  1. Framework, Usages, Metrics Proposal for TGT September 8, 2004 Pratik Mehta, Fahd Pirzada – Dell Paul Canaan – Intel Amer Hassan, Don Berry – Microsoft Pratik Mehta (Dell), et al

  2. Abstract Work progress to-date Framework, Usages, Metrics Proposal Next Steps Pratik Mehta (Dell), et al

  3. Excerpt from Nov 2003 Presentation – Schedule Plan The milestones set out in Nov 2003 are on track … WPP/TGt have been meeting expectations …  Presenter: Stephen Berger, Reference doc.: 11-03-0929-00-0wng Pratik Mehta (Dell), et al

  5. Excerpt from Nov 2003 Presentation – Scope WPP/TGt continues to focus on the scope set out in Nov 2003 … Presenter: Pratik Mehta, Reference doc.: 11-03-0927-00-0wng Pratik Mehta (Dell), et al

  6. Excerpt from Nov 2003 Presentation – Metrics WPP/TGt continues to discuss metrics highlighted in Nov 2003 by Broadcom… • Deciding what parameters are to be considered is the challenge. • How do we transform user perception of performance into a set of repeatably-measurable quantities? • Throughput and Range • Visibility of APs • Delays in association • Host CPU utilization • Ability to roam without loss of connections • Etc. Slides 16-20 of that presentation delve further into metrics that are still relevant … … TGt can decide what makes sense … Presenter: Jason Trachewsky et al, Reference doc.: 11-03-0933-00-0wng Pratik Mehta (Dell), et al

  7. Excerpts from Presentations – Metrics WPP/TGt continues to discuss usages and metrics, and make progress … • Roaming is important to consider • Roaming brings in many variables and causes that impact performance Presenter: Bob Mandeville, Reference doc.: 11-03-0617-00-0wng • More recent presentation on metrics by Bob … • Maximum Forwarding Rate • FWMOL (Fwd rate at max offered load) • Frame Loss, Frame Loss Rate • Latency • Jitter • Association Capacity, Association Rate • Rate versus Range Presenter: Bob Mandeville, Reference doc.: 11-04-0987-00-0wpp Pratik Mehta (Dell), et al

  8. Excerpt from Recent WPP/TGt Presentation – Framework WPP/TGt has discussed the need for framework … below is as highlighted by Intel… • Test Environment • Come to consensus on environment types (NLOS, LOS, Conductive, etc) • Develop a mechanism to characterize the environment • Propose recommended practices for the environmental set up • Metrics • Define metrics relevant to characterize the environment • Identify metrics that impact WLAN performance as well as corresponding methodology to obtain these metrics • Devise a mechanism to predict the metric performance • Test Case Template • Come to consensus on the necessary metrics to characterize the environment that should be reported in a test template • Define test case scenarios for each metric • Determine recommended practice for reporting/analyzing of the results • Usage • Come to consensus on usage scenarios that represent the WLAN traffic pattern (file transfers, streaming media, connectivity, voice over IP, etc) • Categorize which metrics have the greatest impact on the performance of those usage scenarios Presenter: Paul C. Canaan, Reference doc.: 11-04-0802-01-0wpp Pratik Mehta (Dell), et al

  9. Interim Summary WPP/TGt has made good progress to date … continue to deliver … • TGt is focusing on the right approaches • TGt is also meeting deliveries that were highlighted 9 months ago • TGt has the right constituencies and experts represented • … In short, TGt is a healthy group, and can move forward and deliver • There is a call for urgency in the short-term to address some key industry needs • OEM needs during product development • Reviewer/Publisher needs for product reviews • Guidelines for system integrators • The following slides provide a proposal to move forward Pratik Mehta (Dell), et al

  10. Restatement of TGt Framework Usage+Environment  Metrics  Methodology  Test Template …  Prediction Usage + Environment Metrics Sub-metrics Methodology Test Environment Test Procedure Test Template Use Measurements To Predict Pratik Mehta (Dell), et al

  11. Usage+Environment  Metrics  Methodology  Test Template …  Prediction Definition of Terms in TGt Framework Usage + Environment • Usage and environment of end-user Metrics Sub-metrics • Metrics are the key performance indicators as perceived by users – for the usages they employ in their environments (above) • Sub-metrics are drivers of those metrics • Sub-metrics help understand what affects the metrics Methodology Test Environment Test Procedure Test Template • Methodology is the way to measure metrics and sub-metrics • Test Environment is a model of the user’s environment • Test Procedure is the set of steps to perform measurements • Test Template is the content and format used to report the measurements Use Measurements To Predict • Output from Methodology and Measurements are used to predict performance Pratik Mehta (Dell), et al

  12. Usage + Environment  Metrics  Methodology  … Proposal – Focus on three Cases • 1. Data Oriented Applications + Home, Corporate Environment • Metrics: • Throughput, Range, Directionality • Sub-metrics: • Path loss, EVM measurements, Interference, Multipath, Noise, SNR, Receive sensitivity, Transmit power • Methodology: • Chariot scripts – Chamber, Indoor • Web-downloads – Indoor • File-Transfers, File-Sharing – Indoor • Rotating tables • 3. Latency Sensitive Apps + Home, Corporate Environment • Metrics: • All of 1, Latency, Jitter • Sub-Metrics: • MOS/PESQ, PSQM, One-way delay, Packet loss • Methodology: • Decoder/Encoder characteristics, Network protocols (H.323, P2P, SIP) • Apps: Netmeeting, Skype, Vonage • 2. Streaming Media Apps + Home, Corporate Environment • Metrics: • All of 1, Frames dropped, Image quality • Sub-Metrics: • TCP Re-transmissions, Packet errors, Latency, AV synchronization, Control Channel (Gaming, Multicast), Image quality (Jitter, Blockiness, Blur), Bandwidth stability, Buffering (pre-roll buffer, jitter buffer) • Methodology: • Unicast, Multicast, Real-time streaming, Stored content, Decoder/Encoder characteristics, Network protocols (TCP, UDP), Buffering • Number of streams, • Apps: Bobsled, VideoLAN, Real server. Each of these Usage cases will need to be partitioned … (next slide shows example for #1) Attributes common to all three usages to consider: No. of Clients; No. of APs; Stationary/Roaming; Encryption/Authentication Pratik Mehta (Dell), et al

  13. Usage + Environment  Metrics  Methodology  … Partitioning Approach for Usage Case #1 1. Data Oriented Applications + Home, Corporate Environment • Chariot Throughput + Indoor, Chamber Environment • Metrics: • Throughput, Range, Directionality • Sub-Metrics • Path loss, EVM measurements, Interference, Multipath, Noise, SNR, Receive sensitivity, Transmit power • Methodology: ? • Web Downloads + Indoor Environment • Metrics: • Latency, Throughput, Range • Sub-Metrics • Path loss, EVM measurements, Interference, Multipath, Noise, SNR, Receive sensitivity, Transmit power • Methodology: ? • File transfer, File sharing + Indoor Environment • Metrics: • Throughput, Range • Sub-Metrics • Path loss, EVM measurements, Interference, Multipath, Noise, SNR, Receive sensitivity, Transmit power • Methodology: ? Pratik Mehta (Dell), et al

  14. Similar Partitioning is needed for #2 and #3 • To be filled out Pratik Mehta (Dell), et al

  15. Proposed Timeline for TGt • Metrics/Sub-metrics, Methodology development Letter Ballot Mar’05 Framework Adoption Report In Berlin Sep’04 Framework Adoption Pre-Berlin 9thSep’04 Usage Case #1 Nov’04 Usage Case #2 Usage Case #3 Jan’05 Pratik Mehta (Dell), et al

  16. Next Steps • Get agreement on the framework and approach • Get agreement that the three usage cases presented are the one we can focus on • Align in Berlin meeting with wider audience in TG • Develop the three usage cases further • Sanitize and update the metrics and sub-metrics • Hone in on the Methodology components, test environment, procedure, etc. • Finalizing the test case templates for reporting and analysis • Usable outputs for Usages #1, #2, #3 (see timeline) • Draft recommended practices specification • Include definitions and terminology Pratik Mehta (Dell), et al

  17. Backup Pratik Mehta (Dell), et al

  18. Parking Lot for Metrics and Sub-metrics Proposing a “parking-lot” list of parameters – determine whether they are metrics or sub-metrics, or part of the methodology, and which of the usage cases they apply to … Performance metrics by OSI model layers Pratik Mehta (Dell), et al
