Data Network Platform, Technical Requirements for Service Planning.
The Network Platform needs to be Capable of delivering a
wide range of Customizable
from simple Point-to-Point Bandwidth
Services, to No-Guarantee Micro-messenging;
from Delay Sensitive
Applications, to Delay Insensitive Applications;
from Basic Public Access
Services, to Corporate Customer
The Flexibility of the Network Platform to deliver a wide variety of Service
Types and Service Levels will allow for
and Development of New Services
based on usage statistics measurements.
Examples of End Services:
1. Point to Point Leased bits per second:
("Leased Bandwidth" "Leased Circuit" "DDS" "Digital Leases")
The Customer is can rent Two access ports at two physically distant points
on the network and is guaranteed an end-to-end Transport Speed at any time
required, regardless of how busy the Network is. The Customer gets a guaranteed
level of connectivity, and the Network might be able to optimize resources according to
actual Traffic demands.
In addition, the Service is easily upgraded or changed by reconfiguration of the
2. Tolled Bandwidth:
("ISDN B-Channel" "Bandwidth on Demand")
As compared to making a temporary voice quality communication link over the network
by having the network allocate a dedicated bandwidth facility end-to-end to the
Subscriber for the time-duration of the link, and for which the Subscriber pays;
the Customer now has Direct Access to the Digital Bandwidth, at the customer's
end of the link.
3. No-Guarantee Micro-messenging:
The Customer connected to the Network, can communicate delay-insensitive
information with multiple physical locations simultaneously, over a shared
network which guarantees no particular Service Level between end points.
