Dimensioning network links: a new look at equivalent bandwidth

  title={Dimensioning network links: a new look at equivalent bandwidth},
  author={Aiko Pras and Lambert J. M. Nieuwenhuis and Remco van de Meent and Michel Mandjes},
  journal={IEEE Network},
One of the tasks of network management is to dimension the capacity of access and backbone links. Rules of thumb can be used, but they lack rigor and precision, as they fail to reliably predict whether the quality, as agreed on in the service level agreement, is actually provided. To make better predictions, a more sophisticated mathematical setup is needed. The major contribution of this article is that it presents such a setup; in this a pivotal role is played by a simple, yet versatile… CONTINUE READING
