Web based platform for network performance measurements

Development of a measurement platform that implements the QoS indicators, already measured with the Ne.Me.Sys and MisuraInternet Speed Test tools, in a web-based application available to end users for the evaluation of Network Performance.

Goals

The web-based platform is a client-server system present on user devices and on measurement servers hosted at Italian IXPs. Access to the service will be via browser in a special page within the portal www.misurainternet.it. The instrument follows the ETSI ES 202 765 part. 4. for network performance measurements and complies with the “Large-scale Measurement of Broadband Performance” (LMAP) architecture (RFC7594 and RFC 8193) which standardizes methods and metrics.

Impact

The web-based platform for the measurement of Network Performance will make it possible to broaden the range of network measures in a common measurement environment (or reasonably such), both from a fixed and a mobile location and will allow analysis and evaluations to be carried out on telecommunications. In particular, it is expected to evaluate the evolution of the performance of both fixed and mobile access networks.

Description

The activity involves the development of a measurement platform that integrates the QoS indicators, already measured with the Ne.Me.Sys and MisuraInternet Speed ​​Test tools, in a web-based application available to end users for the evaluation of the Networks Performance. The application uses the measurement network of the MisuraInternet project by carrying out network tests with the same scientific rigor as Ne.Me.Sys. but not probative value.

The service can be used through a browser on a dedicated page inside the www.misurainternet.it portal and allows you to make network performance measurements according to the ETSI ES 202 765 part. 4 concerning the throughput for both the downlink and uplink sections, latency and jitter.

The web-based platform consists of a client part, on the user device, and measuring servers hosted at leading Italian IXP, in line with the directives “Large-scale Measurement of Broadband Performance” (LMAP) (RFC7594 and RFC 8193), standardizing the systems for measuring the performance of network devices.

The user will be able to evaluate the quality of the Internet access service when the measurement is made, taking into account any limitations introduced by the terminal used.

The use of the web-based platform for the measurement of Network Performance will allow to widen the pool of network measures in a common measurement environment (or reasonably such), both from a fixed position and from a mobile position and will allow analysis and evaluations to be carried out. on telecommunication networks.
