performance regarding to an individual metric is improved.
