A Practical Evaluation Method of Network Traffic Load for Capacity Planning

Abstract : Communications network operators are supposed to provide high quality network service at low cost. Operators always monitor the amount of traffic and decide equipment investment when the amount exceeds a certain threshold considering trade-offs between link capacity and its utilization. To find the proper threshold efficiently, this paper proposes a practical threshold definition method which consists of fine grained data collection and computer simulation. We evaluate the proposed method using commercial traffic data-set. The results show the proper timing for the equipment investment.
