Service Trends: Triple Play=Voice+Data+Video There exists no killer applications! Pack them up!! Voice from Phone Data from PC VoD/ TV Videophone Triple Play Services: - Italy: FastWeb - Japan: NTT RENA, KDDI, SoftBank - Korea 1. KT: All up prime (Megapass+VoIP+Videophone+Messaging+Broadcasting) 2. Dacom: Internet+VoIP+ Broadcasting 3. Hanaro Telecom: 2 Scenarios PSTN: xDSL+POTS+SkyLife Cable: Cable internet+VoIP+Broadcasting
Technologies for Internet QoS Speed up & Over-provisioning (QoS-Free) - Current BE service - Applicable to any kind of future applications * Almost zero delay if link speed is in the order of 10s of Mbps Service Differentiation for Priority Traffic SP, CBQ, Hybrid - Wired network: IETF DiffServ + MPLS (Priority service +Tunneling) Priority: EF > AF > BE - Wireless ad hoc network: SWAN (Feedback control + CAC) Priority: rt traffic > BE traffic Policy-based QoS Guarantee - Policies for service differentiation / BW allocation / scheduling / routing

Policies for IP QoS Principle for IP QoS: Be faithful to IP’s philosophy. - Advantage of IP: Connectionless paradigm Simple & scalable IP QoS Provisioning: via Policy-based networking - Destination-based routing based on OSPF principle - Treat QoS traffic with higher priority than the BE traffic SP does not sacrifice the lower class traffic when the link speed exceeds 10s of Mbps!! - Protection of QoS traffic: Class-based CAC - Network–wide: Interoperation of Policy Server/NMS Dynamic CAC & bandwidth management

Bandwidth Allocation Alternatives Bandwidth reservation model - Absolute QoS guarantee - Low efficiency - e.g.: IntServ architecture - Application to: Videophone service Bandwidth share with priority scheme model - Statistical QoS guarantee - High utilization - e.g.: DiffServ architecture - Application to: Multi-service
Bandwidth Reservation Model : Videophone Service Architecture C v =C C: Number of videophone connection (channel) : Bandwidth of a videophone connection E-S/W Video Phone Router LAN IP Network (DiffServ) C v = ? Internet traffic CdCd … … ISP E-S/W
Input to The System Parameters: Number of subscribers: M (Tens of thousand) Fraction of active connections at busy hour: (10%~20%) Mean session duration: 1/ ( 1,000seconds) Mean session arrival rate: (0.01 ~ 1 ) Session broking probability: (0.5~1%) Bandwidth requirement of a Videophone session: = 2Mbps (For basic rate service) (8bits/pixel 250 200pixels/frame 5frames/sec=2Mbps)
Analytic System Model Assumption on the session: Session arrival: Poisson arrival Session duration: Exponential distribution System model: Infinite number of traffic sources Full availability link M/M/c/c Queuing model with C concurrent channels Erlang B-formula for GoS of videophone service Constraint on the Service level: E(C, ) . where = (M / )/3600
Results and Discussion Typical Assumptions: M = 30,000 residential subscribers = 0.1 (Residential= 10%, Business=20%) 1/ =1,000 seconds =0.36/0.72 sessions / Busy hour / Person (Residential / Business) =1% = 2Mbps (basic rate) Result of computation: Input traffic in Erlang: 300 Erlang Computed number of channel: 323 Channels Required bandwidth: C v =C = 323 2Mbps = 646Mbps To provide the safety margin, we have to take into account the traffic from alternate route of the neighboring nodes: C v Final = 2 C v =1.3Gbps Final result.
Comparison: Residential vs. Business When the subscribers are business customers - = = 0.72 (The offered load increases to 4 times that of the residential subscribers!) Total required bandwidth for a number of subscribers: Number of subscriber Required number of channel (residential / business) Total Required Bandwidth (residential / business) 30, / / 5.2 Gbps 60, / / 10.4 Gbps 90, / / 14.8 Gbps
Bandwidth Share Model : Strict Priority Scheduling Scheme System model: DiffServ-aware MPLS Service model: Strict priority (SP) to voice over data1 over data2 Router model: M/G/1 queue with non-preemptive service Objectives: Evaluation of delay for class1, 2, and 3 packets Our concern: 1. Can we apply the SPSS in a DiffServ router for BcN? 2. How about the behavior of delay with respect to the system parameters? Voice packet Data1 packet SP C Data 2 packet
System Model System parameters: - Mean arrival rate for voice/data1/data2: 1, 2, 3 - Mean service time for voice/data1/data2 : 1/ 1, 1/ 2, 1/ 3 - Second moment of service time: E[ k 2 ],k=1,2,3 - Offered load for voice/data1/data2 : 1, 2, 3 - Link capacity: C Source models: - Voice: Poisson arrival, fixed packet size - Data1 & data2: Poisson arrivals, Pareto distributions
Delay Performance Mean waiting times for M/G/1 queue with SP service: Mean waiting time for M/G/1 queue with FIFO service: R R C S 2 =squared coefficient of variation for service time of a packet
Traffic Load Type Load Type 11 22 33 A B C D Light-voice Heavy-data Heavy-voice Light-data
Waiting Time of Voice Packets for Different Link Capacities m2=500bytes, m3=1500bytes Under SP scheduling scheme, delay of voice packet is almost negligible for high-speed links!
Waiting Time of Voice Packets for Different Service Schemes The conventional wisdom of “SP isolates voice traffic from non- voice traffic” does not hold! This is more evident for the WFQ-families. m2=m3=1,000 bytes, C=1Mbps
Delay Performance of Data Traffic Performance comparison between different classes: 1 =0.2 1 =0.4 2 =0.2 2 =0.4 1 =0.2
Summary Policy is important for QoS provisioning in future Internet. Network provisioning is dependent on the policy. Reservation model over-estimates the network resources. Shared bandwidth model will prevail. Accurate dimensioning of network resources saves cost.
