Proposal of a metric to evaluate network bandwidth balance
Keywords:Bandwidth; BBM; load balancing; network effectiveness;
Network quality evaluation is always a problem for which the network providers and managers care to save investment cost and to satisfy the demand of customers. Accompanied with the fast development of telecommunication (telecom) network presently, telecom services require the assurance of network quality more and more strictly. On the base of researching the bandwidth equilibration, the paper proposes a new metric which helps to evaluate the network quality by calculating the bandwidth equilibrium, and also helps to invest, research and exploit telecom networks more efficiently.
