Nowadays building networks are not just connecting hosts with switches and routers, it’s more about readability and the minimal delay end-to-end, with that network testing and measurement techniques are mandatory.
In this podcast, we compare what we had, what we have today, and what tomorrow brings, and where TWAMP will be.
TWAMP is an open protocol defined in RFC 5357 which is used to measure the network performance between two devices that support the TWAMP protocol. It utilizes two protocols, TWAMP-Control and TWAMP-Test. In addition, there are two variants, TWAMP and TWAMP Light. The TWAMP control and reflector entities involved exchange packets as part of a session. Reflected packets are timestamped, enabling the performance of the network to be measured.
