Abstract

This study presents a novel approach for the measurement of one-way delays and throughput between network nodes in heterogeneous environment over Wide Area Network (WAN). This study investigates performance evaluation of remote data transfers on heterogeneous services and technologies environment. This study proposes an enhanced equation to evaluate the performance of network traffic management via Little Law and Queuing theory to improve the evaluation algorithm. To get accuracy results on the performance of simulation model, it measures (verify and validate) data from real experiment. This project uses network management tool to capture those data and Ping Plotter application (network analyzer) to generate traffic. As a result, this simulation model can provide a good approximation of the real traffic (one-way delays and throughput) observed in the real network environment (WAN).
