An Analysis of Latency, Jitter and Packet Loss in a Network with Telepresence System
Quality of service in a network is important in ensuring that packets reached its intended recipient especially in a
video streaming service like telepresence. Different parameters like latency, jitter and packet loss are use to measure
performance of a network. Measuring these parameters is a way of measuring the quality of service received by the users.
The parameters mentioned were tested through performing a ping test and traffic shaping while there is an on-going
telepresence session with and without QoS implementation. Based on the testing conducted, results have shown a significant
improvement on latency, jitter, and packet loss during the telepresence session with QoS implementation compared when
QoS was not implemented.
