QoE | QoS用户感知与服务质量测试方案 iQualNet
iQualNet software is QoS (Quality of Service) and QoE (Quality of Experience) measurement tool for IPv4 and IPv6 networks. This tool runs on Windows platform clients and can be used for measurement on any type of IP network: fixed, mobile, satellite, WiFi, WiMAX, PLC and more…
To measure End-to-End QoS and QoE parameters, iQualNet uses real applications and a reference server as shown in the diagram below. iQualNet generates real traffic, not simulated or emulated traffic.
One or more iQualNet clients dialog via the Internet with the iQualNet reference server or other external servers by using the access network to characterize. The use of the reference server allows to ensure the availability of services used by a remote iQualNet client on a site and to guarantee adequate bandwidth for tests realized (resources reservation is made by the server for testing from an iQualNet remote station). Thus, only the network metrics are characterized and the client or server adds no uncertainty.
In many applications, iQualNet is used in mobility (car, train, plane…) for network metrics measurement.
Examples of Use Cases 应用案列
The examples below illustrate different use cases with iQualNet testbed. Generally a Windows laptop with iQualNet software is used at the client site.
