QoS Testing In a Live Private IP MPLS Network with CoS Implemented

Živko Bojović, Emil Šećerov, Vlado Delić

This paper describes a testing conducted on a private IP/MPLS network of a Telecom operator during service introduction. We have applied DiffServ and E-LSP policies for bandwidth allocation for predefined classes of service (voice, video, data and VPN). We used a traffic generator to create the worst possible situations during the testing, and measured QoS for individual services. UML considerations about NGN structure and packet networks traffic testing are also presented using the deployment, class and state diagrams. Testing results are given in tabular and graphical forms, and the conclusions derived will be subsequently used as a basis for defining the stochastic traffic generator/simulator.
